    Ok, everbody say it with me: "But thats how politics has always been done!" First the hypocrite Democrates take away our right to vote by changing the laws they changed just a few years ago, and now they go back on their promises for doing so. In other words, they lied. Whatever happened to that ethics reform bill they passed in order to raise our taxes. How's that working out for ya?


    Senator Paul Kirk angers critics with Martha Coakley nod - BostonHerald.com

    State Republicans blasted interim U.S. Sen. Paul Kirk yesterday after he broke a legislative promise to stay out of the U.S. Senate election and endorsed Attorney General Martha Coakley over GOP candidate Sen. Scott Brown.

    “You can’t trust these people,” House Minority Leader Brad Jones told the Herald. “It’s just another example of the hypocrisy of a one-party system.”

    Kirk said he didn’t think twice before endorsing Coakley, even though the Legislature reversed Bay State laws and allowed Gov. Deval Patrick to appoint him based on the promise he would stay neutral.

    “I think she’s by far the better candidate, and it’s important at some point to have your voice heard,” Kirk said yesterday at an event where prominent members of the Kennedy clan endorsed Coakley.

    An ailing Sen. Edward M. Kennedy - a close friend of Kirk’s - was the first to suggest legislators should prevent the temporary appointee from running for the seat to avoid the appearance of a political handoff.

    Embattled House lawmakers on both sides of the aisle took Kennedy’s suggestion a step further, attaching a resolution to the controversial bill blocking the appointee from “endorsing any candidate in the special election.” The language is nonbinding because legislators can’t legally prevent anyone from running for office. But Democrats vowed that the appointee would honor legislative wishes.

    House Speaker Robert DeLeo (D-Winthrop) declined to comment. Senate President Therese Murray’s office also stayed mum.

    Bridgewater University political professor George Serra said Kirk’s endorsement violates the spirit of the agreement.

    “If he’s truly a placeholder, he really should have no role in the election process,” Serra said.

    Massachusetts Republican Party spokeswoman Tarah Donoghue said she’s not surprised.

    “They went back on their word just like they went back on the law,” Donoghue said in a nod to Kennedy’s role in stripping Former Gov. Mitt Romney of his appointment powers when U.S. Sen. John Kerry was running for president.

    For his part, Kirk said he didn’t think his endorsement will “make a large difference” in the Senate race.

    “As a former Democratic chairman,” he said, “it’s probably no surprise what side I’d be on.”

    The point Is, the democrats according to the MSM, Katie, MSNBC, PBS, Jon Stewart, and all prominent liberal dip sh!ts is this, the Democrats are supposed to be the party Of Kindness, Compassion, Caring, Protectors Of Civil Liberties, Champions Of Diversity, Guardians Of The Minorities, they see themselves as The Truth And The Way when in reality they are nothing but a Tribe of Vicious Double Standard, Crooked, Lying f-cking rats, I used to be one of them until the Far Left Wing Batty Loons Took Them Over.
    God Damn It.

    You're 100% corect. The problem is is that we have a President who ran a campaign promising change to the way politics has always been done. And what excuse do we get from Democratic Senators to explain the back room deals the are using to pass legislation? "Thats how politics has always been done!"

    And then we have a governor and Democratic majority state senate the promises to do they jobs "more ethically" so that they can pass a law that raised our taxes, including a 25% raise in the sales tax.

    Politics is a hard-nosed business, and there are many similar examples regardless of politics. There are politicians on both sides of the fence who broke their term limits pledge, redistricting in Texas is a joke (where Republicans strategically place prisons to alter census counts to favor Republican districts), many conservative states have in effect double jeopardy that denies exfelons the right to vote (many of whom are black, and likely to support Democrats). If you have any ideas how to make politics more ethical, you should suggest them. But, it's certainly not a party specific thing. In fact, many believe Republicans stole the Presidential election in 2000 and Democrats stole it in 1963.

    As Winston Churchill said, “democracy is the worst form of government except all the others that have been tried.”

    The Democrats are trying to muster some last minute support. Martha obviously has succumbed to that same sense of entitlement her potential seats predecessor had. Now she has been mouse like quiet, meaning she either thinks she has it in the bag because of the state she's runnining in or she's afraid to open her mouth. Take your pick, if Scott Brown wins it would really be a sign of changing times.
