    I am a big Scott Brown supporter. I could care less if he is called a RINO
    (Republican in name only).

    I like the fact that Brown votes the issues, not the party.
    I am afraid that Elizabeth Warren will be a rubber stamp for the left.
    She strikes me as Martha Coakley part II.

    I do not mind when Brown crosses the aisle and votes with the democrats.
    I support some thing's the democrats support.

    I agree with Brown supporting the democrats 15 billion dollar jobs bill.

    Brown has only been a US Senator for a short amount of time and I
    applaud him for getting The Stock Act passed. The stock act prevents congress from benefiting in the stock market from insider trading knowledge.

    The "Stock Act" probably was not a big hit with John Kerry.
    Kerry over the years has investied in businesses just before those businesses benefited from government (or more precisely, taxpayer) largess.
    Poor John..... I think he will survive.

    I support Warren, and it's nothing against Brown because I think he's probably the most sane and decent Republican Senator currently serving. However, given that the national GOP is bat**** crazy, I believe we should elect as few Republicans as possible until they break through their fever and return to their roots.

    Told this story last week, got a last minute invitation to a high end golf tournament, afterwards there was the dinner. Our foursome sat with another foursome, who I did not know...

    We introduced ourselves, and one of the guys from my foresome said discretely that I was sitting next to some important dude from the Mass. Republican Party, while listening to both conversations, heard him say that Brown is seriously thiinking about flipping parties as he is completely fed up with the rights social agenda..

    But I don't have a dog in that fight.. I have a new independent that I am supporting and probably working for, Abel Collins..

    I'm not Mass ... and I like Brown ... but I like Warrens message of being tough on corporations and more spending on GDP (less on defense).

    Warren is f-in crazy.

    Brown is as good as they get in Massachusetts and he's built up quite a machine in the last couple of years which is surprising. The whole "Democrats for Brown" schtick has a lot more to it than show -- business is getting behind him, especially healthcare businesses which are critical.

    I'll support Brown, but I'm not always with him 100%. Don't think anyone is with any politician. But I don't see him as a radical.

    I can't put in to words here what I think about Warren. Her campaign promises about fighting big corporations, and how the system is rigged against you...what a joke. Let's see someone ask her why she kept the name "Warren". Worked the "system" much at Harvard Liz? Eh, but what's a little nepotism, right? And the problem with the cost higher ed is teachers like YOU who pull $300+k for teaching one class. What about OWS?? She distanced herself from that pretty quickly...as a founder of the movement.

    Warren respresents so much if the problem she's claiming to be against it's laughable.

    Elizabeth Warren....:rofl:

    The fact that woman still has a shredd of credibility says alot about voters in general. The fact that she might even win her race (no pun intended), says all you need to know about this state. Can you honestly imagine if a white republican lied about being a native american to further his/her career? Patters' head would explode. Needless to say, I'd never, ever support a know nothing novice socialist hypocrite liar like Warren. :D

    I voted for Brown 2 years ago. The jury is still out on him imo. I'm going to vote for him again, as I do like his willingness to buck his party if need be. I just think there's a little too much pandering for perception going on. I understand that comes when ur on a short term contract, and can't alienate voters, but pushing to keep the 2 engine spending cuz it was local was something I'd have prefered to see go the other way. Obviously no local pol will ever agree to fed money that helps his voters, but it would have showed me some serious stones. Especially if you believe spending is a problem.

    They'd probably explode in similar fashion as they did with Mark Kirk's lies about his military service.

    Oh wait, what's that? They didn't??

    Scott Brown owns a truck

    Elizabeth Warren owns a brain



    Knowing the residents of Massachussets, Scott Brown will win. I hope I'm wrong.

    Always find it amusing that the right needs to define a woman by how she looks... guess that will never change.

    Many people look like what they are, Warren is one of them.

    Well with BO at the top of the ticket in MA hard to see Brown winning over the impostor.

    I think Brown wins pretty easily.

    I support Brown and I voted for him vs. Coakley.

    He's from Massachusetts, which is important to me.
    He's moderate and works with people well.
    The Congressional inside trading law.
    He has done nothing severe enough to lose my vote.

    Warren hasn't run a good campaign and doesn't strike me as having the political skills to operate in Congress effectively. While I like her ideas about re-regulating banking and trading and her position on a lot of social issues, I don't think that's quite enough to take Brown's seat from him...at least not for me.

    I don't have any horses in this race but I would love to see Elizabeth Warren get the nod, she's right on the money with Corps,Jobs and Edu, some of her other stuff might be off a bit but there is no perfect candidate!

    Shouldn't Brown be out driving a truck somewhere? talking to everyday folks about everyday life? lol.....

    Elizabeth Warren doesn't impress me, but Scott Brown doesn't either. His current crop of TV ads are some of the lamest I've ever seen. I'll probably vote Warren just to help Obammy do his thing in his second term. :singing:
