Those of you who don't follow the Pats or Belichick, please abstain.
Without listing a bunch of reasons which would make me generalize about the left and right, I would be shocked if Belichick were a Conservative. Although I don't know, I clearly think he's a Liberal. But I'll still be his fan anyway
He is too nice to be a Repubican.
Heh, personally I think he's socially liberal, though considering how well he manages the salary cap it wouldn't surprise me if he had fiscal conservative leanings.
Moderate Republican, at a guess, hence why I voted for conservative.
Conservative. He's a believer in rules and order. He demands a high level of personal responsibility and accountability. He has no problem rewarding exceptional effort, and is just as quick when it comes time to cut loose someone who won't give 100%.
Belichick seems like a Conservative Democrat...old school JFK kind of man.
Compassion for those who need it, help for those that seek it, and disdain for those that steal and/or abuse it.
A true, old fashioned conservative does not need power. Many conservative Republicans crave power as a method to achieve their means.
Many, old fashioned, blue-collar mentality people of old were old fashioned moderates/conservatives...Belichick comes from that mold.
I think he's too much of a pragmatist to be a party line guy. Social moderate (though I think he could care less about most social issues), fiscally conservative.
My guess is independent, the choice of intelligent men...
Well, here's what we do know. He has said that he's Democrat; he worked with Jim Brown and visited prisons to meet with prisoners (something that sounds fairly liberal to me); he believes in the team first, the individual second; he is not greedy and doesn't cave in to or respect greedy players. Based on those facts, it strikes me that he's more liberal than conservative. Chevy's description ignores the realities of both conservatives and liberals. There are some in each camp who follow the straight and narrow, while there are others who do not.
True, but the average liberal hands-out hoping for the individual to make use of it to better themselves, while the conservative waits to see the effort first before handing-out.
As to visiting prisons - I see that as neither left nor right. I'm all for rehabilitation, as long as it does not supplant punishment. Serving time in punishment, and the chance to speak with someone like BB, a person who is a major success due to hard work and commitment, could help the rehab process.
