    Supports 30,000 more troops in Afghanistan

    ===============

    On another thread, someone wrote that Brown will push for getting us out of Afghanistan. Clearly that is NOT his position.

    ===============

    Voted NO on emerging technologies, math & science Fund

    Relevant platform section:part IV: Economic Growth: Workforce Training: "We are aware that one out of three workers in this state need additional skills to maintain their employment in today's changing economy.... In the face of a global economy and advanced technology, workers need ongoing skill development and job training. We support increased public and private funding for business and labor to address the Massachusetts skills gap."

    ===============

    I have also read that Scott Brown will push for jobs and job training. Clearly, he has no desire to push such an agenda.

    So the question becomes, "What are Scott Brown's positions and how they compare to those of the people who voted him into office?"

    ===============

    You can find an official listing of Scott Brown's positions here. Compare them to what you think his positions are to get a "feel" of what this new Senator stands for.

    I think he's against ditching a mistress in 20 feet of water.

    You think?

    That's debatable.

    Like they say, the reason he won was voter anger, and nothing to do with him as a politician.

    It says that Scott Brown is a hard core Conservative.

    But is that what they voted for?

    Besides, considering his stand on abortion, I suspect even the hard core white wingers won't "appreciate" his positions.

    Well, he appears to be a mainstream conservative in the contemporary sense.
    I never even heard of the guy before the Mass. special election.
    We'll see just how "independent" he is as the Senate gets to business.

    "mainstream conservative", just curious, wouldn't that make him "anti abortion rights"?

    That's a new term for me. WTF is a mainstream conservative?? Is that like conservative-lite, or something?

    He's not a Marxist and that was all it took to get him elected in a state with 11% Republicans.
