    As more and more of his senate votes come in, I've become less and less a fan of Scott Brown. And to think, I once endorsed him for president. :lol:

    As of yet I'm undecided, but I'm giving strong consideration to voting for Warren in 2012.

    It's too bad that "conservatives", "teapartiers", "conservative independents", "dittoheads", beckheads", Christian conservatives".....or whatever Republicans call themselves....have no room for moderates anymore.

    You have to be a hateful jaded old bigoted prick to fit in anymore.

    Let's see: On one side we've got Elizabeth Warren, unconfirmed Empress of the Consumer Protection Agency, Obama toady, and enemy of capitalism.
    On the other we've got Scott Brown, the deciding vote against Obamacare.
    Yeah, sure, Brown is a Rino. But in MA that's what passes for a Republican. Romney and Giuliani aren't Republicans outside of their respective bases.

    Brown is at least better than Olympia Snowe.

    Brown's votes are bought and paid for by the American Petroleum Institute.

    It doesn't get any more republican than that. :thup:

    Brown ran as an Independent Republican. I see nothing in his record that shows that he is not an Independent Republican. I may not agree with him all the time, but I'd rather see more Scott's than more of the Party-Over-Country brigade.

    I supported and voted for Brown because I believed he was independent.

    Turns out I was wrong.

    He voted with the GOP on 80% of votes (according to wiki). Assuming that's close, I see no reason why that's a bad thing.

    I like Scott. I liked him during his campaign and I haven't seen anything that has changed that opinion.

    Brown has repeatedly voted in favor of massive tax breaks for oil companies, like his no vote on S 940 for example. If he was truly an independent and objective Senator who's primary concern was to serve his constituents, he'd want these unnecessary tax breaks eliminated.
