    While I appreciate the reasons why he was appointed, I have to oppose the way it was done. Changing rules every time it is convenient is silly. Either allow the governor to pick a replacement, or don't, but don't change back and forth depending on the governor.
    This was an excellent example of how Democrats have lowered the political bar to new all time lows with this naked display of outright hyper partisan hypocrisy.

    Here is a Democrat Assembly that during a Republican Governors term voted to eliminate his ability to appoint members to Congress, then with a Democrat Governor, the partisan desire to implement Government run healthcare and need to have a 60 vote filibuster proof margin in the Senate trumps doing the right thing and they reverse the law they implemented during the Republican Governorship.

    But don't look for this blatant display of partisan political hypocrisy on the front page of major newspapers that are in the tank for Liberal hyper partisan politics, it will be on perhaps page four much like the LA Times.

    This despicable new low in politics is brought to you by the same party that LIED to the American people promising them transparency, bi-partisanship and fiscal responsibility.

    You just cannot fabricate the low level of partisan hypocrisy it takes to be a Democrat these days.

    Please note that the new low standard being set by Democrat partisan politics demands that in the future, should Republicans commit such a naked display of hypocritical partisan politics, Democrats should be the LAST ones to complain; the same low standard that allows for a President that gets blow jobs from interns in the White House.

    That is all.

    88% control along with the Governorship is a CLEAR MANDATE that citizens what Democrats in power.

    Of course right wingers are going to complain about this liberal State now having a voice in the Senate during the healthcare debate!

    Just like they complained when Texas, pushed by Tom Delay, broke with decades of precedent and gerrymandered it's Congressional districts out of turn to help remove Democrats.
    Yes there is nothing wrong with this naked display of partisan hackery and hypocrisy; and of course you will be okay with this new low standard being set by Democrats when Republicans resort to the same despicable hypocritical naked hyper partisan tactics right?

    The problem is the Democrats changed the rules to suit them.

    Vacant sentae seats WERE filled by the governor, but in 2004 that was changed in case Kerry won the election.

    Now, with the pendng Obamacare legislation, the Dems need all the senators they can get,so rather than stick with the law they made in 2004, they are changing it BACK to the pre-2004 law.

    This doesnt have anything to do with the will of the people of MA, it has everyting to do with partisan political power.

    Bravo Redress, something we can both agree on for a change.

    That's what I hate about politics. Hypocrisy seems to be the name of the game, for all parties and all ideologies. It's OK if our guys do it but not OK if your guys do the same thing.
    What a fascinating argument; Republicans COULD have tried the same thing therefore Hypocrisy goes for all ideologies and let's forget what an OBVIOUS naked display of hyper partisan political hypocrisy for setting a new low standard in US politics these Democrats have committed.

    I've found that people who complain about "partisan politics" usually don't know much about the issues, civics, government, etc.

    I always ask them what IS this big issue that the right and left should just come together in a spirit of harmony and solve? Give me an example of what this final product would look like?

    If they can attempt to name one, the answers I get almost always involve the Dems caving completely into the demands of the right.

    Like they wish for in the health care debate....Dems you drop the public option and we will let you pass a worthless bill that will make you look stupid in the end.

    See? Isn't that kind of them?

    Folks when your are dealing with radicals (and the GOP today has been taken over by radicals) there is NOTHING wrong with partisan politics.

    Wealth redistribution is a deal breaker. Throw it out as a party plank.

    You are never going to talk the robbed into not minding, so stop proposing robbing in the first place.

    I think based on Obama's appointments, and Reid's "not wasting a good crisis" it is the Dems who have been taken over by their radicals.
