    You missed your chance to blame it on public education and why we need vouchers

    I agree here with both. I'm optomistic about Brown. That said, I want to see what happens. Despite how Navy is trying to paint him he seems to be a rather pragmatic social conservative, which is the kind I can get behind. Doesn't like gay marriage, but also isn't in favor of BIG GOVERNMENT telling the states what they can and can not allow (and yet some of our "conservatives" are all for trampling state rights and going for BIG GOVERNMENT). Doesn't like abortion but would focus more on disallowing late term and keeping government funding from going to it then fighting to overturn roe v. wade. Etc. I don't mind, and actually agree, with some segments of Social Conservatism....it is just to the extremes, specifically the BIG GOVERNMENT extremes, that some take it that turn me off and will keep me from voting for them.

    Unlike Navy, I don't criticize politicians for not sticking to their platform when I like it and then commend them/hope for them to change it and essentially lie straight to the face of the people when it helps me. If Brown keeps to what he promised and shown during the campaign, and is a good fiscal conservative and a pragmatic social conservative he'll have a fan for some time. If he lied to the face of the people and becomes just yet another mindless big government Republican (I refuse to call that conservative) then he's worthless to me.

    One thing he has in common with Reagan is that he did some less than stellar entertainment in the past.

    I believe his pragmatism is the key reason he was able to gain the support of a sufficient number of independent voters to win the election. In many ways, the formula he used is not very different from that deployed by now Governors Christie and McDonnell in their electoral victories.

    Not if all those seats had to run today.

    This is sending a clear message. Why do you deny it?
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
