Carr: Carlie Baker’s baying like a moonbat

Deval’s ‘twin’ on immigration

 

By:

Howie Carr

It’s time for Charlie Baker to make up his mind whose side he’s on.

The law-abiding taxpaying U.S. citizens, or the hordes of freeloading illegal aliens swarming across the Rio Grande.

The dithering GOP front-runner put his foot in his mouth again this week, at a debate where he was asked which current Republican politician is his role model.

Charlie’s brain froze up. Oh dear God, they would insist on a Republican. What a conundrum for a Harvard man, being asked to name a good Republican. First there was dead silence, then finally Charlie asked if he could pick Ronald Reagan. No, he was told, Dutch is dead. More silence. Finally he blurted out:

“Jeb Bush.”

Jeb Bush! Another Republican with an asterisk — a RINO. Jeb Bush has only said one memorable thing in his whole career, and that was when he said illegal immigration is “an act of love.”

A love of welfare, certainly.

Baker’s latest faux pas comes just a month after the Obama administration tried to dump hundreds if not thousands of undocumented Democrats on the commonwealth. Gov. Deval Patrick had invited them in — after all, the state only spends $1.8 billion a year on welfare for illegal aliens, so what’s another few hundred million per annum ad infinitum?

The elected officials in the communities that were going to be devastated by this influx of thousands of new Tsarnaevs raised holy hell. But Charlie Baker backed Deval, his fellow Harvard grad.

“I think it’s incumbent on the states to be cooperative with the federal government on this issue,” he said on July 21, “given the humanitarian crisis that’s at hand.”

Charlie, how about the humanitarian crisis facing the U.S. population, being forced to take in millions of disease-ridden, non-English-speaking, unskilled non-workers and having to support them forever? Whatever happened to charity begins at home? This is not their home, Charlie, it’s ours. How about that humanitarian crisis, Charlie?

“I think it’s important,” Charlie continued, “for the federal government to be very specific with the commonwealth about exactly how it’s going to work.”

Here’s how it’s going to work. We Americans will work, and they won’t. We’ll support ourselves, and we’ll support them.

Now, we know how Democrats feel about this — they’re hot to trot to import a new welfare-dependent underclass, to keep themselves in power. They’ve gone from being the party of the working class to being the party of the non-working class.

The other night on WBZ, Democrat candidate Don Berwick was asked if he’d ever heard of Matthew Denice, the Milford motorcyclist run down and killed by a drunken illegal. Berwick had no idea who this U.S. citizen victim was, and when he was told, this moonbat’s moonbat didn’t seem to care.

“You can pick anecdotes to make any point,” Berwick sniffed.

There you have it. Illegal alien wants handout — humanitarian crisis. American killed by drunk illegal alien on welfare — an anecdote.

Charlie, listen to me. You can’t get elected by trying to out-moonbat the moonbats. To paraphrase Harry S Truman, if you give voters a choice between a Democrat and a Democrat, they’ll pick the Democrat every time.

On St. Patrick’s Day at Halitosis Hall, Deval Patrick made a joke: “It turns out that Charlie Baker and I are identical twins.”

It also turns out, Deval wasn’t kidding.

Here Comes The ObamaCare Tax Bill – New Year’s New Obamacare Taxes – More Obamacare Fee Increases To Begin In 2014 – Charles Payne

December 26, 2013 in Government, ObamaCare, Politics, President Obama, White House Fraud

obamacare feeNew Year’s New Obamacare Taxes – More Obamacare Fee Increases To Begin In 2014 – Charles Payne

The cost of President Obama’s massive health-care law will hit Americans in 2014 as new taxes pile up on their insurance premiums and on their income-tax bills.

Most insurers aren’t advertising the ObamaCare taxes that are added on to premiums, opting instead to discretely pass them on to customers while quietly lobbying lawmakers for a break.
But one insurance company, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama, laid bare the taxes on its bills with a separate line item for “Affordable Care Act Fees and Taxes.”


The new taxes on one customer’s bill added up to $23.14 a month, or $277.68 annually, according to Kaiser Health News. It boosted the monthly premium from $322.26 to $345.40 for that individual.
The new taxes and fees include a 2 percent levy on every health plan, which is expected to net about $8 billion for the government in 2014 and increase to $14.3 billion in 2018.
There’s also a $2 fee per policy that goes into a new medical-research trust fund called the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute.
Insurers pay a 3.5 percent user fee to sell medical plans on the HealthCare.gov Web site.
ObamaCare supporters argue that federal subsidies for many low-income Americans will not only cover the taxes, but pay a big chunk of the premiums.
But ObamaCare taxes don’t stop with health-plan premiums.
Americans also will pay hidden taxes, such as the 2.3 percent medical-device tax that will inflate the cost of items such as pacemakers, stents and prosthetic limbs.
Those with high out-of-pocket medical expenses also will get smaller income-tax deductions.
Americans are currently allowed to deduct expenses that exceed 7.5 percent of their annual income. The threshold jumps to 10 percent under ObamaCare, costing taxpayers about $15 billion over 10 years.
Then there’s the new Medicare tax.
Under ObamaCare, individual tax filers earning more than $200,000 and families earning more than $250,000 will pay an added 0.9 percent Medicare surtax on top of the existing 1.45 percent Medicare payroll tax. They’ll also pay an extra 3.8 percent Medicare tax on unearned income, such as investment dividends, rental income and capital gains.
Meanwhile, the Obama administration touted a surge of more than 2 million visitors Monday at HealthCare.gov, plus about 250,000 calls to ObamaCare call centers.
“Volumes remain high but not equal to [Monday] and we have not had to deploy our queuing system on the site,” said Julie Bataille, a spokeswoman for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, referring to a virtual waiting room that is activated when the site is overloaded.
“We are taking thousands of calls at our call centers, which remain open until midnight, and we are seeing thousands of visitors complete enrollment online,” she said.
It wasn’t smooth sailing for everyone on the troubled site.
Software techie Jeff Karaaro tweeted in frustration: “Got three different codes trying to submit plan choices. No [one] can tell me what they mean. I nor call center can complete my application due to error.”

We need You to Support and Elect Frank Addivinola to the MA 5th Congressional District

November 11, 2013 in Accountability, Congress, MA Political Machine, Politics, Stopping Obamanations, Stopping Socialism, Transparency

FrankThere are only 17 days left to help elect a  regular guy and non-socialist to the MA Congressional Delegation! A person who would be accountable to you, and not some Washington Machine!

The first thing that you should know about this race is that the Special Election is on Tuesday December 10th. The second thing that you should know is that the MA Democrat Machine  has put up another  Socialist,  Katherine Clark to replace  Socialist Ed Markey in the 5th CD. This according to the KeyWiki website, http://www.keywiki.org/index.php/Katherine_Clark  which states that The Democratic Socialist of America (DSA) supported Clark in 2004 and 2008. You can view the entire Keywiki post at the end of this article.

“DSA support in 2004

According to to the Boston Democratic Socialists of America newsletter, The Yankee Radical, September 2004, page 8, Boston DSA endorsed several State Senate candidates in 2004. These included Katherine Clark, challenger, Democrat (Melrose).[3]

Mass Alliance endorsement

In 2008, Mass Alliance endorsed Katherine Clark for the vacant State Rep. seat in the 32nd Middlesex Dis-trict (Melrose, parts of Wakefield). Clark has been Chair of the Melrose School Committee, and was endorsed by former Rep. Mike Festa and Attorney General Martha Coakley, for whom she was then working. “She also aced the Alliance questionairre”.[4]

[ You may ask what is the relationship between the Mass Alliance and DSA?]

DSA connection

According to Boston Democratic Socialists of America newsletter, The Yankee Radical, March 2006.[5]

We (Boston Democratic Socialists of Americacontinued our electoral work with the Massachusetts Alliance (formerly the Commonwealth Coalition), a grouping of unions, civil rights groups and other progressive forces who strive to provide effective support in a targeted number of state legislative races. Through the Alliance we strengthened our relationship with key allies and, by door-knocking, phone-banking and mailings, helped elect Linda Dorcena ForryChris Speranzo and Pat Jehlen to the State House. Boston DSA also supported (on our own) the successful City Council re-election races of Felix Arroyo in Boston and Denise Provost in Somerville.

Our plans for 2006 include projects voted as priorities by DSA’s recent National Convention, especially focusing on the low-wage economy (i.e., Wal-Mart, healthcare). And we’ll maintain our involvement with the Alliance—currently we’re working on the State Rep. races of Claire Naughton in Foxboro and (again on our own) Denise Provost in Somerville.

DSA endorsement

In 2010, Katherine Clark, running for Massachusetts state Senate ,Middlesex and Essex, was included in a list of the mainly Massachusetts candidates endorsed by the Boston Democratic Socialists of America, published in the The Yankee Radical:[5][6] “

Lopsided Race Begins In 5th Congressional

Posted October 15th, 2013 by ironmike

It will be ugly!  The Dems are determined to hold onto the seat that Markey slept infor 37 years. The unions will be out in force – along with Planned Parenthood,  Emily’s List,  and all the left-over Acorn socialists. 5thCDWinners

Frank is a great candidate,  and anybody who respects the US Constitution should break ranks with their past and vote for him.

The Election is Tuesday, Dec 10th.

Clark is a perfect addition to the Obama Cartel – she even spent time working in Chicago, – and won the Globendorsement. But some Progressives are having a lot of heartburn over her support of Coakley’s wiretapping bill.

Perhaps now Sheriff Koutoujian can get back to his day job – and finally issue a report on why his predecessor James V DiPaola killed himself.   Funny how Democrats refuse to answer direct questions!

The following article about Katherine Clark is excerpted from  Trevor Loudon’s KeyWiki Blog at www.keywiki.org and documents Katherine’s FAR-LEFT Socialist leanings.

Katherine Clark

 

Katherine Clark was sworn in as a Massachusetts State Senator, in January 2011 representing Lynnfield, Malden, Melrose, Reading, Stoneham and Wakefield. She was first elected in March 2008 to represent Melrose and Wakefield in the Massachusetts House of Representatives.

Senator Clark serves as the Chair of the Joint Committee on Public Service and the Vice Chair of the Joint Committee on Community Development and Small Business. She also serves on the Joint Committees on Education, Public Safety and Homeland Security, Veterans and Federal Affairs, and Senate Committee on Post Audit and Oversight. Senator Clark is a member of the Advisory Council for the Department of Early Education and Care. In early 2011, Senator Clark was appointed to the Center for Women in Politics and Public Policy Advisory Board at the University of Massachusetts Boston.[1]

Clark’s husband, Rodney Dowell, is an attorney and executive director of the Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers program.

Congressional primary

In October 2013, State Sen. Katherine Clark won the Democratic primary in the special election for Massachusetts’ 5th Congressional District.

Clark took 31.6 percent of the vote in the seven-way Democratic race to fill now-Sen. Ed Markey’s Boston-area House seat. Her closest competitor was Middlesex County Sheriff Peter Koutoujian, who won 22 percent.

State Rep. Carl Sciortino, an openly gay candidate who got Internet and media attention for a TV ad that featured him “coming out” to his tea party father as a liberal, came in third with 16.1 percent of the vote. State Sen. William Brownsberger came in fourth with 14.6 percent, followed by state Senate Majority Whip Karen Spilka with 13 percent.

The Democratic state senator was heavily favored to win the general election in the solidly blue 5th District, where President Barack Obama received 65 percent of the vote in 2012.

Clark, who was backed by the pro-Democratic women’s group EMILY’s List, led in most of the little polling that was done in the race.

Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Steve Israel said in a statement that he’s confident Clark will win in the blue district.

“Katherine will be a voice for the middle class, and I am confident that the people of Massachusetts’ 5th district will agree, and in December will elect her to this Democratic seat, which President Obama won with two-thirds of the vote in both 2008 and 2012,” he said.[2]

Education/ career

Katherine Clark’s professional career includes service as a prosecutor, school committee member, General Counsel for the Massachusetts Office of Child Care Services, and Chief of the Policy Division for the Massachusetts Attorney General. She has been an advocate for seniors, the environment and social justice as a top policy maker.

Katherine Clark is a graduate of St. Lawrence University, Cornell University School of Law, and the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.[3]

In her early career she worked as an attorney in Chicago, then moved to Colorado where she worked as a clerk for a federal judge and later as a staff attorney for the Colorado District Attorneys Council.She moved to Massachusetts in 1995 and became general counsel for the state Office of Child Care Services.[4].

Elected to the House in 2008, she has made her colleagues focus on making the funding formula for public schools fair to all communities. Katherine has been named Legislator of the Year by Citizens for Public Schools.

Progressive “vetting”

On September 12 2013, eight progressive organizations including Democratic Socialists of America hosted a forum with five Democratic Party candidates, including Katherine Clark, to fill new Senator, Ed Markey’s seat in Congress.

Our goal is to give Massachusetts’ voters a better understanding of the differences between the five candidates and their positions on important issues to these groups.

Forum Part 1 The questions in this first segment are on the environment and climate change, the Citizens United decision and fair elections, and the Congressional Progressive Caucus’s “Back to Work” budget. Forum Part 2 The questions in this second segment are on income inequality, military spending, the Syria crisis and Iran, and the Israeli settlements in Palestine. Forum Part 3 The questions in this third and final segment are on women’s rights and reproductive rights, and how to be an effective progressive in Congress.

The forum was sponsored by: 350 MassachusettsBetter Future ProjectDemocratic Socialists of AmericaMassachusetts Peace Action, Greater Boston Move to AmendNational Organization for WomenProgressive Democrats of AmericaProgressive Democrats of Massachusetts. The forum moderator was Jordan Berg Powers of Mass Alliance.[9]

Scott Brown: Listen, the bottom line is the Republicans have offered, and it makes common sense that the president should have what is called “Transfer Authority”.  The ability to get in there and Kind of reopen and tweak the Sequester in a whole, and actually delegate  – do thoughtful, judicious, methodical cuts. For example in the military, they need that. Give it to Heigl.  Let him go in with a fine tooth-comb,  no a scalpel I should say, to make the cuts that you need to make.

The President does not want this authority [“Transfer Authority”] because he wants to make the Republicans look bad. Everybody knows it and it’s time to show real leadership.”

Strassel: Jumping the Sequester

By KIMBERLEY A. STRASSEL

When the president canceled White House tours, he revealed his claims as ludicrous.

The phrase “jumping the shark” describes that gimmicky moment when something once considered significant is exposed as ludicrous. This is the week the White House jumped the sequester.

The precise moment came Tuesday, when the administration announced that it was canceling public tours of the White House, blaming budget cuts.

The Sequesterer in Chief has insisted that cutting even $44 billion from this fiscal year will cause agonizing pain—airport security snarls, uninspected meat, uneducated children. Since none of those things has come to pass, the White House decided it needed an immediate and high-profile way of making its point. Ergo, it would deny the nation’s school kids a chance to view a symbol of America.

The act was designed to spark outrage against Republicans, yet the sheer pettiness of it instead provided a moment of clarity. Americans might not understand the technicalities of sequester, but this was something else entirely. Was the president actually claiming there was not a single other government item—not one—that could be cut instead of the White House tours? Really?

The cancellations were an open invitation for the nation to dive into the gory depths of the federal budget—and re-emerge with a debate over waste and priorities. Over the past week, an entire cottage industry has sprung up of journalists, watchdog groups and average citizens reporting on the absurdities of federal spending. Republicans have lit up Twitter with examples of indefensible projects (#SequesterThis).

We’ve learned that the White House employs three calligraphers, who cumulatively earn $277,000 a year. The Environmental Protection Agency gave $141,000 to fund a Chinese study on swine manure. Part of a $325,000 National Science Foundation outlay went to building a robotic squirrel.

The government gave a $3,700 grant to build a miniature street in West Virginia—out of Legos. It shelled out $500,000 to support specialty shampoo products for cats and dogs. A San Diego outfit got $10,000 for trolley dancing. The feds last year held 894 conferences that each cost more than $100,000—$340 million altogether. But Mr. Obama is too broke to let American kids look around the White House.

Columnist Kim Strassel on how the world did and will not end because of sequester.

Speaking of that, the tour stunt itself is turning into a PR fiasco. ABC reports the cancellations save a total of $18,000 a week. A Forbes opinion piece noted the cost of cutting the tours was equal to about two hours operating Air Force One. Speaker John Boehner twisted the knife, announcing that while Congress was also getting hit by sequester, it had planned wisely, and tours of the Capitol would continue. Come on down folks! Visit the government branch that knows how to prioritize!

To top it off, a group of cherubic sixth-graders from St. Paul’s Lutheran School in Waverly, Iowa, became a national sensation in a YouTube video pleading with the White House to reopen tours. “The White House is our house. Please let us visit,” they beg in unison. The White House hasn’t yet responded, no doubt being too busy overseeing its $27 million project that helped fund pottery classes in Morocco. (No joke.)

This is the opportunity Republicans have been pushing for, to pivot the sequester discussion to the problem of spending, and they are taking a lead from Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn. This was the guy, remember, who in 2005 offered an amendment to remove funds from a little thing he called the Alaskan “Bridge to Nowhere” and to divert them to a vital bridge destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. The Bridge to Nowhere became such an embarrassing symbol of waste, Congress ultimately gave up earmarks.

Not all Republicans appreciated that episode, but they took away a couple of valuable political lessons. One, the public responds strongly to examples of waste. And two, the way to claim the high ground in such a debate is to contrast that waste with projects of real importance (like the Katrina bridge). Both lessons are tailor-made for today’s sequester fight.

Sen. Coburn himself has daily been sending letters to federal agencies, demanding that they justify their decisions to furlough existing workers rather than forgo new hires or fancy conferences. His efforts were one reason the Department of Agriculture spent this week stuttering out a justification for its sponsorship of a wine junket in California.

Utah Sen. Mike Lee has been producing graphics that show, for instance, pictures of free government cellphones next to pictures of border agents—with the Twitter tag #CutThisNotThat. Since late February, the House GOP has been highlighting its own #CutWaste projects, each of which contrasts Mr. Obama’s call for taxes with an example of embarrassing government outlays.

The White House’s shark-jumping moment has given these efforts new attention and threatens to take the sequester debate to a place this overconfident administration never imagined. The whole point of the White House’s effort to make the cuts hurt was to convince Americans that they couldn’t live without big, sweeping government. Now Americans are asking how the White House justifies living with it.

Rampant EBT Welfare Fraud Ignored by Gov. Patrick So as to not Alienate His Illicit Voter Base

January 7, 2013 in Deval Patrick, MA, MA Political Machine, Politics, Voter Fraud, Welfare, Welfare Fraud

We  have recently learned that Gov. Patrick’s Department of Transitional  Assistance (DTA) sent out voter registration letters to 500,000 welfare recipients in early August 2012. The DTA likely only provided a limited legal defense against the lawsuit pushed thru by Elizabeth Warren’s daughter, in association with New England United for Justice, whose purpose was to register welfare recipients at government expense.New England United for Justice  is a reconstituted offshoot of the now defunct corrupt voter manipulation group, Association of Community Organizers for Reform otherwise known as ACORN.

As a result of the the taxpayer supported Democrat welfare voter registration drive, 19,000 letters were returned as undeliverable.  The cunning Deval  and DTS did not broach the subject either during or after the election. Neither would they release the information when the Herald learned of the deception and originally requested the information.  It took a Freedom of Information Request from the Herald to uncover the fraud. Deval  attempted to skirt disclosure of the EBT Welfare fraud and  Stonewall the public’s right to know, in order to  protect a  vital Democrat State party voting bloc.  These 19,000 welfare cheats  are  continuing to receive illicit benefits because Deval says that DTS  doesn’t have the means  to track or to stop the payments.

Just these  19,000 welfare cheats alone account for about 1/5 of our states mid -year 2013 Deficit.

Shaunna O'Connel

Had enough yet? You can do something about this if you call your Senators, Representatives and especially the Governor’s office and tell them you want REAL  EBT Welfare Reform and want them to pass Representative Shaunna O’Connell’s (R-Tauton) EBT Reform Bill, which she has once again filed this month.

 

You can’t ‘scrub’ up EBT mess with a dirty rag

Jan 6, 2013
By   Howie Carr / Boston Herald

Another day, another 19,000 anecdotes.

Anecdote — that’s Gov. Deval Patrick’s favorite word to describe any scandal involving EBT cards and his constituents. It doesn’t matter how solid the information is, how many law-enforcement agencies are involved in the takedown, he always shrugs off the latest rip-off of the taxpayers.

Anecdote.

And now he’s looking at another 19,000 of them — that 4 percent of the welfare community that the Department of Transitional Assistance (a name that grows ever more preposterous) could not locate.

Those 19,000 MIA’s collect — based on an average of $400 a month — $91 million a year. That’s the estimate of Rep. Shauna O’Connell (R-Taunton). But the governor Friday went into his best pooh-pooh mode.

“That may not be indicative of a problem,” he said with a straight face. “We’ll know when we do the scrubbing.”

Scrubbing? More like a sponge bath would be my guess. This is a program that needs a good cold shower. But the governor, himself a former welfare recipient, recommends … nothing, basically. Call it professional courtesy.

Let’s not forget how the “scrubbing” began. Granny Warren’s daughter filed a lawsuit claiming the DTA hadn’t been proactive enough in registering the state’s assorted loafers and layabouts to vote for her carpetbagging fake-Indian mom. Then — bingo, the hacks located $274,000 for mailings, complete with post-paid envelopes for the gimme girls and guys to send back their voter registrations.

Have you ever gotten a post-paid envelope from the commonwealth? No, I didn’t think so. They’re not for taxpayers, just for the non-working classes to take part in a Democratic voter-registration drive.

The Patrick administration has known about these appalling EBT numbers for months now. They were only released after this newspaper filed a Freedom of Information Act request. Which is the same way it was revealed that Lt. Gov. Tim Murray was doing 108 mph when he mysteriously crashed his state vehicle in November 2011.

So much for transparency at the State House.

It takes months for a law-abiding citizen to get a gun permit in this state. But if you sign up for welfare with a fake name or address, no problemo. Nobody ever checks up, apparently.

When Rudy Giuliani was elected mayor of New York in 1993, he insisted that all welfare recipients show up in person to renew their applications. A quarter of the “recipients” never appeared. It’s hard to respond to a letter if you don’t really exist.

I know, that’s just an “anecdote.” So here’s one more. Years ago when the transit cops in New York and New Jersey started busting fare-jumpers, they made an astounding discovery. A quarter — there’s that number again — of those arrested were carrying welfare cards from both New York and New Jersey. In other words, they were collecting in two states.

And now the Mass. welfare rolls will get a “scrubbing” — wink, wink, nudge, nudge. Here’s what really matters to Deval and his gang of plunderers. On Thursday, as soon as the successor to the outgoing watchdog of the Governor’s Council, Mary-Ellen Manning, was sworn in, the governor nominated Mary Beth Heffernan for a judgeship.

Yes, that Mary Beth Heffernan, probably the worst public-safety secretary in state history. Too incompetent to properly broom Tim Murray’s auto accident or Annie Dookhan or the Sheila Burgess bad-driving fiasco, so they give her early retirement on the bench for $130,000 a year.

Taking care of dodgy old hacks, that’s what Deval et al. are about, not cleaning up the disaster that is the welfare state.

By the way, I still haven’t heard back from Deval on my generous offer to provide him with one hour per month on my radio talk show to explain how wonderful he and his administration are.

Governor, the offer stands.

Suggested first topic: scrubbing.

Folks get ready for another carpetbagger to make a run for the White House from MA. Deval has probably spent more time at the White House and on the campaign trail for Barack than he has spent on MA soil and he embraces the same ideology.

Will he be Barack’s Surrogate in 2016?

Could you imagine him as our Commander-in-Chief? If his Administrations patronage appointment of  a drunken menace, Shelia  Burgess to  MA Highway Safety Director is any indication, he will do just fine. Besides, the lack of any record or paper trail for her patronage appointment, shows that he is competent to follow Barack because he mastered the art of deniability and obfuscation.

BOSTON (FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) Governor Deval Patrick says state officials followed proper protocol in destroying some of the record related to the hiring of former Highway Safety Director Sheila Burgess.

While he was in Washigton and campaigning for Barack around thecountry , his State Police Crime Lab chemist was busy doctoring over 34,000 lab investigations that have resulted in placing hardened criminals back on our streets.  H’mmm, I wonder who may have appointed her?

The Governor is being called on to fire the “Highway Safety” Director because her driving record is worse than a drunk’s. Her driving record has 34 entries since 1982, and her license was “nonrenewable” until November 1st because of a failure to pay local excise taxes. The Telegram reported:

“Three Republican state representatives from Central Massachusetts yesterday called on Gov. Deval L. Patrick and Lt. Gov. Timothy P. Murray to fire Sheila Burgess, the state’s highway safety director, whom The Boston Globe reported has a driving record that includes seven accidents, four speeding violations, and two failures to stop for a police officer.”

It turns out she was only in that position because of political favors. She used to work as a fundraiser for U.S. Congressman James McGovern, a Democrat from Worcester, and she also was a principal in a firm that worked for Massachusetts’ current Democratic governor Patrick when he was a candidate for mayor about 10 years ago. For this reason, the three Republican state representatives are also calling on the House Committee on Post Audit and Oversight to investigate the Governor’s administration for patronage.

Deval Patrick for President 2016!!!

Well folks, before you laugh his name is being tossed around by the secular progressive left up here in Massachusetts as well as other bastions of secular progressivism as an encore to Barrack Hussein Obama! Moreover, he and Obama are cut from the very same piece of cloth, know each other very well, speak the same language and embrace the destruction of the Constitutions as we know it.

Patrick was the author of the famed “Yes we can” chant that Obama adopted in 2008. Patrick’s name has surfaced on numerous occasions as being in line for a cabinet position in the Obama administration. Just recently Patrick granted children of illegal immigrants in state tuition dovetailing off of the executive order that Obama handed down last summer where by children of illegal’s shall not be deported. Patrick sighted that order in his executive order.

Best yet, Deval Patrick, once he got going would make Barrack Obama look and sound like William F. Buckley! This guy is a “Moon Bats Moon Bat”. The left loves him, the papers fawn over him, conservatives loath him and the day that he throws his hat into the ring, he has a better than 50% chance of being the next President.

Would Patrick not start out by being the prohibitive favorite in all the blue states that Obama won? Wouldn’t the upper Midwest go for Patrick i.e. Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa without much of a fight? If Obama could win Colorado and Nevada in this economy, would not Patrick do the same four years from now? How about Florida and Virginia? Won’t they have even more government dependants and minorities by 2016?  Who needs Ohio?

Barrack Obama proved beyond any doubt, if nothing else, that its not the reality of the state of the Union, the reality of the economy, our influence in the world or lack there of but what the uninformed voter’s perception of the aforementioned is. So Patrick could and will deliver the same type of message that Obama did and all indications are it could very well work again.

Just look around. The United States of America is wallowing the worst recovery ever helped in large part by the Obama’s administrations policies. We have subjugated our foreign policy to the UN. We have no energy policy. The family as the bedrock of society is eroding further yet. Jobs are very few and getting worse as more of our manufacturing goes over seas, with no end in sight. Nothing is working and everything is either stalled, going backwards or barely creeping along. Yet in spite of all this, if one looks at Obama’s job performance, it will be at better than 50%. If we are to believe the print media a vast plurality of Americans think he’s just great.
