Self Serving Democrat?s

Sen, Kennedy [D]~is adamantly requesting for the legislature to give the power of appointing a senator to Democratic Gov.

Isn't this reversing the law Democrats were adamant in enacting in 2004? The one that took away that power from then-Gov. Mitt Romney, a Republican.

So which is it? Or can laws be easily changed when you are a Kennedy? or a Democrat? Both?

  • In a way, yes, it is very self-serving. They want to make sure a democrat gets the seat. They are scared that in this political climate the people of Mass. may actually choose a republican. (If there are actully republicans in Mass.) I say let the people choose who they want and not have an "appointed" senator.

  • Who's pretending???... I thought this was the era of Change, Responsibility, and Transparency? According to the liberal leaders in Washington, those were the words used....

    Sooooooooooooo what are leaders/politicians doing right now? Serving themselves......

    PA-LEEEEEEZE. Nothing is going to change until we voice our opinions, make them work for us and allow a third party to rise up. jmo.

  • I think it's really funny that Kennedy was the one that pushed that legislation and now he wants to undo his mistake. This is a good example of how things in government aren't that easy to reverse which is also why many of those on the conservative side of things have huge problems with the health care reform they are pushing for. Hindsight is 20/20.

  • because you only see what you want to.

    LOL, what else is there to see here???    

     In 2004 Kennedy worked with Dems~ who voted and used power to TAKE the conrtol of the Gov[who happened to be a Republican] away. In 2009, he wants to give that power BACK to the Gov/? (who happens to be a Democrat)...

  • You only spew the jmo that is told to you.

    Um, durrrr. You can look for yourself genius.  Since it's law you can look it up and see who sponsored and co-sponsored it and see what it says.  It's not being said to her, it's being read BY her.  If you did a little more of that you might comprehend a thing or two, oh wise Anonymous.

  • Hopefully the people of Mass will have the foresight to elect neither party.
