If Gomez could upset the democratic establishment in Boston and take that seat it could have huge implications in 2014. Obviously he's the best man in this race but with entrenched liberal politics in Boston it will be a longshot.

It would be a huge upset if gomez won. I highly doubt he's within 10% points when election time rolls around though. Dems outnumber reps by a wide margin,it would take dems staying home & not voting for Gomez to even squeak out a victory.

He got a huge boost by being ground zero for bombing. Then I guess the democratic candidate attacked him a little too hard and because he was a navy seal that may have backfired a bit. Don't underestimate what being a seal and a brave man can get your peace. Also he's younger and the democratic base not that energized for a special election.

Gomez better hope the dem base isn't energized, that's his only chance of winning. Being a navy seal is honorable, but that isn't going win it for him. Let's not forget,Gomez is what they found at the bottom of the trash heap,most everyone that the GOP wanted to run chose not to enter the race.

Actually, Gomez is a liar,he's been lying throughout the entire campaign. Gomez was a navy seal,but does not mean he is the best choice to be a senator. He was not the first,second, or the 3rd choice for the GOP to run in the race. He's owed our gratitude & respect nothing more.

He was only Vietnam era underwater demoltion. They didn't have Seals yet. But.... even though he can be a bit crazy he was someone who tried to lower and reform taxes. He's socially liberal which I am also but we disagree on abortion. He's not a big spender and was a proponet of mass transit which I guess is a good idea in any city.

You've got your military history wrong here, buddy. The SEALs were in operation during Vietnam. The USN Underwater Demolitions Team were just not part of the SEALs yet. And no, I didn't just look this up on Google, I read it in a book like people do, called Combat Swimmer. Actually a very good read.

But I digress.

Nice deflection on Warren, by the way. But did you know that his opponent was in the Army as well?

Seal first came into existence in 1962, so they were there in Vietnam. And having spent some time with bunch of UDTs, they were just a ****ing crazy and their SEAL brethren.

BTW being in the SOF or the military doesn't make you "better" person for elected office. Different skills sets and requirements.

I'm more impressed what this guy has done in business then his Seal background. Why vote in some DC career politician whose only campaign line is if you vote for him, and enough other repubs get elected, then we could lose the Senate.

That would turn me off. I want to hear what you will do for the state, not how you are just beholden to your party. Check this guys votes. He is 100% for his own party. Better hope the bill that dems want isn't bad for your state. This dude would suck up to Pelosi and vote away.

Bull****.

If you were more impressed with that, you would have brought that up first, instead of A) bringing up the fact that he was a SEAL and B) comparing his military service to the ethnicity of someone who he's not even running against.

No, more than likely you heard he was a SEAL first, got a boner like you Republicans always do for politicians who served in the military (as long as they agree with your views), THEN looked up who he actually was.

Ok so being a success in business isn't impressive to you at all. Do liberals see everything now as just luck or unfair advantage?

I have no problem with rich businessmen being President. I have a problem with Republicans.

People who are successful in business tend to look at money as the great all to end all. Corporations do not care about people, they care about profit. Just because you can make money does not mean you are going to be a good politician or have the people's best interest at heart.

Would you really want Donald Trump as your President?

Would you like Liberal Bill Gates, Warren Buffet or George Soros as President? They are are great business people and made lots of money so you should have no problem with them, right?

The major impediment to government working anymore is an out-of-control Right Wing radical movement bordering on anarchy, determined to either get rid of government, or failing that, to make sure it can't work, even at it's proper role. It takes nothing for a single member of the so-called Tea Party to tack an amendment onto a bill that promptly kills it, or better yet, forces the opposition to vote against it and be blamed for it. The basis of our form of government, as George Washington put it, is "accommodation." The Right Wingers have thrown that out. In other words, they no longer believe in our style of government. They believe in "My way or the highway." That's not republicanism. That's not democracy.

I'm sick of hearing this same old propaganda **** about the "socialists" and "liberals" and blah, blah, blah. There hasn't been a liberal piece of legislation in this country in thirty years. Every move we have made for three decades has been Right, Right and more Right. We took down the progressive tax system, deregulated banks and Wall Street, dropped the effective corporate tax rate by 20%, reformed welfare to the point that half the recipients got kicked off, reduced funding across the board on every "liberal" program you can name, created a bunch of corporate friendly trade policies that destroyed the labor movement in this country, allowed corporations to rewrite our energy, water, clean air and forest policies, created a foreign policy that funnels wealth into the military/industrial complex, and watched as the income disparity exploded, the burden of government was shifted to the backs of the middle class, and the poor were kicked to the curb. Now they want to kill food stamps?

I can see why the propaganda is so shrill from the Right. They don't want the American people to know that it is their philosophy and their policies that have governed America for the last thirty years. If there is one thing that terrifies Republicans more than anything else, it is taking responsibility, and it is their policies that have destroyed America. We gave them all the money. Where are the jobs?

And then the lunatics on the Right scream that our problems are caused by the Left. It's like living in a freak show.

Now he has Pelosi defending the NSA, is starting a proxy war with Russia in Syria, let islamic radicals take over Libya, Egypt and lost our foothold in Iraq. His economy still stinks and now he wants to unveil his final attack on it, the carbon tax. His dream of making coal fired plants too expensive could happen if his party wins in 2014. Also he just removed a huge chunk of land that should have been drilled on. Basically now that his agenda falling apart my theory is he will try and salvage it by going environmental freak and really screwing up the economy.

I don't even know where to start. First of all, this is coming from someone who thinks Bush was a good president. You lost all credibility there, for starters.

But lets get into just the theory behind this.

You're saying that because we had high hopes for this new guy after someone we really hated, and because the new guy didn't live up to our expectations, that we should hate the new guy more than the guy who we hated in the first place.

So by that logic, we should all hate Manning more than Tebow, because man, that Tebow guy was bad, but we thought we would get a Super Bowl with Manning and didn't.

It basically pays their salaries ya know? and it most definitely pays for all of their toys. Instead he went against his Sec of State and called for him to step down. Then before that instead of playing hardball with Iran over an occupying forces agreement he easily just gave up because he didn't want to stay. Why? because he said he wouldn't in election. Another election yr promise based on fantasy but this one he followed through on. Shows he is shortsighted. Now iran owns Iraqs airspace and does it what it wants.

The people revolted and chose to have a democracy. **** dictatorships. We spent 8 years under the POS GWB proving that sometimes that the worst possible person who could get elected can get elected. It comes with the territory in a democracy, sometimes the person you want doesn't get elected.
