    Well I see where the heavy Democrat state of Mass voted for Markey to be their Senator to replace John Kerry. They voted for an old white Democrat (Markey) over a young vibrant Hispanic Republican former Navy Seal by the name of Gabriel Gomez.

    And this is from the supposed enlighten liberal state of MA. Democrats just won't vote for a Hispanic. Bigotry is alive and well in the Northeast. Sad.

    Bisi, Bigotry has nothing to do with it. It is a sad state of affairs when you feel you did well only losing by 10 points. A bigger travesty was the loss of Scott Brown to Lie-a-watha Warren. This state of Mass/Taxachusetts is only two steps ahead of where the rest of this Country of ours is headed.

    Good post Bob. In MA. one could find a broken tree branch--Say it's a Democrat and get it elected. Sad State we have here. Hopefully in 17 months Gomez or Brown will run again.

    Having lived here for 60 years I agree its a sad situation. I voted for Gomez because we need FRESH BLOOD representing our views in the Senate! The vote for Markey is the SOS in this state; well he's been in office for 100 years he must be doing a good job! Keeping in mind we voted in Romney & Brown so having a Republican hold a high level political position is possible in this state, not easy but possible!

    To be honest I have to agree with Zardozforty Gomez did not come-off polished enough to instill confidence and gain more votes. I think he has a lot of promise though. I have to question what kind of support "if any" did the Republican National Committee provide? Gomez seemed to be running his campaign based on what he collected in campaign funds week by week. Bottom-line my perception was he was on his own win or loose. I'd like to have seen more national endorsements for him...Obama flew into Boston to make-out with Markey on stage in front of the state. Gomez needed a little Sr Republican love as well but I did not see any.

    We'll have a Redux in 17 months and hopefully be better prepared!

    It's always been a difficult thing in NE, to beat all the dead democrats in an election. Add the new tech savvy parasites and I'd say it's become impossible......

    Gomez needed to tell us ALL just exactly why he stated that he fully supported oBAMler's position on 'gun control' and other issues. Gomez, had he won, would have been a 'republican' but for sure not a 'conservative republican'. Do these here United States of America need ANOTHER R.I.N.O.? I don't think so. Better the known Markey than the unknown Gomez especially after his public statements.

    Of course, I --could-- be wrong.

    Good luck as a Republican in the Soviet Socialist Republic of Mass. Jesus could run as a Republican and lose.
