Mr. Brown went to Washington................

“I spoke at length over a 40 mile bike-ride with Senator Kerry about it,” Brown said exiting the floor after casting his vote Thursday. “It was this morning, and he’s a very good athlete.”

      Well isn't that grand, I hope you were able to stop by the side of the road and have a nice picnic too!
We back in Massachusetts who voted you into office thought it would take at least a year before you went over to the 'dark side' and voted with your comrades on the other side of the isle.  We who run businesses here in the state only wish we had time to bike-ride 40 miles.  I know you must believe this is a good bill, but everyone knows that Fanny and Freddie (Barnie Frank) were to blame for much of this financial down fall and they are left completely out of the reform bill!  Mistakes are made and some will even be corrected Mr. Brown.

House Financial Service Chairman Barney Frank (D-Mass.) also talked to Brown – telling him that his concerns about the impact on home-state financial firms such as Fidelity and State Street would be addressed.


  1. Brown is better than his opponent would have been - but not much better. Still, it is encouraging that Massachusetts didn't send a full blown Socialist whacko to Ted Kennedy's seat. I keep telling myself that it could have been worse.

  2. oh, man, Lady Di, isn't this the biggest disappointment? LL's could have been worse, but when I THINK of how excited some of us were when Brown was elected.
    Of course, he didn't really lie...he did say he is his OWN MAN and doesn't vote down party lines... but, geeesh, WHAT a disappointment.
    You're so right about the Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae NOBODY READING ANYTHING? DO THEY KNOW NOTHING?
