The R's go at it on GBH

The only televised debate between Brown and Robinson was on last night with Emily Rooney on GBH. There are stark differences in the hard left in Brown, and the moderate middle of fiscal conservativeness of Robinson. I agreed with Brown on just two points: one is that Deval is holding back on stimulus money to shovel ready projects to boost his re election efforts for 2010 and the other was to get that money out there now, as it was intended. Brown's opposition to Cape Wind is a killer for me, but he seemed well informed on all the subjects in Washington. Brown's condescending attitude towards Robinson was clear and doesn't play well in Peoria.

Robinson was clearly prepared to stand somewhere near the left center and would even agree with him when he made a point of trying to enter into a dialogue with the Tali bin. His historical points of reference seem to be true, when talking about Afghanistan, the war and tax cuts. He makes more sense to me.. than the hard left of the ticket.

The obvious media snubbing of the R's is shameful and does not bode well for increasing voter interest. They are.. in essence, controlling our choices...that narrows our exposure to what might well be better for us in the long run, but they know better than we I guess.
