The Natural Truth by Michael Graham
Does Brad Jones WANT The MA GOP To Lose?
“Hey, what can I say? Democrats LOVE me!”
When you’re a mediocre, ineffective politician, the last thing you need is competition.
Rep. Brad Jones, the “leader” of the tiny band of Republicans in the House doesn’t have to worry about competition from Democrats–they’ve already got him pinned down and bought off. His concern is a vibrant, viable GOP that makes waves on Beacon Hill by taking on the Democrat establishment.
No change = “Brad keeps his premium parking spot and fully-funded staff.”
Change = “Brad has to actually accomplish something.”
Perhaps that explains why the GOP leader is trying to get someone from a far-Left Democratic organization on the MA GOP’s state committee.
Brad is backing Andrea Crupi for a slot on the party’s committee. Crupi is also a member of another “political committee”: NARAL–one of the biggest supporters of Democrats in Massachusetts and across the country.
In addition to its extremist stances on abortion far outside the mainstream of Americans on the issue, NARAL is also a huge supporter of Democrat candidates. They have never endorsed a Republican for president (they did give former GOPer John Anderson $5,000 to run against Ronald Reagan as an independent), and they’ve endorsed exactly ONE Republican governor in Massachusetts– Bill Weld in 1990.
Instead, they’ve handed out literally millions of voter guides and put people on the streets to elect Democrats. Every election cycle, one of the key groups Democrats turn to for Democrat support of Democrats is NARAL.
So why is Ms. Crupi of NARAL even being considered for a spot on the Massachusetts GOP committee? It could be the fact that, when she’s not helping NARAL elect Democrats, Ms. Crupi works for…
Rep. Brad Jones! She’s his “Director of Local Affairs.”
Remember: NARAL works to defeat members of Jones’ own GOP caucus and to fend off challenges from GOP candidates taking on Democrats.
To anyone who wants to elect Republicans, the idea of a NARAL member on your committee makes as much sense as putting a member of the Beef Council on the board of PETA.
But hey–it works for Brad. Check that NARAL voter guide 2012 again. You’ll notice that there was one Republican (albeit one without an opponent) who got the endorsement of NARAL in Massachusetts:
Coincidence…or something more pathetic?
Could we please have some Republicans running the Massachusetts Republican party? Or is it Brad Joneses and Gabriel Gomezes all the way down?
