  1. Sugar coated Baker addition in this post (1 Reply)

    Baker knew the same details as Walsh and Baker should have expressed his reser ations on the guarantee. He didn’t and Walsh did. Huge omission here. Baker was a paper pusher and not a leader. It’s vevy evidet here.

  2. don't completely agree ... (0 Replies)

    if the legislature prioritized our budget to expanding the T, I don’t think that everyone would be saying that the government is naturally corrupt. I don’t think that is where the commenters are coming from. We have outside parties which have different priorities, so there is a natural skepticism. Plus, being “reality based”, who in their right mind would accept that we’re going to make money as suggested in proposal 2.0. That’s just foolish. To even say that brings the BS Alert to level 5.

    Baker campaign: transparency. Charlie “Fitzgerald” Baker, the next JFK

    Baker governor, eh, what we do now is good. thanks for asking though.

    So, that’s Deb Goldberg’s fault?

    Ah, into the abyss.

  5. your comments are not makeing sense to me ... sorry (2 Replies)

    but the point specifically is that the gov campaigned to do things differently and transparency. That happened. (please detail specifically if you think why that didn’t occur)

    at the first discussion about HIS office being open, unlike others past (A-F’n GAIN like he campaigned) the statement is that he liked things the way they are.

    What is confusing here?

  6. the statement speaks for itself ... (1 Reply)

    Gov. Baker … believes everybody should comply with the current law as it stand

    Why on earth do you say that when you campaigned against the very statement? Sorry, that’s not a resounding endorsement.

  7. turfed transparency (2 Replies)

    sounds nice in a campaign, but he never had any intention to being open and transparent.

    Not sure of your statement, seems like you are parsing words, Baker style. The problem is exactly what he campaigned against, Mitt and Patrick for that matter used the Governor’s office as a shield. Baker rallied against that and in a matter of days being in office, it seems that his press bobos reached out with the middle finger.

    Take down the #ConfederateFlag at the SC Capitol. To many, it is a symbol of racial hatred. Remove it now to honor #Charleston victims.

  9. how would it not be peaceful (0 Replies)

    are you suggesting that if Haley had lowered Dylann Roof’s flag, it would be some kind of non-peaceful attack?

    Please, tell me more. I’m interested in your response.

  10. If expanding the MBTA is a high priority (0 Replies)

    then just do it. Don’t need the IOC or the Olympics.

    We’re doing a lot of thing right in MA, so I’m not going to buy any argument the the gov is inept. There is just no appetite for the large expenditure.

    I’m just so done with this whole thing. What would be better is if you take your own advice and discuss how everyone would benefit from the investment rather than the Olympics is the answer to or problems.

    sorry for the late response.

  12. It feels like Boston2024 is being run by John Spano (0 Replies)

    The 30 for 30 was good, I enjoyed how he walked into Fleet and they just gave him 80 million.

  13. Sounds like Charlie Baker is still all in .... (0 Replies)

    No one ever brought it to my attention. It was never part of the discussion — ever, not once. OK? Never,” Baker told reporters, though he emphasized that he’s more interested in seeing the revamped plans Boston 2024 has promised to release next month. “I’m not interested in looking backward.”

    So basically,

    No one ever told me, but that’s history, no sense complaining about taxpayers being on the hook for millions. Let’s look to the future people.

  14. Is Warren the left's version of Ted Cruz? (3 Replies)

    that’s what I’m trying to figure out. The Sierra Club notwithstanding. Jeesh, that’s like quoting the Heritage Foundation in favor of Cruz. Anything less “Fair and Balanced” out there?

  15. didn't mean to downrate .... (1 Reply)

    just wanted to know who the knob was who down rated applicable information.

  16. downrate is nuts on this comment ... (1 Reply)

    at this point you have to start to wonder.
