Sen. Elect Scott Brown, . . RINO?!?

So the more I read up on the newly elected Junior Senator from Massachusetts, I wonder if the GOP took a very close look at his credentials before they hopped on his band wagon. Senator Elect Brown was down almost 30 points untill he fond some traction with the anti Health care movement. And once the polling started to trend his way, the National GOP was there for him in full force. But who is this guy.

Is the new GOP pro choice?!?
this decision should ultimately be made by the woman in consultation with her doctor,
Does the new GOP support Gay Marriage?
States should be free to make their own laws in this area, so long as they reflect the people's will as expressed through them directly, or as expressed through their elected representatives.
And where is this new GOP movement on Health Care?
Health Care
I believe that all Americans deserve health care coverage
. . .
I support strengthening the existing private market system with policies that will drive down costs and make it easier for people to purchase affordable insurance. In Massachusetts, I support the 2006 healthcare law that was successful in expanding coverage, but I also recognize that the state must now turn its attention to controlling costs.
He still embraces the 2006 State Health Reforms that many are claiming as proof why the President's plan won't work.
Romneycare was a disaster, an entirely predictable one.
Something tells me that the new Senator from Mass may just like being a Senator, and will be willing to at least make some moves to color himself Purple if he wants more then two years in Congress.


UPDATE: And unlike the Obstructionist party, Senator Franken remains consistent in when to seat Senator Elect Brown:
despite the fact that he waited eight months and three days after Election Day to be sworn in, Franken wants Brown seated as soon as he's officially certified the winner in Massachusetts.
That is a Senator, being Senatorial regardless of party affiliation!

Any percevied delay will simply be waiting for reults to be certified:
Under Massachusetts law, cities and towns must wait 10 days for absentee and overseas ballots before certifying their own results. Working at breakneck speed, it's possible Brown could be sworn in as early as Jan. 29, though the Boston Globe estimated that Feb. 3 is a more likely date.
