I remember when Bill Clinton used to visit Chesley in Amberley Village (before he moved to the most expensive Indian Hill home in Hamilton County). My daughter and were stopped while Cross County Hwy was cleared for the motorcade, during rush hour I might add.

I was amazed at the amount of police protection, paid for by me and others, so my president could swing by a fund raiser and collect dollars.

I think the host of any fund raiser should have to foot the bill for the police protection needed for the event.

Somewhat confused: Mitt's vehicle is heading into the fundraiser, and Hillary's is heading out...Why is Mitt taking money out of the machine before heading in? It's not as if Lindner needs cash from the candidate...

Linder has a ton of money but Chesleys wife is a judge. Which stinks more? a judge who is supposed to be party neutral fundraising for anybody.

John 10:1-19 KJV
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but cometh up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out. And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers. This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them. Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep;, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep. The hirling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep. I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine. As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep. And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd. Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.

Patrick blasts Romney for medical aid stance
By Susan Milligan, Globe Staff | September 29, 2007

WASHINGTON - Governor Deval Patrick called his predecessor, GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, "shameless" yesterday for criticizing a federally funded children's healthcare program while touting his own Massachusetts healthcare plan.

Globe front page |
Sign up for: Globe Headlines e-mail | Breaking News Alerts Like many Republicans, Romney opposes the expansion of the national State Children's Health Insurance Program to provide insurance to children in lower-income families. Congress has voted to expand the program, which is funded in part by the states, but President Bush is expected to veto it.

Democrats and some moderate Republicans say the SCHIP program provides critical coverage to children in low- and moderate-income families, but conservative Republicans call the idea the first step toward socialized medicine.

Patrick said SCHIP is a crucial element to expanding and maintaining coverage in Massachusetts, where Patrick estimated healthcare costs are likely to take up half the state budget within the next 10 years.

"Without SCHIP, then health reform, which he's been bragging about, fails. It's the same to me, the same behavior, as signing the bill and vetoing the funding for it, which is what he did before he left office," Patrick said in an interview with Globe reporters and editors yesterday. He was referring to a tax provision of the Massachusetts healthcare plan that Romney excised with a line-item veto.

"He's a nice fellow, but a shameless candidate," Patrick said of Romney.

The SCHIP program, which is up for renewal this year, is meant to help needy families obtain health insurance for their children. The program is targeted at families earning twice the poverty level or less, a little more than $40,000 for a family of four. But the law also allows states to apply to the federal government to cover more families. That provision is intended to help states where the cost of living is higher.

Massachusetts allows families earning three times the poverty level to obtain SCHIP coverage, providing help to 90,500 children in the state, according to statistics culled by the office of Senator Edward M. Kennedy, Democrat of Massachusetts and an architect of the original program.

Some 112,000 children in Massachusetts have no insurance, Kennedy's office said. The bill passed by Congress and headed for a presidential veto would allow the Bay State to add 27,400 children to the program over the next four years.

Opponents of expanding the program do not like that it relies on an increase in the cigarette tax to pay for it; some Republicans contend that Democrats will suffer at the polls for voting for a tax increase.

The House does not have enough votes to override a Bush veto, but Democrats have vowed to bring the bill up again and again, putting some moderate Republicans in an awkward position as they head into their 2008 reelection campaigns.

"We will be back tomorrow and the next day and for however long it takes to see this bipartisan bill become law. The president has broken his promise to America's children," Kennedy said.

Romney seeks new angle on fund-raising

By Foon Rhee, deputy national political editor December 4, 07 01:30 PM
By Michael Levenson, Globe Staff

Putting a new twist on the race to raise money, Mitt Romney's national finance director is asking supporters to "sponsor" one of the candidate's television commercials in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, or Florida.

"You don't want to miss your chance to elect Governor Mitt Romney," Spencer Zwick writes in an email released by the campaign today. "The ad you sponsor could be the one that puts Governor Romney over the top!"
