Response to Former US House Speaker Newt Gingrich current trip to Massachusetts where he criticized the State Republican Party for failure. He overlooked these facts
The Massachusetts Republican Party has lost its way. During the Dukakis era Republican leaders like Steven Pierce in the legislature focused on making government work and trying to route out inefficiency, waste, and management often building coalitions with Democrats in the legislature for the cause.
When the succession of Republican Governors in the 1990's and this century of Weld, Cellucci, Swift, and Romney only the faces of the Executive Branch changed with the same or more patronage waste, fraud, and abusefrom the Big Dig to contractors, consultants, vendors, providers. and the Human Services Industrial Establishment causing taxpayer rape with little or no accountabilitymas what went on during previous Democratic Administrations.
How can the Republican party be trusted now or agian?
