One of Baker’s most strident defenders was on Greater Boston recently to rally the troops by reminding us all that Charlie is a centrist who is unable to distinguish himself from Martha Coakley, Steve Grossman, and maybe even Don Berwick. The Republican primary is just how many days away?
This isn’t an aberration. Check out John Nucci’s article in the Herald.
It’s pretty easy for Baker to appear centrist and moderate when his right-wing opponent is supporting an end to all tax credits for certain industries, and declaring that health care insurance should be like auto insurance, covering only catastrophic claims, or arguing that the state should not have enacted recent gun control measures.
…Baker can continue to hold on tightly to his more moderate and centrist ideology…
Baker is who he is, and he is not a right-wing Republican.
…when recently asked whether he is a conservative or not, Baker flatly refused to adopt the label.
Just think how rare that is – a Republican running away from being considered a conservative.
