Re: Obama 2008 - Why we need to welcome Gabriel Gomez to the Republican Party
Gabriel Gomez will need to speak on his Obama 2008 support. I am sure he feels misled,
and is unhappy with the direction of the country since he was elected. I saw in Open Secrets he
gave the max to Republican candidate Mitt Romney in 2012 and was very critical of Obama on
military leaks, Bin Laden with the OPSEC SuperPAC.
And are we not trying to bring on and welcome Hispanic successful and solid citizens like
Gabriel into the Republican party? What message do we send attacking him for converting
over to the party of Liberty, family values, lower taxes, strong military, smaller Govt? I am going
to give a former Navy Seal the chance to lay out his vision before I pass that judgement.
I guess many today would not have welcome a certain individual to the Republican party that
voted for Democrats until his 50's, including uber liberal FDR three times. I am glad that we
gave Ronald Reagan that chance, and he turned into a shining beacon for the Conservative
movement. Heck we would have excluded Rick Perry in Texas too by the same logic.
I am willing to listen more to what Gabriel Gomez brings to the party and listen to what he has to
say. As a former Navy Seal, son of immigrants, fellow concerned citizen and parent, He
deserves that chance. We need to foster new energetic leaders, and work with new Mass
GOP chair Kirsten Hughes in building a sharp contrast to the Democrats and DC elites in
Massachusetts. I think a Gabriel Gomez Senate candidacy is a breath of fresh air.
