"But lesson learned: when something seems too good to be true, it probably is. My short sale dream turned into an unexpected nightmare because I believed the Realtors when they told me everything was going OK. But they never gave me any proof, and when things fell apart, I wasn't in control and I couldn't get things moving again. Once I took charge, though, things were resolved pretty quickly. Next time, I'll be in control from the beginning.

Perhaps "the political class" isn't doing anything to stop the construction of an Islamic community center because the Constitution forbids it. Even worse, the advertisement I've mentioned engages in just the sort of religious bigotry that the First Amendment is meant to guard against.

Later Maddow explained why the concept of the GOP as fiscally responsible is not based in reality, “Well, you end, you end up with the situation which again you’re back to choice vs. referendum because Republicans, like great strategists like Mr. Gillespie, can argue about how it’s all about spending, it’s all about debt. But it’s not just talking about the past to say, “When Republicans have had the reins, this is what they’ve done: two wars not paid for, prescription drug benefit not paid for, two tax cuts that mostly benefited the rich not paid for. They put all that stuff on the deficit, $1.3 trillion sitting there as–in a deficit when Obama took over, after the previous Democratic president had handed him a surplus. If you talk about–if Republicans want to run as this fiscally responsible party, it’s neat, but it’s novel. It’s not how they’ve actually governed.”

The Baker campaign tells FOX25 that the web ad is just a tongue-and-cheek attempt to highlight the governor's position on taxes and was not meant to be deceptive, but Patrick’s campaign said this in a statement:
“Like much of Charlie Baker's campaign, this juvenile ad is based on a lie. Unfortunately, technical difficulties acknowledged by FOX25 made it impossible for the governor to hear the questions from the anchor.”
