Week In Review: Superstorm Sandy; Election Countdown

Our panel talks about the week’s top stories:

– Sandy slammed into the East Coast Monday, leaving communities in a disastrous state just days before the presidential election. Some are still in the dark, without water and food.

– Also, the fallout from the meningitis outbreak spread to NECC’s sister company, Ameridose, triggering worries over drug shortages. The company is voluntarily recalling all of its products after a recommendation from the FDA to improve its sterility testing process.

– Lastly, the last big push in Election 2012. Republicans and Democrats alike are campaigning across the state and the nation as the clock ticks toward Nov. 6.

    Romney ran for governor as a moderate but didn’t really govern as one.  He spent the end of his term going around the country trashing liberal MA to distance himself so he could run for president in 2008.  Even Romney-care was an idea out of conservative think tanks (before the Republican party went crazy).  Romney dusted off a racist law regarding out of state marriage seekers to prevent MA from being the “Las Vegas” of gay weddings.

    Did we really need a third debate from Brown?  Professor Warren doesn’t look like an Indian.  My wife and daughters are women.  I’m the most bipartizan senator ever.

    I’m tired of the four year old whining.  If she is still getting the name wrong, she hasn’t heard enough coverage.  Future undecided voter!
