Romney, Santorum, Newt and the gang hit NH hard – Obama appoints consumer watchdog: Brown, Warren agree – Continuing Murray crash speculation and new photos

GRANITE GRUDGE: Every four years, for about a week, when the sky fades to gray and no one is happy, Massachusetts ceases to be the most important part of New England. But it will all be over soon once the Great Untaxed of our northern neighbor hold their presidential primary and vote for one of these brave Americans. But for right now, it’s all NH all the time – even John McCain stopped by to endorse Mitt Romney.

PRESIDENTIAL PREROGATIVE: And why is what they’re running for so important? So one of them can one day recess appoint a nominee that wasn’t going to get through Congress. That’s what being president is all about. Both Sen. Scott Brown and presumed opponent Elizabeth Warren are cool with President Obama’s appointment yesterday of Richard Cordray as the nation’s first consumer protection chief, heading an office Warren was key is establishing.
