Menino: Nobody Can Beat Brown

By on 1.10.11 | 1:34PM

Boston Mayor Tom Menino likes Scott Brown's chances in 2012. A lot.

In an interview with the Boston Herald, Menino said, "There's nobody that can beat him."

Well, Menino should know. Last November, Menino was elected to an unprecedented fifth straight term for the Hub's top job.

Although Menino has been plagued by health problems since his re-election, when he speaks people should listen, mumbles and all.

Woody Allen said that 90% of life was just showing up. Well, Menino has followed that adage. If there's a community event anywhere in the city chances are Menino is going to be there. I think it would only be a slight exaggeration to say that Menino has probably walked on every street, road and public alley in Boston. While Menino might not represent the entire Bay State he does know the public mood of a substantial part of it.
