In a district where Scott Brown won, Sean Bielat mounts a serious challenge.
'I don't consider myself a tea party candidate," Sean Bielat tells me over dinner. "I don't know what it means." But an hour later Mr. Bielat, Rep. Barney Frank's Republican challenger, receives a hero's welcome at the Spindle City Tea Party, a gathering of nearly 200 citizen- activists in this economically depressed mill town. As he approaches the stage, they stand, applauding and chanting "Go, Sean, go!"
What he tells them is consistent with this reporter's view of the tea party: "I'm starting to think that people want to take this country backthat people no longer believe that the government has the answers for our betterment, that the government can tell them how they should use their money. People believe that they have the power to create their own opportunity, if only they are given the chance. . . . There is so much wrong in Washington, I almost don't know where to start."
Mr. Bielat holds some views that this crowd would find uncongenial. For one, he favors raising the "cap" on wages subject to the Social Security payroll taxa glaring exception to his opposition to tax hikes. Another comes up during the tea party event, when a portly man with a white beard asks him: "Will you introduce legislation creating term limits in the federal government?"

"Sean worked his way through college and graduate school, aided by scholarships and the GI Bill.
To be added or removed from the
"The Wall Street Journal" Ping List,
Do you think this man can do a good job of overseeing Freddie and Fannie that Barney Frank couldn’t?
Yeah, Sean is too highly-educated for that pittance of responsibiity.
IF he shows up to the hearings and doesn’t mumble and talks coherently...he’s way ahead of bwanhney
But, but, he went to Harvard, and he’s not one of us.
“...that people no longer believe that the government has the answers for our betterment,...”
The red-blooded Americans never did.
A poll taken in 1960, I believe it was, said that 80 percent of the American people had absolute confidence in “the federal government,” which is constitutionally a misnomer.
Best wishes for Sean!
Lets hope that he knocks that POS Frank out. Go Sean go!
IMO, it is all in play. Pick your candidates for the final push.
(I was gonna say get behind your candidates but changed it. LOL)
If he keeps his teeth in, he's way ahead of the Frankenstein.
I like how Barney claimed on Fox & Friends the other day that he was the “LEADER” against home ownership for the poor & that he always thought they should just rent.
Poll by whom?? Paid for by?? Wouldn’t believe them then, sure as hell wouldn’t believe them now.
Yep the 2nd clip is the one (at the very end) - too funny!
I had to look for the video after you mentioned it. :-)
That means a "safe" Democrat will have had to win election in 2008 with that kind of margin.
Remember in November.
And that was with bigtime help from Obama/Biden. Read on.
Ohaha was heavly invested in the NJ gubernatorial race---one of only two statewide 2009 races w/ VA.
OBAMA WAS DESPERATE FOR NJ DEM CORZINE TO WIN W/ ILLEGAL VOTES--- Obama put the power of the WH machine behind incumbent Corzine.
The NY Times reported :
(a) every TV ad Corzine put on the air was being screened by Obama's WH team.
(b) Corzine's aides gave the WH daily briefings.
(c) Obamas pollsters took over for Corzines polling team, and,
(d) White House operatives were on the ground for internal strategy sessions,
Vote-starved Democrats rigged the election with latino votes (so they thought)
(e) White House operatives were orchestrating obscure pep rallies with Latinos (kept secret from voters),
(f) Corzine had a "Peruvian Pac" endorsing him.
(g) Ohaha campaigned in the state three times, Biden was there twice. Ohaha TV ads ran relentlessly.
(h) Corzine promised to give illegals driving credentials & in-state tuition.
(i) Corzine sucked up to illegal immigrants and REFUSED to enforce current immigration laws
(j)Corzine formed a Blue Ribbon committee of hypenates using tax dollars to mine votes for Corzine.
(k)Also sucking up to illegals was Sen Robert Menendez, a Corzine campaigner.

NEW JERSEY IS IDENTITY FRAUD CENTRAL FOR LATINOS
Two Texans busted in bogus ID operation in NJ
NORTH BERGEN, NJ -- July 21, 2006 -- Pelcastre brothers, Angel and Jorge, Dallas, Texas, were a walking threat to US national security, expert document forgers who, for a few thousand dollars, could give anyone a new identity, authorities said. The Texas brothers turned a NJ hotel room into a business office and were readying a massive cache of fake Social Security cards for delivery to a local NJ identity broker.
The Texas brothers were a "one-stop shop" for a myriad of fake US documents, including birth certificates, Social Security cards, driver's licenses for any state in the US, passports and resident alien cards, said state police. Officers happened upon two cars bearing Texas plates in a NJ hotel parking lot. Authorities wouldn't identify the NJ hotel by name for fear it would spark retribution. The Drug Interdiction Task Force, regularly runs checks.
The Texas brothers were followed to a NJ office supply store nearby where they purchased computer supplies. Officers then followed the Texans to a NJ storage facility in Secaucus, NJ, where the Texans loaded several boxes into a car. One of them stood lookout. Authorities approached the Texas brothers when they returned to the NJ hotel and questioned them separately. The Texas brothers consented to a search.
Police recovered laminating sheets with built-in security features, pages of blank documents waiting for fake names and information, finished documents, computers and software to create the fake IDs.
All told, the haul was worth about $500,000 on the street. Police also recovered $6,000 in cash, which was the first payment from a NJ fake document broker for a shipment of 500 Social Security cards.
AND THIS The winning Republican Lt Governor candidate, former County Sheriff Kim Guadagno, had applied for the federal 287(g) program, which sought to question every inmate coming to the County jail about his/her immigration status, regardless of the offense. Then-Sheriff Guadagno said she wanted to ensure that "illegal criminals" were not unduly released for fear of further harm to the community. The 287(g) program would provide the Sheriff with personnel and tools to punish individuals being held at the County jail (even if they do not meet the criteria set forth by Corzine's sucking up to illegals).
Illegals lacerated Sheriff Guadagno for political pandering and for scouting incidents of indictable offenses such as driving under the influence by undocumented immigrants.
She won state office, anyway.
Ohaha also campaigned for the VA Dem---the Repub won there, as well.
