Id like to address a question to all the people I hear from who tell me how bad U.S. Sen. Scott Brown is, how hes a turncoat, sellout, backstabbing, snake-in-the-grass Republican in Name Only (RINO).
My question is, if Scott Brown is so damn liberal, how come the Democrats already are spending millions upon millions of dollars to knock him out of the Senate next year?
Granted, I dont think there are that many of these Brown haters out there, but they are way overrepresented in the universe of talk-show radio callers. When the first words out of their mouths are Dodd-Frank, you know youve got another hot one on your hands.
OK, Brown voted for Dodd-Frank. Are you telling me you never made a mistake?
You say he votes with the Democrats all the time? I beg your pardon. You can look it up hes voted with the GOP leadership 75 percent of the time. By contrast, John Forbes Kerry has voted with the Democrat leadership 97 percent of the time.
Lets go down the list.
Brown voted against Harvard moonbat Elena Kagan for the Supreme Court.
He voted against Berkeley moonbat Gordon Liu, who makes Elena Kagan look like Anthony Kennedy, for the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
He voted to repeal Obamacare.
He opposed the DREAM Act, another handout for illegal aliens.
He opposed cap-and-trade, which is, if possible, even more insane than Obamacare.
He voted against the second stimulus a thinly disguised payoff to the public-sector pinky ring thug unions.
He slammed Harvard for keeping ROTC off campus while rewarding illegal aliens who engage in identity theft.
All you Brown haters, have you forgotten the unique circumstances of his election? Two years ago today, you could have gotten 10-1, and plenty of it, that Marsha Coakley would be the next senator. The turnout was a small fraction of what it will be in Novembers election, and despite Marshas historically abysmal campaign, he still only won 52-47.
Next year is going to be a tough fight. Would you prefer someone whos with you 75 percent of the time ... or 3 percent?
And now the moonbats have settled on one of their own. Professor Elizabeth Warren is just so ... perfect. Shes a carpetbagger, from Oklahoma. And she teaches at (prepare to swoon) Harvard Law School. Yes, the home of Obama, Kagan and Patrick. What could possibly go wrong?
You know that she bragged about providing the intellectual foundations to the filthy Occupy vermin who defecated on New York City police cars. More recently she said, I dont want to go to Washington to be a co-sponsor of some bland little bill nobody cares about.
Nobody except the person who asks you to write a letter to the U.S. Naval Academy on behalf of their son. Or who needs some help getting Social Security for their aunt.
This state already has one preening narcissist in the Senate. Do we really need another legend-in-her-own-mind limousine liberal?
I know, its early, but all you Brown haters, be careful what you wish for. Do you really want six years of buyers remorse?
Don't forget, according to your liberal "progressive" friends, Brown is a far right "Rethuglican" who wants to starve children, kill old people, lynch blacks, take away your rights... Six years of Dizzy Miss Lizzie instead...?
Howie Carr list ping. Howie is in Florida now, I think.
Just think, maybe a year from now Howie could have a different flagship station and could make a move to do his
show via ISDN line, live from the Sunshine State.
I heard the latest Joe Kennedy ad about Citgo and the “good people of Venezuela” and how they are different than the evil big U.S. oil companies. The clan must be proud.
one of the comments from Herald article:
>>She’s THE Obama/DNC choice from get-go. All outside lefty dough is hers along w/ the “independent” PACs running absurd dramatic ads v. Brown. If the Rs blow the presidential thingy, which they certainly are capable of, Congress is the only firewall between us & Obama’s unrelenting drive to turn the US into Greece w/o the good weather or olives. Brown’s good for Vets. I’m a vet. Works for me.
That ad is running all the time and uses the old Bill Withers tune “Lean on Me”, I think. He’s used the “good friends in Venezuela” line before. I change the station.
btw there’s talk R.I. could lose 1 of its 2 Congressional seats in the next decade (source: WPRO Providence). First they lose Patches Kennedy as a congressman, and now this!
Oh the humanity! :)
Then again, that's the Kennedys trademark.
how come the Democrats already are spending millions upon millions of dollars to knock him out of the Senate next year?They have to win back the Kennedy seat?
Please,please everybody,don’t give up on Scott Brown because you think he isn’t the perfect Republican or Conservative. Think about what an improvement he is over the late Ted Kennedy insofar as not supporting progressive liberal positions.
Brown is a rare quasi-semi-conservative in an otherwise pure moonbatly territory. If there are other, better possibilities there to push for, sure, push for them.
A similar soul searching moment is going to happen when/if the GOP nominates Mitt Romney for president. Herd of cats time.
Because he's a Republican.
Wait a minute. Is this a trick question?
What a steaming load of crap. Whenever the Democrats needed him, they knew they could count on him. But ooooh, he’s gonna force the Dems to spend money. Gosh, like they never spent money on Massachusetts Senate races when Kennedy was in office?
Scott Brown is the enemy. Period.
Poor Massachusetts. The California of the east coast. Except nobody lives there.
Ironically, I hear that Kennedy ad once a day, during the Hannity radio show. Go figure.
Gosh. If only we had more Scott Browns in The Senate.
For years the republican party has foisted go along get along types like Juan McLame, Bob Dull, and RINO ass clowns like Scott Brown. And our govt just keeps rediculously spending my money.
I will no longer hold my nose to support crappola.
Real conservatives or go fish.
People on here would rather have a Democrat who votes with Obama 100% of the time than have a Republican who votes conservative 75% of the time. Pretty impressive for MA. Hey, let’s just elect another liberal to the Kennedy seat. Isn’t that what the Swimmer would want?
Conservatives are stuck on stupid.
Right. Whoever votes Democrat is a friend of Obama.
Go to DU. They’d be happy to have you bolster their ranks.
Yes. When RINO stop trying to pick our candidates, I may consider ignoring them. For now, they have to go.
You’re absolutely right; like Chris Christie in NJ, Scott Brown has to be viewed in his environment. Both were elected in notoriously left-leaning states, and when one considers how far to the right they are of the PEOPLE THEY REPLACED, it can be viewed as little short of incredible.
Scott Brown didn’t lie to anybody; he campaigned as the 41st vote against ObamaCare, and that is what he is. He and Christie might not satisfy conservatives from “Middle America”, but to conservatives in their home states they are definitely steps in the right direction.
I don’t trust Brown’s instinct or judgment. But Elizabeth Warren is downright frightening.
Of course it is crap.
It is an article written by RomneyBOT Howie Carr
who lives for Mitt Romney and his toadies
such as Scott Brown.
Scott Brown does not deserve to be a Senator.
He is a proven liar to his supporters.
Now,now. Don’t use reason and logic to solve a problem, better wait for ObamAllah and the other Stalinist Democrats to regain complete and uncontested control of Congress and the White House to carry out their Five Year Plans.
/s if needed.
And you are a Paulist Moonbat and the Left's Best Weapon against the Republic!
Go take a Valium!
For the same reason Stalin had an ice pick stuck in the back of Trotsky's head.
Socialist tyrants hate competition. Even from other socialists.
Carr is an unprincipled dolt.
Idiots are the enemy. Don't be one.
You'd prefer more Ted Kennedys?
I don’t care about Scott Brown. He does not care about the Tea Party, either. So everybody’s happy.
Not true. he said on Howie’s show he would be an independent voice, would not always vote with party. Meanwhile the ad the Dems ran against him said “Who is Scott Brown, really? A Republican (said as if it were “Nazi”). Who will vote in lockstep with the Republican party.
They meant 100 per cent. OK, so he’s voted 75 per cent GOP.
Sometimes he votes Dem, but I would rather have someone who votes 75 per cent our way than 0 per cent our way. Sorry, I can’t picture Warren voting with the Republicans AT ALL.
Here is the deal: You have an opportunity to primary him.
Last time that happened, the other guy, Jack E. Robinson,
won 1 town out of 351. 1 town. And Brown has a huge warchest. If you think you can get a more conservative candidate than him, go for it. Good luck.
This is Mass. we’re talking about.
With Ben Nelson retiring there’s a chance the GOP could grab control of the Senate. You’re going to risk losing that chance by letting the moonbats back in?
The election comes down to Brown vs. Warren. If you stay home or vote third party, you are in effect voting for Warren.
You would be a conservative for Warren.
Put this URL in your bookmarks. In effect you are supporting her...
Better yet write in Barney Frank. Senator Barney Frank. Yes he decided not to run for his district after re-districting but we can’t have that Rethuglican Brown again. Don’t like
Brown? Vote Warren or Frank, Comrade.
A vote against Brown (or stay at home) supports moonbats. Do you want a quarterback that will give you a 13-3 record or a 0-16?
We have been here before - for forty years - before Reagan and before Newt's contract with America reform election. The Rinos hated that reform. Rinos are back in full control of the GOP and it is why the GOP have been a permanent minority party again. They don't care. They like being a minority wing of the Dem party. Like Dems, they like attacking and defeating conservative Republicans. They did it for forty years and hated Reagan and Newt for making the party a majority with a conservative reform agenda. They liked Obama winning the election, too.
When Rinos lose, it is the fault of Rinos, not conservatives. Scott Brown had no mathematical reason to to make a big show of stiff arming the Tea Party (i.e. Reagan Democrats who woke up to elect him) like he did. Rinos are a minority and don't win elections. Liberals vote for dems. Scott should have had a calculator. If he loses this election, it is by his own design.
>> And you are a Paulist Moonbat and the Left’s Best Weapon against the Republic! <<
But, alas, Massachusetts with all its vaunted educational institutions can't produce an electorate intelligent enough to get a Pat Toomey or Rand Paul elected to office.
Such is life.
So go ahead, find a Massachusetts equivalent of Christine O'Donnell and run her against Brown.
Let me know how that works out for ya.
It is not about what the backstabbing Romney toad, Brown,
said. It is about what he has DONE.
Scott Brown screwed every single conservative that
supported HIM, but whom he then
voted against OVER and OVER.
Only Howie Carr and Mitt Romney support him.
The RINO coward Romney:
"I bet you $10,000 that Howie Carr and the RINO Scott Brown
will support ME for this, even while YOU rot in jail.
