Stick to your guns, Scott
By Howie Carr | Sunday, September 30, 2012 | http://www.bostonherald.com | Columnists
Dont let up on the fake Indian, Scott.
Is she going to stop mentioning that youre a Republican? Of course not. So why would you choose to unilaterally disarm?
They want you to be gentler? Ask your friend John McCain how gentle worked out for him.
Since she began checking the box, Granny Warrens life is a testament to the truth of Sir Walter Scotts immortal line: Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive.
Shes always backpedaling, covering up her tracks, trying to explain away some hole in last weeks explanation that has since been rendered inoperative by a new inconvenient truth.
You neednt keep banging away on her fake-Indian problem. She keeps digging that hole deeper and deeper herself. This weeks TV spot about her parents so-called elopement shes throwing her own paternal grandparents under the bus as racists. Isnt family lore great?
One thing I would bring up again is the $750,000 paycheck she and her husband collect from Harvard Law. That really hit home in Jon Kellers debate. Everybody has high tuition bills to pay. People were talking about that revelation for days afterwards.
The no-interest $50,000 loan from Harvard also is worth revisiting. This is a woman who has led an incredibly privileged life, post-checking the box. For example, she and her daughter the second-generation moonbat who got the state to send out voter-registration forms to all welfare recipients, including illegal aliens wrote a book in 2005 entitled All Your Worth: The Ultimate Lifetime Money Plan.
Check out the Amazon reviews. Certain words recur: simplistic and fairytale. As one reader put it: I doubt the authors have any real experience in the real world.
I was surprised in the first debate that she didnt mention her baby, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. You should be ready for it, though, Scott. Just read the Wall Street Journal op-ed by a Texas congressman that ran Sept. 19.
A few highlights of the story: The CFPB budget is $447 million; about 60 percent of the 958 employees make over $100,000 a year; the directors secretary gets $165,139; they print documents in 187 languages ... this is Grannys greatest achievement, another out-of-control, do-nothing bureaucracy full of otherwise unemployable lawyers. And you can bet itll protect consumers just about as effectively as the SEC shielded investors from Bernie Madoff over the decades.
No need to ask her again to release her law school employment applications. She cant, obviously, or her campaign is over. So hit her on yet another of her stonewalls she wont give up the list of millionaires and billionaires shes been consulting for, even though shes required to report them all to Harvard Law School.
As The Wall Street Journal said yesterday, voters need to know who else shes been working for besides LTV Steel and Travelers Insurance so they can decide for themselves if shes really a handmaid to the plutocrats disguised as Robin Hood through November 6.
One last thing: If she brings up Sen. Jim Inhofe again, tell her if shes really worried about him she ought to think about running against him. In her home state of Oklahoma.

WSJ Jan 19, 2012:
A $447 Million Consumer Alert
Oklahoma’s #1 debater? Maybe not:
It ain't easy preserving Native American Culture in high places. Why should she be a member of the MA Bar? Was frickin' Squanto a member of the Bar? Just look at all he did for us white folk! OOPS. That's YOU white folks, since I have just discovered my Passamaquoddy roots. And no, you cynical bastards, it has nothing to do with my fair share of the $450 Million settlement.
Thanks for the ping!
Special Tue. column ping. (Radio news: Talk Radio Network has given the Savage slot, normally 6-9p ET nationally,
to Jerry Doyle. On WRKO Boston, they are now running Mark Levin 7-10 pm then Doyle though Doyle had a fill in last night (Doyle was already in that slot).
I didn’t catch the debate...figured I’d get highlights later. Can’t take Warren’s voice. It says something that I did tune in later to hear a bit of Todd Feinburg and
Michele McScreamer’s take on it. I could take McScreamer’s
voice, but not Warren’s. i.e., Warren’s is even worse to me.

Does Granny Warren really believe everything she said last night in Lowell?
I mean, this woman is a moonbats moonbat. She makes Obama look like a moderate.
Two weeks ago, she was wringing her hands about higher college tuitions. Last night she repeated (or Scott Brown did it for her) that shes for in-state tuition for illegal aliens which amounts to free tuition for people in the country illegally. But not for kids from New Hampshire whose parents pay income tax in Massachusetts.
She also supports drivers licenses for illegal aliens. Professor Warren, how about drivers licenses for drunken drivers? Why should one class of criminals be discriminated against in favor of another?
The debate took place on a warm October evening Elizabeth Warren summer.
Granted, Scott Brown still has the steeper hill to climb. Hes a Republican. Hes also an adult. This woman is untethered from the truth. So were her supporters in the Tsongas Center.
At the start when David Gregory mentioned the fake-Indian controversy, they softly hissed him. How dare he! Then she claimed she didnt lie for five weeks about not knowing that Harvard was touting her as a woman of color.
I answered it when I understood it, she said, with forked tongue. It took her five weeks to understand Hillary Chabots question?
Hey, maybe this is working for her. Perhaps the state is totally overrun with Kool-Aid drinkers who think the last four years have been great, and that if only we could borrow another $10 trillion from China and add another 15 million to the food stamp rolls....
Shes for Obamas jobs bill. Too bad she wasnt here in Boston during the 70s. Did she ever hear of the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA)? City Hall trained a lot of hacks, for careers in the hackerama. Most of them never worked again.
Her only ammunition is Browns votes on all these fake roll-calls. Whos her trainer, Chuck Schumer? She uses her talking points like a crutch millionaires and billionaires and subsidies for big oil.
Big oil made $137 billion in profits last year! And how much did Big Government make in taxes on Big Oil? She was so out of gas at the end that she used the word hammered again.
Brown at least has new material for every debate. My favorite was when she brought up the Buffett rule and he came back with, We already have a Buffett rule in this state. You can voluntarily pay higher state taxes. She chose not to.
Im sure he rehearsed this line too: Excuse me, Im not a student in your classroom.
Grannys the classic modern Democrat. She cant even name a Republican shed work with at least one wholl be there in January. To her, the only compromise is when Republicans surrender. She never saw a tax she didnt want to raise except her own.
Im from here, Scott Brown said to begin his closing statement.
Yes he is. And Granny is from ... Harvard.
She is one dangerous idiot that is for sure.

Its lights, camera... and drool all over Obama

The only place to watch tonights presidential debate is on C-SPAN.
You know what everyone on every network except Fox is going to say. Comrade Chris Matthews leg is going to be tingling out of control. Sgt. Ed Schultz and Rachel Maddow will be breathlessly reading phony stories from the Internet about dissension in the GOP ranks.
On CNN, Republicans Alex Castellanos and David Gergen will compare Baracks closing statement to the Gettysburg Address and the Sermon on the Mount. David Brooks will swoon as he notes the perfect crease in Obamas trousers.
All of these trust-funded parrots the pundits, the bow-tied bumkissers, the throne sniffers will agree that its all over and Mitt might as well throw in the towel.
Talk about marching in lockstep, to use a favorite word of both U.S. Sen. Scott Brown and Granny Warren on Monday night in Lowell.
But dont let the Democratic agitprop get you down. Just watch the debate on C-SPAN and then, as soon as its over, flip over to a radio talk show, or the Internet.
The courtiers on the alphabet networks are just trying to depress you. They want you to stay home on Nov. 6. This is always done in campaigns in World War II, the Axis had Tokyo Rose and Lord Haw-Haw spouting propaganda to the Allies over shortwave radio. Of course, the difference is, they were broadcasting from behind enemy lines.
Tonights Lord Haw-Haws will be trying to destroy morale from posh TV studios in New York and Washington. They ride around the East Side in limousines, make seven-figure salaries and summer on Nantucket. Theyre the one percent.
Some have speculated that the network touts might try to keep Mitt viable, to goose ratings and keep a semblance of a horse race going. That may have been true until recent times, but now, the watchdogs are lapdogs. They cant help themselves. They worship at Baracks feet.
How can it be that Mitt Romney putting his dog in a crate on the roof of his car is approximately 100 times as big a story as Barack Obama actually eating one in Indonesia?
But theres good news. For a lot of these obsequious, squirrely Uriah Heeps, this is the last go-around. Their newspapers and maybe networks arent going to exist in another four years. Re-electing Obama only will hasten the demise of the lame-streams.
Your average elite reporter is about as truthful as Granny Warren. Think fake but accurate, a famous headline about a hoax 60 Minutes fabricated for the Democrats in 2004.
Heres another example of fake news. On Jan. 10, 2010, the Sunday Globe ran a front-page story about Marsha Coakleys commanding lead in the Senate race with nine days to go.
Democrat Martha Coakley ... enjoys a solid, 15-percentage-point lead over Republican rival Scott Brown as the race for U.S. Senate enters the homestretch, according to a new Boston Globe poll of likely voters. ... Coakleys lead grows to 17 points 53 to 36 when undecideds leaning toward a candidate are included in the tally.
Nine days later, Scott Brown won, 53-47. Anyone know what channel C-SPAN is on in Brighton?
Not sure where you heard that but Howie IS on. And that’s great!
Playing a quote from Obama and pointing out it’s HIM not Romney that needs to be held accountable!
I dont get it. Obama has been over by the Hoover Dam and out west thorugh the entire week. I thought he was out there to get used to the higher altitude as well as do the prep.
I think this talk about how he didnt perform well because he was altitude sick is just bull. He was out there. What a pack of liars!
My commute home will be bearable.
Kenyans dominate the Boston Marathon because they train at high altitude. You would think Obama has a least one Kenyan gene.

The LSM needs to lie to prop up their man.
He just said the morning guy said Id be off today. Actually hes leaving at 6 to attend parents night at Wellesley High. THEN McScreamerwith him for the 5 to 6 hour, then McScreamer alone
Howie's show IS great today! As was Rush's before Howie's...
Enjoyed the three hour party with Rush today... the post-debate party continues with Howie! :-)
I heard it from Todd's own mouth yesterday morning, he said it more than once. However, he should have said that mcscreamer was filling in the last hour instead of making it sound like she was doing the whole show. Todd also said that mcscreamer wanted to do the morning show and Howie's show but cooksey wouldn't let her. Apparently she was all fired up over the debate the nite before.
ATTENTION ATTENTION ATTENTION - KUHNER FILLING IN FOR TODD AND MCSCREAMER ON MONDAY OCTOBER 8 - WOOOHOO - 5:30 TO 9 - HEARD IT RIGHT FROM THE HORSES’ MOUTH.........
Yeah, or maybe they changed their mind after he said it and asked Howie to come in to do 3-6 at least.
>>mcscreamer wanted to do the morning show and Howie’s show but cooksey wouldn’t let her.
cruel and unusual punishment for listeners, if it had been.
Fri column ping, below. First: a bit of news. There may be no more, or VERY FEW, sports pre-emptions on WRKO (I say that knowing that some will occasionally occur—maybe on weekends?) now that the switch has been pulled...namely, WEEI-FM 93.7 still has local talk and the C’s and Sox, but WEEI (AM) 850 is now
all ESPN. This also includes things like the MLB playoffs on 850.
In the past when there was a conflict you could have gotten
Sox or C’s pregame, etc. bounced to RKO but that may happen rarely if ever now. According to PD Jason Wolfe, the Red Sox have priority on WEEI-FM 93.7 and IF there’s a conflict with
a Celtics game, WEEI 850 will air the C’s. If the Celtics
are in the playoffs, the C’s would be on WEEI-FM and the
Sox on WEEI (AM).
In the past they would have put the Sox on WRKO with the C’s on both WEEI AM and FM, but apparently that won’t happen now. So little if any situations of Howie being prempted
on RKO for the VERY exciting Red Sox or Celtics game.
There still could be pre-emptions on WCRN 830, etc.
and for those in Vermont I believe the Yankees are still
on WVMT 620, so there could be pre-emptions there.
Confused? You won’t be after this next episode of
As the Radio Dial Turns...
Obamas free ride over
By Howie Carr | Friday, October 5, 2012 | http://www.bostonherald.com | Columnists

Is it time to bomb Libya?
If ever Barack Obama needed a Wag the Dog moment, this is it.
The mainstream media are still in a state of shock, disbelief. They feel worse than Seamus the dog did at the end of his roof-crate trip to Michigan.
Good luck getting a grief counselor this weekend. Theyre all over at MSNBC and Morrissey Boulevard.
Never bring a community organizer to a CEO fight.
Barack was Richard III on Bosworth Field, minus the hunchback: A teleprompter, a teleprompter, my kingdom for a teleprompter.
Weve all known that Barack Hussein Obama has had a free ride his entire life, but the guy is 51 years old. Did it never occur to him that perhaps at some point in his entitled life there would come a moment when he couldnt hide behind the skirts of his guilt-ridden trust-funded moonbat acolytes?
Sometimes, dear Barack, the fault is not in the alleged racism, but in ourselves.
Put it another way, you cant always vote present. Youre not in Springfield, Ill., anymore.
Where was the Obamaphone woman from Cleveland when he needed her?
Two of the best lines of the evening were tweeted by somebody going under the handle of @Iowahawkblog:
Breaking: Choom Gang revokes Obamas membership.
What the (expletive) is this? I was specifically told Id be debating John Kerry. Inside Obamas head
Clint Eastwood debated an empty chair. Mitt Romney debated an empty suit.
How about Al Gore blaming Baracks wretched performance on the altitude in Denver, the Mile High City? So did somebody order the president to take a three-day vacation in Las Vegas?
And wasnt he the one who three years ago advised Americans not to go to Vegas anymore?
If Michelles post-debate looks could kill, theyd still be scraping Baracks remains off the walls of that building at the University of Denver. Dinner last night at the White House was hot tongue and cold shoulder.
Nice touch by Mitt to compare Barack to his five sons, as in, youre acting like a child.
And he was. Even yesterday, back out on the campaign trail, Barack was telling his Obamaphone fans that Romney wasnt willing to be held accountable.
Barack apparently forgot that hes the president. Hes the one whos supposed to be held accountable.
But people like Barack dont expect to ever be held accountable. Truman said the buck stops here. Barack says the buck stops with you.
In his closing statement (if you can call that gibberish a statement), Barack said of American traditions, All those things are designed to make sure that ... everybodys getting a fair share.
Barack finally got his fair share last night. Better late than never.
