Did the reporter fall to the ground after running into the fence/barricade ? I don’t see or hear anything consistent an altercation.

My impression, as well. The obese staffer isn't seen doing anything other than limply raising his fat clown-fingered hand in a normal "This interview is over" gesture. The reporter sure doesn't sound distressed, as if he had just been pushed. What it does look and sound like is that the reporter put his camera down, perhaps bumping into a barrier, in order to speed walk to catch up to the bitch.

Forgive the pun, but who is pushing "the push" story?

I will look around ... meanwhile ...

http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2010/01/12/coakley-dodges-question-about-afghanistan-claim/

A reporter asked Coakley about that claim after a Capitol Hill fundraiser on Tuesday. “Do you stand by that remark?” he asked.

Coakely, standing before a small cluster of reporters and cameras, listened to the question, then quickly looked in a different direction.

“I’m sorry,” she said. “Did anybody else have a question?”

The Democrat responded to another reporter who asked why she made the last-minute fundraising trip to Washington.

Coakley said she was in the middle of “a very intense campaign.”

“We are facing a candidate from Massachusetts who is being supportive by extreme right groups including many Republican groups who are pouring money into Massachusetts attacking my record and distorting my record,” Coakley said. “I’m doing everything that I need to be competitive in this race.”

Coakley in trouble? Pharma and HMO lobbyists to the rescue
By: Timothy P. Carney
Examiner Columnist
01/09/10 1:55 PM EST

With Democrat Martha Coakley in trouble in the Massachusetts special election to fill Ted Kennedy’s seat, Democrats could lose vote No. 60 for President Obama’s health-care bill. In response, an army of lobbyists for drug companies, health insurance companies, and hospitals has teamed up to throw a high-dollar Capitol Hill fundraiser for Coakley next Tuesday night. The invitation is here.

Of the 22 names on the host committee—meaning they raised $10,000 or more for Coakley—17 are federally registered lobbyists, 15 of whom have health-care clients. Of the other five hosts, one is married to a lobbyist, one was a lobbyist in Pennsylvania, another is a lawyer at a lobbying firm, and another is a corporate CEO. Oh, and of course, there’s also the political action commitee for Boston Scientific Corporation.

All the leading drug companies have lobbyists on Coakley’s host committee: Pfizer, Merck, Amgen, Sanofi-Aventis, Eli Lilly, Novartis, Astra-Zeneca, and more. On the insurance side of things, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Cigna, Humana, HealthSouth, and United Health all are represented on the host committee.

it looks more like an accident

Didn't you watch the rest? The guy continued to push him toward the camera (away from coakley) and then tried to prevent the guy from following her. Looks like the guy was trying to take a picture. He finally escaped.

SEIU bodyguard goon?

Look at the second vid, post #18. Clearly her guy was harassing the guy who “fell” after he got back up. Not an accident at all.

There's an important lesson here, folks.

As we conduct "operations" at Rallies, Town Hall meetings and Debates this year, always have several buddies to back you up with video cameras and lots of battery & record time!

Going one step further and sticking a long-play, high quality digital recorder in your jeans pocket can help you catch words the Liberal thugs say after they see the red light on your video camera go out. It might come in VERY handy afterward.

Maggie, how about a thread in breaking news with all this information...Folks are fed up with lobbiest....I can’t imagine that Mass. would be any different.

Greta mentioned it but didn’t give the details you’ve posted.

With the pushing around of the reporter by her goons and this “fund raiser” from the lobbiest it should do her in. Brown won’t go negative so it’s up to us to get the word out....Rush, Dredge should be posting material soon, if not we need to get them on board. FOX already has the lobby info, need to send them the video.

Jesse Waters from Fox was at the fundraising event and managed to interview Martha.

Meltdown! This is not a good sign for the Coakley campaign. Things like this snowball until the entire campaign starts to feel like a desperate effort to hold off the inevitable.

When they're that desperate, they cheat to win. Watch for reportage on mysterious "computer problems" or problems with the voting machines on election night.

Yeah Ernie! I'm out of the pit as of 8PM. What a day. Did not get hardly any assignments done, due to being alone for many hours and having the folks swarm in asking me to re-wire their house and worse.
I would not vote for her because she is a frigen democratic stooge. If Brown wins...... it is going to shake up the very foundations of the commie adherents now controlling our country. To think the whale would be replaced by any Republican Senator.

There’s another youtube video at the same site: Coakley’s Foreign Policy Experience. Know what it is? Her sister lives overseas. This is a campaign ad for Brown, and it concludes: “Trouble in Iraq? A nuclear Iran? Problems with North Korea? CALL YOUR SISTER!” LOL!
