That woman just has an evil look about her.
Coakley: “...votes are quoted...”. Votes are quoted?
One and the same.
Maggie, can you get the list of donators (lobbiest) that attended the Coakley fund raiser held in DC this eveneing. Twenty names over half are lobbiests)
It’s another thing that needs to go viral NOW!
Now it makes sense. THANKS!
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 ...
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.”
Arrogant isn’t she?
Oops, I stand corrected! There is bolshie douchebaggery on film. That first youtube video was useless. Yours is the one people need to be view and spread.
Coakley in trouble? Pharma and HMO lobbyists to the rescue

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.
Here are some of Coakley fundraiser hosts with some of their current health care clients:
* Thomas Boggs, Patton Boggs: Bristol-Myers Squibb
* Chuck Brain, Capitol Hill Strategies: Amgen, BIO, Merck, PhRMA
* Susan Brophy, Glover Park Group: Blue Cross, Pfizer
* Steven Champlin, Duberstein Group: AHIP, Novartis, Sanofi-Aventis
* Licy Do Canto, Raben Group: Amgen
* Gerald Cassidy, Cassidy & Associates: U. Mass Memorial Health Care
* David Castagnetti, Mehlman, Vogel, Castagnetti: Abbot Labs, AHIP, Astra-Zenaca, General Electric, Humana, Merck, PhRMA.
* Steven Elmendorf, Elmendorf Strategies: Medicines Company, PhRMA, United Health
* Shannon Finley, Capitol Counsel: Amgen, Astra-Zeneca, Blue Cross, GE, PhRMA, Sanofi-Aventis.
* Heather Podesta, Heather Podesta & Partners: Cigna, Eli Lilly, HealthSouth
* Tony Podesta, Podesta Group: Amgen, GE, Merck, Novartis.
* Robert Raben, Raben Group: Amgen, GE.
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.
Same here, I have no idea what happened. Didn’t see anyone pushing or shoving a reporter.
|Much better - and more alarming vid here
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.
See my follow-up posts-—I now agree that the goon was running interference for the Rat.
“Here are some of Coakley fundraiser hosts with some of their current health care clients:...”
All Brown needs to do is get this list out into the deepest Democratic strongholds......
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.
I guess this thuggery happened afterward.
That is awesome. Right out of the Sopranos. That footage, along with some violin music, needs to be in an independent ad immediately. It could take up news cycles into the weekend.
Can you move this thread to breaking news noting the DC invitation and lobbyists referenced in posts 60, 64, 65?
Votes are quoted.......
-—sounds like the good ACORN “contractor” thing to do, to give “quotes” on how much it will cost the Dems to steal votes, piecemeal,how much for “each vote”.....like me giving an estimate , as a building contractor.
I wouldn’t vote for her just based on that hard look.
I agree. The video here shows the thuggery much clearer. They should change the first video.
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.
I hope this is all over the Boston papers tomorrow.
I’m stuck here.
that man should file assault charges against the attacker who stopped him.
You betcha. Let’s get er done! Get the word out. Anyone got local email addresses to local media....I’ve got a long list of national but it’s a bit out of date.
Gergen had to admit to the NR today that Brown “stuffed me with that answer”.
SEIU goons placed a $685K ad buy for Coakley today.
vicious leftist thugs strike again!
They don’t tend to care much about fighting our real enemies -— it’s more convenient to fight domestic political rivals as viciously as possible......
Your correct .....we do the same at all events. Lots of audio and video packed inside and outside and parking areas etc as well as to and from........

I agree. That video was so confusing after they started running that all one could make out was shaky lights. The sound of a railing falling over does not constitute proof of an assault.

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!
