Energized Brown Mocks Desperate Dems

Hillary Chabot January 17, 2010

GOP upstart state Sen. Scott Brown took aim at Democratic opponent Attorney General Martha Coakley’s presidential bailout this afternoon, telling a packed hall of rowdy supporters he would stay connected to them and not embrace Washington, D.C. insiders.

“They put in a distress call to Washington, and the next thing you know, Air Force One is landing at Logan,” Brown said of President Obama’s Boston visit today. “The party bosses gave the president some bad information. This Senate seat belongs to no one person and no one political party, it belongs to the people of Massachusetts.”

Brown, bolstered by a last-minute campaign surge in the polls, reminded the crowd of over 2,000 people that he is their candidate. “I’m Scott Brown, I’m from Wrentham, I drive a truck and I’m asking for your vote,” he said. Then he referenced Obama’s come-from-behind presidential campaign. “After all, who ever heard of a guy from Wrentham getting elected to the U.S. Senate? But as the president might remember, upsets like that have been known to happen.”

Brown was serenaded by his daughter, former “American Idol” semi-finalist Ayla Brown, backslapped by Red Sox [team stats] ace pitcher Curt Schilling [stats], and pumped up by former “Cheers” know-it-all John Ratzenberger during the electric rally.

“This to me feels like the clubhouse on the morning of Game Seven,” said Schilling. “We know we’re going to win, but we have to play the game anyway . . . Rarely do we feel like we get a chance to make a difference. This is one of those times and we cannot miss this opportunity.”

Supporters inside the rally came from across the state and even the country. Evan Hecht, 62, took a late-night plane from Walla Walla, Wash.,...

C-SPAN repeated a show with two political strategists (Kevin Madden for the Republican side and a woman from NY for the Democratic side). The Democrat was trying to put a brave face on the situation, talking about how many campaign workers they had calling people, etc. I don’t think she had convinced herself that Coakley could still win.

...nope not in Mass, early reports stated he was attending a rally at a hall that held 2000 people...then as day progressed reports said “light” “sparse” “1000”....
Check with early “news” stories at Google previous to his arrival for capacity......then later estimates of actual attendence...*grins*, ..numbers always go down.

Wonder of wonders, miracle of miracles! I just got off the phone with my 88 year-old father; a died in the wool, life-long democrat who was born in and has lived in Mass for over 70 years. HE HAS NEVER VOTED FOR A REPUBLICAN… NEVER. After polite chit chat about the NFL play off games I dared broach the subject and asked him if he was going to vote on Tuesday (every time “politics” have come up in the past he has berated me with tirades about those “evil republicans”). Well, he came right out and told me… “I AM going to vote on Tuesday and I am seriously thinking of voting for Scott Brown.” Needless to say I was and am totally ASTONISHED… ASTONISHED (I did not let him know in the least and kept my heart-felt joy and enthusiasm at his answer to my self so as to not “scare him off”)!

I tactfully asked him WHY he was going to vote for Brown and his answer was: “Because of the healthcare bill Obama is trying to pass.” I carefully agreed with him and reinforced the fact that Obama wants to gut Medicare/Medicaid by taking away 500 BILLION DOLLARS from the system and that if he adds 40 million people to the rolls, especially illegal aliens the health care system would collapse… I told him that Brown is an honorable man and that he is totally opposed to the “healthcare” bill and would vote against it… MY DAD AGREED! I was flabbergasted!

If my own father; a life-long Massachusetts FDR Democrat who has voted for EVERY Kennedy, Kerry/democrat to ever come down the pike, is going to vote for Scott Brown, a REPUBLICAN, BECAUSE OF HIS OPPOSITION TO Obama and his evil healthcare debacle then things are looking VERY promising for Scott Brown and we could all be in for an incredible victory on Tuesday. To this end I am fervently praying.

Obama who is so good at blaming and spinning has a chance to change directions and use this election to bury health care. He has the MSM and the left hates the bill as much as the right (for opposite reasons)>
However Obama is an arrogant, self centered, narcisstic amoral man who would rather take the entire country down with him rather than swallow his pride.

Your analysis is 100% correct.

Three more long years of this lunatic.
