    Elizabeth Warren Ad: Let's Be More Like China Michael Warren August 1, 2012 8:00 AM Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren has a new ad running on Massachusetts television praising the Chinese government's investment in public works projects. The ad encourages the United States to follow the lead of the Asian Communist country and "do better." Watch the ad below, courtesy of the New York Sun: "We've got bridges and roads in need of repair and thousands of people in need of work. Why aren’t we rebuilding America?” Warren says in the 30-second ad. “Our competitors are putting people to work,...

    U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts will speak in a headlining role at the Democratic National Convention, the Obama campaign said Monday. A rising star in the Democratic Party, Warren will speak in primetime just before former President Bill Clinton, who will enter President Obama’s name into the nomination. Of the prime speaking slot, Warren said, "It will be an honor to share the convention stage with President Clinton on Wednesday, and to talk about what is happening to America's families."

    Despite her national popularity among Democrats and an online petition with 1,247 signatures calling for her to deliver the keynote address at the Democratic National Convention, Elizabeth Warren will not be headlining the gathering in Charlotte, N.C. Instead, the Harvard Law professor will speak ahead of former President Bill Clinton who will officially nominate President Barack Obama for a second term in office on Sept. 5 at the Time Warner Cable Arena. “Elizabeth Warren has championed the protection of the middle class throughout her life,” said 2012 Democratic National Convention Chair Antonio Villaraigosa in a statement. “At President Obama’s side,...

    Well, according to the Boston Globe, that's the latest rumor. The crowds at political conventions feast on partisan red meat, and they could end up with a bellyful when the Republicans and Democrats meet back to back beginning late next month. An Obama campaign official confirmed to the Globe Wednesday that US Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren is ­being considered as a possible keynote speaker for the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C. It would give the Massachusetts Democrat a national platform for her high-profile race against Senator Scott Brown, the same launch pad that ­Barack Obama used to vault ­into...
  • In online chat, Brown is brought into Chick-fil-A fray

    Senator Scott Brown, who has earned kind words from Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino despite their differing political parties, treaded carefully Friday when asked during a chat about the mayor’s spat with Chick-fil-A over its opposition to gay marriage. “I disagree with what the CEO from Chick-fil-A said. I was glad he spoke further and said that his company does not discriminate,” Brown wrote from his South Boston campaign headquarters. Noting that Massachusetts has strong antidiscrimination laws that could prevent problems should the company decide to set up shop in Boston, Brown added, “If they move forward with the...

    The Weekly Standard ^ | 7/24/2012 | DANIEL HALPER
    Republican operatives in Washington are praising Scott Brown's latest campaign ad. The ad, a contrast spot being run by the Republican Massachusetts senator, shows that Brown's Democratic opponent, Elizabeth Warren, is to the left on economic issues of John F. Kennedy, Bill Clinton, Lyndon B. Johnson, Gerald Ford, and Ronald Reagan. Instead of being in the mainstream, Warren, along with President Barack Obama, is shown to be an opponent of free enterprise. The ad is called, "Let America Be America Again." "Devastating," says one Republican operative. "Long--but does a really good job of showing how radical the Obama/Warren view of...

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    In an unintentionally hilarious variation on the some-of-my-best-friends-are line employed by people defending themselves against accusations of prejudice, Elizabeth Warren—lefty Dem candidate for Senate from Massachusetts—has claimed that various people close to her have started small businesses. Warren let loose her laugh line on Al Sharpton's MSNBC show this evening, responding to an ad Sen. Scott Brown is running that reveals how President Obama's "you didn't build that" line was eerily similar to an earlier Warren utterance. View the video here.

    On Monday, Florida Senator Marco Rubio blasted out an email to supporters on behalf of the Reclaim America Pac endorsing Scott Brown and explaining, in no uncertain terms, the myriad reasons why Bay State voters should not elect Elizabeth Warren to the United States Senate in November: Two years ago, I endorsed Scott Brown because I knew he would be a critical vote against expanded government, out-of-control spending, and the President's healthcare takeover. Now Scott Brown is running for reelection against an ultra-liberal backed by extreme big-government special interests. … Scott's opponent is Elizabeth Warren, an extreme liberal who was...

    We all remember the euphoria when Scott Brown won the special election to the so-called Ted Kennedy seat in 2010. He was supposed to be the 41st vote against cloture on Obamacare. And we all know how that turned out. Despite the clear voice of the people, the president pulled out every trick imaginable to force that bill down our throats. That does not diminish Scott Brown's victory. But the truth is that because his original election was a special election, he had media attention and voter support from all over the country. Now we are approaching an important general...

    Court decisions result in elections that have consequences. Who is going to pay a high price in November for last Thursday’s U.S. Supreme court’s ruling? Here in Massachusetts, it wasn’t a good day for Liz Warren’s ailing campaign. Not only does the decision re-energize Republicans and Tea Party patriots to rally around Sen. Scott Brown, but it also undercuts attempts of the millionaire house flipper to relate to the middle class. According to the Congressional Budget Office, “75 percent of individual mandate penalties will fall on those making less than $250,000.” That makes her endorsement of Obamacare and its 21...

    Friend, Three months ago, we announced some pretty incredible 1st quarter fundraising numbers. So Scott Brown changed his game plan. For months now, Scott Brown and his supporters have done anything and everything to tear down this campaign and avoid the real issues facing the people of Massachusetts. Massachusetts voters are smart -- and they've seen past the spin. A new PPP poll out today shows the race is still tied, 46-46. But we've got one more hurdle this week, and it's a big one. Saturday night is our next important fundraising deadline -- and we need to prove that...

    Elizabeth Warren for President? Democrats' Barren 2016 BenchBy Molly Ball, The Atlantic | National Journal – 5 hrs ago Regardless of whether the president wins re-election, the Obama era will be over before long. Democrats will have to find a new leader on whom to pin their hopes. But who? I went to a conference of liberal activists this week hoping to find out whom the party's activist base sees as its up-and-coming stars. But the exercise turned out to be revealing largely for how unprepared people were to answer the question. Nearly every answer I got began with a...

Kennedy Institute with Elizabeth Warren, but with two conditions attached, his campaign announced this afternoon. First, the Brown camp wants Vicki Kennedy to pledge neutrality in the race and not endorse either Brown or Warren. Second, Brown wants only local media to sponsor the event, not MSNBC, but Brown has approved Tom Brokaw as moderator.
