Elizabeth Warren Supports Small Businesses | MetroWestDaily

Elizabeth Warren Supports Small Businesses | MetroWestDaily | Massachusetts Senate Race 2012 | Scoop.it

During my career I have worked for and with large multi-national companies as well small entrepreneurial and family businesses around the world. The needs of these different entities are dramatically different.

 

The current Massachusetts Senatorial campaign has two candidates whose views could not be further apart about how to help small businesses succeed. Senator Brown’s claims in the first debate versus the truth, and what he voted and lobbied for should match. Unfortunately, much of it didn’t.

Is Mass. Liberal Enough To Vote For Warren? | WBUR audio:

Is Mass. Liberal Enough To Vote For Warren? | WBUR audio: | Massachusetts Senate Race 2012 | Scoop.it

Get this: Progressive Massachusetts — the lone state that tilted for dove George McGovern in 1972 and has legalized same-sex marriage — has never once elected a woman to the U.S. Senate. Or to the Corner Office on Beacon Hill.

 

Getting women more involved in high-level politics has been a refrain for decades nationally. But Massachusetts stands out as a relatively strong male bastion, especially in New England.

 

Just across the border, New Hampshire is currently served by two women U.S. senators. Maine has two, too. Connecticut — in many ways the most similar New England state to Massachusetts — has elected multiple women governors.

 

But not Massachusetts.

"You're the deciding vote" By President Bill Clinton | EW4Senate | Massachusetts Senate Race 2012 | Scoop.it
Most people don't think of Massachusetts as a swing state. But electing a Democrat at the top of the ticket isn't enough. This year, Massachusetts will cast the deciding vote for the party that will control the United States Senate.

 

We need a strong Democratic majority in the United States Senate to keep moving our country forward -- and that's why we need to do everything we can to elect Elizabeth Warren on November 6th.

U.S. Sen. Scott Brown’s decision to skip a candidates forum at Roxbury Community College last week may well have been in his best interest.

 

That was no clearer than when challenger Elizabeth Warren received a standing ovation from the audience that gathered in the Media Arts Center at Roxbury Community College. And that was before she even sat down.

Really, Sen. Brown? Toma-hawk chops? War yells? | Bay State Banner

Really, Sen. Brown? Toma-hawk chops? War yells? | Bay State Banner | Massachusetts Senate Race 2012 | Scoop.it

The behavior of Brown’s staff, captured on cringe-inducing video, is deeply ignorant and the unsurprising result of Brown’s own deeply ignorant, race-baiting comments.

 

What they did — and his indulgent response to it — falls well beneath the dignity of his office and reveals a blithe willingness to insult an entire race of people in order to mock just one person. Those Native Americans who initially accepted his accusations as well-intended and sincere must now watch in sadness and anger as his staff mimics ceremonial chants and the despised “tomahawk chop.”

 

My maternal grandmother, who died when I was very young, was a beautiful full Cherokee Native American.

Letter: Scott Brown's tactics betray Karl Rove's influence | SouthCoastToday

Letter: Scott Brown's tactics betray Karl Rove's influence | SouthCoastToday | Massachusetts Senate Race 2012 | Scoop.it

Scott Brown's actions and campaign have sunk to a new low, tarnishing the nice guy image he has fashioned for the voters of Massachusetts when a pack of his supporters trashed Elizabeth Warren's rally in Dorchester with Indian war whoops and tomahawk chops in the presence of at least two of his top campaign operatives.

 

This not only insulted Native Americans, but spoke to Brown's complicity in this offensive stunt. Although Brown denies he knew of this outrageous example of dirty politics, one wonders if he cut class in law school when they discussed circumstantial evidence. His denials ring hollow and show his character as a flawed disciple of Karl Rove's style of slash and destroy.

 

Scott Brown's campaign manager Jim Barnett worked for Karl Rove 2000-2001.

Elizabeth Warren leads Sen. Scott Brown, 48 percent to 44 percent among likely voters, in a private Massachusetts Senate poll of likely voters conducted for a Boston-based consulting and research firm. Her advantage is within the survey's margin of error. The same poll showed Brown leading Warren by 10 percentage points in January and by 14 in April.

 

A WBUR/MassInc poll released Monday pegged the race at 49 percent for Warren and 45 percent for Brown.
