'Bipartisan' Boaster Scott Brown Runs Against The President

'Bipartisan' Boaster Scott Brown Runs Against The President | Massachusetts Senate Race 2012 | Scoop.it

Republican Scott Brown likes to tout himself as bipartisan but in an out-of-state fundraising email he calls his race for re-election "THE battleground for the United States Senate" and "the only sure hedge to a potential second term for President Obama"

 

Bipartisan? No! And his voting bears that out. On key votes, he joined Republicans to block bill 76% of the time.

Letter: Seeing red over Sen. Brown | Gloucester Times

Letter: Seeing red over Sen. Brown | Gloucester Times | Massachusetts Senate Race 2012 | Scoop.it

Must we have racism plus more lies mixed in our Senate race? Have you seen the video about the protestors at Elizabeth Warren’s rally? It features Scott Brown’s senior staffers — such as Brad Garrett, who works for the Massachusetts Republican Party, and Jack Richard, a constituent services lawyer in Brown’s US Senate office, plus Greg Casey, Brown’s deputy chief of staff, and Jerry McDermott, a former Boston city councilor who serves as Brown’s state director — jumping up and down like idiots, insulting Indians.

Senator Scott Brown’s Racist And Anti-Indian Campaign Rallies | Massachusetts Senate Race 2012 | Scoop.it
No, the real offense is Brown excusing racism and attempting to deflect from the hate speech being conducted at his rally. The behavior there was bigoted, and his attempts to excuse it are likewise bigoted.

Globe Poll Items

Globe Poll Items | Massachusetts Senate Race 2012 | Scoop.it

With Elizabeth Warren and Senator Scott Brown preparing for their second debate Monday night, Warren appears to be inching ahead in the highly competitive race for Senate, as Massachusetts Democrats energized by the presidential race begin to fall in line behind her, according to a new Globe poll.

 

Warren, a Democrat, leads Brown, a Republican, 43 percent to 38 percent, a shift from the Globe’s last poll in May, when Brown held a 2-point lead. But the race remains within either candidate’s grasp, with 18 percent of voters still undecided, said Andrew E. Smith, the Globe’s pollster and the director of the University of New Hampshire ­Survey Center.

In Massachusetts, Scott Brown's red racism now an issue

In Massachusetts, Scott Brown's red racism now an issue | Massachusetts Senate Race 2012 | Scoop.it
Finally, Brown’s injection of race into this race is as obvious, blatant, and mean-spirited as anything I’ve seen come out of Mississippi or Louisiana over the last 50 years. He is telling the “low information” white voter in Massachusetts that Warren has not only used the dreaded “affirmative action” card to get into Harvard and other plum normally white-reserved stations in life. But she has used it “illegally” because she really is not red, she’s white. Just look at her.

Scott Brown Won't Reveal Clients While Demanding Warren's

Scott Brown Won't Reveal Clients While Demanding Warren's | Massachusetts Senate Race 2012 | Scoop.it

In a bid to draw attention away from the negative coverage of his supporters doing tomahawk chops, Scott Brown demanded that Elizabeth Warren reveal her previous law clients. To push her along, he declared some of his own, but has stopped short of revealing them all.

 

"I am a real estate attorney. I have a very small practice," Sen. Brown, (R-Mass.) told reporters Thursday afternoon. "The last seven or eight, nine years, it was run out of my home, and the clients that I represent are small banks, cooperative banks and a couple mortgage companies, focusing as one of their attorneys on real estate. I go to people’s houses, I do real estate closings, and as a title agent: Fidelity National and First American. So those banks are Wrentham Cooperative Bank, Hyde Park Cooperative Bank, Middlesex Savings Bank, and a couple of smaller mortgage companies -– some of them are no longer in business."
