Following on his nasty, snide and snarling performance at the debate last week with Elizabeth Warren, Scott Brown, according to Politico, has determined to take the gloves off and "shed his Mr. Nice Guy image" . LOL. As if he ever really merited such an image.
The fresh approaches are indicative of a shift of the contours of the campaign in Warren’s favor, as Democrats begin to come home to support the first-time candidate in a blue state primed to deliver a massive margin of victory to President Barack Obama.Following on the Menino endorsement, the Warren campaign is really on a roll. And, an important campaign rallyin point has been pointing out that a vote for Scott Brown is a vote to put Jim Imhoffe in charge of the EPA. But, lest you think that Brown is bereft of Boston support, former Democratic Mayor Ray Flynn, campaigning with Brown, expressed his disdain for the intelligence and sophistication of Massachussets voters, saying:
Since giving a prime time speech at the Democratic National Convention more than two weeks ago, the former Harvard professor has seized on the party energy ginned up in Charlotte. Boston Mayor Tom Menino’s wholehearted endorsement of her at a lively rally before several hundred supporters Friday afternoon added an exclamation point to that unity.
Warren’s debate performance Thursday night was roundly praised and marked a turn toward a sunnier manner that has helped quell complaints about her proclivity for preachiness.
it was a mistake for Warren to believe she could defeat Brown on the basis of Senate control. That narrative is too process-heavy and distant from the concerns of working-class voters, , the (Fake) Democrat said.So, Mayor Flynn, you think that electing a guy who will do the bidding not of Massacussets voters, but of the Boston financial institutions is "what's good for their family"? Or, is it simply that you want Jeff Sessions to be Chair of the Judiciary Committee so he can block any Obama judicial nominees who don't swear to bury Roe v. Wade?
“People make determinations on the basis of character. Take my word for it. I’ve been in politics 50 years,” Flynn said. “If I ever came down here and started telling people about ‘Big Oil’, they’d say, Jesus, Ray Flynn is getting a little old. They want to know what’s good for their kids, what’s good for their family.”
Flynn is just so predictable.
In any case, the idea that Scott Brown had a "Mr. Nice Guy" image remaining (if it ever existed) after that pitiful debate performance is laughable. Perhaps, we can look forward to a Rick Lazio moment from Scott at the next debate.
