Elizabeth Warren’s Occupiers to attack Tampa’s EMS during GOP convention?
“EMS” standing for “Emergency Medical Services,” of course. Anyway, that’s the claim – and let us not pretend that the Occupy Movement has not been fully converted into a front for the blackshirt anarchists, shall we? The following will be familiar to anyone who watched how the antiwar movement got hijacked by the exact same people: So people have to remember, this isn’t a bunch | Read More »
MA-SEN: Sen. Scott Brown’s lead confirmed?
Apparently, there are people who are shocked by this: According to a Kimball Political Consulting survey of registered voters in Massachusetts, Senator Scott Brown has a 6 point lead over Democrat Elizabeth Warren (49 percent to 43 percent) with 9 percent undecided. The figure is just within the survey’s 4 percent margin of error. President Obama continues to hold a double digit lead over former | Read More »
RS Interview: Jeff Semon (R CAND, MA-05 PRI).
Massachusetts is… interesting, this year. Despite being a Democratic stronghold, the MA GOP is putting up a pretty good fight; the NRCC recently talked up three of its House possibilities. I was able to talk with one of them – Jeff Semon, in MA-05 – later on. Come, I will conceal nothing from you. This is Ed Markey’s district, and the Democrats are prepared to | Read More »
The Moment All the Doubts About Romney Resurfaced on the Right
Priorities USA was damaging itself and Barack Obama over its mind numbingly insane ad painting Mitt Romney as a killer. Then the Romney campaign decided to sabotage itself with a mind numbingly bit of spin that may mark the day the Romney campaign died. Defending Romney and combatting the ad, Romney spokesman Andrea Saul . . . let’s go to the quotes “To that point, | Read More »
Democrats lack moral courage to deal with John Tierney (D, MA-06).
Roll Call probably should have expanded John Tierney’s money/campaign woes into its own post, but the details are still tantalizing: The Massachusetts Democrat has less money in the bank and has raised less money in the last three quarters than has GOP challenger Richard Tisei. The reason why Tierney is floundering, of course, is because the embattled Congressman has a bit of an in-law problem. | Read More »
Looking downballot in Massachusetts: Tom Keyes
For the next several months, we are going to be focusing, naturally, on the Presidential race, Senate races, House races, and governor’s races. However, what happens down ballot is important too. And there is a lot of hope down ballot when we look around the country. Over the next several months, I hope to highlight races in unexpected places where Republicans can put points on | Read More »
John Tierney (D, MA-06): Illegal Gambling Crook, or Pathetic Dupe?
John Tierney wants people to know that none of it is his fault. With ‘it’ being a wide-ranging noun: It’s not Tierney’s fault that his wife is under house arrest for her role in an illegal gambling racket. It’s not Tierney’s fault that said gambling racket apparently features a non-trivial percentage of his in-laws. It’s not Tierney’s fault that one brother-in-law is in federal custody | Read More »
Romney’s ‘Strong Leadership’ ad rebuts Obama’s misleading attacks
The Romney campaign has released a new television, titled “Strong Leadership,” touting Romney’s economic record as Massachusetts governor: “As governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney demonstrated strong leadership—reducing the unemployment rate and balancing budgets without raising taxes. As president, Mitt Romney will do the same to help create jobs and get our country back on track.” The ad highlights three of Governor Romney’s economic achievements:
Massachusetts Plans to Squeeze Doctors to Control Health Care Costs
Download Podcast | iTunes | Podcast Feed On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson and Ben Domenech are joined by Josh Archambault to discuss the Massachusetts effort to manage health care costs by squeezing the state’s doctors, how it will impact the quality of care, and whether the national discussion on Obamacare will influence the legislature’s final product. We’re brought to you as | Read More »
Elizabeth Warren’s ancestor traced back to Trail of Tears! …On the side holding the guns.
Yeah, when’s that primary in Massachusetts, again? Because the general election is going to be a trip: …the most stunning discovery about the life of O.C. Sarah Smith Crawford is that her husband, Ms. Warren’s great-great-great grandfather, was apparently a member of the Tennessee Militia who rounded up Cherokees from their family homes in the Southeastern United States and herded them into government-built stockades in | Read More »
Did Elizabeth Warren (D CAND, MA-SEN PRI) actually claim minority status for her own benefit, after all?
I hate to admit being wrong, of course, but I’m pretty much stuck here. You see, last week I RedHotted a post where in passing I more or less indicated that I didn’t think that it was particularly fair to ding MA senatorial candidate Elizabeth Warren for her claims of Native American ancestry. When I read the story, it seemed that she had merely repeated | Read More »
Elizabeth Warren (D CAND, MA-SEN PRI) declares Barack Obama unevolved.
No, really, that’s what she said. The exact statement was “I want to see the president evolve [on same-sex marriage] because I believe that is right; marriage equality is morally right…” – with the implication being that anybody who does not support same-sex marriage is not, ah, fully evolved. Funny thing about that.
Conflicting polls in the Massachusetts Senate Race
I’m happiest when all the polls in a race match up. It means we have a very good idea of how a race is going for the candidates in it. So, naturally, I’m not happy about the Massachusetts Senate race right now. Seeing a 10 point swing from poll to poll, giving both candidates opposing 5 point leads, means we have to dig deeper to | Read More »
Elizabeth Warren’s inaccurate Karl Rove whining.
So let me set the background, here. Crossroads GPS is a 501(c)(4) associated with American Crossroads (a 527 advocacy group which has Karl Rove advising it; this will be important later), and it put out this ad on Massachusetts Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren (who is running, of course, against Republican Senator Scott Brown). Said ad helpfully points out that Warren was up to her eyeballs | Read More »
Does Elizabeth Warren *also* support spitting on our troops?
I ask this because back at the beginning of October Ms. Warren seemed to be very much in favor of the entire Occupy Wall Street ‘thing.’ As the Boston Globe noted: “All of the candidates expressed support for the controversial protesters who are part of the “Occupy Boston” movement downtown.” The question then becomes: does that support include the members of Occupy Boston who went | Read More »
