Coakley/Brown Election Day
While talking about just one inappropriate comment from a "bullying" supporter of Scott Brown, here is what John Kerry has to say about the enthusiastic conservatives rallying in support of Brown:
Massachusetts Senator John F. Kerry is calling on Republican Scott Brown, who is waging a surging campaign against Democrat Martha Coakley, to curb his supporters, saying that they have engaged in "bullying and threats" in recent days and that some of them are from out-of-state.
"I'm no stranger to hard fought campaigns, but what we've seen in the past few days is way over the line and reminiscent of the dangerous atmosphere of Sarah Palin's 2008 campaign rallies. This is not how democracy works in Massachusetts," Kerry said this afternoon in a statement.
"Scott Brown needs to speak up and get his out of state tea party supporters under control. In Massachusetts, we fight hard and win elections on the issues and on our differences, not with bullying and threats," Kerry said. Are you laughing yet?
1) They change the law each election cycle so that the Democrats have the system in place which benefits them. This time if Brown wins, for instance, they will withhold the certification until the health care bill is passed. In just the last election they changed the law in order to certify their Democrat the very next day after the election.
2) It was reported on Fox News yesterday that a full 19% of voter registrations in Massachusetts are fraudulent.
3) Dan Winslow, counsel for the Scott Brown for U.S. Senate campaign, will hold a media availability to announce the filing of a criminal complaint against the Massachusetts Democratic Party regarding a recent mailing paid for and sent by the Massachusetts Democratic Party. Winslow will make a statement and take reporters’ questions at MassGOP Headquarters in Boston.
4) SEIU has reportedly dumped nearly a $1 million of rank-and-file dues into Martha Coakley’s campaign. After all, the health care bill which she will help pass gives the union members many years of preferential treatment for their health insurance, for which the rest of us will foot the bill. They pulled out all the stops before the primary and they’ll be throwing all their ground troops into the Bay State over the weekend, it has been noted. I assume, according to John Kerry, that these troops will only come from the state of Massachusetts, right? And I guess Kerry thinks it's okay if "outsiders" such as Bill Clinton and Barack Obama don't pose a problem...
5) SEIU is also accused of using their email to tell every worker to vote for Coakley, which is apparently against the law.
Of course when any large group of voters enthusiastically supports conservative candidates, the "possible terrorist" theme reappears. Sara Palin is once again denigrated. As I recall it was the friends of the Democrats, the SEIU Union, who sent SEIU thugs to various election sites, to the homes of AIG executives and to Tea Parties to intimidate Americans - the Chicago way.
We do know how the SEIU thugs operate. Andy Stern’s organizational motto is: “We prefer to use the power of persuasion, but if that doesn’t work we use the persuasion of power.” Look for them in today's film clips of the election in progress.
Unfortunately, as Michelle Malkin notes: Yes, once again, it’s up to grass-roots conservatives and independents to help a GOP candidate fight the Big Labor-backed corruptocrat. Demcare hangs in the balance. Yet, Brown received a measly $50,000 from the national GOP and NRSC compared to the nearly $1 million that radical leftist Dede Scozzafava raked in.
I was going to make a joke about the race by using this headline: Coakley loses - Bush is to blame. However, they are already saying that George Bush is the reason she is trailing!
