Skip to comments.Scott Brown is Totally going to win the Senate Race
Posted on 11/04/2012 4:28:37 AM PST by taildragger
Now, lets look at the facts here. Five former and one current Mayor assembled for a rally for Elizabeth Warren in Worcester, Massachusetts. Since no one else showed up to attend the rally, there were more Mayors there than regular people. Almost everyone in attendance was a Mayor.
When I used to do event planning for a living I used to have nightmares about things like this: planning an event for months, working hard to bring everything under budget, inviting scores of people
and no one would show up. That never happened to me, THANK GOODNESS
but I would seriously wake up in cold sweats from dreams about it.

I think Scott Brown is the best Senator that Massachusetts could hope for and my contacts in the state tell me that hes going to win and Elizabeth Warren is hated.
THIS rally above lends credence to that.
I will tell you that as an event planner anything I did outside in Chicago always attracted crowds of lookyloos. There is always a crowd for anything unless people want nothing to do with whoever the event is for.
People want NOTHING TO DO WITH Elizabeth Warren.
Scott Brown will win even though Obama will win Massachusetts. Minitru wont admit it, because its claiming that Massachusetts voters are just going to vote for Obama AND Warren
but thats not true. Theyre going to split the vote and keep the cutie in office.
What an Indian Giver.
Dick Morris is calling the Senate with 53 for the Republican's with a Scott Brown and Maine Loss..
If we win in MA that brings us to 54.
I think Morris is off, with some wind in our sails and running the board, if we get MO, and IN and a PA Smith win and OH Mandel pickup I don't think 57 or 58 is out of the question....
Sorry, but Mandel is going to get trounced in Ohio.
If this is a wave election... and I think it will be. We should have no problem winning tougher seats like the MA seat.
Kevin writes like a teenage girl but I do hope he’s right.
I forget which pundit wrote Mandel’s campaign has been a disaster. I haven’t followed it so I don’t know what went wrong there. Any idea? I wonder if another Republican might have been able to beat Brown, considering how far to the left he is and out of the mainstream.
I really hope that you are right, but I am afraid that you discount the zombie vote. Zombie voters don’t go to rallies, not even ones which are not well planned and publicized.
Zombie voters just arise in vast numbers to plod to the polls and vote as they have been programmed.
Oops it should read: “Not out of the question”.....
All you ever needed to know about the Warren campaign -
Heap big pow pow, Kemo Sabe. All chiefs, NO INDIANS. :=)
I am struck by the mayors behind the podium, my gosh it was like the night of the living dead, no young blood other than the young turk speaking.
It kind of screams as to the lack of vibrancy of the MA, CT and NY economies, any young-in with half a brain has left already....
All we need is 50 Repub senators. Not perfect but we would be in business.
Fauxcahontas needs to be sent back to the reservation...no disrespect intended to our true native american friends...
I had to read the article to make sure it wasn’t you saying that you ‘really liked this guy’(Brown).
However, a friend here in MI has a cousin, a big tea party lad in Boston, and had emailed my friend with his recent take on things... His gut feel? He senses something is up, no Obama signs and people are strangley quiet. Let us hope is gut feel is correct
I must disagree. As MA resident, I can hope for a lot more Conservative senator. But Brown is the best that can be mustered with even a snowball's chance of winning in MA.
I think your statement would be more accurate as:
"I think Scott Brown is the best Senator that Massachusetts Conservatives can get past the Liberals..."
Yes, pardon me for not using qoutes.
I should know this, but is Angus King planning to caucus with the DEMs? My impression is that he would NOT. I'm voting for Summers, just the same.
As strong evidence of this, as a joke I ran into a bunch of sign holding Elizabeth Warren supporters and started to mockingly sing the Communist "Internationale." I stopped after the first line, but the Elizabeth Warren people pleaded with me to sing the whole thing (which I did).
Don Feder was right when he said that Massachusetts is like North Korea. I hope, at least, we don't vote for this horrid Warren individual.
Don’t know. Angus is an interest bird to say the least. I had friends on the coast of Maine in the early 80’s who would rave about him as a news-guy and a champion of the people. I hope he isn’t an egotistic loon like Jesse Ventura, Mayor Doomberg, & Ross Perot. We need another loon like that in the Senate like a hole in the head
We smoke’m peace pipe.
He wasn't when he was governor. He's also not a communist like Bernie Sanders. I think he'd be better than Snowe, similar to Collins.
“However, a friend here in MI has a cousin, a big tea party lad in Boston, and had emailed my friend with his recent take on things... His gut feel? He senses something is up, no Obama signs and people are strangley quiet. Let us hope is gut feel is correct “
I live in Indiana, and that is a long way from Massachusetts,but I agree. Something is afoot here. Everyone is very quiet.Very few signs of any kind.
I may be off but I don't see Mandel getting trounced. Sherrod Brown has had lots of money to throw at negative campaign ads but I don't see it paing off in large numbers of votes. I also have seen very few Brown signs. Was out yesterday through Geauga County and saw more Obama signs than I would like but the only signs with Brown's name were Brown=War on Coal. Lots of Mandel signs. In fact, there were more Mandel signs than Romney/Ryan signs.
Here is a Wenzel Strategies Ohio Poll that they just released that puts Brown's favorable/unfavorable at 47.2 to 49.6 and puts Mandel at 50.2 over Brown's 44.8.
This same poll has Romney at 49.1 over Obama at 45.6. So Mandel is getting stronger support than Romney and Obama has a stronger favorable rating than Brown in this poll. I know there other polls that show Brown still leading but where are you coming up with Mandel getting trounced?
If Romney wins Ohio and Mandel loses that would be a very odd result.
Just to be clear in my post above, Brown=Sherrod Brown (D), the Ohio Senator running for re-election against Josh Mandell (R).
Something IS up. I see plenty of Warren signs, some Romney but almost NONE for O’Bummer.
I am also a former Baystater who left the ancestral sod a long time ago. The place is beautiful and full of history, but also very dead in the present.
Here is a point of contrast. In 1975, after the famous Red Sox vs Reds World Series, Carl Yastremski attended a rally on that very spot which I attended. I worked in the green, glass building on the other side of Main Street behind City Hall in the video. The Common was jammed to overflowing and Yaz promised that the Sox would be back next year. They weren’t. After the speech a line formed down Front Street and Main Street while Yaz retreated inside Home Federal Bank to sign autographs. After about 3 hours he broke for a sandwich and someone told him that he could leave if he wanted to. His answer was “No, I’m not leaving until every last person in line gets an autograph.” All of this was reported in the Worcester Telegram the next day. No wonder Red Sox fans loved the guy. As for the fake Indian Princess, not so much.
I think he’d be a reliable Dem vote, but enough people have the impression that you do for him to win.
As the old saying goes “voting for the lesser of two evils”.
When Mitt wins... and he will... please... all of you... regardless of religion... PRAISE GOD for the victory. Amen.
I’m thinking the dems will get a pretty strong turnout on the US house and senate candidates but they won’t be voting obama. I hope you are right.
I prayed for Scott Brown in Divine Liturgy this morning, just as I did in 2010.
On the way over and back (Central Mass/MetroWest Boston suburbs) I saw a lot more Scott Brown signs than Elizabeth Warren signs. It used to be just the opposite!
As I said on previous posts, Warren is a dangerous megalomaniac, who lusts for POWER!!!! She is an extreme socialist who supports obamacare and near-conficasory taxes on upper-middile class people and small businesses.
In contrast, Scott Brown LISTENS to his constituency. I don’t agree with all his votes, but he is pro-free enterprise and against obamacare.
Hard-line conservative Republicans who keep knocking Brown don’t seem to realize what is at stake—Republican control of the Senate, repeal of obamacare, and sending that dangerous megalomaniac Warren back to Harvard Law School where she belongs.
As a bipartisan Senator, Scott Brown might even be an important ally to President Romney as he seek to reach across the aisle to craft effective legislation and to avoid the deadlock that has characterized the American legislative process in recent years.
