Brown: Elizabeth Warren “a self-proclaimed rock thrower who wants to leave blood and teeth on the floor”

Brown: Elizabeth Warren “a self-proclaimed rock thrower who wants to leave blood and teeth on the floor”

I think this is a winning theme, that Warren will be the Dennis Kucinich / Maurice Hinchey of the Senate, someone who can spout far-left rhetoric and play the anti-factory owner card, but will be marginalized as a Senator.

If the people of Massachusetts want someone who will accomplish nothing but headlines, Warren is their person.

Via Mediaite:

Co-host Brian Kilmeade asked Brown why he decided to use video of President Barack Obama’s highly-publicized “you didn’t build that” remark in an ad targeting his senate opponent, Elizabeth Warren. Brown replied that he felt the President was echoing Warren when he made those controversial comments.

“People should know that Professor Warren made her statements over a year ago – they’re almost verbatim,” said Brown. “The President got bad advice from Professor Warren, certainly.”

“He says he has been taken out of context and Mitt Romney hasn’t been candid with him, and basically you’re doing the same thing with Elizabeth Warren,” Kilmeade asked.

“She has actually doubled down and believes that we should have more government interference and more government regulation and more taxes,” said Brown. He said that his ad shows “what America was and what it can be.”

Klimeade asked Brown about his tight race for a full term in the Senate from Massachusetts, which has fast become the top Congressional race in the nation for dollars raised and spent. “How are you dealing with all of this attention,” asked Kilmeade.

“I’m going to be the same person I’ve always been,” said Brown. “I’m an independent voter and thinker. I vote 54 percent with my party – I’m the second most bipartisan senator in the United States Senate.”

“Can you imagine 100 Professor Warren’s down there; a self-proclaimed rock thrower who wants to leave blood and teeth on the floor,” Brown asked.

“Can you imagine 100 Professor Warren’s down there; a self-proclaimed rock thrower who wants to leave blood and teeth on the floor,” Brown asked.

That is EXACTLY what hardened Collectivists want to see.

The question is, how many of them are in the voting population of Massive-two-spits?

As a lifelong Rhode Islander, it is intersting to note that our state was founded by Roger Williams, who left Massachusetts for Rhode Island due to religious intolerance in Massachusetts.

I love it when two Dems go at it.

We should not forget one small thing: Professor Warren is being groomed.

For President.

Stop laughing, I’m serious.

Please note her career trajectory and compare it to Obama’s. Academic, financial canoodling on the side, government jobs, then the Senate, then bingo.

Please note the people helping her — many of them are the same people who helped Obama.

It works like this: Obama gets a second term. He keeps Slow Joe as VP, and by 2016 every Democrat knows that Joe isn’t going to be the next nominee. So who to pick?

Why, Obama’s ideological successor, that’s who. SENATOR Warren, now four years into the job (same level of experience that Champ had) with all the same backers, money people, and so on.

Of course Romney getting elected would throw a wrench into this, as would Brown being re-elected. But the folks running this plan on getting both Champ and Warren elected. They’ll work on Champ’s agenda, but even more importantly they’ll work on grooming Warren.

That’s where this is going. You read it here first.

    OMGoodness!!! I never thought of this. I believe you’re right.

    This election takes on more importance every day. It is truly our last chance. We Have to STOP this cycle of “fundamentally transforming” our country.

    Thank you for your post…very enlightening…

    God Bless America!

    If you read it here first, you didn’t see McCoy2k’s comment back in March or mine in January and June.

    Googling ‘Elizabeth Warren for President’ yields more than 48K hits.

      Pardon, it was a rhetorical flourish, and I’ll take it back.

      The Atlantic article you cite is instructive. The Democratic bench is empty, isn’t it.

        An algorithm just blew up on me and I’m in a vile mood.

        I appreciate the clarity and insight of your comments. You might consider starting your own blog.

          Thank you, that’s very kind. I’m a moderator at Rantburg where I help Fred Pruitt. I do some in-line commenting and occasional pieces. I’m afraid I’m rather snowed under IRL and so taking on another challenge would be difficult.

          Just parenthetically, I do wonder how folks like Prof. Jacobson do it — a high quality blog is a LOT of work.

    Actually, I am laughing. Warren is too much of a moonbat; she can sell it locally to MA, but not the rest of the country. This is a center-right country – not a leftist country.

    Just like Chappaquiddick doomed Ted Kennedy’s chances of ever becoming President, I feel that Indian-gate will forever prevent Warren from advancing on the national stage. This country will not vote for her ilk. MA voters, however, are just plain looney.

“I’m an independent voter and thinker. I vote 54 percent with my party – I’m the second most bipartisan senator in the United States Senate.”

So either way, MA will get a liberal Democrat.

    If you think there is no difference between Brown and Warren you are not thinking. If the point is abandoning the GOP and starting something new now, then that is a different goal than many of us want right now. That will certainly result in Obama, Warren and a bunch of other liberals winning. Maybe electing Brown is losing more slowly, but I want to see control of the Senate shift and Brown staying in office is part of that effort (regardless of his squishy voting record).

Liberals are always telling themselves they are so smart, yet their ideology is so transparent and stupid. Some of the more brilliant statements recently have been saying the new batman movie is anti-repbulican, but when is enforcing the law from a bunch of communist thugs and drug dealers (core democratic constituencies) and advocating free market economics with personal charity a democratic position. Bain’s advocation of dwindling “hope and change” in the front of mobs while holding them hostage is exactly what has been going on the past 3 years.

Good analogy. The thing about throwing rocks is that the thrower can throw and then hide. The victim is hurt with few chances of retaliation. Throwing punches requires getting in the ring and receiving some punches as well. Rock throwing is either cowardly or prudent. In the case of President Barack Husein 0bama and Princess Elizabeth, they are cowards. They lie. Unfortunately for us, they have told so many lies they wouldn’t recognize the truth if it hit them it head.

1. The latest poll shows a toss-up though Warren has regained a narrow lead.

2. Brown has given a cold shoulder to conservative activists whose efforts got him elected. If he loses, that likely will be the main reason.

    I would take that “latest poll” with a grain of salt. It is registered voters, not likely voters, they are polling. I suspect this race remains close but I do not see that poll suggesting Elizabeth Warren is gaining momentum.

    Any conservatives in Massachusetts not supporting Brown over Warren are not thinking. Yeah he will piss us off and be weak, but he is a no on Obamacare (he is committed to that) and regaining the Senate and repealing it has to be our number one effort right now.

      I expect MA conservatives to vote for Brown. As matters stand right now, I don’t expect them to give him their time and money like they did in 2010. Especially their time.

      It’s up to Brown to make amends for his ingratitude. Unfortunately, he might be too full of himself to do so.

      (IMHO the main reason MA conservatives are alienated is not Brown’s voting record. The main reason is that he refuses to even listen—to even pretend to listen—to their input.)

It’s sad from my perspective that my Left of Lenin sister, who has as much Indian blood as I do, is not at all put off by Warren’s blood-heritage rip-off of the Cherokee people. The ultimate response from Professor Sis? “Well, who are we to judge her life?”

It’s interesting to note in Brown’s new ad, the city flyover clip (around 1:58 on the video above) is from Houston. The white building with the cap on top is the former Continental world HQ (before they became Untied), and those two shiny buildings are Enron I and Enron II (the rounded one, II)!

He’s determined to lose this race. This is the wrong tack.

I definitely don’t think a Senator should vote lockstep with his party, but I’m not keen on Brown’s 54% record he’s touting. Let’s see, he voted with Susan Collins of Maine against extending the Bush-era tax cuts to everyone. He voted against ending sugar subsidies, against allowing FDA approved drugs to be imported from Canada, in favor of reauthorizing the Ex-Im Bank, and more.

It’s not that he’s voting against the Republican party line, he’s just not voting for conservative/libertarian principles.

I understand the alternative is Elizabeth Warren, but it’s horrible that we get stuck with these weak candidates all the time.

Brown seems like a moderate Dem who went GOP as his perceived only vector to high office.

Scott Brown won his 2010 race with the votes of Democrats, independents and Repuublicans. He must rally the same broad support to win again. Masssachusetts is not South Carolina. Jim DeMint could not win here. Warren is an ideologue like Obama spewing hatred of the sucessful and promoting class warfare. She is a dangerous opponent because she appeals so effectively to the worst in human nature — envy and resentment. She got where she is by cheating on affirmative action requirements she knew she didn’t qualify for. She lies with more sincerity and passion than Obama and Clinton put together. That’s why the far left money is pouring in. Scott Brown can and will win because he works with all sides and demonizes no one.

If Brown loses, it’s because he’s an arrogant ingrate.

Conservatives lined up for him as the “lesser of two evils” in 2010.

He made lots of promises about “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” bailouts, etc. He went back on those promises while releasing statements bragging about about his political courage and independence.

I’d rather Brown won. But here’s the quandary for moral, thinking people: it is virtually impossible to support enthusiastically someone who has repeatedly betrayed you after you enthusiastically supported him before.
