It just ain’t happenin’ for her.
Mass Resistance has pictures from Brown’s rally in Littleton, earlier, today, which attracted hundreds outside in the snow and ice.
Love this sign:
Mass Resistance also has pix up from a Sunday rally in Boston:
Which attracted a few feeble Obots. Why do I say Obots? Just look:
Someone was listening to Obama’s speech yesterday…but did she actually understand what she was hearing?
Now, we’ve recovered most of your money already, but I don’t think “most of your money” is good enough. We want all our money back. We’re going to collect every dime. (Applause.) That’s why I proposed a new fee on the largest financial firms — to pay the American people back for saving their skin.
What is the connection between a “new fee” and getting all our money back? Isn’t it great that we’ve got most of the money back, and isn’t it enough to get the rest the money back? Why the fee? To punish success? To my ears, it’s a non sequitur.
But instead of taking the side of working families in Massachusetts, Martha’s opponent is already walking in lockstep with Washington Republicans, opposing that fee, defending the same fat cats who are getting rewarded for their failure.
But you didn’t explain the fee. You’re demonizing the bankers — “fat cats” — the very people that you gave our tax money too. And how are they “getting rewarded for their failure” if the bailout worked? Why aren’t you pleased with the effective use of our tax money? It’s incoherent.
Now, there’s a big difference here. It gives you a sense of who the respective candidates are going to be fighting for, despite the rhetoric, despite the television ads, despite the truck. (Laughter.) Martha is going to make sure you get your money back. (Applause.)
Get our money back or impose that “new fee”? Scott Brown isn’t against getting the bailout money back, is he? This is deliberate obfuscation, it seems.
She’s got your back. Her opponent has got Wall Street’s back. (Applause.)
That sounds nicely slogan-y, but what does it mean? You can count on Democrats to be hostile to business? How is it defending us to attack Wall Street, and if it is, why did you give so much of our money to Wall Street?
The scene at 7:00 pm.
