“I’m Scott Brown, I’m from Wrentham, I drive a truck, and I am nobody’s senator but yours”
Where did he turn wrong?
Well, Scott doesn’t know….so perhaps it’s about time we helped him…
First, let me say for the record that Scott Brown would make an excellent Governor, or serve well in nearly any government capacity, IF he gets his head straight. Right now, let’s face it, he’s on a whining tour, and it really doesn’t shine well for him.
This past week Scott felt compelled to BLAME CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICANS for his loss against the fake, liar ultra-liberal “indian”. The Cape Cod (phenomenal) radio station WXTK repeatedly quoted Scott’s frustration with conservatives who found him so liberal they wouldn’t support him or let him into ‘their’ tent, their big-encompassing tent….
Tent? Tent? You’re stuck on this tent analogy?
Scott. Can we talk?
For the record, Scott, your campaign repeatedly told conservative Republicans NOT to support you: your campaign ran from conservative Republicans, your campaign turned its back on conservative Republicans, your campaign went out of the way to tell the world how liberal you are, and how much you wanted to step across the aisle and work with others.
Someone SHOULD have told Scott two things:
1. The Conservatives are not against you Scott. They like you. In fact, as disappointed as I was with your HORRIFIC campaign run by village idiots, as well as how disappointed I was with your votes, your pandering to the left, and your bragging about how many times you voted with the Democrats, as well as how disappointed I was that you flip-flopped on so many issues, now taking extreme left positions, well, even with all that, I STOOD ON A STREET CORNER HOLDING YOUR SIGN for FIVE WEEKENDS with a gaggle of local Republicans at the CORNER OF CENTRAL AND MAIN STREETS in a tiny New England town. It wasn’t enough. I couldn’t balance the many who lost all enthusiasm for you…who just couldn’t find it to support another barking liberal…which is how your useless campaign portrayed you…far from the normal guy with a bright brain, a strong voice, a heart of gold, and a head of great intelligence, and a love for family, community, and country. Your campaign blurred or buried all that.
2. You can’t pet a cobra.
You thought that you could get all close and sweet with the the ubra-leftists and that they would love you for it, respect you for it, play nice with you, and not rip the crap out of you in your re-election bid.
As that shrink on TV would say, ‘hows that working out for you?’
You got crushed because YOU REFUSED TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE MODERATE CONSERVATIVES, THE RIGHT-LEANING CONSERVATIVES, and the EXTREME CONSERVATIVES within the Republican and Democratic parties.
Look at the political spectrum.Don’t let the extremists on either side screw with you. They did. You let them.
YOU talk of a big tent, and want the CONSERVATIVES to support you and let you in it. Well Scott, they did. They tried to, but you wouldn’t play with them. Some thought you were getting closer to Communists than Liberals. See. Tough place to play trying to straddle a fence. I have a nice scar to show you what happens when you slip and fall. The iron spike goes through your arm. You’re hanging there in mid-air, trying to use your other hand to lift yourself up, yank your arm out of the spike, and then grab the meat, fat, and squeeze and try to keep the blood from gushing too much. Long walk home. You figuratively did that in your campaign. Hoisted on your own campaign’s slippage.
Scott, I know folks who spent hours in the snow for you the first cycle. Folks who worked night and day doing everything they could for you. Many of those same folks were not the least bit interested, and in fact, wouldn’t waste their time on you this run. They saw your campaign, they saw your actions, they felt kicked out and they just couldn’t stomach it any longer. Your campaign kept telling them to stay away….
(Memories of so many hand-made signs from the the first run…where conservative leaning Democrats and Republicans all supported Scott Brown…)
Why? Because they saw the ultra-extremist liberal methods of your campaign, your actions, your staff actions…that you were on a losing trajectory, going down in flames, lost the truck, lost the touch, lost the connection with real people, lost your way, and to make matters worse, emitted a radiant glow of superiority, looking down at people who had previously supported you, essentially telling conservatives you didn’t need them, you only needed the leftists and the Democrats. You kept accentuating your liberal leanings, and burying your conservative leanings.
Scott, my bride and I first met you at a conservative meeting. I found it amazing what pains your campaign took to distance yourself from conservatives and accentuate your liberal leanings. You went out of balance. Way out of balance.
Now, you’re starting to re-emerge, and your whining and blaming speech this past week, well, it doesn’t befit you. You’re better than this. YES, we know you would be with the conservative spectrum 61% of the time, and that the fake indian would be against the conservative spectrum 100% of the time.
Yes, logically, the conservative spectrum knew they had to swallow hard and vote for you, once again, the lesser of two evils. For some of us, we did that, but YOU WERE THE LAST STRAW. The last time. And, with regret,
you distanced yourself from, insulted, ran from, insulted, and otherwise did your best (or rather, your useless stupid wasteful campaign did it’s best) to tell many in the conservative spectrum to STAY HOME, ignore the vote. And they did.
The conservative spectrum has been presented with :
– liberal-leaning McCain
– liberal-leaning Romney
– liberal hugger Scott Brown
– liberal Richard Tisei
– liberal “I’m more liberal on most issues than Obama” Charlie Baker
– liberal ‘I’m going to be a pain to the GOP’ Gomez (anyone remember him? he’s sailing off into the hopefully-to-be-forgotten long list of liberal Obama donors who for some reason felt compelled to run AGAINST Republicans, as a Republican. Go figure.)
– the list goes on…..
What do they all have in common?
Yup. They all ran strange campaigns, pandered to liberals, telling the conservatives to just send money, but stay at the back of the bus, don’t come up front, don’t let anyone see them with the conservatives, unless of course (Romney) when they really, truly, truly thought it would get them some money or votes. And for that Romney would flip flop like a dry towel on a clothesline in a windstorm. And, they ALL lost.
Oh, and for now, let’s just put aside the issue of the MassGOP which has gone through a cycle of weakness, fractures, and liberal infestation (which continues today….but alas, I digress).
Scott? Are you listening Scott? Scott? Scott?
The conservative spectrum has a message for you:
We like you. We would love to support you.
How about including US in your “big tent”?
Massachusetts NEEDS you Scott. The country needs more people like you.
Scott. Find yourself. Move forward. Be you.
