Brown, Warren Both Produce Commercials Using…Obama?

With President Barack Obama heading into reelection, it’s understandable that many Democrats will want to tie their election campaigns to him, especially as he is regaining popularity with both his party and the country at large.

Which is why the new campaign ad being released by Democratic Senatorial candidate Elizabeth Warren makes a lot of sense.  What is a little more confusing is why her rival, Republican incumbent Senator Scott Brown is doing it, too.

Warren’s campaign is hoping to remind the voters of Massachusetts of her past attempts to help regulate the financial industry, and she has the president stepping in to do it.  In the new spot, he praises her and her work on the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, calling her “one of the country’s fiercest advocates for the middle class.”

But freshman Senator Scott Brown is standing by Obama, too, in his latest ad.  In it, Brown discusses his attempts at bipartisanship, and the pride he felt at being by the President’s side during a bill signing.  “Standing with President Obama on the day he signed it into law was another one of those great experiences.Whatever else may separate us, we are Americans first. To me, that means we need to work together now.”

While Warren’s big struggle currently is to introduce herself to voters who don’t know her, it looks as if Brown’s big problem is trying to reinvent himself and run away from the party who put him into office in the first place.  We’ll see who is more successful in November.

When you try and vote the party of NO out you better make sure that you can vote. Some States have changed their voter registration laws so that even if you wanted to vote you won't be able to. PLEASE CHECK the voter registration laws of the States that you live in NOW, so that you can have the right ID when it comes time to vote. PLEASE tell ALL your friends about this, especially students, seniors, immigrants and the poor. I am sure that the 1% will be flocking to the voting booths so that they can retain their power and money. The 99% had better start THINKING about what will happen if the republicans get in again. For example, no contraceptives which will lead to more people. Right now 7 BILLION PLUS. No abortions even for sick babies, unwanted babies because of rape or incest. No Jobs, undrinkable water because of fracking, war with Iran, no health care. Abstinence programs only, which do not work and many others. Sex Education is needed so that unwanted pregnancy and abortion can be lessened along with STD’S that can KILL your child. So if you don't vote and get as many as you can to vote along with you and the republicans get into power this may and probably will happen. Here is an idea, car pool with a car full to the voting booths (saves gas) and after you vote, have a party and KNOW that you have done your best for your country. Have a designated driver. PLEASE REMEMBER, DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE.

Scott Brown SHOULD thank the President,especially regarding the Affordable Care Act. since he can now keep his 23yo. daughter on the family health plan.
Currently Brown is calling for repeal of "Obama Care"
"Cutting off ones nose to spite ones face ".I believe is an appropriate comment.

Obama regaining popularity among his party?? I really don't think so. He certainly hasn't with me with his sham act now that election time is near he pretends to be there for us when he has ignored us all along and catered not to the progressives but to the republithugs.

Scott Brown doesn't have the brains God gave an ant. He's manipulative and shifty eyed, plotting the usual tactics to get the votes.
Brown voted with big oil at a time when big oil doesn't need any more cash. I have a letter from him stating his reason for voting for big oil subsidies was because it DID NOT LOWER the gas prices for US. Bullshit.
Guess we'll never know if taking money AWAY from big oil will help the gas prices.
Why don't you just cut off one of our arms, we won't stop you anyway. Same old same old.
No, I think Scott Brown is an ass and a bullshitter. We have enough of that already in Washington
Onward Elizabeth!

Scott Brown voted for big oil subsidies. I just got a letter back from him with his reason for this vote. He gave them the up vote because it wouldn't LOWER gas prices. So he gave oil companies MORE money because it wouldn't do the taxpayer buying gas any good. Does that make any sense to anyone? I think it's criminal. On the other hand, he probably feels that taking away their subsidies would be socialism.
If you don't already know, I'm supporting Elizabeth Warren. Scott Brown is a shifty, manipulating ass... something we have too much of in Washington.
