    Brown's first endorsement may backfire - The Hill's Blog Briefing Room

    In response:

    Brown camp won't say whether controversial endorsement is legitimate - The Hill's Blog Briefing Room

    But the Hudak campaign stands firm and says Brown gave a endorsement and that Hudak is not a Birther despite his clear Birther statement to the paper.

    Is this the sort of change and things that Scott Brown was talking about? :eusa_think:

    The fact you don't is the problem.

    First off, who cares.

    Second, you now can't endorse someone if they have any single thing you find objectionable?

    Frankly, I don't know whether Barry was born in the USA, the fact he won't produce a genuie BC to end this makes him look like a douche, but its not something i care about.

    So now before you say I like this guy's political ideas you have to make sure he never said or did anything that some butthole didn't like or be called a crank?

    Get serious, what you are doing is called 'politics as usual' and we all have damn well had enough of it.

    Who cares what the fuck this guy called barry, is he able to do the job he's being endorsed to do?

    THAT is what matters.

    I don't consider believing the President of the United States to be not born in this country and comparing him to Osama Bin Laden to be a minor matter. If it were a matter of political differences, this would be irrelevant. It's the same deal as believing that Bush and the Government were behind 9/11 and that there are FEMA death camps.

    And well you're not about to go and support a neo-nazi for office are you? You could completely agree with his views, but are you going to vote for him with that knowledge in mind? I don't know about you, but I'm not going to. Character is a important part of the candidate. Coakley looking down upon shaking hands with her voters lost her votes big time and showed she had a lack of character.

    You jump from piddling to the adsurd, now you go from questioning where Barry was born (a legit question considering how he won't end the speculation) to the absurd of neo nazis.

    Like i said, politics as usual.

    Enough of it.

    He won't end speculation for the same reason that Bush didn't come out and take a lie detector test to prove the truthers wrong.

    A.) It hurts them more than Bush/Obama.

    B.) They are the POTUS, not some evil mastermind who's hellbent on destroying the country.

    And I brought up neo nazis to make a point about character which you talked about during the campaign cycle with Scott Brown in terms of how bad character that Coakley had. But now you're considering it irrelevant to the conversation and calling it "politics as usual."

    I don't think questioning someone's character when it is an important piece of someone's campaign to be "politics as usual."

    So while you may try to easily dismiss my points, you're ignoring just about everything you and others did to Coakley during this cycle by posting her mistakes as AG (such as not charging the person who raped that poor kid with an iron, sick bastard deserved worse than jail.)

    But was it wrong to bring up character issues then? No.

    My point has been made. If you don't like it, then you can avoid the "politics as usual" in your eyes by avoiding this thread.

    Petty personal smears are soo 2008. I guess the Dems haven't caught on to that yet. I guess they'll have to learn the hard way. What's next? Are they gonna go after Brown's children too? They just might huh? How sad.
