    Scott Brown: Obama not invited to this party
    
    By Hillary Chabot
    Thursday, January 14, 2010 - Updated 3h ago


    Surging GOP Senate candidate Scott Brown yesterday warned President Obama to “stay away” from the Bay State during his roiling race against Democratic rival Martha Coakley and not to interfere with their intensifying battle in the campaign’s final days.
    “He should stay away and let Martha and I discuss the issues one on one,” Brown said. “The machine is coming out of the woodwork to get her elected. They’re bringing in outsiders, and we don’t need them.”

    Scott Brown likes to paint the picture as if he is running against the establishment. Problem for the people who are going to vote for him, he IS part of the establishment.

    Although watching a recent ad for him, you'll see that he tries to hide the fact he's running as a Republican. If he wins, he'll be a one termer at best.

    How do you hide that you are a Republican when running on the Republican ticket?

    And I suppose you win big when you handicap the Kentucky Derby too, right?

    Easy, he paints himself as running against the "political machine candidate" when that is exactly what he is.

    Scott Brown wouldn't last more than a term in office because if he actually had to live up his promises and failed to do so, he would be booted out next term.

    If you look at his record, he has a record of flip-flopping, saying one thing while supporting another, etc.

    By not mentioning that you are a Republican in all (I think) of your ads.

    But if anyone didn't know that Brown was a Republican a couple of days ago they sure do now ...

    It seems to be one of the few things the Coakley campaign can talk about at the moment.

    See, I'm not in your state Art but I get your state's campaign ads. I've seen about two or three different Brown ones, not ONCE does he mention the fact that he's a Republican.

    So I believe you are right.
