Obama Bashes Brown and Scott Browns Crowd and Support Grows Stronger

Republican Scott Brown is a regular guy who drives a truck with nearly 200,000 miles on it. He says the truck has brought him closer to the people as he’s traveled around Massachusetts during the special election.

Barack Obama campaigned for Martha Coakley in Boston and bashed Scott Brown and truck owners several times during his speech. Obama told the crowd, “Anybody can own a truck.”


Scott Brown responded to the president’s attack.

FOX News

Obama warned Massachusetts voters Sunday from following Republican Scott Brown's old pickup truck around the state, saying if elected to the U.S. Senate, Brown will drive health care and the rest of the Democratic agenda off track.

In a quip he repeated several times during a campaign appearance for Democrat Martha Coakley, Obama mocked the man who has been driving a pickup truck around the state, claiming he's a "lockstep" Republican.

"Martha's opponent already is walking in lockstep with Washington Republicans," Obama said, criticizing Brown for opposing the president's proposed tax on Wall Street. "She's got your back, her opponent's got Wall Street's back. Bankers don't need another vote in the United States Senate. They've got plenty. Where's yours?"

Obama also took jabs at Brown's signature vehicle, and his "slick ads."

"So look, forget the ads, everybody can't can slick ads. Forget the truck. Everyone can buy a truck."

Brown took that opportunity to slam the president on government spending..

“Mr. President, unfortunately in this economy, not everybody can buy a truck,” Brown said in a statement. “My goal is to change that by cutting spending, lowering taxes and letting people keep more of their own money.”


It holds 3,000 and frankly only 2,000 to 2,500 showed up.”

Martha Coakley and Barack Obama held a rally today in Boston. They couldn’t fill the hall at a university.

Carl Cameron was at the hall in Boston and said that Coakley and Obama couldn’t fill it up.


Scott Brown draws much bigger crowd!!!

It took three venues to hold all of the supporters yesterday.

Scott Brown filled the 1600 seat Mechanics Hall, a 700 seat ballroom at the Crown Plaza Hotel, and the nearby 500 person capacity Osgood Bradley Building yesterday for the Massachusetts People’s Rally.

1600 people inside Mechanics Hall
600 people inside the Crown Plaza (Streaming)
400 at Worchester Headquarters, (Steaming) they actually watched the event on Streaming video
"Several Hundred" outside Mechanics Hall

Total in all around 10,000 people fired up about protecting their country. People do the wave at a massive rally that was the SCOTT heard around the world.


Scott Brown and daughter Ayla Brown with Doug Flutie and Curt Shilling


Scott Brown’s spech:

Thank you very much. What a privilege it is to share the stage with John Ratzenberger, Lenny Clarke, Doug Flutie, Curt Schilling, Fred Smerlas, Steve DeOssie, and many, many others – and my favorite singer, Ayla Brown.
As you know, Curt Schilling made the news just a couple of days ago when my opponent didn’t recognize his name. Of all the many false accusations she’s made in this campaign, one of the strangest was to call Curt Schilling a Yankee fan. Let me properly identify the guy she’s been smearing on the radio: His name is Curt Schilling, formerly of the World Champion Red Sox – you know, a baseball team that plays at Fenway Park
Doug Flutie, what can I say, great guy, great career, and I am proud you are here. John Ratzenberger, a wonderful actor, you brought a lot of laughs to us during your many years with Cheers. Fred and Steve, you are legends and good friends. Ayla, thank you for again sharing your beautiful voice. Millions have seen her on national TV, and going through this campaign I've got an idea of what Ayla went through on "American Idol." She had to deal with Simon Cowell, and I had to deal with David Gergen.
Our campaign is going strong, and the finish line is in sight. The day of decision is almost here. The whole nation is watching, but the choice on Election Day belongs to you and no one else. Friends and fellow citizens, I'm Scott Brown, I'm from Wrentham, I drive a truck and I'm asking for your vote.
When we started this campaign just a few months ago, the political machine wrote us off. A Senate seat in Massachusetts, we were told, was already spoken for - and this special election was just a minor detail that wouldn't get in the way. The political machine already had a short-term placeholder in the Senate. Now all they needed was a long-term placeholder, and everything had been arranged.
Well, there was just one little problem with that plan - the independent-thinking people of Massachusetts wanted a real choice, and they - and you -- have made this a real contest.
The voters are doing their own thinking, and the machine politicians don't quite know how to react. So they put in a distress call to Washington, and the next thing you know, Air Force One is landing at Logan.
My first response is very simple: Democrat or Republican, the president of the United States is always welcome in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
Now, it wasn't exactly a scheduled visit. Sort of a last-minute thing. The political machine controlled that Senate, he was told, and it was going to stay that way.
Well, the party bosses gave the president some bad information. This Senate seat belongs to no one person and no one political party - it belongs to the people of Massachusetts.
Maybe they also told President Obama that I had no chance at all. After all, who ever heard of guy from Wrentham getting elected to the U.S. Senate? But as the president might remember, upsets like that have been known to happen.
The president may recall as well how much he used to talk about a new kind of politics - about campaigns based on conviction, instead of just false and small-minded negative ads. Well, as long as he's paying a visit, he might want to talk to Martha about that. Not only are her ads negative, they are malicious. How quickly the politics of hope have become replaced by the politics of desperation. Shame on Martha.
Before the president rushed to the scene, we saw my opponent standing with a former president, the governor, the senior senator, the appointed senator - the whole party establishment, right on down the line.
At the beginning, it felt like me against the machine. But guess what? I was wrong. It's us against the machine.
I don't need an establishment to prop me up. I stand before you as the proud candidate of Democrats, Republicans, and Independents across Massachusetts, north and south, east and west.
The party machine is in high gear for my opponent. The establishment is afraid of losing their Senate seat. You can all remind them that this is not their seat, it is yours.
Should I have the honor of representing our state in Washington, D.C., I will serve no faction but Massachusetts. I will pursue no agenda but what is right. I will be nobody's senator but yours.
One of the great advantages of being independent is that you meet voters of every kind. And you learn what people are really thinking about the big issues facing our state and our country. The political experts are still wondering how this little campaign of ours grew so fast and gathered so much strength and momentum. The reason is simple.
We do not want a senator whose only question on health care is to ask Harry Reid, "How do you want me to vote?" Massachusetts wants real reform, and not this trillion-dollar Obama health care bill being forced on the American people.
This bill would raise taxes. It would cut Medicare by half a trillion dollars. It would be unfair to our veterans. It would destroy jobs, and run our nation deeper into debt. It is not in the interest of our state or country - and as your senator, I will insist we start over.
I will work in the Senate to reform health care in the right way, the honest way. No more closed-door meetings behind the scenes. No more arrogant party leadership. We can do better, and as the 41st senator I'll make sure of it.
In health care, we need to start fresh, work together, and do the job right.
On the question of taxes, my opponent this week endorsed yet another tax increase. She summed up her whole approach by saying, quote, "We need to get taxes up."
She has it exactly wrong: We need to get job creation up, and taxes down. I will work in the Senate to put government back on the side of people who create jobs - and as John F. Kennedy taught us, that starts with a tax cut for the American people.
As a lieutenant colonel and 30-year member of the Army National Guard, I will keep faith with all who serve, and with our veterans, too. I will work in the Senate to defend our nation's interests and to keep our military second to none.
In our debate, my opponent insisted that there are no longer any terrorists in Afghanistan. Maybe the president can pull her aside today and explain the basics: There are still many terrorists in Afghanistan, Martha! They are at war with the United States, and for the safety of this nation we must defeat them
As an attorney, I believe that our Constitution and laws exist to protect this nation - they do not grant rights and privileges to enemies in wartime. In dealing with terrorists, our tax dollars should pay for weapons to stop them, not lawyers to defend them.
Raising taxes, taking over our health care, and giving new rights to terrorists is the agenda of a new establishment in Washington. And they think you're on board with all of it. They think they own your vote. They're sure they can't lose. But on Election Day, the Bay State will set them straight.
We are witnesses, you and I, to something historic. We have run a race never to be forgotten. We are in a cause that deserves all that we can give it. In these final forty-eight hours, let us see it through to victory.
All along, I have counted on the goodwill and support of independent-minded people like you, and never more than right now. I ask for any help you can give, and above all for the honor of your vote.
In return, I make this pledge to you and to every citizen of Massachusetts: If I am entrusted with the people's seat, I will give everything that is in me to be a good and faithful senator, and to make you proud.
Thank you all very much.


Scott Brown for US Senate website

From his YouTube site

About Me: I'm a candidate for US Senate in Massachusetts and a 29 year member of the Army National Guard. I'm running for US Senate to make Jobs, JOB ONE and to get our economy back on track.

And here is his Facebook page

Wild Thing's comment.......

It is a tsunami against Obamunism. Let us lock and load and take no prisoners.

“Well, according to PPP Obama and Clinton campaigning for Coakley resulted in Brown increasing his lead."

Lamentations from the DailyKos. Heck, I could have told them that the Obumbler would be the kiss of death to Coakley's campaign. He's piling up a real stack of losses.

PPP = Public Policy Polling it is a leftist polling group from my understanding of it.

I hope and pray we can all do the Snoopy Beagle Happy Dance after the election. A Republican replacing a Kennedy would be historic.


....Thank you Jack for sending this to me.

Side-by-side these speeches are striking. Scott Brown talks like a leader; the jerk talks to us like we are preschoolers. Scott is truly of the people; the jerk is tone-deaf. Brown has ethics and morals; the jerk knows not what these 2 words are.

Obama wants a Senator that will put the peoples interest first. Now how does that square with Health Care, where the PEOPLE don't even get a say in what kind of Health Coverage they will get. So much for the peoples interest first.

What obama wants is a "Sock Puppet" or in his case a hand maiden.

I truly hope that Scott Brown wins, but regardless of the outcome, O'Vomit and his circus of commie clowns are going down.

I just went to the FACEBOOK site, and somebody is reporting that the Union, Coakley's husband belongs to is endorsing Scott Brown.

This is a referendum on Obama but I think, also, its a general attitude of "I have had it with the Kennedy's and its time for a change."

Mark - I think the same matter the outcome the people have spoken out and I am so will happen!!!
