“Do you think as a person from Massachusetts that the national reaction to that speech might actually backfire in Massachusetts towards Elizabeth Warren as well to the favor of Scott Brown?”
John said it was very hard to tell.
This weekend noting the president’s dash away from the words he appropriated from Elizabeth Warren, the one member of congress running toward him I asked another question:
If Elizabeth Warren is too left for Barack Obama ya think she might be too left to beat Scott Brown?
Today Scott Brown released an ad that answered that question:
The ad is Brilliant! It quotes Kennedy, Clinton, LBJ, Ford and Reagan and their messages of praise for the American entrepreneur with the speeches of the president and of Elizabeth Warren with the words:
How did we go from this…to This?
Once a one minute version of this ad starts playing it’s going to be devastating. Why because as Ed Morrissey notes it contrasts yesterdays Democrats with the current lot:
It’s the use of traditional Democrats that’s most effective, though, and one suspects the claiming of the Kennedy mantle that will most sting Warren and the Democrats in Massachusetts. The ad reminds voters that this isn’t their fathers’ Democratic Party any longer — a point Joe Lieberman made last week — and that Warren and Obama represent extremes on the Left that remain very much disconnected with mainstream American attitudes about enterprise and the role of government.
That has been the biggest advantage for the left in Massachusetts, they have been living off the legacy of JFK and others when the only resemblance they have with them is the letter “D”.
This is going to be devastating to Warren in an election where she needs to find votes outside her normal comfort zone.
Be Afraid Democrats, be VERY afraid.
Update: Greg Sargant Media Matter’s favorite MSM echo is calling Brown a liar, that means he is right on target. If that wasn’t proof enough the Maddow Blog Kos and Charles Johnson have joined in (no links for them). This suggests this is a real game changer and they know it.
The DaTechGuy Fundraiser is in progress, I’d really like to hit that primary goal of $3000 before the end of July. Can you help?
