With so many things going on there are some things I just haven’t had time to write about, one of them is the Sean Bielat Debate with Joe Kennedy. Lucky for you Smitty is on the case

Joe Kennedy strangely enough doesn’t seem to be all than anxious to have another televised debate in Ma-4. After watching this debate with Sean Bielat I just can’t imagine why.

Clearly, Kennedy wants to be highly visible and available to voters in the district without having to engage too often with his opponent. It’s too cautious an approach for a 32-year-old newcomer. Perhaps Kennedy does have the magic to re-establish a great political name in a new century, but he should have to prove it — repeatedly. Voters in the district, which runs southwest from the Boston suburbs to the Rhode Island border, deserve more than just smiles, handshakes, and gentle words. Kennedy should be challenged hard, and pressured to prove his worth. In the five weeks remaining in the campaign, he should agree to more debates.

Bielat, 37, has an impressive resume, including service in the Marine Corps, an MBA, and a master’s in public policy from Harvard’s — ahem — Kennedy School of Government. He also has the experience of having run two years ago against Frank, who, whatever his flaws, cannot be accused of ever ducking a debate; he and Bielat squared off nine times.

BTW that bit of verbiage comes from that Bastion of conservative thought known as the Boston Globe.

Of course Sean has some fans a bit more biased:

…lucky for everyone else Smitty was able to make it an excerpt:

The prospect of debates, after the GOP primary on 06 September:
Joe Kennedy doesn’t appear eager to engage. One student-led debate has apparently been accepted by the Kennedy campaign. But Joe is no fan of unscripted appearances.

And his latest ad

That is the democrat party in a nutshell. Their words rarely match their actions.

Joe Kennedy is dodging and frankly I don’t blame him, if I was as empty a suit as he was I’d duck too.

…I’ll get attacks on this issue but that’s life.

Sean Bielat on fixing Social Security 4-26-12

One of the first rules of campaigning is you don’t promote your opponent but the quote above was the was the most telling line from a blogger conference call with Sean Bielat last Thursday.

Sarah Rumpf who you know better as Sunshine State Sarah said that on the call remarking that Sean Bielat has not been shy about answering questions, even uncomfortable questions on tough issue and made himself available to do so, both on the conference call and back at Blogcon:

On the other hand the only thing we know about Joe Kennedy is that he against low oil prices, which must be a shock to the senior Joe Kennedy whose energy company provides oil to those who can’t afford it.

When your website is so empty of substance that your political foes send people to it, and when you are even ducking MTV’s question that is quite a contrast to the Kennedy tradition:

or to put it another way:

JFK: “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”

Joe Kennedy for congress: Ask not!

Now THAT’s a battle cry to inspire the voters!

And now Dueling Joe Kennedys:

Joe Kennedy of Joe for oil fame:

“No one should be left out in the cold”

Joe Kennedy Running in the 4th district

“The cycle that allows cheap oil to trump tough choices has to stop”

News Center 5 on Joe Kennedy providing low cost oil last winter

“Last year 180,000 sought fuel assistance This year 260,00 people need help”

Joe Kennedy running for the seat vacated by Barney Frank this year:

“The cycle that allows cheap oil to trump tough choices has to stop”

People needing help from Joe Kennedy providing cheap or free oil

“The thermostat is set to 62 degrees and the oil money is slim”

Joe Kennedy for congress 2012

“The cycle that allows cheap oil to trump tough choices has to stop”

Joe Kennedy the elder thinks that prices are so high people with incomes up to 200% over the poverty level need help to stay warm, even if that help comes from Hugo Chavez.

Joe Kennedy the younger running for congress thinks a cycles that allows oil cheap enough for people in need to pay is not good for Massachusetts.

He can make try to make that case to the people of the 4th district paying nearly $4 a gallon for gas when at the end of the Bush years they were paying under $2.

He can make that case to the people of the 4th district who will shortly be seeing oil pre-buys costing $4000 or more this fall

And he can make that case to the people in the fourth district who will be forced to go to Joe Kennedy the elder for the oil to keep warm this winter that they can no longer afford to buy.

I have a strange feeling they just might disagree.

Cue the Banjos…

Update: The timing of this video is perfect:

Sean Bielat talks about where his offices are located at the Hopedale meet and greet 3/25/12

This BTW is the last in my Sean Bielat series from the Hopedate Meet and Greet, I did participate in a Bloggers call with the Candidate yesterday, but got there late due to Mass. Smitty have a good overview here including a lot of the stuff I missed.
