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:
