Harry Reid lashes out at Scott Brown

11/14/12

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) lashed out at Sen. Scott Brown on Wednesday as he expressed confidence that Democrats could hold on to the Massachusetts seat if Sen. John Kerry is nominated to a Cabinet position.

Speaking to reporters Wednesday, Reid ridiculed Brown’s calls for bipartisanship, saying the defeated Republican “should look up in the mirror.”

“I saw his plea for bipartisanship,” Reid said dismissively. “That is a big joke. It’s a travesty. He’s one of the most partisan people . He could have saved Citizens United. He could have been the 60th vote on many other things. … I don’t need any advice from him on bipartisanship.”

5. Scott Brown...

... is a political opportunist and a liar. Pickup truck and all.

He hds his chances to show the *bipartasanship* he now spews... but he didn't.
He cowered to the ignorance and intolerance of the teabaggers, just like the rest of the republicrats did.

I will never vote for a republicrat for any office for any reason ever again. They are not to be trusted or believed. They have shown beyond any shadow of any doubt that their words don't match their intentions... just like the way terrorists spread lies and fear among those they want dominion over around the world.

38. I'm 54 and...

... have voted for a few... Reagan (only once) and a couple local republicrats - only because I knew them, but have since voted against them, well... not *for* them.

I have usually voted 3rd party because I've always believed both parties are guilty of the same thing and that neither party had what We the People needed. Of late tho, I've been voting democratic because they are NOT republicrat and had the best chance of beating the terrorists (the R's). I prefer a viable other option or perhaps a *None of the Above*

I am an independent (not by party registration). That means I am allowed to like ideas from wherever they come from. I am a progressive and proud to call myself liberal. Conservatives and conservatism are nasty words in my book, due mostly from what the republicrat party has done and said over the past couple decades. And the Teabaggers.... don't even get me started on those bone-headed bafoons...

6. Why do people assume Scott Brown would win the other MA Senate seat?

He just lost to Elizabeth Warren by 8 points.

Seems he's not as popular in MA as he thought he was.

who didn't act like she wanted the job. Had that woman had more fire in her belly about representing the constituency, he probably would not have been elected.

27. Because corporate media is telling them he is popular! It's a fucking sham!

They all wanted Massachusetts to keep a corporate hack in the US Senate disguised as a moderate, what a damn joke.

You are right, Massachusetts just told the nation how popular Scott Brown was when they defeated him by 9 points!

9. I hope Obama takes into account that MA Dems are worn out with Senate races though

Apparently the MA Dems would ideally prefer not to have to go through another Special Senate election, so it's something to keep in mind.

I guess Deval Patrick would be allowed to appoint a Dem to the seat if it was vacant until the Special election, yes?

16. He won it once already...

and he could win it again. In my opinion it would depend on who we would put up to run against him and it would have to be someone damned good.

He has the Boston media in his camp due to his wife who is part of that club. They are all pretty cozy and he gets a lot of good press because of that connection. Jim Braudy (the so called democrat) fawns all over Brown every chance he gets.

Warren was smart she spent a lot of her time campaigning in other places besides Boston.

And she had the endorsement of Boston Mayor Menino, as well.

The game plan seemed to be "just hold your tounges and play nice 'till the President gets a Second Term.

Recess is now over on this particular playgorund, and the GOP is about to start getting hit in the head with the dodgeball.

As a Massachusetts voter who voted for Elizabeth Warren, I am so happy that Reid could see through Brown's bullshit. Wish more people saw it, as well.

36. Scott Brown is stupid. He decided to attack Warren on being a Harvard professor without realizing

that many people in Massachussets are proud of having such a prestigious university in their state, and thus, any graduate from said university.

One thing repukes should realize is that you don't blast Harvard or any person that went to Harvard, for being associated with education or Harvard in any way, if you want to win.

So yeah, Scott Brown should just go back to doing Playgirl centerfolds.

37. As a former Bostonian

I agree, but there are exceptions: does the name Romney sound familiar? He has two graduate degrees from that esteemed institution.
But generally, yeah. I even sent SENATOR Warren a campaign contribution from here in Florida. But that's a whole other story.
