Elizabeth Warren Dominates Scott Brown In First Debate

At the end of the day, Republican Scott Brown wants Mitch McConnell to run the Senate & Mitt Romney to run the White House. #wbzdebate

By: Jason EasleySeptember 20th, 2012

Brown jabbed at Warren’s annual income, and kept coming back to the claim that she wants to raise taxes. Scott Brown’s strategy is simple. He is hoping to peel off conservative Democrats by portraying Warren as an extreme tax and spend liberal. Warren hit Brown for voting to raise student loan rates, and opposing closing a loophole that is used by the wealthy. Brown’s consistent reply when his voting record was brought is that Warren is lying about his record.

Brown tried several different personal attacks on Warren including her heritage, income, and the Traveler’s insurance case. Sen. Brown seemed willing to talk about anything except his voting record, unless he was talking about the votes where he sided with Obama. Brown tried to appeal to union voters with the Keystone pipeline lie, which Warren knocked down. Warren scored big by pointing out that if Brown wins, and the Republicans take control of the Senate, global warming denier Jim Inhofe will be in charge of oversight of the EPA.

Warren kept returning to the theme that women and the middle class need a senator that they can depend on all of the time. Elizabeth Warren has probably surprised a lot of people including the Brown campaign by going toe to toe with Sen. Brown. It was hard to believe that this was her first ever debate. She was strong, and most importantly she passed the eyeball and ear test. She looked and sounded like a United States Senator.

Scott Brown wasn’t horrible, but in a Blue State where Obama is popular, any conservatism in his record presents a risk. Elizabeth Warren did an excellent job showing voters the difference between a Republican who is trying to buddy up to Obama in order to save his job, and a real progressive Democrat.
