Brown responds to Coakley ad

Brown doesn't respond to any of the points made in the Coakley ad and instead plays the role of the High Road guy.

The ad ironically talks Coakley not talking about healthcare and jobs: two things that Brown doesn't have any solutions for.  In fact, the only real argument Brown makes in either case is that Coakley is going to go spend, spend, spend with democrats in Washington.

The one thing that I find interesting about both campaigns is the lack of party association in any of their ads.  I can only assume this is clearly a fight for the independent vote.

The inevitible

I think it was only a matter of time before the campaign turned negative.

I cast my vote today, but I am now extremely nervous and no longer confident of a Coakley victory. My impression is that Brown has traction on all the necessary evil of the Obama Administration that would have otherwise played out well before 2010.

The new Ras poll shows Coakley up only 2% points. It's just a one day poll, and there has yet to be a poll showing Brown in the lead other than that one PPP poll (even Brown is calling it a tight race). Hopefully we'll know more by the weekend where the race stands.

My concern is that this will doom healthcare reform. I really thought I went through all the nail biting already over Joe Liberman and 60 votes. Now, to have to do it again is just too much...

If Democrats lose this race, the party will go the way of the Whigs.  The race will be a sign that this is increasingly a very conservative country.

RE: Kent's back!
hehe, you wanted us to think Obama was the most liberal Senator in the entire Senate. (which he wasn't). But then America elected someone you thought was left of Bernie Sanders and you say this is a conservative country. Good one.

I'm a MA resident and when I saw this ad which supposedly is in response to her 'attack' ad

it more than crossed my mind that his 'response' ad has been 'in the can' for quite some time.

In other words, this was his campaign's generic response to whatever could be labelled her 'attack'.

It's too bland and vague to be a response to what her ad  states and which is not 'negative' by any means , rather it's more of a infomercial on his State Senate record.

His response makes me think they expected something else and had it can ready to go.

Good point.  Never thought of the possibility it was canned.  It is so vanilla.

negative ad backfires

his lovely daughters response to that "abortion rights" ad was very real and very effective.

Id now bet he wins.
