Well Jim even the titles of these proposed "Acts" are a hint as to the fact that they were political soap opera. The Paycheck...Act would have hurt small businesses across the US- that's why Brown and every Republican woman Senator voted against it- even liberal papers like the Washington Post saw it for what it was a cynical attempt to gain support from women. The Americans Jobs Act was an even bigger boondoggle spending 447 billion dollars over ten years to gain maybe 1 million jobs-government spending our money again- sort of like the stimulus bill spending that did little.

Isn't it wonderful that Massachusetts is being portrayed so glowingly at the DNC? From Mumbles' cringing away from a Chick-Fil-A sandwich, to him invoking "Marsha Luther King" during his speech, to Warren refusing to speak with representatives of "her people". And then Deval telling us he doesn't want to see Obama "bullied" out of office. The networks must be thankful that the Fall comedy season started early this year! If there are on-the-fence voters from other states watching the convention, do you really think it was helpful to have these folks at the forefront of the party? Warren, who claims to be both from the "ragged edge" of the middle class, AND a Native American. Yet she is well above even Obama's threshold of "wealthy Americans". And how can you trust a candidate who won't sit with her own people? What would voters say if Obama refused to meet with the NAACP? Ridiculous.

Could not have said it any better Chris. The Dems are in trouble and they are trying all of the stupid tactics that they hope will stick to the stupid people!!

Think about this...Elizabeth Warren is a radical left wing left-over hippy from the late 1960's...("I am woman...hear me roar" activist). Bill Clinton was disbarred for sexual harassment while in office and spent our tax dollars having an affair with Monica Lewinsky. If Bill Clinton were a republican rooting for Romney, Elizabeth Warren would have torn him to pieces and thrown him to the lions. Bill Clinton was also found guilty of perjury and fined $25,000 while he was President....certainly was a little hypocritical to have both Warren and Clinton at the same podium. Bill Clinton gave a 50 minute speech filled with inacurate and misleading information at the democratic convention.....this was dirty politics at its best! Elizabeth Warren, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama all deserve to be fed to the lions! I believe in honesty and will be voting for Scott Brown and Mitt Romney this November!

Cheryl - get your facts straight. Warren is far from 60's hippy. From Wikipedia (which has references to everything that follows): "At Northwest Classen High School, she was named "Oklahoma's top high-school debater". She received a debate-team scholarship to George Washington University at the age of 16. Initially aspiring to be a teacher, she left GWU after two years to marry her high-school boyfriend Jim Warren. She moved to Houston to be with her husband, who was a NASA engineer. There she enrolled in the University of Houston, where she graduated in 1970 with a degree in speech pathology and audiology. For a year, she taught children with disabilities in a public school, based on an "emergency certificate", as she had not taken the education courses required for a regular teaching certificate. After taking several graduate education courses, she decided against pursuing elementary school education as a career. She cites Methodist founder John Wesley as an inspiration." Flower child - hardly.
