Today, the RNC attacked Senator Jeanne Shaheen for doing her job.
You read that right. The RNC released a research document accusing Sen. Shaheen of “running away” from Vice President Biden. In fact – as their research doc even states – she is in Washington to chair an Appropriations subcommittee hearing – a responsibility she has as a duly elected U.S. Senator from New Hampshire.
When you win elections, you have a job to do. That’s how this works.
If anyone’s “running away” – it’s Scott Brown. The Scott Brown of today is running away from the Scott Brown of the past. As a Massachusetts Senator, Brown had embraced the People’s Pledge, but now in New Hampshire, he fears running for Senate without air cover from Big Oil and Wall Street. And Scott Brown can’t run fast enough away from reporters when asked about whether he supports Medicaid expansion that would benefit Granite Staters.
We’ve seen inane attacks before, but the RNC is setting the bar even lower with this latest hit. Ironically, it also comes less than 24 hours after the GOP’s preferred candidate to run against Senator Shaheen in New Hampshire, former Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown, told the AP: “Do I have the best credentials? Probably not. ‘Cause, you know, whatever.”
So the RNC wants to elect Scott Brown, who doesn’t even believe he has the best credentials for the job, while attacking the U.S. Senator who’s working hard to deliver results for Granite Staters in the Senate? That makes sense. ‘Cause, you know, whatever.
