Brown For US Senate - BROWN CAMPAIGN RELEASES NEW WEB VIDEO: "THEN AND NOW" 

 



BROWN CAMPAIGN RELEASES NEW WEB VIDEO: "THEN AND NOW"
 
 
MANCHESTER Today, the Brown campaign released a new web video titled, "Then and Now,” that contrasts Jeanne Shaheen’s efforts to distance herself from President Obama in 2014 with her past enthusiastic and whole-hearted support for him.
 
When asked by Andrea Mitchell yesterday on MSNBC whether she would welcome the President on the campaign trail in New Hampshire, Shaheen declined, saying, “I expect him to be in Washington.”
 
But it was a different Shaheen in 2008 who fully embraced Obama and his agenda, declaring in a speech at the Democratic National Convention, “Together with Barack Obama as our President, we are going to move this country in a new direction." Shaheen thought so highly of President Obama's first term that she served as co-chair for his 2012 re-election.
 
"Jeanne Shaheen has spent the last six years rubber-stamping President Obama's policies and going along with his agenda, which has weakened us at home and around the world. No amount of election year posturing can change that," said Brown Campaign Manager Colin Reed.  "With President Obama’s approval ratings at all-time lows, it’s understandable why Senator Shaheen would abandon him now but she can't change her record of voting with Obama 99% of the time."

Transcript "Then and Now":

Jeanne Shaheen: Like everyone in this room tonight

I am so excited that it looks like Barack Obama is going to be our next president

Together with Barack Obama as our president

We are going to move this country in a new direction


Andrea Mitchell: And having the President come won’t be helpful

Shaheen: Um, well the President is dealing with a lot of crises in the world right now

So I expect him to be in Washington


President Obama: I’m not on the ballot this fall

But make no mistake – these policies are on the ballot


Shaheen: I am so excited

Garcia For Congress (CD2) - Marilinda Garcia Releases Latest Video “Will A Kuster Face the People?” 

"/

 

Concord, NH– Kenny Cunningham, communications director for Marilinda Garcia for Congress, released the following statement and this video questioning whether Ann Kuster will face the people of New Hampshire:

“Throughout her entire political career, Rep. Ann Kuster has developed a reputation as someone who chooses to avoid communicating directly with her constituents, and instead hiding behind negative, misleading TV ads. Kuster has never held a single town hall meeting during her time in Congress. During this election, she has refused to publicize campaign events, rejected multiple debates with Marilinda, and most recently refused to participate in a town hall forum in Littleton with Marilinda,” said Cunningham.

“Not only did Ann Kuster refuse this valuable opportunity to meet and talk with voters in Littleton, but she even sent multiple political “trackers” to the event who were tasked with video-taping Marilinda Garcia’s every move in hopes she would do something embarrassing. New Hampshire voters deserve better than dishonest and secretive politicians who are unwilling to appear in public. Marilinda Garcia is running to be the open and accessible leader that New Hampshire deserves, and her campaign is continuing to gain momentum because of her commitments to honesty and integrity.”

Brown For US Senate - BROWN CAMPAIGN RELEASES NEW WEB VIDEO: “WHAT IT’S ABOUT” 



BROWN CAMPAIGN RELEASES NEW WEB VIDEO: “WHAT IT’S ABOUT” 
 
MANCHESTER On the heels of President Obama’s statement yesterday that “every single one” of his policies are on the ballot in November, the Brown campaign released a new web video titled “What It’s About.”  The spot frames up November’s mid-term election as a referendum on Senator Shaheen’s record voting with Obama 99 percent of the time.

The video includes footage of Brown at a town hall meeting in Derry where he defines this election as the last chance for voters to pass judgment on the Obama Administration’s failed policies. It concludes with the words on the screen reading: "Send a Message to Obama: Vote No on Shaheen."

Transcript: “What It’s About”

Scott Brown: We need to send a very powerful message because he’s not up for re-election
I know you are shocked to hear that
But his number one foot solider Senator Shaheen is

President Obama: I'm not on the ballot this fall
But make no mistake these policies are on the ballot
Every single one of them—every single one of them
This isn’t some official campaign speech or political speech
And I’m not going to tell you who to vote for
Although I suppose it’s kind of implied

Brown For US Senate - AS JOE BIDEN COMES TO NEW HAMPSHIRE, BROWN CAMPAIGN RELEASES WEB VIDEO: "NO STRATEGY"


AS JOE BIDEN COMES TO NEW HAMPSHIRE, BROWN CAMPAIGN RELEASES WEB VIDEO: "NO STRATEGY"
 

MANCHESTER - On the same day that Vice President Joe Biden campaigns for Sen. Jeanne Shaheen in Portsmouth, the Brown campaign released a new web video that highlights the incoherent foreign policy of the Obama Administration.
 
The 30-second web video opens with a scene from the 2012 presidential campaign of Biden praising President Obama’s “strength and steadiness” on foreign policy.  Biden goes on to say that the Presidenthas a “clear vision for America’s place in the world.”  
 
Those comments are then juxtaposed with President Obama's admission last week that “we don’t have a strategy yet” for containing ISIS.
 
Jeanne Shaheen, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, continues to be a rubberstamp for the Administration's weak and indecisive foreign policy, voting with President Obama 99 percent of the time.  Yesterday, the Union Leader editorialized that Shaheen showed weak leadership on this issue, noting that she has failed to articulate a plan for "dealing with the thousands of terrorists already on the ground in Iraq and Syria."
 
Today, while the Vice President campaigns with Senator Shaheen, Scott Brown will host a foreign policy town hall in Hudson, marking the sixth town hall of the "New Hampshire Speaks" series to discuss the ongoing threats facing our nation, with a focus on stopping ISIS.
 
Last Friday Brown called on Congress to pass a bill that would immediately strip any American who fights alongside ISIS of their passport and citizenship.


TRANSCRIPT FOR "NO STRATEGY":

VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN: President Obama has made those hard calls with strength and steadiness.
 
And the reason he’s been able to is because he had clear goals and clear strategy how to achieve those goals
 
He had a clear vision and has a clear vision for America’s place in the world
 

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We don’t have a strategy yet.
 
VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN: I am very optimistic about Iraq. I think it is going to be one of the great achievements of this administration.
 
PRESIDENT OBAMA: We don’t, we don’t have a strategy.

Brown For US Senate - BROWN RELEASES WEB VIDEO ON ISIS


 BROWN RELEASES WEB VIDEO ON ISIS, CALLS ON CONGRESS TO PASS LEGISLATION TO PROTECT U.S. FROM ISIS-AMERICAN FIGHTERS

MANCHESTER - As United States intelligence reports indicate that as many 300 Americans are fighting alongside ISIS in Iraq and Syria, Scott Brown today called on Congress to immediately pass legislation that would strip homegrown terrorists of their American citizenship. The campaign also released a new web video on the growing threat of ISIS, and the need to stop them.
 

In 2010, Brown introduced the bipartisan Terrorist Expatriation Act, which would revoke the citizenship of those “providing material support or resources to a Foreign Terrorist Organization” or “actively engaging” in “hostilities against the United States or its allies.”  In 2011, he introduced another similar piece of legislation called the Enemy Expatriation Act.
 
“One of the greatest threats facing the homeland today is the mayhem that will happen when hundreds of American ISIS fighters return to the United States to spread their terror here. Their goal is to march down Pennsylvania Avenue and plant a flag at the White House, and mass killing is their means for achieving that goal. That's why Congress needs to pass legislation that would strip the citizenship of any American who joins a foreign terrorist organization. We need to keep our country safe by stopping these American ISIS fighters from re-entering the country."

 
The new web video, titled “
Reestablish America,” features highlights of Brown’s recent foreign policy-focused town hall with Arizona Senator John McCain. In the video, Brown, who recently retired as a colonel after 35 years in the Army National Guard,  criticizes the Obama Administration’s “incoherent” foreign policy, saying “our friends don’t trust us and our foes don’t fear us.”

TRANSCRIPT - "Reestablish America":

Scott Brown: Right now we have a situation with ISIS
 
ISIS makes al-Qaeda look like Boy Scouts
 
What is the goal of ISIS
 
It’s to actually get their own country
 
Get the resources as they are doing
 
And export terrorism around the region and the world
 
You look at what’s happening, as Kelly referenced in the Ukraine with Russia
 
You see what’s happening in Israel
 
Being attacked and harassed daily by Hamas
 
There are so many issues on the table right now that are affecting our foreign policy
 
We have one of the most incoherent foreign policies right now
 
And our allies don’t trust us
 
And our foes don’t fear or respect us
 
We’re in trouble and we have a real problem
 
The best answer is to take back the Senate, reestablish that trust, get our fiscal house in order and reestablish the trust with our allies
