Political strategist extraordinaire Eric Fehrnstrom is the gift that keeps on giving. Fehrnstrom provided the Warren campaign with a great analogy to compare Scott Brown’s relationship with the oil industry, it something that could stick in voters minds. Of course I’m talking about the Etch-a-Sketch quote when he was discussing Romney’s campaign, Scott Brown strategist’s direct quote.
FEHRNSTROM: Well, I think you hit a reset button for the fall campaign. Everything changes. It’s almost like an Etch a Sketch. You can kind of shake it up and we start all over again.
“What the lobbyists want, what Wall Street wants, is they want Etch A Sketch Senators. They want the ones who will clear the screen and change their minds to do whatever big money tells them to do. That’s what they want. But let me tell you — I’ve been fighting for middle class families for years and nothing — nothing — will shake that commitment.”
Scott Brown is currently in the process of making a second charitable donation in breaking the People’s Pledge, the largest oil lobbying firm, Washington D. C based, American Petroleum Institute started airing radio ads and newspaper ads which tried to circumvent the People’s Pledge by a loophole advertising legislation that Scott Brown already supports, big tax breaks for oil companies instead of helping the middle class. Scott Brown has already raked in about $200,000 in contributions from the oil industry.
