This does not strike me as a smart move in Massachusetts. Certainly he knows the President’s favorables in this state. The same article says the theme of the ad in question is to tie Elizabeth Warren to Barack Obama via their similar comments about how those who build businesses do it with help. If we could guarantee that all those who vote for Obama will also vote for Warren, Brown would be updating his resume for sure.
The third accolade [quoted by Brown in his fundraising appeal] comes from Libertarian Republican, which has suggested or stated that Obama is a Muslim on several occasions, although the president has repeatedly described himself as a Christian. As recently as Saturday, Libertarian Republican editor Eric Dondero wrote a blog post about the start of Ramadan under the headline "America's Muslim President celebrates Islamic holiday." Dondero told The Huffington Post on Friday that he was pleased to hear the Brown campaign was promoting his endorsement of the blockbuster ad. "I think Sen. Brown has always had an appeal to the libertarian wing of the GOP," Dondero said. "He's a fiscally conservative, socially tolerant Republican, kind of like a William Weld-type from the 1990s, and we love him." Dondero added that it is a "fact" that Obama is Muslim, pointing to a 2008 interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos in which the president references "my Muslim faith" while acknowledging that his opponent then-Republican presidential candidate John McCain had denied such rumors.- promoted by david
