Short answer: Yes. If you are Scott Brown.
The Herald (of course), posted an AP story stating:
U.S. Sen. Scott Brown is planning to deliver what he’s calling a major policy speech about the need to keep taxes low.
Brown was in Randolph for a
town hall meeting South Shore Chamber of Commerce meeting.
Okay great, personally I welcome a debate on policy. Let Brown lay out his plan for taxes and the economy and let’s have a discussion on his positions. Can’t wait.
The remarks, delivered to the South Shore Chamber of Commerce at Lombardo’s in Randolph, were billed as a major policy speech, but did not make any new policy pronouncements
Then we have this:
he did not take questions from the chamber audience or the press, walking out the back door with a cellphone on his ear
Psst Scott. Didn’t want to be the one to tell you, but attacking Warren’s heritage is not a major policy position.
Brown billed this as a speech on policy, not only that, it was a “major” policy speech, so get the reporters out there Brown is going to make a major announcement. Brown’s pathetic dog an pony show was obviously to deflect the anvil that teabagger Paul Ryan now has wrapped around his neck. The Washington Post asked Republican candidates if they want to have Ryan campaign for them. Brown’s response?
Sen. Scott Brown’s (R-Mass.) campaign declined to comment.
Sadly, Brown can’t speak of policy. His campaign is built on deflection and attacks, anything to avoid discussion positions and policy.
