Brown to Face the Nation: Obama is a “good man”

Scott Brown of the sleazy grin is not even pretending to stay with the people who elected him. He’s sticking it right in their faces. The man is not only false. He’s a fool. First, he’s a fool to be so open about his contempt for the people who elected and supported him. Second, he’s a fool for not realizing that the Obama Revolution has decisively ended the older politics in which Republicans could imagine that Democrats were “good men” who shared the same loyalties and ideals as themselves, but just had “different opinions.”

Brown even told Face the Nation: “There’s too much partisan politics.” That hackneyed comment is the definitive mark of a liberal who wants principled conservative opposition to liberalism to go away—or, in this case, who wants principled conservative opposition to Obama’s leftist Revolution to go away.

From Politico:

On his first Sunday show appearance, the Republican from Massachusetts said President Barack Obama is not so bad after all, and the tea partiers were not the only ones to get the senator elected.

After declining, in several ways, to answer whether the president was leaning toward socialism, Brown said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that the president is “a good man.”

“He has a good family. He has two wonderful daughters … I recognize that challenge and what that can hold and I respect the office of the president and I’ve always said that he is an American,” Brown said. “I know he cares deeply about our country, but there’s just different priorities.”

About snubbing Sarah Palin at a Boston rally and not attending tea party protests in Washington? Brown said he had a job to do.

“My role now as an elected official is to do my job,” Brown said.

After a few months in Washington, Brown said his view of the town has not changed.

“Washington is broken, the perception is correct,” he said. “There’s too much partisan politics involved and as I’ve said before, I’ll be the 41st vote when its appropriate and when it deals with issues effecting my state and this country, and I’ll be the 60th vote because we need to get things moving. People are hurting.”
