DeLauro 'Fighting Against a Tea Party Agenda'?

News and updates on Connecticut's Senate and Third District races.


Linda McMahon (R) and Chris Murphy (D) debated for the fourth and final time on Thursday. Social security and women’s issues were some of the main topics. According to CBS News:

Throughout, Democrat Murphy cast himself as a defender of the middle class and McMahon as a hard-hearted plutocrat. Republican McMahon, who is running in a largely blue state, defined herself as an "independent thinker" and a job creator and slammed Murphy as a failed career politician.

As with the past debates, both candidates repeated many of the same talking points. According to the New York Times:

The debate, which broke little new ground as both candidates largely recycled talking points from previous debates, ended a phase of the campaign. Mr. Murphy has been gaining a bit of momentum in a tight race that had earlier been dominated by Ms. McMahon’s aggressive campaign and expensive television ads.

3rd District

Rosa DeLauro (D): A letter from DeLauro’s campaign manager asking supporters for donations says DeLauro “is fighting against a Tea Party agenda that is working to dismantle what we have achieved and block us from progress moving forward."

Wayne Winsley (R) said on Facebook that he’s looking forward to having breakfast with activist Alveda King, niece of Martin Luther King Jr

No problem. We'll just push back and fight against rosa delauro.

Fighting against a government run amok, fighting against a sound fiscal policy, fighting against anyone that would question her husbands favorite Monsanto genetically modified food... yeah she's a whole lot of use that one.

I spoke with Rosa face to face one day. She did not know that a convicted felon may not own a gun. She did not know that we do not have gun registration in this country, and she did not know that the Americans with Disability Act was a federal law.

Rosa is losing it. The DNC Steering Committee charged her with leading a propaganda operation known as "The war on women", which is news to women. Now she's fighting a phantom tea party, as though she's Velma from Scooby Doo. Not only is she responsible for the total partisan breakdown of Congress, Rosa's lost her edge big-time. She always carries a thick binder with her wherever she goes, and peruses a fixed list of buzz-word answers to every question. It is arranged topically with tabs so she can search under, say, "Obamacare" and then "death panels" to find a snappy remark. Her staff compiles this binder on a daily basis through the DNC talking points cables that are issued every morning. This canned-verse situation has grown so intolerable that Rosa had this binder with her when she taped the closed-session debate with Winsley. (The ONLY case where she agreed to appear in the same place with her African-American challenger!) She even had to flip through the sacred binder for a proper answer when Winsley stumped her with a remark on Obamacare. She didn't have to do that in her last debate in 2008, so it shows how degenerative her mental capacity has become in four years. To see Rosa make a completely moronic fool of herself on television, check out the "Face the State" debate from Sunday. It's a ridiculous freak show of outright lies and fantasy legislation like her 16 year-old National Infrastructure Bank Act which not even Pelosi wanted to pass!

You're not just making a political statement, you're speaking of a truly evil situation: Rosa's currently worth a cool $40 milllion, with some $17 million being her own filthy, filthy lucre given to her as a reward for bailing out the biggest mafia bankers on Wall Street, while her crime-boss of a husband Stanley Greenberg was paid millions by Monsanto and other massive mega-corporations to influence Rosa into organizing the wholesale extermination of family farms. Yes, its easy to say Rosa is a career politician when she campaigns on supporting small farms and helping families, while her political agenda pushes farmer families into the grave in order to expand massive donors like Monsanto, ConAgra, and the Sugar cane lobbies. Saving America begins with throwing out all the incumbents. Voters must take responsibility for returning Rosa to office where she commits genocide against starving people in North Africa and commits illegal warfare on family farms.
