(CNN) – Massachusetts Republican Senate candidate Scott Brown criticized Democratic rival Martha Coakley Monday after she made political comments at a Martin Luther King Day breakfast the two candidates attended.
During her remarks, Coakley said she is running for the Senate because Dr. King's work remains unfinished, and then asked for the audience's votes in the special election Tuesday.
As brown was leaving the event, he said told reporters he was "disappointed" Coakley made political comments at an event billed as nonpolitical.
Who cares what Brown thinks? It's time for more women to come forward and lead and not destroy like Sarah Palin Go Martha Go!
Even those of you WITH insurance will see your premiums increase 80-100% in the next 5 years without this health care bill.
Also, pre-existing conditions will keep you from getting coverage when you change jobs.
We should all remember on this day that Martin Luther King was a REPUBLICAN. He would not be happy with the democrats current philosophies of entitlement and victimhood for African Americans, all with the purpose of maintaining their voting block. African Americans need to discard the enttlement and victim mentalities to move further ahead.
Well Brown won't make efforts to continue Dr. King's efforts so I can understand his frustration.
Oh whatever, Brown!
People of MA: If you let this man win this election you will be electing yet another Republican to the Senate who will oppose every single piece of legislation that will help us get out of the mire the country is in as a direct result of Republicans being in control. Is that what you want??? I realize that Coakley ran a TERRIBLE campaign. That being said, Brown would be TERRIBLE FOR THE COUNTRY! Get out tomorrow and, if you must, hold your nose but VOTE FOR COAKLEY!
I wonder does Brown want any cheese with his WHINE.
How low can she get, this was about MLK not her, I guess she forgot where she was. What a twit, I wounder what she can see from her front door? (sound familiar)
2010/2012 Change is coming
Hey, she's desperate.
Just another sign of desperation on Coakley's part. Thanks for representing "We The People", Scott. We're behind you!
Mr. Brown thinks a Martin Luther King breakfast is going to be nonpolitical? Rubbish. The principles King espoused are political and to comment on his work in any sense is to express political philosophy.
I'm disappointed that Brown would try to claim high ground when he turns around and tries to score political points off the same event by putting down Coakley.
Coakley did not put down Brown at the event. She simply told people a little about herself and reminded people to vote. Brown is the one that went below bar in his condescension.
How shocking! A politician acting political. A Republican would ever do that!
I thnk that she was making a point that Dr. King really want everyone to have a more equal chance. This health care reform bill could give more people to have the oppertunity to have health care insurance and better chance of having health care that doesn't drive them bankrupt. That is a major reason why people wait until the last minute to get things checked out at places like the ER where it is most expensive.
Who was this event honoring MLK Jr. or Martha Coakley? Apparently event organizers went for Coakley. It is a shame!!!
I sincerely hope that Mass can return some balance to the legislative branch by electing BROWN.
The country needs balance , 3 wings in the same party is NO GOOD. especially these 2 parties.
Sounds to me like the lady is desperate!!!!!
I might have my history wrong but I recall MLK's message being about equality without regard to race, creed or religion not your health plan??? Also note how the "Senior Producer" did not capitalize "brown". An honest mistake by bohn I'm sure. Great reporting CNN. LOL
Yeah that is sleazy and opportunistic.
Mr. Brown, don't be disappointed. She is a card carrying member of the National Democratic Socialist Party (Nutsi). They politicize everything. I am surprised she didn't blame something on Bush during her statement (one symptom of their mental disorder is Bush Derangement Syntdrome).
Martha Coakley could have said thar MLK was a great man and Brown would have criticized that.
As usual, all the republicans can do is complain and point fingers.
Heaven forbid they would have any acceptable, workable, responsible ideas.
No decency, no respect - instead, bribery, lies, and corruption!
Martha Coakley would sell her soul to the devil to keep a government retirement going. Maybe she should concentrate on spelling Massachusetts or knowing who Curt Schilling is before she is so pompous.
Typical Liberal hack. Coakley isn't fit for the position.
What would you really expect from Coakley?
Did you expect her to not break the rules.
