This is such an egregious, phony, misleading hollow argument, I suspect you WORK for Jen Benson!<quoted text>
Your first sentence makes it sound like you are undecided but you tip your hand when you use phrases like "typical Democrat" and "salute when the leadership tells her". That is all partisan messaging and you are obviously already a Hayes supporter.
As for Rep. Benson's expressions, they both expressed their reactions to the other's answers and rebuttals. It was not one-sided as you seem to imagine.(Yes, I was there too). The candidates' reactions were not "fourth-grader-ish" as you suggest, but normal reactions that anyone might have in such a scenario.
Lastly, Mr. Hayes' platform may be nice for people to hear (lower taxes, more jobs) but ALL candidates say that. Words are cheap. The problem is he has absolutely no public track record of ever DOING any of that. His accomplishments in IBM, whatever they might be, are not known to anyone but himself and his colleagues. We do not even know if he is a good employee.(And, no, longevity at a company is no indication... we all know people who have been in jobs for many years that do not perform!)
Bottom line: it is IMPOSSIBLE to know how he would function in any municipal arena, let alone the State House. All we have are his words, but actions speak louder....and he doesn't have any to back him up. Sorry.
No ordinary voter would make such obviously misleading statements about how a candidate has time to do this job!
Do you REALLY believe voters are THAT stupid? That they will buy into your mis leading statements about Kurt Hayes and what he does and how he can do it.?
Perhaps you are the part of the Democratic party like John Kerry that believes voters are ignorant and stupid?
Based on that I have to point out some facts about Jen Benson! For example did you know, or would you like voters to know that her husband is a Homo sapien! I wonder how many voters are bothered by that. Did you also know that they ? Did YOU know that, BOTH are very likely in a Monogamous relationship with each other? Ask her, I bet anything she would not deny it!
I wonder if this revelation is going to change any voters minds out there?
Sometimes you just have to say things and reveal things about a person so that, smart informed voters really understand a candidate and make good informed voting decisions!
And while we’re about it lets not forget where the Massachusetts house leaders are who Jen first obeyed and reported to and obligingly did what she was told to do?
