MA media implies Baker’s tears seemed “fishy”

( – promoted by Rob “EaBo Clipper” Eno)

Republican Gubernatorial Candidate Charlie Baker’s emotion filled account of a conversation he had with a New Bedford fisherman in 2009, during a televised debate last week, is raising eyebrows according to front page stories this week in both the New Bedford Standard Times and the Boston Globe.

It’s obvious the editorial board of the Standard Times went out on a limb with their endorsement of the progressive Republican, Baker, over the Democrat Gubernatorial candidate, Martha Coakley, and now they are looking for a way to squirm out of their decision. Baker’s attempt to bring New Bedford into the debate, may have given the radical socialists at the Standard Times the opportunity they were looking for.

In the article  entitled “Questions raised about Baker’s story”, the veracity of his account of a conversation with a fisherman was challenged.

During the televised debate when Baker was asked when he cried last he recalled weeping recently over a story he heard in 2009 about a fisherman  who told him at a campaign event  that he had ruined the lives of his two sons, who were football stars at New Bedford High School by forcing them to turn down football scholarships to work for their father in New Englands’ dying fishing industry, thanks to Democrat environmental wackos that have imposed insane restrictions on American commercial fishermen. .  

“But in New Bedford on Wednesday those familiar with the port and New Bedford High football said the story didn’t ring any bells”, the article stated.

“No one comes to mind that I can think of said Jim Kendall, president of New Bedford Seafood Consulting”

Kendall goes on to say: ” I’ve gotten several calls on this, texts and emails, too…I’ve checked around, and no one seems to be able to put a finger on who it would be”

The writer failed to point out that Kendal is a long time Democrat political supporter of former Congressman Barney Frank, who has a history of attacking Republicans when they express  opinions about the demise of the New England fishing Industry as Kendal did in 2010 in response to a letter I wrote to the editor of the same newspaper, in which I quoted Republican candidate for Congress Earl Sholley, who  simply implied the government should back off and let New Bedford Fisherman  fish.

    But God forbid they question Elizabeth Warren’s story about being an Indian due to her high cheekbones..

    Think about it for a minute…  Charlie Baker tells a story of meeting a fisherman with two sons who got scholarships to college, but the father wants the kids to follow in his footsteps and regrets the idea he may have held his sons back in life.  It doesn’t seem like a far fetched story.  I have no doubt the people exist and the story is factually true.  Yet the media will crawl up Baker’s ass to get to raise any bit of doubt.

    On the other hand, a lily-white Harvard Professor who got a job so Harvard could fill a quota of hiring minorities – especially native American minorities, never once does the media question the fact that the only proof she had was a quote from her grandmother about having high cheekbones, and a recipe in a book titled ‘Pow Wow Chow’….  Nothing to see here folks….  Go back to sleep…  

  • When Martha Coakley was questioned in the debate about when she last shed tears, she replied she had cried earlier that day at the funeral of a union leader. I haven’t heard a peep from the press about whether that was true or not, such as confirmation from someone who attended the funeral with Coakley and who witnessed the tears. If you’re going to shed suspicion on Baker’s answer then shouldn’t you verify his opponent’s answer to the same question.

  • The media is slow to give up on the theme of Yes, Together, We Can Hope and Change.  They don’t want the story to end with a businessman having to come in and clean up the mess.      

    On Sunday, the Boston Globe reported that Coakley wanted to turn a blind eye to allegations of bribery involving the speaker of the house.  They buried it in a puff piece about Coakley’s work as attorney general.  It didn’t become big news until the Coakley campaign accused the former inspector general of being liar and a tool of the Koch brothers, and he was forced to defend his honor. Old news.  

    On Monday and Tuesday, Coakley falsely claimed she prosecuted a member of Speaker DiMasi’s inner circle and put a second member in jail. Nothing to see here.  

    Coakley stood by while one public official after another committed crimes, while the US Attorney took the lead role in investigation of public corruption in the state. She stood by while the department of public health mismanaged the crime lab and allowed a chemist to fabricate thousands of drug test results. She defended the department of family and children, which lost track of children in dire need of help.  Been there, done that.

    A brief conversation with a stranger five years ago?  Now that’s a story!

    Martha spent all day in New Bedford yesterday, looking for the fisherman.  If only she had looks so hard for evidence against Sal DiMasi, she might have been able to get a conviction.      

  • of stupid question is that anyway?  “When was the last time you cried?”……..WHO GIVES A FLIIPPIN RAT SCREW???!!!

    It is wholly irrelevant stank sauce…nothing more.  A sideshow.

    Last time I cred was 12 years ago……and……?
