I’ve been meaning to send an update on the contest for the 4th Congressional District of Massachusetts, where my good friend, Sean Bielat, is running against an empty suit representing the Kennedy clan. Below, I’ve posted two segments of a video that the Kennedy nepotists don’t want anyone to see.
I just hope the good citizens of the 4th Congressional District realize that a vote against Joseph P. Kennedy III is a vote against nepotism, because Kennedy’s performance in these segments makes it fairly obvious that nepotism is the only reason he’s in this race.
Nepotism is the wrong word. That’s usually inside hiring. Using connections and name recognition in politics is different. Yeah, George W. Bush would have never become Governor of Texas (or Pres) without being the son of George H.W. Bush, but it wasn’t nepotism. That’s the wrong word. I have heard lots of good things about Kennedy. Are you sure you’re not letting bias creep in there?
I actually think George W. Bush’s rise to power was also nepotism. If he weren’t a Bush, he would never have been president. The fact that the Democratic Party is letting this clown run when it likely has far more experienced candidates is a clear case of nepotism. He’s getting an unfair advantage simply because of his family name. You’ll see it when you watch the debate.
Same for Clinton, Jeb Bush, even Al Gore. The list is long. But my complaint isn’t about the charge that it’s wrong that we get dynasties, only whether nepotism is the right word. Nepotism is “favoritism based on kinship.”. Here people who are not kin have to vote – I’m not sure a Kennedy had a role in getting him to where he is. So my disagreement is merely semantic, is ‘nepotism’ the right word.
As a citizen in the 6th district, I agree with your assessment of “an empty suit” and see him even less qualified for the U.S. Senate that was Barak [vote present only] H. Obama. But the fact that an empty suit can make it to the White House should scare every rationally thinking voter to show up at the polls and vote against this new trend of voting for expected handouts and vote for changing the course of government in order to keep what few freedoms are left in America.
Agreed. I already voted.
You’ve voted and I’ll do the same tomorrow hoping to push Tisei through and get Scott Brown over the professor, Fauxcahontas Warren.
