A SEAL vs. the Machine


Recommended Posts

a_seal_vs_the_machine.htmlAmerican Thinker:

Gabriel Gomez, the Republican nominee for the Senate in Massachusetts, will be facing off against the Democratic nominee, Congressman Ed Markey in the June 25th special election. Gomez is a former SEAL Lieutenant, who served from 1991 to 1996.

As evidenced by his new ad, Markey is obviously running scared, currently only four percentage points ahead of Gomez. The ad has Gomez and Bin Laden side by side and talks about how a group of former national security and military figures "shamelessly" called out the president for linking classified information for political purposes. The ad atrociously links Gomez with the terrorist and implies his comments were unpatriotic. The Democratic tactics are obviously designed to distract attention from both the congressman's and the Obama Administration's record on terrorism. American Thinker had the pleasure of interviewing Gabriel Gomez to contrast his views with the congressman, including how this ad and Markey's victory comments show hypocrisy and distortion.

During his fifteen-minute victory speech, Markey basically takes a page from the Liberal handbook. He spoke about his desire to overturn Citizens United, a Supreme Court case allowing unlimited political spending, and protecting entitlement programs; although he does not mention how he will do it. He talks about his record on gun control, stating, "We need to make the NRA (National Rifle Association) stand for Not Relevant Anymore," and listed climate change as one of the most important issues facing America today.Scissors-32x32.png
