How do you know when Jeanne Shaheen is panicked? When she’s forced to directly lie about her own record to Granite Staters.
During the debate last night, Scott Brown discussed the importance of nuclear power – mentioning that Senator Shaheen opposed it. An exasperated Shaheen threw her arms in the air and was adamant that she didn’t oppose nuclear power.
It was an odd response, considering her opposition to Seabrook in the mid-1980’s. Don’t take our word for it, take Jeanne Shaheen’s. In 1986, she told UPI that nuclear power “is not a safe way to generate power.” (“Nuclear Power Campaign Issue In New Hampshire,” United Press International, 10/11/86). Here’s Jeanne Shaheen on video in 1987 arguing against nuclear power:
In addition to lying, Senator Shaheen seemed completely unprepared on several topics, most notably on Ebola. Shaheen has been under fire for flip-flopping on a travel ban, but tonight revealed just how unprepared she is on the issue, curiously calling Ebola is a “new” disease. Yet the first documented cases of Ebola occurred in 1976
, when the original “Rocky” was a top box office film. OOPS…
Jeanne Shaheen’s debate performance last night revealed a Senator on the verge of losing her seat, failing to be the strong, independent voice she has promised to be. As Politico reported
, Scott Brown has all the momentum in this race.
