From the Akron Beacon Journal:
The words “What primary?” never came out of U.S. Rep. Sherrod Brown’s mouth on Monday, but the message was the same.
Brown also kept up the flip flopper argument on Hackett:
The only time Brown mentioned his opponent in the May 2 Democratic Primary — Iraq War veteran and Cincinnati attorney Paul Hackett — was when someone asked Brown to explain the differences between them.
“I don’t know much about the differences in our positions except about the Iraq war. His evolved into a position pretty similar to mine now, but was more supportive of the war in his congressional race earlier in the year. Other than that, I don’t really know his position on issues because he hasn’t been very specific,” Brown said, noting his consistent opposition to the war.
OK, Sherrod. Let’s play make a deal. I’ll not mention your “evolving position” on whether or not to run for Senate if you drop this dumbass argument against Hackett’s Iraq war position. We’ve all evolved our damned position…it’s called being thoughtful. Nuanced even. Did most of us left leaners not want the Iraq war? You bet. Did some of us support it for a time because we were misled? Yup. Have we now changed our position over time to reflect the current reality? Uh-huh. So lay off this and I’ll lay off your shifting position on whether or not to take on DeWine in the first damned place. Deal?
…Oh, and tell your boy Sirota to do the same.
