Jeanne Shaheen is taking heat for her Scott Brown border crossing quip in their last debate.  But not (IMHO) for the right reasons. Shaheen quipped “we sort of let this guy [her Republican opponent Scott Brown] sneak over the southern border. You’ve probably noticed that we’ve been debating border security a little bit in this […]

Thanks to Shaheen and Shea-Porter – healthcare is now UNaffordable!

by Kimberly Morin October 28, 2014

I’m one of those people who has had health insurance for the majority of my life.  I’m an insurance-type person.  I’m one of those people who believe in being covered for the ‘what ifs’.  Heck I even have pet insurance for my bulldogs! Even on older vehicles I get the maximum coverage of insurance and I […]

We’ve all been reminding voters that NH Senator  Jeanne Shaheen campaigned as a non-partisan choice for New Hampshire in 2008.  The observant among us saw that for the nonsense that it was, but she got elected anyway. Now, six years later, the not-so-partisan-Jeanne-Shaheen has a problem.  She drew her own red line.  The line at […]

The Shaheen’s are HUGE Clinton family values fans.  They were all-in for Hillary in 2008 when Clinton Campaign co-chair Bill “We vote like a village”  Shaheen took a hit for the party by making generalizations about Barack Obama and his relationship with illegal drugs.  (Racist of him, right?) And now Hillary (Mrs. Bill “Hide he […]

by Skip October 23, 2014

Look, as any regular ‘Grok reader knows, we are not enamored with Scott Brown but as you just saw with my bumping of our Walt Havenstein posts on Expanded Medicaid, we don’t care WHO you are and WHICH Party you are in – lie to us (the electorate) and we (the ‘Grok) will call you on it.  […]

I don’t follow my twitter feed much at night but I happened on it this evening and the Twitterverse (NH Edition) is all over the debates.  Guinta and Shea-Porter, Shaheen and Brown, there’s even residue from Kuster and Garcia.  (Annie is mean!) I’m not a reporter nor a campaign operative so I can happily lean […]

Jeanne Shaheen’s political legacy will be built on making health care more expensive and more difficult to get.  What she did to New Hampshire was bad enough.  But then Democrats sent to her Washington so she could double down on failure.  Aaaannnnd She did.

Not that long ago, when given the opportunity to keep hundreds of millions of dollars annually from leaving New Hampshire, Jeanne Shaheen, Barack Obama’s Senate envoy to New Hampshire, voted to back the plundering pirates from Washington over state and local control…of transportation dollars. Which party is it that demands a steady increase in taxpayer-tithing […]

From yesterday’s morning’s GrokTALK! – readings from the blogosphere Part 3

by Skip October 19, 2014

We’ve talked / blogged that we at GraniteGrok keep getting yelled at for not being behind the NH GOP push for Scott Brown.  Look, we just don’t think that he’s the right Republican guy for the job simply because he’s wishy-washy on OUR important issues – and those are not fringe ones but main stream […]

Washington Free Beacon In Montana, Senator John Walsh bowed out after he was exposed as a plagiarist. His replacement: avowed “punktuator” and socialist Amanda Curtis. In Kentucky, Alison Lundergan Grimes won’t reveal her presidential vote, citing—I am not making this up—the constitutional right to privacy (maybe what she had in mind was her Fifth Amendment […]

Thumbnail image for Shaheen’s Private Sector Experience Imitates Her Political Experience

Jeanne Shaheen’s entire political career stands on the idea of using government to rob people so she can benefit “professionally’ so this kind of makes sense. Throughout her political career, including during her current race against former GOP Sen. Scott Brown, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D., N.H.) has touted her experience as a small business owner. […]

Just replace ‘Bruce Braley’ With Jeanne Shaheen, and Iowa, with New Hampshire, and the ad works just as well here. Steyer has spent over 3 million in third party ads to help  Jeanne Shaheen (reported so far).  I expect that sum is much larger given the frequency of internet ads I see from his PAC […]

I missed the part of Obama’s first inauguration speech where he said “this was the moment, when being seen with a Democrat president could be a death knell to your campaign for the US Senate.”   Jeanne Shaheen clearly heard it.  “Well, the president is dealing with a lot of crises in the world right now.

Dear Candidates: STOP treating women as if we are nothing but talking vaginas!!!!!

by Kimberly Morin October 8, 2014

Unless you’ve been holed up in a cave and not paying attention to the elections coming up, you will have noticed that Democrats in New Hampshire – Shaheen, Shea-Porter, Kuster and Hassan – believe women are nothing more than talking vaginas.  Apparently to these ‘women’, the only thing female voters care about has to do […]

It’s just a fetus, right?  Right Democrats?  A wart in the womb.  It doesn’t have rights.  It isn’t a person.  That’s what you claim.  It is nothing of consequence. I mention this because the Shaheen campaign is challenging then Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown for his support of an informed consent bill in 2005 that could […]

It may not be a well known maxim in New Hampshire but when Jeanne Shaheen was governor she liked to rule by committee.  Blue ribbon, fact finding, you name it – she’d call for a committee to investigate whatever her progressive mind thought ailed us.  (Progressive minds think everything ails us, and that they are […]
