`Real issues'

June 19th, 2014

U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa is out with a new television advertisement dubbed "Real Issues," which highlights the congresswoman's record as a legislator.

The Hanabusa campaign has sought to portray Hanabusa as the more experienced legislator in her Democratic primary against U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz.

    so true, schatz raised all the money from special interest, hoping he could buy the election, but he has not done anything of note since appointed to the senate. for 2 years he spent campaigning for reelection. we want some who works for the people's interest, not some big corporation who has lots of money. this the same path Abercrombie is taking, getting special interests money and paying him back for all the developments he and his cronies approved. so sad, these power hungry people want to be reelected the easy way, buy your way. you have to prove your worth to get reelected, not just talk. imua, Ige and Hanabusa.

    innocent observer: just to let you know im not a schatz supporter but before you make outlandish comments on schatz please study his record in the senate and the support he has received from his fellow senators in the bills that he has sponsored or co-sponsored and then make your comments on schatz...if you reply to me and say i should tell you what he has done, it shows your ignorance..no, its easy to find his accomplishments and what he has done in the senate in the congressional record or read the newspapers sometimes....as for hanabusa, give me a break...did you ever see her on national tv when she came on bill o'reilly syndicated program...she was an embarrassment as she was talking about the birds when o'reilly was talking about the bees ...in other words, she was not on the topic that o'reilly was on and finally admitted she didn't see his special on hawaii so she was just generalizing on another topic which made her to look like an idiot......cheers.

    Clearly, Innocent Observer, you are much more than an observer and are hardly innocent … not when you put out false and misleading statements. In fact, Brian Schatz has been a big surprise, impressing a number of senior members of the Senate who have stepped up and taken the unusual step of endorsing a fellow Democrat in a primary election … that's how highly thought of Brian Schatz is! If you have a problem with his positions on the issues or with the legislation he has sponsored, fine. But -- please -- don't make sweeping negative statements about this very decent man that are demonstrably untrue. Leave that to Fox News.

    Paul Wilson: Even though I'm not a avid supporter of Schatz, I do believe in objectivity and fairness and your comments reflect my thoughts exactly on the negative comments made by "innocent observer."

    Seems that many look at Japanese as quiet and not aggressive
    in anyway, speaking. Don't sterotype others as being same.
    Japanese are two faced. Smile at you or laugh innocently
    but you turn your back, they will cut you down with their
    sharp glare. Don't take them as mild. O'really is a drama
    queen and gets a hissy fit when it came to ratings.

    schatz has his eyes on bringing the Keystone Pipeline
    to Hawaii. Rail is being built at 5 billion dollars and added
    costs, costing more.

    Hannabusa, Schatz and others running for Senate, will be
    Junior Senators or "Mr. or Mrs. Smith goes to Washington.
    Seen and not heard or they can filibuster and rant for hours,
    talking about Green Eggs and Ham.

    Pass the bacon to Hawaii. Senator Inouye left some
    big shoes to fill and big bills to pay. Rail?

    "Good for Brian! He's right on the issue and he's got the guts to direct his appeal to the rational voters instead of pandering to the crazies."
