DRUDGE EXCLUSIVE: GOP TO LAUNCH 'WHITE FLAG' DEM ATTACK
The Drudge Report ^ | December 8, 2005 | Matt Drudge

Posted on 12/08/2005 3:46:41 PM PST by new yorker 77

The DRUDGE REPORT has learned from a top GOP operative that the Republican National Committee will provide state parties with a web video prior to release tomorrow afternoon that shows a white flag waving over images of Democrat leaders making anti-war remarks.

The ad is in response to the controversial comments Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean and 2004 Democratic Presidential nominee John Kerry made earlier in the week.

A Democratic strategist who had the web ad described to her said, “This is way over the top but we have no one to blame but Dean, Kerry and others who continue to pander to the anti-war activists within our party.”

The web video advances the Republican contention that the Democrats only have a “retreat and defeat” message on the war in Iraq.

The video highlights the effect Democrats can have on the morale of U.S. soldiers.

One Republican strategist familiar with the ad said, “The Democrats, especially Howard Dean have a way of trying to turn the tables and say ‘that’s not what I meant’ – its just those ‘evil Republicans’ This video will make them crazy – it reinforces what they really believe with what they actually said – and that is devastating for the Democratic Party.”

Glad to see the RNC fighting back and stepping up - However - RNC "web-videos" are silly and not productive - Put them out as TV ads or print ads -

Web-video's on preach to the choir -

Someone with a master's degree in wordsmithing should figure out how to tag the RATS with the Benedict Arnold tag. He surely was a Revolutionary War hero who acted on his envy and feeling of estrangement to betray his country. The theme is the same in both instances.

I'm glad they are finally taking the fight to the enemy, but the timing could be better. It serves little benefit right now, but just before next years elections it could be a big boost.

Awesome! I can't wait to see their heads explode. I'm sure that Howard Dean will be particularly fun to watch. I'm equally sure that he will lead a well-reasoned, logical, and effective response to the ad. You betcha!

Isn't the Kerry family coat of arms; Upon a field, white, Nothing but Surrender?

Lord I hope so! I had to tell someone calling for the RNC that once the party found their cojones that I would be glad to step up my donations.

MIDI - SOUNDS OF SILENCE

Hello patriots, my friends…I have some bad news once again
You won't believe what they've been doing...our great nation they've been screwing

There’s a lesson that we cannot trust Democrats…sewer rats
We hear the sounds of treason

They would sell our country out…of that, you shouldn't have a doubt
They would be abdicating freedom…it’s in writing, you should read ‘em

There’s a lesson that we cannot trust Democrats…sewer rats
We hear the sounds of treason

Hatred of the USA…they are displaying everyday
There's disdain for our Constitution…it is time for retribution

There’s a lesson…we…cannot trust Democrats…sewer rats
We hear the sounds of treason

It is power they must gain...it is a plan that is insane
If one of them cannot be president...they hope that we fail, it's evident

With our defense, we cannot trust Democrats
We hear the sounds of treason

They want rule by the U.N…these guys are very evil men
Their socialism's the ideal…that is the way the lefties feel

There’s a lesson that...we cannot trust Democrats…sewer rats
We hear the sounds of treason

The GOP will never run the ad on TV. The Dems can go on TV and call Bush every name in the book. But call the Dems the anti-American trash they are, and they will kick and scream about how low it is to question their patriotism. The GOP is dead unless they do attack the Dems where it hurts, their total lack of patriotism.
