Skip to comments.Harry Reid plan: 'Vaporize' 2010 GOP opponent
Posted on 10/20/2009 12:45:15 PM PDT by pissant
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is prepared to run a sharply negative campaign if thats what it takes to win reelection next year, with a top adviser predicting that the Nevada Democrat will vaporize his Republican challengers with attack ads.
Trailing in the polls and under constant attack from the GOP, Reids campaign has just launched a warm-and-fuzzy million-dollar ad campaign to reintroduce the veteran senator to his constituents. But Reids team also wants to be the one that introduces lesser-known opponents to the electorate and will be ready, when the time comes, to unleash a torrent of ads branding challengers as untested and unprepared for the job.
Now in the campaigns sites: Sue Lowden, a wealthy gaming executive, former state senator and former chairwoman of the Nevada Republican Party, and Danny Tarkanian, a Las Vegas businessman and the son of legendary basketball coach Jerry Tarkanian.
I expect him to vaporize Lowden or Tarkanian or whoever is the opponent, said a Reid adviser, speaking on the condition of anonymity in order to discuss campaign strategy.

If the GOP can't beat this incompetent POS, they might as well hang up the cleats and go home.
I’ll bet the Republican challengers are quaking in their boots...
Lose they will, if the GOP again listens to media warnings against “going negative” while the democrats pull out all the stops.
I’d like to see the woman run. Not that it would be a cakewalk for either, but women are going to tend to have fewer skeletons in their closets, so to speak, and having some nasty personal scandal just waiting for Reid’s henchmen to discover is probably the best way to ensure he gets an easy win.
Hope the Rs are smart enough to vet any challenger carefully because you know there’s nothing more dangerous than a snake that’s cornered, and that’s dingy harry...
“...I think he will do anything to win, Jon Ralston, an influential Nevada political analyst, said of Reids 2010 campaign. To be fair, I think hell do anything legal to win....”
Don’t bet on the “legal” part. Reid only knows how to do three things, LIE, CHEAT AND STEAL!
"I'll vaporize 'im!"
>> Lose they will, if the GOP again listens to media warnings against going negative while the democrats pull out all the stops.
The GOP needs to run a “scorched earth” campaign in ‘10. Utterly destroy as many ‘Rats as possible with the fire and brimstone of truth.
Lord knows they have enough ammunition. But it’s likely they don’t have brains or balls enough to use it.
How about a conservative, for a change, regardless of gender or ethnicity. We’ve got a Senate full of RINOs already. Need some more backbone to help bolster the DeMint, Sessions and Inhofe wing, that is constantly swimming upstream.
Vaporize? What’s Reid going to do - fart at his opponent?
Ewww are they shakingin their boots???? That’s what that headline is intended to do!
The economy in Nevada is going to be very poor next Fall and that will help the GOP a lot, but we still need to get after Dinghy Harry and tie him to Pelosi and BHO as much as possible. I think he definitely can be beaten in a tough, close election.
lol...dinghy Harry’s going to lose in the same way Daschle lost in South Dakota.
They better be careful when they start their cars...
Creigh Deeds has been trying out this strategy in Virginia. His poll numbers have gone from bad to worse.
So I know someone very very well. He was, for years, the personal bodyguard of a famous casino owner. He says on behalf of his boss, he used to bring Reid envelopes of cash every now and then.
Reid’s been running TV here in Las Vegas for months now....as well as radio....he’s got $$$$$........have yet to see or hear anything from Lowden or Tarkanian.
Well, Hello there Dingy!!!
If Lowden or Tarkanian can poll well against Reid next summer after the primaries, either one can raise a ton of money from all over America. I know I'm going to contribute to any GOP candidate who has a chance to beat Reid.
The first Dirty Harry Zero Dollar. Here it is (top image is the front, of course, bottom image is the back):
"The Trio" for Obamacare - the new Trio Zero Dollar - is now out for download and passing out to friends (or enemies) or leaving in various places for others to find. Front of the bill is first image.
Here's the POMPOUS HARRY REID bill. Front side first.
For the whole series of
Zero dollar bills, go here:
I think they must have 'misheard' the comment. Harry Reid is going to vaporize instead. He is such a mean, stupid little fart he couldn't vaporize anyone.
The character of the Nevada Senator in “The Godfather Part II” was taken directly from Harry Reid.
Truly, some people are alive only because it is against the law to kill them.
Republicans should start preparing Nevadans NOW for this strategy. A simple ad acknowledging the “warm and Fuzzy” ads with a closing message to the Voters:
As the election nears and Harry Reid finds himself about to lose, what he thinks is a LIFETIME job, prepare yourself for the nastiest, ugliest, attack ads Nevada has ever seen. It is a sure sign that it is time for a politician to go home. When it becomes more about keeping him in power than about serving the best interests of Nevada IT IS TIME FOR HARRY TO GO HOME.
Sounds like the good beginnings of a campaign ad.
Reid is a crook, pure and simple.
So he’s following the Corzine strategy? Obfuscate your own abysmal record and subterranean approval ratings, and spend $30 million on division attack ads?
Classy guy, that Harry Reid.
If there is any justice left in this world, Reid will be unceremoneously kicked out of the senate and on to his ass back in Searchlight, NV.
Why should his campaign differ from any other Democrat campaign?
So Dingy Harry is going to become a homicide bomber?
Or specifically his. LOL
Whatta colossal dirtball who's gonna get his comeuppance real soon, I suspect.
The GOP needs to get after Reid on certain issues but there’s a danger in getting too nasty and using too much dirt against Reid, even though it is the truth. If we run a campaign that is just as nasty and dirty as Reid’s campaign, then we look too much like him and we don’t appeal to Republican and independent voters. Rather than a lot of nasty attacks on Reid, it’s more effective to counter-attack strongly and hit Reid hard for false statements that he makes about his Republican opponent. I think a hard-hitting counter-attack campaign is better than a lot of nasty first attacks on Reid. We want to differentiate GOP candidates from the democRATs and run more positive, upbeat, inspiring campaigns that appeal to business people and professional people. I say we should counter-attack very hard and fast against Reid but don’t run many first attacks against him, just tie him constantly to Pelosi and BHO.
Ny good friend “Old” Bob L. sure got screwed over by dirty Harry in a land deal! I won’t say any more right now. I’ll save my ammo for closer to election time.
Who can post the Harry Reid “Nevada horse crap” painting?
If the GOP is, or remains so, then we truly are screwed.
You mean there's some Dingy Harry artwork floating 'round out there, Welly?
Pray-tell, would love to view this portrait of the bottom feeder supreme! LOL
Ah but it takes an aggressive GOP plan, turnout to overcome a Dem registration advantage. It can be done but it will take the opponent to let the vaporization go over his back and just hit the media outlets, the public, the airwaves with Reid’s socialist pacifist agenda and go out with cheer to take over that seat.
This puke is the poster child for garbage faced commies.
Not sure he is beatable.
Reid is a made man. He is the Vegas mob’s man and regardless of the vote count, Reid will be the winner.
That would make a very nice billboard.
Reid is prepared to run a sharply negative campaign
How to beat Harry Reid:
1. Find where he keeps his coffin.
2. Come there during daylight.
3. Drive stake through heart.
4. Duck and cover for inevitable hurricane wind and breaking glass.
5. Win election by default.
6. Keep .44 Magnum revolver with silver bullets handy, just for backup.
