The punches land as the narrator lists the groups of people West has supposedly wronged.
West said the ad reflects a "sad state of politics" in the country.
"The ad being run against me by my opponent's family depicting violence against women and senior citizens is reprehensible," West said. "It plays on stereotypes and fear to divide Americans, and it cheapens the very real and tragic occurrences of violence against women and seniors. The American people are suffering from crushing debt, horrific tax and regulatory policies, and epic unemployment. This classless ad shows a lack of regard for the issues plaguing our nation."
American Sunrise PAC, which ran the ad, is largely funded by Thomas Murphy Jr., the father of Democratic candidate Patrick Murphy. The elder Murphy contributed the lion's share -- $250,000 -- of donations to the PAC, which only exists to support Patrick Murphy in his bid for the Democratic nomination...

Oh honey, you don’t know the half of it.
According to certain FReepers, Reagan was a RINO: he raised taxes, granted amnesty to illegals, and cut and ran from Lebanon, so HE’S JUST NOT GOOD ENOUGH.
According to certain FReepers, Jesus of Nazareth was a RINO: he advocated paying your taxes, and consorted with tax collectors and prostitutes, so HE’S JUST NOT GOOD ENOUGH.
All through the primary battle, conservative candidates were destroyed one by one: Cain, Bachman, Santorum, Gingrich, because THEY JUST WEREN’T GOOD ENOUGH.
I am convinced that conservatism is in its death throes from self-inflicted wounds.
Well, Berdie, I read it, and it seems a real vanilla statement. Certainly not enough to expunge his original words.
Be careful with that hate.....hate the darkness their lost in, but, be ready to offer them light when they start questioning.
I have seen the trashing of conservative candidates during the primary and you’re right. None of them are conservative enough.
We’re in a world of hurt.
Thanks for taking the time to read it, Sarge. I’m pretty clumsy at posting links. :)
I agree, it wasn’t very strongly worded. Although I like West, I try to keep in mind he IS a politician.
I think, as I have already said, my biggest disappointment in him was that he jumped into the “media assasination” far too easily.
