Rand Paul Is Launching A New Ad Campaign To Help Todd Akin (Mo Senate Race on fire for Akin)
Business Insider ^ | 10/15/12 | Grace Wyler

Posted on 10/16/2012 4:55:22 AM PDT by Evil Slayer

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is wading into the nation's most incendiary Senate race this week, with the launch of a new statewide, six-figure ad campaign to help Missouri Republican Todd Akin.

Business Insider has learned that Paul's political action committee, RANDPAC, will go on air Wednesday with a new ad attacking Akin's opponent, Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill, for her vote against Paul's amendment to block U.S. aid to Pakistan, Egypt, and Libya.

"Claire McCaskill works with Barack Obama to send our money overseas to radicals who attack our embassies, burn our flag, and kill our diplomats," the narrator says. "What would you do? It's time to bring our taxpayer dollars home and send Claire McCaskill home, too."

Although the ad does not mention Akin by name, it represents Paul's strongest public endorsement of the embattled Missouri Republican, who became persona non grata with the Republican Establishment after his mid-summer gaffe suggesting that women could not get pregnant from "legitimate rape."

In the wake of those comments, GOP leaders abandoned Akin en masse, pulling funding for his campaign and calling on him to step aside in his race to unseat McCaskill. But Akin has held on in the polls, framing his race as a grassroots fight against the GOP Establishment. A new poll from the Republican firm Wenzel Strategies shows Akin leading McCaskill by four points, 49 percent to 45 percent.

Now Paul joins South Carolina Senator and fellow Tea Party favorite Jim DeMint in breaking with Republican leadership and coming out to materially support Akin. Paul appears to be the only sitting Senator to have put up ads supporting Akin's campaign.

And Akin publicly retracted his erroneous opine, which should have been the end of the story.

I hope Todd gives his rival an “Akin’” head.

Very good. Is it possible the GOP is clandestinely funding Akin, using people like Rand Paul and others as surrogates? That would be an acceptable strategy to me in order to insulate Romney, yet gain the Senate seat.

Rand Paul, a conservative (i.e. real republican) helps republicans and goes after democrats (see his ads against Nelson, etc) while Lindsay Graham, a moderate republican (i.e. democrat) and his buddies goes after Akin and defends democrats.

We see the divide.

>>Last week, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham defended the vote against Paul's amendment on a conference call hosted by West Virginia's Democratic Senator Joe Manchin, who has also been targeted by Paul's ads.

When President Romney is sworn in, and the Republican Congress is seated, our real work will begin. Every Freeper must become a modern day pen-pal with his congressional delegation. If we do not keep the heat on them to repeal Obamacare, reform the administrative state and deal with overspending, they will slip back into the rino comfort zone. Our republic cannot survive without drastic actions.

Cowardly politics at its best. They say they won’t do anything to help Akin, they can’t be seen to be doing anything to help, but they still get the credit.

I don’t place much faith in a party that embraces deception of the electorate (even if that is acceptable to you). I want a party stands up for its beliefs and stands by its people.

I believe you have to play the hand your dealt. Some important demographic groups Romney needs to win over would not smile upon his overt support of Akin. I appreciate and admire your purist perspective, but we need to be like our enemies and play to win.

I agree and I want Akin to win. We all know that the MSM was not going to let his statement go away so that is why I initially wanted him to drop out -- this election is critical and someone else would have had a better chance. But he stayed in and I certainly want him over Obamacare Claire.

In 2 years, Rand Paul has become a national figure and is now exerting influence around the country. The whole Marco Rubio thing has bugged me, because he's acomplished neither. Did Rand Paul speak at the convention?

RINO's need to be removed from control of this Party or it will be replaced. Romney wasn't the RINO's first choice, but he still was their choice. But Romney is going to have to stand with the Tea Party base or his support will evaporate.

BS. What about the over 200,000 GOP voters who supported Akin during the primary? What about the pro-life and religious groups?

This begs the question. Romney and Ryan should never have asked Akin to withdraw nor should the RNC been involved. Akin apologized within 24 hours. The proper response from Romney/Ryan and the RNC was that they didn't condone Akin's remarks, accepted his apology, and that we should move on to address the concerns of Missouri voters including the repeal of Obamacare and growing the economy for more jobs.

ES:) the best of the best support Akin. Newt, DeMint, Rand and etc. The timing of this ad is perfect. Many will be watching the debates and baseball play offs..I hope Scare McCackles poll numbers take a major dive.

Akin voted to repeal Obamacare 30 times; Akin against the Wall St. Bailout; Akin supports a balanced budget ammendment; Akin voted against cash for clunkers.

There is a stark contrast between a courageous conservative and a full blown left wing radical that has voted with Obama 98% of the time. I respect Congressman Akin for bucking the establishment.

Lucas Case also worked on Blunt’s campaign and Blunt was among the first to call for Akin to step down. Later, Blunt retracted and endorsed Akin but he is not doing anything to help with the campaign and still appears reluctant.
Something stinks behind the scenes.

Good catch, katie-d.

What a surprise - turns out the infallible Sarah Barracuda's hand-picked endorsee, our own home-grown GOP-e rising star, the dim-witted Sarah Steelman, is having her strings pulled by an organization that actually promotes MO Dims. I'm sooo shocked...NOT!

Uncle Chip nailed it: there's a reason MO voters totally rejected the idiot Steelman and the bought-and-paid-for Bruner in favor of Mr. Akin, and it had nothing to do with McCaskill's stupid ads before the primary.

We're not known as the Show Me State for nothing...though the only bitter taste in my mouth is from our fellow FReepers who refused to toss away their sacred cow baloney and snap judgements in order to listen to those of us here at ground zero who know this honorable man.

OK - also a little bitter at the NRSC and other establishment types that turned their back on Missouri conservatives in order to extract revenge on Todd for daring to defy the great and powerful Booosh when he was buying entitlements for the weak-minded with auto bailouts and Medicare prescription give-aways.

OH and liberty_lvr, there is MORE...Lucas was the head of the Branson Tea Party.
Agree on the fellow freepers who fell for the media hype without really looking at Akin’s record. Always said the media is a 3rd political party but never dreamed the republicans via Rove and Fox would turn on a conservative like Akin. That was the icing on the cake. Coulter, Rove, Priebus..they surely knew what kind of man Akin is..so why did they toss him to the wolves?

Coulter, Rove, Priebus..they surely knew what kind of man Akin is..so why did they toss him to the wolves?

That's easy - because he was seen as an enemy of the GOP (aka The Stupid Party) and a true champion of conservative values. The GOP (or any political party for that matter) is not about principle, never has been. It's about furthering the ambitions politically of those who run the party apparatus.

Sometimes principled politicians come along, like Ronald Reagan, who "use" the party apparatus to further their own ideological ambitions. The party still benefits, assuming the politician is considered a successful and popular one, so the politician can survive within the party structure.

Most of the time, like with Todd, the party uses participants in the process to further it's own agenda - and all those players think they should be the one setting that agenda. A principled man like Akin must at some point run counter to the party's agenda and therefore will be jettisoned in the interest of the organization. In the end the party operates only to further its own existence.

This is a good example of why the Tea Party should be viewed with a healthy skepticism - at the grass-roots, everyday-folks level, it is an example of the resurgence of a conservative voice. But those who willingly jump into the leadership roles of the burgeoning movement are usually those who can't gain traction within the traditional party system and are looking for another way to amass power and influence for themselves - many times only so they can ingratiate themselves to those traditional party types that initially rejected them. Enter our friend Mr. Lucas.

You're right, something is rotten at the core of this - but it's a stench we have smelled many times before: the raw pursuit of power and influence through deceit and treachery. Go back and read your Shakespeare, he was great at describing this particular human failing. :-)

Did somemore digging and found out that Case is not a member of the Branson Tea Party ....My mistake. Case did work for Steelman and she was Tea Party but she got rid of him; he also worked for Blunt and for GOP strategist David Barklage. I thought Case was active in the Branson Tea Party because Palin was led to believe that Steelman was the TP darling and Case is a performer in Branson.
Case has a photo of Steelman on his fb page and he was very active in the republican party.

But the reality of course is that it had pretty much had everything to do with it...also helped by the US Chamber running attack ads on Steelman for her connection to the trial lawyers.

OK - also a little bitter at the NRSC and other establishment types that turned their back on Missouri conservatives in order to extract revenge on Todd for daring to defy the great and powerful Booosh when he was buying entitlements for the weak-minded with auto bailouts and Medicare prescription give-aways.

No, it was because he made a pretty outrageous, botched remark about women who get raped - way beyond a simple gaffe and about an extraordinarily senstive subject - that was dragging down the entire national Republican ticket - made to order for the Democrats to validate their phony "War on Women" dialog. That's why that happened. He is personally responsible for that. Unless you have some hard evidence the NRSC, etc. hypnotized him to do that, they have absolutely no responsibility whatsoever for that media firestorm he - and he alone - sparked, and it is ridiculous for anyone to claim otherwise.

Anyway, this is about what I figured would happen - you would see these other committees and PACs spring up from the background to take the place of the NRSC so that the media could not have a chance to make a national story out of it all over again to try to drag down the whole ticket. This could end up being helpful overall as current GOP seats are more vulnerable than expected (such as Indiana) where the NRSC has been having to spend a lot of money to help Mourdock (right - Mourdock - if they were against conservatives by default as they reason they bailed on Akin, why would they be spending so much to help the guy who ousted Lugar?)

Blunt voted for the Freddie mac and Fannie mae bailouts. He has been a big disappointment. It appears as if the voting record of republicans matters LESS than a 6 second gaffe.
Other candidates have made some major gaffes and the National Republican Party stood behind them. I won't ever forgive Rove, Priebus and gang for what they did to Akin.

Sorry defending the NRSC or Rove, Priebus does not fly. There have been numerous racial, sexual and other gaffes by prominent republicans that have never stopped the gop establishment from endorsing them. Here are just a few.

Haley Barbour trashed Akin and yet he has made some racial comments that were not favorable to the GOP. This is just one of many.

Barbour Reprimanded His Campaign Aide For Using A Racist Remark At A Campaign Event By Warning Him That If He “Persisted In Racist Remarks, He Would Be Reincarnated As A Watermelon And Placed At The Mercy Of Blacks.”

George W. Bush and one of many gaffes... "Too many good docs are getting out of the business. Too many OB-GYNs aren't able to practice their love with women all across this country." --Poplar Bluff, Mo., Sept. 6, 2004 (Watch video clip)

Scott Brown is another one critical of Akin but this is absolutely absurd and he repeated it more than once.

Brown recently said in a radio interview that he had "secret meetings with kings and queens and prime ministers and business leaders and military leaders" every day. His office later issued a clarification saying that he "misspoke" when he referenced "kings and queens."

Two of many gaffes by McCain and regarding women..did anyone in the National Republican Party with hold funds for his campaign?

"Do you know why Chelsea Clinton is so ugly? Because Janet Reno is her father." --at a 1998 Republican fundraiser

"Did you hear the one about the woman who is attacked on the street by a gorilla, beaten senseless, raped repeatedly and left to die? When she finally regains consciousness and tries to speak, her doctor leans over to hear her sigh contently and to feebly ask, 'Where is that marvelous ape?'" --a joke McCain reportedly told during his first Senate race in 1986

Hey, I just heard Todd Akin's new commercial that Rand Paul must have helped him with.

It is AWESOME ... AWESOME.

If someone can get a copy of it -- post it.

After this commercial runs its course, he should be up by even more points and Claire will be digging deeper into her lock box for some more futile ideas.

I think more and more she is looking at her $12 million campaign money box as her going away present.

I for one would certainly hope not. If that is the case then that would likely leave Akin beholding to the corrupt Republican Party insiders should he win. America would be better served if Akin is free to represent the (conservative) people of America and not the liberal inside the Washington rusted-beltway RNC insiders, IMHO.

Sorry, I disagree with you and I disagree with the way the Republican Party handled it. I mean they created a map of every candidate running and in MO...the NRSC only listed McCaskill. It was if she was running unopposed.
Akin apologized and it was Akin and Ryan that wrote a pro life legislation. The GOP did not turn its back on Rove or refuse his assistance after his murder comment. Granted he is not running for office but he is prominent in the gop
Also, I stand by my assertion that numerous and horrific gaffes have been made by other candidates that rate pretty high up there.

I agree on the credibility..it is either McCaskill or Akin and we know what a mistake 6 yrs of Claire McCaskill who voted with Obama 98% of the time means. It is the fault of the rinos that hold a grudge against Akin for bucking Bush and them.
