Posted on 04/11/2013 12:21:03 AM PDT by nickcarraway
New York mayor Michael Bloombergs anti-gun group announced Wednesday that it will stop running a negative television ad targeting Sen. Pat Toomey now that the Pennsylvania Republican has signed on to a proposal to expand background checks to gun show and online firearms purchases.
Mayors Against Illegal Guns had been hammering Toomey, a junior senator with an A rating from the National Rifle Association, with negative ads in Keystone State. But his latest proposal, which he is co-sponsoring with West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin, has Bloomberg and company singing a different tune.
The coalitions initial negative ad featured an urgent-voiced narrator who said, Tell Senator Toomey, dont protect criminals
Demand action now, and displayed Toomeys office phone number. Now the coalition is running a positive ad praising Toomey.

He and Bloomy will soon announce their engagement
by harassing law abiding citizens?
The republic has committed suicide by electing feckless toads like Comrade Toomey.
Bloomburg,, running ads complimenting Toomey. LOL THAT’LL help him.
You’ve got it backwards Toomey helps Bloomberg.
After all this Gun Control and Illegal Alien Amnesty.....if you still are voting GOP .....you aren’t conservative.
Keep watching, Toomey will be on Obama’s Facebook page any minute now.
Treason does have its rewards!
I would think this pretty well kills the GOP. I don’t know just who they think is gonna vote for them after this.
I have such a deep level of hate and mistrust for people like Bloomberg, that he could tell me my hair is on fire and I would not believe him.
Bloomberg’s power and money are being used all over this country to elect more liberal candidates. He IS the most dangerous man this country has at this moment. As for Toomey, it just showed his stripes and lack of backbone in standing his ground for fear of the Bloomberg negative ad attack.
Who will they come after next? By the time they are through, no one will be safe.
Bloomberg is evil. Most politicians are evil.
This bill is the third-party trip wire people have been either waiting for or dreading. Pat Toomey has blundered his way into becoming the poster boy for the end of the charade as we know it, but there are so many other weak links in the GOP chain that it couldn't even support its own weight anymore with or without his fecklessness. Why in the F*** anyone in the GOP so much as hinted a lack of support for a filibuster is proof to me that they sat down at the table with the intent to throw their cards away no matter what hand they were dealt.
If someone like Rand Paul or Ted Cruz walks away from the Republican party and immediately makes his case eloquently and succinctly, the dilapidated old GOP tent is going to empty out very fast; in their hearts, an enormous number of people will be only too glad to dump baggage the like John McCain and the rest of the corrupt bastards clubbers. We icky flyover tea party types embarass them? I've got a news flash news for the GOP-e that isn't agitprop, push-polling boilerplate from OFA: we DESPISE you.
Unfortunately, the Whig-ification of the GOP will leave the whole bag to the Communists, but to the victors go the spoils, and the Pat Toomeys of the world are never victors.
Mayor Bloomturd is such an obnoxious little man.
Nanny State PING!
Youve got it backwards Toomey helps Bloomberg.
Is there a difference? Don't fascisti normally stand together?
Thanks for the ping!
People will simply hide their guns and keep a low profile.
LOL. Parliament of Whores. I HAVE that book. SOme of us go back a ways, I guess...
