Murray blasts ‘deplorable, sexist’ anti-ObamaCare ad
thehill.com ^ | September 20, 2013 | Ramsey Cox

Posted on 09/20/2013 8:11:52 PM PDT by Tailgunner Joe

Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) demanded that Republican House and Senate leaders denounce an anti-ObamaCare ad created by a right-wing group.

Murray called the ad “deplorable and sexist.”

“This ad represents right-wing scare tactics at the most deplorable and sexist level and Republican leaders in the House and Senate should immediately repudiate these tactics and those who stoop to use them,” Murray said Friday. “Not doing so would represent a tacit endorsement of continued lies that are expressly aimed at intimidating women in their most private moments.”

Generation Opportunity, a conservative group funded by the Koch brothers, paid for the ad, titled “The Exam — Creepy Uncle Sam,” which is part of their “Opt-Out” campaign. The ad shows a young woman going to a doctor for her annual physical exam. She tells the doctor she is enrolled in an ObamaCare health exchange and the doctor is replaced by “Creepy Uncle Sam” holding forceps.

“This ad shows the utter disregard the right-wing continues to have for women, their privacy, and their ability to make decisions about their own bodies,” Murray said. “You would think that over the past few years, as conservatives have continually tried to unsuccessfully redefine rape and block VAWA protections for millions of at-risk women, that they would have learned. However, this ad is a reminder that Republicans are ready and willing to employ any means necessary to lie and frighten young women, all for political gain.”

Some conservative Republican Senate candidates got in trouble during the last election cycle for saying abortions should be banned even in the case of rape and incest.

The “Opt-Out” ad also sparked criticism from liberal pro-abortion rights organizations.

“It is hard to tell if this is real or if it’s a ‘Saturday Night Live’ parody about the hypocrisy of extremists who want to be in every exam room in America but don’t want to expand access to quality health care,” said Eric Ferrero of Planned Parenthood.

OK, level it out. The next ad should be a guy in an Obama mask giving a guy a prostate exam.

Do they really thing the bureaucracy is always going to genuflect at the altar of “women’s reproductive rights”? That will keep up only until the next idol comes along, then sorry women you are now under the bus! It took maybe 5 seconds to imagine a scenario where due to constant budget crunch they insist on tracing a woman’s boyfriends to the point of taking DNA swabs (”oh don’t worry it’s not for criminal prosecution of YOU so don’t worry about that 4th amendment”).

LOL! senator Patty Murray is screaming about “sexism”.

Bill Clinton, Anthony Weiner and Jon Corzine know how to shut wenches like Murray up. It involves the favorite Democrat sex position - Murray on her knees, and one of the Demmie Ruler Boyz applying the “shut-up stick”.

Spare the faux drama, Patty.

Patty, however did support the anti-Paul Ryan ad “Through Granny Over the Cliff” (remember http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OGnE83A1Z4U?). Patty, this is hardball season just like you've been playing for a while now.

You have to wonder...this ad is so contrived...would it be a big surprise if it was actually produced and paid for by the Dems...as a gambit to make Republicans look anti-women?

Not to me, it wouldn’t. Republicans need to adopt some of these tactics.

Sad to see Uncle Sam being used that way, when it's really the anti-American left who crafted Obamacare.

In typical fashion, the right will feel the need to apologize for this ad and have it pulled.

Don't worry guys, folks on our side will be falling all over themselves to denounce this ad, and once again portray weakness to the Dems and the rest of the country.

Apology in...1...2...3...

Politics ain't for sissies. We're playing for all the damn marbles. This law will go down, sooner or later, just like prohibition and slavery.

Believe it or not, the group also put out an ad in which Uncle Sam prepares to give a dude a proctological exam.

The First Amendment is racist, sexist and homophobic. Any questions?

Yeah Patty, it’s not like your party would EVER employ ANY untrue "scare tactics", right?

We all know you guys are as pure as the driven snow and always totally honest to the Nth degree.... Right Patty?

We'd all do better to put our ear to a pile of dog $hit than listen to anything she has to say.

Exactly, full speed ahead. People will remember this commercial when they are in the doctor's office and are asked a bunch of creepy questions.

Finally, somebody on the Right has rediscovered hardball! I just watched both ads (male and female); they are very personal and very effective. You know you’re flying over the target when you’re taking flak, and Patty Murray is squealing because the ads hit hard.

Mz. Murray, one of the two wretched Liberal Senators from my State, is distinguished by both her stupidity and by her shrill, bitter partisanship. She had a cutsy self identification as a ‘Mom in tennis shoes’. I felt she should be characterized as a ‘Moron in tennis shoes’.
Only the lightweight Liberals from Seattle buy into her swill, but in Washington State, that is all it takes to get elected.

Good! If the rats complain, it means it’s an effective ad.
I hope it goes viral.

Maybe this skank Murray has inadvertently set “The Streisand Effect” into motion.

She majored in Physical Education in college and now she is head of the senate budget committee. You cannot make this stuff up.

There must be a lot of stupid people in Washington.

Patty Murray still misses Saddam Hussein who built schools and did so much for his people. I wonder who her “idol” is today......Assad?

I really do believe, and I speak with some familiarity because for a time she was my Senator, that Murray is the stupidest human being ever to disgrace the Senate in the entire history of the country, and that, my friends, is saying a lot. If her staff didn’t remind her to exhale she’d suffocate.
