I’m confident that the GOP-e will find a way to lose this golden opportunity.
Most likely McCain will somehow try to intimidate the GOP there like he did before when running against Obama.
“Im confident that the GOP-e will find a way to lose this golden opportunity.”
This election has them scared to death. If it’s a wave election and a bunch of conservatives are swept into office on the wave, the old line GOP will have to change. That’s why Rove et al are waging war on the Tea Party instead of Democrats this year. They regard it as an existential battle; so it will be a bloodfest.
They will declare the ad is mean spirited,doesn’t reflect true Republican values and will apologize for it at the first democratic outburst.
I already saw Rove on Fox this month saying people “don’t want to hear” Republicans bashing Obamacare, they want to hear about whatever plan Republicans will replace it with. Yeah, I’m sure the public has a great appetite to hear more promises from politicians about how they can improve health care.
Boehner and Nancy Graham will demand an end to divisive political ads.
The National CR showed us some killer ads that year. Actors were playing the part of prominent liberals reciting the lines we knew they all believed, if didn't actually say. They even had one with a Ted Kennedy lookalike driving a car over a bridge.
These were outrageously funny ads, with a very serious message. They might even had been seriously effective.
But we never found out. The national GOP decided it would have been too divisive to air them. So they settled for a mid-term shellacking instead.
Then millions of Indochinese died as a result.
We have lived in NH for many, many years and there is no way in blazes that Scott Brown, the man who hates conservatives and the Tea Party as proven by his voting record, his actions and statements will EVER get our vote... NEVER.
So while what the ad says is true, there is no way we are voting for the Republican version of Obama lite.
