GOPer Attacks Primary Opponent: He Won't Say 'Repeal Obamacare'

A tea party Senate candidate is going after one of his Republican primary competitors over a supporting ad that does not include the phrase "repeal Obamacare."

North Carolina Senate candidate Greg Brannon's (R) campaign is attacking North Carolina House Speaker Thom Tillis (R-NC) Senate campaign over a new ad by American Crossroads in support of the state House Speaker, establishment Republicans' preferred candidate in the race.

The narrator in the ad said Tillis has the "conservative guts" to replace Obamacare with "honest healthcare reforms." The ad however does not say Tillis wants to repeal Obamacare and that's where the Brannon campaign pounced.

"You’ll notice it makes no mention of repealing Obamacare which would take real guts and surprisingly it even references the same radio interview in which Thom says Obamacare is a great idea that can’t be paid for," Brannon campaign manager Reilly O'Neal told The Plum Line's Greg Sargent. "What I’m not at all surprised to see is an ad touting his conservative credentials launch on April 1st of all days. Seems fitting."

The Tillis campaign responded that the House speaker strongly opposes Obamacare.

"Speaker Tillis obviously does not think Obamacare is a great idea, and in fact he wants to repeal it and will do so in the U.S. Senate," the Tillis campaign's Jordan Shaw said.

Tillis, actually, has said there are a few good ideas in the health care law but that he still opposes it over all.

Tillis is too liberal to run on a different platform to Kay Hagan.

If he wants to fix Obamacare and fix immigration, keep Hagan.

Obamacare creates a new tax authority, therefore the ruling class is all for it or at least for tinkering with it.

Bottomline is Obamacare was a tax snuck by the American electorate.

I, for one, am glad that Romney did not win; if he did do you think the party could, at all, hold his feet to the firewhen they are unwilling/unable to do so w/ Obama? — No, allowing the party to win with a political clone of Obama would have been the affirming signal the GOP is looking for to justify significant moves further left.

The party failed to nominate a candidate who could win, period. The blame is not on the voter, who is free to vote or not as they please, but on the candidate to attract those votes.

Romney was a liberal in masa taxes and pretending to be a conservative - and we all knew it. We were supposed to pretend he was something he wasn’t like the liberals do? That is the thing, conservatives will never pretend that way.

If the Republican Party wants to win, they need to nominate better people

No, blue-collar workers refused to vote for Romney. Maybe Romney should have been doing tours of factories instead of hanging with his elitist Wall Street buddies.

Everyone conservative voted for Romney.

The problem was that Romney DID NOT WANT TO WIN.
The socialist chameleon was in it for Soros, his partner
in JETBlue.

G.O.P. = Give Obama Power

and

RomneyCARE = ObamaCARE = HillaryCARE

Also, if the backstabbing, liar, Willard Romney
did not have his paid surrogates attack Gov. Palin
AND HER CHILDREN,
then Obama would have never been pRes_ _ent.

Romney is responsible for Obama winning BOTH TIMES!!

A lot of folks will remember where that “type” of line originated. It’s from the ‘60s when Southern Democrats, like George Wallace, adopted for their battle cry: “Segregation now; Segregation forever”.

Not sure your idea is a good one. But, I don’t know everything.

Get over yourself. Romney lost because he ran a lousy campaign. Had he ran his campaign like he performed in the first debate he would have cleaned the floor with the kenyan. Instead he allowed the Dems to define him with no return fire and followed a consultant driven tip toe to the election loser game plan. Those decisions are 100% on Romney. Stop blaming others for his failures.

No. Voter fraud gave the White House to Obama. I will never be convinced otherwise. States were called for Obama with 1% of precincts reporting. I watched it happen on Fox News with several of my friends. When the AP says it's over, it's over. The early voting setup in this country is nothing but pure unadulterated DEMOCRAT fraud!
