Skip to comments.Boehner’s tea party primary challenger accuses him of ‘Electile Dysfunction’ in new ad [VIDEO]

House Speaker John Boehners tea party primary opponent J.D. Winteregg is releasing a new parody ad Monday accusing Boehner of Electile Dysfunction.
WATCH THE NEW AD HERE
If you have a Boehner lasting more than 23 years, seek immediate medical attention, according to the online ad, which seeks to nationalize Wintereggs fundraising ahead of the May 6 Ohio eighth district Republican primary. (RELATED: TheDC Interview with J.D. Winteregg)
The intent [with the ad] is to nationalize this thing. Hes everyones speaker. Hes my representative, yeah, but hes Americas speaker. We want to get my name out there and tell people theres an alternative, Winteregg told The Daily Caller Sunday night, outlining a two-pronged approach that includes a fierce ground game in his district and also a national fundraising campaign. Its a strategy, according to his veteran Republican campaign consultants, that worked for Scott Brown in 2010, as the unknown tea party favorite mixed district door-knocking with a national drive to provide the forty-first vote in the Senate to block Obamacare.
Winteregg, 32, needs between 40,000 and 50,000 votes to defeat Boehner in next months primary, which is expected to draw about 85,000 Republican voters. Boehner is now paying workers to go door-to-door disseminating information, including some targeting Winteregg. The underdog gained traction after an endorsement from the Tea Party Leadership Fund PAC, which found that only 25 percent of Boehners own Ohio constituents still support him when hes paired against any no-name challenger.

that slithering boner lizard has ‘a reptile dysfunction’
THIS is a GREAT AD. LOVE IT.
Reminds me of when my son was in engineering college. He and a real good friend of his decided to run for the two open student body seats reserved for the college of electrical engineering.
They decided their campaign would be a fake “attack” campaign where each one would attack the other with outrageous posters set all throughout the building.
Things like “Voting for Joe is like taking a....” then a big picture of a dump truck underneath” Joe then ‘accused’ my son of “Laughing when he saw Schindler’s List”. My son retaliated with “Joe has an Uncle named Dick Leeker [true]...” All in all there were over a couple dozen posters - I still have copies of them.
The funniest thing was there was a third candidate, a real serious Asian-American student who was also running. He complained to the college and to the student union about the other two, but no specific charge could be brought. Both Joe and my son won the two seats.
Kinda foul. Surprised a conservative would go down this road. Seems he could have used a different direction. I hope this guy does not win. We don’t need nastiness as part of the Conservatives IMHO.
I thought it was kind of cute. It is an attention getter.
WHAT???? As if we needed more proof that you have zero sense of humor. What kind of prude are you?
Yes, it reminds me of that juvenile behavior, but unlike a college, an ad like this is not going to help you win, may get you some press but in the end in a general elections makes the person who put it out there a laughing stock.
This is the kind of stuff that ensures the tea party keeps losign elections. Those who were going to vote for you anyway might like it, but its going to turn off more folks than it entices.
Unless of course your target audience are a bunch of college students.
Agreed, stuff like this is what hurts the tea party, not help it. You want to be taken seriously, you don’t act like a child. The converted may think its the best thing since sliced bread, but nearly everyone else sees this and writes you off as joke.
The fact this ad was ever made shows how completely not ready for prime time this candidate is.
I see it more as juvenile than foul. The ad will likely turn away more voters from the challenger than it will attract.
The video is funny, BUT, scroll down to that ad titled...Doctors banned this diet.
WTF is up with that??
Yeah, that diseased looking whatever would cause me to lose weight, I may not be able to eat for a week just looking at the picture!
The ads for all of the incumbants should say “Do you want MORE OF THE SAME?”
Making jokes about someone’s name to hurt them is soooo third grade. If this is the best he’s got he should just drop out now. I swear, it looks like conservatives in this country have some sort of death wish, as it relates to winning an election. And besides, the name isn’t pronounced like “boner”, it’s pronounced like “bainer”.
I agree 100 percent.
It’s no surprise that you support the two most humorless candidates in American history as our “dream” ticket. I bet even Santorum, who laughs once a decade whether he needs to or not, would chuckle at this. I know Bachmann would.
Certainly this ad pushes the envelope, but in case you don’t know this in your little cloistered government paycheck world, challengers to a powerful incumbent MUST roll the dice and be a bit riskly. I know, as a gov employee, you are risk averse to an absurd degree, but thankfully, folks trying to change the country are not risk averse.
As for what being conservative has to do with it? You need to read about the first miracle in your Bible .Jesus had a sense of humor. He liked laughter. (I bet you have some phariscaical interpretation of this as grape juice blah blah blah .but you’d be WRONG)
Conservative does not mean humorless or extremely prudish.
He’s not making a joke out of his name per se. The reference to that was buried about 50 seconds deep into the ad. The main point was the “electile dysfunction” - and for so many reasons, that explains the career of Boehner. And this “is that the best you got” is so infantile .do you know the entirety of his campaign? Why would you assume you know his entire campaign from one ad? You don’t.
Thanks for posting ..btw .just sent this to a major radio host (one of the big four) who loved it.
Let me apologize for the FREEP prude patrol - humorless sad sacks, who in their phony self righteousness, don’t even fully understand the genius of this ad. There are many subtle and politically significant jabs at Boehner which all surround the major thesis of a lack of manhood in perfect humorous analogy.
The pharisees live on .
Very nice add! Thanks for posting.
Look if you are a liberal as your posts many times reveal, why not just be honest with yourself and the rest of us. I know it will be difficult to take off the mask but it must be done. If this is not true than your morals are very low at best.
I cannot perceive of anything more infantile and childish that voting for RINO Republicans over and over again, yet somehow thinking this ‘one last vote’ will result in something different.
“Let me apologize for the FREEP prude patrol - humorless sad sacks, who in their phony self righteousness, dont even fully understand the genius of this ad.”
I pay no attention to them. Elitest aristocrats need to be ridiculed and I welcome it.
You're obviously a terrible person! (lol - see my tagline).
Satan is the false accuser .you have just falsely accused me - so ST_U or back up your claim. Right now .naps ..put up or shut up. You can’t come up with a single shred of evidence that I’m a liberal.
If you think having a sense of humor means being liberal, that explains a lot of your absurd posts over the years ..but I’m serious, you need to put up or shut up right now!! I am far more conservative than your man crush Ricky Santuckabee ever thought about being.
A liberal would bash Bachmann and Santorum at any possible time. You do it constantly. Two very very conservative people and you bash them. That is my proof. Royal Flush.
Well, not so much elitist aristrocrats here on FR, as it is the prudish humorless shallow and melodramatic santuckabee niche patrol.
I don’t assume I know anything about him or his entire ad campaign, but I don’t believe semi-crude humor, based on the mispronunciation of someone’s name, is much of a winning tactic.
You are way over your head mr. bureaucrat. A: I didn't BASH them in this thread, in fact, I complimented them on having more of a sense of humor than you have. I said they're humorless, but that's nothing but an accurate definition. B: I bash them at times because I think they are poor representatives of conservatism as Presidential candidates. I fully support Bachmann for Congress, and for her being in the public eye. She was a terrible prez candidate. I also realize that Santorum is not a true conservative, something your sweater vest man crush will not allow you to admit. He's a pro union pro enviro pro GOP e (when it suits him) cynic you see a beautiful family and swoon like a school girl and your brain immediately freezes up in a blush of infantile emotion.
If this is your "royal flush" - you are not playing with a full deck. Which we knew.
He didn’t mispronounce the name .and besides, your post assumes you know with your chilidish taunt “is that the best you got?” YOu remind me of eric holder and “dont go there buddy”
Which we knew.
lol. A lot of mice in that statement or shall I say rats.
Hilarious, and my kind of humor....thanks!
Again, you can feel how you like this ad is not going to be effective for anyone other than the choir. Any lift this might give him in a primary will hurt him 3 to 4 times as much in a general.
The fact this ad was made at all shows exactly how inept this guy is as a candidate, and basically plays right into the perception that the tea party are a bunch of low educated dullards.
As long as this is the tact that some tea party candidates are going to take, they will never be able to be more than a fringe footnote.
You can’t be claiming you are standing for some higher moral belief, like limited government, fiscal responsibility etc etc etc and then be putting out ads like this one, or the turtle one. Completely undermines any claim to higher moral goals.
Infantile and self destructive.
It was your transition into the meme of Tea Party has to do anything/everything to be perceived as credible to be taken seriously.
After your reply, I merely pointed out the childish and infantile tack of most muddled Republicans in supporting chronic RINOism. Same thing in my book, really.
This guy wouldnt fly as a progressive liberal icon...how he ended up in this position....is unfathomable .....
It is armature and Kindergarten behavior. Certainly not acceptable for a Conservative candidate.
Immature. An armature is this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armature_%28sculpture%29
I think the objective is to step outside of the sullen and dour defeat script the GOP owns.
Anyway, Boehner is manifestly impotent.
It will be interesting to see how long it takes that Ad to go viral on the internet.
Surprised a conservative would go down this road. Seems he could have used a different direction. I hope this guy does not win. We dont need nastiness as part of the Conservatives IMHO.
Well, you might want to keep your “humble” opinion to yourself. That mind-set is probably why Conservatives have been getting our butts kicked in Primaries and Generals for the past few years. But, after reading your tagline, I understand where you’re coming from. Might be time for the Evangelical Right to realize that neither Jesus Christ nor Paul the Apostle are running for office in America; just real people who understand that we live in a “real” world (as sick as it may be) and adjust thereby. Jesus ate with publicans and sinners and performed his first miracle in Cana at a wedding where people were on a 3-day drunk. He never would have fit into your, Santorum’s or Bachmann’s political party.
Sometimes you’ve got to get into the mud.....The Left has had the monopoly on Alinskyite tactics, and the fact is, like it or not, they work.
It’s time to start throwing it right back at them. In politics, nice guys finish last.
And you remind me of someone’s official campaign enforcer. I said I believe that line was not going to be effective, for the reasons I already stated, and I will stand by my comments.
It may or may not be effective .but he has only one chance in this race to throw the hail Marys, to take risk, to throw long ..go for the green in 2 .whatever analogy you like. He will never ever win playing it safe and conventional.
To analyze this ad out of that context is to render your analysis non relevant.
No rats in there ..you are a pro life liberal, and thus have no credibility to call anyone around here a liberal. You have no intellectual basis to question one’s conservatism based on how they react to an ad. And it’s infantile to think that not supporting someone for President = being anti that person over all.
Lotta people I support to one degree or another .scant few of them would I support for President. Maybe that’s not over your head.
As you read more of the posts on this thread. You will see that you are once again in the minority. Of course a person with no morals as yourself find that not a problem. The ad is disgusting and repulsive and that is the bottom line. Glad to see as a LEADER that once I put my post down that people lined up in droves to agree with me. You wants again on the losing side. Liberal that you are and all.
You have just dipped your skirt into the gutter. Just to hell with you and your phony religiosity and faux self righteouness
..once again, PUT UP or SHUT UP.
actually, I don't think that's the case at all. Not that a single thread matters as far as meaningful statistics, but reading up the latest 20 posts of so, looks like it's about 4-1 or maybe 4-2 (depending on how you count one post). And one of the "no" votes was because it was only preaching to the choir. Which is fine, ads like this are for FUNDRAISING to the choir outside of ohio, which is why they do these ads. This is part of a campaign.
You are just bad at math as you are at political analysis ..a quick persual shows 12 commenters like, 5 dislike, and 2 are somewhere in the middle. Of the 5 that disliked, 2 only disliked because of its lack of effectiveness in their minds, meaning only 3 were morally offended as you.
Again, not that it matters, but you got your fanny kicked in pure numbers too! (this is of post 47, count was quick, very quick, but it’s darned close if not exactly correct) ..
“To analyze this ad out of that context is to render your analysis non relevant.”
It’s not my analysis (I’m not writing a book), it’s my opinion, and relevance is in the mind of the reader.
Try to imagine, if you will, what will happen with “elictile dysfunction” if he wins the primary. How many people will hear it spoken and think it was “erectile dysfunction”? Do think there is any possible chance the leftist media will use that little crudeness to slap him around, much the same way they used Romney’s “47%” comment? Would they try to use this as disrespecting people with a physical problem? How about the radical feminists? Boy , I’ll bet they’ll have lot’s o’ fun with this one. What about during an interview with Bob Schieffer, when he’s trying to make his points about policy and he is asked to defend such a “vile accusation”? Do you think, for a single second, that Lil’ Debbie Scultz, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, et al., won’t try to find a way to turn that into proof that “Republicans are disgusting human beings”?
He is not campaigning in a vacuum and he will not be able to reset everything back to zero after the primary. While his little joke might warrant a couple of chuckles, and maybe raise a few dollars, his ultimate target has to be the Democrat candidate. To that end he needs to not gather a bunch of useless baggage during the primary. He might be the better choice for the Republican rep, but we all need to remember that the most important thing is that we do not give any seats to the Dems, and little things matter. Remember Macaca?
