Senate Candidate’s Silent Pause Demolishes Democrat Gary Peters’ ‘War on Women’ Meme
TPNN ^ | April 22, 2014 | Matthew Burke

Terri Lynn Land, who’s running for the U.S. Senate against leftist progressive Democrat and current Congressman Gary Peters, is tired of the ridiculous “War on Women” meme that Democrats invented to smear Republicans (WATCH VIDEO BELOW).

But it didn’t take any words for Land, the former Michigan secretary of state, to destroy Peters’ accusation. All is took was a pregnant pause to make the accusation that a woman would be waging a “War on Women” look moronic in this quite funny new ad by Terri Lynn Land, entitled simply, “Really?”

The Michigan senate race is turning out to be a highly competitive one. Early favorite, Democrat congressman Gary Peters, has come under fire for using Stalinist bully tactics in threatening to pull TV licenses of stations who ran anti-Obamacare ads. Peters joined fellow unpopular Democrat Harry Reid, in calling Americans explaining how they’ve been harmed by Obamacare liars.

It is a pretty devastating ad. But this victory is going to be little comfort if we fail to win Arkansas and hold Georgia. The other races are going okay as far as I can tell. Landrieu and Hagan ready to be put out to pasture.

I like it. Using humor is a good idea on issues like this.

Meanwhile Mark (Golden) Schauer is promising to be the Michigan Diblasio if elected and close charter schools while giving more money to the public standard schools.

Even if the recent poll is BS (and it probably is), the race seems too close for comfort.

I think the thing that Georgia has going for it is that Jason Carter wants to be governor. I think that that will drive conservatives to the polls in larger numbers than otherwise and hence Nunn will go down as well.

In short, though Sam Nunn may have been a favorite neither his liberal daughter or the haunting of Jimmy Carter will make a difference

Marky Mark was willing to get peppersprayed over Right to Work opposition. If it is not MEA, he’ll shut it down.

Thanks for the ping; post. HOORAY Terri Lynn Land! Peters and the ‘rat party will continue their attack on specific women, men, children and minorities who do not kowtow to their philosophical beliefs. Do you have the philosophical cajones to attack them? Nice ad, nevertheless.

After Obama took a jab at her for saying that some women make deliberate choices that earn less money, Land took it right back to them.

She pointed to the recent Jay Carney magazine interview where Carney’s wife said she made a choice to work part time so she could take care of her kids.

Dems are continually opening the door on their own face. Pubbies just aren’t sharp enough to id and point them out.

That was a terribly flawed poll, as has been verified.

Short, sweet and to the point. I love the Ad. I think it will be very effective.

Another effective Ad. Due to the length of the Ad, I’m thinking this is probably an internet Ad; not a TV ad. Am I right?

The “Meet Terri Land” ad is an internet ad. Plus there are the ones put out by AFP that are pretty effective as well.

The very name “Carter” is worth 5 percentage points for the GOP Candidate, and Sam Nunn is so “yesterday”, that only the old people remember him and many of them are dead or dying. Georgia will stay in the GOP Column.
