MoveOn.Org seeks $.5 million to destroy BootMurtha / Vets For The Truth...
BootMurtha.com ^ | 8/9/2006 | IPWGOP

Posted on 08/09/2006 8:22:42 AM PDT by IPWGOP

MOVEON.ORG
seeks to pre-empt
BOOTMURTHA!

from MoveOn.org e-mail:

"John Murtha is being smeared but we saw this coming and we have a new TV ad campaign to put Republican candidates on defense early—making a win possible. We can make August a month they'll never forget.
Can you chip in $50 or more today?"...

"We've prepared a hard-hitting new TV ad about Iraq to move this fight into the congressional districts of vulnerable Republicans. But to flood the airways in these places we need to raise $500,000 this week.
Can you chip in $50 or more today?"

 

That's part of an e-mail sent out to MoveOn.org members this week.

The liberal, anti-war, anti-national defense Left knows if John Murtha is defeated in Pennsylvania they will suffer a large set-back. A set-back to their facade that "Harry Truman" and "Scoop Jackson" Democrats exist today.

We never met President Harry Truman... we do not know President Harry Truman; but one thing is clear: John Murtha is no Harry Truman.

This is why the BootMurtha Campaign under Iowa Presidential Watch PAC's Vets For The Truth Committee is so important on the national scene.

 

While conservatives are just waking up to the importance of the BootMurtha project, leftwing Democrats are rally troops to immediately raise $500,000 to stop Boot Murtha.

 

Why is the Left scared of BootMurtha?

BootMurtha has already made the DRUDGEREPORT. BootMurtha already has 'boots on the ground' organizing in Murtha's own state of Pennsylvania. Those volunteers and paid staffers are PA residents and PA veterans. The VFTT Committee is capitalizing on prior knowledge and victory in bringing a successful effort to defeat Murtha in his own backyard.

The other good news is that the 'word on the street' in PA reports Murtha is concerned. Murtha knows his charade as a strong-on-defense congressman can easily be torn apart by the truth – truth BootMurtha is making available to the voters in PA!

The question is this: Will common-sense, conservative Americans recognize the value of supporting BootMurtha EARLY ON in its efforts? To not only defeat the charlatan hawk Murtha, but to defeat the liberal left that will fight to defend their 'stocking horse.'

Irey can't do it, though, on wishes and dreams. She needs money, too.

I am not giving blanket checks to the Republicans anymore, but to selected conservative republicans. Diana fits that bill, and will get my money.

It is not a waste of money for TV time. Most people get their news from television. Who on our side will raise millions of dollars for ads? Soros is prepared to raise and spend huge sums of money. His effect on politics is not a good development for this nation.

Good news, MoveOn is nervous. Neither they nor Murtha want the truth to get out in the 12th District.

BootMurtha is less than $1300 shy of their goal of $12,500 for a full page ad to get that truth out in the 12th District.

Support BootMurtha and Diana Irey.

I pray that your right, but if I was richer I would be writing checks to help the fight. If she wins and Joe helps the Republicans take his old seat, then the upcoming elections might be a great improvement even if we lose a few seats.

Donate to a smear campaign against people whose shoes we're not worthy to lick clean and to help embolden terrorists by dividing the nation on the war! This is where your hard earned (or in the case of our supporters, your not-earned) money should go, not to cure some silly disease or to help allieviate poverty or maybe even to help send some stupid minority kid go to college!"

It isn't a smear if it is true. Why is it that in the hands of a liberal, the truth is a "smear" and lies are "speaking truth to power"?

The BootMurtha attack is rolling up the flank and causing Rat reserves to be committed to a safe zone in the battle.

" Most people get their news from television"

Network news is now down to just about 30 million viewers a night (out of a population of 300 million), down from close to 60 million 30 years ago.
And that is a population that is much higher than it was before.
If network TV news had anywhere near the power they used to have before, President Bush would have lost in 2004.
They don't.

Let me guess. Those stuck in the muds will say Iraq had no WMD's, was not associated with al Queda yada yada. Same old routine they have been monotonously repeating for 3 years. i don't think people vote the past. I want to know what a candidate sees in the future.

Thanks, Doug. That's exactly the point. The reason the Swifties got such traction was due to the ads they ran against Kerry on '04. Prior to those ads, they had little if any traction. Meaning their efforts were not getting into the living rooms of those who needed to hear their message. THEY HAD TO BUY THE AIR TIME THEMSELVES. AND SO DOES BOOT MURTHA / VETS FOR THE TRUTH.

It is not enough to make waves through the Internet. Politics is still 'fought' through messages in the newspapers, on the radio and on tv. Internet is used to stir up the troops (preach to the choir) BUT IT DOES NOT REACH THE ACTUAL VOTERS IN ANY LARGE DEGREE.

Main stream media knows this. That is why they will not print or air our message.... only the liberals' gets air time.

I do not mean to be unduly harsh here. But crass as it is, money is needed in large amounts to counter what MoveOn.Org is going to do.

Well for pity's sake, don't waste your money running the ad in August! Half, or more, of the area is on vacation, followed by a good two weeks of "back to school" stuff. It'll be at least mid-September before an "ad" will be acceptable to the locals. ;)

Guess *someone* forgot to clue Moveon.org in as to Murtha's views on "carpetbaggers" interfering in the campaign???

SHEESH! It's just no fun when you can't even hand them the rope.

Well, seeing how "successful" Moveon.org has been over the last election cycles, I would think it means little.

I agree Irey and her support teams need lotsa cash. That is a reality of politics, regardless of your opponent. But having Moveon.org and Code Pink and Michael Moore supporting Murtha is a HUUUUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGEEEEEE advantage for Irey.

oops! Neither did I. :) I merely meant that when one has a limited amount of funds to spend, said funds should be spent in a manner that will provide the widest exposure for the amount spent. :)

As for Moveon? Please, please, spend your monies on an ad that will fly in CA, but will be deemed "offensive" by local mores and values. ;)

Think it through: It's not about getting on the network news, it's about buying airtime during heavily watched shows... You go where the viewers are. Simple. But expensive.

The cost to produce a TV ad + the cost to air the TV ad = total cost. Fifty dollars will be spent 100% towards these costs. Period.

By the way, I'm the webmaster for BootMurtha.com and I also do all the cartoons, graphics and most of the writing... plus spend time here on FreeRepublic with threads. That puts me at way over 40 hours a week.

Guess how much of that $50 goes to pay me?

ZERO.

And that's so that ALL the $50 can go towards ads or whatever else is needed to Boot Murtha.
