Democrats Unveil 2010 Message: ‘Hope, Change and a Buttload of Attack Ads’

Posted on | September 26, 2010 | 12 Comments

Remember when Democrats didn’t want to talk about Reverend Wright, Bill Ayers and ACORN? Remember when they kept saying how we need to focus on the important issues that matter to working American families? My, how times have changed:

Democratic candidates across the country are opening a fierce offensive of negative advertisements against Republicans, using lawsuits, tax filings, reports from the Better Business Bureau and even divorce proceedings to try to discredit their opponents and save their Congressional majority. . . .
In Ohio, Representative Betty Sutton calls her Republican rival, Tom Ganley, a “dishonest used-car salesman” who has been sued more than 400 times for fraud, discrimination, lying to customers about repairs, overcharging them and endangering their safety. She warns voters, “You’ve heard the old saying, buyer beware!”
In Arizona, Representative Harry E. Mitchell accused his opponent David Schweikert of being “a predatory real estate speculator who snatched up nearly 300 foreclosed homes, been cited for neglect and evicted a homeowner on the verge of saving his house, just to make a buck.”
In New York, Representative Michael Arcuri introduces his Republican challenger, Richard Hanna, as a millionaire who “got rich while his construction company overcharged taxpayers thousands, was sued three times for injuries caused by faulty construction and was cited 12 times for health and safety violations.” . . .

Read the rest. It’s disgusting. But then again, they’re Democrats. You can help these Republican candidates fight back against the smears:

    Sounds like what Vicky Hartzler is facing here in MO-04 (the most conservative district in the U.S. to have a democrat congressman). Ike Skelton, who has held the seat for 34 years, is trying to paint Hartzler as anti-gun and anti-military by misrepresenting votes she made while in the state house during the 90s. It’s pretty much out and out lies, but because of a huge financial disadvantage it is difficult for her campaign to counter these ridiculous attack ads.

    Lincoln’s biggest mistake was not hanging all the Copperheads.

    That said, I see the Democrats are falling back on their time honored and only real tactic: When you have nothing of substance to say or offer, screech like monkeys and fling poop.
