Wonder what you would find if you frisked the latest political advertisement from the National Republican Senatorial Committee?
Answer: Perhaps the Republican Party isn’t as “extreme” as the mainstream media portrays them to be.
Instead, it’s the out of control “Spendocrats” who are extreme:
- 57% think the Democrat agenda is “extreme”.
- 60% favor repeal of Obama-Care.
- 56% disapprove of Obama’s job performance.
- 61% favor immigration laws like Arizona just passed.
- 68% oppose the Ground Zero mosque.
- 65% are angry at federal government policies.
- 65% say America is on the wrong track.
When one takes a glance at the numbers above, they have to just sit back and think: “Ouch!” I give major props to the National Republican Senatorial Committee for putting together this advertisement. A lot of conservatives and Republicans out there (including me) feel like it’s about time the GOP put something together that captured the current attitude of America. In the end, hopefully this ad will become a viral success story for the NRSC and help stir up some Republican support amongst the independent/moderate-Democrat demographic. As Jim Geraghty – from The National Review – points out, “Their closing sequence, showcasing that the so-called extreme candidates are either leading or in dead heats, feels like a professional athlete responding to a trash-talker by pointing to the scoreboard.” … So true and brilliant.
With President Obama taking a break from his golf game and retreating to the summer vacation island of Martha’s Vineyard today, this advertisement would be absolutely perfect if it were broardcasted on national television. Oh, just imagine the possibilities…
Question: Could we expect a similar ad by the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) in the near future or do we not want to ruin a good thing? 😆
