mitch mcconnell gridlock obstruction

 

Mitch McConnell is about to be challenged by Matt Bevin, a Louisville businessman, so he'll have all kinds of questions and comments about his policies and record thrown at him by a fellow Republican.

Meantime, the Dems aren't letting an opportunity to spotlight a few talking points of their own slip through their fingers:

majoritypac:

Mitch McConnell calls himself a "guardian of gridlock." Grinding the Senate to a halt, even when it hurts Kentucky. Now McConnell's own party's had enough.

Just for you, a trip down Memory Lane (aka Memory Pain):

(CNN) –Senate Majority PAC, an independent group that works to keep the Senate in Democrats' hands, launched another attack ad Tuesday against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, highlighting the Kentucky Republican as a "guardian of gridlock."

The ad, also sponsored by Patriot Majority USA, is part of a campaign the two groups kicked off last month called "30 Years Is Too Long," as they seek to oust the senator in next year's election.

It can't happen soon enough.

Please consider donating to Alison Lundergan Grimes, his Democratic opponent.

Check out this $10,000 attack ad buy brought to you by Karl Rove's conservative super PAC American Crossroads. They must be mighty worried to go to all that trouble. The spot mocks Ashley Judd, who is thinking about a Senate run against Kentucky Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell:

Oh how sweet it would be to see her defeat Mitch "make Obama a one-term president" McConnell.

Ashley Judd responded via her publicist:

WaPo: “Ashley thanks Senator McConnell, Karl Rove, and their negative allies for all the attention as she considers her future political plans, although a decision hasn’t been made yet.”

And thank you for the free press and extra boost in the name recognition department, Karl and Co.

2007 VIDEO: Attack ad on Mitt Romney... by Mitt Romney advisor

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Via who else? Buzzfeed's Andrew Kaczynski:

While working for John McCain's campaign in 2008, current Romney strategists Russ Schriefer and Stuart Stevens made this ad attacking Romney as a flip-flopper according to the book “The Real Romney.”

The duo jumped ship mid-campagn to work for Romney in 2007.

Go figure.

Wait, if they jumped ship in 2007, why did they make a video for McCain in 2008? Oh well, it's the anti-Willard thought that counts.

VIDEO: Wisconsin Democratic party releases Scott Walker recall ad, "Walkergate"

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

John Dean, who knows a thing or two about a thing or two about Watergate, tweeted, "PROB: WALKER's WORSE THAN NIXON."

Meantime, John Nichols is reporting that Scottie won't be challenging the recall signatures:

Overwhelmed by Opposition, Wisconsin's Walker Won't Challenge Recall Petitions...

If Walker's campaign continues to stand down—and there is no certainty that this will be the case—the primary election for governor could come in late April, although the more likely date is May 1. The general election pitting a Democratic challenger against Walker would be four weeks late, perhaps as soon as May 29.

The investigation is getting closer to Scott Walker and as Walter Cronkite once said in 1972 about Watergate, "events have been rushing toward one seemingly inevitable conclusion."

Scott Walker must go.

The Miami Herald has a good piece up, along with the above ad from a Tampa Bay group supporting Willard Romney. The Herald includes the luscious description of Newton Leroy Gingrich as "a baggage-laden disaster against whom Barack Obama would love to run."

VIDEO: Mitt Romney takes President Obama's words out of context in new ad

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Ooo, scary Obama is saying stupid, icky things!

What's that? He's not? But it's right there in a grainy, echo-y, ominous, creepy, distorted video.

Taegan:

[A]s the New York Times points out, the line, "which is perhaps the spot's most devastating moment, is also the one that seems to be the most taken out of context. In fact, at the time, Mr. Obama was referring to something that an aide to his then opponent, Senator John McCain of Arizona, had said in reference to the McCain campaign -- not Mr. Obama, then or now."

Willard, you blew it in your very first ad.
