Will Republicans Run This Ad?
They should step up and stick it to him.
Check it out:
There is an ad running out there. John Fund sent me a story today. He said, “Rush, this is so great, and I know the Democrats are worried ’cause Chris Cillizza wrote about it in the Washington Post.” Apparently — and this is key to understand — the Republicans are not running this ad in question. A Republican consultant amazingly put it together, but an outside group is buying and paying for it.
It uses footage of New Hampshire Senator Jeanne Shaheen where she says, like Obama said, “If you like your insurance, you can keep it.” And on the screen while she’s saying that, graphics note that Obama was awarded the Lie of the Year by PolitiFact for saying the same thing. But then where the ad hits the home run is, it ends with this line: “Next November, if you like your senator, you can keep her. If not, you know what to do.”
It’s a great ad and I wrote Fund back and I said, “John, don’t get excited. The Republicans aren’t gonna run this ad. It’s too confrontational. It’s not bipartisan. It’s not respectful. The Republicans aren’t gonna cause problems. They’re not gonna say these kind of mean things. Outside groups will.” I’m being facetious. But I’m saying I’ll be shocked if the Republicans actually run this ad. I can see outside groups doing it. It’s a great ad.
