Not Beating Elizabeth Warren, GOP Admakers Try to Join Her


Back in early November, the Republican independent expenditure juggernaut Crossroads GPS wanted to take Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren down a peg, so they cut an ad insinuating that her attempts to rein in big banks had put spark to the dry tinder in Zuccotti Park. Elizabeth Warren sides with extreme left protests, a narrator said over the squall of sirens. At Occupy Wall Street, protesters attack police, do drugs and crash public parks. But Warren boasts, I created much of the intellectual foundation for what they do. The message was in keeping with that of the campaign of Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown, whom Warren is running against, which has been busy trying to paint Warren as an out-of-touch Harvard academic whose work on financial regulation was just too radical for the nice blue-collar folks of Massachusetts. Well, it didnt exactly go as planned.


Although her unfavorable rating has jumped 9 points since late Septembersomething for which Crossroads is taking creditWarren is now leading Brown, a pretty popular incumbent, by seven points. The race is still a muddy picture, with major ad spending on all sides and both candidates have been bloodied. But theres one sign that, despite its spin, Crossroads doesnt think its Harvard Harpy ad campaign had the desired effect: Its completely flipped the script.

2. don't vomit, instead, take heart...
at 12 seconds in, her opponents just ADMITTED that the banks were the ones that CAUSED most of this mess.
The dumb fuckers keep forgetting that turnabout works for US, too teehee.=)

Peace,

6. Thank you Karl Rove

I really like Elizabeth Warren. I have already donated to her campaign (something I RARELY do for any candidate that is not local). Almost did so again earlier today while on her web site but, well, Christmas is coming so I decided it wouldn't be the prudent thing to do. I was wrong. Thank you Karl Rove and Crosswoods for showing me the error of my ways. I've now set up an automatic payment each month to her campaign.
