13 Is that Warner ad the one that uses the Politifact lie of the year on keeping your coverage and Politifact is obviously butthurt over this and spin spin spin goes the top?

Posted by: alexthechick - Team Ebola Zombie at September 30, 2014 11:17 AM (mf5HN)

14 What amuses me about this is that someone in the Media is always coming up with this or that group/org that will objectively decide if what someone has said is the truth or not is the underlying admission that the Media doesn't do that anymore.

Wasn't that one of the original purposes of journalist?

To find out the truth and report it?

Now it takes specialized organizations to do this.

And only because it's no longer a part of journalism anymore.

*even more funny is that the supposed objective spokesgroup is NOT*

28 Depressing the other sides turnout worked pretty well Obama in 2012. I'm pretty sure now that Mary L. is seeing her final days in the Senate. The race won't be decided until December, and you can bet the DNC will put every spare dime they have left into trying to save her, but it's very unlikely she can survive. Last year I would have bet that Hagan was toast and Mary L. would squeak by, but it is turning out the other way.

42 That last sentence from PolitiFact directly addresses the issue - Warner never repeated the promise after he had broken it, because after voting for the ACA, even HE knew he had broken his pledge. To continue to state that promise would have been consistent, if PolitiFact was correct in its mind reading. If Warner had NOT felt that he had broken his word, he would have continued pimping his pledge. So that sentence certainly does apply to this issue. It directly contradicts the Great Carnak "Truth" PolitiFact is trying to sell.

65 I want to see Landrieu go down (and I think she will) but my problem with the ad is that it's basically saying black people in Lousiana aren't doing well because Landrieu isn't doing enough as their Senator.

Is a poor neighborhood that's in bad shape really the responsibility of a US Senator?  I certainly don't look to my Senator for an issue like that.  Should she have doled out more federal cash?

I like the strategy of conservatives asking the black community "what have Democrats done for you lately" but that sort of just reinforces the idea that government and bureaucrats  are where problems are solved.

I feel like it's winning a battle but losing the war.  It's still a "plantation mentality' that's being broadcasted.

96 It's a decent ad, but it could also be reinterpreted as, "Landrieu hasn't brought home enough bacon and she's eating it all herself in the parlor across the tracks." I don't think that was the intent of the ad, but it's a dangerous maneuver to glom on to such thinking. For the LIV, yeah, it might get them to replace the incumbent (which is nice); but it doesn't address the real problem of governance via centralized planning. Maybe the next ad can subtly engage voters on that front. Good ad but with serious shortcomings in the grand scheme of things. Get Landrieu out: good. But what comes next... handout or empowerment?

Yes. Because...Jobs. 

It is the Job-Killing Policies that the Democrats have passed that keep these neighborhoods poor.

 

It's like people have forgotten that a prosperous economy with lots of good jobs, solve a lot of the problems that people are complaining about.

Every ad that Hagan & Co. run in NC is a lie, or a half truth. They have no compunction about it at all. And, the lies become truth to the LIV's. I hear the ad crap echoed every day in speech,and in letters to the editors. I sometimes feel that it is a problem for the Republicans...., they don't go for outright lies in their campaigning.

112 Actually, I think the best part is that he is not asking black people to vote for anyone.

He's saying, black people have been used by Landrieu.. he's saying don;t vote for her.  And if they just stay home, that is a vote for the Republican.. that's fine with me.

But, to all of you who commented it implies free shit, I don;t think it necessarily does.

It can also imply the Dems are fucking up this economy.  A Repub President and a Repub Senate would get this economy kick-started a helluva quicker than this current pack of jackasses is.

A better economy means more jobs.. more jobs mean less crime.. more jobs means more taxes for better local services. 

It's not just about free shit.. it's about growing this economy which solves a boatload of problems all across America.

118 I get it, and I do think Republicans should rely more on emotional appeals in order to reach voters (I think that's why Reagan was so successful) but I almost get the idea that the ad is for a Democrat running to the Left of Landrieu. its a third party ad, so no.....you can not end the ad with "so vote for Cassidy". Independent groups can only advocate so its an effective ad in advocating to not vote for Mary.

In general, chan is used for babies, young children, grandparents and teenagers. It may also be used towards cute animals, lovers, close friends, any youthful woman, or between friends. Using chan with a superior's name is considered to be condescending and rude. http://tinyurl.com/k4weo73 In this case, "Ebola-chan" is ebola personified as a "cute" young girl.

65 I want to see Landrieu go down (and I think she will) but my problem with the ad is that it's basically saying black people in Lousiana aren't doing well because Landrieu isn't doing enough as their Senator.

Is a poor neighborhood that's in bad shape really the responsibility of a US Senator? I certainly don't look to my Senator for an issue like that. Should she have doled out more federal cash?

I like the strategy of conservatives asking the black community "what have Democrats done for you lately" but that sort of just reinforces the idea that government and bureaucrats are where problems are solved.

I feel like it's winning a battle but losing the war. It's still a "plantation mentality' that's being broadcasted.
Posted by: McAdam


Next time, watch the ad.  He says that Landrieu ran promising to help the black community but everything is worse for blacks.  Then he says that the black community needs to get free from the government teat.  That's it.

Anyway, are you really saying that government can't make things worse for people?  Of course it can.

152 Thanks Bandersnatch and the rest of the Horde. That has to be one of the best political ads I've ever seen. Too bad the Party of Stoopid won't try ads like this. You could substitute just about any Prog/Com's name for Landrieu and still be accurate.

I actually agree with both of you.  Yes, I hate the implication that if things are bad, government has to fix them.  But I also think this may just be the most powerful commercial of the cycle.  It's dynamite.  And the spokesman should be pitching Oxyclean: he's that good.

Start with getting people to demand competence from their government.  Then maybe they'll start to wonder why they entrust their lives to incompetents.

166 Great ad but won't matter.  He should have stood strong decades ago but I bet he just went with the flow.  Now he wants to influence those  whom he help get the handouts.  The AF community will always vote for a Democrat because they want their stuff and Mary will legislate giving them stuff.  They don't care that they live in squalor and immorality.  They are used to that.  They had a chance decades ago when the debate was between Booker  Washington and Dubois.  Dubois won because he used religion to convince the AF community that they had enough political clout to force the government to give them their stuff if they vote for the Democrats just like Jeremiah Wright.  Washington supported a hard work and moral ethic.  The rest is history.  They have destroyed themselves and now all they have is to be physically restrained and incarcerated to keep them from forcing their anarchy on others while the rest of the country waits for a couple of generations.  It's a shame but they made foolish choices advised by race baiters like Van Jones, Sharpton, Jackson and yes.. Obama.   I will bet that the fellow who made the ad was part of that foolish choice.  His mea culpa doesn't move me at all.  Results matter.  If he changes 1% of the vote then maybe I'll listen.  I found that out when I worked in the Alan Keyes campaign.  All talk for self attention and no substance...kind of like Obama but on a different level.

Posted by: Buffy at September 30, 2014 02:35 PM (dmWbH)

167 There's a great nugget of wisdom that should resonate with the black community.  And it should be told time and time again.

"Because she (Landrieu) knows no matter what she does, 95% of us (blacks) will line up and vote for her anyway."

Nail meet hammer.  The Democrat Party doesn't offer blacks anything but fear of the alternative.
