Same message (in a $333,000 ad buy) in Texas except aimed at a "Medicare-killing Democrat" running for Congress funded by a super PAC the Congressional Leadership Fund.

Doesn't appear to be an accidental, rogue Florida caller.

Doesn't matter. The people who believe Obama to be a socialist aren't smart enough to understand why this would be ridiculous.

No, but the sort of person who volunteers to make phone calls for Republicans in Florida is going to be that sort of person.

Remember, this is where the "Tea Party" was born. These are the people who don't want a government takeover of Medicare or Social Security.

Here's the thing: if we do get the sort of comprehensive, top-to-bottom health care reform we really need in this country (and I'd argue that "Obamacare" is a good start, but still sort of half-assed), Medicare probably will cease to exist as a separate, independent program.

And that would probably be a good thing.

shiat like this will perverse the airwaves the week before the election. All funded by Koch. I guarantee it.
 
2012-09-29 12:44:46 PM  
If you're campaign has no ideas, just make shiat up. Of course, it might help if the shiat you were making up didn't sound like it was pulled out of the ass of a paranoid home schooled 7th grader raised on the propaganda of parents living in a militia camp.

Well, of course he's against Medicare. He's going to raid Medicare funding in order to fund Obamacare:

If the Republicans adhered to that standard the silence would be deafening.

Medicare is financed with Crying Babby Jebus Eagle Freedombucks.

Well it really does make sense to privatize it. That way people will be forced to provide for their own future, and let's face it, they would have wasted that money on something like beer or drugs anyway.

For better or worse, right-wing derp isn't enough to warrant the tag. Otherwise, we'd also have the Arizona and Texas tags people in this tab have been demanding for a while.

Medicare for old people is not "socialism". Medicare for everyone could be called "socialism". Not as socialist as our public school system.

He's a socialist that thinks bigger government can solve our problems!

And know what else this asshole wants to do? He wants to cut $750 billion from YOUR Medicare!

He must be stopped!

You're right. Public schools for adults would be more socialist. We can call them re-education centers.

It just highlights how incredibly unintelligent he is. He probably had to get Kenyan affirmative action to get in the madrassa, too.

You know, I'm automatically cynical of anyone who uses the words "Democrat Plant" when one of the crazies in the Republican party slips the leash and makes a break for the fence. Why not? There are plenty of perfectly good examples of descent being the highest form of patriotic without having to believe that every idiot on the right is an extremely canny and savvy leftist trying to make conservatives look bad. Besides, if every stupid Republican is actually a smart Democrat, then the Democrats have a huge, lurching majority that can never be overcome.

This one, though, might not surprise me - she stays on script until she's being recorded, and then Obama is a socialist Muslim and stuff. The media getting hold of that would plant a great big clanger right in the middle of the Florida Republican campaign, put Romney on the defensive, and do more for the Democrats than all day long on the other phone bank.

I'm going to clarify here that I'm 100% certain that this person is, in fact, a duly noted volunteer of the Republican campaign, and God save me from sounding like an apologist for an odious and visceral campaign trading on narrow-minded elitism and bigotry, but it would provide an explanation for why "Democrat plant" and "overzealous staffer" explanations get so much traction in the party. Someone gets caught saying what the campaign actually means, and the campaign doesn't really realize that they're in a slim minority saying those things. As the campaign goes down in flames, its staffers desperately clutch at any straws they can reach to at least mitigate the accusations being leveled. Hence the "Democrat plant" meme.

Our military would only be socialist if they allowed 0-17 year olds to join in addition to 35-senior citizens.

This is what conservatives believe.

Well, she IS a Florida Panhandle Republican, so this is likely.


Um, Clay County is not in the panhandle. Now she may be from that area and be a transplant like me because I didn't read the article, but Clay is in NE Florida. Technially the panhandle starts around Taylor and Madison and goes to Escambia.

/I live in St Johns
//it's the county due east of Clay
