Congressman Lee Terry has a new web-ad up on YouTube.
See it here:
It would be easy to see how this 40 second spot could be trimmed down to a 30 second spot for broadcast over the air.
These type of ads are usually good, cheap and effective. Looking forward to see who uses them after Labor Day.
On the Lee Terry for Congress front, he has a new flyer going out to seasoned citizens:
Note each point contrasted to his opponent’s position.
And to continue on the theme, here are a couple of web articles on, and related to, Terry.
The first, a bio/campaign review, more or less at Human Events.
The second was sent to us by a reader who noticed Terry’s name lumped into an article on Gateway Pundit.
It is based on that survey in May of 2009 from The Hill — asking Congresspersons which Members they found to be the most partisan or the easiest to work with from the opposing party.
Terry, you may remember, made the list from Dems as to one of the better Republicans to work with.
Now this article goes on to slam the GOPers who made that list as turn-coats of some sort.
By marking which Republicans that Democrats think are “easy to work with” we can see which Republicans are not Republicans but are instead an ever hated RINO (Republican In Name Only).
There is only one reason why Democrats would love these folks: it’s because they are reliable votes against their own party.
Which is stupid.
Here’s the goofy thing about the analysis of this year and a half old list:
Terry is a main target of the DCCC this year.
And he consistently votes conservatively.
So now because he’s not also an asshole, Gateway Pundit thinks he should be voted out?
Well, if they are looking for someone who no one likes, that will vote consistently with the Democrats, we can think of someone they should support…
By the way, MSNBC recently came out with a list of 64 House seats likely to flip.
Nine of these were Republicans.
Lee Terry’s seat, was not one of them.
And for those of you outside of Omaha, we see that 3rd District Democrat candidate Rebekah Davis is just itching to debate Congressman Adrian Smith everywhere.
And Smith, in the mean time, is keeping up a busy schedule throughout the (huge) district.
But only problem with Davis is that she hasn’t proven herself to be a credible candidate by any means tests.
Her FEC report shows that she has raised a measly $30K and has only $2,000 COH.
If she can’t get some decent support from within her own party, there is no reason for Smith to take the time to debate her. Heck, the other guy who wants in the race can probably scrounge up two grand. Should he be in the debates as well?
Is there going to come a day when some Democrat from the third wants to work their way up the political ladder before running for Congress?
Finally, you noticed that SecDef Robert Gates announced that he will retire next year.
And our Chuck Hagel news feed just went off again…
