Americans for Prosperity has a new ad out critical of New York’s Bob Kerrey. See it here:
The ad riffs off of Kerrey’s “Welcome back Bob!” ads, pointing out how much more liberal he is after living in the West Village of New York City for the past 12 years.
According to Politico, AFP will spend $274,000 on the spot on broadcast and cable television through April 7th.
The Daily Beast runs a fawning interview of Kerrey, where Cosmic Bob corrects the Republican Party that he lives in the “West Village” not “Greenwich Village” in New York City.
Ah well then. Bob has become very adept at telling people all of his different addresses lately, so we can understand. Except we note that Kerrey must not have corrected them when they wrote that…
It was, naturally enough, a tough call for Kerrey to uproot his family from Manhattan.
…because Kerrey’s wife and child are firmly planted in New York City (the West Village) with no plans to move them to Nebraska.
Of course, don’t expect Kerrey to change his liberal NYC ways, simply because he is staying at a friend’s house in Omaha. Kerrey says…
“I’m going to tell the truth as I see it.”
And Kerrey himself says, his view on the world has changed for the far more liberal since he moved to New York.
In the end, Kerrey says he wants to “forge common cause with Republicans.” And in the next breath he notes how difficult it is to “break with your caucus“.
Har. Tell us about it Bob.
Look, we know a much, much easier way for Nebraskans to forge with Republicans.
We got a chuckle out of Kerrey campaign manager Paul Johnson’s incredulousness that Jon Bruning is going to have a fundraiser in Washington, DC while he is there for the ObamaCare Supreme Court arguments.
Let’s see. Bruning will be meeting with fellow AG’s and viewing the arguments in the case he helped initiate. Good. Glad he is there. (And not traveling on the taxpayer’s dime.)
And let us look at Bob Kerrey’s schedule next week…
Bob will be in… Washington, DC! Meeting with Nebraskans and soybean growers and cattle ranchers?
He will be attending his own $1,000 a person ($2,500 for a PAC) fundraiser, hosted by liberal Senators…
Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Dick Durbin (D-IL), Patty Murray (D-WA) and a cavalcade of other liberals who love ObamaCare, hate the Keystone pipeline and will do their best to see that the policies and politics of the last four years stay in place.
Funny Johnson didn’t mention that in the press release.
(Hey, how come New York’s Chuck Schumer is on the list, but Nebraska’s Mike Johanns isn’t? Oh well…)
Kerrey also notes in that Daily Beast article how great a job he thinks Barack Obama has done.
You know, like giving his stamp of approval to the southern part of the Keystone XL Pipeline — which does not need a Presidential stamp of approval. The only part that needs an Obama OK is the part that crosses the Canadian border. (Still waiting, we are.)
But the pro-pipeline folks in Cushing, Oklahoma let the President know how THEY feel about he pipeline. About a hundred and fifty showed up as the President’s motorcade zipped past, to show their support for the Keystone XL. See it here (you can feel free to kill the audio, unless you are dying to hear a woman scream “Keystone Yes!” about 80 times…) :
The people in that video do not exactly look like the Occupy protesters, do they? More like people who WANT jobs.
Have a great weekend folks!
