Crossroads GPS has a new spot up in the Nebraska Senate race against Bob Kerrey.
See it here:
This talks about all the things Kerrey has done in the Senate, and will do if elected to the Senate.
Compare that against Bob Kerrey’s new negative ad out.
See it here:
Note that Kerrey’s isn’t a “comparative” ad. It’s a negative ad.
Kerrey is not making any attempt to tell Nebraskans that his ideas are better. He is simply trying to trash Deb Fischer’s reputation.
And then Kerrey goes on to tell you about part of his war record and business record.
And those are all nice things. We used to eat at Grandmother’s on 90th and Dodge before it became a Walgreens.
But none of that — NONE — tells you that Bob Kerrey would:
Vote to extend ObamaCare
Vote for a single-payer health care plan
Vote for the next kooky cap and trade type plan to “end global warming”
Vote against the partial-birth abortion ban
Vote for higher taxes
He has made it CLEAR that he would vote that way on all of those things.
And Deb Fischer would vote the opposite.
And the ad calling Kerrey an “independent Senator”?
Not only was Kerrey a Democrat Senator, he voted with his party 92% of the time and was the freaking head of the Democrat Senatorial Campaign Committee!
Now there’s your comparison. Pass it on.
And, while we’re at it, here’s another thing that frankly pisses us off about Kerrey and his types in the Democrat party.
Remember last week when Kerrey came out and said that he is now AGAINST the Cap and Trade plan because he finally realized that it would be disastrous to American business?
And Kerrey comes off as, “Well I looked at it and I changed my MIND” (with his voice going an octave higher on that last word).
And we are sort of OK with that concept. If you learn that’s better, and all that.
But that’s not the way he originally said it.
Not only was he for Cap and Trade, but he said that legislators had a “moral” obligation to support it.
A moral obligation.
I.e., if you don’t support Cap and Trade, you’re immoral, said Bob Kerrey.
So here is Bob Kerrey damning you for not supporting his kooky idea, then comes back a few years later and pulls you up from Hell, apparently, if you change your mind?
Or is he joining you in the eternal fire because he thwarts the will of Al Gore?
This is really all you need to know about Cosmic Bob Kerrey’s stances and b.s.
He knows it’s all crap, knows he’s selling crap, and just smiles and laughs it off.
(Oh, and dollars to doughnuts he is the Godfather of the Cornhusker Kickback.)
And one final note about Kerrey’s “Republican” endorsements yesterday:
Mike Yanney? Big ObamaCare supporter.
Game and Parks guy? Never heard of him, and neither have you.
And Vicki Powell? Johanns and Osborne campaign staffer?
Hey we don’t want to get too harsh on Vicki.
But she is a former Democrat, whose husband is a strong Dem, and who burned every Republican bridge she ever had at the end of and after the failed Osborne Governor campaign.
To our knowledge, her involvement in the Republican party the past 6 years has been nil.
Oh, and Sally Fields is also a big Kerrey supporter, so if you’re on Team Sally Fields, Bob is your guy.
On the other hand, Dan Whitney, a/k/a Larry the Cable Guy, a/k/a/ Mater the Tow Truck, a/k/a/ Nebraskan and Nebraska Cornhusker football season ticket holder, endorsed Deb Fischer.
And one more anti-Kerrey spot up.
