Green Room

NRSC ad asks: Are all of these liars, Senator Reid?

posted at 1:31 pm on February 28, 2014 by

Guy Benson got a nice scoop at our sister site on a new ad from the National Republican Senatorial Committee highlighting Harry Reid’s attack on people who “dare to complain about ObamaCare.” Consider this just the first salvo in the breach opened by Reid, as I described earlier today:

Be sure to read Guy’s piece again, because it’s going to establish a baseline on what should be a torrent of rebuttals. The NRSC needs to cut this down to a 60-second spot and start putting it on the air in places like Arkansas, North Carolina, and Louisiana, but also Minnesota and New Hampshire. It should run in every Senate race no matter how safe the incumbent Democrat might be.

Just when I think you can’t out-stupid Harry Reid, he goes and outdoes himself. And the Dem base eats it up.

cut this down to a 60-second spot

Great ad. Time to use it in all Senate races. Make that liar reid a minority member.

Run this ad everywhere. Powerful stuff.

Why wouldn’t it have the clip of Reid actually saying it?

That would be more effective than a news anchor on Fox paraphrasing him.

Because the NRSC isn’t really going to cut an ad for this.

They will use it to drum up donations and that is all.

It is a scam just like the guy who made the islam mini-flick.

Hear, hear…!!

It doesn’t matter how many people they get to refute Harry Reid’s statement. He set the narrative, so YES, he does think all those people are liars. He can’t backtrack on it now.
And there are ignorant morons who will believe him.

FlareCorran on February 28, 2014 at 2:27 PM

Good point. I agree with you on that. The ignorant morons I spoke of above will just write it off as something that Fox News made up. After all, they can’t be bothered to research it for themselves, can they now?!

Sterling Holobyte on February 28, 2014 at 3:43 PM

Harry’s actually been dead for years, and it’s time to bury him. He stinketh.

This came up on another thread, and it seems that there are “rules” that forbid then usage of film taken in the senate (or house) chamber for political purposes. Don’t know if that’s the case, maybe someone could advise if that is so.

I’ve been watching; rules are for suckers, and are completely optional. Do it anyway, and grind that bastard into dust with it.

How about a spot with a Whoopi Goldberg lookalike defending Reid: “He’s a liar, but he’s not a liar liar!”

PersonFromPorlock on February 28, 2014 at 5:30 PM

…napalm it!

So once again the GOP plays by the “rules”, something tells me the democrats wouldn’t pause a nanosecond to adhere to the “rules”.

This is a horrible ad. NEED NEED NEED to show the video of Reid on the Senate floor actually calling them liars. The way this is produced, many of the idiots seeing this will think Megan Kelly is reaffirming that they really are liars. Why oh why can’t Republicans actually produce an effective ad?

Once again congrats to Nevada Republicans “principled” stance on electing the one person that couldn’t beat this hump last election cycle.

It needs a tag line:

If you like your Senator, you can keep your Senator.
