Not since the Presidential campaign of 1964 when Johnson and Humphrey ran against Barry Goldwater have I seen the Democrats stoop so low into the gutter in the quest for power. For those of you who don't remember or were not alive in 1964. I will briefly review the add that ran only one time on National television by the Democrat election committee.It ran immediately before the election. A little girl of six years age or thereabout, was seen in the first frames of the add picking daisy's. In an instant she was blown to smithereens by an apparent atom bomb. The add concluded with words to the effect that if Goldwater was elected this would happen! Johnson won in a walk! Today we have a new low in political advertising lead by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee that includes such ilk as Congressman Ram Emanuel and Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House of Representatives. The Chairman at this time is Congressman Chris Van Hollan of Maryland. The following is a report by a columnist at CNSNEWS.Com.
Susan JonesCNSNews.com Senior EditorSeptember 28, 2007(CNSNews.com) - "As the end of September approaches, so does the end of the third fund-raising quarter, prompting urgent last-minute appeals from political and advocacy groups that use key phrases such as "Karl Rove" and "Islamophobia" to drive liberal outrage -- and attract dollars. One Democratic group(DCCC) on Thursday sent out a fundraising appeal "signed" by Karl Rove. Obsessed by Rove, although Bush adviser Karl Rove left the White House this summer, Democrats are still using his name to raise funds". The letter sent out contained these words: "As my last act in the White House, I asked Dick Cheney if he could help me break into the DCCC and send you this email," "Rove" says in a "parody" issued by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee on Thursday.The DCCC, a group that raises money to elect Democrats to the House, has "Rove" reminiscing about alleged misdeeds of the Bush White House: "For six years the Republicans in Congress let George [Bush], Dick [Cheney] and me get away with every trick in the book. Making up stuff about weapons of mass destruction, revealing the identity of a covert agent to get revenge on her husband, firing US Attorneys who went after Republicans; we did it all. And if Republicans were in power we'd still be getting away with it."Then "Rove" says, "On behalf of Dick Cheney, I order you not to contribute to the DCCC."The message, intended to prompt Democrats to open their wallets, is signed, "Insincerely, Karl Rove," and it's followed by a "P.S." noting that although the message is a parody, "the sentiment is real: don't let Karl and his friends go back on the offensive." When a party lacks any positive platform other than surrender in Iraq and Socialized Medicine with more taxes for all, and more welfare programs for illegals. I guess they are driven into the gutter of character assassination as is this case.  Moveon.org, funded by billionaire George Soros, still smarting over congressional repudiation of its "General Betray Us" ad, MoveOn.org says that Congress -- by failing to force an immediate troop withdrawal -- is not doing its job. The new project invites Americans to send photos of themselves showing "how you feel about the war." Photo submitters also will be invited to record a voice message to Congress, and MoveOn.org Political Action says it will "put together a big unveiling," using the photos and words in an ad campaign and in a message to members of Congress. "We'll make it impossible for them to ignore you," the group promised. It is obvious that Moveon.org has committed themselves to a troop pullout. They have also stepped up their negative campaign against OUR Country's War effort against Islamic radicalism. The following is an except from a press release of Moveon.org. Still smarting over congressional repudiation of its "General Betray Us" ad, MoveOn.org says that Congress --" by failing to force an immediate troop withdrawal -- is not doing its job". The new project invites Americans to send photos of themselves showing "how you feel about the war." Photo submitters also will be invited to record a voice message to Congress, and MoveOn.org Political Action says it will "put together a big unveiling," using the photos and words in an ad campaign and in a message to members of Congress. "We'll make it impossible for them to ignore you," the group promised".If one of the Democrat candidates running for the Presidential nomination wins the White House. MoveOn.org has not commented on the Democrats' refusal to commit themselves to a troop pullout. Despite this they have committed to a campaign which if done during WWII would have been considered treason!
