NRCC Launches Ad Campaign Targeting "Moderate" Dems

The NRCC is targeting newly elected "moderate" Democrats through radio and internet ads that tie into a website, The Real Democrat Story, and blog. Democrats are fond of claiming a mandate as a result of the 2006 elections, but in reality they would not have won if not for recruiting moderate and semi-conservative Democrats to run in key districts. Those freshmen moderates did not run on the liberal agenda Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are now trying to push through Congress and this is one way to let voters know what their representatives are doing in Washington.

This is pretty smart of them. After they've run off all the conservative voters they'll need to find them somewhere.

The Democrats won because of the Republican party's position on Iraq. Unfortunately for the Republicans they did not get the message, so it will be delivered to them again in '08.

Historians in the future will no doubt puzzle over why the Republican Party blindly followed a "leader" with such evident and demonstrated shortcomings on his policies at home and abroad.

It is clear to every one in the world Republicans, that you are about to loose the White House, and control of Congress for a generation thank's to your unconditional support of the most stupid man ever to become President in our Country.

To call Bush a retrograde ignorant does not even start to adress the depth of his mental shortcomings and over all dishonesty.

You wanted Bush for a second term? .... You got it
You wanted to continue the war ? .... You got it.
You wanted to insult the overwhelming majority of Americans that disgree with your "policies", if one can call your mess in Iraq a "policy" ? ........................ You got it.

Hey Republicans you won!! You got everything you asked for !!

Now let's see what you do with it on your way out the door for the next twenty years.

Be careful what you wish Republicans... You just might get it. Wiser words were never spoken.

R's are in big trouble in '08... They're having fundraising trouble. Iraq is in flames. You will see Republican candidates downplaying their party affiliation. It's that bad.

Those freshmen moderates did not run on the liberal agenda

They did, actually. You're working from an outdated partisan template. The freshmen (D)s are farther to the left on economic issues than (D)s have been in decades. And many ran on a timetable platform for Iraq. By contrast, they're more socially conservative than many (D)s, and that's why they were considered moderate.

Do your homework.

Lorie Byrd:

I don't know which specific freshman representatives you are talking about, but those in southern and other red states, including Heath Shuler in my state of NC, did not run as liberals. Nancy Pelosi hid out the final week or two before the election for goodness sake! Heath Shuler is still trying to convince North Carolina voters that he is conservative, speaking recently at a conservative leadership conference I attended in Raleigh with just about the most conservative attendees you can imagine. He got pilloried by NC Dems for doing so, but evidently he felt the need to associate with conservatives here in the Tarheel state. Which freshman Dems are you talking about? I didn't say every single Dem that ran for the House ran as a conservative, but the overall image they put forward in campaign ads, etc., was certainly not a liberal one, but was of moderates.

Zelsdorf Ragshaft III:

If all you brilliant political scientists are correct, then why is it that we have a senator Joe not a senator Ned? Jeez, I though it was about Republican corruption and lack of ethics. Notice the timing of the Foley affair. If you won a fuck mandate, override the veto.

Rob LA Ca.:

The Democrats are complete frauds , lying frauds to be exact. Queen of Hypocrisy Piglosi hiding for obvious reasons as the democrat Media was in full smear mode and the rest of the dirty despicable democrats performed like they always do.

Democrats were throwing out everything position possible against President Bush. It wasn't until long after the election did they get together and agree to stick with one schtik and pretty much added anything they had up for a vote to it.

Another moron talking out his ass supporting his criminal party of perpetual fraud.

"Now let's see what you do with it on your way out the door for the next twenty years."

It must suck having to lie and deceive people in order to get votes not to mention voter fraud and buying votes. The Rats are proud criminals.

Ah. So that's why they (including Shuler) ran against free trade and social security privatization and for benchmarks for the Iraq War.

Thanks for clearing that up.

Look Rob sice all you got is insults let me repeat this for you and you alone.

Maybe the author, "Lorie Byrd," realized that the dems weren't moderate and that's why there are those "mysterious" "i-question-the-validity" quotation "marks" around the word moderate in the "title?"

You have a false premise... (Below threshold)
Abraham Lincoln:

You have a false premise. Those moderate democrats were not elected based on anything to do with their agenda. They were elected because they are not Republicans. They were elected because they are not associated with the mess in Iraq, the mess of Katrina, the corruption scandals, etc. As long as the freshman Dems don't screw up as bad as the Bush team, as long as the mess in Iraq and the corruption scandals stay in the news, those Dems are sitting pretty.
I am fond of saying that George W. Bush is a reverse Midas. Everything he touches turns to turds. The thing he is currently turning to turds is the Republican Party. Now I personally don't believe Republicans are inherently evil or bad or stupid. There are some I'd be happy to vote for. But I do believe Repubs are having trouble wrapping their minds around what massive train wreck the Bush adminstration has been. I do believe Bush has messed up the Repubs so bad it'll be a generation before they get back on their feet. A generation during which the Dems will be free to commit their special brand of havoc. I think Bush is ushering in a new era of "yellow dog Democrats." Personally, I'd trade the present reality for one in which Bush listened to his generals, stayed out of Iraq and started an era of Repub dominance. But since the Repubs all went over the Iraq cliff like lemmings I'll dance with the Dems.

Desperate Communist Rats,... (Below threshold)
Rob LA Ca.:

Desperate Communist Rats, never can they actually campaign on merit. Oh ya , it's because they are all talk and no action. It's no wonder the MSM must carry their water because without them they are nothing. Then there is Immoral hollywood and the the Liberal professors and now even grade school teachers are indoctrinating kids at an even more early age.

The democrats have nothing at all to offer this Country and should not even be considered Americans. They are despicable criminal frauds and traitors.

This is why the democrats cannot run on what they are really about and always have to create scandals and deceive the American Public like they did in 2006.

Printable Version

The communist goals were entered into the Congressional record by Albert Herlong, Jr. (a Floridian who served in Congress from 1949-69).

1) US acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

2) US willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

3) Develop the illusion that total disarmament by the US would be a demonstration of "moral strength."

4) Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

5) Extension of long term loans to Russia and Soviet Satellites.

6) Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

7) Grant recognition of Red China, and admission of Red China to the UN.

8) Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the Germany question by free elections under supervision of the UN.

9) Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the US has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

10) Allow all Soviet Satellites individual representation in the UN.

11) Promote the UN as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the UN as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo).

12) Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

13) Do away with loyalty oaths.

14) Continue giving Russia access to the US Patent Office.

15) Capture one or both of the political parties in the US.

16) Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions, by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

17) Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for Socialism, and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers associations. Put the party line in text books.

18) Gain control of all student newspapers.

19) Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

20) Infiltrate the press. Get control of book review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.

21) Gain control of key positions in radio, TV & motion pictures.

22) Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all form of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings," substitute shapeless, awkward, and meaningless forms.

23) Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."

24) Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.

25) Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography, and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio and TV.

26) Present homosexuality, degeneracy, and promiscuity as "normal, natural, and healthy."

27) Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a "religious crutch."

28) Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the grounds that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."

29) Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

30) Discredit the American founding fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man".

31) Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of "the big picture": Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

32) Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture - - education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

33) Eliminate all laws or procedures, which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

34) Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

35) Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

36) Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

37) Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

38) Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand or treat.

39) Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

40) Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

41) Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

42) Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special interest groups should rise up and make a "united force" to solve economic, political, or social problems.

43) Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

44) Internationalize the Panama Canal.

45) Repeal the Connally Reservation so the US can not prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction over nations and individuals alike.

The party of perpetual frauds. Now you know why.

Answer to Rob La Ca<p... (Below threshold)

Answer to Rob La Ca

Ok Rob, since you hate Democrats (your fellow Americans) so much you might want to go live in another country. This one thank god has plenty of Democrats and Republicans that are still willing to COEHXSIST.

Besides Rob Democrats are in control of Congress, and since the Republicans still back Bush, they probably want to accompany him into permanent retirement after 08.

For all the terrible things that you say the Democrats do to this country.... Let's not forget that you do have a country to live in freedom, because so many of us Americans are willing to put up and even fight for people like you.... And some of the people that fight for you are even Democrats!!! What a concept, what a radical discovery!!!

Partisanship can be a healthy thing, or in your case a real bad problem.

Gil, that list was ASSEMBLE... (Below threshold)
The Exposer:

Gil, that list was ASSEMBLED by a pro-American Democrat Congressman, before it was finally and completely hijacked by the hate-America pro-Jihadist Stalinist left. It's terrifying to realize many of those goals have been accomplished, by the Democrat party.

Answer to the exposer.... (Below threshold)

Answer to the exposer.

Let me put you to the test my friend.

If you are saying that Democrats are traitors to this country then why don't you go to the police, or better the FBI and formaly attempt to charge them of beeing pro Jihadist and Stalinist AMerica haters? You can start wiith you neighbor or a member of your family.

After YOU are taken to jail, or a mental hospital and sued by your neighbor please come back to this blog and tell me how it all went down.

I would hope you people have outgrown your infantile propensity to attribute your shortcomings to others, but some of us can never grow up. Nothing like having "Americans" like you for keeping our Country together.

By the way Exposer, what do we do with the Democrats fighting for you in Iraq?
