Washington Post: Republicans Are Running Mean Ads Against Democrats Or Something

This is completely shocking. No one ever runs criticism of the opposing political party. Not ever!

GOP war room blasts endless stream of criticism at Democrats, with Warren its latest target

The Republican Party’s research director, Mike Reed, found out about Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s DNA test before he got out of bed Monday. From his bedroom, the GOP attack machine started whirring.

At the White House, President Trump and his aides initially downplayed the news. Adviser Kellyanne Conway told reporters “that doesn’t interest me” and Trump said “Who cares?” when asked about the new evidence that the Massachusetts Democrat had Native American heritage.

But the Republican story began to change at 9:46 a.m., when Reed blasted out his first email to thousands of reporters and allies, laying out new talking points for his side — that Warren’s test result showed a “minuscule” percentage of native heritage in her DNA and would not end the political problems that had beset her since opponents suggested she had advanced her career by claiming such ancestry. (snip)

And it was another trophy for a team of about 60 GOP researchers, bookers and attack dogs who spend their time churning out the ammunition that conservative media and Trump supporters use daily to pummel the president’s foes.

The relentless stream of carefully curated — and sometimes misleading — political hits has been throwing Democrats off message for months while steadily stoking the daily fires of conservative outrage that power Trump’s political movement.

OMG, this is horrible! Now do the Democrat war room.

See, the problem here is that Democrats are not used to Republicans fighting back hard in essentially the same manner as Democrats. Though no one has run a commercial where granny is literally being thrown off a cliff.

“Democrats don’t have the benefit of the conservative media echo chamber emanating out from Fox News, so it will always look a bit different on our side,” he added. (that’s Josh Schwerin of the ultra-leftist Priorities USA)

Right, right, they don’t have NBC, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, CNN (in every airport), NY Times, LA Times, Time, USA Today, Newsweek, etc and so on. Oh, and the Washington Post.

Democratic consultants expect the public attacks on Trump over social media to increase dramatically after the midterm. “Come November 7, it will fall on the shoulders of the Democratic Party to run interference for its field of potential nominees,” Brad Woodhouse, who was the communications director for the party in the 2012 cycle, said in an email. “Daily, relentless and no holds barred.”

Huh. So…..Dems do it too, and it’s no big deal?

That point was underscored when the Boston Globe, which broke news of the DNA test, corrected its own story to report that Warren’s test suggested that as little as 1/1024 of her genome might come from Native American heritage.

“We went from shrugged shoulders to raised eyebrows,” Kelly Conway said. “What our rapid response has been able to do is break through the noise.”

And it’s about damned time that Republicans are fighting back in a sustained manner.

    From ’49 to ’52 I lived in Alexandria. I saw what was happening. I read the Post. by ’50 I realized that either my eyes were telling me lies; or, the America haters at the Post were publishing America hate as “news”. I believed my eyes 68 years ago, still do. The Post has new owners, but they hate Americans as much as the old owners did. Publishers has a diff name but the hate mongering is precisely the same!

  2. MrToad says:

    How tone deaf can the press be when Facebook announced their own “Election War Room” (complete with a sign & everything) just this week? Are they hoping people don’t notice these things?

    It’s hard to believe how much Trump has thrown the democrats so far off their game.

    Politics ain’t beanbag.

    Being shameless, the Repubs are expert politicians – they own America right now – White House, state-run news network (FOX), Senate, House, Supreme Court, statehouses – and yet THEY’RE the victims, LOL.

    Now that they own America, their actual agenda is revealed – gut Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, repeal the ACA, eliminate coverage of pre-existing conditions, more tax cuts for the rich and for corporations, abandon the states ravaged by natural disasters, followed by more tax cuts for the rich. And sub rosa, they are consolidating their power by usurping the opposition vote.

    Critics may blame tRump but these have been the aspirational objectives of the NuGOP for a long time. The working classes (serfs) to serve the wealthy (lords) – the GOP are the lords’ vassals, dominating the serfs for their lords. tRump is a symptom not the cause.

    • formwiz says:

      Serfs, vassals, and lords? Right out of the third sub-basement of the Kremlin, 1935.
      Little Jeffery doesn’t get it.

      People want IdiotCare and all its mess repealed. People love tax cuts.

      I’ll bet Jeffery thought it was cool when the Demos owned America and ran ads like the little girl picking daisies as a nuke went off.

      He must think everyone is as stupid as he is.

      • Jethro says:

        Lil Buttercup,

        What people want is the cheaper, better, universally accessible healthcare that candidate Barnum tRump promised.

        According to conservative RealClearPolitics poll of polls regarding healthcare, 50% approve of the current law and 40% oppose it.


        That’s why Repub candidates NOW are running ad after ad lying explaining how they FAVOR making drug companies cover pre-existing conditions. Voters are not THAT dumb.

        Regarding tax cuts, Americans are evenly divided. Certainly the top 50% approve (LOL) but the bottom 50% who see little of it do not.

        That’s why the Repub candidates are mum on tax cuts, as they rely on the votes of those they screw over repeatedly. Voters are not THAT dumb time and again.


        When the working classes finally see the NuGOP for what it’s become, it will not be pretty. We’re not sure the Repubs can suppress the votes fast enough to prevent what’s about to happen.

        • formwiz says:

          No, they liked what they had in health care until the Lefties loused it up.

          According to conservative RealClearPolitics

          RCP is Conservative? Says who, besides you, of course?

          All RCP does is take the rigged polls that are out there and averages them. Big whoop.

          And would you care to link some of these ads because I haven’t seen any?

          When the working classes finally see the NuGOP for what it’s become, it will not be pretty. We’re not sure the Repubs can suppress the votes fast enough to prevent what’s about to happen.

          Oooohhh, threats.

          Actually, the working classes have seen what’s going on. It’s why they voted Trump in ’16 and why they’re not voting R this year.

          • Jethro says:

            Yep, tRump got only 3 million fewer votes than his opponent!

            You see losing an election as a “threat”. The once proud Republicans have become a collection of whiny little victims.

            Actually, the working classes have seen what’s going on. It’s why they voted Trump in ’16 and why they’re not voting R this year.

            We agree! The working classes are not voting R this year.

          Man your comments are really showing desperation, and stupidity. I was not aware that drug companies do not cover preexisting conditions, or any condition. As to insurance covering this, that is present and will not go away, no matter who wins. But in general, Obama care sucks, despite how people like it as patients are not getting care they need. But you would not understand that. Now say something stupid how I am only interested in getting more money, I am retired.

          Then you go on and on about taxes and never understand that the desensitized really does not pay income tax as the upper 10% pay almost all.

          We will win in November and keep winning , MAGA.

  4. david7134 says:

    Don’t know how kindle put in desentized, but it is supposed to be average citizen. And Jeff I am not desensitized to the average individual, you are.

  5. formwiz says:

    Poor little Jeffery.

    He still thinks everybody loves Zippy and the Choom Gang, not to mention that wonderful healthcare nobody wants back.

    And he thinks he’s fooling anybody with his talk how the working classes (good Commie lingo, there) are going to vote Democrat. Trump put it succinctly with JobsNotMobs, but little Jeffery thinks they want mobs.

    He also thought they would side with the mob that tried to smear Brother Bret and he said how the public would turn if he was confirmed.

    What’s it they’re calling it? Oh, yes, Kavanaugh Backlash. And it looks like it’s going to carry the Rs right through the elections.

    tRump got only 3 million fewer votes than his opponent!

    No, he got 4 million more. 7 million fraudulent votes cast by your pals. Wasn’t enough.

    Just like you.

    • david7134 says:

      I heard several cemeteries voted for Hillary the crook.

    • Jethro says:

      Sweet Little Buttercup,

      7 million fraudulent votes cast

      As we’ve pointed out many times, much of what the Cons believe to be true, is not. Even The Don’s crooked commission couldn’t pull that one off.

      Bart McDrunkface is a reformed drunk (we hope) and serial abuser. The backlash is not as you think.

      • Liljeffyatemypuppy says:

        I don’t think the little colored fella should be casting aspersions and calling others serial abusers, right grandpa?

  6. Jl says:

    “Certainly the top 50% approve but the bottom 50% who see little of it do not.” Try and follow along, J. The top 50 pay about 97% of all fed. income taxes, the bottom 50 pay about 3%. So there’s “little to see” obviously because they pay so little. Duh.
    To in effect get something back one would have had to give something to begin with. Over your head?

    • Jethro says:

      But I thought the tax cuts were to benefit the working classes.

      So you admit the tax cuts were to reward the wealthy. That’s progress.

      Hoist with your own petard?

  7. Jl says:

    Where did I say that? I stated facts- feel free to refute them if you can. Good luck
