Disgusting & Reprehensible Democrat Wendy Davis Political Ad Against Gubernatorial Opponent Greg Abbott … Being Condemned as a ‘Historic Low’ (Update: Wendy Davis Defends Ad)
THIS IS WHAT THE DESPERATION AND HIDEOUSNESS OF THE DEMOCRAT PARTY HAS BECOME … EMPTY WHEELCHAIR ATTACK AD BACKFIRES.
Liberal Democrat Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis’ campaign to become the next Governor of Texas is all but over and their desperation and viciousness is coming out. Davis’ most recent political add is being condemned by most all individuals in both parties as it has his a new low for gutter politics. The political ad starts out with the image of a wheelchair, one similar to the one that Abbott is confined to. The ad then gets personal, accusing Abbott of spending his career working against other victims.
“Terrible” … “Offensive” … “Offensive And Nasty And It Shouldn’t Exist” … “Mean-Spirited And Misleading” … “Blow Up In Her Face” … “Whoever Approved It Should Be Fired”
The Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza: “‘A Tree Fell On Greg Abbott. He Sued And Got Millions.’ — Wendy Davis’ New Ad. Um, Terrible.” (Twitter.com, 10/10/14)
BuzzFeed’s Andrew Kaczynski: “This Ad Seems Pretty Desperate From Wendy Davis Campaign.” (Twitter.com, 10/10/14)
This isn’t the first time that the low-life’s in the Wendy Davis campaign have stooped to this level. Legal Insurrection reminds us when the Battleground Texas supporters of Wendy Davis laughed at Greg Abbott being in wheelchair.
Newsbusters: As the segment concluded, the MSNBC panel predictably lamented that the ad could hurt Davis’ political future, as she looks poised to lose her bid for governor of Texas:
MICHAEL TOMASKY: And she should have given more thought, I think, to the reputation she had, even if she was going to lose by 18 points or whatever it is. That event that she had when she did that filibuster, she so galvanized liberals across the country and had such respect and affection from liberals that she jeopardizes probably, to some extent, by doing this.
SUZY KHIMM: Yeah, this is just, if she wants to run for office again, this is definitely going to follow her and it’s the kind of Hail Mary pass that not only might not work but could have consequences for her own future political career.
UPDATE II: Wendy Davis Defends Disgusting Wheelchair ad.
UPDATE III: As if the Optics of the Wheelchair ad were not bad enough … Watch This Wendy Davis Staffer Drag a Disabled Man Across a Stage. Really, that is how you move a disabled individual, drag their chair across the stage? GOOD GRIEF.
Liberal Democrats, Don’t Mess With Texas …
According to a recent UT/TT poll, Republican candidate Greg Abbott has a large lead over Democrat Wendy Davis for the race for the Texas governor. Abbott widened his lead in the Texas gubernatorial race to 11 point over Davis; however, look for this lead to get much higher as it appears from polling data that the GOP is much more energized to vote in Texas than do Democrats. Also, the more that Texans learn of Davis’ extreme positions, the more they will run away.
After what are shaping up to be easy primary wins in March for the leading gubernatorial candidates, Republican Greg Abbott starts the general election race for governor with an 11-point lead over Democrat Wendy Davis, according to the latest University of Texas/Texas Tribune Poll.
Meanwhile, several statewide races on the Republican primary ballot — for lieutenant governor, attorney general and comptroller — appear headed for May runoffs. None of the leaders in those races looks close to the 50 percent support they would need to win next month’s primary outright.

WAPO Poll: Republican Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli Early Lead Over Democrat Terry McAuliffe in Virginia Governor’s Race, 46% – 41%
Six months before election day in the Commonwealth of Virginia and according to a recent WAPO poll, Republican Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli has an early lead over former Democratic National Committee chairman Terry McAuliff for the Virginia Governor’ race, 46% to 41%. Cuccinelli leads among all voters and 51% to 41% among those voters certain to cast a ballot. Cuccinelli is up in the race because he has overwhelming support from the GOP base due to his opposition work against Obamacare. Among all registered voters, Cuccinelli is backed by 95 percent of Republicans, 73 percent of conservatives and 62 percent among white men. In contrast, compared with Obama’s presidential win seven months ago, McAuliffe is badly underperforming among key Democratic constituencies.
Full polling data can be found HERE.
Six months before Election Day, Cuccinelli (R) has a slender 46 to 41?percent edge over McAuliffe (D) among all Virginia voters and a significant 51 to 41?percent lead among those who say they’re certain to cast ballots in November. But those numbers may change before then: The poll found that barely 10 percent say they are following the campaign “very closely” and that nearly half of the electorate says they’re either undecided or could change their minds.
With Virginia’s evolution into a swing state, the race is drawing intense scrutiny as the nation’s lone competitive November matchup so far. McAuliffe has not been able to assemble the coalition that has led Democrats to statewide victories. President Obama prevailed in 2008 and 2012, and Democratic U.S. Sens. Mark Warner and Timothy M. Kaine won in recent years after running as consensus-building moderates and driving the base turnout.
I cannot see Ken Cuccinelli losing to McAuliffe. Then again I cannot even begin to understand how this state voted for Barack Obama in 2012. It is way too early to handicap this, but in an off, off year election with a floundering economy and Obama’s approval rating hitting the skids as a lame duck president. A jazzed up Republican base could push Ciccinelli into the Governor’s mansion.
Is Swing State of New Hampshire Ready for a Republican Gov. and Vote for Romney over Obama? Romney Leads by 3, Lamontagne by 4
It appears that the “Live Free or Die” state is ready to swing Republican.
According to a recent Rasmussen poll, GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney leads Barack Obama 48% to 45%. Obama won NH in 2008 by 9 points, 54% to 45% over McCain. Now he finds himself behind by 3, what a difference four years makes. Polling at 45% is hardly encouraging for an incumbent candidate.
Mitt Romney has now taken the lead in the swing state of New Hampshire.
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in New Hampshire shows Romney with 48% support to President Obama’s 45%. Four percent (4%) prefer some other candidate, and three percent (3%) are undecided.
Also, Republican Ovide Lamontagne finds himself slightly ahead of Democrat Maggie Hassan in the NH governors race, 48% to 44%. In 2008, incumbent Democrat Gov. Lynch defeated his GOP rival by a 70% to 28% margin and won by only 7.6% in 2010. Gov. Lynch is not seeking reelection.
Rasmussen Reports’ first look at New Hampshire’s gubernatorial race since the state’s party primaries finds Republican Ovide Lamontagne slightly ahead of Democrat Maggie Hassan. A new telephone survey of Likely Voters in the Granite State shows Lamontagne earning 48% of the vote, while Hassan picks up 44% support. Two percent (2%) prefer some other candidate, and seven percent (7%) are undecided.
Even though the unemployment rate in the Granite state is lower than the national average, it appears top be going in the wrong direction.
UPDATE I: The Lonely Conservative has linked with a Pennsylvania poll that has a near dead heat between Romney and Obama.
Obama in Wonderland … Democrat Minions Spin Embarassing Recall Victory by Wisconsin Gov. Walker as a Positive for Progressives & Unions … Huh?
Welcome to Obama in Wonderland, where up is down, left is right and if Team Obama are talking … they are lying through their teeth.
After last nights resounding recall election victory by Gov. Scott Walker and Lt. Gov Kleefisch in Wisconsin, Team Obama actually had the audacity to say that Democrats sent a strong message to Walker. Huh? Actually Mr. President, you, Democrats and labor unions were just sent a message. In 2010 Walker defeated Barrett 52% to 47%. In 2012 Walker defeats Barrett by an even larger margin 53% to 46%. So who was sent a strong message Team Obama? It is rather comical that Obama would comment now. Maybe the Obama minions should have Tweeted these comments.
Yes, really America, the recall election was a victory for me!!!
While tonight’s outcome was not what we had hoped for – no one can dispute the strong message sent to Governor Walker. Hundreds of thousands of Wisconsinites from all walks of life took a stand against the politics of division and against the flood of secret and corporate money spent on behalf of Scott Walker, which amounted to a massive spending gap of more than $31 million to $4 million,” said Tripp Wellde, campaign state director.
“It is a testament to all of those individuals who talked to their friends, neighbors, and colleagues about the stakes in this election of how close this contest was. The power of Wisconsin’s progressive, grassroots tradition was clearly on display throughout the run up to this election and we will continue to work together to ensure a brighter future for Wisconsin’s middle class.
I beg to differ with you Obama minions, I think that 53% of voters in Wisconsin dispute your so-called strong message. Just a note to Barack Obama, Democrats, the Left, labor unions and Obama’s mouth pieces … YOU LOST!!!
The Crying Game … Lefty Wingnut Cries Like a Baby to CNN After Huge Union Loss in Wisconsin Recall Election Loss to Gov. Scott Walker … “Democracy Died Tonight”
Didn’t anyone tell the Left moonbats in Wisconsin that there is No Crying in Recall Elections?
Check out the VIDEO below of the liberal emotional meltdown from The Blaze. Wow, after so this is the death of Democracy, eh? You mean the fact that the Left, Democrats and labor unions lost to Gov. Scott Walker in 2010 and then did so again in 2012 by an even larger margin? Dude, as Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch said last night, “This is what democracy looks like”. The people of Wisconsin have spoke not once, but twice.
The Left and labor unions over-reached in a big way and got burned. There should never shave been a recall election. All the unions and the poor sport Leftist Democrats did was cost the Wisconsin tax payers money. To what purpose, because they did not agree with Walker? Sorry, but elections have consequences. An overwhelming majority of Wisconsinites believe that recall elections should be reserved to corruption and major misconduct by politicians, not when a party cops an attitude because they lost.
So why is the dude crying above, because labor unions lost in a major way.The weepy man above might want to recalculate the amount that unions poured into the recall election. According to The Hill it was $10 million.
Organized labor suffered a crushing blow with Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s (R) victory in Tuesday’s recall, a possible sign of their fading power and a worrying result for union supporters ahead of November’s election.
“They picked a fight they weren’t able to win,” said Gary Chaison, a labor expert at Clark University. “This shows them at their weakest. They’ll try to put a happy face on this but this is nothing less than a calamity for them.”
Unions combined to spend more than $10 million on the race and were the driving force behind the recall effort. But even in Wisconsin, long a bastion for organized labor and the birthplace of public employee unions, they couldn’t defeat a governor whose defining achievement was stripping public workers of their collective bargaining rights
TOTAL NON-RECALL … Republicans Gov. Scott Walker, Lt. Gov. Kleefisch and 3 of 4 GOP Senators Win Recall Victories: Scott Fitzgerald, Terry Moulton, Jerry Petrowski … Van Wanggaard Not Yet Called
Tonight in Wisconsin it was a TOTAL “almost” NON-RECALL …
Not only did Governor Scott Walker and Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch survive their recall elections and won handily, so did three of the four Republican state Senators who faced recall elections as well. Republican Wisconsin state Senators Scott Fitzgerald, Terry Moulton and Jerry Petrowski all survived an won their recall elections. They not only won, they won handily. Only the state Senate seat 21 has not been called. With 28% of precincts reporting Van Wanggaard (R) leads John Lehman (D), 60% to 40%. Seeing that Senate seat 21 represents Racine, one that went for Walker over Barrett 63% to 36.5%, it is hard to imagine that Van Wanggaard will not win as well.
UPDATE I: 100% of precincts voting and John Lehman defeats GOP incumbent Van Wanggaard, 51% to 49% … 36255 votes to 35476.
|State Senate Dist. 13 Recall Election|
|>||R-Scott Fitzgerald (I)||43,754||58%|
|State Senate Dist. 21 Recall Election|
|R-Van Wanggaard (I)||16,399||60%|
|State Senate Dist. 23 Recall Election|
|>||R-Terry Moulton (I)||37,639||56%|
|State Senate Dist. 29 Recall Election|
Hey Barack, Tweet on this … Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch took to the stage following her recall election victory and stated, “THIS IS WHAT DEMOCRACY LOOKS LIKE”. Rebecca Kleefisch was the first Lt. Governor ever to have to face a recall election and Kleefisch also made history and became the first Lt. Governor ever to survive and win a recall election.
Democrats, organized labor, public employee unions and the far Left really overplayed their hand in Wisconsin and got burned. Many thought that the recall election was totally uncalled for and unwarranted.
NOW THIS IS WHAT DEMOCRACY LOOKS LIKE!!!
Hat Tip: The Gateway Pundit
“Now this is what democracy looks like,” a jubilant Kleefisch told supporters at a victory rally. “Friends, years from now they will say the campaign to save America began tonight in Wisconsin.”
With 90% of votes counted, Kleefisch (R) 54% - Mitchell (D) 46%.
RNC Chair Priebus Predicts Democratic ‘circular firing squad’ After Scott Walker Recall Election Victory … Barack Obama “Left Democrats at the Altar in Wisconsin When They Needed him Most”
HUGE WIN FOR WALKER, REPUBLICANS AND WISCONSIN … DEVASTATING LOSS FOR OBAMA AND LABOR UNIONS …
Republican National Committee Chair Reince Priebus said during an interview tonight with CNN what many Democrats and staunch union leaders must have been thinking following Gov. Scott Walker recall election victory. Reince Priebus predicted a Democratic ‘circular firing squad’ following the Left’s failure to recall Gov. Walker, a crushing blow to unions and Obama. Speaking of Barack Obama, Priebus said that Barack Obama “left Democrats at the altar in Wisconsin when they needed him most”
Regarding exit polling, I find it a little difficult to believe that Wisconsin would vote back in Scott Walker and then vote for Obama in November 2012. Wisconsin is a microcosm of what is taking place nationally. I am not buying the exit polling that claims that Obama has a double digit lead in WI over Romney. The same exit polling said that this would be a close race and that as CNN reported, the vote was tied. Obviously Democrats were over-polled and the GOP voters were under-polled.
The dynamic that Obama did not come to Tom Barrett’s aid, nor any of the other Democrats in Wisconsin, including union labor will resonate the election cycle. There is no way that Obama can avoid Wisconsin during the recall election and then come back and ask for campaign donations and their vote. But Wisconsin Democrats just learned a painful lesson regarding Obama. Obama is all about Obama.
Wisconsin just became a battleground state in the 2012 Presidential election. If Democrats and unions act like poor losers in the second election of Scott Walker, it will surely play poorly with Independents and reasonable Democrats. Scott Walker has stated he wants to move Wisconsin forward. That will play well for Romney in 2012, a successful GOP governor who has made Wisconsin better. So who would they vote for in November, Obama and his failed policies or Romney, who will help get America going the same way as Scott Walker did? Sorry, Obama is in trouble in Wisconsin in 2012.
