I like Juan Williams. I would like to have drinks with Juan Williams. But I would not take advice from Juan Williams:
The Republican National Committee’s first major advertising buy of this midterm election season will come in the shape of attack ads in 12 states against incumbent Democrats who voted for ♡bamaCare!!!.
Conservative activists are following the same strategy. The New York Times reported last week that the billionaire Koch brothers have already helped to air $20 million in advertising against Democrats who supported healthcare reform.
Oh, what a waste of money.
There might be a trend developing here.
Indeed, Americans do have enough things to worry about, but now they have the additional worry that one of the two major political parties is collectively suffering from obsessive-compulsive disorder. Immigration? Iraq? Unemployment benefits? The Republicans, following a year that included dozens of repeal attempts and a government shutdown over Obamacare, are prepared to respond to all with Obamacare, Obamacare and ObamaCare.
Milbank mentioned that Americans’ Number One Issue for 2014 (with a 47% plurality) is the economy.
The economy — which includes jobs you can’t get because of ♡bamaCare!!! and insurance you can’t afford before of ♡bamaCare!!!.
Now would be a good time to remind you that ♡bamaCare!!! was passed without a single Republican vote, and has grown increasingly unpopular with voters. So when Williams and Milbank want the GOP to stop talking about ♡bamaCare!!!, maybe it’s for a very good reason — and not the reason they want you to think.
Look for lots of these helpful little opinion pieces from the Left as the election kicks into gear.
