People are talking about all of those ads promoting Renee Ellmers hitting the airwaves in the Second District from something called Americans for a Conservative Direction. I don’t believe I’ve ever heard so many lies packed into a 30 second time period. It’s an impressive feat. In fact, you can click here to hear from the Ellmers campaign consultant who helped craft this ad.
“A Conservative Fighter.” Really? When? Here she is, just five months into her first term, haughtily selling out her Tea Party supporters on the debt ceiling. And then there was the vote to reauthorize the boondoggle known as the Ex-Im Bank. Then there was the time she ridiculed and fought Ted Cruz’s efforts to defund ObamaCare. Oh, yeah. She’s fighting conservatives. Not fighting for conservative principles. I get it.
“Fighting to Cut the Debt.” Really? Was that what she was doing when she voted multiple times to go along with raising the debt ceiling, and then questioned our intelligence for daring to question those votes? Hmmm. Maybe this was another typo. Maybe they meant that she’s “fighting efforts to cut the debt.”
“Stop the wasteful spending in Washington.” Really? I don’t think so. I think they’ve got her confused with somebody else here.
“Working hard to secure the border and fix our broken immigration system.” Any time you hear that someone is doing that, it should be taken as code for fully supporting the amnesty proposals Obama and the Democrats and the McConnell-Boehner Republicans are trying to shove down our throats. Americans for a Conservative Direction is a front group for the Mark Zuckerberg-led Super PAC trying to get amnesty legislation passed. Zuckerberg is the billionaire liberal head of Facebook leading a coterie of other wealthy Silicon Valley lefties trying to cram statist stuff like this down our gullets.
Yep. Renee is such a fan of securing the border that she screamed like a lunatic and rained holy hell down upon a delegation of constituents trying to persuade her to secure the border and abandon amnesty.
I’m not buying what Americans for a Conservative Direction is selling. And neither should you.
