I come back after two weeks or so of computer issues and family stuff, and I am pleased to see that so much in the blogosphere has not changed…BVBL is still amped on immigration issues, NLS continues to love Twitter, Too Conservative is back, and RK is feverishly spinning for Judy Feder.
As paid staff for Ms. Feder, Lowell can do no less…but his most recent post shows how desperate she has become.
RK accuses Congressman Wolf of breaking a pledge to on negative campaigning-then fails to show when the pledge was made. Typically you back up assertions like this…but apparently things are now so bad the Federistas have decided to make things up and claim them as fact.
Then there is that negative thing…if you quote someone’s record, how can that be negative? Ms. Feder as part of congressional testimony said “Please, raise my taxes”. This is the position of someone who is going to cut taxes? She was a prime architect of the failed Hillary Clinton health plan-something she somehow fails to mention on the campaign trail.
So, if quoting someone’s record is “going negative”, then how is it that the Federistas can justify the last month of so of cable tv ads they have run that are-using their apparent definition-negative attacks?
The RK folks would have you believe that this is desperation borne out of Feder pulling even in fundraising…but even there they are spinning. What they aren’s telling you is that at the last report Feder has 650K cash on hand…while Frank Wolf tops a million as they head into the most critical part of the campaign. Part of raising big money is effective spending, and it would seem that the Wolf campaign is right where they want to be.
Oh, and the last contributions, the 48 hour notice sort of things? Wolf 31K, Feder 16K.
Ms. Feder’s staff is failing to defend her record, way behind in cash on hand, asserting claims made by her opponent without offering verification…are these the tactics of a campaign that is pleased with where it stands two weeks out from election day?
You can draw your own conclusion.
