Skip to comments.Koch group ties La. Sen. Landrieu to Gruber
Posted on 12/03/2014 12:58:48 PM PST by Cincinatus' Wife
In what is likely a sign of things to come in 2016, the conservative Koch brothers-backed group Americans For Prosperity released an ad on Wednesday seeking to tie Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) to controversial ObamaCare adviser Jonathan Gruber.
Gruber made headlines earlier this year for saying it was the stupidity of the American voter that helped the Obama administration pass the Affordable Care Act.
The ad says Landrieu repeated President Obamas ObamaCare Lie of the Year that if you liked your healthcare plan you could keep it, before launching into the Gruber attack.
An ObamaCare architect bragged about deceiving Americans to pass the law, the narrator says before cutting to a mash-up of Gruber making his controversial remarks.
How can Mary Landrieu fight for Louisiana and still support the ObamaCare deception? the narrator asks.
The ad cuts to Landrieu saying: I would vote for it again and Ive said that and Im not backing up from it, and if they dont like it they can un-elect us, Im up for reelection right now.
Landrieu trails Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) badly in their Dec. 6 runoff race for Senate.
At their Monday debate, Cassidy sought to tie Landrieu to Gruber. The candidates each had an opportunity to ask the other a question of their own, and Cassidy asked Landrieu when she knew the administration was being deceitful in passing ObamaCare, as suggested by the recently uncovered remarks.
I dont read what Jonathan Gruber says, I dont even talk to Jonathan Gruber, Landrieu shot back. I talk to my constituents.
Landrieu argued that the law is not perfect and needs to be improved but said its a better system than what we had, and said Republicans were being hypocritical because the law was based on conservative principles put forth by the Heritage Foundation and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R).
Landrieu extremely disappointed with DSCC "BATON ROUGE, La. -- Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) lobbed a barb at the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Tuesday, saying they effectively abandoned her after the Nov. 4 midterm election.
"I am extremely disappointed in the Democratic Senatorial [Campaign] Committee. I've said that. You know, they just walked away from this race," Landrieu said in response to a Washington Post question about Democratic groups mainly staying on the sidelines during the runoff. She made her remarks after a rally here just steps from City Hall.
The DSCC canceled its television ad reservations shortly after the Nov. 4 midterm election in which Democrats lost control of the Senate."...............
Was I asleep for 20 years? When did Romney become a conservative? And why didn’t anyone tell me! *&^% !
I see what you did there! ;^}
Holy Moly, the Eevil Koch brothers are almost as popular with the ‘rats as Dick Cheney...
President Barack Obama phoned in Monday for an under-the-radar call with Landrieu, party organizers, volunteers and other grassroots supporters across Louisiana, according to a spokeswoman for the Louisiana Democratic Party.
Obama said Landrieu "has been an outstanding advocate on behalf of Louisiana working families every step of the way," according to a state party tweet on Monday.
The lack of publicity for the call -- it wasn't advertised to press or the public outside of a few tweets that were picked up by the Washington Examiner -- underscores just how toxic the President remains for Landrieu.".........
Exactly, adieu Landrieu. I don’t need one thing more to make up my mind how to vote. I have been waiting for this opportunity.We told her what would happen if she voted for obamacare. She told us if we didn’t like it we could vote her out - guess what! Out Out dam landrieu!
One thing though. What is truly amazing about Mary Landrieu, IMHO, is that fact that she has been able to hold the US SENATE seat in LA for 18 years with a voting record as liberal as hers.
Be sure to keep plenty of Liquid Plumber on hand when you flush you Loo on Saturday.
She has a base in New Orleans - large, all black and solid democrat. But they can’t help her this time. Finally, she did something EVERYONE disagreed with. And, she is as good a liar and the rest of them. One of her campaign commercials I took to task and googled the information and it was a lie. That really disgusted me.
Should be called “Grubbels”©
Auf Weidersehen und danke,
Er, wait a minute. That was Landru. Nevermind..
