Warren Targeted By Rove, Brown By The League of Conservation Voters [VIDEO]

Warren Targeted By Rove, Brown By The League of Conservation Voters [VIDEO]

Crossroads GPS, a Karl Rove run conservative superPAC, allegedly is taking a break from running commercials attacking President Barack Obama.  Instead, they are taking on a new target — Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren.

According to an email sent out by the Warren campaign, the action group has planned an ad buy worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, all focused on helping ensure that Warren doesn’t win the Massachusetts senate seat.  The ad links Elizabeth Warren to the “Occupy Wall Street” movement, and says she associates with “extreme left-wing protesters.”

But Warren isn’t the only one being targeted by outside interest groups. Incumbent Republican Senator Scott Brown is also feeling the heat, with the League of Conservation Voters running a new ad pointing out the Senator’s donations from Big Oil, and asking him to stop voting for tax breaks to support the industry.

“Will someone tell me where some people are getting the idea that OWS is consists of violent, dangerous protesters with "aggressive and nasty behavior [whatever that means]" I don't watch Fox "News" (and wouldn't if you held a gun to my head) but is this where it's coming from?”

The far right shills, FAUX, Limbaugh, Glen Beck, the mythical “Liberal Media”, that is actually corporate owned etc.

“You are making a queen-sized fool of yourself. Repeating lies doesn't make them true. And ironically, everything you've tried to blame on OWS so far is oddly similar to what your beloved Tea Party has actually been doing since its inception. Project much?”

Well said MC.

“Too bad for Rove that Elizabeth Warren is running in a well educated state. His money is worthless, but what the heck let him waste it.”

Yes, and it’s good for the economy too. :D won’t it just be way Cosmic Justice if all this money the Fright Right are using to slander oponants boosts the economy and in their pea-brain minds makes Obama look good. Maybe it will make their heads explode.

“NO, I do NOT believe that it is the homeowner's fault for not working hard enough. My very hard-working son bought a home a couple of months before the big crash, using ALL of his money to pay the down payment & closing costs, only to lose it all & be stuck overnight with a home valued $40,000 less than what he paid for it!”

So who do you blame for your sons loss? This is just one issue that OWS are protesting.

Rose L.
“But just because someone making $20,000 a year DECIDES to give birth to 4 children does not mean that OTHER people should have to support those children (so I am certainly NOT for the child-tax credit).”
You sound like a “love the fetus, hate the child” thinker. I have no problem with the child tax credit. Even tho I don’t have children and never will, I see no reason to punish ppl for having children if they “choose” (even if the choice wasn't theirs) to have them.

“In Reality Land, the "truth" that leftists speak of is the belief in their own superiority. Their idea of "truth" is whatever THEY believe to be true, so their truth IS the real truth.”

Projecting I see.

“Elizabeth Warren likes to beat up on (verbally) those who build factories (that produce jobs). She's another thief who wants to see the redistribution of other people's wealth. She was commended in a recent post at Aljazerra dot com as being a "voice of reason amid the madness." How special. Doesn't everyone want an endorsement from Aljazeera?”

Wow, another low information FAUX NOISE viewer rears their ignorant head.

Rose L
“Does it mean shoving your unwashed, mean-looking, brainwashed mug in other people's faces to verbally confront or challenge them?”

Funny how that didn’t bother you when T-baggers did that during the Healthcare debate. They were hailed as “True Patriots” and just try carrying a gun to a republicon rally like the T-baggers did to Democratic rallies. Just see how far you get. Bet you’d find yourself in handcuffs so fast it would make your head spin.

“What I find amusing is that they don't seem to realize that a majority of Americans support OWS. It's possible that their smear tactics can erode some of that support, but the fake masks are coming off and a lot of people are starting to see reality and get fed up.”

Sort of reminds me of that Twilight epi where the old man forced greedy, selfish, family members to wear hideous masks until midnight in order to get their inheritance. After which their faces conformed to the shape of the masks.

I saw the Rove ad the other morning while watching the news. It really made me laugh because they do not know Massachusetts very well. Voters here like what she has to say so far, as well as how she handles herself.

Factual ads > smear campaigns.

Rose L:

Just re-read your own posts, and substitute the words "Tea Party" everywhere you've vilified Occupy. See what it would say in that case? Well, that's where the truth is. Your beloved Tea Party, funded by the Koch brothers for their own purposes, in neither patriotic nor "grass roots." It's AstroTurf from the get-go, funded on corporate money, and spouting corporate spin on every possible issue.

Occupy is at the least end a true grass roots movement, and has called out the TRUE patriots and defenders of the Constitution and this country. The Kochs don't have to bus in ringers to Occupy rallies, as they are required to keep the numbers up at tea parties. Occupy protesters come in on their own time and their own dime.

We know all about the Tea Party and its "grass roots" here in Wisconsin. The Tea Party protesters who dared to show their faces in Madison in defense of Walker and the Kochs had to be bussed in from Virginia at Koch expense. And all the while, Fox News claimed the real protesters only 10% of their real strength and "professional agitators" brought in by Unions. And you apparently ate up those lies with a long-handled spoon.

It doesn't make you look any more intelligent or better informed to keep telling the same old, tired lies over and over again. For the rest of the world, the Tea Party has already been revealed to be a corporate sponsored tool. We're all SEEN the photos of their guns at rallies; we've read the news coverage of gun-toting te

Update: Rove's nasty-gram of an ad is having an unintended side effect. It's raising a WHOLE LOT of campaign contributions for Elizabeth Warren!

Serves him right, the prevaricating little troll.
