New Anti-Limbaugh Radio Attack Ad To Air Beginning Tomorrow
Dems Plan New Anti-Limbaugh Attack Ads
*** NEW: In New England, Conservative Talk Ratings Surge ***
*** UPDATED WITH EXCLUSIVE LIMBAUGH REACTION CLIP FROM MARK LEVIN SHOW ***
Apparently furious with the success of a newly-reunited conservative-GOP coalition against the reckless spending of hundreds of billions in taxpayer funds, a group of Obamists headed by MoveOn.org are planning an anti-Rush Limbaugh attack radio ad campaign.
Set to begin tomorrow on stations nationwide, the ads are designed to put pressure on GOP moderates in the US Senate who might be inclined to follow the lead of their House counterparts.
In yesterday's vote on the phony, pork-laden "stimulus" bill, Republicans (joined by a handful of Democrats) unanimously rejected the Obamist plan.
Here's the script of their radio attack ad:
ANNOUNCER: Listen to what Rush Limbaugh said about President Obama’s agenda and his jobs package:
RUSH LIMBAUGH: I HOPE HE FAILS!
ANNOUNCER: The Obama jobs bill overwhelmingly passed the House. But not one Republican voted yes. Every Republican member of the House chose to take Rush Limbaugh’s advice. Every Republican voted with Limbaugh. And against creating four million new American jobs.
We can understand why a extreme partisan like Rush Limbaugh wants President Obama’s jobs program to fail.
But the members of Congress elected to represent the citizens in their districts? That’s another matter.
Now the Obama plan goes to the Senate. And the question is:
Will our Senator, (insert name here), side with Rush Limbaugh too?
LIMBAUGH: I HOPE HE FAILS!
ANNOUNCER: Or, will he reject the partisanship and failed economic policies of the past, and stand up for the people of (state).
Call Senator (insert name here) now at (202) 224-3121. Tell him he represents you, not Rush Limbaugh.
UPDATE: Rush appeared on the Mark Levin Show late Thursday evening to provide a reaction to the smear campaign. This clip was created by your Radio Equalizer:
So, will it work? While there certainly are several squishy Republican moderates out there, yesterday's unified House vote could have Senators thinking twice about Obama's sure-to-fail pork-fest.
So far, there are signs of resistance from Senate Republicans, however.
