Oct 24, 2014 7:40 PM PT

The Ending Spending Action Fund has upped the ante in Georgia with a new $1.3 million ad buy, hitting Democrat Michelle Nunn across three fronts: her deference to an ever more unpopular Obama;  Nunn's ultimately embarrassing attempt to use former President George H.W. Bush in a PR stunt; and Congressman Jack Kingston's endorsement of Nunn's opponent, Republican David Perdue.

This latest ad buy is in addition to the PAC's two million dollar ad buy in Georgia just ten days ago.

The 'War on Women' chokes out in a cloud of hypocrisy and failure

Oct 24, 2014 10:47 AM PT

In response to For Democrats, 'The Republican War On Women' Is Now Literally A Punchline (Video):

The "War on Women" was also literally a punch line for CNN anchor Carol Costello, who laughed herself sick over audio of Sarah Palin's daughter Bristol telling the police how a man threw her to the ground and dragged her around while screaming sexual epithets at her.  Costello is refusing to apologize for drooling over the audio as one of the most amusing things her network has ever aired.  The idea that she still has a job is absolutely mind-blowing.

Cassidy Hits Landrieu Hard On Immigration

Oct 23, 2014 2:40 PM PT

According to reports, Republican Bill Cassidy is hitting Democrat Mary Landrieu hard in a new ad based upon her weak record on immigration. That would certainly jibe with the latest from Cassidy's official campaign blog.

(Baton Rouge, La.) --  Dr. Bill Cassidy today announced that the Obama Administration has begun putting its plans to grant amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants into action by ordering an increase in Permanent Resident Cards, or green cards, later this year. The Department of Homeland Security confirmed to the Associated Press that it has already ordered as many as 34 million new green cards in anticipation of executive action from President Obama, even though no such action has been approved by Congress.

 “President Obama has made it clear that he will do whatever he can to grant amnesty to those here illegally – even if it means bypassing Congress. Try as she might to distance herself from President Obama, Senator Landrieu supports his push for amnesty,” Dr. Bill Cassidy said. “We can’t let his failure to secure our borders continue. We’re already seeing thousands of illegal immigrants coming to our state, and I’ll do everything I can to make sure that President Obama doesn’t get his way by doling out millions of new green cards.”
