“Out there”

Monday, Sep 24, 2012

* THe NRCC has yet another ad blasting Democrat David Gill in the 13th CD. Rate it

* Script…

ANNOUNCER: On the issues, David Gill’s out there.

Way out there.

Like the healthcare law gutting Medicare by $716 billion dollars.

Gill will vote to keep it.

Balancing the budget every year?

Gill called it foolishness.

Gill supported huge tax hikes even for the middle class.

And eliminating Medicare entirely?

That’s Part of Gill’s plan.

DAVID GILL: “Medicare would no longer exist.”

ANNOUNCER: David Gill – he’s too extreme.

DISCLAIMER: The National Republican Congressional Committee is responsible for the content of this advertising.

* Meanwhile

Friday, the Federal Election Commission reported that the amount of so-called “independent” expenditures in the congressional race amounts to more than $800,000. The independent expenditures are those made within the congressional district but supposedly not in cooperation with a candidate’s campaign committee.

Almost half of the amount — $400,224 — has been spent by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee on television ads opposing Davis.

Others spending money on the race include the National Republican Congressional Committee, the American Action Network and the New Prosperity Foundation, which have run or are running anti-Gill ads.

The Service Employees International Union’s committee on political education reported investing more than $700 on pro-Gill campaign literature.

The $808,981 poured into the 13th District by independent groups ranks fourth among all 18 Illinois congressional districts this fall. The greatest amount — more than $1.2 million — has been spent in the 12th District race in southwestern Illinois between Democrat William Enyart and Republican Jason Plummer.

We’ll get to that race later today.

    It’s incredibly moving to see the House GOP moneybags aggressively, if not sincerely, defending one of the Great Society’ shining moments, the massive implementation of socialized medicine.

    LBJ must be having a great laugh, wherever he is.

    roll call’s story this morning listed the nrcc going up in 27 new districts. this was the only one in illinois. Gill’s relative was a thorn in the side of mark kirk’s and her blog was one of the first to publicize the attack on his military record.

    The ad is, of course, a total distortion of David’s views. On substance, I rate it as some strong negative. But the other question is, effectiveness. It seeks to exploit ignorance and fear about Gill’s views and about the Federal care law. How do the Democrats respond, especially now that the Gill campaign has fallen into the hands of inside-the-beltway hired guns with no special knowledge of the district except what they get from polling data? Gill is a very good guy, and I am totally for him. I just hope that he and his campaign survive becoming part of the sick national political environment.

    Eliminating Medicare is too extreme? Based on this ad, I assume the GOP strongly supports keeping Medicare just as it is. The party message must be ‘use whatever works in any particular race’. A consistent message is simply not needed. I must have missed Ryan’s chapter on the importance of maintaining Medicare in it’s current form.

    =Gill’s relative was a thorn in the side of mark kirk’s and her blog was one of the first to publicize the attack on his military record.=

    Oh dear, shore. Are you pushing “guilt by association” or is this the “but if hadn’t been for Gill, no one would have jumped on it” argument?
