Today’s Lamar-bashing roundup

Lamar Should be Punished
From a news release:
The Tennessee Campaign for Liberty has launched www.PunishLamar.com a new project to hold Senator Alexander accountable for his voting record. The centerpiece of this project is a unique, descriptive, and humorous, video highlighting many of Senator Alexander’s objectionable votes.

“Liberal Lamar’s voting record is clearly not conservative” said Matt Collins a coordinator with the TN Campaign for Liberty. “It’s important for people to know the truth about how many of his votes align with the Obama agenda.”

The mission of the Campaign for Liberty is to promote and defend the great American principles of individual liberty, limited government, sound money, free markets, and a Constitutional foreign policy, by means of education, issue advocacy, and grassroots mobilization. The Campaign for Liberty was formed in 2008 after the conclusion of Congressman Ron Paul’s Presidential bid.

The video runs almost nine minutes. You’ll find it HERE

Lamar is Like Lugar
Jeff Woods fantasizes, “We bet they’re fist-bumping all over Lamar Alexander reelection campaign headquarters today”… then rambles into bah-humbugging the suspected celebratory behavior.

To borrow from Sarah Palin, will that lamestream media never learn?

Anyone who thinks any poll taken so many months before any election is all that meaningful should take a look at what happened to Indiana Sen. Richard Lugar. At the end of 2010, he was his state’s most popular politician with a 66% favorable rating. The tea partier Richard Mourdock was at 14%. By April of 2012 in their Republican primary, Lugar trailed Mourdock by 5 points, and the senator wound up losing 61%-39%.

All it took to bring down Lugar was a few million dollars worth of negative TV ads from outside conservative groups.

…With his moderate voting record, Alexander is every bit as vulnerable on the issues as Lugar.

Run a few TV ads pointing out Alexander votes with President Obama 62% of the time and—boom!—Lamar’s approval rating isn’t so high anymore.

It all has to fall into place but, no matter what his polls say now, Alexander’s defeat at the hands of the tea party is well within the realm of the possible as Lugar and other establishment Republicans have learned.

Briefly…
From challenger Joe Carr in a news release: He’s more liberal than Jim Cooper. HERE.

From Senate Conservatives Fund, in a news release: Lamar’s broadcast advertising “conveniently leaves out any mention of Alexander’s vote to fund the implementation of Obamacare on March 20, 2013.” HERE.
