Has anyone noticed how EVERY TV spot for the Dems (in national races) is basically the exact same thing?
i.e.
“The other guy is a Republican.
Republicans are bad.
Did I mention that the other guy is a Republican?”
It’s pretty sad, but that’s all they really need to say in this state.
And has anyone also noticed…I think it’s a Cicilline ad, that labels their opponent a “Romney Republican” ?? What’s that supposed to mean? A (very) moderate republican…. dare I say analogous to a Chafee (Senior) type republican? Didn’t RI love Chafee Senior? Why would any Dem run from that?
Strange times indeed.

Whitehouse is on the GD budget committee in the Senate and they haven’t done their job in what, 4 years? That should be grounds for automatic firing right there.

Budget smudget! This guy got the Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation Act passed. What’s more important than that.

Of course there isn’t an original thought between them but this is Rhode Island. They don’t need even a one to get elected.

Let’s face it. This is basically the inept Rhode Island Republican party’s fault. The put up a nobody, with no political experience, never even run for political office or even worked on a campaign and a campaign staff of children and the expect to win? Fire Zacaria! This boob should never have let this happen I think 33% is generous bet he gets far less than that! What as sad sad joke!!!
