Do they know something that we don’t?
It is a rumble in the blogosphere that the GOP are getting ready to concede the presidential race and concentrate on the Congressional races. Whether this is true or not I am not too sure just yet.
But there are indication that it could actually be true.
A new Republican ad appears to suggest that Barack Obama has all but won the presidential race, an argument several vulnerable Senate Republicans may have to reluctantly embrace with only days until Election Day, an expert in campaign advertising said.
Aimed at Kay Hagan, Sen. Elizabeth Dole‘s surprisingly strong Democratic challenger in North Carolina, the 30-second spot from the National Republican Senatorial Committee warns voters against Democrats holding the White House and Congress, and flatly states that if Hagan wins, the party will “get a blank check.”
“These liberals want complete control of government in a time of crisis, all branches of government,” the ad’s narrator states. “No check and balances, no debate, no independence. That’s the truth behind Kay Hagan. If she wins, they get a blank check.”
Committee Online Communications Director John Randall denied that the ad is suggesting that GOP nominee John McCain will lose out on the White House.
The ad is saying, basically, vote Republicans into Congress to stop Obama having a Democrat Congress and a Democrat president. Is that the image that the GOP wants to put out?
Many moderate Republicans are very dissatisfied with McCain/Palin, especially Palin. Some have said that they will not vote at all, rather waiting until she is off the ticket, but that isn’t going to happen.
But with polls warning of a GOP bloodbath November 4, vulnerable senators in red states may have no other option but to suggest that Obama will capture the White House and warn that the Illinois senator needs to be checked by Senate Republicans.
Some have said that the USA will be a sea of blue come election day – but I, like so many, will believe that when I see it.
Get OUT TO VOTE – that is the only way Barack Obama can win.
