Works for me. Somebody should put this quote, along with a few others — bitter clingers, deplorables, etc. — into a political ad and run it over and over in Middle America before the mid-terms.Meh. Most of middle America outside of cities are republican. Not really going to have much of an effect. Just like democratic ads of Trump lies will play in democratic states and really have no effect. But, yeah, those things are going to happen anyway.
Follow that up with Democrat quotes advocating socialism.
Finish it off with a third Willie Horton type ad regarding immigration.
It's more of a get out the vote thing. Republicans need something to counter the anti-Trump enthusiasm. Self-inflicted wounds tend to play very well, way better than policy.
While my post was somewhat tongue-in-cheek, it will be the playbook. I would assume we see an unprecedented number of negative ads this year.
I'm not sure that's possible.
In raw numbers, or as a percentage of ads? There a Shirley people who actually count. Got to have something for sociology interns to do I guess.
Things have always been nasty, and often personal, and occasionally both. DJT seems to go all-in in any direction he goes at the moment, so quite frankly I don't think he has it in him to run what many might agree would be a respectable, positive campaign. If he has an opponent, regardless of who it is or what they've done, St. Francis himself, Trump would show not a hint of gentlemanly respect.
In any case, though, yeah Cuomo is an idiot. That doesn't make the point he so inelegantly attempted to express incorrect. He's just another NY politician that thinks, since NY is the center of the universe, that they should naturally be a national figure. Glad to see him burn out quick.
