Brendan Doherty recently put out a tv spot titled “Gotta Be Kidding Me.” In the ad, Doherty claims that politicians in both parties find it tough to cut wasteful government spending, which he eloquently follows up with “You’ve gotta be kidding me. Those guys don’t know what tough is.” Doherty then talks about fighting crime and says, “After fighting real criminals, these guys in Washington don’t scare me one bit.”
Which “guys” (no gals?) is Doherty referring to? Has it slipped his mind that Republicans control the House? One would hope that he’s not too scared of his fellow Republicans.
But, I agree with Brendan Doherty that we should indeed be scared of the Republicans who have been running the House. Those “guys” want to repeal Obamacare, continue the war against women, end Medicare as we know it, and want to keep giving tax breaks to the rich. That’s exactly why we shouldn’t send Brendan Doherty, another Republican, to Washington.
Brendan Doherty, you’ve gotta be kidding us. You are one of “those guys” that you’re trying to warn us about. You’re in lockstep with the Republican agenda that aims to set our country back.
And by the way, Brendan, according to your own campaign website, government spending is down by $1,000,000,000 since last week and is still going down.
