Desperate measures by Dems for struggling Salazar

Posted by WhoSaidYouSaid on October 27th, 2010

U.S. Rep. John Salazar, D-Colo., is the star of the “They Spend / You Pay!” billboards [see video] put up by WhoSaidYouSaid in Grand Junction.

And with good reason. Salazar’s votes for ObamaCare and the $787 billion deficit-fueled stimulus show that he is a “fake” fiscal conservative, as described at the “Send Salazar Packing” rally in May.

Given Salazar’s voting record (resulting in a grade of ‘F’ from the National Taxpayers Union) we can understand the hardship for Democratic strategists trying to portray him as a fiscal conservative.

Yet, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) is paying for a mailer portraying a Salazar opponent, the Libertarian candidate in the 3rd Congressional District, as someone whose “first act would be to drastically reduce the size of government,” Politico reports.

Hmmmm. Now why would the Democrats do that?

“It wouldn’t be the first time that Democrats or Republicans have tried to manipulate votes on the other side,” Salazar’s Alabama-based pollster, John Anzalone, was quoted in Politico’s revelatory story today on attempts by the Democrats to siphon support from Republican candidates toward third-party candidates in close Congressional races.

The cynical desperation by the DCCC is easy to understand if you read this story from “The Hill,” headlined, “Midterm blowout: 50 or more Dem seats set to fall in the election.”

Closer to home, The Hill reports that…

“Rep. John Salazar (D-Colo.) trails his GOP opponent, Scott Tipton, by four points in The Hill 2010 Midterm Election Poll, with 8 percent of likely voters undecided. Independent voters are breaking for Tipton by 15 points. He’s also winning among male, female, middle-aged and older voters.”
