Get your Powder, Get your gun, and Bolt the Door!

A guy by the name of Matt Rosendale has released a video in which he announces his candidacy for Congress, not by giving a speech but by growling and snarling and yelling, like some sort of caged animal.  It makes me very uncomfortable just to watch it.

This is a frightening individual who comes across as something like a deranged drill sergeant or convicted murderer, who could be armed and dangerous. Continue reading

Momentum Continues for Gillan: New Congressional Ad Up

The momentum continues for Kim Gillan’s congressional campaign tonight. In addition to winning the second consecutive debate, Gillan also has a new ad up.  Here it is:

 

Daines meanwhile is having a harder and harder time hiding the fact that he’s marching lock-step with Paul Ryan while he’s  schmoozing in DC.  He even held an event with the TEA partier to troll for lobbyist cash.   Here’s the screenshot of the invite.

But back in Montana he’s trying to cover up his unpopular stances that will hurt Montanans — ending Medicare’s guaranteed benefits and slashing Pell grants.

He’s trying to distract voters from these key issue by running attack ads lying about Kim’s position on gun rights.  Of course, Daines piece of crap ad offers no sources–and how could he? Gillan has supported many gun  bills over the years and has been endorsed by the NRA in her legislative races.

Bought and Paid For

With the insurance and tobacco industries’ most recent attempt to buy the Montana Attorney General race, the latest Tester ad couldn’t be more timely.  Here’s the ad:

Rehberg and Statesmanship: For the Birds

This video is making the rounds, and it’s a must-watch for those of us who follow Montana politics. Congressman Dennis Rehberg (I see the Tester campaign is now calling him, accurately, Lobbyist Dennis Rehberg) responds to a question from some kid with a Sony by flipping the bird.

Although unsurprising, this is a pretty remarkable reaction from Rehberg for two reasons.

One, Rehberg’s floundering campaign is trying very hard to reinvent Dennis Rehberg as some sort of likable, cool-headed cowboy—which is a herculean challenge when all you have to work with is an angry, lazy land subdivider who loves booze and wants to return to the lobbying business.

Rehberg’s handlers know we Montanans see their boss as “that guy who sues firefighters” and puts his staffers on speedboats with drunk drivers.  That attempted nice-guy makeover?  It just went out the window with one raised middle finger.  Dennis Rehberg just can’t keep his cool.

Two, Rehberg’s bird is a setback in his lifelong pursuit of winning a seat in the Senate.  Sure, in the U.S. House of Representatives, maybe it’s just fine to flip off kids and pregnant constituents (Yes, Rehberg made headlines for lewdly offending a pregnant Montanan) and fall off horses drunk and sue firefighters. But senators are supposed to be statesmen and women.  Rehberg’s default mode is more than just a loose cannon.  It’s just not becoming of the Upper House of Congress.

As a lobbyist, however, he’ll probably do just fine.

New Ad: Why is Rehberg trying to tip the scales even more for big corporations and the richest 2 percent?

Americans United for Change and AFSCME have a new ad on the air to hold Congressman Rehberg to account for his recent irresponsible votes to preserve the Bush tax cuts for the richest 2%.  The ad running heavily on the local broadcast stations in Billings, Butte, and Missoula on August 6 and 7.

 Tom McMahon, Executive Director,  of Americans United for Change had some strong words for Rehberg:

“Congressman Rehberg is clearly willing to protect tax breaks for the richest 2% and big oil companies at any cost, even if means hiking taxes on Montana families.  If tax cuts for the rich were really the key to economic growth, how does Rep. Rehberg explain why President Bush’s millionaire tax breaks resulted in the worst presidential jobs record in recorded history? While the Bush tax cuts for the rich certainly failed to create jobs, they were all too successful at running up the national debt. For Rep. Rehberg to insist on doing the same irresponsible thing and handing millionaires another $150,000 check they don’t need and we can’t afford and expecting a different result is the definition of insanity.  It is past time to end the Bush tax cuts for the richest 2%, so that the rich start to pay their fair share.  If we don’t, we won’t be able to protect middle-class priorities like education and Medicare from deep cutbacks. Of course, Congressman Rehberg already tried to go down that road, voting to for the so-called “cut, cap, and balance” plan that would mean severe cuts to Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security benefits for Montana seniors.  The Congressman need to get his priorities straightened out.”
