The 2014 GOP Ad That Will Terrify Every Incumbent Democrat

Especially if they repeated Obama’s lies themselves. Have fun, folks.

The ad, which was produced by GOP media consultant Larry McCarthy, hits all of the high notes. It uses footage of Shaheen using the “if you like your insurance you can keep it” line while noting on screen that President Obama was given the “lie of the year” by PolitiFact for saying the same thing. A narrator points out that 20,000 New Hampshire residents have had their insurance canceled and that the Affordable Care Act offers only a single provider on the state’s individual market.   The ad ends with this dagger of a line: “Next November, if you like your Senator, you can keep her. If not, you know what to do.” Oomph.


The Ending Spending ad can be replicated in virtually every single state where an endangered Democratic Senator (or House member) is running.  Find footage of said member praising Obamacare, followed by noting the “lie of the year” award and then follow it up with how many people in the state/district had their policies canceled because of the ACA.

Short, sweet and brutally effective. Expect to see this of some incarnation thereof a gazillion times before next November.
