Hillary Clinton Has a New Ally: The North Carolina Republican Party

The North Carolina Republican Party will come out with a new TV ad on Monday that they hope will cause Democratic voters to turn away from two strong Democratic candidates for governor in their Democratic primary. Both Bev Purdue and Richard Moore, North Carolina’s State Treasurer and Lieutenant Governor, respectively, are running for their party’s nomination for Governor against Dennis Nielsen. On Monday, Supposed Democrat Nielsen will receive a little gift from the North Carolina Republican Party. As will Hillary Clinton. Nielsen, by my own estimate is a Republican in name only. And both of his opponents have endorsed Barack Obama.

So what did North Carolina’s Republican Party do? They created a TV ad that they are will show in North Carolina’s media markets starting Monday. An ad that clears a path for their man, RINO Dennis Nielsen.

And incidentally, an ad that does a pretty good job for Hillary Clinton’s campaign as well.

Don’t believe me? Take a look for yourself.

That Barack Obama is "too extreme for North Carolina"?

That’s a little freebie for Nielsen courtesy of the Republican Party. And it couldn’t possibly hurt the chances of Hillary Clinton, either, could it? After all, Clinton gets gratis from the Republican Party some negative trash talk of Barack Obama. Their enemy is her enemy.

How about that? Clearly the message is that the North Carolina Republican Party, the party of Jesse Helms, would not only like their shill running in the Democratic ticket for Governor, they also would like to see Hillary Clinton win their presidential primary.

By the way, John McCain has asked the party to pull the ad.

“I don't know why they do it. Obviously, I don't control them, but I'm making it very clear, as I have a couple of times in the past, that there's no place for that kind of campaigning, and the American people don't want it.”

Oh, no, counters the NCRP. This isn’t an attack against Obama. This is a “local issue” (wink, wink, nudge nudge).

So what began as a Rush Limbaugh exhortation to his ‘ditto heads’, to get out there and vote for Hillary Clinton, has now become policy of the North Carolina Republican Party. McCain has denounced it, thus getting its coming some national news air time. Giving it a national audience. Win-win for McCain.

Not surprisingly, Hillary Clinton has not denounced it, and in not doing so, has given tacit approval of the actions of the opposing party.

Tonight, Hillary Clinton has gone on TV proclaiming that Barack Obama is not electable in the fall, a big flip flop from the recent debate’s “Yes, yes, yes” response when asked whether Obama could win in the fall. Now I am beginning to wonder if Hillary Clinton has a tacit agreement with the McCain campaign. That, since she has no chance at the nomination this year, she and her surrogates (surprisingly now, the North Carolina Republican Party) will issue punishments to Obama in the primaries so McCain can finish him off in the fall.

Setting herself up for a more successful run in 2012.

Talk about victory at any price. Now things are starting to make sense. Hillarycrats saying that they would vote for McCain in the fall instead of voting for Obama.

It makes a lot of sense. I wonder if any superdelegates have put this thing together and will now move in to stop this anti-Democratic Party insanity.
