New DCCC ad against Greg Davis in MS-01

October 15, 2008

Is this all they have on the guy?  Is this really an issue with the financial crisis and Childers D.C. voting record?  They must think we are pretty stupid.

That said, Davis’ campaign has not shown the strength it had in the special,  he may be able to sneak in but will have to fight back to win.

DCCC Tries To Launch An All Out Race War In MS-01

May 12, 2008

Now THIS is Racial Politics at it’s absolute worst. The DCCC should be Ashamed of themselves.

From the Article that the DCCC cites:

Southaven Mayor Greg Davis said Thursday he would be willing to display the Jefferson Davis statue, which is in Downtown Memphis, near City Hall at the end of Northwest Drive.

Horn Lake Mayor Nat Baker also said he would take the statues of Davis and of Confederate Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest “in a heartbeat, even if we’d have to find some privately owned land to put them on.”

Davis said he isn’t “pushing” for the statue of Davis, despite some news reports saying otherwise.

“All I said was we’d be willing to give the statue a home,” Davis said. “That’s as far as my conversation with Gary Roper went.”

Davis said he hasn’t talked with any public official in Memphis about acquiring the statue.

He also said he doesn’t know what the exact process of obtaining the statue would be.

“I don’t even know if Memphis is even going to move it or not,” Davis said. “We were asked if we could give it a home and we said ‘yes.’ We’re not going to pay for it.

So “wanted to honor” and “try to honor” is’nt just a stretch it is complete and total bullcrap. They are talking about the WRONG STATUE!!!! This is FEAR BASED, RACIALLY MOTIVATED AND FALSE.

***Update*** Confirmed This is completely false because Davis was referring to the JEFFERSON DAVIS STATUE, NOT THE NATHAN BEDFORD FORREST STATUE. THIS IS A FLAT OUT LIE AND FABRICATION IT WAS THE MAYOR OF HORN LAKE THAT WANTED THE STATUE IN QUESTION.

Now that “Flyergate” has become national news we remind all you big boy bloggers that you saw it here first.

Senatobia Democrat Endorses Davis

Too close to call
An Editorial May 08, 2008

In this wild and crazy election year, even Mississippi’s First Congressional District is getting national attention.

Advertisement
The stakes are high – so high that even the Vice President scheduled a trip to boost Southaven Mayor Greg Davis. To counter, Democratic candidate Travis Childers has been selling gasoline at several north Mississippi service stations for $1.25 a gallon.

The television ads have been poor quality and low down on both sides, though technically the ads were not paid for by the candidates but by their national affiliates.

Davis is the best option. He has been a good mayor for one of the state’s fastest growing cities.

The district was heavily gerrymandered by the Mississippi House of Representatives to produce a Democratic winner, so we’ll just have to see how it comes out.

Travis Childers and Nancy Pelosi’s $16,000, Guilt by Association Volume #11

May 6, 2008

There was considerable debate about weather or not Travis Childers was in bed with Nancy Pelosi and now we have black and white proof. Documents from the FEC showing Pelosi’s significant investment in Travis Childers, read them and weep folks.

16,000 dollars in Liberal San Francisco money to Travis Childers, who do you think Travis will be voting for for Speaker.

Just think for a second about why Pelosi would drop that kind of cash on ‘ol Travis.

The $16,000 from Nancy Pelosi, came in 5 different checks, 6 Grand from her campaign account and 10 Grand from her PAC To the Future.

Support from or for Nancy Pelosi should flat out disqualify you from holding office in North Mississippi.

So what is it going to be folks?  A North Mississippi agenda in Washington to represent you (Greg Davis) or a North California agenda (The Childers and Pelosi Dynamic Duo)?

Oh wait, am I attacking poor Travis about a connection with a “politician that he’s never met”?  Looks like you sure welcomed her checks though huh Mr. Travis?

What People are saying about Travis Childers Right now… Ouch!

April 30, 2008

Childers’s eagerness to shrug off his party’s frontrunner is a sign that some Democrats scare easily. -Marc Ambinder Atlantic Monthly

No question that Childers’ acceptance of the Obama endorsement and calling help is his achilles heel.  He is desperate to get away from it. -Alan Lange, Editor Y’all Politics

What do you think?  The title of the Republican attack ad is “Conservatives Can’t Trust Travis Childers?”  But can we? -DailyKos (Liberal Blog)

Apparently, Childers is running away from any endorsement from Sen. Obama. -MyDD.com (liberal blog)

 GOP ads linking Childers to two recent winners of the not-very-coveted National Journal “most liberal senator” award, John F. Kerry and Barack Obama. Childers is now trying to distance himself from the national Democratic party and Barack Obama in particular, but it’s questionable how effective that tactic will be over the course of the campaign. Childers also has to contend with the real likelihood that he will win the special election amid low turnout, only to be turfed out in six months when the presidential contest will bring out more of those GOP-leaning voters and Davis will have a big stack of roll-call votes showing Childers having an 80%+ agreement in his voting record with Nancy Pelosi -Signifying Nothing

(Childers made) a hasty, hasty, hasty retreat from the intolerably cruel question about whether he wants Obama to endorse him – RedState

Davis is pressing Childers about the apparent endorsement from the Obama campaign e-mailed to Obama supporters in the 1st District… Childers insists he didn’t ask for Obama’s support and he deflected a question of whether he would accept his endorsement -Daily Journal

Well it looks like Mr. Travis is having a little bit of a tough time, he is deflecting legitimate questions, denying obvious help and endorsement from Obama and not making his liberal base or possible crossover conservatives happy.

We think this might have been Travis Childers proverbial “Macaca moment” looks like his campaign is erupting into a big ball of fire right now and his response ad is so weak that it is almost laughable.

Nowhere to go, no way to make anyone happy, campaign imploding.  This looks very bad for Tounge Twistin Travis.

This was slapped together quickly i will come back and put all the hotlinks in later.

-ROM

Oh my, if this is the response I think we are seeing a death rattle, now Childers will be seen as the negative campaigner since he is on camera talking trash.  This is basically an admission of guilt which builds on the GOP case, as well as turns off Democrats or Obama supporters.  This furthers the doubts that people have about Travis and will hurt him even more.

Terrible campaign move.
