Reid’s Own Propagandists Are Concerned

From an increasingly nervous Associated Press:

Uncertain future for Reid despite rebound in Nev.

By Michael R. Blood, AP Political Writer Sun Jul 25, 2010

HENDERSON, Nev. – Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid’s chances for six more years in Washington may be like tossing dice in a casino, even if he has made headway against Republican challenger Sharron Angle in a state with the nation’s highest rate of joblessness.

The four-term Reid holds a slight lead over Angle in the latest polling, thanks in part to her unsteady performance since winning the June primary and to Democratic ads portraying her as an extremist. Video of Angle scurrying away from reporters has mixed with television commercials of older voters upset about her call to phase out Social Security and Medicare.

Notice how the AP feels obligated to front-load their story about Harry Reid’s re-election prospects with a series of subtle attacks on his opponent, Sharron Angle.

But an internal memo obtained by The Associated Press says Reid has a "a serious problem" with voters frustrated with the economy and "receives a great deal of blame." The July 15 memo is based on polling research conducted for Patriot Majority, a union-funded group that is running TV ads against Angle.

The race is wide open, the memo concludes, despite Reid’s improved standing and voters’ alarm over some of Angle’s positions.

"An even playing field is an improvement for Reid, as earlier surveys indicated a much more difficult path to re-election," the memo says. The winner in November will be the candidate "who makes the more persuasive case that he, or she, is more dependable and can be counted on to deliver for Nevada in these tough economic times."

The Associated Press is so concerned about Mr. Reid’s fate, they are trying to bludgeon him into pretending to be concerned about increasing jobs. As opposed to pushing for ‘cap and trade’ and other job-killing tax hikes, as he is wont to do.

Still, the Associated Press shows their loyalty to his cause by devoting the last 15 paragraphs of their article to attacking Ms. Angle with mostly trumped up charges.

But it certainly must be troubling for the AP and the rest of the Reid campaign to have the so-called ‘Patriot Majority’ writing memos like this.

After all, the ‘Patriot Majority’ is a simply SEIU funded Reid front. It is founded and headed by a man who was once Harry Reid’s communications director.

For the record, here is one of Patriot Majority’s subtle web-based email campaigns titled, “The Tea Party is Over.” It says:

“It’s time to fight back. As Americans, we must answer the call to patriotic duty and say no to the dangerous extremism that threatens to tear our country apart.”

Did you ever think you would live to see wanting to reduce the size of government and out of control spending and taxes described as “dangerous extremism”?

And yet the AP insists that Sharron Angle is the whackjob in this race.

    Corrected quote:
    “It’s time to fight back. As Americans, we must answer the call to patriotic duty and say no to the dangerous MARXISM that threatens to tear our country apart.”

    Harry Reid is yet another part of the Liberal Loon Party (LLP). Liberals who love these types of elected people will vote Democratic for the next 200 years and here is why.

    Angle should be up by double digits in this race. But don’t be shocked if she should wind up losing. Angle will kow-tow to the left, ignore the conservatives who WANT to vote for her and play defense rather than state the pro-American, anti-illegal, anti Hussein beliefs Nevada voters are waiting for. In short, she’ll follow the McCain rules of election losing….appeal to the “moderates” and undecideds while attacking conservatives as “too radical.” It worked SOOO well for him, after all.
