RNC #FireReid robocall coming to a phone near you

Below is the script to the robocall that will be played in Alaska as part of the Republican National Committee’s new “Fire Harry Reid” campaign.

President Barack Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid have blocked hundreds of bills that would spur job creation. Their partisan agenda has caused our healthcare costs to skyrocket. Their environmentalist billionaire backers won’t let the Keystone pipeline bring affordable energy to our state. A vote for Senator Mark Begich is just another rubber stamp on their failed agenda. It’s time to Fire Harry Reid. It’s time to vote against Senator Mark Begich.

Variations of the script—plugging in individual state candidates and officials–will also be used in Colorado, Iowa, Louisiana, Michigan, Montana, New Mexico, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Oregon, South Dakota, Virginia, and West Virginia.

It’s unclear how much the name “Harry Reid” resonates in Alaska. The Senate majority leader certainly isn’t as well-known as the Koch brothers, say, or even Nancy Pelosi. We’ll see if the RNC is successful in changing that.

    This is the Republicans employing a Back to the Future strategy. Heavy handed, little thought and the use of very old technology. Thank God the Repiblicans have money. They certainly don’t appear to be smart techo-savvy political operatives. And Keystone? Why in the world do they think this will invoke a positive voter response? This is what I call a dumb elephant strategy.

    The script portrayed as what will be used in Alaska is odd. Keystone will not bring energy to Alaska, and Keystone is a Barack Hussein Obama decision. Reid is a pariah here in Alaska, at least with everyone I know, but the most often cited mark against him is his attempt to take guns away from law-abiding Americans (including Alaskans of course). It is gun control that angers Alaskans so far as the Harry Reid record but this script doesn’t mention the 2nd Amendment at all.

    I honestly believe that robocalls have negative consequences for their intended agenda, perhaps especially in a big election year like this one. At best robocalls are a waste of money. When the script is apparently written by people who have no knowledge of Alaskans the money is even more likely misspent here.

    I am going to seriously listen the the Senate campaign debate following the primary. That said, absent a very compelling argument in your favor, the most efficient way to get me to vote for your opponent is to pester me with a robocall.
