Matt Rosendale Releases a Familiar Ad

Shares

For another candidate, it would seem irresponsible to release an ad featuring the candidate shooting down a (presumably) government drone while railing about the “too big” federal government while there’s a standoff ongoing between lawbreaking militiamen and federal law enforcement in Nevada, but no time is better for Maryland’s Matt Rosendale, who released this ad today:

Interesting as that this, it seems that Rosendale was inspired by this ad supporting Libertarian Dan Cox from 2012:

Rosendale: he may not be creative, but he’s a militia man.

This ad is crazy! This is the same guy who says that teaching sex ed in school will lead to 13 year old girls having sex and now he’s shooting phantom drones? I guess that’s what they do in Maryland!

Jon Stewart had a spoof about candidates shooting guns in their political ads. Maybe Rosendale got his idea from Jon!

Given Montanans general distrust of federal surveillance that may be an effective strategy

As a veteran, I’m no fan of NSA, government surveillance, etc, like drones flying over my pastures or trying to control dust, but that mistrust shouldn’t
paralyze our whole nation with hate thoughts and speech against our President and the needs of the working poor by trying to deny healthcare, medicaid expansion, etc.

I think ‘rosy’ has ‘shot his wad’ and his ‘holy, holy, I’m so righteous’ attitude is so contrived, as he tilts his head, and gets all ‘folksy’….has this guy ever SERVED in uniform, other than some para-military ‘shoot drone’ club?

Hmm. I wonder, doesn’t this violate the Montana Pubbie’s “code of the west”? Things that make you go hmm. Can someone ask Birther Bob if ya see’im?

Clivescum Ted Bundy is an idiot. And that’s it. He’ll maybe finally figure it out when his new best friend and cellmate Bubba deflowers ol’ Clivescum! It’s Darwinian. Poor rancher Clivescum Ted Bundy don’t possess the brains to survive! So he’s goin’ down! And that’s the way it should be!

UH oh. Somethin’ didn’t seem right here. Who the hell names their kid Ammon?? Well, ONLY a Mormom! Yes, clivesucm ted bundy is a Mormon! And we ALL know how the Mormons did NOT want to be part of the United States at all! They tried like hell to break away and form their OWN country, and tried to do it violently, until the president surrounded Brigham Young’s house with cannons, and told him that IF you try a violent revolt, you’ll be the first to go! Time to dust off the history books here. Looks as if the Mormons… Read more »

The new white, patriotic, Pubbie male! Why wasn’t Rosey palm Rosendale there?? He’s right in there with’em! He moved to Montana, and immediately decided that he wants our state to secede! Wow, what a man! What a man! How do guys like matt, birther bob, gen. Robert E. Skees, and pastor bulbdim figure that they’ve got the right to move here and then secede? I don’t get it. But here, HERE’S jonny! Jonny Mack talkin’ Pubbie smack! The new Pube male! What courage it takes to sacrifice your women for the cause! And daughters too! Who SAYS these guys aren’t… Read more »

Uh huh. Just as I suspected. Behind every great moron is a Big Kockh brother!

http://crooksandliars.com/2014/04/department-interior-asked-investigate-alec

Why yes, morons. Why don’t we just give ALL our public lands, lands that we ALL own and enjoy, over to the Big Kockhs and be done with it! Makes sense to the inbreds in the patridiot movements!

Facts are a terrible thing to waste on an inbred! As I mentioned earlier, folks in the ag/ranching community should be concerned by Clivescum Ted Bundy’s action. He is casting them ALL in a very bad light, especially since all the other ranchers down there complied. Maybe Ted Bundy is plannin’ a NOTHER mountain meadows massacre! Time for the moron Mormons to reassert their right to their own country! Carved out of OUR country! And time once again for the prez to send in the canons to surround little ted bundy’s house! HEY, history repeating itself! That’s all. http://leftisrightblog.wordpress.com/2014/04/15/over-the-edge/ Sorry,… Read more »

It’s in Clivescum’s genes! Murder, mayhem, and scoffing the law AND the U.S. Government! Is this really what the inbreds should be rallying around?

Sort of surprise that Don would bring up the Cox ad, but since he did, people might as well have some facts and background information. Below are snips taken from a 10/26/11 Helena IR article: “A Montana hunting-and-angling group with Democratic ties has made a large TV ad buy rapping Republican U.S. Rep. Denny Rehberg for his support of a bill that gives the U.S. Border Patrol access to all federal lands for border-security purposes. Calling the bill a “federal land grab of the highest order,” Montana Hunters and Anglers Action bought ads in the Missoula and Billings television markets… Read more »

Matthew, you add another example of why campaign finance reform is so important; dark money in any form should not be tolerated. That being said, since there doesn’t seem to be a Constitutional Amendment in the offing, I can’t blame Montana Hunters and Anglers for their dark money TV buys: “If you’re gonna wrestle pigs, you’re gonna have to get muddy.”

Back to Rosendale. Next up he’ll be shooting at homosexual Mexican tree-huggers (who support Obamacare) as they storm the Montana border.

And another P.S. At the end of the Rosendale TV spot, he says he’ll “get Washington out of our lives.”

Would this include federal highway dollars, farm subsidies, the weather service, VA hospitals, Social Security …

It should be noted that federal dollars account for over 46% of spending in our state’s main budget.

This guy is clueless.

Interesting that when Democrats engage in corrupt politics they are merely “wrestling with pigs.” I recall the closing line from Animal Farm where the farm animals looked through the window into the house and from pig to man and man to pig and found they could. It tell the difference.

I can’t either.

Lay off the sauce before posting, buttinski. You’ll make more sense! At least grammatically!

“…they could not tell the difference.”

Should not be too hard to read over the typo there, unless you’re on one of your benders.

Mark, I like the Animal Farm analogy. You have to admit that the Rosendale TV spot was repulsive and you’d hate to see him in the House. Do you have a candidate we should look at?

UH oh. Is Rosey palm dale the new Birther Bob? Another embarrassment to Montana? You see, problem is that sen. conrnhole burns was a supreme embarrassment too, but at least cornhole was folksy and likeable! This new breed of Pubbie imbecile is not. They’re just ugly and stupid. And ya gotta give it to cornhole. He was a great performer. In a debate, he could mangle a talking point AND the English language in about a thousand different ways and still manage to say something that resonated with a lot of folks. I don’t think that ugly and stupid will.… Read more »

You a “true” Montanan, Sonny? I seriously doubt it since you don’t use your real name. Where you from, lil’ fella? And I don’t recall every picking a fight with you, so why the animosity? If you don’t like what I write, don’t read it. Simple as that. I have never understood why some people would like to get others banned from the blogs. But I’m really not worried that Don will ban me, and I know that that bothers the heck outta guys on the B team like you. As far as me being eloquent, why yes, I write… Read more »
