Simon Johnson provides his separate assessment of the lies and distortions used in attacking MA Senate candidate, Elizabeth Warren, at BaseLineScenario:
Karl Rove’s Crossroads GPS has another ad out attacking Elizabeth Warren. This is beyond ludicrous – the ad attempts to blame Ms. Warren for the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) and for bank bailouts. The principle here seems to be that when the truth cannot be slanted in a way you want, just ignore the facts and go all out for disinformation.
I count at least five misrepresentations in the ad, and I suggest the following corrections (here):...
In case it's not so obvious, Karl Rove and American Crossroads / GPS are in full-blown service to launder the electoral interests of the richest 1% who don't have the numbers but have the money that designed the Citizens United decision exactly in order to be able to buy corporate speech, instead.
Senator Bernie Sanders, just yesterday, offered a Constitutional amendment in what I consider to be the last-ditch effort to reverse the Citizens United-induced spiral into a straight-up representative fascism.
Until that Amendment is passed, I guess, American Crossroads Watch will continue to respond to, for further example, what is likely to be a ramping of attacks on the efforts of candidates or officials like Virginia Governor Tim Kaine.
But it takes more than documenting the expose, and your help is needed to get the word out. Please help spread it to your friends and families.
