Dems criticize governor hopeful Beau McCoy's (R-NE) ad in which he strikes a Barack Obama doll

Source: Omaha World Herald

By Alissa Skelton

Nebraska Democrats on Friday criticized a TV ad showing Republican governor candidate Beau McCoy knocking a Barack Obama doll off a fence post with his hand.

The ad opens with McCoy saying, “More Obamacare in Nebraska? That is the last thing we need.”

He then strikes a doll that resembles President Obama.

“Beau McCoy hit a new low in his ad, where he is seen striking the president off a fence post,” said Dan Marvin, executive director of the Nebraska Democratic Party.

2. Imagine, if you can...

...the uproar that would follow video of President Obama knocking a Beau McCoy bobble head from a fencepost. The boundaries of civil public discourse would be obliterated.

Wait. That's already happened.

Hmm. It really is hard to imagine how low radical conservatives would sink, in this scenario.

3. I went to YouTube to see this video, to vote it down,

found the ratings & comments are disabled for it.

That commercial absolutely stinks.

It's so obnoxious, yet it's also so stupid.

He seems a little s-l-o-w for a governor, doesn't he?

Good luck to Nebraska.

15. We lived in NE for 6 years

and while we knew some lovely people, the folks who run the state are major a$$holes. I swore when we moved I'd never go back
and almost 14 years later, I never have.

Their state motto should be "ignorant and proud of it".

7. McCoy is sick! Besides striking our POTUS in effigy he wants to deny HC to Nebraska Peeps.

McCoy's gestures & words are more than symbolic. The ability of this psychopath to repress his behavior is wearing thin and I think he should be held responsible for it! Furthermore he is acting as a role model for others of the same ilk!
McCoy should have more than just a verbal condemnation of this ad.

I think he should be censured, this ad should be pulled, and he should be blocked from making any more ads.
I also think McCoy should be fined and have to make a public apology not only to our President but all US citizens.
In addition he should have to work in a nursing home, hospital or hospice for at least 1 yr. (without complaining about it in public).
It's really past time these spoiled brats get away with this incitive behavior!

23. It's worse than that. He is symbolically knocking down all the people who need the ACA to live.

Denying the help to live with dignity and in health, able to make changes in their lives and those of their family and their communities.

Knocking them down to the ground to be gleefully stomped on and die. Mass murder. That's what he's really saying there.

16. He's at 4% in a recent poll

He has to get some attention somehow I guess.

Looks like Jon Bruning has a decent lead on the field at 35% in a five or six-way primary.

18. Bet this creep's polling numbers increase 5-10% in the next polls to come out.

On a completely unrelated note, I love how you can say "Conservative Republican" in a commercial and it's supposed to be perceived as a positive, while if anyone dared to identify themselves as a "Liberal Democrat," they would be considered a fringe candidate and not have any remote chance of winning.

22. Typical Republican tactic: attack a caricature of Obama...

...rather than introduce competing ideas.

This is a out as mature as drawing mustaches on Obama posters, with the added creepiness of violent rhetoric. Typical nullification nonsense.
