It's no secret Brownback's Campaign is floundering in the ocean of obscurity. And it's no secret that Brownback, despite his wonderful work for the pro-life cause in the past, has decided to trade his integrity and honor for a few cheap political points. Points he will never realize anyway.

Brownback blogger Billy Valentine (who I actually think is a pretty solid guy,) penned this blog which featured Brownback's amazingly dishonest and desperate press release (really a call for help.)

The best part of the press release was the advice that Martin Gillespie, the political director, gave Romney, courtesy of Mark Twain:

"Always tell the truth. That way, you don’t have to remember what you said."

What is actually funny is that the campaign then goes on to post the YouTube that McCain Camp used, which dishonestly portrays Romney by only including half of his statement. Dishonesty at it's worst.

Here is what Romney said about this while in Chicago yesterday:

I feel for Sam. He is a lousy candidate who is about as exciting as a trip to the proctologist. But what I find alarming is that Sam is OK misrepresent the truth in order to paint Romney as a liar.

Brownback spokesman Gillespie also had this to say:

“One would think that Mitt Romney is in training for an Olympic gold medal in verbal gymnastics, as his various political contortions on abortion are stunning in their timing and flexibility,”

Look for his comments around 1:37 where he actually claims Romney is not pro-life.

Brownback had this to say himself:


I think we all see the Irony here.

Now lets back up and see the forest. Brownback, eager to break 0% in the polls, starts to chime in with the dishonest and sad attack campaigning that McCain has already begun. This will probably be one of the last posts I will put up on Brownback, because the guy has zero chance and is dead after Ames. He is a bottom feeder hoping to pick up some of the votes of dying candidates such as McCain. His tactics of racking on Romney will win him no favors in the GOP and really has set him up in a position to be left out of a future Romney administration. Frankly I support that. Brownback is a Bozo and doesn't deserve the time of day of the conscientious voter.

So Sam, if you are reading this (and why do I actually think you might?) maybe it's time for you to head your own counsel, to "Always tell the truth. That way, you don’t have to remember what you said." I am tired of your self-righteous hypocrisy.

Romney is laying the smack down today in his speech to The National Right to Life Convention Forum. Read the whole text of his speech here:

Who can doubt a record like that? I mean really.

I used to like Sam Brownback, he was a pretty good Senator. But he, like McCain, will never regain the goodwill they have squandered with Republican voters.
These types of attacks prove they are not Statesmen but political hacks.
And every time Romney gets to post one of his classy and thoughtful responses he picks up points with voters.

Jason, is it correct that you have been appointed as a leader the "Faith and Values" part of the campaign? Your insulting and immature language hardly seems appropriate for someone who has been tasked to represent the Judeo-Christian ethic. The term "bottom-feeder" would apply more accurately to YOUR post.

I kind of thought it was an interesting commentary on what Brownback is doing.

By Anonymous Anonymous, at June 15, 2007 at 6:07 PM  

I for one appreciated Jason's straight forward language. It is what it is. Something just isn't integral about the man Brownback, he never did appeal to me. Bless his heart.

Brownback has besmirched himself but I kinda agree with anonymous that you're not being any better.

So true, Brownback is sad. Selling his values for a hail Mary at the Presidency.

I am shocked. I thought I had seen a lot but not this. Using these terms about Sam Brownback is like calling Mitt Romney dead because he has the same name as his deceased father -Governor Romney. It may register with some people who are distracted, but if you actually think for a moment you realize no one trying to convince, rather than fool, you would say that, or what has been written about Sam Brownback in this post. Brownback isn't "selling" out his values - he is proclaiming them. Tough if you don't like the substance or details. Pro-life means more than being, now, against Roe v. Wade. Even liberal Democrats with guts and brains agree its a bad constitutional decision. Pro-life includes being against embryonic stem cell research. If you disbelieve me, study up on the NATIONAL RIGHT TO LIFE Committee. Compare their positions to the candidates and Sam Brownback is pro-life, Romney is, well, not quite there yet. That does not make him a "bottom feeder" or a "bozo" or worse. The author shows he cares most about having a job where he gets noticed by being outrageous (i.e, untruthfull or misleading) enough to one day land another "more powerfull" job. The immature manner in which some people treat this very important process, and the good people running, shows, um,immaturity. And for those anti-Catholics (meaning anti-Christians, see your church history) using "hail Mary" references to plant bigotry- try the Socialist or Comunist Party. Maybe the democtrat Party? Republicans respect Judeo-Christian values, even those held by Mormons or Jesws - or any other group you might want to criticize. In short, you only attack Brownback because you are afraid he can win. That's a prophesy you are helping come true..........
