The great thing about New Hampshire is that many voters are Independents so they don’t fall in line with any particular party, they vote based on candidate. Unfortunately they are treated with very little respect by New Hampshire Democrats from the Chairman of the NH Democrat Party Ray Buckley; its National Committee member Kathy Sullivan to other political pundits across the granite state like William Tucker of Miscellany Blue (a “progressive” blog). Instead of having civil discussions and debates on topics, these people choose to lie, smear and detract from the important topics that are affecting residents.
Yesterday on Twitter Sullivan accused Senator Kelly Ayotte and former Republican Gubernatorial candidate Kevin Smith of not wanting to have “gay teammates”. Buckley accused Ayotte and NH Republican Party Chairperson Jennifer Horn of being somehow involved or approving of a parody Twitter account of the casino lobbyist that Governor Hassan may consider for Attorney General. Tucker actually accused Republicans of “capitalizing on Newtown” because they are trying to get gun manufacturers to set up business in New Hampshire.
None of the above is true of course but that doesn’t stop Democrats from spreading the lies and smears. Ayotte and Smith have never said anything to make people believe they are homophobes. There are many parody Twitter accounts created every day. To think Ayotte or Horn even know about any parody accounts is childish. And Tucker seems to forget that it was Democrats who tried to “capitalize on Newtown” by putting strict gun control laws into place due to a psychotic madman. Gun manufacturers have claimed they will leave states where gun laws are passed that are absolutely ridiculous. Republicans are “capitalizing” on the stupidity of Democrats in other states.
Democrats have been doing this for a very long time and had a horrendous record of it during the last election cycle. An ad for Representative Annie Kuster lied to scare seniors; Buckley lied about a candidate’s comments regarding abuse in one of the most egregious smears ever to become a political ad; Representative Carol Shea-Porter demonized her own constituents, lied about her record and Kathy Sullivan treated women as if they are complete twits. They began last season with the biggest lie of them all when Jan Schmidt, now a State Legislator, purchased a website for the Nashua Democrats that touted their fake GOP ‘War on Women’.
It appears that Democrats are going to continue their cycle of abuse against voters. New Hampshire voters deserve better. They need the truth in an honest debate about issues. Democrats seem to be detracting from their increases in taxes and fees; both which will hurt residents; their growth of government and the spending they wish to increase. These are the important issues that NH residents need to know about. These are the issues that affect NH residents on a daily basis. The games Democrats are playing are not only childish but show just how little respect they have for voters.
