  •  Why is noone punishing Harold Ford? (1+ / 0-)

    Especially the Obama campaign team?

    Are they afraid of him like they are Fox News?

    I sure hope not, Ford is not elected to anything, he doesn't fundraise, he works for noone else but Morgan Stanley and Joe Scarbourough.

    He is being used in an attack ad on Obama.

    Would it really be so much for Axlerod or someone to throw that clown hard under a bus.

    Really now, who would we allienate, who accept for Wall Street and maybe Mika Brezinski are friends with that POS.

    But the point of this post, I guess its all the same, the voters aren't paying attention to one web add.

    But if Harold Ford keeps doubling down, we will soon have our first wannabe Lieberman, except Ford is such a loser, he couldn't stay in office (I would argue wouldn't, any human would rather make millions in banking and TV)

    Even Chris Mathews throws in a jab at Ford, something verboten at MSNBC, since they all "work" together

    I would hope our Superpac's would spend 50$ making a web ad tearing this clown to shreds,  pay me 25, it's not hard, just search this site for the many posts where we did just that when he tried to run for Governor.

      He is already a GOP tool...so much so that the GOP didn't pay him any mind the last 2 years...he only got in an ad after Booker, someone far higher on the "Democratic" up and comer scale said something...

      Ford is a Wall St. Lobbyist...he is easily diffused...Booker has a higher Q factor...

      •  Very true, but he wears that former (D) badge (0+ / 0-)

        on his sleeve every other day on Morning Joe.

        Sheeeet I think he was even on the MTP this year.

        Something has to give, like I said in another post we are going to have plenty of backstabbers this year.

        We let Lieberman pretty much get away with CAMPAIGNING with McCain scot free (and took away all of Specter's seniority for one slip up)

        Can't the caucus give a former rep the boot from the party?

    •  The Obama campaign attacking Harold Ford (3+ / 0-)

      Would be like Floyd Mayweather challenging me to a boxing match.

      They aren't punishing him because he's a nothing and a nobody. They would only elevate him and his critique by attacking him.  Hell, if Booker wasn't on MTP, I'd almost say the same for him. Almost.

      You don't punch down in politics. Harold Ford works at Merrill Lynch right now because his national political career was a joke. Everything the guy does is phony and everybody knows it. I know people think that its shocking he was even competitive in that '06 senate race, but he should have had that election in the bag. His shameless airport stunt confronting Corker was so amateurish and weasely that it validated the notion in most people's minds that he was manufactured in Washington to win a race in Tennessee. He is a spent political force. If he wans't Morning Joe Scarborough's favorite psuedo-Democrat, nobody would even give him air time. His name isn't even worthy of rolling off David Axelrod's tongue.

      •  You are very right, I have watched him for years (0+ / 0-)

        I think he also was chair of DLC until it disintegrated.

        Punching down would be an understatement :)

        Let's not forget Evan Bayh, he hasn't made headlines but Fox news will exact their blood through his contract.

        Fortunately for us, he's not nearly as bright as Ford, but is tied at the hip to Third Way lobby group and Mark Penn.

        Hopefully on that silly show he is on, a good dem will slip in and clown him on his infamous pedicures.

      •  All true (0+ / 0-)

        And besides, having to kiss Joe Scarborough's ass daily is punishment enough.

        I make fun of Current a lot, but it doesn't extend to the Bill Press show.
