I always like when a trusted independant group says something that helps are side.   I'm hoping that this will gets lots of media play like this.

Basically: has found that Negative ads dominate the political scope this year by a rate of ten to 1.  However, republicans are the biggest offenders.

More below the fold

This can be used, despirate republicans get dirty.   According to factcheck.

Have many more negative ads
Dems focus on policy, Rethugs focus on character and often twist or make things up.

"What stood out in the NRCC's ads was a pronounced tendency to be petty and personal, and sometimes careless with the facts."

Media should be asking why should we believe these crazy republicans.....even non-partisan organizations believe Republicans are being much more dishonest then demacrats.....

Now Dems aren't perfect.....but this clearly shows as far as 2006 goes the republicans are really dirty.

Why are they being this way......they are behind and they are lying to stay in power....very simple message and it can help stop and messages from republicans catching on.

"The NRCC ads show a tendency to turn policy differences into name-calling attacks on personal character"

Lots of golden quotes and it to people on the Fench and ask....are these the people we want to leave in charge?

If this has been posted I'll delete.....but things like this can only help Dems....while we haven't been perfect we have been much better.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
