Politics of Desperation: #Democrats Out of the Gate Trashing Kay Hagen Opponent Thom Tillis

Well, that didn't take long.

Kay Hagan can't run on the issues, and she especially can't run on ObamaCare (in fact she can't run fast enough from it), so her campaign is out with talking points attacking the Republican Senate nominee Thom Tillis, "MEMO: THOM TILLIS’ TOP VULNERABILITIES" (at Memeorandum).

It's a laundry list of allegations and smears, and I'll leave it up to North Carolinian conservatives to debunk the junk.

It's just very telling how fast the left has gone on the attack, with so much at stake in November's Senate elections, and Hagan's precarious political position in particular. Face it, leftists are f-king desperate and they'll do anything to win. We're beyond mudslinging. Depraved Democrats are going to murder this guy's character. Indeed, they'd murder him if they could, to get him out of the way.

See the hack Democrat operative with a byline Greg Sargent, at WaPo, "47 percenter-ism is back!":

This video was taken in 2011, but even Tillis himself appeared to understand his remarks were controversial, noting that such views could “get me railroaded out of town.” The Hagan campaign is circulating the video today, but observers who have been paying close attention to the race have known for some time that Tillis, the state House speaker, has a more conservative record than is commonly appreciated, one Dems might utilize to their advantage.
Basically, they're trying to Romney-ize him, a morally despicable attack which reveals --- once again --- the left's utter inability to run a legitimate campaign on the issues. I mean, seriously. Hagan's so desperate she's sunk to lying about Tillis' alleged "support" for ObamaCare? Pretty sleazy, I know: "Vulnerable #Democrat Kay Hagan Falsely Accuses GOP Opponent of Supporting #ObamaCare."

I'll be keeping close tabs on this race. Stay tuned.
