Scathing SCF ads compare Flake to McCain

Ad campaign blisters Jeff Flake

The Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF) is running a series of 60-second ads criticizing Republican lawmakers who oppose using the appropriations process to cut funding for Obamacare.  The group, which supported Jeff Flake’s 2012 U.S. Senate bid, has got him in its sights as it runs two ads eviscerating Arizona‘s craven junior senator.

This change of heart is not insignificant. The SCF was Flake’s ardent devotee, inexplicably sending him a huge bundle of cash to assist him in defeating businessman Wil Cardon, an actual conservative.

“Republicans in Congress can stop ObamaCare by simply refusing to fund it, but Senator Jeff Flake is nowhere to be found,” the narrator says in one of two hard-hitting ads. “Jeff Flake won’t stand up to President Obama and join conservatives in pledging to oppose funding for the implementation of Obamacare.”

An ad titled, “Whatever,” (click link) likens Flake to John McCain in a scathingly unflattering comparison. The new radio ad includes Flake’s dismissive “Oh, whatever” response, which he posted on Twitter. The narrator says, “Jeff Flake used to be one of us but now he’s become one of them.  “Oh, whatever? That’s something we expect John McCain to say.”

Another is “Nowhere,” detailing Flake’s refusal to sign the letter circulated by Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) pledging to oppose all funding for Obamacare in the upcoming FY 2014 continuing resolution.

Flake claims he opposes Obamacare but refuses to sign the pledge to reject any spending bills that fund the law.  Go to Don’t Fund It for more information.

    THIS ad tells the whole story as far as the Arizona Republic, USA Today and TV 12 go. I went to the Republic’s website and this was at the top of the page.

    Better enroll in Spanglish classes, folks. The newly drafted Democrat citizens won’t like having us continue to press “1” for English. Soon we will be relegated to pressing “2”. They sure as hell won’t be learning English with any great speed or fluency. This is an indicator of things to come.

  2. Clementine says:

    That “Whatever” Jeff Flake ad is priceless. I especially like the line about Flake sounding so much like what we’ve come to expect from McCain.

  3. Philip Alu says:

    Flake was never one of us he just never had a competitor.
    I think things are changing and as evidence CNN, MSNBC,NYT,and other liberal media are losing suppory.
    We have to support each other and they will burn out.

    I’d laugh except the truth contained in these ads is so distressing. All of you who voted for this schemer need to do penance. We couldn’t be damaged any more by a democrat than we are by this Flakey turncoat. At least we know what the dems are all about. Being cheated on by a supposed Republican is like finding your spouse with your best friend. Betrayal is the worst and only those we trust can inflict it.

    Not that ANY of us listen to their drivel, but you WON’T hear these ads on KFYI…just sayin’…

    • Army Of One says:

      How right you are, Doc. KFYI is in the bag for McCain. I do hope to hear them rightly rip The Flake, but I know that’s expecting a lot.

  6. AnObservation says:

    Lets make sure we don’t let another RINO sneak into the SoS office (i.e. Michele Reagan) and elect Wil Cardon for Secretary of State. Trent Franks endorsed him again today! I don’t think a Senator Cardon would be a RINO!

  7. Kimball says:

    I doubt Jeff Flake is smart enough to realize that being compared to McCain is not a compliment.
