I am having a hard time understanding the campaign strategy of Seventh District Congressman Roy Blunt. In the accompanying video, Blunt apparently wants us to be deeply offended because Robin Carnahan said she wasn't going to tell the people of New York what to do about the construction of a mosque in the Ground Zero area and she didn't want New Yorkers to tell us what to do in Missouri.
The Blunt philosophy seems to be that government needs to stop interfering in our lives unless government interference can help Roy Blunt, his friends, or his campaign.
Over the past few days, the Blunt team has bombarded YouTube with a series of ads supposedly depicting Robin Carnahan as saying and doing shameful things. A whole ad posted yesterday centered around Robin speaking to a Utah group and describing Missouri as a "weird, swing state."
Note to Roy Blunt- Missouri IS a weird swing state and we ought to be proud of it.
This campaign strategy to keep on throwing one lame accusation after another at Robin Carnahan and hoping something sticks is an insult to Missouri voters.
