True Believers

A recent e-mail from the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) was penned by Senator Barbara Mikulski (D-MD). The e-mail solicits contributions from people on the DSCC mailing list, and begins with the question, “Is nothing sacred to these people?”

It continues…

First, Republicans spent months attacking women and families. Now they’re going after seniors. There’s no end to what they’re willing to destroy to achieve their extremist vision.

Democrats in the Senate stood up and said no when they tried to take away affordable health care, mammograms and family planning. And we’ll do it again for Medicare. But every time we fight for what’s right, a GOP avalanche of lies and attacks will follow.

That’s why the DSCC is launching a Rapid Response Project to fight back – expose the lies, defend our candidates, and hold our majority.
Senator Mikulski notes that Republicans like to portray themselves as “the reasonable ones.” She then goes on to pose a few rhetorical questions:

Was it reasonable to bring our government to the brink of a shutdown so they could attack women’s access to health care? Is it reasonable to threaten the health and well-being of seniors? And what about jobs? Why are they focusing on their extremist social agenda when millions are still out of work?
Senator Mikulski describes the formation of the DSCC Rapid Response Project, which “…will respond to GOP attacks quickly and aggressively. We won’t let a single lie remain unchallenged.”

To better coordinate efforts between the DSCC and the Obama administration, a new position has been created in the White House. Here’s a link to a Huffington Post article by Sam Stein. (Sam is a personal friend of the new director, Jesse Lee.)

Mr. Stein describes the work that will engage the time of Mr. Lee, but he fails to note that Mr. Lee is married to Nita Chaudhary, a director at Ms. Chaudhary is known for her spirited support of the “General Betray Us” campaign. She is also a staunch defender of President Obama’s health care strategy.

The Rapid Response Project, with its close ties to and now with Jesse Lee as the White House Director of Progressive Media & Online Response, is dedicated to exposing the lies of those unreasonable, extremist Republicans who are attacking seniors, women and families.

Senator Mikulski encourages all True Believers to contribute to this worthwhile DSCC project.
