The commercial campaign that Mike Murphy is running as a candidate for the 5th Congressional District are the very worst example of misleading and slanderous attack adds by any politician. I am personally ashamed of him being in the Republican Party with his campaign. If he had any sense of decency he would be equally shamed by having his name attached to them.
It is obvious that Mike Murphy and his campaign staff believe that you, the voters of the 5th Congressional District in Indiana are too stupid to not be fooled my his nonsensical assertions.
The commercials try to blame Congressman Burton for run away government spending. He actually says that "as a leader in big spending Congress Dan Burton has given us staggering deficits, massive unemployment, and uncertain future."
He's kidding right? Murphy is trying to say that Burton voted for any of this, instead of leading the fight against it, so does that mean that Mike Pence is also part of the big spending problem in Washington? Was Reagan? This is pure nonsense aimed at what he must believe are truly stupid voters. I am infuriated how Murphy is showing his disrespect for the voters of Indiana. He is acting like a Congressman, he is acting like those Democrat Congressmen who have no problem lying to their constituents assuming they are ignorant to know the difference.
Mike Murphy, if you want to run a campaign against Dan Burton, one of the most consistent strong conservative leaders in all of D.C., why don't you take the hundreds of votes that Dan Burton has made in the last year and a half and tell us how you would have voted differently in any one of them? That would be of value to your voters it would show them where you would actually make a difference, if you would. If you had voted the same as Dan Burton did in each of those votes, and if you are truly a conservative, you would have, would that mean that you would have been to blame that you were out voted by more democrats?
Ronald Reagan gave us the 11th Commandment, "Thou Shall Speak No Ill of Other Republicans." Not only have you smashed that one, you are simply lying to the people, while that is a very Democrat thing to do, it shouldn't be accepted by any Republican.
