Americans for Prosperity hitting the road to rally Virginians to “Tell Tim Kaine His Policies Hurt Virginia!”

Next Week, Virginians will have an opportunity to send former part-time Governor Tim Kaine a message!

Americans for Prosperity will be rallying with fellow Virginia patriots to tell Tim Kaine that his policies do nothing to create jobs, end wasteful spending or reduce the size of government. Americans for Prosperity, a grassroots organization of citizen leaders working together to protect and advance the individual right to economic freedom, is launching “Real Facts.  Real Solutions: Tell Tim Kaine His Policies Hurt Virginia!” bus tour.

AFP President Tim Phillips, AFP VP Tracy Henke, Dick Morris, Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, Kate Obenshain, Tony Katz and other local patriots are setting out next week, June 27th-30th, to rally with fellow patriots to tell Tim Kaine that his policies do nothing to create jobs, end wasteful spending or reduce the size of government. former Governor Tim Kaine’s policies hurt Virginia’s families, saddling the state with debt and proposing higher taxes.

AFP state director Audrey Jackson reminds us that;

Kaine supported government-run health care, and he supported a billion dollars in tax increases. When Governor in 2005 he inherited a $1.2 billion surplus, yet he left Virginians with a $4.2 billion budget shortfall when he left office.  In addition, he increased Virginia’s debt by nearly 50% and he continues to stand by President Obama’s failed policies. Virginia can’t afford more of these disastrous policies. Join us in telling Tim Kaine that his policies hurt Virginia!

AFP rebutts Andrea Mitchell and the main stream media

By now, most of us have heard of the efforts of one Andrea Mitchell and her cohorts at MSNBC to edit video from a recent campaign speech to paint Mitt Romney as “out of touch”. Her report was immediately exposed by the blogosphere (SooperMexican) for deceptively distorting Romney’s real message of the efficiency of the free market and entrepreneurial enterprises in the private sector vs.the extreme inefficiency of a red tape laden, bloated federal government, run by bureaucrats. A point that Romney delivered very effectively.

While the “new media” was effective in shining a light on this latest attempt by the main stream media to contribute to the re-election of President Obama and even forced a flaccid near-retraction by Mitchell, the sad truth is that the damage is done. A large segment of the electorate heard the lie but may not have heard the truth. As impactful as the conservative members of the new media are, if we are to be victorious we need help.

That is where organizations like Americans for Prosperity come in. In addition to their role as a government and legislative watchdog, they are committed to help drive the narrative. They are making the investment to reach Americans whose exposure to news is limited to the traditional main stream media outlets. Americans for Prosperity is launching a $5.5 million ad blitz across six battleground states titled “Doing Fine”. The ad makes the point that it is the president that is out of touch. That by making the ridiculous claim that the private sector is doing fine he is not only out of touch but is incapable of fixing the economy because he doesn’t understand what is wrong.
