Florida Representative Alan Grayson Digs Himself a Hole (http://www.thenewamerican.com/index.php/usnews/politics/4755-florida-representative-grayson-digs-himself-a-hole)

Perhaps sensing an inability to defeat his opponent based on the issues, Florida Representative Alan Grayson has resorted to fact distortion in an attempt to win the reelection to the House. In a a political advertisement put out by Grayson, the deceptive Democrat attempted to equate his Republican challenger, former state Senator Daniel Webster, to the Taliban for his allegedly “fanatical religious beliefs.” Unfortunately for Grayson, FactCheck.org did its homework and uncovered Grayson's ruse.
Grayson's political advertisement manipulated video footage of Daniel Webster to make it appear Webster was commanding wives to submit to their husbands, quoting a passage in the Bible. The ad shows the clip a total of four times. According to FactCheck.org, however, “Webster was cautioning husbands to avoid taking that passage as their own. The unedited quote is: 'Don't pick the that say, 'She should submit to me.''”

Webster appeared on Fox News to clarify the issue:

“I was talking about the idea of praying for your wife, but don't pray to her the verses that say 'Submit to me' because that's her responsibility. You as a man, as a father, and as a husband have responsibility. So I was saying you focus on your responsibility, not on hers.”

Full video footage reveals Webster counseling husbands by instructing them to choose Biblical verses that address the role of the husband, such as “Love your wife even as Christ loved the church and gave himself for it.”

Webster's wife, Sandy Webster, responded to the ludicrous claims made by Grayson that Webster was comparable to the Taliban based on his alleged marital views on yesterday's episode of Fox & Friends on the Fox News Channel:



He was encouraging men to love their wives and [Grayson] totally took it out of context because he was trying to teach men to pray for their wives and what to pray and how to love their wives more everyday. It's being portrayed that we should be some subservient slaves or something but that's just untrue.


Sadly, Grayson's campaign manager Susannah Randolph attempted to justify the advertisement by refocusing attention on Webster's record of “social conservatism.”

“Webster's record on women is starting to get out there. As soon as they realize he sponsored a bill to outlaw divorce, opposes abortion in cases of rape and incest, and voted for cuts in funding to domestic violence shelters, they'll see he's incredibly anti-women.”

Ironically, Webster has the lead over Grayson when it comes to female voters. Jim Lee, president of Voter Survey Service, indicates, “[Women] really loathe [Grayson].” Sunshine State News reports, “With Grayson's 33/53 favorable/unfavorable rating among women, Webster's lead among females is much stronger (45/33 over Grayson) compared to a statistical tie (41/40 Webster) among males.”

Democratic and Republican voters alike have come out against Grayson for his false allegations, calling his actions “a disgrace.” In fact, the advertisement has cost Grayson 7 points in the polls, according to the Weekly Standard:

“It turns out smearing your mainstream Republican, Baptist opponent as Talibanesque by altering video footage of him doesn't play that well in a moderate House district or among Independents. Thanks to his ridiculous rhetoric and just-released 'Taliban Dan' ad, Representative Grayson is now running seven points behind Republican Dan Webster, according to a Sunshine State poll.”

The poll shows Webster ahead of Grayson, 43 to 36 percent. As it currently stands, Grayson is now more unpopular in the state of Florida than President Obama.

Likewise, since the discovery of Grayson's despicable stunt, Webster has managed to raise an additional $70,000.

Perhaps most impressive is the immediate condemnation of Grayson from even liberal outlets like the Annenberg Public Policy Center and the Orlando Sentinel.

Andy Sere of the National Republican Congressional Committee contends that because of Grayson's actions, the Central Florida district is “ripe for a Republican pick-up,” asserting that “a large swath of independents and conservative Democrats will hand him a resounding defeat in November.”

According to FreedomWorks, Grayson has “drawn the ire” of the Tea Parties through his controversial rhetoric, style and television ads. Tom Gaitens of Florida's FreedomWorks claims, “Grayson is an obnoxious antagonist to Tea Partiers ... he's probably the biggest lightning rod-type candidate in the nation.”

He can't. This ad has backfired bigtime, and as a result, I think Grayson is toast.

We are probably better off without him, but I did so enjoy watching him make Ben Bernanke squirm in a hearing once... :D

RP just needs to up the ante. Hopefully some of the new blood coming into Congress will have some fire in the belly.

Thanks to EndDaFed for the context. That was some really bizarre editing.

Not surprising. His district of Florida tends to go Republican. He got into office when Bush was in power and Republicans were hated. Grayon's outlandish remarks towards Conservatism didn't seem to do him any good.

Why are there 0 principled/honest people on the left? Can anyone name at least 1 so I can be more aware of them? Not saying that republicans are principled either, but thankfully we have RP.

Grayson has always seemed to me to be a smartass sleazebag. Even though he may have had some agreement with Dr. Paul for the wrong reasons.

He is probably the most arrogant , out of touch person I can think of off the top of my head . He would make a great DNC chairman .

I would say Bernie Sanders is pretty principled. After hearing some of his defense, I think he watered down his audit the fed provision so it could pass. He said the original couldn't pass, and I think DeMint proved Sanders right when introduced the bill and it got voted down.

Maybe this one time audit will provide enough outrage to support the original bill.

On the other hand, Sanders could just be a sinister bastard, and just watered it down to provide a political out for the other senators.

Sinister sounds about right .
