It looks like Tennessee has their own wannabe Doug Jones
When Alabama’s cowardly caretaker junior senator from the great state of Alabama was running for office, he argued that he would represent the state of Alabama and not the Democratic Party, at least according to what he told the Associated Press.
An excerpt from the AP:
“I’m going to consider anything,” said Jones, explaining that he doesn’t plan on labelling himself a progressive or a conservative Democrat but a “Doug Jones Democrat.”
In Tennessee, Phil Bredesen is now trying to play the same game. His lie was a little more brazen, though.
During the confirmation fight, and before the coveted Taylor Swift endorsement, Bredesen told potential Tennessee voters he would vote for Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
It’s just not true.
James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas got the following quotes from the Bredesen team and they accidentally told the truth:
When asked to clarify that Bredesen is only saying he’d vote for Kavanaugh to “get the Republican vote,” Amalla, a field organizer for Bredesen’s campaign, affirmed, “Yes.”
Amalla reiterated, “[Bredesen] thought that like by coming out in support [of Justice Kavanaugh] that it would get more republicans on his side. He wasn’t doing as well in the rural parts.”
“[B]etween you and me, once Phil actually gets into the Senate, he’ll be a good Democrat.”
So, if you listen to Bredesen staff, given the opportunity, he would have more likely than not cast a vote against Kavanaugh just like Jones did.
The chances of Southern red state Democrats getting elected if they tell the truth is very slim. It is becoming clear that they know this and they are willing to deceive the public. And the media will help them win elections.
How they can stay after showing their true colors is becoming their biggest problem.
