WATCH: Democrats Mock GOP’s Rebranding Failure In New Ad
To mark 100 days since chairman Reince Priebus released the Republican National Committee’s much-hyped post-election “autopsy,” the Democratic National Committee has released a scathing new video slamming the GOP for still being the Same Old Party.
The video highlights Rep. Don Young’s (R-AK) use of the word “wetback,” Rep. Trent Franks’ (R-AZ) claim that the number of women who become pregnant as a result of rape is “very low,” and Rep. Phil Gingrey’s (R-GA) proposal to teach traditional gender roles in grade school, among the many other signs that the GOP has learned nothing from the 2012 election.
According to a recent Democracy Corps survey, the Republican Party’s damaged brand has left it in serious danger for the 2014 midterm elections. Barring a major and surprising change in tone from the GOP, expect to see a lot more ads like this over the next 16 months.
