“The Republican Party, in Oregon and nationally, has been at the forefront of many of our state and country’s greatest accomplishments. At a time when our state and country are facing some of the most serious challenges in our history, this ad will educate and inform Oregonians of the strong legacy of the Republican Party,” said Chairman Bob Tiernan. “The core Republican principles of fiscal responsibility, limited government and promoting freedom are needed now more than ever to address the serious issues confronting our state and country. As they have in the past, I am confident that it will be Republican ideas and leadership that will guide us back into prosperity,” concluded Chairman Tiernan.

The new ad will also be featured on the ORP’s updated website: www.oregonrepublicanparty.org.

    This is a joke, right? It looks like a Saturday Night Live skit.

  • Eddie

    It’s a well-made commercial.

    It’s a sad state of affairs, though, for the Oregon GOP that their go-to issues are:

    1. The Beach Bill – Something done by Tom McCall (the least-Republican Republican ever) that took land away from a private hotel owner… (So I guess the Oregon GOP is now in favor of government takings?)

    2. Electing the first African-American Congressmen – something that happened back in the 1800s when the South was solidly Democratic and the elitist urban centers were Republican.

    3. Nominating O’Connor – who is not going to overturn Roe v Wade anytime soon.

    4. Keeping taxes low – OK, that’s a gimmie.

    5. Creating a National Park – … and do we assume that today’s GOP is equally in favor of taking such natural resources out of our battery of working forests?

    6. Keeping America the Land of the Free – Well, that’s certainly a bold statement.

    So in summary, am I to understand that the only way that this ad reflects the Oregon Republican Party of today is that they’re in favor of low taxes and keeping America “free”? I certainly hope that Mr. Tiernan didn’t pay very much money for the message polling that undoubtedly went into this script.

    The ad would have done better to list all the things Republicans are against. Like…minimum wages, unions, teachers, public schools, environment, transit, planning, Latinos, public health insurance for old people and poor people, public beaches (see above,) forests that have actual trees in them (see above,) any wildlife that cannot be shot or hooked and eaten, alternative energy, Democrats, liberals, a woman’s right to choose, but not the right to choose death if one is dying anyway, and so forth.

    What are they for? Tax cuts and more highways.

      “Tax cuts and more highways.”

      Sounds good to me!

      • Eddie

        Sounds good to me too! I’m glad that they didn’t use that (I’m a Democrat).

        Interesting that the polling suggested that they latch on to traditionally Democratic issues in addition to the low taxes standby. Which means that if the message testing holds until the midterms, Republicans are going to have to make an interesting strategic choice:
        1. Maintain their conservative stances and risk losses, or
        2. Misrepresent their stances to sounds more like Democrats, or
        3. Honestly move towards the left.

        Should make for interesting primary elections though.

  • anonymous

    Why didn’t they add: thanks for freeing the slaves and preserving the union?

  • Anonymous

    thank you for defeating communism and fighting moslem fascism.

  • John L

    Seriously? The Oregon Republican Party is asking people to thank them for public taking of private lands, and keeping the Supreme Court from banning abortion?

    Umm… yeah… thanks a bunch, guys.

    It’s like “The Talented Mr. Ripley.” The GOP is going to murder the Democratic Party and then steal it’s identity!

  • oregonfirst

    Thanks to the losers party for losing big time, please keep it up to protect us from your GREED – that is what I want to thank the Republicans for! And thanks for alienating so many, thanks for having only self serving old rich white guys at the top, thanks for valuing money more than universal health, thanks for not having any viable candidates – and please, please, cling to religion and Sarah Palin as the future of your LOSING PARTY – American needs you to KEEP LOSING!

      I don’t see you lining up to pay residential taxes on your hobby farm. The State needs your money, walk the walk and give up your phony tax break.
