Ad: John Boehners electile dysfunction

The primary challenger running against John Boehner is out with a new ad spoofing the speaker’s “electile dysfunction.”

In the Cialis-like spot titled “When The Moment Is Right,” tea party candidate J.D. Winteregg also takes some not-so-subtle jabs at Boehner for the Ohio Republican’s smoking, golfing and tan.

“Other signs of electile dysfunction may include extreme skin discoloration, the inability to punch oneself out of a wet paper bag, or maintain a spine in the face of liberal opposition,” the ad said, which was posted to Winteregg’s YouTube channel on Sunday.

“Your electile dysfunction? It could be a question of blood flow. Sometimes when a politician has been in D.C. too long, it goes to his head and he just can’t seem to get the job done,” the voiceover says as footage of Boehner shaking hands with President Barack Obama plays. “If you have a Boehner lasting more than 23 years, seek immediate medical attention.”

The one-minute ad also shows footage of the two golfing, with the candidate appearing at its end.

“I’m J.D. Winteregg and I approve this message, but I don’t golf,” he says.

Campaign ad: John Boehner has “electile disfunction”

J.D. Winteregg Boehner electile dysfunction

The Speaker of the House’s primary challenger wants voters to consider an important question: Does John Boehner (R-Ohio) have electile dysfunction?

J.D. Winteregg, a high school teacher looking to take down one of the most powerful Republicans in Congress, released a campaign ad on Sunday that was styled exactly like a commercial for Viagra, a drug that helps men with erectile dysfunction.

“You make a great team,” the ad’s narrator says. “It’s been that way since the day you met. But your electile dysfunction? It could be a question of blood flow. Sometimes, when a politician has been in D.C. too long, it goes to his head and he just can’t seem to get the job done.”

The narrator goes on to promise that Winteregg will keep the border secure, protect Americans’ Second Amendment rights and defund Obamacare and Planned Parenthood.

But how will a voter know if Boehner really does have electile dysfunction? Side effects include skin discoloration and golf. And, of course, if your Boehner lasts too long, be sure to seek immediate medical attention.

John Boehner slams Keystone XL delay as ‘shameful’

John Boehner’s Tea Party Foes Host "Retirement Party"

WASHINGTON — Tea party activists are sending out invitations for a “surprise retirement party” for House Speaker John Boehner, targeting inside-the-beltway Boehner backers and reporters.

The email invites are paid for by the Tea Party Leadership Fund Political Action Committee, a conservative organization that has spent more than $300,000 this cycle supporting 32-year-old J.D. Winteregg’s primary challenge to Boehner this year.

“We’re throwing a retirement party for our John Boehner, and 1,000 of his closest Beltway buddies are invited. I’ve pledged to get him a shuffleboard set so he can enjoy his new Florida retirement in style,” PAC spokesman Rusty Humphries said Friday.

The invites are the latest effort in a tongue-in-cheek campaign by tea party activist — and adjunct French professor — Winteregg’s primary challenge to the powerful Ohio Republicans in his May 6 primary. Earlier this month Winteregg released a commercial on YouTube parodying Cialis commercials, titled “Electile Dysfunction.”

According to a source, the invite is being sent to “1,000 of John Boehner’s closest friends and D.C. political reporters,” and asks invitees to “join 8th District primary voters in remembering 23 years of reckless spending, feckless leadership, and gutless deal-making. Wish John bon voyage as he departs Congress for his new Florida condo and a life of overtanning, bad golfing, and early bird specials.”

While it is all but certain Boehner will emerge from his primary unscathed and the challenge is unlikely to affect Boehner’s work in Congress, it could still have an impact on Congress.

The fear of primary challenges has been one of the biggest roadblocks Boehner has faced during his time as speaker, despite the relative lack of successful insurgent campaigns against incumbents. A host of moderate Republicans are facing primary challenges over the next two months, and the willingness of tea party activists to spend significant sums in Boehner’s race could harden their unwillingness to compromise with Democrats on hot-button issues ranging from the budget to immigration reform.

We’re Coming for You, John Boehner

The GOP has been hijacked. That’s right, hijacked. Over the past 100 years, an elite progressive minority has taken the Republican Party far afield from its conservative platform and the interests and values of its grassroots conservative base.

I’ll admit that, in the aftermath of the disappointments of the 2012 elections, conservatives like me are angry.

We are angry at being blamed for Mitt Romney’s defeat, when we argued from the beginning that he was a Big Government establishment politician and that if he ran a content-free campaign, he would lose.

We are angry at the disrespect shown to limited-government constitutional conservatives who were delegates to the 2012 Republican National Convention. We are angrier still when members of Congress, whom we elected, and who want to use the democratic process to push policies based on conservative principles, are told to “get their ass in line” by Speaker of the House John Boehner, and to go along with the Republican Party leadership’s betrayal of conservative principles—or else.

It’s time for conservatives to channel that anger. It’s time to take our party back.

***

In some ways, I was a Tea Partier before there was a Tea Party.

I vividly remember back in 1952 when, as a 19-year-old kid too young to vote (you had to be 21 at that time), I sat in a polling place in Houston, Texas, from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., trying to help “Mr. Conservative,” Sen. Robert Taft of Ohio, win the Republican nomination for president. It mostly ended up being a “family values” moment, when the only people to vote that day in my precinct were my mother and father.

(Sign up for Politico Magazine‘s Friday Cover email)

Republicans were rare birds in Texas in 1952, and I’m sure plenty of my college friends thought I was nuts for spending my time on politics, particularly Republican politics.

Since Reconstruction, no Republican in Texas had been elected governor or senator. Republican elected officials in Texas were few and far between, with the GOP existing largely as a patronage party to claim federal appointments during the times when there was a Republican in the White House.

From my perch out in Houston’s Harris County, it looked like Taft had it wrapped up. After all, he had won the most votes in the primaries, had the most delegates going into the Republican National Convention, and despite frontrunner Gen. Dwight Eisenhower’s status as a war hero, Taft was the favorite of the grassroots activists of the GOP.

But Taft was not the favorite of the Eastern establishment leaders of the National Republican Party; they worked all out to hand the nomination to Eisenhower, and when Senator Taft was defeated, I was surprised and disappointed, but I was not dissuaded from my interest in conservative politics.

Making sure that I was on the winning side wasn’t what interested me; making sure the right side won did.

Fast-forward to Sept. 11, 1960, and a meeting at the family home of William F. Buckley, Jr. in Sharon, Connecticut: The Sharon Statement, primarily drafted by author and educator M. Stanton Evans, and still one of the most compelling statements of conservative principles and values ever written, was adopted and signed by the 90-some young attendees.

The Sharon Statement, in its eloquent homage to liberty and limited government, has stood the test of time. With the exception of its provision regarding international Communism (for which we might today substitute radical Islam), it is still relevant. Young Americans for Freedom was launched, and with it began the modern conservative movement we know today.

Less than a year later, in August 1961, I became executive secretary of Young Americans for Freedom, and because we needed to raise money to build the organization, I began to learn how to market the conservative ideas, principles and values for which we stood.

For those born in the Internet age or after the advent of cable TV, it may be hard to imagine how difficult the job of marketing conservatism and conservative ideas was in 1961. To this day, the New York Times carries on its front page the motto “All the news that’s fit to print,” and in 1961, as it is today, liberals were largely in charge of deciding what was fit to print in the establishment press and what wasn’t.

The conservative print media was small; Human Events was an eight- to 12-page newsletter, the National Review was just getting started, and YAF’s publication, the New Guard, first edited by Lee Edwards, now a senior fellow at the Heritage Foundation, had just a few thousand subscribers.

It was hard, if not impossible, to find the conservative point of view on television. Walter Cronkite of CBS and his establishment media colleagues at ABC and NBC would go on air at 6:30 p.m., and by 7:00 p.m. America would have been told what to think— and it wouldn’t be that communism was evil and dangerous and that lower taxes, less government and more freedom were good ideas.

This remained true into the 1970s and 1980s, even as Ronald Reagan rose to national prominence and won two landslide elections.

If you were a conservative on a college campus or in a suburban neighborhood reading the newspapers and watching TV, you were marooned in a world where the elite opinion makers of New York and Washington found your ideas fit to be ignored or attacked, but not printed or aired.

The one means we had to get our message out, to share ideas and to bypass the establishment media filter was direct mail—the first and longest-lived form of new and alternative media.

I didn’t set out to change the media or the media culture by applying the techniques of commercial direct marketing to conservative politics; we simply needed money to run Young Americans for Freedom and it was my job to raise it—a job that became all the more urgent after our conservative standard-bearer, Sen. Barry Goldwater of Arizona, was obliterated in the 1964 election.

Goldwater—the candidate of the New West and conservatives— had won the Republican nomination over the strong objections of the Eastern establishment Republican leaders. Once he had the nomination in hand, they did little to help him and much to hurt him, and when he went down in flames, they were quick to blame conservatives for the party’s defeat and do their best to purge Goldwater supporters from the GOP.

–>House Speaker John Boehner speaks to the media after attending the weekly House Republican conference at the US Capitol on Jan. 28, 2014 [AFP]

House Speaker John Boehner’s Tea Party challenger in the Ohio Republican primary, J.D. Winteregg, released a parody advertisement today that accuses the speaker of suffering from “Electile Dysfunction.”

The Tea Party Leadership Fund PAC decided to back Winteregg after internal polling revealed that only 25 percent of Rep. Boehner’s constituents favored him over a generic Tea Party challenger. The PAC initiated a “two-pronged approach” similar to the one that Scott Brown used to catapult him into office: a dedicated “ground game” on the local front coupled with a national fundraising campaign.

Winteregg believes his parody advertisement will encourage such national support.

The advertisement begins like a conventional spot for a drug that treats erectile dysfunction. “Some times, when a politician has been in D.C. too long, it goes to his head and he just can’t seem to get the job done,” a voice-over says atop video of Boehner shaking hands with President Barack Obama.

“Using Winteregg in Congress on a daily basis,” the advertisement continues, “will help you every time the moment is right — for your voice to be heard at the federal level.”

“When using Winteregg, it’s important to note that the borders will be secured, Second Amendment rights protected, Obamacare and Planned Parenthood will be defunded, and common sense will be used in solving the nation’s problems.”

Over a clip of Boehner and Obama politely nodding to each other during a State of the Union Address, the advertisement claims that “other signs of electile dysfunction include extreme skin discoloration, the inability to punch oneself out of a wet paper bag or maintain its spine in the face of liberal opposition.”

“If you have a Boehner lasting more than 23 years, seek immediate medical attention,” the advertisement concludes.

Watch the Winteregg advertisement in its entirety below.

Tea Party challenger mocks John Boehner with "electile dysfunction" video

A Tea Party backed primary challenger to House Speaker John Boehner of West Chester started running an entertaining campaign ad this weekend that parodies a pharmaceutical pitch to claim he’s the remedy for Boehner’s “electile dysfunction.”

“Sometimes, when a politician has been in DC too long, it goes to his head and he just can’t seem to get the job done,” says the online ad for J.D. Winteregg, a high school teacher who resides in Troy. “Used on a daily basis, Winteregg in Congress will help you every time the moment is right to have your voice heard on the federal level.”

Spokesmen for Boehner’s political campaign and House of Representatives office did not respond to a Monday request for comment on the ad, which claims other “electile dysfunction” symptoms may include “extreme skin discoloration,” smoking, golf, and the “inability to punch oneself out a wet paper bag or maintain a spine in the face of liberal opposition.”

“If you have a Boehner lasting longer than 23 years, seek immediate medical attention,” it advises.

Although Federal Election Commission records show Winteregg’s campaign has raised about $43,000 this election cycle and spent roughly $17,000, a group called the Tea Party Leadership Fund has spent more than $300,000 to back Winteregg and oppose Boehner. Boehner’s re-election campaign typically raises and spends several million dollars in every election cycle.

Facing a May 6 primary challenge from three Republicans including Winteregg, Boehner recently began running television ads in his district for the first time in four years. A Dayton-based outside group called Freedom Vote has spent more than $95,000 to support his reelection.
