    Whatever it takes i guess

    They will stop at nothing to get a votes...I have never seen a hunter look so clean.
    The cowboy boots were a nice touch as well.
    As bad as this is and as much as they are making of it....
    Hardly anyone is reporting Bloomberg saying you don't have to be very smart to
    be a farmer.

    The clip posted to Instagram last week showed Loeffler and another person in hunting gear, carrying rifles into the countryside. It did not say she was hunting or a hunter, but rather touted her as a pro-Second Amendment conservative:
    Another "reporter" who has no idea what he is looking at and as far as mini mike my opinion of him would be a serious violation of rule #9.

    Oh i know...It's funny to see the lengths they go to grab a vote and the double standard when it comes to covering things.

    How about just saying...I am not a hunter but support the right to bear arms rather for hunting or personal protection.
    The window dressing makes it look phony imo.

    Where in the ad does it even imply that the duo are hunting? I see them carrying shotguns, but they could be going to or from a range.

    You can't truly call yourself "peaceful" unless you are capable of great violence. If you're not capable of great violence, you're not peaceful, you're harmless.

    Some states require wearing orange for hunter safety. I have never worn orange to go to the range. I can see where someone would jump to that conclusion.

    I see nothing wrong with the picture from my viewpoint. It was likely staged for political gain. Some will love it and some will hate it.

    yahoo doesn't write news - that's a HuffandPuff piece.

    It does now include a correction that they are carrying shotguns, not rifles.

    Pols posing for pictures, what a novel idea.

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

    While i think her message is fine...They way it was presented is laughable to anybody who pays attention.
    The scary part is people never investigate past glimpses of what they see in a ad or on tv.

    Not the first time that type of propaganda has been used.

    A fairly weathy businessman in our area ran for congress last time around. His campaign literature was TOO MADISON AVENUE SLICK by far, with the same type of phony "designer casual clothes and never fired gun" and always with a few dogs. There was no way of knowing if he actually had dogs of his own, or which one(s) they might be. These dogs also looked like 'professional models.'

    The people who live in this area elected a person who ran a straight forward, "the real me" campaign with no frills, no slick handouts, just who he was and what he would do if elected.

    I'm thinking this slick guy might try again because he gave a very nice amount of grant money to our local dog park, and a bunch of other ones also. If you can't fool 'em, try to buy 'em - right?

    That guy honestly scares me-even more than the woman that lost in 2016.
