Angle ad hits Reid for Ritz Carlton apartment

(CNN)– Is Harry Reid too "Ritzy" to understand the plight of the average Nevada voter? That's the charge made in Republican Senate candidate Sharron Angle's latest ad.

The ad, paid for by the National Republican Senatorial Committee, targets Reid for living in a luxury apartment at the Ritz Carlton in Washington while Nevadans are losing their homes to foreclosure and the state has the nation's highest unemployment rate.

This is not the first time Angle has brought up Reid's Ritz residence; she mentioned it in last Thursday's debate, contrasting it with her middle-class lifestyle in Reno. Reid called Angle's attacks on his wealth a "low blow."

    Angle is hitting Reid with non-issues. She has no real platform, why should anyone vote for her?

    When you are under intense pressure, divert from the issues and get personal. I like it, but not so much.

    This is the same woman who said that as senator it would not be her responsibility to help create jobs for Nevadians. I am so sick of the tea baggers lying and spinning everything. Sharron Angle has got to be one of the silliest women in politics next to Sarah Palin, Christine O'Donnell, Michele Bachman, ................ Geez!

    He worked hard, was a successful attorney and invested well. What happened to the Teatards complaining about people hating on those who are successful? I gues this is just more "IOKIYAR."

    And Meg Witman has spent over 140 million dollars to buy the California Governors office and there are little children dieing everyday in America without healthcare. The wealthy of this nations is greedy.

    Todd Palin is a mamma'a boy, Say no to his Sugar Mamma and send all Tea Bagger's packing.

    I am sure it all comes out of our tax money, like Pelosi's private plane. Michelles grand tour of Spain. Yes, these Democrat liberals are all for the small guy trying to make a living and like our corrupt, incompetent, inept president says we don't want to go backwards and that the Democrats will protect the sheeple. Lying, corrupt, hypocrites.

    I see Harry Reid is disconnected from Nevadans. Too bad Sharron Angle is disconnected from reality.

  23. William Jefferson

    So? He is the majority leader of the United States Senate. Is he supposed to get a room at motel 8? how farking stupid is this woman?

    It might be well to note that she does not know an Hispanic from an Asian, thinks that we should eliminate the 14th Amendments, and knows so little of the Constitution that it staggers and boggles the mind of even the average high school student.

    And where would Ms. Second Amendment live if she came to DC? The YWCA? This woman is a joke.

    So, I guess its okay for the taxpayers of Texas to play $10,000/mo plus "expenses" for Gov Perry's housing. This is just a
    little sprawling ranch type home with 5 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, two dining rooms, etc. This home, of course, is State owned
    and pays NO mortgage, His cuts include 1 chef, plus a part-time chef, (guess he had 2 or 3 before), and the list is endless,
    Of course there are the Tea Party Darlings : Palin had to repay Alaska for charging housing costs while living in her own home,
    after she got caught and O'Donnell who paid bills and housing with campaign money. Selective criticism is what
    Republicans do best. Since the National Republican Senatorial Committe paid for this ad, guess the "rift" between the
    dumb and dumbers has been fixed. There are no words to describe this pathetic turn of events.
