Tea Party out for revenge with early attack on Patrick Murphy (still stinging from Allen West/Carl Domino smackdowns)?

You can read the entire story at SaintPetersBlog. Here is what Congressman Patrick Murphy had to say about this silly political ad:
     In addition to opposition of EXIM [Export-Import Bank of the United States], Murphy’s campaign points out other radical right-wing positions taken by the Club [Club for Growth], which was formerly led by Republican Sen. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania. The group’s main issues include privatization of Social Security, raising the retirement age for benefits and plans to turn Medicare into a voucher program.

     Murphy also argues that the 30-second ad favoring Grayson is proof that Republicans are “afraid” of the Jupiter Democrat’s campaign.
     “The fact that an ultra-right-wing Super PAC that aims to privatize Social Security is attacking Patrick is the clearest sign that he’s the strongest candidate in this race,” Murphy campaign manager Josh Wolf said in a statement. “Patrick entered public office to fight back against Tea Party obstructionists like the Club for Growth, who are intent on outsourcing Florida jobs overseas and privatizing Social Security and Medicare.”
Here is the silly political ad and note that alarming voice of impending doom, the "corporate fat cats", and "giant corporations":
Do voters still fall for this stuff from the Tea Party? The Tea Party thinks so.
