In the middle of the #GOPshutdown fight when it was time for real leaders to stand up and speak out against the hostage takers and Tea Party crazies--Michelle "No Backbone" Nunn was afraid to take a stand...
Nunn $raising email on shutdown: "neither side of the debate is facing the very real imperative to address our growing national debt" #gapol

Well, now that the dust has cleared (and obviously the polls taken) and everyone from the Grandma down the street, to the US Chamber of Commerce, and even Grover "drown the Government in the bath tub" Norquist is criticising the #GOPshutdown Nunn has finally decided to be bold and side with the rest of us and call for No More Shutdowns!!!
Way to take a stand Michelle, it'd be hilarious and such a classic reminder of why Nunn is wrong for Georgia if it wasn't so pathetic and dangerous since she's the candidate funded by the 1% this election.
Nunn is probably making symbolic gestures that say and show absolutely nothing about who she really is fighting for and what policies she actually supports because she can't take an actual stand on issues that matter. The 1% won't allow her to stand up for working people of Georgia. Michelle "No Backbone" Nunn is looking to hand the keys to the 1% once in office.
Nunn's economic views have been called nonsense by Dean Baker of the Center for Economic and Policy Research
It looks like even the Democrats in Georgia have to make up nonsense about out of control government spending http://t.co/jDykQzkr28and she's done nothing but use Pete Peterson Fix the Debt talking points all campaign. That's why Nunn is making an empty statement after the crisis has passed and even GOP members of Congress are admitting it was a mistake. Now that no one wants to shutdown the Government again Nunn is calling for us all to stand with her and say NO MORE SHUTDOWNS!!--This is the kind of bold Democratic leadership[sic] that got us in to Iraq.

Orwell once had some insight about the political language and vacuous statements coming out of the Nunn campaign this election. It has been an exquisite model in saying a whole lot without saying anything at all and we as Democrats have been down this road before...
Better to vote for a No Name this primary than "a name" funded by the 1% who has no spine...
