Beware of TV Ads

We all know this but I count on certain people and/or organizations to be upfront and honest.  Silly me, I should know better.  Just to make this clear, I usually associate myself with the Democratic Party, if I have to choose one, so choice of political party has NOTHING to do with this.

In case you have not seen the anti-Djou commercial that talks about him signing documents to allow the outsourcing of jobs overseas, blah, blah, blah, you probably will.  Of course, maybe the stations that have run the ad will catch on that it is erroneous.   We may be gullible but not for long!

The National Review Online – The Corner called it baiting. Baiting?  Not sure if it’s baiting exactly but it’s definitely an attempted “pounding,” as The Corner phrased it.  This stupidity almost worked too.

Djou FamilyCharles Djou was my original favorite and the commercial was enough to make me duck under the table in horror.  Sigh.  Fictitious nonsense.  Can we be any more irritating?

The most irritating part for me?  The ad was paid for by the Democratic Party.  You’ve got to be frickin’ kidding me!  The National Review ended their short blurb by saying, “The Democrats have, in short, invented a phony issue.”  Ya think?!?

Mr. Djou continues to be my choice.  I think he has more to offer us.  He himself said he is looking at that position rather than others because he thinks he can do us the most good there, rather than in some other position.  Okay.  We’ll see.  Don’t shirk your party, Charles; just don’t stop listening to us!

How’s this for an idea: how about posting some negative comments about the mayor?  Now there’s one that I can come up with lots of comments ripe for the picking!  Oh no, can’t do that, he’s a Democrat.  B.S.!  Political party nonsense!  That’s just one more reason that I do not, as a general rule, vote based on a candidate’s political party.

I vote for people, NOT for their party!  Show me intelligence, show me actual caring, and show me concern for the people in our communities, and then I’ll show you my vote.  Beware of the propaganda and always verify, verify, verify — be it good news or bad.

    Great post E, I agree completely. Djou is a great man with great ideas. I used to like Mufi, but now I see how many lies have been told to get the silly Rail system through. It’s crazy.

    They count those Rail jobs every year, so they can say 10,000 jobs a year, when it’s the same jobs over and over. Ridiculous!

    Hi Tony!

    Nobody really wants to talk about it all but, sorry, there it is. To be honest, Tony, I’m tired of them treating us like morons! My own party acting like I have straw between my ears!

    Now goofy Mufi is ready to bail on everything for his own personal, political gain. Hopefully everyone will see that and he will lose!

    As far as the congressional race is concerned, Djou has impressed me, from what I’ve seen of him. I just wish there was more reliable information about him for us to chew on.

    Thanks for weighing in on it, Tony! Great to see you! 🙂
