Former Gov. Roy Barnes continues to press on the issue of mortgage foreclosures with yet another ad on the topic:
Sharp-eyed viewers noted that Barnes’ initial TV spot on the topic, which began airing last week, was graphics-heavy and misspelled the word “foreclosure.”
Here’s the script of the new, graphics-free ad:
Barnes: Georgia leads the nation in bank failures.
Female voice-over: We tried to do the right thing, but nobody would listen.
Barnes: Bankers and their lobbyists got bonuses and bailouts but you lost your home. They slapped you on the back to lend you the money and slapped you in the face when you got in trouble. When I’m governor, nobody’s going to lose their home until there is mandatory negotiation to try to save it. It’s only fair.
Male voice-over: Roy Barnes will make Georgia work again.
Target audiences are Atlanta, Macon, Savannah, Albany and Columbus, said campaign manager Chris Carpenter.
Tom Baxter of InsiderAdvantage spots what could be a subliminal message. The young boy being tossed out of his house is clutching a toy elephant.
Here’s a link to the previous discussion we’ve had on the topic of mandatory mortgage negotiations between bankers and homeowners.
