Democrats say ‘Boo!’ to Nathan Deal

This tough TV spot comes from the state Democratic party:

The script:

Spooky narrator, over organ music: “This Halloween, Nathan Deal’s up to his old tricks again. We let him into the Senate where he bled taxpayers and fought to humiliate women by making victims answer to their rapists.

“We let him into Congress, but he was too corrupt and resigned in disgrace during a federal investigation. Now he wants into the Governor’s Mansion, where he’ll suck the lifeblood out of Georgia.

“He’ll kill jobs and bleed our schools dry. Don’t get tricked again. In 2010, don’t let him in.”

In the reddest of the red counties in Georgia this afternoon (Oconee County), Nathan Deal had to deal with women protesting his appearance before a surprisingly small crowd with a free lunch from “the best butts in town”

Ralph, lighten up.
No doubt your guy will win, and the state that had so much promise 15 years ago will slide into a mire of toxic political chemical and graft for the GOP. We’re already an ATM for big GOP donors and their minions. The 2011 Session will be a lobbyist funded joy ride to the poor house.

Kimberly, you may need to lighten up. After all it was Roy Barnes that raided the state’s emergency fund during his last days in office. Go back and review what Sonny inherited. Before you accuse the GOP of a future ride to the poor house check out the ride Barnes already took us on.

Roy Barnes is a low life scum. Any man that would prop up a pedophile scum, Malachi York, is a complete fool. York fathered 200 childred, raped and molested women, girls, boys and even a baby!!! Why did Roy Barnes call Putnam County Sheriff Howard Sills and tell him to “back off” of his investigation? Why did Barnes host a photo op with York’s cult members? http://bibbrepublicanparty.com

While Roy was Gov I had a job and a 401K. While Deal was in Congress, he worried about a stain on a blue dress for 2 years.

nathan deal was a crook yesterday and is a crook today. he was able to borrow money from his small town bank run by casey cagle well above his stated income level until the bank failed for making loans to people well above their income level. that cost the rest of us millions of dollars and now he need to be in charge of georgia’s money. wake up voters and pull your head out of your…………….the sand.

Unfortunately it looks like the trick is going to be on those of us in Georgia with some sense, and Nathan gets the treat. Want to be his financial problems just melt away after a few months in the Governors’ Mansion? Heck after a few years as Governor Nathan might be a rich as Roy who actually made his cash the “old fashioned way”.

Here’s the easliest way I know how to decide who should be Georgia’s next Governor:

Q: ARE YOU BETTER OFF TODAY THAN YOU WERE 8 YEARS AGO?

With the REPUBLICANS in charge in Georgia, they have:

* Repealed Barnes’ property tax relief plan which INCREASED EVERY Georgia homeowner’s taxes by an average of $300 per year.
* Canceled Barnes’ planned 17 water resevoirs and spent the bond money on “Go Fish Georgia”. Then Georgia experienced the worst drought in 100 years. Nice.
* Cut school funding by $5 Billion which shortened the school year from 180 days to 142days AND caused local school boards to RAISE YOUR TAXES to cover the shortfall.
* The Federal Government had to take over the State Mental Health System because of barberic conditions and is on the verge of taking over the Department of Corrections and the State Indigent Defense for the same reason.
* Republicans have tried to destroy the Department of Transportation by sending hoochie mama Gena Evans to be a a woman wrecking crew while the state sits in gridlock.
* Republicans have turned the State Legislature into a frat house full of horny old men, sleazy lobbyists, and flat out crooks with ethical problems long enough to choke an elephant.

So Georgians, I again ask a very simple question:

ARE YOU BETTER OFF TODAY THAN YOU WERE 8 years ago???

What is really scary for the republicans is that if there is a runoff it will give the department of justice another month to complete its investigation of any interference in the conversion of car title reclassification to the private sector!

It’s not hard to figure out where Jim Galloway and the AJC stand in this election. They’ve sided with the democrats and any opponet of Nathan Deal since this campaign started months ago. I always thought the media was to remain neutral and reports facts and not rumors and lies. The Atlanta news media stinks and uses their power to try and control the outcome of this election. If you would only spend as much time trying to find something good to report about Nathan Deal as you do something negative this campaign would have been a lot better without all the mud-slinging and negative attack ads. Thanks guys and gals for a sorry job and when Nathan Deal is elected governor of Georgia on November 2nd I hope he shuts all of you out of any press information and closes the doors to the governors office to the entire Atlanta Metro news media. Ever wonder why FOX NEWS is kicking you’re butts. It’s not hard to figure this one out.

“it will give the department of justice another month to complete its investigation”

If the DOJ is investigating, and they probably are since Deal is a Republican, they shouldn’t have any problem with time. They can use the time they are NOT spending working on the case of Black Panthers intimidating voters at a polling place. They can also pick up a little more time since they have squashed the Arizona law regarding illegal aliens – excuse me, “undocumented democrats”. I’m sure there are many more instances that don’t immediately come to mind now that would further provide them the time they need.

First, if the Bush DOJ passed on it, they were wrong, too. Do either of you think that if a white male had been observed in KKK regalia outside a polling place, it would have been “passed” on? I doubt it very much. Where does that leave us? It’s OK for some to intimidate, but not for others? By the way, the DOJ was working on this case when the Attorney General ordered it stopped. Wonder why that was?

Good advert especially the bats. But even bats have more class than Nathan Deal. A more fitting animal who resembles deal is some kind of serpent.

For sure Nathans first act if elected will be to suck some money out to pay for his debts and a little extra to maybe set up his deadbeat family again.

You are well and truly effed. And the same for your kids and their kids. If you had a clue how effed you really were, you would be puking and crying instead of posting and sniping. Lube it well as the pain will be severe.
