New RGA Ad: Ted Strickland’s Trade Hypocrisy
And now for another herky-jerky, slow-paced conversational ad from the Republican Governor’s Association:
RGA TV Ad: Ohio – Ted Stirckland “Twice” from Republican Governors Association on Vimeo.
The woman is perhaps too old to be the man’s daughter, so who is he? Obviously, he’s a businessman who became successful later in life and thus dumped the older, ugly first wife for a younger, more attractive #2. And unlike the old battle-axe, this one likes to cook!
I hope Columbus NBC 4′s Patrick Preston likes the mention of his scoop of how Ohio’s cash-for-clunker-fridges program, which in and of itself is a wasteful program designed to artificially boost the sale of refrigerators while simultaneously making second hand fridges more expensive for the working class, employed workers at a call center in El Salvador, as part of a $171,3000 state contract with Parago.
But as Ohio House Republican Leader Bill Batchelder and his caucus mentioned, the issue isn’t the trade with China. It’s hardly part of the Republican platform to want to STOP the inflow of cheap consumer goods to America. But what’s troubling is Gov. Strickland’s HYPOCRISY on trade, when taking a hard-line Pat Buchanan/Lou Dobbs anti-trade position, while voting in Congress against his own protectionist beliefs. The ad is off message.
