Lee Terry has his final ad of the 2010 campaign up.
See it here:
A good closing piece for Terry. This campaign has been about jobs and the future of the country and the Obama/Pelosi plan's impact on them. It is good that Terry is at a business talking about the importance of this election on the prosperity of America.
(And he also has a great tan.)
A couple of things about the the anti-recall press conference the other day:
What was their point, again?
Oh yeah, it was "A recall would be TERRIBLE for the city." How terrible? "REALLY terrible." (We're paraphrasing.)
Comedian Brad Ashford claims that Omaha would be a laughingstock if it recalls its Mayor.
In this political climate, that is not likely to be the message at all. We would suggest that it would be bellwether.
The story that would go out nationally would be, Suttle campaigned on a pledge to not raise taxes. When he got into office, among other things, he immediately raised taxes. This pissed off the people and the people sent him packing.
That's not a laughing matter. That's a message.
The only decent point made at the presser was from P.J. Morgan who gave an actual example of how changing the guard would have complicated matters when he was negotiating with Campbells back in 1993.
And that may have been true back then, but is there anything to show that Suttle is making similarly shrewd decisions now? Maybe there are, and maybe there aren't. But that hasn't been the focus of the ANTI groups.
Their message has been, "Costs too much!"
Of course, that has been the message of the PRO recallers as well...
And Dick Holland says he "very suspicious of the recallers".
This from the sugar-daddy of the Democrats? The guy who is funding a group to steal web addresses, slur candidates and make secret videos?
Well that's rich.
And the gang at the Objective Conservative posts an interesting question about the tax implications of Forward Omaha's hiring of hundreds of employees at $150 a pop, and whether they are filing all the appropriate documents with those understanding folks at the IRS.
We don't know the answer, but my, that could be a pickle.
And as we get pumped about Saturday's game, could the Governor of Missouri have put up a more lame item against Governor Dave's Omaha Steaks?
Black and Gold candy? That's the stuff that stays at the bottom of your bowl after you've finished all the Snickers and Butterfingers.
Ya got some wax candy to go with that Governor Nixon?
