Perdue ad is plain wrong

From the Macon Telegraph.

Reality is vastly different. 

Why would the governor paint such an obviously inaccurate picture of Georgia’s finances? 

But the truth is that Barnes had an excellent record as far as Georgia’s finances were concerned, and it is unfair for Perdue to suggest the opposite. It also isn’t true

    Any one that uses the screen name “Bobby Kahn” has absolutley no credibility…the man is the Howard Dean of Georgia, and he deseves the majority of the credit oh why for the past few elections the Georgia Democratic party has been falling like a brick…I know of many Democrats that have said that they can wait till he goes, but hey I love him…he helps us Republicans out a lot.
    But you are only fooling your self if you think Governor Barnes had a better economic track record and budget track record than Governor Perdue. I voted for Barnes in ’98 and ’02 and so did Zell Miller, but were very proud to be voting for Sonny this time. Actually, 2004 was the first time in my life I voted straight Republican, and despite what I thought than…November will make it the 2nd time, and it may just be this way for the rest of my life…or at least until the Georgia Dems are smart enough to dump Bobby Kahn.

    Notice that was in the oppinion section of the Macon telegraph…you might as well use a quote from Cynthia Tucker and make it seem like it is factual by saying the AJC said…

    I agree MR08. Roy Barnes’s (and we COS, we might as well add Bobby Kahn) decision to expand his power by expanding Georgia government that caused Sonny to come into office picking up Roy’s mess. Sonny at least made cuts. Roy would have used the excuse to raise taxes and continued to expand government in hoping for some more patrionage for his 2000 White House run.

    Also, the editorial board of the Macon Telegraph generally makes the AJC look like a bunch of cool headed conservatives!

  4. Bobby Kahn says:

    Interestingly, the primary example of Gov. Barnes “expanding power” offered by the Senate Republicans — the independent Office of Accountability (OEA)for the various education arms of state government (Regents, DTAE, Department of Education). In light of the recent developments regarding Linda Schrenko, as well as WSB’s stories on Supt. Cox, OEA isn’t looking so bad, is it?

  5. shep1975 says:

    No, it looks like in light of the Schrenko trial, that the OEA was little more than a job program for Democrat flunkies, Bobby. It took a lot of tax payer dollars and did absolutely nothing…kind of like 130 years of Democrat rule in Georgia.

    Tsk tsk tsk. When did supply side economics become a religion? Kneel before the Invisible Hand. Why is it invisible? Take a guess.
