Since this website is off-limits to those in the Perdue campaign, I guess this will fall on deaf ears, but this has been stuck in my craw since I’ve seen it and wanted to get your feelings on the matter.
Ever since I first saw this ad, I have thought one particular section was worded poorly. After reviewing it, I have clearly heard it incorrectly everytime I have watched it.
In the beginning, the announcer talks about the terrible state our State was in prior to Sony’s election but when listing the problems, the announcer ends with (what sounds like) “and we elected Sonny Governor.” In actuality, the announcer says, “then we elected Sonny Governor.”
Here’s the video for you to see:
Either way, it almost sounds to me as if electing Sonny was part of the announcer’s greivances, not as the turning point for solving these crises – which is the crux of the ad. Personally, I think they should have said, “but we elected Sonny.” That way, there would be no ambiguity to the statements whatsoever.
I know this is nit-picky, but it’s a slow newsday and like I said, this has been bugging me.
Regardless, Governor Perdue had my vote at “hello” – he completes me.
