It seems like everyone wants to imply in DeKalb County that they have been endorsed by the First Couple Of The Universe. Indeed, after DeKalb CEO Vernon Jones’ advertisement dispute concerning his implied endorsement from U.S. Senator Barack Obama and a similar implied endorsement for DeKalb County Commission District 4 candidate Sharon Barnes-Sutton in another advertisement which featured Barnes-Sutton and Obama embracing under a headline of “Together, we Can!” comes yet another instance of a DeKalb County candidate trying to suggest to the electorate that he, too, has been given an endorsement by Those Who Will Save Us.
In the July 10, 2008 edition of CrossRoads News is an ad from DeKalb County CEO candidate Stan Watson, currently a member of the State House. At the top of the ad yet another inspirationally vapid comment from Jehovah is placed. However, at right is featured a photo of Watson with Michelle Obama, who I am told is now proud of her county for the first time. (LARGE PHOTO OF AD)
A review of the endorsement page on Watson’s campaign website features a long list of those who support his candidacy…but Michelle and Barack Obama are curiously not listed.
Watson should be embarrassed for deliberately attempting to mislead the electorate into believing that there is some sort of connection between the Obama’s and him.
