Updated: Recycled Barnes Ad

New voiceover bolded.

Male voiceover: “A governor can create jobs by selling the advantages of Georgia to firms looking for a home. But it would be hard for industry to take us seriously if our governor was named one of the most corrupt in Congress, hid loans, had millions in debt, and filed false reports.

Barnes: “We can’t bring jobs to Georgia with the rest of the country laughing at us. I’ll make Georgia work.”

Male voiceover: “Roy Barnes created 235,000 jobs. He can do it again.”

    Old news is old. Barnes was airing this ad or something very similar a couple months ago; they shelved it when they started focusing on the Deal ethics message.

      Yeah, it’s been running for a week but was only released on the web the last day or so. It’s a recycled ad from early in his campaign. They merely changed the voice over. Still…it makes a good point.

      • bowersville says:

        This is the old ad according to AJC P/I. Galloway has the new one. The only change in the new one is the voice over. The new voice over focuses on Deal instead of the legislature.

    Laugh now punks. You won’t be laughing when Obama’s blackbag operatives stick a microchip in your genital area and extracts stems cells to make mindless Obama worshiping clones of yourself. The Georgia General Assembly is clearly ahead of the curve in protecting us from the dangers lurking in the future.

        Ha! My grampa used to tell me to avoid women who did yoga, seriously. I should have listened. The weirdest, most messed up chicks I’ve ever dated were also avid yoga enthusiasts… But they were rather bendy, which was nice.

      • Saw that story on the AJC earlier. Here’s an interesting quote…

        ‘Pat Robertson has called the chanting and other spiritual components that go along with yoga “really spooky.”‘

        But yet rising from the dead and then ascending into heaven a few days later isn’t “really spooky”.

        • CobbGOPer says:

          Yes, but that’s white Jesus spooky to scare you out of sinning, not evil brown/yellow polytheistic spooky. There’s a difference, doncha’ know?

    • Lady Thinker says:


      Three hundred years ago, society thought similar things about autopsies. Look how much has been learned to help mankind.

    It’s as though Barnes fell from the sky and was never governor and has no record.

    If Barnes wins, one of the first things business will notice is that there is a trial lawyer in the governor’s chair and that it is open season on businesses large and small. Nothing discourages entreprenuership and trade like the constant threat of endless frivolous law suits. And MDs will really get screwed because their malpractice insurance will skyrocket, but the health reform is going to cap their income.

    The only industry that will grow under Barnes will be the plaintiff’s trial lawyers bar. How do you think Barnes got rich?

    Government “creating jobs” is possibly the biggest myth of the New American Century. Politicians who think they can “create jobs” probably have no idea regarding the economic footprint left by these tax breaks, subsidies, handouts, ect… If they do know it doesn’t matter. They’re still beholdin’ to their sugar daddies.

  5. Game Fan says:

    “I promise not to create any jobs” will be item one of my political platform if I run for Governor. “Governor Game Fan” has a nice ring to it.
