John Barrow Not Waiting For Today’s Results; Up With First Ad For General In GA-12

John Barrow makes a pitch, not so indirectly, to voters who are today choosing between Rick Allen and Lee Anderson. The ad will begin today in the Augusta and Savannah media markets.

    He’s back…..Barrow the Every Man….(Complete with jeans, a rolled up sleeves and the phoney southern twang)

    Don’t worry, he won’t be around for long(just till Nov. 2nd).

    • SGa Hick says:

      If you don’t even know when the election is how accurate can your prognostication be?!?

      Once November 6th rolls around we can see if Forest Gump has avoided speaking in public enough to beat Barrow.

  2. James says:

    Where’s the memo that says “to look genuine and honest, you need to stand outside and wear ill-fitting and outdated grandpa clothing, preferably while leaning on a fence”? What’s wrong with looking like you know what the hell you’re talking about?

    • Calypso says:

      “What’s wrong with looking like you know what the hell you’re talking about?”

      Maybe he didn’t want Anderson to have the lock on that.

  3. This video demonstrates what we have been going up against the last 8 years in GA-12. Barrow is a very good campaigner, especially with his ads. This is one of the best political ads I have seen this season, which is difficult to admit. I really hope that the NRCC ads are like this and not simply just attacking Barrow left and right for the next two months. People are already tired of the Allen-Anderson mudslinging.

    I didn’t here him discuss his Obamacare flip flop votes or his support of Obama’s failed stimulus, or his support for Dodd-Frank that has shut down almost 100 Georgia banks. And stop with the fake rolled up sleeves farmer image, you are a Harvard educated trial lawyer from Athens. You aren’t fooling anybody.

  5. xdog says:

    “his support for Dodd-Frank that has shut down almost 100 Georgia banks.”

    What? Is that a new tea party talking point? Do you care to flesh out that charge a little bit?

  6. James says:

    Yeah, I was going to ask about that too. Risky, ill-advised and non-diverse lending practices cause banks to fail — not Dodd-Frank.

    • ZazaPachulia says:

      And about the “educated” bit, I’ll usually take a degree from Harvard over one from Abraham Baldwin–not always, but usually. Now Anderson’s wife seems like a pretty sharp woman. She’s got a PhD. Any word on why she didn’t run in her husband’s place?

      • I have heard a lot of compliments about her speaking ability, her intelligence, and her outgoing personality. Rep. Anderson is actually a smart and wise man. He is just not a very good public speaker, as he has indicated publicly on many occasions. He is strong one-on-one, though. A lot of people have underestimated him, but he has evidently made an impact on a lot of voters.

      • Subnuke98 says:

        It isn’t a knock on his education, its a knock on his trying to be a hick farmer to “relate” to the common man. Totally transparent.
