    That was not an interview. That was a series of slow high arcing lobs of powder puffs meant to give free air time to the Guvnah. Cox should be required to report that time as a donation to the Deal campaign.

  2. Bill Arp says:

    Erick, that was the worst interview I have ever heard. Could you have done more to pet the governor more? I understand you are a blind republican but you are only killing you own reputation by going down that far. Keep it between the lines dude.

    I must politely disagree with Mr. WeymanCWannamakerJr, a great American and Mr. Bill Arp. Yes, I AM a conservative, so let’s get that out of the way. After listening to EE’s interview with Gov. Deal I feel that appropriate and proper questions were asked and the Governor was allowed to respond them, in detail. I WOULD like to see Mr. Carter interviewed to present HIS ‘side of the story,’ which is only fair. One day, perhaps in MY lifetime, our political candidates will concentrate more on what they propose to DO for our state than the “mudslinging” about their perceived shortcomings of their opponent.

    • So if for example Jason Carter were the incumbent Governor and he potentially engaged in some sort of criminal activity, I’m sure you would be *very* upset if his Republican opponent spent time pointing that out instead of explaining his platform in detail.

      Give me a break.

        Mudslinging = pointing out ethical shortcomings of your opponent that are backed up by some semblance of evidence and fact

        Did Deal leave the money on the nightstand after this was over?

    If what Deal says is true, that Carter is working with Obama’s Chicago-based political strategists (namely David Axelrod), then that means serious challenges for the Georgia GOP because it shows that Democrats are playing for keeps and want to make Georgia a blue state over the long-term.

    • Who one’s strategists are or aren’t is a pretty weak argument to be making. Everyone running wants to win – that’s a given, except for the random protest candidate 99.999% of people are in it to win it. They hire the strategists they think will get them to 50%+1 and one measure of the worth of a potential strategist (but certainly not the only measure) is if they’ve helped their clients win in the past.

      It’s interesting to me – Republicans think Obama is evil and can’t believe Americans voted for him (if only the truth about Benghazi/the IRS/birth certificates/Obamacare etc had come out before the election…). They think the voters were duped. Well, if Carter wants to hire someone that worked on Obama and it scares Republicans so much – more power to him!

        It’s not just the donk strategists who scare Georgia gopers, it’s the diabolical gotv tools they’re bringing with them. I foresee skewing charges and group whimpering by August.

            Time for Gov. Deal to proactively address the ethics allegations against him and propose meaningful ethics legislation. He can do it but will he?

            • Three Jack says:


              The last time Deal proactively addressed his ethical problems, it cost taxpayers $3M to pay off those he proactively handled. How about he just resign like he did when congressional investigators were getting close to exposing his total lack of ethics.

            • The Last Democrat in Georgia says:

              With the presence of the tricky (and ruthless) Obama machine in this race and with the latest ethics allegations against Governor Deal, I’m afraid that his opportunity to lead the charge on meaningful ethics reform may have passed.

            Three Jack, July 21, 2014 at 12:33 pm-

            Georgia Republicans may not really truly be prepared for what they may be up against in Axelrod who combines Karl Rove’s Machiavellian-style approach with the perfectly-timed personal smears of former Chicago mayors Richard Daley I’s and II’s political machines.

              • The Last Democrat in Georgia says:

                Don’t be so sure as absentee balloting and no-receipt electronic voting are but only 2 major ways that elections can potentially be manipulated.

                I believe it was ole Gene Talmadge that used to tell the poll workers in South GA to “sit and vote a little while” if they got bored b/w the morning and evening rushes.
