Clinton Fights On in Ohio With New Ads

With only a few days left before the Ohio primary, Senator Hillary Clinton has new money in her pockets and ways to spend it. Her campaign reported today that the campaign raised $35 million in February. So flush with cash, the campaign bought a new TV ad and two radio spots.

The TV ad is called Fighter. The 30-second spot is narrated by Governor Ted Strickland (D-Ohio), who endorsed Clinton. The ad appeals to working class families in Ohio who have been hurt by job losses. Strickland vouches for Clinton and defends her, saying that she'll fight for the middle class

As for the radio ads, one is called, Faith* and, again, is narrated by Gov. Strickland. And in a similar vein as the television spot, the radio ad targets middle-class families and promises to bring jobs to Ohio. Strickland also mentions Clinton as a woman of deep faith. Recently, Clinton has said that her faith helped her to get through several difficult times in her life.

Here's the script:
Ted Strickland:
"We need a president who's tough, who's determined, but we also need a president who really deeply cares about the American people. "

"I've known Hillary for fifteen years, admired her since the day I met her. She's a person of deep faith, who is driven by deeply felt-values, everything she does is an effort to make life better for other people. She's also a person who I believe understands Ohio very deeply. Hillary Clinton is the candidate who can best provide the leadership that America and Ohio needs to revitalize our economy, to bring healthcare to our people, to make education high quality and affordable for all of our children and she is most capable of bringing this war to an honorable end...What Ohioans I think need more than anything else is to have confidence that their president's going to be working for them and Hillary Clinton is a person who will be that kind of president. She's fighting for us."

Announcer: Paid for by Hillary Clinton for President

HRC: "I'm Hillary Clinton, candidate for president, and I approved this message."

The other radio ad, called Jobs*, discusses jobs that have been shipped overseas and industrial plants that have been shut down.

Here's the script:

Man #1: "The economy in this state is terrible."

Woman #1: "We need jobs very badly in Ohio."

Man #2: "We need a leader who cares about the people."

Announcer: She's fighting for America's middle class.

Man #1: "Hillary Clinton can and will turn this country and economy around."

Man #2: "We've had steel mills here that have left. Casting plants that have left."

Man #3: "These corporations are taking these jobs overseas."

Woman #1: "Hillary has gone on record saying that NAFTA was a mistake."

Man #1: "Hillary does have a plan to fix NAFTA. She wants to change it from free trade to fair trade."

Man #3: "She wants to fix the problems."

Announcer: She'll end 55 billion dollars in giveaways to corporate special interests and invest it to rebuild the middle class, create jobs, expand student loans and cut taxes for working families.

Man #2: "She has the knowledge. She has the ability."

Man #3: "Hillary Clinton has the will it takes to get up every morning and fight for working families here in the United States of America."

Woman #1: "She's going to bring job back here to Ohio."

Announcer: Paid for by Hillary Clinton for President.

HRC: I'm Hillary Clinton, candidate for President, and I approved this message.


** The Clinton campaign announced these ads via press release. The links to the audio ads did not work. They will be posted once they are working.

HOW ABOUT HILLARY MAKE AN AD TELLING US THAT SHE IS A BOLD FACE LIAR!!!
AND THAT SHE IS CURRENTLY FACING A LWSUIT IN THE CALIFORNIA COURTS, CONCERNING CAMPAIGN FINANCE FRAUD, SHE COMMITTED DURING HER U.S SENATE CANPAIGN.
WATCH THE YOUTUBE VIDEO TITLED: "THE SHOCKING VIDEO HILLARY DOES NOT WANT YOUR TO SEE".
THE VIDEO CONCERNS HILLARY CAMPAIGN FINANCING FRAUD, WITH A MAN NAMED PETER PAUL. THIS CASE IS CURRENTLY IN COURT IN CALIFORNIA. SOMEHOW THE MAIN STREAM MEDIA HAS DECIDED NOT TO TELL THE WHOLE TRUTH ABOUT HILLARY CLINTON!! Hillary Clinton is facing a Campaign Finance Fraud case in court in California. Apparently she had a man named Peter Paul do a fund raising event for her U.S. Senator election campaign, raising $1.2 million dollars for her. After it was revealed that Peter Paul had a criminal background, Hillary lied about knowing him, or receiving $1.2 millions in campaign financing from him. She also filed documents with the FEC, and did not report the $1.2 million dollars she had received from the campaign fundraiser, WHICH IS A FELONY.
VIDEO evidence, and PHONE CALL evidence, and LETTERS evidence (as seen in the youtube video) is going to be presented in court in California in his lawsuit against Hillary Clinton, and she will most likely be charged with a felony.

The mainstream press has for some reason been ignoring this story fact, but it is for us to search out the truth.
It is imparitive that people know this information before they vote, because Hillary, with yet another fraud case pending, where there is physical proof of her participatig in the fraud, on video tape, will NOT become president, and will be prosecuted!

Democrats need to know the facts so they don't waste their votes on this dishonest woman who will not make it to the White House. This information is in the public domain, and the courts, and the Republicans will surely use it during the general election.

WE DO NOT WANT TO PUT ANOTHER PATHELOGICAL LIAR LIKE HILLARY, AND HER ACCOMPLICE, HER LYING HUSBAND, THE WORST LYING PRESIDENT TO DATE, BILL CLINTON, BACK IN THE WHITE HOUSE.

THE YOUTUBE VIDEO IS A MUST SEE: IT'S CALLED -"THE SHOCKING VIDEO HILLARY CLINTON DOES NOT WANT YOU TO SEE",
DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR VOTE ON THIS DISGRACEFUL WOMAN, VOTE FOR SOMEONE WITH INTEGRITY.

Hillary doesn't have any messages anymore. She's had so many this past month or two, that I've gotten motion-sickness.

Apparently, she's everything to everyone for as long as they can do something for her.

I was curious as to what you Obama supporters think about the threatening emails that superdelegates are getting to get them to switch their support from Clinton to Obama.

While (ILL) state Senator Obama was out with Rezko (the slumlord) buying his mansion for $1.6 million ($300k less than the asking price). His Constituents were freezing in their cold brownstone appartments which Rezko was suppose to renovate (Barrack recommended Rezko for the job). This is why I will never support him. HIS INTERESTS ALWAYS COME FIRST!!!

Vote for Hillary

Posted by: mwlvl | March 2, 2008 3:37 PM

Obama put his and his friends (Rezko) interests first while his (Barrack) constituents froze. These were the poor (black)people of south Chicago who Barrack was suppose to "protect". What do you think of that!!

Hillary 08
She will fight for you!!!

When his constituents went to him to protect them from the nuclear plant (Exelon) near their homes. Barrack let them down and got $200k from Exelon for his trouble.
