Deeds Ad Hits McDonnell on Bush

Rosalind Helderman

The governor's race ads are getting tougher. First, the Republican Governor's Association hit Creigh Deeds on spending. Now, Deeds has put out a variant of the happy, shiny ad he first aired last week. It addresses similar themes as his first spot--Deeds will govern like Warner, offer tax credits to businesses that create jobs, audit state agencies.

But this time around, instead of merely mentioning that he won't govern like George Bush, Deeds makes the link between Republican Bob McDonnell and Bush explicit.

The Deeds camp says the ad will be airing in all Virginia media markets except pricey NoVa.

Seriously? The best Deeds can do is bring up Bush? Very sad.

seriously- you are paying your consultants a lot of money. they have used the Bush gameplan now for multiple cycles. it worked when Bush was in office, it worked right when he was leaving office. Bush isn't President anymore. Spending was out of control under Bush, it's out of control under Obama. You need a new gameplan. Your consultants think people aren't very smart.

Go, Creigh. The news is out on Bobby McDonnell, as right wing as it gets. His thesis at Pat Robertson's Regent University gives the lie to his claims of moderacy. There's no going back to that right-wing mob the voters just sent packing last November.
