Too Much,Too Little, Too Late – McGrady Internal Polls Force Desperate Last Minute UnFocused Political Ad Blitz of Lies, Deception And Fear Mongering

October 31, 2010

     Patrick McGrady, the  typical Right Wing, Libertarian ,Tea Party Republican. For six months he parrots Bob Ehrlichs simplistic  slogan ‘More Jobs,Less Taxes’. Then in the last week before the Election his internal polls don’t look good. So he desperately sends out eight or more different political mailers  in the last three days – an unfocused political blitz of lies, deception and fear mongering.

     One of the three mailers on Saturday attacks Democrats Mary-Dulany James,   Marla Posey-Moss and even  McGrady’s co-conspirator Republican Glenn Glass. The attack is basicly the lie that  Democrats equal higher taxes. No facts, just malarky. The second Saturday mailer just attacks the Democrats,  James and Posey-Moss. This one repeats the the ‘higher taxes’ fear-mongering lies, but this time its written in one inch letters on the back of the mailer. Not only does McGrady think Dist 34 voters are stupid, he thinks their blind.

     The third mailer McGrady attacks just Marla Posey-Moss.  The attack now changes. Posey-Moss is a “progressive”. Its written  in one inch letters again on the front and back.  McGrady is an extreme right-wing libertarian Tea-Party Republican and he thinks that Dist 34 voters are against “progress” and are very blind.

     So who is  McGrady  running against? Everyone? Any Democrat? Or just one “progressive” Democrat? And what is he running against? Taxes or Progress? If  McGrady wanted to run a successful lying Republican campaign he  should have patterned  himself after the disgraced Chuck Boutin campaign eight years ago.

  l.  Boutin didn’t run his campaign against everybody. He picked one target (Dan Riley) and made up lies just about him

 2. And Boutin didnt just lie with mailers. He lied with newspaper ads. He lied with radio ads. And he lied with tv ads.

 3. And finally, Boutin didn’t just lie for the last three or four days. He lied early and late. He lied for weeks on end. He lied during the whole campaign. He lied so much for so long  and in so many media outlets that he fooled enough voters to win.

     McGrady’s campaign  failed to focus, focus, focus. Too many targets, too little media, too little time. Too Much, Too little, Too late.

      Rovall Washington in a letter to the editor to The Aegis (Oct. 29, 2010) and on a post on his new website Harford360, endorsed his  former primary opponent,Art Helton, for the Maryland Senate. Mr Washington stated:

        “I’m giving my suppoprt to him (Helton) for the General Election on Nov. 2 . This is a serious decision.

         We must chose a person that personally has the qualifications to negotiate and bring us the jobs, funding, and development to Harford and Cecil Counties to get the thousands of voters back to work.”

 

Aegis/Letters To the Editor – Former State Senator Cathy Riley And Former State Delegate RoseMary Bonsack Rally Support For Arthur Helton for State Senator in Dist 34

October 29, 2010

Wednesday October 27, 2010,TheAegis, Political Open Forum

            Catherine I Riley (C.Riley For Helton): ” For many years now Art (Helton) , and indeed his wife, Ann,too, have donated enormous amounts of time to the community and worked to improve lives. They have devoted themselves to ensuring our voices are heard by policymakers and worked on many diverse issues from budgets to protecting the environment, cleaning up the bay  and trying to ensure that developoment and our regulatory environment are properly balanced.

                                                 I am convinced that this district needs a new Senator in Annapolis. I strongly urge you to vote for Art Helton. He will work hard for you and make sure your views and your concerns are haerd as he fights for a government that seeks to represent the best that we are…” 

     RoseMary Hatem Bonsack( Bonsack for Helton)  : ” We  need a serious Senator to work hard for the people of Maryland—and one who will bring back to his constituents those precious monies so badly needed in Harford and Cecil counties.

                                                                           Art Helton has always been  a hard worker and previously represented District 34 very successsfully. He is an excellent businessman– with vision, knowlege , extreme energy and caring for our communities…

                                                                          Because of these attributes and his good common sense, he will  finally bring back to the district what is totally necessary and beneficial for each community. He can get it done right! I  have known Art for many years and having served in the legislature myself, I know he is the person we need to serve District 34 now!” 

    

 

    

 

 

 

    

 

 

Nancy ‘No Show’ Jacobs Joins The Tea Party – Endorses Radical Right-Wing Tea Party Organizer Patrick McGrady for House of Delegates

October 28, 2010

      Sen. Nancy Jacobs (R-Dist34) has moved further to the political right, if that is possible. Already known for being “way too right” and “shrill and ineffective” (gazette.net) and  “among the most conservative legislators in a fairly moderate district” and an “obstructionist” (The Aegis),she now discloses in  her mailers and with her street signs that she is linking her political fate with Right-Wing Libertarian Tea Party organizer, Patrick McGrady in his bid for the House of Delegates in District 34A.  The  Tea Party was recently described by the Tea Party Nationalism Report as a political organization that “provides a platform for known racists and anti-semites”. Opinion  polls reveal that “racial animosity” permeates the membership of the Tea Party. And the NAACP sees the Tea Party as a “threat to democracy” because it harbors racist and nativist  individuals and groups that threaten human rights and civil rights .TeaPartyNationalism     GazetteNetTheList

Art Helton ‘Knock-Out” Mailer – 80% Of Success In Life Is Just Showing Up

October 27, 2010

         Will someone please explain that to state Senator Nancy Jacobs?

       Why she’s ‘No-Show Nancy’. In the 2007 Special Session, the”most important” in fifty years, too often it was ” No SHOW NANCY”… 

       On SB 2: Did Not Vote     On HB 1: Did Not Vote   On SB3: Did Not Vote      On HB 4: Did not vote

      For the entire special session , the Senator missed 22.3% of all Senate floor votes. What’s more in Governor Ehrlich’s 2004 special session, Jacobs missed twelve of fifteen floor votes…

     And thats why having Nancy Jacobs represent us is just like having an empty chair. There’s a better choice for all of us…
     ART HELTON GETS THINGS DONE.

Art Helton’s Telephone Political Ad :

     Hi, I’m Arthur Helton. I’m asking for your vote for State Senate. I have a record of getting things done unlike your current State Senator Nancy Jacobs. Her poor attendance record in Annapolis has earned her the nickname “No-Show Nancy”. She constantly votes against funding  programs she supported. I can do better , and I will.  But I need your vote.
