Beebe's Campaign Ad Grasping at Straws

Mike Beebe has made the first move in the T.V. ad campaign. His first ad of the season comes earlier than traditional ads in a general election, but not for the reason being advertised. The article states that because Mike has not run a statewide campaign he needed to get the jump in order to define himself to the voters. It also states that he is in "good" position to do so considering the status of his campaign war chest.

Hogwash!

Mike Beebe is running these ads at this time for one reason only - to counter his faltering polls. The latest Rasmussen poll has Hutchinson to within 7 points - from an earlier 11 point deficit. Other polls have the difference within the margin of error. Beebe's bumbling, gaffes, and out-right falsehoods have left his campaign stammering for a change of direction.

If John Brummett is having misgivings about your Democratic candidacy, then you know you are in trouble. This ad campaign is a grasp at trying to right the ship.
And right it he should. Beebe's inconsistencies on abortion, the grocery tax, gay foster parents, intelligent design, and his general lack of taking a solid stand on any issue would force any candidate with similar woes into the same defensive stance.

Meanwhile, Asa has stood firm on every position he has taken. Like him or not, with Asa Hutchinson, you never have to guess where he is on an issue. In the business world, you can make sound business decisions if you know the government positions are not going to be shifting like the desert sands. And that spells a stable economy for all of Arkansas. With Beebe, Arkansas will be headed down in the quicksand of incompetency.

Comments:
I saw Beebe's ad while I was in Springdale this weekend on the train ride that Jim had up there. It was filled with nothing but lies about his true record! I hope Asa hammers him about his record in Asa's campaign commercials.
 
I believe Asa will hammer Beebe on all of his lies and ads. I also believe that the media has had enough of Beebe's "falsehoods" and distortions.
