Had my jaw dropping.
10th PA Congressional Republican nominee Chis Hackett has been playing catch up to Frosh Democrat Chris Carney and seems to have thrown in the towel on the Presidential race.
The message I get from this spot is the 'Democrats are going to win so vote for me.' It doesn't make any sense. If there is going to be a Democrat in the White House and the Congress is going to be controlled by the other party and you keep telling people that you won't ask for any pork, what is the reason we should vote for you? We don't want backbench members of the minority party pleading our case in Washington be it Hackett or Barletta. They won't get anything done.
An added bonus of this ad is that Hackett has that Conservative Icon Senator Arlen Specter making the case. Maybe they should have just shown footage of a slow motion train wreck.
