Fed Up, Mad As Hell And On The Air
Hell hath no fury like a rich politician scorned.
GOP gubernatorial hopeful Carl Paladino has unleashed a statewide TV and radio campaign on New York this morning with spots that declare him to be the target of “unfair” attacks by the “liberal elites…like many in the Tea Party.”
A timely message, particularly given what happened in Utah this past Saturday.
Observers would have long ago discounted Paladino due to his lack of institutional support and e-mail scandal, which would have discounted any normal aspiring statewide candidate.
But a man who has pledged to spend up to $10 million of his own cash to get onto the ballot – petitioning on, if necessary – cannot be discounted.
What’s more, Paladino now commands up to 7 percent of the weighted convention vote, thanks to the loyalty of the Erie County GOP, which puts him and local party leaders in the potential position of being kingmakers when Republicans gather in Manhattan on June 1.
You can listen to the 60-second radio spot here. I heard it this morning on Buffalo’s WBEN during a break in the Gov. David Paterson interview. Transcripts for both the radio and TV ads appear in full after the jump.
CARL: I’m Carl Paladino. I’m a business man, not a politician. Like you, I’m fed up with Albany’s corrupt career politicians ruining New York that’s why I’m running for Governor. Now, like many in the Tea Party, the Liberal elites are attacking me unfairly. They’re trying to distract you. If you want a Governor to really clean up Albany, cut taxes ten percent, slash spending twenty percent, and really create jobs I’m your man!
ANN: Are you mad as hell about the mess in Albany? New Yorkers pay the highest taxes, we get the wildest liberal spending, but were still losing jobs. One man has stepped forward to drive career politicians and their special interest buddies out of Albany. That’s outsider Carl Paladino for Governor of New York. He’s not a politician he’s a successful Buffalo CEO. Like many in The Tea Party Movement, Carl’s under attack by the Liberal elite because he’ll turn Albany upside down and take out the trash.
CARL: “Career politicians always promise us tax cuts, spending cuts and new jobs. They never deliver. I’m Carl Paladino as your Governor I’ll REALLY cut taxes by ten percent, I’ll REALLY cut spending by twenty percent – and if you want someone with a proven track record creating jobs, I’m your man.”
ANN: Join Carl Paladino in this fight to take back our state. Because we’re mad as hell – and were not going to take this anymore. Visit PaladinoforthePeople.com.
CARL: Paid for by Paladino for the People.
