Failure to Stop

“Make no mistake: a vote for Rice is a vote for Obama”

Bruce Blakeman, the Republican-Conservative-Independence nominee for Congress in New York’s open Fourth Congressional District, brought his campaign’s growing momentum to the airwaves again, releasing his fourth general election television commercial.

Stressing that neighbors “make no mistake: a vote for Rice is a vote for Obama,” Blakeman powerfully conveys a key point using the Democrat’s top official’s own words: President Obama declaring that even though he’s not on the ballot his policies are on, “every single one of them.”

The 30 second buy was produced by Beach House Advertising will run in the campaign’s regular rotation on cable stations.

“Kathleen Rice is running as fast as she can away from President Obama.  But neighbors are smart enough to know that a vote for Kathleen Rice is a vote for the Obama agenda,” said Blakeman campaign spokesman Matt Coleman.

The Wall Street Journal published a piece earlier this week that summed up Kathleen Rice’s campaign strategy perfectly: “However much distance these Democrats are seeking from the president, they will generally be on-board with his agenda.” (Source: The Wall Street Journal.  10/21/2014)

The Blakeman Campaign also pointed to Rice’s convenient excuse to initially skip the president’s planned appearance in her hometown of Garden City, less than a mile from both her home and office, that was later cancelled, using her oft-repeated claim that she was “busy.”  (Source:  New York Post.  10/15/2014)

No wonder voter momentum is squarely behind Blakeman.

Obama: Gave what was billed as a big economic speech “intended to show voters who give the president dismally low marks on the economy that [he]was on the case” but “fell flat.”  The only headline from the address was President Obama’s remark that: ‘I am not on the ballot this fall. … But make no mistake: these policies are on the ballot. Every single one of them.’” (Source: CNBC, 10/3/2014)
