Chris Myers has launched a doozy of an ad.
MYERS: Look, folks, George Bush is part of the problem, but so is Trenton politician John Adler.
Under Adler, property taxes are out of control, people are losing their jobs, and our economy stinks. Think about it…
Holy cow. There’s enough baloney in those two and a half sentences to feed a middle school for a week.
He’s right. George Bush is part of the problem. Yet for some reason, mayor Myers wants to continue George Bush’s disastrous economic policy and George Bush’s disastrous strategy in Iraq. The AC Press, endorsing Adler, ripped Myers thus on Iraq:
And on Iraq, while both Myers and Adler favor a careful withdrawal of U.S. troops, Myers is still insisting that the United States “must achieve victory on our terms,” that “we can’t send the message that the United States is weak,” and that he’d “rather fight terrorists overseas than in New Jersey.” Please. We have all heard these bromides before – from Bush.
And if Myers really thinks Bush is part of the problem, how come he hasn’t denounced Freedom’s Watch, run by Karl Rove and the rest of the Bush calvary, for running racist robocalls in New Jersey to help his campaign? Hmm.
Myers also blames Adler for all of New Jersey’s ills– property taxes, job losses and a poor economy. This is especially interesting given that Adler has supported a constitutional convention to fix property taxes in this state and wants to give a middle class tax cut to working families to get our economy going again. It’s interesting still that Myers somehow blames John Adler instead of George Bush for our recession-bound economy.
Then, again, this is the same Chris Myers who said the economy was “basically strong” only a few months ago. On the economy, he’s more erratic than John McCain on six cups of coffee.
How out of touch can you get?
