Gov. Gasbag kicked off his re-election campaign and is trying to message it as “Promises Kept.” Yes, to the corporations and energy companies who bankroll his campaigns perhaps but not to the people. He has kicked hundreds of thousands off health care, cut education by a billion bucks, channeled another $1.5 billion from public schools to charters, cut business taxes while cutting your services and illustrated a complete inability to work with the legislature. Add to all that his affinity for putting his foot in his mouth every time it opens.
Remember “they just have to close their eyes?” My advice for the Corbett campaign is this: just close your eyes when the election returns begin rolling in next November.
A hundred protesters greeted the Guv in Philadelphia yesterday. Eight Democrats have already greeted him in the race. Corbett is dead Governor walking, an incumbent with zero chance of re-election. Polish up that resume Tom and begin greasing up for the screwing the voters are about to give you.
Meanwhile Mayor Ed Pawlowski of Allentown showed a marked weakness Tuesday. With just nominal independent opposition he failed to garner as many votes as he did in 2009. His vaunted campaign team told the Express Times they had 220 volunteers knock on 120,000 doors Tuesday and 78,000 over the weekend. Did anyone bother to do the math before publishing these ludicrous claims? That means each canvasser hit 545 doors or 45/hour for twelve hours without a break. Give me a break.
