Are Louisiana US Senate Race TV Commercials By Vitter And Melancon In Honest Parallels?
Written by  {ga=staffwriters}

steve_sabludowsky01The Louisiana US Senate race 2010 or the "main match" is now running in parallel with both David Vitter and Charlie Melancon taking to the television airwaves.  

 

Democrat Melancon released a television commercial this week and in it, he is saying that his opponent, Republican Vitter has not been honest to the people of Louisiana. In the commercial, called "Honest", the Congressman quickly refers to Vitter and then talks about himself in an introductory manner.     

David Vitter, today released his television ad called "Parallel Univere".   In doing so, Vitter attempts to contrast the hardships of the average citizens to those who are benefiting from Melancon's votes  Vitter once again is trying to link Melancon to President Obama and "wasteful spending" and he takes a swipe at the congressman by suggesting Melancon is not sensitive to the Louisiana citizens but to his own personal perks.

Over the past couple of weeks, the political debate has been over the BP oil spill and the moratorium.  However, in the first "dueling" tv ads, Melancon is claiming Vitter cannot be trusted and the democrat is a  political moderate.   Vitter continues the theme that he has been presenting against Melancon throughout the election.

So, which which commercial do you is the best?  Which do you believe will be the most effective?

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
