It is that time of year when the deluge of political ads becomes too much to bear. Part of the problem is that so many of these ads make wild claims and accusations that just don’t hold water or they take one statement, perhaps made years or decades ago, and twist it to the point where voters just tune them out. So, it is refreshing to see a political ad that relies on facts and even the statements of the opposing candidate in making the point. Those statements reveal an honest and real difference between the candidates on policy.
Allen Weh’s ad on Sen. Tom Udall’s support for ObamaCare is one fact-based ad that seems like it should be a template for conservatives running against liberal incumbents around the country. The ad is below:
This is all good. And, within the span of a 30 second political ad, it is about all that can be achieved. The bad news is that Weh hasn’t exactly fleshed out a lot of specifics in terms of what he’d like to see done to reform health care. On his website, his position is stated simply “Fixing the healthcare train wreck we’ve got now.” To his credit, Weh has stated elsewhere that he would repeal ObamaCare.

To the best of my knowledge, Tom Udall Cooper is refusing to debate Allen Weh. I believe this is the first time in recent memory that there has not been a single senatorial debate in an election cycle in N.M. Also, the last time that Senator Udall Cooper was on Bob Clark’s radio show on KKOB was six years ago.
Udall is the most important one to defeat this cycle. His pet rat function for Reid, to rewrite the Constitution, displayed the hubris of the Senate dems. Udall took the assignment because he and Reid figure Udall is untouchable in this state. What a sad commentary on the people of NM.
And Bill McCamley’s statement that one party rule results in the benefit of continuity sure has helped this state, run by the dems for decades. Look where that has gotten us in education quality and private sector jobs.
And the “Are you better off” drivel by Denish was barrel-bottom thinking if ever it existed.
