Paladino’s Ad Buy #NYGov

7 Oct

At 5:13 today, Carl Paladino will air a 3-minute ad. I’m going to live blog it here.

Carl is talking about the Post’s photographer harassing his extra daughter. He’s upset about being asked about affairs. “Andrew’s prowess is legendary”, but let’s talk about “issues” like taxes and spending that’s “wildly out of control” .

Albany is full of crooks, etc. Cut taxes by 10%, cut spending, get gas from the Marcellus. Let’s take out the trash and return “jobs and prosperity” to New York.

“Come out and debate all the candidates” – again demands that Cuomo debate not just Paladino, but all of the minor party candidates.

Now Nancy Naples – a failed politician of failure to beg for money and whine about how badly poor Carl has been treated.

What a load of horseshit.

UPDATE: Cuomo camp responds:

“Carl Paladino and his handlers can’t con New Yorkers. They have seen the real Carl and they know he is unfit to be Governor with his unstable outbursts, smears, and total lack of substance. New Yorkers don’t need his dysfunctional personality in Albany – Albany is dysfunctional enough As we all know by now, Carl has a casual relationship with the truth. We have accepted a debate hosted by Newsday featuring all candidates, as requested by Carl, and it is Carl who has thus far declined. Just when you thought he couldn’t get any lower, Carl once again debased himself and the entire political process.”

    Cuomo has already agreed to a debate and Paladino is the one holding out.

    Almost race and gender baiting him on not debating with the minor and fringe candidates. And again with the “be a man” thing from the Godfather…

    Nice to see the Cuomo camp doing the right thing and agreeing to a debate that includes all the candidates.

    Nancy Naples begging for money was pathetic.

    Nice bait and switch Carl and Caputs. Was it not in peoples minds that CP had promised to prove his allegations about AC philandering. ? Instead Carl was the REO Speedwagon to Naples’ Styx and her closing act was nothing more than a shakedown. They’ll be lucky to recoup what they wasted on that Ad to Nowhere.

    The whole thing was pathetic. Let’s be honest.

    NYT, NYPost, Albany Times-Union completely ignored it. NY Daily news hung it’s hat on prowess as did CNN and Reuters. I watched the speech and saw him try to pivot. He had a plan (a bad plan) but a plan all the same. Cut taxes by 10%, cut spending 20%, increase revenue and jobs by exploiting the Marcellus shale and creating 53,000 jobs. A bad plan, but a plan with numbers that add up. But he just couldn’t help himself. He would only be allowed one message out of this. Paladino talks jobs, Paladino cuts taxes. Instead he opts for: Paladino knocks Cuomo for his legendary prowess. Dumb. If he’s a competent manager his campaign staff will be gone by morning. Why opt for more of the same, when you’re numbers are dropping like a rock. If he loves NYS so much he should learn to keep his mouth shut an focus. At this point though its too late and it’s only going to get worse.

    I like the Cuomo response. It was written with style and wit. Not overdone, but nicely done!

    carl’s projection about the job creation regarding the marcellus shale is wildly overstated, by about 40,000 jobs. honestly, after listening to and/or reading his thoughts on the whole scene he sounds unbelievably clueless about the whole situation. not like anyone would expect any better or different from a rightwing candidate.

    Great ideas! Mine Marcellus Shale and half of New York will be without water which isn’t toxic or flamable. Cut spending 20%: Ok,what will we not have? Cut taxes 10%: Great! 10% of unemployed = zero.

    Carl wants to “frack” New York, if you know what I mean…
