 Reverse Roy: ‘Civil’ campaigning

On Aug. 11, the day Nathan Deal became the nominee, Roy Barnes vowed he’d show his differences with his opponent in a “civil,” “polite,” “respectful” and “not personal” way:

"I think that you can show differences without being mean," Barnes said. "You know, it’s a Southern tradition to be civil and polite. There are differences, but they’re honorable people. And so just because we have differences doesn’t mean that we have to call each other names. But we do have a responsibility to show the differences, and I think they do, too. As long as it’s done in a respectful way and one that’s not personal, I think that we can do that."

Despite his pledge to remain “civil and polite,” Roy Barnes has continued a relentless negative campaign against Nathan Deal. Tomorrow will mark seven weeks of totally negative advertising from Barnes’ campaign. Read more. . .

Nathan Deal's steady career
leads to GOP bid


Associated Press 09/25/10 7:30 PM EDT

ATLANTA  — Nathan Deal has been building the resume to run for governor his whole life.
Top grades. Student body president. Debate champion. Law school. Military record. A nearly three-decade-long career in the state Legislature and Congress.

"We all figured in, oh, the 5th or 6th grade that Nathan was going to be governor," said his childhood friend Tommy Walker, of Sandersville. "He was just that way, the class leader with the good grades. It's like it was in his DNA."  Read entire article in the Examiner

Reversin’ Roy Runs from Record

He tries to Deny Pro-Illegal Immigration Positions

ATLANTA, GA – Roy Barnes’ oscillating opinions on laws regarding illegal immigrants ran into a problem yesterday: his record. Confronted with a 2001 article that documented his support of extending driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants, Barnes’ staff denied the claims, even though the article contained quotes directly from – you guessed it – Roy Barnes.

After a week of personal attacks on Nathan Deal for giving his children money to start a business, the Democrats and biased Georgia media have left us with no choice. We know they fight dirty. We know they won't talk about issues and policies because their ideas are flatly rejected by Georgia voters. We know that newspapers who endorse a candidate so early in a general election cannot be trusted to report both sides of a story. We know that more twisted headlines and purposely shot mid-word photographs will be used to try to make our candidate look unattractive will be used in every newspaper and on every broadcast.  Read more

The Macon Telegraph ran a column on Sunday encouraging the Georgia Republican Party to take action to change the ballot in light of misleading information spread in the press. After agreeing to give the GAGOP space to refute their claims, the Telegraph rejected the response.

While it is the paper’s prerogative to refuse op-eds, the Georgia Republican Party believes the column printed by the Macon Telegraph was misleading and warrants response.

Nathan Deal is best candidate for Governor; Barnes and the AJC notwithstanding


By Wendell Dawson, Editor, AVOC, Inc


I am one of many Georgians who cannot stand Roy Barnes.   He is a pompous windbag who cannot be elected unless he follows Democrat tactics of trying to destroy his opponent.   The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has given much ‘aid and comfort’ to Barnes with its “exclusive reporting
It is a downright shame the AJC and other liberal leaning media do not devote some of their efforts to exposing Roy Barnes for his corruptness.   How many times did Roy appoint judges who donated to him?   How many trials has Barnes won before Judges he appointed?   Who are Barnes’ major clients?   What has been his annual income?   How did he amass Millions of Dollars in wealth since being defeated in 2002 ? Read entire article and be sure to read the Roy Barnes Record in Tifton Gazette.

Deal's Comments in Conference Call and in Newspaper
September 17, 2010

As a participant in the Deal Conference Call today, I am very proud that Nathan Deal is addressing his financial problems in a direct manner.  Many of us knew about the financial problems with his daughter and son-in-law's business quite some time ago, so this was nothing new. I commend Nathan and Sandra for helping out their child in a world where so many parents could care less. Their action is a testament to the character of two caring  Georgians who personify family values.  Many of us can relate to financial problems especially in the past few years. God bless them for standing strong and vowing to pay off their bills instead of declaring bankruptcy. Parts of Nathan Deal's message on the conference call were broadcast Friday afternoon on W-DUN radio. If you are so inclined, send us your comments on this topic to be posted here.

The Deal Conference Call
September 17, 2010 12:16 pm
Buzz Brockway on the Peach Pundit

Whether by default or by design, the secret conference call I (as an incoming State Rep.) was invited to participate in was not much of a secret. Jim Galloway listened in as did Martin Matheny, the former mouthpiece for the Ga. Democrats (and they we’re worried about me leaking stuff!). That the contents of Deal’s call is out there is actually a good thing and once again I’ll urge elected officials to be as transparent as possible with their interactions with the public and supporters. If the information is going to get out anyway so why not just be open and transparent?
