Tancredo's 2nd TV Ad

I thought Tancredo's first ad was pretty scary, but his second one takes up another notch. I post this because someone needs to say it.

I can only imagine Tancredo's next ad featuring Tancredo holding a machete and talking about moving the White House to the Mexican border, so he can personally go on night patrol.

I’ve got to say that Bush and the Democratic Presidential candidates are pulling the wool over our eyes on the housing crises.

On freezing interest rates for subprime loans, Bush’s plan today is a total crock. The NY Times reports his plan would “exclude many — if not most — subprime borrowers” including those who are delinquent on their payments. In a nutshell it’s a sham.

But what’s worse: a President no one trusts making promises no one believes or the Democratic candidates presumably trying to replace him covertly aiding and abetting his policies?

Jesse Jackson spelled out the problem recently, noting nearly every single Democratic candidate lacks an agenda to promote African American issues while condescendingly expecting votes from that community. Presidential candidate Senator Chris Dodd is a key example. While loudly denouncing Bush for allowing the housing crises to precipitate, as Chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, he has been helping Bush’s HUD Secretary Alphonso Jackson to close the last remaining resource for helping homebuyers avoid predatory loans. Senator Dodd is siding with Republicans in the Senate to oppose Maxine Water’s and Barney Frank’s bill in the House to save downpayment assistance programs, which allow nonprofits to help working families with the 3% downpayment necessary for Federally insured home loans.

The posturing on this is reaching new heights….but where is the press in uncovering the double talk? Absent as usual.

I fail to see what the first comment has to do with the topic at hand.

Someone is hell-bent on putting negative information about Dodd on all the Iowa blogs, it seems.


PS--I sometimes wonder if Tancredo's whole agenda is to make the eventual Republican nominee look like a moderate. He seems to go out of his way to be an outrageous bigot.

Impressive research on the delegate counts, little sister. Our allocation is a little different, urban areas are more heavily weighted (which is good when you're the Polk Co. Chair and appoint more delegates than the rest of our district combined. P.S. Brenda Jo sends her very Christian conservative greetings to desmoinesdem

On the topic de jure, everything in the Tanc's ads are factually accurate. Its not biggoted if its true. The Central and South American drug gangs are really just narco terrorists and they are committing horrific crimes throughout the southwest. Its a terrible problem and one of the many destructive products of our completely broken immigration system.

The ads are maybe a little graphic, but what the hell, we live in the age of shock TV do we not?

Not carrying his brief but Huckabee's plan looks pretty reasonable.
