Mark Neumann's latest ad talks about today's kids having to work for all that debt that President Obama has racked up (with the help of nobody in office between 1789 & 2009 remember...)
Then, yesterday in the debate on WTAQ, he talked about his 3 year old grandson saying something about "government needs to stop spending my money" in an attempt to create an "awwww" moment.
Oh... I get it, it's part of his new angle! Here's his radio ad where he clearly shows that the "heartwarming" moment from yesterday's debate was already scripted for the airwaves:
Look ding-aling... your 3 year old grandson knows he likes cookies and sugar. He also probably also thinks $1 is a lot of money. So stop pretending your grandson had an original thought about the fiscal health of the federal government already. All that happened is your grandson was brainwashed by listening to his dad and grandpa about "all that government debt,"and then regurgitated it back to you. If nothing else, you are pointing out how Tea-Party/Neo-Stalwart education works. Say something over and over again, no matter how truthful it is, then have the general public start spewing it back and spreading it to others. Now, reinforce by saying, "see, they think the same thing!"
If your 3 year old grandson can solve perceived problems like our Government debt load, or debt/GDP ratio, he damn well better be solving cancer by the time he's 6.
New Rule: Democrats and Republicans - Don't use kids under the age of 12 to make a political point. All but 0.0001 of people that age have any clue how government, society, social, monetary, and fiscal policy work.
