Halter Slashes Ad Buys

We don't know what is going on yet, but it appears Bill Halter has slashed his ad buys. We are open to theories about what this means.

"UPDATE From East Coast Word Slinger Bud Jackson with the Halter Campaign: It means that we have already purchased plenty of television time to get our message out. If anyone doesn't believe us, all they need to do is turn on their television. If we feel like more television advertising is necessary, then maybe we'll buy more time -- or maybe not. I don't think we're going to show our cards while the hand is still being played.

Surely, there are better things to report on -- such as Jim Holt's predisposition to lie or his lack of any plans to make our schools excellent or to build and attract higher paying jobs to Arkansas."

I'm pretty sick of this beltway boy coming to town and calling Jim Holt a liar. Not even Holt's enemies in this state think he is a liar, they just think he is wrong. I tell you what, I hereby challenge Bud Jackson to a debate on any radio show or broadcast medium willing to air it. Topic to be "which statement is more correct, "Jim Holt is a liar" or "Bill Halter defended his company's participation in the porn business".

What about it beltway boy?
As for the higher paying jobs and schools, Holt handed Halter his head at the debate on AETN last week over those very subjects. Go to yourself and watch it if you don't believe me.

The following was seen on the Arkansas Family Coalition Blog from a poster. Proud Conservative has yet to respond. Maybe you can do something with it.


Why don't you guys have a thread on McDaniel coming out in support of civil unions for homosexual couples? Why not a thread on the line where he went squishy on banning gay foster parent placement and said that homosexuals are not pedofiles? This was on the AP wire last night.

While your at it, why not a thread on Marion Berry's girlfriend Janice Griffen who works for DHHS and has a lobbying gig on the side that he set up for her?

Or a thread on the convicted child molester, Bobby Hagood, from Mississippi County who had Beebe's office negotiate a lesser sex offender classification for him so now he can live next to schools and daycares and most of the folks living near him will never know it because his new status gives a lot more protection to his identity?

How about a thread on the fact the given a choice, the Democrats of Arkansas nominated the most leftist, secularist ticket in this state's history with Beebe, McDaniel, and Halter. And that these three guys are multi-millionaire country-clubbers that are out of touch with the views and values of everyday Arkansans.

Where is the thread with all of the quotes from Beebe and McDaniel about being pro-choice?

We are three weeks out. Do you guys really want to be talking about hairdo's? Shouldn't we be talking about issues that impact our lives and the policy of this state?

When this site started I was hopeful that we had some new strategists that could identify important issues and use them to motivate voters into action. Come on guys, its crunch time. If you don't prove your salt in the next few days, this whole effort will be in vain. The people of Arkansas need you to step up now, more than ever.

My response is that this person needs to write the stories up and send them in. I can't cover every base. I am overwhelemed with stuff to do right now.

If they are good enough, I'll make him a contributor.

I had the displeasure of seeing at least one Halter ad. Here's what I remember. Halter goes up to this 70 year old football coach like a high school football player saying something about him running for Lt. Governor. Then the commercial shows school kids and somebody saying that Halter is going to do good stuff for Arkansas. Then the 70 year old coach tells Halter to do push-ups. Halter asks if he will have to do this when he's Lt. Governor.

One of the dumbest ads I have ever seen. If I find it, I'll send it to you.

Jackson, you are paid six figures. Earn them. Debate me. Pick a day, next week. If you can't find a radio station to do it I will.

I'll even throw in the topic of the minimum wage, which you seem to think is your strongest issue, since you know you can't defend my orginal debate point "which statement is more correct, "Jim Holt is a liar" or "Bill Halter defended his company's participation in the porn business".

Where is Bud Jackson? I don't think he can debate these issues, right now. He is back in Virginia retrieving his notes.
