There They Go Again! (Vol. 3)

on Jul 10, 2015

Inspired by Ronald Reagan’s famous retort to Jimmy Carter during the 1980 Presidential race, an email series keeping tabs on erroneous, preposterous, and/or deceptive statements uttered by out-of-touch Mississippi Democrats in an election year.

__________________________________________________________________

Factcheck.org may get a lot of traffic from Mississippi voters this election year, as Democrats continue to play loose with the facts about the Republican record. Before too long, the Democrats will be telling people if they contribute a certain amount, a Nigerian prince will match the contribution if you divulge your bank account information for a wire transfer.

At any rate, that the Democrat election year strategy is to obfuscate the facts should come as no surprise, considering the Republican record of success over the last four years and the Party of Obama being so out of touch with everyday Mississippians.

The latest Democrat to play loose with the facts is Vicki Slater, Democrat candidate for Governor. In a recent fundraising letter, Ms. Slater claimed that Gov. Phil Bryant has “turn[ed] his back” on oyster fisherman on the coast in favor of using BP settlement money to help build Biloxi’s new minor league baseball stadium.

What Ms. Slater conveniently failed to mention in her letter, however, is that earlier this year, Gov. Bryant established by executive order the Oyster Restoration and Resiliency Council, a group of citizens, scientists and seafood industry leaders, representing a variety of interests and disciplines. The Governor’s Oyster Council and its subcommittees have been meeting since February, and just last month released one of the most comprehensive reports on oyster fisherman ever, giving the state a plan of action to protect this vital industry for decades to come.

So yes, Ms. Slater, Governor Bryant did help negotiate a settlement with BP to the tune of nearly $2.2 billion for Mississippi. And yes, BP settlement funds were used to help construct a major regional asset in the form of the baseball stadium, which the Gulf Coast Business Council’s research foundation estimates will spur an additional $10 million annually in visitor spending on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. But, no, Governor Bryant has not “turned his back” on oyster fishermen. And you should quit turning your back on the facts.

Happy Independence Day

on Jul 4, 2015

Happy Independence Day

Dear fellow Republicans:

As we do every year, Mississippians across the state will gather today in every way from picnics to parades and celebrate the 4th of July. On this day, we raise the flag not only to celebrate the freedoms we enjoy, but to remind us of what we must dedicate ourselves to preserving for the sake of our children and grandchildren.

Finally, we must always remember and thank the patriots – from the signers of the Declaration of Independence to the generations of brave service members who have since answered the call – who made and continue to make our freedom possible.

Sincerely,

Joe Nosef, Chairman
Mississippi Republican Party

There They Go Again! (Vol.2)

on Jul 1, 2015


Inspired by Ronald Reagan’s famous retort to Jimmy Carter during the 1980 Presidential race, an email series keeping tabs on erroneous, preposterous, and/or deceptive statements uttered by out-of-touch Mississippi Democrats in an election year.

__________________________________________________________________

In the last edition of this email series, we drew attention to prominent newspaper columnists calling out House Democrat Leader Bobby Moak for his misleading and partisan rhetoric about the Republican record on public education. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Bobby Moak is once again the focus, and this time not for anything he said, but for his complete failure to say anything.

Last week was one of the biggest political news weeks in recent history, with the reignited debate over our state flag and U.S. Supreme Court decisions upholding Obamacare and requiring states to recognize gay marriage. Mississippi’s Republican leaders were engaged on the issues, responding to queries from constituents and the media, issuing statements, and announcing potential next steps in light of the decisions.

Bobby Moak, on the other hand, rather than engaging the issues, spent the week sending out swanky invitations to a “late afternoon reception,” July 7th, on Highway 30A in Seagrove Beach, FL, and issuing a written plea for money in the bizarre form of a review of the upcoming film The Free State of Jones starring Matthew McConaughey.

On the issues of the flag and gay marriage, as the Clarion Ledger put it, “. . . crickets.” Silence from the state Democrat Leader. And on the issue of Obamacare, merely a statement to reporters in favor of Medicaid expansion.

Perhaps the reason Bobby Moak is not talking about the issues is because he doesn’t want to remind people back home how far and irreversibly left his Party has veered under President Obama, forcing upon Mississipians the job-killing, rate-hiking, government takeover of health care that is Obamacare and liberal social policies.

At any rate, it’s time for Republicans across the state to unite and vote out Democrats like Bobby Moak, and send a clear and resounding message that in today’s Mississippi, you can be a conservative or a Democrat, but you can’t be both.
