In his last campaign ad, Pennsylvania's Democratic Congressman and US Senate candidate Joe Sestak tried to trick voters into believing he went right from his years of military service to his current campaign. He conveniently omitted his years in the US House of Representatives where he strongly supported Wall Street bailouts and the Obama agenda. In his latest ad he's at it again.
Representative Sestak's new ad highlights his service in the US Navy as his "lifetime of serving our country" but leaves out his 2 terms as a congressman during which he voted with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-California) 97% of the time. He also forgot to mention his ongoing support for Obama agenda items such as the $800 billion non-stimulating stimulus bill, Obamacare, Cap & Trade and Card Check.
In the ad, Congressman Sestak is equally selective when describing his opponent's resume. The 30-second spot claims Republican Pat Toomey has spent a "lifetime serving Wall Street." Too bad for Mr. Sestak, the latest Toomey ad tells the truth about both candidates' Wall Street related records:
Based on his hard earned knowledge and proven by his record, Mr. Toomey is against Wall Street bailouts and in favor of fiscal responsibility in government while Representative Sestak voted for Wall Street bailouts and then took money from the Wall Street banks he bailed out. With the latest polls showing Mr. Toomey leading the race by 9 points (45% - 36%), it seems the people of Pennsylvania aren't as easily fooled as Mr. Sestak hoped.
