RGA Ad: Barnes on Obama-Like Apology Tour

Failed Former Governor Sorry for Disastrous Four Years

 

 

“Georgians remember the reign of ‘King Roy’ Barnes, so a few phony, politically motivated apologies won’t conceal the damage he did to the state as governor.  Voters fired Barnes eight years ago and will reject him again as he runs for governor for the fourth time.”

- Tim Murtaugh, Republican Governors Association

The Republican Governors Association today launched a new television advertisement highlighting former Governor Roy Barnes’ pleas for forgiveness for his disastrous four years as governor of Georgia.  The ad draws a comparison between Barnes’ mea culpa tour and the numerous occasions on which President Barack Obama has apologized to various audiences for the actions and history of the United States.  The ad is supported by and can be found at the website www.Roybama.com.

“Georgians remember the reign of ‘King Roy’ Barnes, so a few phony, politically motivated apologies won’t conceal the damage he did to the state as governor,” said Tim Murtaugh, spokesman for the Republican Governors Association.  “Voters fired Barnes eight years ago and will reject him again as he runs for governor for the fourth time.”

Barnes’ apologies have centered on his mismanagement of public education and his habit of ramming through policies without including the people of Georgia. 

“Saying ‘I’m sorry’ may make Roy Barnes feel better about himself, but it does nothing for Georgia,” Murtaugh said.  “People don’t want apologies.  They want to know what you’re going to do to move Georgia forward.”
