Deal’s Cronies Fabricating Attacks To Cover For Deal’s Record – On September 14, 2010, the Republican Governor’s Association put up a new ad attacking former Governor Roy Barnes. The ad falsely attacks Barnes on both education and jobs.
Deal’s cronies must realize that they need to cover up his record. During Barnes’ tenure in the Governor’s office, Georgia gained 235,000 jobs and kept unemployment under 5% despite a recession; had lower class sizes; and had no teacher furloughs. The attack regarding job loss is a recycled 2002 attack that was proven false before. Washington politician Representative Nathan Deal on the other hand is one of the most corrupt members of Congress, votes against working Georgians and needs to hide his education record. No wonder the RGA must resort to false attacks

And you remember how he made Georgia last – dead last in education?
