The latest ad from 10th CD GOP candidate Chris Hackett seems a little odd to me. You can watch it HERE under the title "Best."
In brief, the ad is designed to promote Hackett as a man with conservative values. OK. But, what's odd - at least to me - is the way the ad begins. A woman's voice asks "Who can best represent our values and take on the liberals in Congress?" and, superimposed on an image of the Capitol, we see a picture of Chris Hackett on the left and a picture of Hillary Clinton on the right.
The first time I saw the spot, I thought "Why is there a picture of Hillary Clinton there?" Last time I checked, Hackett wasn't running for president and Clinton wasn't running for a congressional seat in PA.
Is the picture of Hillary supposed to represent the "liberals in Congress?" If so, I think it's not a great choice because there are Senators and Representatives who are WAY more liberal than she is, aren't there? How about Ted Kennedy? Barney Frank? There must be more, I think.
Anyway, the ad strikes me as being off-base with its use of Hillary's image. It also makes me wonder why Hackett is not going after his real opponent - DAN MEUSER. That's the first choice voters will have to make before either one even gets close to taking on any liberals in Congress.
