Joe Jordan keeps asking whether the Jim Suttle for Mayor campaign has enough cash to win in Omaha.
So is the Suttle campaign, as a whole, as big of a mess as this mailer the campaign sent out?
Take a look:
We are more than a bit shocked this piece got sent out by a big-time campaign. Frankly we are wondering if they accidentally sent a draft version to the printer — but even then someone has to sign-off on the final copy.
So let us take a look at a few of the misprints:
“If you believe in better…”
What are we talking about here, Suttle camp? Or what are we believing in…?
(And since when is “Getting things done.” a sentence? But maybe that’s just us.)
Now we will flip it over and we see…
“Jim suttle has proven himself…”
Hmm. Spell-check didn’t catch that one huh? Maybe they changed the spell-checker so that “subtle” was changed, and it just didn’t get picked up. Ah well.
“He’s created over 12,000 new jobs…”
Oh really??? HE HAS, has he? Opened up his own lard rendering plant or some such, yeah?
Oh wait, sure he has repeated this claim over and over and over and over. But then he changed his mind in the TV debate and noted that “he” created these jobs in the 5 county metro area.
But how about, you know, “Omaha” during the suttle…er Suttle years?
Well, according to the Chamber of Commerce, that was a 17,000 job LOSS.
At least this item probably wasn’t misprint.
Suttle either “lowered the city’s crime rate” (yeah, you can bicker about THOSE stats again)
…or he worked on the “City’s” bond rating.
Is Omaha a “city” or is it a “City”?
(And when you say “city” enough it doesn’t even sound like a real word anymore…)
And about that “Triple A” bond rating. Just a note.
The preferred reference is “AAA”.
Ah, but don’t worry, suttle campaign:
“…the best day are still ahead.”
It’s been a hell of a week in the real world outside of the Leavenworth Street HQ.
More when we have it.
