This ad was playing in Springfield over a week ago. It was replaced by the second ad several days ago.
It must have just been put on YouTube or I missed it earlier.
New to YouTube but not to TV.
Awful young, and not just the two sons. I worry about this.
The Constitution says he's old enough and I don't have to worry about him breaking into a flop sweat on the way to the House floor. Billy making it two years is a risky bet. (Oops, did I say "bet"?)
Goodman is what is wrong with Washington. The Founders wanted men in office who had successful careers outside government, served for a time, and then returned home. It is clear that young Goodman is well on his way to being a career politician: lawyer, state rep, state senator, house, senate, governor ...
You're what's wrong with voters. You don't have your facts, so you recite the same old populist complaints. Jack was a prosecutor for years, not just a "lawyer" (and by the way, when did that become a dirty word? The lack of legislators who understand the law and how to write legislation is why state laws keep getting overturned by the courts. If you populate Congress or Jeff City with only insurance salesmen, farmers, businessmen -- or auctioneers -- and no one else, you get laws that make no sense). Do you even know that there's no such thing as a "career" politician in Jeff City? They're part time, and term-limited. And you have no earthly idea what Jack's intentions are after a two-year term in Congress, unless you've been privy to conversations with him that you haven't shared with us. So spare me the "what's wrong with Washington" baloney when I'm willing to bet you haven't spent any more time there than Jack has.
