Malloy’s Latest Commercial Highlights ‘Determination’ Following Storms And Sandy Hook

August 4th, 2014 · 20 Comments · News and Events, State Politics

From Malloy campaign:

The Malloy campaign released its second television advertisement today entitled “Determination,” which highlights how the Governor provided steady leadership in challenging times to put Connecticut back on the path to progress. The 30-second spot will begin airing in the Hartford-New Haven and New York City media markets today with a buy of over $180,000 for this week.

The ad features testimonials from Milford Mayor Ben Blake and Newtown’s Nicole Hockley from Sandy Hook Promise.

“This ad continues to tell the clear story that in challenging times, Governor Malloy provided steady leadership and made tough decisions. Now, Connecticut is making progress,” said spokesman Mark Bergman. “There is more work to do to make sure every Connecticut family has the opportunities they need to succeed, and the stakes are too high to return to the failed policies of the past.”

    What did Malloy have to do with the tragedy at Sandy Hook? Is he taking credit because the state police responded?

    • Bob

      Absolutely nothing. All this is about is called “deflection.” It draws you away from the real issues where Malloy is an abject failure to a scenario of pity, emotion, and despair. The real issues fall by the wayside and become ignored.

  • Steven Auerbach

    Strength, Conviction, Progress. He has my vote.

    • Maria Pereira

      I think it is highly inappropriate to utilize the Sandy Hook tragedy as part of an election platform. I don’t care who the candidate is, it is pretty disgusting.

  • Andrew C Fardy

    Of course he does. Liberal, tax-raising, do-nothing Democrat.

    • Steven Auerbach

      :-) I agree with Maria Pereira. Sandy Hook should be off the table for a political campaign. Unless of course it is a misguided strategy by the Moore camp.

      • LennieGrimaldi

        Steve, Malloy’s gun-control legislation was a direct result of Sandy Hook. You’re supporting Malloy. What would your advice have been to Malloy who opposed releasing the Sandy Hook images? Oh that’s right, releasing the images of the slaughtered kids. How’s that for politicizing the issue? Release the images. You don’t want pols to politicize the issue but you have absolutely no problem telling everyone else the images should be released for the whole world to see for no other reason than you want to defend Musto because you dislike Marilyn Moore.

        • Andrew C Fardy

          Come on Steve, answer the question Lennie posed.

        • Steven Auerbach

          I can support a candidate without supporting all of their stands, no? Is that not possible? Did I mention I am supporting Musto? Do I imagine they will always agree? Bottom line, I will support the team that will support Bridgeport and our current Mayor. Most people will also vote accordingly. I just returned from Trumbull and I did in fact see Anthony Musto signs in neon orange Home Depot colors. Where’s my sign? By the way Lennie, I have quite a few friends who are working on David Walker’s campaign.

          • Andrew C Fardy

            Steve, that did not answer the question. Why is it all right for Musto to want the release of the Sandy Hook photos and not all right for Malloy to use the Sandy Hook incident in his campaign literature? Musto’s stand and Malloy’s campaign stuff are the same thing.

          • Steven Auerbach

            Because Andy, like most voters, nobody gives a crap whether Sandy Hook Photos are released or not. It has nothing to do with how anyone is going to vote. I think Moore’s team is deluded in using this as if anyone gives a shit.That’s my answer, I am about as interested in whether Musto and Malloy voted for or against the photos as well as whether yes or no, should chocolate milk be served in schools. This focus on the schools is probably the biggest mistake the Moore campaign and members of the blogosphere concentrate on.

          • LennieGrimaldi

            The parents of the victims care. So did James Brady.
            The TV replays did take a toll on Brady. He told The Associated Press years later he relived the moment each time.

            “I want to take every bit of (that) film … and put them in a cement incinerator, slosh them with gasoline and throw a lighted cigarette in,” he said.

    Have a bite on me …

  • Andrew C Fardy

    Steve, you are a self-centered prick, pure and simple. Now you say no one cares about the Sandy Hook photos and no one cares if they are released or not. That is pure bullshit on your part. People do care and people do not want those photos released with the exception of you and Musto. Now you are saying a vote by politicians on choosing chocolate milk or not is as important as a vote on the Sandy Hook photos.
    Steve, in all honesty you need a checkup from the neck up.

  • Steven Auerbach

    Andy, you can talk to your wife like that but not to me in a public forum. Sandy Hook is a horror, why are you talking about it? About pictures??? The families care, true Lennie. as well as countless thousands of people. But truth be told. Especially when you do not have a platform. Let’s go for the emotion of breast cancer survivors and agreeing with Malloy on not releasing the pictures. Nobody voting will consider this when voting for Musto. If anyone from Newtown is reading this blog, they may be upset with Musto. I am sure that is the extent of their anger and in a few years, the school will be gone and no pictures and one may wonder did this happen? Oh yeah, it will be a Lifetime movie, of this I am certain. And one of the teachers just got a book deal. I am certain there will be a lot of visuals, after all, what the hell can the teacher really talk about??? One page and the rest visual. That should be a comfort to the families. Andy, I am sure you can find more interesting battles to fight. This is a losing one. This horse has been beaten to death months ago and there is nothing new to add. Nothing. I listen to redundancies talking to Alzheimer’s on my free time, I do not need to repeat this story ad nauseum, Andy. Unless of course you keep forgetting how many times you have beaten this horse to death. I think the average voter in our city has Sandy Hook on a list of the top 100 issues we are dealing with at about 92. I am not talking about the deaths of children, the loss the families suffered, the senseless waste of life, the friends who have to live with it. The guilt the survivors feel, the absolute horror. I was not talking about releasing pictures with a clear distinction of who the individual was. Black and white. Blurred faces. That’s the last comment I have on this issue.

  • Andrew C Fardy

    Steve, I am glad these are your last words about Sandy Hook and Musto ,therefore I will not blog on the subject anymore. If you do, I will. BTW I will talk to you on this blog in the manner you deserve.
