Obama makes radio ad for Kendrick Meek

by George Bennett | October 11th, 2010



Speaking over a keyboard background that makes it sound like he might burst into song at any moment, President Obama has cut a new radio ad for Democratic Senate candidate Kendrick Meek.

The president, visiting South Florida this afternoon to raise money for Democratic U.S. Rep. Ron Klein, calls Miami congressman Meek “a powerful voice for Floridians.”

Script for new Kendrick Meek radio ad….

President Obama:

This is Barack Obama and I want you to know why I strongly support Kendrick Meek for U.S. Senate.

Kendrick’s been a powerful voice for Floridians: standing up to special interests, to hold Wall Street accountable, fighting the insurance industry to make sure health care isn’t denied to our children because of a preexisting condition, working to eliminate subsidies to banks so young people can afford a college education, and Kendrick strongly opposes extending tax breaks for the wealthy and has worked tirelessly to expand the middle class and support small businesses.

So please join me in supporting Kendrick Meek for Senate.

Because if we work together, he will win.

Kendrick Meek:

I’m Kendrick Meek, candidate for senate, and I approve this message.

    Vote NO for all democrat candidates.

    Debbie Wasserman Schultz congresswoman from S FL- what did she say: “Haiti IS Florida’s 69th county”

    Any question where she and the rest of Florida’s democrats stand? It’s Amnesty and Open Borders for them.

    We can’t even give a COLA to those who receive Social Security but can give immigrants Social Security money when they haven’t even contributed to the fund!

    That’s democrats for you. They dominate our government-Congress (Pelosi), Senate(Reid) and Executive Branch (Obama, plus his LIFETIME judicial nominees)

    break the strangle hold democrats have on our government. NO to ALL democrats

    Meanwhile off the coast of Boca Raton, 30 illegals seeking to access to the USA.

    Just wait…hUmanitarian compensation will be coming from Obama. NO to ALL democrats. Florida will suffer mightily under a democrat senator and more importantly a democrat governor who will support every Obama initiative.

    Democrats want to grant them AMNESTY.

    What is more important for Florida Democrats: Meek finishing second and letting Marco Rubio win?”, can some common sense democrats address this question?

  3. Clowns to the left; Jokers to the right Says:

    Ycb: You are a truth teller.

    Never give up on the rational center.

    An open letter to Mr. Meek
