Best ad ever

I don’t live in the 13th U.S. Congressional District (Wichita Falls-Amarillo area) but I heard a Mac Thornberry re-election campaign message on the radio last weekend.

He talked about the importance of voting and America’s unique position in the world. It was positive, uplifting and made me proud to be an American.

He never attacked or even mentioned his opponent or the Obama administration. It was the classiest campaign ad I ever heard.

It’s too bad other politicians can’t follow his lead, instead of insulting our intelligence by subjecting us to a constant barrage of mudslinging, scare tactics and half-truths.
