With this ad, Corbett must think voters are dumb

Gov. Tom Corbett’s latest TV ad hits an all-time low. In it he blames Democratic candidate Tom Wolf for increases in taxes and unemployment because he was the state tax collector as revenue secretary under Gov. Ed Rendell. I’m sure that Mr. Corbett knows that the tax collector has nothing to do with the setting of the tax rates. His job is to collect the taxes set by the Legislature.

The only thing I can conclude from this ad is that Mr. Corbett thinks he can fool the voters into thinking Mr. Wolf set the tax rates. I would hope the voters are smarter than that. I also thought it was quite appropriate for the governor to choose a gas-guzzling monster truck to represent him in this ad.
