A painful lesson Carter taught me in the 1984 Hunt-Helms race was the power of using your opponents’ own words against him.
I thought of that when – for the first time – I saw Bill Graham’s ad against the state gas tax increase.
His last line – after saying the politicians want him to go away – was: “We’re not going anywhere.”
Well, if we follow him, he’s absolutely right. We won’t go anywhere.
