Obama’s first take pulled because Obama mispronounced Hanabusa’s name

HONOLULU—HRP Executive Director Dylan Nonaka released the following statement regarding President Obama’s recent campaign ad for Colleen Hanabusa and Neil Abercrombie:

“Democrat candidates Neil Abercrombie and Colleen Hanabusa displayed how out of touch they are by basking in their endorsement by President Barack Obama.  While Obama remains personally popular in Hawaii his policies are not.  Across the nation, Democrat incumbents are running away from President Obama and Congressional Democrats because of the course their policies have taken our nation.

“Here in Hawaii, Democrats are running on an overdone message of hope and change and think voters don’t remember that Democrats have dominated Hawaii politics for four decades.  The real ‘hope’ and ‘change’ are Republican candidates committed to a better future, innovative solutions for our economy and education system and preservation of our islands, our culture and our families.

“Abercrombie has been in D.C. for two decades and this endorsement just promises more of the same out-of-touch governing Abercrombie has displayed as one of Hawaii’s Congressman. 

“President Obama’s first take was pulled because Obama mispronounced Hanabusa’s name and the ad content was almost verbatim the same as the one the President did for Abercrombie.  Just like their mainland Democrat handlers, a vote for Abercrombie and Hanabusa is a rubber stamp for the status quo.”
