Boyd’s latest attack ad portrays Black in swamp

Knoxville businessman Randy Boyd’s latest attack ad portrays Republican gubernatorial rival Diane Black as being part of the “D.C. Swamp” and the narrator refers to her as “D.C. Diane” five times in 30 seconds.

Transcript: “A 20-year professional politician, D.C. Diane Black. In the D.C. Swamp, D.C. Diane’s net worth increased by more than $40 million. While enriching herself, D.C. Diane worked to raise our taxes by $160 million, while cutting her taxes by millions. And as budget chair, D.C. Diane let the debt soar to $21 trillion. D.C. Diane Black: Out for herself, no us.”

    Those statements are true! Voters need to know.

  • James White says:

    Not to mention how much the current representatives pay for their Chair.

  • Stuart I. Anderson says:

    No my fellow informed conservatives, you are not obligated as a good citizen to watch these mindless adds that threaten to actually lower your IQ if you watch too much of them. Rather just wait, watch the polls and allow early voting to pass and get ready on election day to unleash the ANYBODY BUT BOYD strategy by voting for the candidate most likely to defeat Randy!.

    • Tennessee Jed says:

      Am I not obligated to read your grammatical mistakes as well? Even Ole Tennessee Jed is not that bad.

      Do the Blacks earn the bulk of their income through LLC distribution? THE LLC rate under the Trump Tax plan went from 39.6% to the low 20%. This was NOT at all what the Reagan tax plan did although Diane/Trump did a Hard Sell claiming that it was. Those receiving income through a salary or through capital gains did not fare well at all, relatively speaking. Regular earned income rates came down by nearly nothing; capital gains rates did not come down at all. Thresholds for rate application did increase somewhat but the bottom line is that Trump, with his 500 LLC did very well indeed and we need to know not just what Diane makes, but how she makes it, to know whether she received a large windfall.

      • Stuart I. Anderson says:

        Sorry, Diane is worth about $100,000,000. I don’t really about her finances or alleged skullduggery. If she violated the law indict her, convict her, jail her and throw away the key for all I care. If not, why don’t we simply move on!

        I care very much how this state will be governed for the next eight years and eight more years of uninspiring centrist government under Randy! during which conservatives have to be screaming, calling the General Assembly, petitioning etc. to get anything done/prevent bad things from being done is something I would like to avoid. ANYBODY BUT BOYD!

  • James White says:

    Stuart’s way has proven to be wrong. Just look who we have: Bill Haslam, Bob Corker, Lamar Alexander. Yes voting against someone is guaranteed to give you someone you do not want. Why not vote for who You want to Win and let the Lord’s will be done?

    • Stuart I. Anderson says:

      Have you ever read anything so silly! Just trudge to the polls and vote for someone who is going to get 0.0001% of the vote and “. . .let the Lord’s will be done” as we conservatives, for the next eight years, engage in the screaming, demonstrating, petitioning, calling in order to get Gov. Randy! to do the right thing. Doesn’t that sound like “a plan” that makes you look to the future with optimism?

      Please my fellow conservatives, lets not be chumps AGAIN and split our vote three ways only to lose. Be an ABB (ANYBODY BUT BOYD) Voter so we at least have a chance to kinda, sorta win!

        I’m with you. Stuart. Smart Republicans agree, “Politics is a Team Sport. Boyd should have paid his corporate taxes instead of funneling his money through Ireland and the Caymans. It may be legal but it’s not okay. Diane Black may be wealthy now, but she certainly did not have a wealthy family and easy life. She has a heart for people. You talk to her, as I have and you will know.

        • benton temple says:

          Liberal D.C. Diane Black literally got rich off of taxpayer money funneled to her husband’s company while she was an elected official. Sorry, but that’s way worse than anything Boyd or Lee did in their businesses.

  • R. Sanders says:

    Diane Black represents Diane Black. Period. She always has…always will. She is a “For-PROFIT politician. I’m not a yellow dog democrat by any means. I’ve voted for many republicans…honorable men and women. BUT when it comes to Diane Black, I’d vote for a dog of any color, a stuffed one or a dead one.

  • Donna Locke says:

    The Democrats voting in this R primary are going to mess it up anyway. And the vote-splitting between apparent conservatives gives us people like Haslam.

    Diane Black is the way to go.

    • benton temple says:

      Nope. D.C. Diane Black is a career politician and a moderate. She is so swampy. Literally made money off of big government. Bill Lee or Randy Boyd for me.

      • Stuart I. Anderson says:

        Every scorekeeper who evaluates votes of members of Congress say you are wrong about Diane’s voting record. If Diane is a “moderate” what are Alexander and Corker, socialist and liberal? Somehow, however, I don’t think that makes any difference to you.

        Why don’t you do this and give us all a break. Vote for Lee. He has positively, absolutely no political record or opinions that haven’t been conjured up by his campaign staff just for this election, but we just might get lucky and as governor he may surround himself with the right people. On the other hand Boyd is a centrist (or on your scale a “liberal”) who will certainly surround himself with fellow centrists from the Republican establishment which will make the next eight years most unpleasant.

        • benton temple says:

          Of course you have nothing to actually point to that is factual that backs up your argument on Boyd. Diane however tried to stop Trump from getting the GOP nod in 2016. AND she’s on video saying that a wall can’t be built.

          Sorry, Stuart. I’ll take D.C. Dane Black’s word for it.

          • Stuart I. Anderson says:

            Just for your own storehouse of information of all the politicians in this country Mitt Romney is the one Randy! has stated that he “aspire[s] to be like. . . ” after supporting and raising money for Romney. In an interview with the Knoxville Mercury when asked how he would self identify ideologically he indicated “I’m a moderate.”

            Randy Boyd is a moderate. Diane Black is a tepid conservative. Why don’t you vote for Lee!

          • Donna Locke says:

            Ted Cruz was the better option on immigration control and some other things, as we know now, even some of us who voted for Trump, so your point, Benton, escapes me. You’re just throwing stuff at the nonexistent Wall and hoping it sticks. Trump is probably our last hope, but I would vote for Cruz if he ran against him next time.
