Maybe The Best Ad Of The Political Season So Far…


Does the rhetoric of the Obama campaign bring about feelings of déjà vu, along with the inevitable nausea? If so, it could be ’cause we’ve heard it all before somewhere:

Have to say that the Republican National Committee has outdone itself with this new ad. With apologies to Abe Lincoln, you can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time—unless they are Obama voters.

UPDATE: Oscar thinks this one might actually be a little better. Decide for yourself.

UPDATE #2: Does this ad belong in the discussion? You guys are welcome to judge.

UPDATE #3: At least worth an honorable mention is the YoungCons’ ‘Are You Better Off’ spot which went up over the Oct. 21 weekend.

UPDATE #4: And a three-spot out of the Romney campaign on the day following the final debate.

UPDATE #5: This post would hardly be complete without a Clint Eastwood appearance in a campaign spot, right?

UPDATE #6: Regardless of the above, we nominate this for the worst ad of the cycle. Ugh.

UPDATE #7: Thanks to Michael Moore, Lena Dunham is no longer the worst political adster of 2012.

UPDATE #8: And now there’s the “Conservatism Is Calling” video, which isn’t so much a campaign ad as something everybody ought to see.

Plus, Romney has an ad out popping Obama for wanting to appoint a “Secretary of Business” – which is nothing but a warmed-over rehash of an old idea Obama had which never went anywhere.

    Who would you vote for if you didn't work and didn't want to work?

    All I want to know is who the Romney's are going to hire to fumigate the White House in January so I can buy stock in that company.

    Wow, aat least he is consistent

  5. Kenneth King says:

    Obama's so damned lazy he can't even be bothered to write new speeches, the only thing this clown recycles is his words. I don't know why, BULL CHIT IS CHEAP!

    Ronald Reagan? Come on, he was told what to do and what do say. That broken down excuse of the President was in Stage 1 of Dementia and all he did to make things run was Deregulate, Deregulate, Deregulate, allow Corporations to run wild with breaking Unions and move jobs out of the country without penalty. Ya, the True Bullshitting Republican Icon…Mitts the same without Dementia…he suffers from Romnesia.

  7. Dolf Reeves says:

    ….and the same results. I'm for Hope and Change. I HOPE Mitt wins because things will CHANGE for the better.

  8. Regurgitated PUKE! How can there still be anyone left in this country that doesn't see this? Perhaps they're all on leftover LSD from the '60s!

  9. He is a disgrace to the office of the Presidency!

    The TRAITOR OF BENGAZI should be put on Trial for Treason, over his Bengazi Cowardice, and if found guilty, Executed!

    Joe Aromando. Stop speaking/typing. You're ineffective at articulating anything sensical in your posts and you're embarrassing yourself… And frustrating the rest of us.

    Chris Reeves and Bob Landry, great, thought provoking posts from both of you.

    EddieInFl: SHAME. ON. YOU. you're a repugnant anti-Semite and a disgrace to the human race.

  15. John Bittle says:

    s.o.s., different campaign.

  16. They were going to do one like this for Mitt but when they went back, he didn't have any of the same positions or statements!

      Consistency: he closed Guantanamo, like he said. He earned the Nobel peace prize by escalation in Afghanistan, invading Libya, sending arms to Syria, financial embargo on Iran. He's been the most transparent Presidency – executive privilege used to protect Holder in Fast and Furious, etc.. He's supported "green" by sending green $ to Solyndra and three other large $ pits. NO, I don't have dreams of Romney solving all the problems. I just haven't drunk your cool-aid either.

    • Evan Shadduck says:

      The "cool-aid" comment sounds harsher than I want it to sound.
      I did a "thumbs up" on Ryan but didn't do it for Romney.
      I have heard that Ryan has big problems. Haven't read of them yet. I support the attempt to balance the budget – but in my world the defense department is fair game for cuts along with all other areas.

  17. At least one of the Obama sound bites was from the hurricane cleanup but that's not the point. I'd rather have a do nothing president than a president who has promised he will take more of my rights away; proven he has no concept of poverty; and has a history of sending jobs overseas.
