New RNC Ad

What do you think?

BTW – I know some people believe that even while we oppose Obama we still have to keep beating the tribal drums against the GOP. That means when we see an ad like this one we’re supposed to either ignore it or condemn it. If we say something even mildly positive like “It will be effective in the midwest” we will be denounced as ratfuckers.

That’s bullshit.

I call ’em like I see ’em.

    And that’s why everybody loves ya—you call em like you see em. Honesty and integrity, and all that. No veal pen for you!

    It matters. Thanks for all you do. πŸ™‚

      One of the saddest things I’ve ever seen is the way so many people I respected and admired (Krugman, Digby,) turned into shills for Obama and the Democrats.

      • In other words, no principles whatsoever, just tribal loyalty. Pathetic, sad, and very destructive in the end. Same goes for the idiots that do the same for the Republicans.

        Principles before party. Or even simpler, for god sake, have some fucking principles please.

      • Mary says:

        Me too.

        It’s insulting how stupid they think we are. We’re not.

        I don’t miss Krugman or Digby/Spoon at all. Just a different kind of veal pen, selectively reporting to misguide. How’s that make em any different than the very media they used to despise? It doesn’t.

        Even when I disagree with ya, buddy, I admire your logic and fact finding, and your courage to speak your mind.

        Hell, most of the people who came to TC , came for YOU.

          Riverdaughter writes some excellent posts but I can’t say I always agree with her. I kind of take the attitude that it is her place and she can do what she wants.

          The ONE person who has never offended me (that I can remember) is myiq.

          I agree completely, Mary, myiq was the glue that held that place together. I’m just glad you didn’t give up blogging altogether after all the bullshit, myiq. We do love our klown!

        • DeniseVB says:

          Add me to the myiq group hug πŸ˜€ I never posted at TC as that’s her sandbox, her rules. That’s fine too.

    • foxyladi14 says:

      yes thanks. πŸ™‚

    • Lola-at-Large says:

      100% agree. I love the actual diversity of opinion here. Myiq & crawdad are good at fostering that.

    This will work for independents and there are more of those now than ever.

    His domestic policy has been a nightmare for too many people. He needs to be fired. I am sorry there isn’t a good liberal alternative but that isn’t anything I can control.

    I can only control my vote and my vote sure as hell won’t be helping obama.

    You must hate and fear those you are told to hate and fear or you are a right wing rat “lover”. lol, sheesh. I know, I resemble that remark.

  5. 1539days says:

    I’m just waiting for the hilarious outrage from Debbie Downer about how her own words were used in the ad.

  6. murphy says:

    The content of the ad is effective, highlighting that even democratic leaders and leftish journalists are very critical of obama’s first term. But lordy, the End of the World Music is insulting to the viewers’ intelligence and reveals a desire on the admaker’s part to hit us over the head with propaganda. I give it a B, maybe a B-

    • Lola-at-Large says:

      Agree, but it’s only a good ad insofar as it’s playing now. Timing is everything, and if the GOP is smart, they will be going negative now so that later, after enough damage is done, they can go positive. That’s just smart electoral politics, especially with this particular race. An ad like this wouldn’t have the same heft in the fall.

  7. Karma says:

    It’s a good ad.

    Brutal to use all those quotes against him and completely avoidable. His desire to get the quote out vs actionable policies created this ad. And worse he’s sloppy with his rhetoric which creates more opportunities to pull quotes.

    And being an informed voter/citizen requires you watch both sides with a wary eye. Not just the other team. That so many people forgot their principles in the name of party, is their failing.

    I think Obama is right, we are no better off than we were 4 years ago and many of us are a lot worse off. I think someone else needs to take the helm in november, during this unprecedented worldwide economic crisis and obviously the democrats are not going to nominate anyone else, which just leaves the GOP (and possibly a third party candidate who would be more than likely to lose). I could not and would not cast a vote for Bachman, Perry, Santorum or Gingrich, I would have to sit this one out if, in the unlikely event, one of them are the GOP nominee, but I could possibly vote for Romney and definitely for Huntsman. I think there are lots of former democrats and current independents like me who agree.
    Just my .02 cents.

    thank you, myiq–your personality comes through your post and it is nice. Nice shouldn’t be under rated–not enough of it around.

    Was watching CNN late this afternoon and Wolf was talking to Borger (sp?) and David Gergen about Newt being so angry about all the negative ads against him. Gergen said that Romney’s pac going after Newt allowed Romney to look all above the fray. He then said that Romney was quite ruthless, just like Obama. I almost fell out of my chair–am pretty sure I heard it right. It was like-ok, you knew what was going on and said nothing then.
