I congratulate whoever in Biden's WH is getting the message out

It has always been so disappointing in the past how the rightwing media machine would always overrun and destroy anything Democrats did.

Recently I've been seeing a number of ads doing two important things right - Touting accomplishments AND bluntly telling what republicons want to do.

Just today, I've seen at least four different ads on the Food Network spelling out four different things that will save Americans money. And my favorite, that bullet-points what Democrats have passed, then warns in plain language what republicons intend to do, then says straight out "vote for Democrats".

It's about time plain-spoken ads like that saturate TV. Along with the way the WH has been immediately publicizing how much loan forgiveness was gotten by every republicon who opens their filthy mouths about the student loan announcement.

They're doing great now, I hope the keep it up and keep up that type of ad and response.

to whatever communication director or whoever it is that is responsible.

Not just the demographics but the fact that it’s just on for a lot of households at least until right about now at noon.

to seeing ads there and on tv watched in general than to ads people post here.

We don't need to be convinced, the public does.

And that's about when the TV goes off, right after the last "how-to" show.

I absolutely loved hearing President Biden refer to Maga in the negative way they need to be referred to, and how he pointed out not a single Republican voted for the new bill that helps Americans.

I wanna meet the people, or probably I don’t want to actually, who this November don’t vote because they don’t think there’s any reason to. Grrrr

I get more and more impressed by Biden. Competent leadership. Smart enough to stay out of Trump state secret documents investigation, and refer questions and comments to the DOJ. Smart enough to do student loan forgiveness and stand up to GOP hypocracyy about it.

then $400,000.00 a year. - good message, good optics with President Biden mingling and shaking hands with us working folk. Democrats responsible for this message, Vote for Democrats.

This was on the new show, which I love: "Mary Makes It Easy" She's a young lady who makes delish and simple date night dinners. Very cute.

The wording is excellent, short & to the point. Previously, if they even mentioned it, there would have been too many weasel-words and vague phrasing.

I missed most of that show this morning, saw just the end when she made that French souffle-omelet thing. It looks pretty good, so I printed that recipe to try

I did hear the DNC chair as a guest on Stephanie Miller a month or so ago say they plan on slamming the messaging out as we get closer to Nov. because of funding and the absurd short attention span of America. Spending for adds this far out is forgotten before the weeks out, much less months in advance. Plus, the accomplishments are rolling out faster than we can keep up with, and we need to be certain Sinclair owned media get it out. There is SOOOO much to crow about. I hope they hammer SS and Medicare destruction plans by Scott, Johnson and Graham as frequently as the idiots screaming about Medicare Advantage scam every other commercial. Just never let a Jimmy Dynomite type be the spokesman for is.
The White House PPP release was brilliant. More please. And more calling them Fascist, full blown, not semi. The duck walking and talking is right in our face.

needs to keep pumping out those generic campaign ads. I only saw a couple of them, if they are saving them for when we get closer to the election I like it. Those generic ads need to keep running. The Magat party has always made the Democratic party the bad guys, well it's time to flip the script, and we don't have to lie.

How he keeps referring to MAGA Republicans. It makes MAGA sound like an insult. Plus, it distinguishes the crazy from the sane Republicans who are left. It's like saying "You're part of us, not the MAGA Republicans."

And his approval ratings are up as a result. I will also

Turns the term "MAGA" into a negative, and then pairs it up directly to the word "Republicans."

Call 'em how you see 'em.

Call 'em what they ARE.


Somebody's got to tell the truth around here. It certainly won't be the GOP, which is why WE have to step up - and HELP OUR DEMS!!! And HAVE THEIR BACKS!!!

For those who complained about the fairness of tuition loan forgiveness.
That was pure political art. Maybe we have a fighter in the White House now.

The only thing I can complain about is it's the Veep's job to be the administration attack dog while the president remains above the fray. Presumably, he's too busy to fight. She seems too content to sit in a corner with a squeaky toy.

maybe she does and it just doesn't get the publicity.

But I also think this is a little different situation. I like seeing Biden getting out there and not taking any of their shit. Fox and Hate Radio have tried to portray him as "doddering, senile, sleepy, feeble, incompetent, weak" and every single time he makes an appearance he completely proves that wrong. So that may be why whoever decides these things is getting Biden more exposure. And it's working.
