Many of us feel that we have the “high ground” in the battle with the right wing..

The Ad scheduled to run on the NFL game tomorrow is a bad ad and probably will have the opposite effect of what it was intended to do.. Reasons are numerous and have been discussed today. Many of us actually feel it will be shoved back into our faces as a “new Low” in Democratic talking points.

Anyone have any ideas on who to call and contact beyond the obvious? Maybe a letter from D.U.?

1. I think the ad is sophomoric at best.

 

It is embarrassing. To me.

3. I agree. I finally watched it and thought...wtf?

1-2 seconds at most...but it got uncomfortable watching after that.

2. My bet is that they very carefully vetted the ad with focus groups.

Too much at risk not to do something like that.

6. I didn't watch it. Don't care.

I trust they know what they're doing; I'm such a cultural outlier that my opinion on such things if often worthless.

10. To be honest with you..

This ad is so bad that seems that a group of swift boaters wrote it and directed it and somehow disguised it as a Dem. creation..

7. I hope so.

 

I can support it if it was received well in the focus group.

4. Thanks for your concern.

 

This is exactly the kind of politics we should have been using all along. People don't have the attention span to understand the actuarial merits of the ACA.

What they do understand is juvenile temper tantrums.

I really don't give a shit if we're "sinking to their level". Their tactics have won elections and enabled them to feel invincible.

8. They won elections because they appealed to the lowest forms of intelligence and hatred.

According to you this Ad is to do no more than shit kick some ignorant people around.. And you think that is the way to go...Strange..

The purpose of any ad which runs in prime time should be to pull more and more sensible low info middle of the roaders over to our side.. This is a perfect opportunity to do so.. But if anything, this crappy ad will do nothing but allow RNC to point out how low are standards are sinking.

You see I give a shit about us “sinking to their levels”, even if you do not!!

12. I can live with that.

 

So long as it wins elections.

The purpose of this ad is to make elected republicans the subject of ridicule. I say good.

Did you know that Nixon won the election of '72 with 61% of the popular vote? Two years later, those same voters were "Richard who?".

Americans have a remarkably malleable memory. When they see the screaming baby, they'll be wondering who could possibly have voted for these tea party jackasses, surely not themselves!

Fuck the high road. You can't govern if you don't win.

13. You sound really stuck.

Shit Nixon ran on winning the war and was impeached 2 years later.. It wasn’t Richard who.. It was Richard the Felon.

“You can’t govern if you don’t win”...Correct and once again thank God Obama does not listen to people like you.
He won the fucking election by being the adult in the room.

11. Exactly What Repubs. want us to do and exactly what Obama refused to do.

Perhaps thats why he was elected twice and his poll numbers are rising.
