THIS IS THE BEST POLITICAL TV AD SINCE REAGAN'S MORNING IN AMERICA:
I BELIEVE ROMNEY JUST WON THE ELECTION:

As much as I disagree with Romney on so many issues, on the issue of the economy and backing America in that regard, his record is stellar.
That is certainly the best one of this year. They need more of the same. This should not be a two or three week story. What Obama said gave us a clear look at what he’s about. They need to hammer him on it.
It needs to be on TV and in front of people every possible day. It is past time to take off the gloves and shove this up the democrat party collective asses every chance we get. I want them to take the democrats down in the mud and drown them in it.
FUBO & FAD
“Best” and “most effective” don’t equate absolutely.
Consider “Willie Horton” or “Swift Boat”.
Yes, I agree that is a very good ad but “Morning in America” was a positive, pride filled ad that reminded us that we still pride in America after the disaster of Carter era.
Don’t know about “best since Reagan”, but it’s good.
Keep it up, Romney.
Now about Sarah Palin...
good ,,, but I expect better ,,, there’s a miriad of video of 0bama saying one thing and doing exactly the opposite . I want to see all that in a rapid fire 30 second ad . That would qualify as the BEST . . .
DISAGREE... ITS NOT TOO LONG BECAUSE IT IS SO COMPELLING AND WELL DONE!!
I have a very strong disdain for hyperbole. I saw this exact same posting 4 years ago. “OMG, THIS COMMERCIAL WAS AWESOME, MCCAIN’S GOT THIS IN THE BAG, HE’S GOING TO WIN, OBAMA IS DONE, DONE, DONE, LIKE AN OVERCOOKED STEAK!”
Meh. It then turned out McCain was a cold fish and couldn’t hold his own in debates, out on the campaign trail or ever go on the offensive, always playing defense and walking around on his heels.
It needs to be edited down to 30 seconds.
I agree, this ad is a homerun. It could very easily be edited to 60 seconds so it could run on TV in several versions, with different business owners speaking.
“You didn’t build that...” will haunt our Dear Leader from now to election day.
Positive, upbeat and anti-anti-Capitalist, Hate-American, B. Hussein Obama.
Now we must await the Hate Mitt and Mormon crowd to make their appearance to tell us why Mitt is still the worst of the 2 candidates; more eeeevil, more dangerous, more of a threat to our National Security, etc. and why we should just all stay home come Nov or look for a 3rd party candidate.
It’s real good.
I’d rather he say that Obama is “...insulting to Americans” rather than “...insulting to entrepreneurs and business people.”
Broaden the attack.
Great ad. Thanks for sharing. Agreed that on economic issues (which are likely to decide the election), Romney should be able to throttle Obama. This ad will go a long way in doing that. If he doesn’t pull his punches and sticks it to the Kenyan the way he did Gingrich and Perry, then he has a chance. This has been a great week for Romney.
If he wins, it will be up to us to hold his feet to the fire on the other issues where he has been weak in the knees.
As a (very) small businessman my blood boils every time I hear that quote from Obama. Given the number of self-employed people in this country, that ad (trimmed to one minute) and played during a major event like the World Series (or some television event where much of the country tunes in) would be a gut punch to that marxist twerp.
Another great ad and one of my all-time favorites:
If Romney keeps with the “It’s Time to Rebuild” slogan, this election is OVER, and he walks away with it.
It’s a really powerful phrase - as it implies that President Obama was (or is) waging war on America.
“Dewhurst finally had a good ad. He is standing in south Texas calling for border security.”
You mean he’s giving Cruz a break. I thought the Dewhurst bunch was about to put antennas on Cruz and claim he’s an alien.
As to this ad - lip service is sure nice, but when Arizona and Alabama are actually passing laws to crack down on Illegals and Dewhurst is being Governor Perry’s bitch in the Senate and BLOCKING the same attempts, I don’t think the ad carries much weight.
“Yes, I agree that is a very good ad but Morning in America was a positive, pride filled ad that reminded us that we still pride in America after the disaster of Carter era.”
You can’t really run a very positive ad if you’re challenging an incumbent. I mean, would “Morning in America” work for Romney, now - I don’t think so. The key is to connect to the little people, and he’s done that. I do hope there’s a Spanish version of it too, as Hispanics have a tendency to operate lots of small businesses and work their tails off - it would be VERY EFFECTIVE.
Best in 30 years...not hardly...
“We need somebody who believes in us ... we need somebody who believes in America.”
Americans, are you listening?
LOCALIZE the ad to run in each individual market! Find a well-respected LOCAL small businessman or woman (minorities welcome) and splice in their comments! Then run that ad in each TV market. Do it!

...and if the business can have a wide enough reach in its community, that’s even better (i.e., having a guy that machines ball bearings probably doesn’t mean as much as a guy that runs an honest auto repair business [assuming that they can find one, LOL]).
It is the first doohurst ad that I have seen where he is not ragging on Cruz with half truths and outright lies. People who have not been paying attention will be impressed.

But I thought Cruz was born on Mars!! LOL. I hear you...but Dewhurst is quickly running out of time to make his case.
Mars? I thought Cruz was born in China!
Terrible Cspan quality at the end. Don’t they have enough money to record all his speeches in HD? And needs to be 60 sec.
“Mars? I thought Cruz was born in China!”
Ding-Dong, he wasn’t born in China, he’s simply a CHINESE AGENT who’s only goal is to send us to the Ash-Heap of History.
You need to get better in touch with Mr. Dewhurst.
In the last two days I have not heard or seen a negative ad from Dewhurst against Cruz and the new ones focused totally on what he would do on certain issues. Understand he also finally agreed to the last debate with Cruz on Monday. Would suspect that someone on his team finally got the message about what all the negativity was doing to his ratings.
Interesting about beefing up the border security in Texas. He has been in office down here a long time and in a position to take steps to close and secure our borders long before now. Why don’t we have mandatory E-verify for all businesses? Why do we spend so much of our Texas money on benefits for illegals and anchor babies? Why do we have so many more ESL classes in our public schools? Why are all the largest cities solid sanctuary cities? Why hasn’t he already done something about these issues?
But it all matters not because those of us in Texas who pay attention have already seen and know who the real Dewhurst is and know what he has not accomplished while in office here and will vote for Cruz.
I have already voted for Cruz once and I plan to vote for him again next week and then again in Nov. Pretty solid proof that I am not a doohurts fan.
TV TIME IS BOUGHT IN 30-SECOND INTERVALS, CAPITAL-LETTER PSYCHO.
“I BELIEVE ROMNEY JUST WON THE ELECTION”
Nice commercial, but no “game changer”.
The roughly 44% of the population that supports Obama will see the business owners in this ad as just being representative of the “greedy capitalists” they have been conditioned to hate.
It may swing a few independent votes, though...
The sliver of independents are the only ones that will determine this election....AND the business people that are Dems or Reps that voted for Oboz last time around.
HEY...Mr “know it all-in charge of the Freep site and the entire Univers”...
I notice that you didn’t Freep anyone else who used caps...OR call them a PSYCHO.
Get over it.
None of them pinged me.
I was watching a show I recorded last night and a 30 second version of this commercial was broadcast on a Dayton, Ohio station.
