Skip to comments.The Faces of John Kerry's Democratic Party(New Bush Ad is Devastating)
Posted on 06/25/2004 5:22:47 AM PDT by finnman69
"The Faces of John Kerry's Democratic Party" "The Coalition of the Wild Eyed."
It shows clips of the unhinged Al Gore (how dare they drag the good name of the US), Howard Dean(I want my country back), Dick Gephardt(This President is a miserable failure), Michael Moore from the Oscars, John Kerry (kick their ass), and shows some of the Nazi/Bush comparisons from Moveon.org.
It is not a pretyy picture.
Then it is contrasted with "This is not a time for pessimism and rage" "It is a time for optimism, steady leadersnip, and progress".
Holy crap! Are they going to be playing this on tv? It's wonderful!
What is that saying again ... hmm ... in politics you are either on defence or offence?
First accurate thing Kerry ever said: George Bush will kick his a$$.
God I hope I see that on TV. That and more club for Growth ads.
WOW! This is too good not to be played on TV!
About time they did this! Next on the list should be showing Algore and his psychotic rants about "no Iraq-Al-Qaida link-Bush lied" and then show all the times in the past where he himself said Saddam had ties to terror.
Hell of a pre-movie trailer for Fahrenheit 9/11!
I thought the best way to do such and ad would be to clone how Michael Moore does his phony "documentaties". Make it look ust like one. Call it something like "Bowling for Nutcases" or "Farennutz-911".
I would not give Moore to much free advertising. The ad is a little rough, but in principal its great is exposing some awful clips of unhinged Rats to the public.
Thanks for the heads up on this!
Also, for a bit of humor, a short clip of the Howard Dean "Yeeeaaarrggghh!!!" should be inserted into the ad a few times.
IT'S ABOUT TIME THIS DOG HAS BEEN LET OFF IT'S LEASH!!!
I'm personally tired of seeing Gore getting any TV time at all. That was one of the perks of voting for President Bush that I counted on-not having to listen to that idiot talk. And after seeing him running in his spandex shorts during the recount fiasco-well that was another reason I was thrilled he wasn't elected.
I bet the second and thrird versions will have a few Ted Kennedy Rants included... :)
This ad is atrocious....
There is hardly any indication that this is a Bush ad until the end. Its giving raging lunatics 50 seconds of spewing then the Bush company gives a one liner.
They should separate each lunatic with a calming Bush setting including quotes or campaign statements.
Its confusing watching it the first time when its going on about Nazis in 1945 after Gore screams about Abu Ghraib.
Pull this one and redo it. Its too quick for an unknowing viewer to consume it after realizing its a Bush ad.
Finally, have the GOP woken up from their sleep? This is great and exceptional! I mean, how can any one in his right mind compare President Bush who is the savior of America to hitler who murdered MILLIONS of people?
I agree, the editing is just awful. To someone who doesn't know about the moveon.org ads, it looks like Democrats are being compared to Nazis. On my computer, you can't even read the text under the video of Hitler. Also, there's nothing to show that Bush is any better except for some soothing piano music.
Ping for later, when I need to "borrow" this photograph :)
I agree it needs work
Sounds like just the right ad.
How much clearer can you get. It's 1/3 of the ad.
I also didn't like it - it is too easy for people to remember the nazi scenes as being on a pubbie ad.
I would rather they did an interview on the street ad, with people saying
"I trust the President"
when asked if they are worried about terrorism.
Haven't seen the message, but I hope they run it before a random audience before they air it. I'm not sure that running all those diatribes will have the desired effect on a random audience.
Agreed it could be "tweak" a bit.
Adding the "Digital Brown Shirts" line from Gore yesterday would be good.
Dittos, this ad kicks a## and I'd like to see it played nation wide. TD
OH c'mon Finn you know every Bush ad Sucks, the campaign is being run all wrong, Bush is catering to the Rino's and forgettting his base, Rove is an idiot, I guess they want Kerry to win, blah blah blah etc etc etc
Agreed. And some Bush voiceover.
It may not be designed for a random audience. Depends on where they make the ad buys. Likely its for swing states in GOP leaning areas.
LOL, the naysayers rather have the campaign sit on its hands.
I have to say I agree with your whole post.
I thought the ad worked beautifully. I'm watching these raving lunatics trashing my country, my President, our war, and by association, our brave fighting men. My blood was nearly boiling. Then all of a sudden, I'm calmed by the vision of a true leader. Shoot, I teared up at the end.
Put me down in the "great ad" column.
Still, they need to test it before they run it. What a conservative audience thinks is devastating to the Dems may or may not be devastating to the actual audience.
Yeah, I agree. They could have dropped the Hitler footage altogether. It doesn't sit well. It might not sit well with those on the fence as it doesn't necessarily explain that this is what democrats are comparing President Bush to. It might appear to be Republicans comparing dems to Nazis, especially the footage of Hitler on a raging speech there in between. The 'Rats' ad was dropped in 2000 for the same reason.
Merely showing the insanity of the left would have been enough. Then, as you said, with a calm and collected George Bush at the end.
As a side note, Evan Maloney of Brain-Terminal.com could make a great ad with his footage. I'm sure the official campaign wouldn't be about to use footage of the average leftist American, but a third party could.
This is the sort of add I love to see. Skewer 'em with their own words.
Democrats will, of course, say the are not responsible for what they say or do.
LOL!!! Yesterday's rant by gore was disgusting. Is he really that stupid? I am so glad Florida came through for us.
More comments on this ad here (click comments):
I agree. It's a terrible ad. Great idea. But terribly done. I wouldn't be surprised if the left actually LIKES it!
If you think about the ad's message, it's pro-GWB and has a good point. But the problem is, most people won't think about it, especially since it's an ad, and we've been conditioned to ignore ads.
A lot of DUers love the ad. Naturally, since they are the wild-eyed and see nothing wrong with the mental states of Gore, etc.
I didn't see a "I am GWB and I approve this ad" so I am assuming that this is still a work in progress. Probably released to scare the RATS and force them into going nasty early. Another Republican strategy to keep the RATS off balance.
When this airs, expect to see the Hitler reference removed and a "Lie after Lie after Lie" or the "Black Helicopter" quote from Teddy be added. We may even see a "Pelosi Special" although I do not think most Amnericans can identify her.
Yeah, content aside, why would any ad, to be distributed on the net, have small text in it that can't be resolved at low resolution? As for the content, I'm sure the dems LOVE having the Hitler/Bush imagery repeated for them.
Jeeez! Don't look at this from an educated freeper standpoint, look at what the swing voter would see!!! Hello?
