This is a cool database of election commercials. It has the Republican commercials as well as those by..... well the other guys.
LOL. They have the John Kerry windsurfing commercial. I'm still laughing.
The tank ad is a classic.
I can't get it to play. The player says "undefined." Other sites work fine. Anybody else having the same issue?
I just tried it and had no problem. If I remember correctly, I had to choose my player and speed.
Which link did you try. The link in the title of the post or the Dukakis link?
And the Mondale/Ferraro "Ticket" commercial: while Reagan tries to slash medicare, they fight for seniors; While he forces 4 million people out of work, they fight for workers; and on tax breaks [WALTER MONDALE:] I refuse to make your family pay more so that millionaires can pay less. That sounds like it could have come out of the Kerry campaign. Do the Dems have any new ideas?
Mondale's "Rollercoaster" commercial: If you're thinking of voting for Ronald Reagan in 1984. . .Think of what will happen in 1985. Hey, thanks for warning me. 1985 (and 6 and 7 and 8...) were pretty good.
Mondale's "Failure 3" ad: Yikes, showing the flag draped caskets of the Marines killed by Arab terrorists in Beruit. And the Dems wonder why President Bush didn't want the caskets of those killed in Iraq filmed.
I'm proud to say that Reagan was the first President I was old enough to vote for. I was 20.
I agree that "The Bear In The Woods" is one of the all-time classics. It's straight, simple common sense that leftists can't seem to grasp. or, if leftists do grasp it, then they don't care (or worse, they cheer for the other side).
"This time, vote like your whole world depended on it."
That site is very very cool.
Thanks- an excellent website.
It's amazing how some of the Democrat and Republican issues have changed.
LBJ and Kennedy campaigned on lower taxes. And Goldwater ads kept talking about getting out of Vietnam.
Interesting isn't it? I point out to liberals about the positive effects of tax cuts and they deny it. When I bring up the Kennedy cuts, they lose what is left of their minds.
Reuben, Reuben, I've been thinkingAs a Taft supporter, I'm happy to learn that in electing the general, we really elceted Bob.
'Bout the general and his mob.
If you're voting for the general,
You really are electing Bob.
Let's vote for Adlai and John.
Probably the single most effective political ad ever run on TV.
In its effect it's certaintly up there with Willie Horton and Dukakis in a tank.
And it only ran, paid advertising, once.
bump for later
