Lame. Web. Video. It chops up Kerry's comments. Kerry's whole comment is more damning! Play the whole thing.
Too much production value....no audience. Only Freepers will watch this video, and anyone who doesn't already think Kerry is a traitor will be turned off by this as just edited propaganda for the GOP.
see my post 26---is this bad analysis?
(As an amateur political analyst, I'm always open to feedback) :)
Problem with the video is that dumb people hearing only the audio will agree with the lib comments they hear, especially the "after the elections" comment. Because of the lack of positive audio, I give it thumbs down for more than a quick run. I may be wrong: it is possible that tests have shown that the silent waving white flag has a much more powerful subliminal effect at least on those who ARE watching the ad and not just listening. I think the "Waving White Flag" imagery needs to be repeated in a better series of ads. That imagery may have a lasting effect...unless we liberate Iran now and the war mercifully ends by the Midterm elections (I don't like the idea that Bush may be prolonging this war by not fighting it more aggressively the way he should).
The "wolves" ad was the best! That one sent chills down my spine (and the spines of soccer moms) and might have been one of the clinchers that put Bush in the lead in July 2004, never to lose that lead.
We need more College Republicans ads as well. We need attractive young college seniors talking about liberal professors on camera in ads...mentioning names of tenured professors for the whole country to hear about...with the white flag imagery of course.
One more point: in 2006, it may actually be the best policy to let the Shiites slaughter the insurgents while our troops step back. We may want to give over some of the 20,000 insurgent prisoners to those who would be in a better position to execute them if necessary.
