Obama’s $25 million ad buy just the beginning, strategists say

The Obama campaign began the week by announcing a whopping $25 million ad buy in nine battleground states — and their top strategists told reporters that it is only the beginning.

“We’re not letting our foot off the pedal,” said campaign manager Jim Messina in a conference call with reporters Monday morning. “We have a very simple choice between going forward and going back.”

Messina, along with senior strategist David Axelrod, told reporters that the ad, called “Go,” is part of a larger campaign effort to convey all that President Obama has done since taking office in the midst of an economic crisis and two wars in January 2009.

Obama spent 7 Million Dollars in Indiana in 2008, telling voters that McCain was going to tax their healthcare, if elected.

Obamacare taxes their healthcare, starting in January, and almost NO ONE knows it.

Wasted money.

Why's that... because it's not necessary?

I have the feeling that folks in the battleground states will be going stark raving bananas over the quantity of adverts by mid-September, LOL.

“We have a very simple choice between going forward and going back.”

Well they certainly don’t want to look back at the last 3 years.

Yep. He’s got about a Billion dollar war-chest and more coming. This is just a drop in the bucket for Obama.

With a little luck, by end of campaign season even Democrats will be so disgusted with Obama ads that they’ll ditch him!

I agree 100% - it is wasted money. Obama is the most polarizing President in our nation's history - and what's more - he has been more visible than any other President in memory.

There is virtually no one left in America who has not made their mind up about him, one way or the other. The Democrats should be far more concerned about voter turnout than impressions left by negative advertising - and make no mistake, that is all they have planned - such ads are far more likely to backfire on Obama than to gain any new adherents.

Until We the People firmly decide to completely sideline the media and the money interests in our politics, this free republic cannot be turned around.

Andy, nearly everyone I talk too even many Democrats consider him an unmitigated disaster. They regret voting for him and they just see him in an even worse light as the election gets closer.

I've had Democrats (quietly) tell me that they think Obama's a disaster, too. But he's a disaster with a purpose, and that makes him dangerous.
