I am so fed up with the Obama campaign ads during the Olympics. I hope the rest of the country is as fed up as I am!
Im tired of all the political ads. Im on the I4 corridor in Fl. They are non stop and bs.
I wouldn’t know. I don’t watch the Olympics. Not when the Dbacks are sweeping the Dodgers. Go Snakes!!!
Sorry, I had my fill of this clown since early 2010, if not earlier. The next 97 days will drag!
They are all poll-tested to appeal to the large mass of imbeciles who get their brains in TV commercials and who are pivotal in deciding national elections.
I just wrote a check to mitt romney.
i was disgusted looking at his mug. He pushed me over the edge!
desperate times call for desperate measures.
The fun part is that he’s associating his ‘brand’ with the most reviled Olympics coverage in US history (see: “#nbcfail”). So it’s going to build a brand identity of “Obama = Fail”.
I'd be asking why Romney is letting Obama have this stage uncontested? Or maybe I'm just missing Romney's ads?
Is NBC charging him anything for the spots?
Here in Ohio, I’m seeing equal amounts of Romney ads as Obamas. Its tit for tat.
Good analysis of political advertisements, why hundreds of millions are spent on swaying these couch potatoes
In southern Colorado, there are as many Romney commercials as Odumbo. I’m tired of both of them and it’s only August!
I’m sick of the Obama ads, of course, and some at least must be national buys because we are seeing some in NJ (not a swing state, sadly!).
But I am sick of ALL the ads and also all the BS so we’re recording them so we can power-through the crap.
Tonight hubby & I both fell asleep anyway, but at least I saw some stuff!
I am tired of Obama period! Time for him to resign!
You’re watching NBC voluntarilly, and whining?
Read a book.
DVR is your friend! You just fast-forward through those parts. :-}
Not to mention the contrived/choreographed shticks of the extremely accessible and ‘common’ Michelle Obama which are designed to endear her and her husband to the American public, obviously.
They have to he national! No way would he waste money on these ads in CA.
“No way would he waste money on these ads in CA.”
I’m sorry to say the one I saw tonight was pretty good.
I mean, it was smarmy BS, but I thought it would have appeal to those mushy-middle-muddlers. Especially if they didn’t actually LISTEN to THE WORDS, and my experience is that very few people actually LISTEN to THE WORDS.
My understanding is that Romney can’t spend “General Election” money until he is the actual, official, legal, etc. nominee. And, evidently for whatever reason(s) Obama is already the actual, etc. Dem. nominee.
Which now makes me a tad confused, since evidently Bill Clinton is going to “nominate” Obama for president at their convention. And Obama did have primary opponents, some of whom did rather amazingly well.
But, never mind all that.
Even if Campaign Romney can’t respond, I wish some Super PAC would get some spots up, although maybe they are locally.
I really, really, really, really, really, eleventy, a thousand, a million, a billion, a trillion, infinity, double infinity, DREAD the thought of that communist, chi-town hack getting re-elected.
Who could ever get enough of Dear Leader?
We need mandatory 4 hr daily all network broadcasts. Scarcely enough to stave off the depression from hopenosis withdrawals.
Why in the world would bammy spend his precious campaign dollars in CA?
Shhh. It's a secret.
CA is really a swing state.
obama PACs running negative ads in between inspiring Olympic events is so jarring it is almost sure to turn off all but his rabid supporters (are they evcn watching the Olympics except to cheer against the US?)
blech. True colors.
I was wondering why Moochelle Obama was @ the Olympics watching basketball and Barack hasen’t. London is too full of testosterone for Barack.
My wife watches the Olympics and she is quite apolitical. When ever Obama comes on the tube she hits the mute button and then forgets that it’s on mute for the next hour or so. She says the commentators talk to much and it distracts from the events.
On the other hand, I hope that his over-saturation and spending his money like... Well only as Obama can, like a fire hose spraying out hundred dollar bills, will also turn off voters and potential voters.
Still summer and folks are pretty much still tuned out in regards to politics. Wait until September.
The olympics suck. Obama sucks. Who cares. I am on vacation and the water is warm and the sun is hot.
Has anyone, particulrly the MSM, mentioned that Obama spent his early political capital and “Nobel peace prize” on getting the Olympics in Chicago?
Oh wait, reality sets in, despite Obama’s personal lobbying, it went to Brazil. Another BO failure. Which is fine, Brazil seems like a nice place I’m sure they’ll do great.
But really, could you ignore a stark contrast like Romney saved the US Olympics while BO couldn’t even get an invite? I guess you could if you’re the MSM and you ignore that story.
Not the right place for the poser in Chief to spew his lies—I like the way he talks about ‘Trickle Down’ economics and “We tried it and it didn’t work” Is he forgetful? Reagan tried it and we had years of boom times! It did work and only failed when the Democrats took a monkey wrench to it with forced bad loans. Even Clinton never mocked the Capitalist system like this fool.
Beats me if he is or isn’t, I DVR every single hour of every days events, and then I skip all the commentary and commercials, and very soon I am buying the Dishnetwork Hopper that will skip all the commercials automatically.
How about his plan involves “paying down our debt”?
In Az I haven’t seen any Romney ads. Maybe they are on here and I am not tuned in at that time. Obama spewing hate IS jarring in the midst of the International sports competition.
It’s a stupid ad with a nonsensical argument thay has a very expensive price tag. Keep it up, Barry!
