Obama running ads in California

Posted on 10/16/2012 11:12:44 AM PDT by deek69

The last two days while watching Fox in the evening, I have seen an ad for Obama. The ad has run a number of times. It basically say Romney has shipped all the jobs to china. Im trying to figure out why is Obama spending money in California?

Must be a national ad. We’re getting some of those in Texas too.

According to Fox, zeros lead is narrowing.

Why? It doesn’t make sense! California is a Deep Blue State.

Obama will carry it by more 10+ points. Its never been a swing state and Romney hasn’t even bothered running commercials in the state’s expensive media markets.

May be a national buy that has to be carried in CA.

Or for the Machiavellian mindset...he wants to win big in CA to pump up the “real” vote as opposed t the Electoral Vote.

Bam-Bam is wasting his money.

California is currently shipping all of its jobs out to the other 56 states.

Zero will win California and lose the election. This is a popular vote play. Best indication yet the game is over and the campaign is in damage control.

He’d carry it in his sleep! That’s why it doesn’t make it a lick of sense.

You’d want to run those commercials in FL, VA, OH and PA - states where a few thousand votes can make all the difference between victory and defeat.

Are these on Fox “local” stations or the Fox network? If it is network, then it is a “national” commercial...if it is on your local news, then he is indeed in trouble.

(I’ve known a few broadcast sales people.)

California is a four letter word...thanks to Biden!

B-R-O-K-E!

Maybe California sees Barak, at least partly, at fault, or at least makes their bad fiscal situation even worse (price of gasoline) than their governor has done.

If Barry’s ads are in high rotation in ILL-ANNOY, it will mean the white flag has been hoisted (unless ‘white flag’ is a dog-whistle term for being rassiss).

10+? In 2008 Obama won by 24 points. He will win by at least 20 this time around.

He probably doesn’t think he’s going to lose California, but seeing a significant narrowing there would serve to buttress significant movement elsewhere.

It’s an act of desperation brought on my his softening numbers across the must win states. He can’t let it be seen that he’s lost massive ground even in California.

Part of a national ad buy. Obummer will not lose CA. However, if he drives up the number of people in CA or TX who say they are voting for him, then guess what? Obama’s poll numbers go up and it appears that he is the come-back kid and suddenly has momentum.

California is a safe 50+ electoral votes for him. However, Obama’s handlers know that in a tight race, the implications of a popular vote win coupled with a contestable few electoral votes, say in Ohio, do wonders for a court and public sentiment challenge.

He is, rightly so, worried that his popular vote win in California won’t be as perfunctory as his electoral vote win. He’s in TROUBLE, and he knows it (well, his handlers anyway).

We are seeing obama ads on the local Santa Barbara, stations.
The Newspress published a story about a poll that had obama going from 25 points ahead to 9 points.
Maybe he is panicking.

He's running the same ads here in Michigan. Personally I think Romney could do himself a small favor by making a quick appearance at the playoffs here in Detroit.

The popular vote play makes sense. ala Gore crying to the courts. Though I think this might make some sense.

“Among Independents, Obama led by 14 in September, but now trails by 9 in October, a 23-point right turn among the most coveted voters.”

Do you think Obama could afford a national news story that CA may be coming into play? No. So if those numbers are accurate, he must prevent that story from emerging. It would be a disasterous perception.

We saw one poll lately that says he is up only 8% in Cali.

The coming tsunami will be reflected in Cali.

California, like most of the big Blue states, sends more money to the feds than it gets back. Illinois, another state on the spiral down financially, also keeps cutting off its nose to spite its face by electing RATs. The Disaster did send us 180 million for a prison we can’t run and the feds don’t need. He can’t find a few millions to buy some actual security in Libya but he can help his ole buddy Gov. Quinn.

No, this is just a smallish local paper.
They have endorsed Romney and every Republican down the ticket, their enforcement was short and sweet - we can’t afford another four years of obama.

I live in SoCal and have been telling people for weeks on this forum that I have seen Non stop Obama Ads..they have tapered off a little bit but yes I am seeing them sprout up again..was watching the USA Network last night and saw an Obama Ad, had to change the channel because the sound of his voice makes me ill..it was the same Obama Ad I have been seeing for a while now, starting with “I’m Barack Obama and I approve this message.” From the polls I have seen here locally, Obama is still up..but Romney has a HUGE lead amongst Independents in this state..but unfortunately because San Francisco and LA is so liberal it won’t matter..but it did put a smile on my face on Sunday being in Encino I saw my very first Romney sticker on someone’s car..it was nice to see

Exactly. The NY Times just had a story on how Romney’s team was paying up to four times as much for ads and missing out on national savings, presumably to benefit Stewart Stevens and his ad buyer.

Yes it’s all about money. CA is a major source of campaign donations, and it could be that Obama is running out of money. So he spends money running ads in the hope that they’ll help generate more revenue than what they cost.

I guess rich people think they already think they pay enough in taxes. Can you imagine the conversations upper-middle and upper income level people are having with their accountants?

10+? In 2008 Obama won by 24 points. He will win by at least 20 this time around.

While he'll certainly carry San Fran, LA, and Sacramento by huge margins, judging by local comments, he's lost a lot of his 2008 support outside of the metro areas.

Obama has a lot of big money donors in California.
He has to show them what their money is doing.

Obama is also running ads in Connecticut, I suspect for the same reason. There are no Romney ads in Connecticut.

According to Fox, zeros lead is narrowing.

Don't let them kid you. Romney could have a 20% point lead and they would claim it's too close to call. WHY?

The BIGGER the audience numbers they can build the MORE they charge for those many, many commercial breaks.

Like a well staged WWE event... "keep the show going and build to a climax."

Like him or not, Rupert Murdoch is in business to make MONEY not friends.

Hum. Santa Barbara, gives the impression it is all rich people, its not.
My guess everyone is talking to anyone who will listen about their taxes.
I do get your point though. I guess we could say the weather makes us rich, that however doesn’t translate to paying the grocery bill. ;-)
Fortunately my husband has a good job (at 36 years now) he loves, I gave up looking about two years ago after looking for two (was laid off), and we just cut corners (glad the beach is free).
