Wow - that’s going to cost some big bucks. Obama’s taking out loans - can’t match him.

I guess this might have something to do with why Romney hasn't been spending as wildly as he could have been. He was saving up for this as well as a final blitz of normal length ads.

Whoever is running the Romney SuperPAC should stop wasting money in Maine. Why are they running ads in Maine??

It will be interesting to see what in which states the infomercial is broadcast.

That will be an indication of what states the Romney campaign considers "in reach", and which are "safe".

The choices may be surprising.

Maine allots their electoral votes by congressional district. Romney could win one district and get one electoral vote out of Maine. Also there is a competitive Senate race going on up there to replace Snowe. But mainly it’s because of that one vote.

A little off subject but I was just listening to Neil Cavuto interviewing Caddell(sp?)just a few minutes ago and he was saying IF Obumbler doesn’t get a substantial bump by the beginning of next wk he is TOAST! Pray and keep praying that God will keep this evil man out of our WH and under the 50% radar!!

Don’t have the link but Romney polled a lead in one of the Congressional Districts in Maine. So he is fighting for that 1 electoral vote.

An introduction by Kelsey Grammer, a set by Kid Rock, John Ondrasik and Ted Nugent, a monologue by Clint Eastwood, some Scott Baio thoughts, and end with Stacey Dash in a bikini and watch ratings soar. ;-)

He can presumably run them affordably in smaller markets or on smaller stations, and most viewers will be on the Internet.

Ross Perot’s informercials were very effective. Plus, he got an advertising award! But no electoral votes.

Who watches 30 second commercials? Most of America DVRs their television content and skips right over the commercials. Now a 30-minute infomercial with some real meat (as opposed to fluff) will probably get a lot of exposure, especially if it is well-produced and informative. People could DVR it and watch it at their leisure like a regular television show.

Hopefully Romney will make this available on YouTube and stream it on demand with outfits like Netflix, Roku, Hulu, etc., so people in non-battleground states can access the content as well.

Yes, i read and saw the poll stated, Romney had a 5 point lead in the district, The GOP there got very clever and when the districts in Maine got redistricted, 2 big dem townships were removed from it and 2 big GOP ones put in their place.

It’s too bad they have to have 30 minute commericals to educate people but it is the direct result of the biased and untruthful media we have in the USA.

To be fair, Ross Perot quit and then came back. By then he had lost credibility, so to say that the infomercials weren’t effective in getting EVs may not be accurate. We will never know.

Until the debates, where I had no choice, I have studiously avoided listening to that one’s voice for over 4 years.

If he was on the bedroom TV, hubby knew to switch channels NOW when I entered the room.

He literally physically made me sick.

That Godforsaken Dish barrage would have been the tortures of the damned, if I’d not bugged out ASAP while channel surfing.

I hope they run the Romney ad on DirecTV.

[a service which excels beyond Dish’s wildest dreams]

Maine splits their electoral votes: 1 for the winner of each Congressional district, and 2 for the winner of the entire state.

If Romney can win one district, he gets at least one electoral vote.

Everyone has been wondering when Mitt was going to start spending his money, now we know.

His strategy has been to let The Disaster spend all his money spewing his venomous lies, then step in late in the game and systematically swat all of them out of the park.

The five or so hours of free tv, which the debates are, showed the ignorant that he is no threat to them and is infinitely more qualified and presidential than The Disaster. This neuters the message which has to be used against Romney (”he is a devil”) and it is too late to concoct another theme.

Romney has run a brilliant, professional campaign and avoided missteps in a remarkable manner. It is almost as if he has moles within The Disaster’s campaign.

I wish they would consider 10 minute infomercials and they would carpet them- even if you were going to change the channel you might get a bite of something. 1/2 hour just does not seem like the right way to go to me. The concept is terrific - I just think better use of the cash to go with the shorter ones...
