    Now this is a great ad from American Crossroads! Let’s hope we see a 30-second or 1-minute version of this playing in 2012 during the General Election Campaign. It uses Obama’s own words against him, where he recently decreed himself to be essentially the fourth best President in the history of the United States in terms of his accomplishments! There’s nothing like the ego of “The One.”
  • Video: Santorum’s first TV spot (What took him so long?)

    Earlier, I wrote about Rick Perry’s late push in Iowa, and how the momentum from a couple of very good debates could convince some conservative caucus-goers to return to his banner. That could also be said about Rick Santorum, whose performance in the last two debates this week looked more polished and presidential. His campaign has worked on a shoestring and relied more heavily on an incredible number of personal appearances in all 99 counties in the state. Santorum hits the airwaves today in Iowa with his first ad, an introductory spot that uses supporting words from some heavy conservative...
  • Newt Gingrich: Selling Access (Ron Paul video attack)

    The Ron Paul 2012 Presidential campaign announced today the release of its latest ad, 'Selling Access', another two-minute web video aimed at former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, calling him out as a corrupt Washington insider who got rich through influence-peddling. The video, which the campaign plans to promote prominently on conservative web sites, includes a clip of Gingrich calling himself an 'insider' and another in which the former Speaker brags about getting paid $60,000-a-speech. The video comes after the viral success of Paul's earlier web ad, 'Serial Hypocrisy', which criticizes Gingrich for many of the same issues.
  • Video: Holiday commercial sparks warm, fuzzy feelings about — not puppies — guns

    Listen to this advertisement and you’ll reasonably assume that what’s for sale is something forlorn, lonely, cute and cuddly … a stray puppy, perhaps. “They’ve been mistreated and misunderstood for generations,” the ad begins. “Abusive owners have done severe damage and given these beautiful creatures a bad reputation.” That’s how it’s supposed to sound. The owner of PRK Arms in Fresno, Calif., brainstormed this brilliant way to sell guns — and, so far, it’s worked. According to a news report from Fresno’s CBS 47 news, the gun shop has seen more business this holiday season than ever before. Among the...

    On Black Friday, several stores of outdoor sports outfitter Cabela's gave away guns. And have you heard the one about the gun club offering photos with Santa and ammo? Guns, always popular in the US, have become even more so in a slumping, anxious economy. No wonder, as a new report exposes, a New York City-based capital management form has been buying up as many gun brands as it can get its hands on. The gun-loving conglomerate, Freedom Group, now sells more than 1.2 million guns a year, notching $40 billion in yearly revenue. (That's more than Coca-Cola, by the...

    Texas Governor and GOP presidential contender Rick Perry is trying to turn his poor performances in recent debates into an asset with a new campaign ad in Iowa. The money line: "If you're looking for a slick politician or a guy with great teleprompter skills, we already have that and he's destroying our economy. I'm a doer not a talker." With that blistering yet incredibly accurate depiction of President Barack Obama, Mr. Perry may have found the perfect way to redeem himself with the party's first voters.

    The Blaze has covered several instances of anti-Semitism emanating from the Occupy Wall St. movement (despite the organizers’ attempts to trivialize it). And now, the group over at Whyoccupy.com has posted a powerful new web ad from the Emergency Committee for Israel, wondering why, despite the anti-Semitism, so many liberal politicians have come out in support of the movement. “Why are our leaders turning a blind eye to anti-Semitic, anti-Israel attacks?” it asks:

    Politics PA ^ | 10-12-11 | Staff
    In the spot, titled “Agree,” Santorum highlights all of the areas where he and his fellow GOP candidates don’t arrive at a consensus. He notes his disagreement with former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney on “government run Romneycare.” He calls Texas Governor Rick Perry “dead wrong” for supporting in-state tuition rates for illegal immigrants. Santorum also vehemently opposes the Wall Street bailouts, which former Godfather’s Pizza CEO Herman Cain supported. However, the take away message of the ad is that Santorum and his fellow GOP contenders do agree on perhaps the most important issue: defeating Barack Obama in 2012. “Barack Obama...

    The Vatican has accused the BBC of an ‘act of enormous foolishness’ for dumping the terms BC and AD in case they cause offence to non-Christians. The Roman Catholic Church also severely criticised the ‘senseless hypocrisy’ of Britain’s public service broadcaster for using a false respect for other religions to purge Christianity from Western culture. ‘It is by now very clear that respect for other religions is only an excuse, because those who wish to erase every trace of Christianity from Western culture are only a few secular westerners,’ said a front page editorial in L’Osservatore Romano, the Vatican’s official...

    Remember that clever little Ford ad that showed an actual buyer being led into a surprise news conference and answering impromptu questions? You know, the one where the buyer says, “I wasn’t going to buy another car that was bailed out by the government. I was going to buy from a manufacturer that’s standing on their own: win, lose, or draw. That’s what America is about is taking the chance to succeed and understanding when you fail that you gotta’ pick yourself up and go back to work.”
  • BBC drops Anno Domini and Before Christ to avoid offending non-Christians

    UK Telegraph ^ | September 25 2011 | Claire Duffin
    The BBC has been accused of bowing to political correctness after it emerged that it was discouraging the use of the terms BC and AD for fear of offending non-Christians. The Corporation's religion website states that it opts for the "religiously neutral" Common Era and Before Common Era, rather than Anno Domini (the year of Our Lord) and Before Christ. It goes on: "As the BBC is committed to impartiality it is appropriate that we use terms that do not offend or alienate non-Christians." But critics said the changes were meaningless because, just like AD and BC, the alternative terms...
  • Rick Perry's 'President Zero' apocalypse ad (alarmist and w/ "footage of horses!")

    Washington Post ^ | September 22, 2011 | Alexandra Petri
    [snip] The ad scares me. It's actually the “2012” trailer, but without the waves and wolves because Perry does not believe in man-made global warming. This would make a great summer blockbuster. I can see sequel potential, and there’s even Shia LaBoeuf-level acting. But the message is startling. Is Perry's main selling point really, “It's the Apocalypse, and I am the Only Hope For America?” Because, frankly, this is not what I was hoping for from my presidential candidates. “Also, here is some footage of horses!” Zero Change and Zero Jobs. Thank heavens REAL GOLD-FONT ALL-CAPS AMERICAN Rick Perry is...

    Rick Perry's campaign just responded to the attack ad that a pro-Michele Bachmann super PAC unveiled last night, which it is airing in South Carolina, and which hits him on his spending record as Texas governor: “Gov. Perry is a proven fiscal conservative, having cut taxes, signed six balanced budgets, and led Texas to become America’s top job-creating state,” said Ray Sullivan, RickPerry.org’s communications director. “Congresswoman Bachmann’s front-group ad is patently and provably false. Unlike Washington, the Texas budget is balanced, does not run deficits and limits spending, even as Texas added jobs and population in big numbers.”
  • How to Get Youth to Vote Republican

    07/22/2011 5:43:35 PM PDT · by Bleh1236 · 18 replies
    And I think I have a way to attract the youth vote. It could be an ad like this. Air it on Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, etc.: I don't get why the youth would vote Democrat considering the direction of the country under Democrats. I have an idea. Ads like these should be on Nickelodeon/Cartoon Network. Kids love junk food, so we can remind them that Nanny-State Democrats want to take it away[we could also do an ad against liberal lawyers suing McDonalds]. We could also do a great ad directed at children for the national debt. I think this is...

The falsified ad led the victim to receive numerous phone calls, text messages and home visits from male strangers, frightening her and making her concerned about her children's safety, according to a police report.

Jane Harman's (D-Calif.) recent retirement, via the liberal blog TPM: The election pits Los Angeles Councilwoman Janice Hahn (D) against businessman Craig Huey, a tea party Republican who's second place finish in one of California's first jungle primaries came as a surprise to most.
