    When yesterday we showed Donald Trump's first long overdue Hillary Clinton attack ad (which starred Jihadi John, a laughing Putin, and a barking Hillary) which had a simple message "we don't need to be a punchline", we predicted that it would "resonate." It did, and within hours had accumulated several hundreds thousands views. Many wondered how long until Hillary's response. They didn't habe long to wait - earlier today, Priorities USA, a pro-Clinton SuperPAC, on Thursday came out with its own attack ad mocking Trump. Hillary's attack ad is shown here.The oddly unimaginative, almost carbon-copy clip uses the same footage...

    It's no easy task figuring out which candidate or groups are behind the attack ads. WESH 2's Greg Fox looked into all of them and found out whose agenda you are really seeing. . . the founder of "Our Principles PAC" is a former campaign manager for 2012 GOP nominee, Mitt Romney, and one staffer is a former communications boss for Trump's nemesis, Jeb Bush.
  • Cruz for President Campaign Asks Radio Stations to Pull False Attack Ads Running in Iowa

    Ad Makes Bogus Claim About Cruz Support for Oil SubsidiesHOUSTON, Texas - The Cruz for President Campaign today sent a letter to Iowa radio stations requesting they stop running a false ad placed by America's Renewable Future, a lobbyist group that wants to keep taxpayer subsidies going to the ethanol industry.The ad falsely claims, "Politicians like Ted Cruz support subsidies for Big Oil, but want to end support for ethanol.""It is blatantly false to suggest that Sen. Cruz wants to end the Renewable Fuel Standard while maintaining subsidies for oil," Cruz spokesman Rick Tyler said. "Cruz has repeatedly stated that...

    Well, that didn't take long. If there are two guys in the GOP field who really don’t seem to care for each other, it’s Jeb Bush and Donald Trump. Trump labelled Bush a “low energy” person who “doesn’t really want to be doing what he’s doing” and Bush has referred to Trump as a “clown,” a “buffoon,” and an “@$$hole.” Given the animosity between them, it’s probably not surprising that the last 24 hours has seen the launch of two attack ads - one from each side. First up, Trump dings Bush on his one of his more idiotic pro-illegal...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama tried Monday to distance himself from an advertisement run by a supportive outside group suggesting there was a link between the death of a laid-off steelworker's wife and Republican Mitt Romney's former company. But Obama said he intends to keep raising sharp contrasts between himself and the GOP challenger. "I don't think that Governor Romney was somehow responsible for the death," he said.

    Wall Street Journal ^ | August 1, 2012 | KARL ROVE
    Three months and $131 million in spending haven't moved the president's poll numbers. 'If you've got a business—you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen." Despite President Obama's effort to walk back these remarks, the damage they've caused to him remains. And that's because what he said in Roanoke, Va., on July 13 came across as a true expression of his worldview. The president's vivid words did not come out of nowhere. While pushing for higher taxes on upper-income people, Mr. Obama often refers to the wealthy as "fortunate" (such as at a Democratic National Committee event last September)...

    Hotair ^ | 07/30/2012 | Ed Morrissey
    Barack Obama's campaign has spent tens of millions of dollars attempting to paint Mitt Romney as an unsavory businessman, a clueless tycoon, and even accused him at one point of being a "felon." Team Obama needed to make Romney toxic early, while it had a large advantage in primary-campaign cash, in order to avoid having to defend Obama's economic record. So how did that strategy work out? After three solid months, a new poll by The Hill shows Romney holding a narrow edge on character issues over the incumbent President: Mitt Romney holds thin advantages over President Obama on leadership,...
  • The Obama M.O.: Take, Spend And Fail

    After watching the national debt skyrocket under President Barack Obama, it's not surprising that his campaign is operating in a similar fashion. Reports that Team Obama raised less than they spent in June is the kind of economics we've come to expect from this president and his cronies. We've also come to expect that his obscenely expensive ideas, always financed with other people's money, always fail miserably. To date, Mr. Obama's re-election campaign has spent $107 million on television ads, the vast majority of which attack presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney's business record. The return on that investment? Another Obama...

    The official youth group of the Archdiocese of Salzburg has attempted to grapple with "Youth and Sexuality" in their newspaper -- There aren't any micro-nutrients of Catholic teaching you can find -- A critical analysis. [Editor] Mark Dayton tries to put a positive spin on a miscalculation by his staffers that made the Democrats look bad, and desperate. Dayton has a safe lead against his opponent, and so it comes to him to defuse the controversy being raised about the indisputable attack on the Catholic Church, which as many now suppose, is retaliation against Archbishop Nienstedt's defense of Marriage DVD...

    It's such a respectable name for an outfit dedicated to character assassination: Accountability for Colorado. With such respectable men and women behind the respectable front, too. They include two of Colorado's richest citizens, Tim Gill and Pat Stryker, as well as the Colorado Education Association, the AFL-CIO and the corporate leadership of Xcel Energy and Comcast. Gill and Stryker each gave the independent political committee $75,000 in recent months — pocket change for them, perhaps, but serious political money — while the CEA chipped in $105,000, the AFL-CIO $50,000, and Xcel and Comcast 10 grand each. For what purpose? In...

    The American Thinker ^ | January 16, 2010 | Rick Moran
    The charge against Scott Brown made above is a follow up to the one the Democrats in Massachusetts are making today in a mailer: "1736 WOMEN WERE RAPED IN MASSACHUSETTS IN 2008. SCOTT BROWN WANTS HOSPITALS TO TURN THEM ALL AWAY." The justification for this outrageously exaggerated, and deliberately falsified charge is that Brown voted for a provision that would allow hospital workers not to inform rape victims of the availability of the "Morning After" pill if their religious convictions prevented them from doing so. Not exactly - or even remotely similar to - "turning away" rape victims from hospitals...
  • Candidates Call End to Truce With Attack Ads

    Candidates Call End to Truce With Attack Ads by Friday, September 12, 2008 Barack Obama’s campaign, declaring “today is the first day of the rest of the campaign,” unleashed a new ad mocking John McCain as computer illiterate Friday in a fresh attempt to shake his rival’s sudden lead in the polls. The ad, coupled with one from the McCain campaign accusing Obama of being “disrespectful” toward his running mate, effectively ended the one-day truce on Sept. 11 and signaled the candidates would spend the next 53 days on the offensive. The Obama ad blatantly mocks his 72-year-old rival...

    Not WRIGHT for America ^ | 7/27/08 | Tim Brugger
    Even the liberal media have picked up on the fact that McCain seems to have held steady or even improved his poll standing in the last week or so (though Gallup has Obama with a 49-40 lead today it appears to be an outlier). This is especially impressive given Obama's massive spending and his overseas trip, which appeared to be a big success for Obama, as even The Washington Times admits. Obama did look presidential, which may also help him put to rest lingering doubts that some voters harbor. So why hasn't Obama's spending and overseas trip produced a bounce...

    The Presidential candidates have mostly avoided negative attack ads, but pundits say the campaigns could go "Swift Boat" at any time In mid-February, Senator Hillary Clinton's (D-N.Y.) campaign launched what political pundits widely described as its first negative attack ad against Senator Barack Obama (D-Ill.). The TV spot, which ran in Wisconsin in the days leading up to Obama's 17-percentage-point win in the Feb. 20 primary, needled him for choosing not to debate Clinton in the Badger State because he would "prefer to give speeches than have to answer questions." The ad also contended that Obama's proposed health-care plan would...

    Mike Huckabee pulled a move this afternoon that was too cute by half: he called a press conference to announce he was pulling a negative anti-Romney campaign ad, and then showed the ad to the assembled press -- obviously hoping he would get mileage out of the ad while taking credit for being a "nice guy." As I mentioned in a comment at Holy Coast earlier today, I was curious about a Jonathan Martin article posted yesterday at Politico which include the news that blogger Joe Carter has left the Huckabee campaign. Carter joined the campaign to much fanfare just...

    Oh, let's just call it comparative advertising, shall we? The Iowa caucuses start in less than a week, and at least one Republican candidate has decided to let it all hang out. Mitt Romney released a negative ad against John McCain earlier for New Hampshire, and now he's got one in rotation in Iowa against Mike Huckabee that has the Arkansas governor seeing more red than a Christmas sweater: Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney launched a fresh attack Friday on rival Mike Huckabee, raising the stakes in the tense two-person contest in Iowa that could prove critical to both candidates'...

    Defining the issues remains a cut above slandering opponent - With the hue and cry about mudslinging and attack ads in the Democratic race for governor between state Controller Steve Westly and Treasurer Phil Angelides, one battle-scarred political veteran is sitting back and marveling at the fray. Former Democratic state Sen. David Roberti, watching the tone of the current primary campaign, said his political career -- including 14 years as state Senate leader -- ended after he lost a race that featured "the meanest ad ever run in contemporary politics'' during his 1994 Democratic primary for state treasurer against Angelides....

    Back in 2004 I was planning on re-dubbing the audio of a certain Liberal attack ad to make it critical of their record in government. In the process of creating that ad, I discovered it contained a subliminal image. The media attention this got resulted in the ad quickly and quietly being taken off the air, so I didn't see any point in continuing with my original project . Durring the 2005-2006 campaign, I went back and reviewed the ads used by the Liberals in 2004, and realized that it would be even easier to point that ad back...
