Wonder what you would find if you frisked President Obama’s plans for 2012?

Answer: He’s running for re-election! I know, shocking right?

Don’t be confused folks. The video posted above is actually President Obama’s first political advertisement. Hot Air reports:

Barack Obama is running for President in 2012, but he may be the last person we’ll actually see on this campaign.  The Obama 2012 team released its first web ad this morning, but other than a couple of long-distance clips, Obama himself is nowhere to be seen.  Equally absent — any hint of issues or claims of accomplishments.

How much trouble does O-12 face? They couldn’t even find enough enthusiastic people to fill out a commercial. In 2008, it was all about the passion, and yet only one person even mentions this, and only to say that Obama’s too busy to work that magic again. One of the last voices we hear in the ad comes from a North Carolina man who admits that he doesn’t agree with Obama on “everything,” but that he “respects” Obama. Yes, that’s the kind of momentum one longs to see at the start of a presidential campaign.

The advertisement is so boring that some people are even comparing it to a DeVry University ad. Haha.

On the Republican side of things, former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty released a rebuttal to President Obama’s campaign ad. Check it out below:

Now that’s more like it!

Also, the Republican National Committee launched their own ad along with a new landing page: HopeIsntHiring.com. In all honesty, the RNC needs to stay away from the gentlemen who did the narrating on that one, because he doesn’t fit the intensity of an attack ad.

Let the election season begin!

Wonder what you would find if you frisked this Pepsi Max commercial that aired during the Super Bowl?

Answer: Apparently, it is outrageous for a African-American male to look at a Caucasian female.

At least that is what US Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) seems to think. The Hill reports:

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) took to the House floor Tuesday night to criticize what she called a “demeaning” Pepsi ad that aired during the Super Bowl.

Jackson Lee said it was ridiculous for the soft drink maker to air the advertisement during African-American history month.

“In this month of African-American history where we’re trying to celebrate what is good and great, it certainly seems ridiculous that Pepsi would utilize this kind of humor,” she said. “It was not humorous. It was demeaning — an African-American woman throwing something at an African-American male and winding up hitting a Caucasian woman.”

[…]

“I think that we can come together in a much better way, sell Pepsi, and as well talk about good nutrition,” she said. “But, frankly, I consider this insulting, and so did many other women of all colors.”

Unfortunately, this woman is being serious.

I’m sure Pepsi will cast commercials with only black people or only white people next time. After all, we wouldn’t want to offend Rep. Jackson Lee by mixing it up. What a joke.

Please, get a sense of humor.

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the the college  demographic?

Answer: Whether or not they realize it, President Obama has epically let them down.

Props to the College Republican National Committee for this brand new ad.

Only a misinformed college student could be happy with all the so-called “improvements” President Obama has made within the young demographic that showed up to the polls in order to get him elected. After all, his liberal agenda might end affordable health-care at universities, increase their premiums, and gave us an unemployment rate hovering around 20% for young adults . Unfortunately, President Obama wasn’t the “cool” centrist they thought he would be.

It’s time for college students to wake up and recover from their Obamamania Syndrome. This ad, is step one.

In 2008, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, on behalf of Kay Hagan (D-NC), released this winning television advertisement that attacked former U.S. Senator Elizabeth Dole’s record in Congress:

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the latest political advertisement from the Richard Burr (R-NC) campaign?

Answer: Payback can be a pain the you-know-what.

Burr for Senate: […] the Richard Burr Committee released its second television ad of the General Election titled “Front Porch.” The ad highlights how the disastrous economic policies of this Administration and its allies have failed to address the problems facing every day Americans:

Ahh yes! Two years has passed and the famous “Hope-and-Change” era is finally disappearing. Apparently that Obamamania Syndrome has also disappeared from our two old-timers that made the Kay Hagan “Rocking Chairs” ad such a success.

Great ad! It does a good job reflecting the strong feeling of voter’s remorse that has been sweeping the country. The only “downside” of the advertisement is where it was filmed. According to News Observer.com, “The anti-Dole ad was filmed at the Bynum General Store in Chatham County. The new ad was shot at a private residence in Davie County.” If you notice, the convenience store in the anti-Dole ad is an older, worn down building while the location in the Richard Burr ad reflects more of an upscale household. Since the Burr campaign is stressing the Democrats’ disastrous economic policies, they should have put the same two gentlemen in a location that wasn’t as “upscale”. My suggestion/quick-fix: Throw a Foreclosed sign in the front yard and make it visible to the viewer.

Overall, props to US Sen. Richard Burr and his campaign!

Mike Bouchard.

Wonder what you would find if you frisked Michigan’s Republican Primary for Governor?

Answer: Mike Bouchard’s momentum is building with one week to go!

Today, Oakland County Sheriff Mike Bouchard – Republican candidate for governor – released his latest political television commercial titled, “It’s Time” after some good news:

With $846K left in the bank, Bouchard enters the final stretch with more cash than anyone else on either side, edging out businessman Rick Snyder (R) by more than $34K.

[…]

That money assures Bouchard will be able to compete on-air with the other GOPers during the closing weeks at a level he has not done throughout the campaign. He’s taken a risk by running the farthest to the right in the field, territory occupied by Cox prior to the right-to-work announcement.

However, with money now at his side and GOP voters likely starting to tune in, watch for Bouchard to make his run away from also-ran status to become a serious contender.

Mike Bouchard’s latest television commercial references an old advertisement from his 2006 U.S. Senate campaign where he plays the “overly protective” father while his daughter is on a date. This time around, Bouchard is not worried about his daughter dating anymore… He’s worried about her future and keeping his family in Michigan. In my opinion, this latest political commercial is a great move by his campaign to help build his already growing momentum with less than a week to go.

'What Took So Long?'

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the latest political advertisement by the Republican National Committee?

Answer: They want to know what took so long Mr. President!

FOUR!

Since I have a Conservative ideology, this advertisement connected with me, but Allahpundit – from Hot Air – points out one major flaw:

A snappy montage illustrating Obama’s “bloodless quality” and “emotional detachment” from the spill, as rabidly right-wing NYT columnist Maureen Dowd put it this morning. Sad to say, I don’t think this meme’s going to gain traction, not because The One’s not guilty of callousness but because media-fueled public perceptions about how much Democrats care will immunize him somewhat. Bush’s golfing was Big News because it fit the “out of touch” icy-hearted Republican stereotype; Obama, by contrast, gets to sway along to the end of “Hey Jude” with nary a peep uttered in the press because they know that, between those “na na na nas,” he’s aching for the gulf’s shrimping industry. Ah well.

Either way, the advertisement does a good job illustrating the utter disconnect President Obama has with the disaster occurring down in the Gulf of Mexico. In the end, this oil spill will eventually damage the President Obama’s reputation – if it hasn’t already – and Allahpundit points that out:

The less Change-y he seems, the more trouble he’s in, and needless to say, slow federal responses to catastrophes off the coast of New Orleans are pretty much the antithesis of Change.

How many days until the 2012 election?

Mike Bouchard for Michigan.

Wonder what you would find if you frisked your local television commercials after Tuesday (June 8, 2010)?

Answer: You might see Republican Gubernatorial candidate Mike Bouchard’s latest political advertisement!

Bouchard for Governor reports:

Mike Bouchard, Republican candidate for governor, launches his 2nd gubernatorial ad summing up Michigan’s frustration with the Granholm administration and the state’s record high unemployment rate.

[…]

“At a time when Michigan is crying out for leadership, the Governor has turned her back on our state,” said Bouchard. “We lead the nation in unemployment and the status quo behavior in Lansing is unacceptable. Families are struggling to hold on to their homes as others on the block lose their grip on the American Dream. As those losses continue to pile up, parents across the state, including my wife and I, are scared our children will be forced to leave Michigan to find jobs and opportunity.

“Each of these families represents a thread that makes up the fabric of our communities. When one thread is ripped out, it affects us all. It is time to make real systemic change to the way our government is run. The next governor will not have a second to lose to make up for the sad legacy of Governor Granholm. I will act with a sense of urgency because it is time we focus on the next generation and not the next election.”

Props to Mike Bouchard! It is good to see a Republican gubernatorial candidate take an approach that doesn’t attack the Republican competition, but instead puts the focus on Democratic Governor Jennifer Granholm and her failed policies.
