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!

Run Tim Pawlenty, run!

Politico reports:

Former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty announced the formation of a presidential exploratory committee on Monday, taking the first concrete step toward a 2012 run. He made the announcement on Facebook, posting a video with the dramatic camera angles and crescendoing music that we have come to expect from the former governor. Pawlenty made a post on his Facebook wall this morning telling visitors to return at 3 p.m. for a special announcement. In keeping with the theatrics of the video, a countdown clock ticked down the seconds until the announcement.

Obviously this was not a surprise to those who have been paying attention to the political scene on a regular basis, but it was important that Tim Pawlenty threw his name in the ring as a presidential candidate before any of the other bigger names. Unfortunately for T-Paw, the news of his formation of a presidential exploratory committee has the potential of quickly fading out relevance  due to the 24/7 news cycle and chaotic events occurring around the globe.

On the bright of it all, Tim Pawlenty’s political advertisements are absolutely amazing and I can’t wait for more to come in the future!

Right now, Tim Pawlenty and Mitch Daniels are the two realistic candidates I have my eye on for the 2012 presidential race.

Wonder what you would find if you frisked President Obama’s re-election campaign?

Answer: He is expected to raise a whopping $1 BILLION and that money has to come from somewhere.

The relationship between labor unions and the Democratic Party is one that needs to watched.

AFSCME (a public employees union) was biggest outside spender of the 2010 midterm election:

The 1.6 million-member AFSCME is spending a total of $87.5 million on the elections after tapping into a $16 million emergency account to help fortify the Democrats’ hold on Congress. Last week, AFSCME dug deeper, taking out a $2 million loan to fund its push. The group is spending money on television advertisements, phone calls, campaign mailings and other political efforts, helped by a Supreme Court decision that loosened restrictions on campaign spending.

[…]

Previously, most labor-sponsored campaign ads had to be funded by volunteer donations. Now, however, AFSCME can pay for ads using annual dues from members, which amount to about $390 per person. AFSCME said it will tap membership dues to pay for $17 million of ads backing Democrats this election.

Labor unions were created to be a vehicle to get workers more of the profits they help create. Government workers, however, do not generate profits. They merely negotiate for more tax money. Unfortunately, when government unions strike, they strike against the taxpayers who fund their salaries, pensions, benefits, etc.

Props to the Republican National Committee for releasing this political advertisement. It’s refreshing to see them take a firm stand on this issue.

Wonder what you would find if you frisked US Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV)?

Answer: He continues to protect President Obama’s far-left agenda.

Like the good puppet he is, Sen. Manchin voted against repealing the healthcare reform law after promising his constituents that he would stand up to Obama. So far, we have yet to see it.

The National Republican Senatorial Committee reports:

In the wake of Wednesday evening’s health care repeal vote, in which liberal U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) voted to protect ObamaCare – including its individual mandate, $500 billion in Medicare cuts, and $570 billion in tax hikes – the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) today launched a new online ad campaign titled “Joe & O: On Tour.”

In addition to the NRSC’s first web ad of the 2012 cycle, the campaign will also include a new microsite,www.JoeAndO.com, a one-stop-shop for information on Manchin’s pro-Obama voting record. The NRSC will drive traffic to the site using Google and Facebook ads targeted at West Virginia, as well as banner ads on the Drudge Report and West Virginia news sites.

“Joe Manchin has tried again and again to hide his support for the Obama agenda, but his vote for ObamaCare leaves no doubt as to where he stands: for Medicare cuts, tax hikes and government mandates, and against West Virginia’s best interests,” said NRSC Communications Director Brian Walsh. “Despite his many campaign promises as he sought West Virginia’s Senate seat, Manchin has used his time in Washington to embrace President Obama’s liberal policies, and voters won’t be fooled by his election-cycle posturing when he faces them at the polls next year.”

Props to the NRSC. Not the best political advertisement, but it is pretty humorous.

Sen. Manchin, who won a special election last year, is going to face a tough 2012 reelection battle. He currently leads any potential Republican candidates, but that is expected at this point. The left leaning Public Policy Polling reports:

Joe Manchin seems to have made a pretty easy transition from Charleston to Washington DC. He was one of the most popular Governors in the country and now he’s one of the most popular Senators in the country.

[…]

Shelley Moore Capito is very popular as well, with 54% of voters across the state holding a favorable opinion of her to only 30% with a negative one. In addition to being beloved by voters in her own party, independents rate her favorably by a 62/20 spread and she has an unusual level of crossover popularity with Democrats who break nearly even in their assessments of her, 42% positive and 43% negative. Despite Capito’s popularity she would still start out nine points behind Manchin in a hypothetical contest at 50-41.

Against a couple other potential Republican opponents we tested- new Congressman David McKinley and his opponent from last year, Raese, Manchin leads by considerably more dominant margins. It’s 57-28 over McKinley who a majority of voters in the state still don’t have an opinion about yet. And it’s 60-31 over Raese, whose favorability rating with the state’s voters is now an awful 30/52 spread. That’s definitely not the direction Republicans want to go in again.

Obviously there is no need to be worried at this point. We have a long way to go until the 2012 general election. However, this I do know: We must turn the state of West Virginia red.

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!

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the Democrats’ advertising strategy for the upcoming mid-term election?

Answer: Their self-proclaimed “historic” vote for Obama-Care is nowhere to be found.

Honestly Democrats, what’s wrong with millions of Americans losing their current health insurance? Or the individual mandate that will erode our liberty and increase taxes? Or the fact that it’s not paid for? Or better yet, creating a complex one-size-fits-all health-care system that will eventually centralize America’s health-care decisions in Washington? What could possibly go wrong?

Perhaps that’s why Democrats are avoiding the subject all together – besides the few Democrats who just-so-happen to be running against the new health-care law. Politico reports:

At least five of the 34 House Democrats who voted against their party’s health care reform bill are highlighting their “no” votes in ads back home. By contrast, party officials in Washington can’t identify a single House member who’s running an ad boasting of a “yes” vote — despite the fact that 219 House Democrats voted in favor of final passage in March.

One Democratic strategist said it would be “political malfeasance” to run such an ad now.

Democrats have taken that advice to heart; it appears that no Democratic incumbent — in the House or in the Senate — has run a pro-reform TV ad since April, when Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) ran one.

I have one word for Democrats: Meow.

Here’s a suggestion, how about you liberal cowards “man-up” and back your record if Obama-Care is such a great thing for the United States? (Democrats’ reaction: click here) Yeah, that’s what I thought.
