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!
