Thread Name: BS: Should Obama Run in '12???
Subject: RE: BS: Should Obama Run in '12???
...followed with yet another evening of Republican attack ads... Have you seen the one with the woman walkin' thru the grocery store complaining how "the government" is trying to tell her what she can and can not buy??? The message is clear: (Obama's) government is meddling in yer affairs!!! Horrors...

This kind of ad is all about making the current (think Obama here) government's intrusion into your freedom... This ad is still being run every night of the week...

Problem is that the government isn't doin' that stuff... But if you show the commercial every day for months what sets in to folks thinkerators is that this government (Obama's) is out to get you...

The larger problem is that this commercial is being funded by whom??? Who knows???

The even larger problem is that those of us on the progressive side see this ad as Karl REove bullshit yet we don't have the big corporate donors to buy ads to refute it...

That's really what it comes down to here... People have these wierd ideas about what the government is trying to do to them because the corporations want people to be scared of the current (Obama's) government and the progressives don't have the financial means to fight back... I mean, on the $$$$ side, Boss Hog wins a 100 times out of a 100...

That sucks big time and will only get our country in worse shape with way too many people absorbing Boss Hog's message...
