This ode to Orwell’s Oceana will back fire. Stripmines Fun and Free? Sick people just die? Oil fills the sea? My first response to the string of over-the-top Democrat talking points sung by the mindless cherubs was, “Forget you.” First off, no Republican is considering filling the sea with oil you hapless drones. Sick people dying is what happens under socialist a.k.a. government-controlled healthcare, and no one is proposing strip mining, or mining of any sort that is unregulated. They sing about endless war, which is a term right out Orwell’s novel. The interesting thing is Obama was the president who violated the War Powers Act, not Booosh.
What is truly sad is that it is the Obama-Democrat policies that will have us accused by children and grand children who will ask, “What were you thinking?” They might also ask “Why am I in debt to the tune of $100K because you could not say ‘enough’!?” Or, “You voted for someone because you felt guilty?” Or, “What was so wrong about questioning the Dear Leader?”
Obama is an Alinski-ite. This ad is right out of the playbook: Trash your opponents, make them react, fault them for their reaction. The trouble is that both sides have learned the playbook. The result will be action not reaction.
This commercial is so unjust, so enraging, the effect will be to motivate those who would otherwise only vote for Romney. People will now go out and knock on doors, stuff envelops, drive people to the polling stations for the Republicans. This should motivate one and all to put up Romney-Ryan signs. People won’t just vote for Romney, they will be writing checks, and working for the Romney campaign — in response to this campaign ad.
With this ad Team Obama has announced they are giving up on the undecideds and independents. They are now hoping for a turn out election. They are looking to motivate their demoralized base. This ad is the opposite of hope and change, it is the embodiment of a scorched earth policy. Playing this ad in a presidential year is a huge mistake; this is an off cycle year campaign ad. The Democrats are demonstrating utter desperation with these singing props.
Lastly, at the rate we are going it is not just Chinese stuff in our stores, it is Chinese ownership of our country’s debt. They already own $1.1T in US treasury bills. Foreign ownership of American dept has exploded under Obama. Some speculate that Obama is looking to take the U.S. down a peg. By now we should be able to peg Obama as a hollow, left-wing, ideological zealot. A community organizer is just another term for rabble-rouser. This empty suite has never worked for a private concern let alone made pay roll. Obama is a product of the Chicago Political Machine. He does not get economics, nor does he understand the lawlessness of his administration. Obama just does not get it, and he never will.
