  •  Rove is wasting his money (0+ / 0-)

    Almost everyone has an opinion of Obama, negative ads won't change what you think of him. No matter how bad they say Obama is minds are mostly made up.
    They should spend their money trying to sell Romney not tear down Obama but we shall see. I don't know a person who is going to change how they vote  because of ads.

    •  They can't sell Romney, he's unlikeable. They (1+ / 0-)

      have to tear Obama down.  In their words, "make the election a referrendum on Obama."

      They will create a false Obama and run against "him."  Many Americans will not see the switch because the RW owns the media and NPR buys into the false equivalency bs.

      Most everyone thinks they're personally not influenced by advertising, but the stats tell us that they are.  Negative ads really do work.  They create a mood, kill enthusiasm, and make Dems apologetic for supporting our guy.  And they force us to use their language, which defines the terms of the "debate."

      Our messaging is excellent now, in contrast to a couple of years ago.  We just need the money to get the message out.

      Our ground game is very good but they're catching up.  We've just gotta fight as hard as we can, imo...donations plus volunteering.  

      And don't ever let them (or some on DK) get us to apologize.  Were fighting for opportunity, fairness, sanity, and people, and they are truly evil.

      The Ryan Budget and their hatred of the 99%, minorities, women, workers, are there for all to see.  If the truth gets told.

      Opinions can be changed with enough ads.  That's why there are ads.  We need to be able to do the same.

      Cats are better than therapy, and I'm a therapist.

    •  Carl Rove could spend $1 Trillion (0+ / 0-)

      And it would not matter if the Dems run ads depicting the truth of the GOP and the Ryan Budget.

      Ads with Seniors eating Dog Food and Grandmom being tossed over the cliff will work.
