    debt is not used repeatedly in ads is beyond me.  It makes it so clear who is to blame.  Similarly, the unemployment graphs Meteor Blades posts every week show clearly who is to blame for the recession and job loss (and who can take credit for the recovery!) should be given wide distribution and ad space.

    Ronald Reagan used to use such visual aids in his addresses to the nation.  Although they were usually bullshit and he was ridiculed for using them, I think they were very effective.  Lots of people process information visually.  By not using these graphs to communicate, Obama and the Dems are making a big mistake.  A picture is still worth a thousand words.
