NEW anti Obama ads started here about a week or so ago..."I voted for Obama last time, and I wish I hadn't..." etc.

They are paid for by Americans For Job Security, a right wing group that has been around since 1997...

There are also ads by and for Tom Smith, a teabagger founder from Western PA who also owns a coal mine notorious for safety violations...He is running against Bob Casey, who also has a new ad that actually tells the truth.

Casey and Obama both are leading here in PA.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    mindara win over female voters in PA, with a new ad voiced-over by a woman pushing a jogging stroller.  Why they'd run that ad on CSN during a Sixers game is beyond me, but hey, it's their money.

        They could pay me a few thousand to yell, "vote for Romney" down an empty alley and it would have the same effect..and I could get both my old cars fixed.

    that they can't spend elsewhere because of saturation.

    As Rendell said, they don't want to end this thinking they didn't put it all out there. Both Obama and Romney have a ton of reserve cash, with nowhere to put it that will do any good.
