With Two Weeks To Caucus, Ads Fly Fast And Heavy [VIDEOS]

With Two Weeks To Caucus, Ads Fly Fast And Heavy [VIDEOS]

 

It’s almost time for the Iowa caucuses, and the New Hampshire primary just one week after that. And that means the airwaves are now totally saturated with campaign ads in those media markets.

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich is trying to continue his positive campaign, and his superPAC is helping him out with a new ad profiling his leadership and conservative views.

 

 

Former Governor of Utah Jon Huntsman takes the same approach in in New Hampshire, where ad ad by his superPAC seeks to show that political pundits and leaders alike declare him a “conservative hero.”

 

 

Meanwhile, former Governor of Massachusetts Mitt Romney’s superPAC takes a different approach, attacking Gingrich by linking him with President Barack Obama and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and saying that he has supported pro-choice legislation and is too close to Fannie and Freddie.

 

 

Texas Governor Rick Perry takes on both Romney and Gingrich in his own commercial, calling Romney “Wall Street,” Gingrich “K Street,” and himself “Main Street.”

 

 

Totally confused with all the different messages at this point? Well, don’t worry. Congressman Ron Paul says you can trust him. After all, he is “The One.”

Liberty, Freedom and Honesty are becoming popular finally. People are starting to see the damage that ignoring these basic principles are doing.

My vote will go to the only honest candidate that takes their oath of office seriously. If every politician did this we would not be in the dire crisis we find our country in.

"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States."

Ron Paul 2012!

Reminders me of a bumper I once saw years ago: "I feel so much better since I gave up hope."

More and more sickening incompetence. It's like the republinos have a monopoly. It seems I remember boehner walking out on President Obama during budget talks and now that once again the congress and once again the house is dysfunctional under boehner's leadership wants President Obama to again do boehner's job and unite the house into voting for a solution. I believe President Obama has enough on his plate that he doesn't need to add boehner's and the republinos' incompetence to it. Another of the amazing and unbelievably mind boggling events in the world of politics is republinos continue to vote for republinos. Wait and see, boehner will get reelected along with enough republinos to continue to cause harm to not only our country but the whole world.

Christopher F. Have you been paying attention at all? Ron Paul is a Constitutionist of the highest order. He is the only hope for America in my opinion (I'm not American).

To paint Dr. Paul with the same brush as all the other "liars and con men" is an offence to the consistency of character that he has displayed uninterrupted throughout his life and his political career.

You really should THINK a little before making such spurious charges!

All sorts of fat in those videos, but nothing that says that they actually deserve my vote. Just emphasis on that word "conservative", as if that makes one automatically qualified.

Hey! I am a fiscal conservative. Does that qualify me to run for President? Of course not. I am also a Constitutional preserver. THAT qualifies me more than anyone in the GOP. At least I don't believe that the US Constitution is something to be tossed aside at a whim or that our civil rights matter less than that of the 1%.

The ENTIRE GOP is nothing but con men and liars. Friends don't let friends vote for politicians that don't address the issues honestly and in keeping with the AMERICAN values as set forth in our Constitution.

Thank goodness I do not watch much television, couldn't even stomach watching the ads posted but thanks anyway

I am sick to death of all this posturing. Why can't elections just take place in the Nov of the correct year instead of dragging it out for years on end!

Pop M.,

If you mean infrastructure spending it is beause it has to be done anyway.

Having said that, it will not replace the millions of jobs being off-hored to foreign countries any more then throwing money to those that are creating jobs anywhere but the U.S.

The data that everyone is comfortable with is skewed with data not including companies with less than 50 employees, the vast majority of U.S. companies. It also does not include job losses where there is not an accompanying lay off so lost new hires and attrition jobs where employees are moved eliminating new hires are not included. The actual data could be multiplied by at least 2 or 3 taking it into a million a year catagory.

All this is being hidden from the general public by government spokespersons and the media, but is available for all to see in the fine print. None of this includes companies that deliberately mask their off-shoring deeds.
