Barack Obama Infomericial

(Comic from The New York Times)

What did you think about the 30 minute spot the Obama campaign ran today on NBC, CBS and Univison?

The cost was approximately five million dollars and it featured no commercials...

I'm interested in hearing your thoughts...

I thought it was really well done... although having already voted, it just reaffirmed what I already knew and felt about his candidacy...

What struck me the most was how profoundly different his campaign is from McCain's... the entire 30 minutes focused on Obama, his plan and his vision... from what I saw, McCain was not even mentioned once...

This is compared to McCain's campaign over the last month... where every rally, speech and interview is about cultivating fear of Obama and an Obama presidency... when was the last time you heard McCain talk about substantive policy?

The question many pundits are asking is if this infomercial is overkill... what do you think?

I would argue... that for a black man running for president of the United States... there is no such thing as overkill...

peace.

Liked it. Great way 2 wrap up campaign. It was a personable "just in case you forgot what I stand for" way to communicate his platform.

Not certain what David means by "he wants more than I have."

if you don't know waht i mean they you missed the mans message. he wants more out of my pocket. all the cuts are good but where will he cme up with the cash to pay for them. He will have to raise the tax on what we buy. I can't afford what i need today. Listen with your ear's not your eye's. It's about the message not who is doing the talking. If he were white would you care? I think not!
