Up for Debate: Political ad effectiveness

Monday, September 24, 2012 at 1:54am

How much of an effect do political ads have on swaying your decision in an election? Are you turned off from a candidate because of negative ads? Have you ever felt distinctly swayed by an ad?

.John Jay has it right on electing judges.

Yes, I definitely agree with him on that.

The thing holding him back is that every suit in his closet is a wardrobe malfunction.

I think this calls for a "bless his heart."

"Back when our great granparents were riding the underground railroad." Michelle Obama OMG that is Joe Biden material gaffe of all time!!!
If Sarah Palin or a Republican woman said this the media would not shut up! But since the Queen of America is Black, she gets a pass.

Sadly once again President Obama does not have the time to meet with world leader's at the UN. His schedule is full of campain stops. He told the world leader's and I quote "that is what telephones at the white house is for.
But, he had an opening in his schedule so he will appear on the view, again.
I'm so glad you people voted this man into office. He is leading us into WWIII
Oh and his comment's on our Ambassador being murdered, along with 3 other American's being murdered, the Arab Spring, the unrest in the Middle east, and I quote "These are bumps in the road"

bfra,

Unless you and your fellow posters are communist comrades with Barry Soetoro, you have one of two options: Learn who he is and wake up, or "be prepared". Unless you're a fellow communist of his, you ain't gonna like it.
