The Obama Infomercial

You’ve seem them pushing weight loss, kitchen utensils and OxyClean. Last night, you may have see the latest infomercial; this one peddling a candidate for President of the United States of America.
Obama used some of his illegal campaign contributions and bought himself an infomercial.
The infomercial was full of typical Obama things, people who foolishly took out sub-prime adjustable mortgages and are whining about their payments, people who feel flooded in bills (that would be all of us – welcome to life), people who want free education and people who want, want and want.
Not only was it an infomercial selling a candidate for president, it was an infomercial selling socialism and entitlement.

WASHINGTON — In a campaign ad aired at a cost of millions, Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama promised a rescue plan for the middle class in tough times Wednesday night as he reached for victory in his 21-month quest for the presidency.

“I will not be a perfect president,” Obama said in the commercial. “But I can promise you this — I will always tell you what I think and where I stand.”

Aides described the unusual ad as a final summation of Obama’s campaign. They put the total cost at roughly $4 million, enough to show it simultaneously on CBS, NBC and Fox. It also was running on BET, Univision, MSNBC and TV One.

Republican John McCain derided the event as a “gauzy, feel-good commercial,” paid for with broken promises.

Across 30 minutes, the commercial blended views of Obama speaking in a setting that resembled the Oval Office, at the Democratic National Convention and elsewhere as well as scenes of Americans discussing their economic and health care troubles, and testimonials to the Democratic presidential candidate by politicians and business executives.
