I Wonder How Much They Paid for This Ad? (Video)

I make political ads.  It’s something I’ve done for several years.

Generally, I’m impressed with the work of other “professionals” and analyze their videos to understand what works.

This time, I sat in slack-jawed wonder at what I was watching.

Yeah, it’s that bad:

Just, wow.

Just from a technical aspect, the video is poorly shot, exposure is too high in some places, too dark in others.  There’s no music bed to drive the message.

And what’s with the golf comment at the end.

Sure, people are talking about it, but not for the right reason.

But maybe I’m wrong.  What do you think?

Nice: Maryland News Passive-Aggressively Assigns Sole Blame of Obamacare on Democrats (Video)

It’s a strange graphic for television news, but far more beautiful a sight than the other more heavily designed ones.  It was only on for about 10 seconds, but that was enough for me:

The story that follows was about a Maryland supermarket that’s done hiring because of Obamacare.  The fact the above graphic was put into the viewers brain beforehand is awesome.  Maybe it’ll be enough to wake a few people up:

White House Warns: There Will Be Costs for Russia’s “Series of Provocations” (Comic)

The White House is talking big:

White House press secretary Jay Carney called a Russian fighter jet’s buzzing of a U.S. Navy destroyer in the Black Sea one of a series of Russian “provocations” and threatened that there would be costs for Moscow’s aggressive actions in Ukraine.

“I can assure you that Russia’s provocations and further transgressions will come with a cost,” he said. “Certainly if they go further down the road in attempting to destabilize Ukraine … the costs will continue to grow.”

I wrote about the Russian pilot earlier here.

Is there any reason to think Russia is worried about these “costs.?”

What could Obama possibly do?  Sanctions?

I’m certain Putin could care less what Obama’s White House thinks.  In fact, I think that conversation would look a little like this:

obamavvlad

 

To paraphrase Morgan Freeman in Seven, “Putin has the upper hand.”

Obama hasn’t done anything to show he’ll take a stand.  In fact, he’s promised to be “more flexible” this term.

The only surprising thing is that more countries aren’t pulling stunts like this.

Reset: Russian Fighter Buzzed U.S. Guided Missile Destroyer

01-lavrov-clinton-reset-button

I imagine he’s laughing because this was so, so stupid.

I can’t wait for Hillary to run for president.  Seriously, I hope she does.  

She’s about as flawed a candidate as the Democrats could run.  Let her run on her experience as Secretary of State.  I’m more than happy to remind everyone of her “Reset button” moment, and then point out how well that worked out.

For example:

A Russian attack warplane engaged in “provocative action” when it repeatedly buzzed a U.S. Navy guided missile destroyer in the western Black Sea on Saturday, U.S. military officials tell NBC News.

According to officials, in a 90-minute encounter, the Russian SU-24 fighter jet made a dozen low passes — ranging from sea level to several thousand feet — near the USS Donald Cook.

The crew aboard the Donald Cook made several attempts to radio the Russian warplane asking the pilot what were his intentions and sending warnings to remain at a safe distance, but the Russian pilot never responded.

Perhaps he didn’t respond by radio, but I’m pretty sure the pilot responded.  

Remember that scene from Top Gun…yeah, it was like that.

My Interview with Dan Bongino, Former Secret Service Agent, Author and Congressional Candidate (Video)

Dan Bongino spoke at FreePAC Kentucky and later, sat down and spoke with me:

Here’s the speech he gave to the audience:

My Interview With Andrew Wilkow at #FreePAC Kentucky (Video)

On of my favorite talk radio personalities was at FreePAC Kentucky and was cool enough to come over to Blogger’s Row and chat with me.  Andrew Wilkow is on Sirius/XM’s Patriot channel from 11-2 CST and has a show on The Blaze.

This interview is a big deal for me.  I hope you enjoy it:

Rob Lowe, Libertarian

You spend a few years working with Ron Swanson, this will happen to you:

“My thing is personal freedoms, freedoms for the individual to love whom they want, do with what they want. In fact, I want the government out of almost everything.”

Lowe knows a little about politics — he played a Democratic speechwriter on “The West Wing,” a Republican senator on “Brothers and Sisters,” a city manager on “Parks and Recreation,” and President John F. Kennedy in “Killing Kennedy.”

In 2009, the Daily Caller quoted Lowe as saying that he was once “a really, really liberal Democrat.” But since getting married and having children, he’d changed into “an independent moderate.”

I’d like to think that working on Parks & Rec with Nick Offerman LITERALLY turned Rob Lowe into a libertarian:

Thank you, Ron Swanson.

Dems Push Paycheck Equality While Obama’s White House Pays Women Less Than Men

women-for-obamaHere’s their plan. Democrats are going to sell paycheck equality in 2014. More class warfare to stir up the masses against the Republicans:

The full-court press by the White House, congressional Democrats and party officials, comes on National Equal Pay Day, which reflects how far into the current year women must work to match what men earned in the previous year.

President Barack Obama on Tuesday will go back to the first law he signed as President, addressing equal pay with two new executive actions that satisfy both policy and political priorities within the White House.

According to a White House official, Obama’s executive actions will focus on “pay secrecy,” the idea that women who are paid less than their male counterparts may not know it because they don’t know what other employees are making.

I know just where he can start:

Despite advocates’ cheers about paycheck equity, the Obama White House has paid women less than men for years.

According to a Daily Caller analysis of “2013 Annual Report to Congress on White House Staff,”  the most recent available data on White House pay, the White House paid women an estimated 11.8 percent less than men in 2013.

The year prior White House paid women 13 percent less than men — and in 2011, according to the Free Beacon, women were paid 18 percent less.

Not surprising considering Obama’s misogynist comments in the past:

The moment came at a campaign stop in Detroit, when Peggy Agar, a reporter at ABC’s Detroit affiliate WXYZ-TV, asked Obama this question: “Senator, how are you going to help the American autoworkers?”

“Hold on a second, sweetie. We’ll hold a press avail,” replied Obama, referring to a structured question and answer session with the media.

Hours later, Obama left Agar a voicemail, apologizing for not answering her question and for calling her “sweetie.”

“That’s a bad habit of mine,” Obama said in the message. “I do it sometimes with all kinds of people. I mean no disrespect and so I am duly chastened on that front.”

You want to know what Democrats are up to?  Look at what they’re accusing Republicans of doing.

Interview with CL Bryant at FreePAC Kentucky (Video) – UPDATED

I was able to interview Rev. CL Bryant at FreePAC Kentucky following his speech. As of yet, Freedomworks has not uploaded his speech, and I don’t know if they will. If they do, I’ll add it to the post:
