Hillary gives McCain a freebie

Hillary's new ad is pretty much the perfect campaign ad... for John McCain. She does a pretty damn good job of striking fear into your heart, doesn't she?

I don't know about you, but I was definitely a-scared of who was going to answer the phone. Did this ad really make you want her to be the one who answers?

I don't think so...

langtry:

She's joking, right? Because, quite frankly, to disdain the military isn't "to know the military". She has no idea that she is highlighting Republicans well-established superiority on that issue. But to appeal to people's neurotic fearfulness about their children? Definitely Democrat SOP.

It is particularly baffling to see this kind of ad in a Democratic primary where the majority of voters are still angry about Hillary's vote for the Iraq War resolution. In their eyes, Hillary was tested with a call at 3AM and she failed the test, while Obama was speaking out against the war.

The only possible explanation here is that Hillary is trying to inflict damage on Obama so McCain wins the general and she can start targeting the 2012 general election.

Mac Lorry:

It's actually a good ad. Hillary knows she has to beat Obama now even if that means making a point for McCain in the general election. Hillary's in a tough spot. She can't challenge Obama on issues because what Obama believes is what most Democrat voters believe. She can't play the gender card too much without risking it backfiring. All she has is her experience as first lady and that's not getting any traction.

By next week I think Obama will take a commanding lead and then he'll role over McCain in the general election like a M1 tank over a Nissan pickup. It's all unfolding according to my plan to destroy the democrat party.

I disagree its what all Democrats believe. However it is what the activists, media, nutroots, and billionare leftists believe. The rest are sheeple who don't know what their party stands for anymore.

Mac Lorry:

Brian,

The difference is that Obama doesn't know he's the fall guy. I couldn't believe my luck when this empty suite showed up promising change to mindless lefty voters. They're going to get change all right and when it comes then they'll realize they should have asked what change Obama was talking about.

Hopefully McCain won't win the election and screw things up.

I think the McCain campaign could save some ad production costs by simply having him stand in front of a screen while this ad plays and then turn to the camera and say with a big smile "I'm John McCain and boy do I approve this message".

I said "what Obama believes is what most Democrat voters believe"

However it is what the activists, media, nutroots, and billionare leftists believe.

When you include "nutroots" in the list you are now talking about most Democrat voters.

Matt:

Wow, that had me going for a minute there. I thought it might be Monica Lewinsky picking up the phone! If that is what Hillary looks like at 3am, I understand why Bill roams.

The voice over told me to vote for McCain. The Voices in my head just keep saying BOHICA. The "Change," we are going to get is about 75 cents after taxes if Obama wins.

Dave W:

McCain isn't exactly much better as far as security goes. People think he is, but what would he do if he answered that phone? He'd probably tell the CIA/Military/whatever, that we can't detain people on foreign soil, so we need to give them some money, a good dinner and buy them a new house for the inconvenience of actually capturing terrorists.

At the very least, buy the poor guy a coffee
