Hillary Thinks This is a Positive Ad?

Hillary Clinton released her Christmas ad yesterday. I know her campaign thinks it's a positive ad, but its message is really frightening. Take a look.

Update: Dan Riehl doesn't like her ad either. Just what we need, Hillary playing Santa Claus with our taxes:

I can't get over this. So, she's going to take your tax dollars and give them back to you,or, more likely, someone or something else,and that's giving??? Only if you have a huge government mindset. Maybe it's my Hillary bias, but this doesn't work for me at all. It ticks me off. How presumptuous. Clue Hillary - without the taxpayers, you don't have anything to give. Why should we feel grateful for getting some back from you? It's NOT yours, to give, or anything else. What a sense of entitlement this woman brings to government. Geesh!

The music makes this one. It's kind of a horror movie Clavichord version of Carol of the Bells. I think of Home Alone when I hear this, but I don't know if Hillary is Kevin, Kevin's mom, or the water bandits here.

That is a truly stunning ad. You have to wonder if it was parody produced by Republicans.
89 is correct...the score lends an aura of horror. It is a perfect ad for galvanizing the conservative base and illustrates in multiple ways why Hillary has such high negatives.

You're right about the music. It's right on the verge of manic.

It's still in my pocket, Hillary. And if I have any say in the matter, it'll stay there.

Unfortunately blogs like this alert people like Hillary's Campaign staff to the negative aspects of commercials like these before they go too far. Something they would have never seen themselves and stopped in time.

BTW, did I forget to say this commercial looks wonderful!

Shouldn't it be something where the American people give her the gifts? After all, they're the ones paying for them!

I'm a troop and I don't want to stay home. I'm looking forward to my next deployment. I like it over there.
And Universal Pre-K is just another excuse for parents to give their children to someone else sooner. Heaven forbid a mother or father stay with their child until it recognizes their role as parent, not 'evening alcoholic figure.'

As for the music, I would have gone with the same song if I were her. She is going to keep butchering this campaign until she gets zero votes, and then complain that America is sexist, which it isn't. But America is 'dumbass-ist' and thats whats so great about it.

Universal Pre-K is Universal Day Care. Period.

Sorry, but I don't want to pay for your child's day care!

Universal Pre-K????

This is not day-care this is ridiculous! I am sorry we need to stop having children if we continue to have everyone except mom or dad take care of them.

Maybe I will take some heat, but parents need to raise their children...not a village. And after 19 years of one income, I know that this is possible.

The ad would play better around Halloween.
Just my thoughts

As your resident creative ad guy, I can officially say that sucked.
1.) Not funny
2.) Reminding me of a political issues during the Holidays=a very, very bad idea
3.) For the love of me, just wish people Merry Christmas. How hard is it.
4.) Smarmy.

Typical liberal elitist, give gifts with other peoples money. I wonder why she thinks this commercial is a good one?

Not a word about Christmas, not a word about freedom or liberty -- all socialist tripe all the time.

Yikes - music sounds like a cross between Carol of the Bells and Tubular Bells. All that's missing is the signature Hillary cackle at the end.

She forgot to include "...my pretties" at the end of her ad approval voice-over. Why do I get the feeling she's the only one smiling at the end of this video?

Martin Tell:

On God and Santa Claus
From P.J. O'Rourke's book Parliament of Whores

I have only one firm belief about the American political system, and that is this: God is a Republican and Santa Claus is a Democrat.

God is an elderly or, at any rate, middle-aged mate, a stern fellow, patriarchal rather than paternal and a great believer in rules and regulations. He holds men strictly accountable for their actions. He has little apparent concern for the material well-being of the disadvantaged. He is politically connected, socially powerful and holds the mortgage on literally everything in the world. God is difficult. God is unsentimental. It is very hard to get into God's heavenly country club.

Santa Claus is another matter. He's cute. He's nonthreatening. He's always cheerful. And he loves animals. He may know who's been naughty and who's been nice, but he never does anything about it. He gives everyone everything they want without thought of a quid pro quo. He works hard for charities, and he's famously generous to the poor. Santa Claus is preferable to God in every way but one: There is no such thing as Santa Claus.

#16 "Wizbangers" ~ You see, the situation recalls David Letterman's observation when the TV show "Friends" aired their hour-long "retrospective" show before the series finale:

I was trying to add points to wizbangers' comment (my first attempt), I think I hit the yellow triangle instead.
Sorry, I actually like that comment as it shows the intellectual prowess of the poster.
You put up a story about a current candidate for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States and that nitwit, while obviously obsessing over a website, accuses you of obsessing.
Cuz the nomination for President of the United States is obviously much less important than a website.
Irony is dead. Today's lefties killed it and ate the corpse.

It's still in my pocket, Hillary. And if I have any say in the matter, it'll stay there.

Heh. That reminds me of a Mondale-Ferraro ad from 1984: "We're fighting for your future."

I doubt I was alone in responding, "Sorry, it's my future and I'll fight to keep you from getting your hands on it!"

How many states did Mondale win, again? Heh.

I'm surprised that no one has noticed a glaring problem with that ad. Traditionally the name on the card is the recipient of the present, it's not to advertise what is in the wrapped present.

So these are presents TO Universal Health Care and Alternative Energy, etc.

Maybe she is saying exactly that. Elect me and I promise to give presents to all of these special interest groups?

It's not a pet project idiot , it's a WAR. You might have known that if you weren't such a hateful sore loser. That repulsive Senator Rodham Clinton oozes evil with every word and cackle.

"Bush's Pet Project in Iraq

This is just one of many reasons why the incompetent and criminal democrats hate President Bush.

"Bush's Pet Project in Iraq is costing American taxpayers far, far, FAR more money than anything Hillary could dream up."

The difference too is there is a point where that spending will decrease - and considerably so.

There is no end to the spending on Hillary's "pet projects". It will only increase. The first increase will be about 100 fold before the ink is dry on the paperwork.

Another difference is Bush hasn't dug deeply into your pocket for that spending. As a matter of fact, Bush has given you more of your own money back than you've gotten in a long time. Hillary and her successors will have their arms into your pockets up to their shoulders to keep these projects viable for the rest of your and your children's and your grandchildren's lives.
