I think the FIRST candidate in a political race that airs “attack” ads should automatically lose 25% of their final vote count. Do you think my advertising clients would be in business very long if we BASHED their competitors with every breath? If you can’t find anything POSITIVE, attention-getting, memorable, and unique to say that will get you closer to your goals…fire your ad person.
Also…every candidate is saying they’ll fight to reduce the national debt, create jobs, and reduce wasteful spending. Really?!!! EVERY candidate wants that. But nobody is telling us how they actually plan to accomplish those things. Give me some ideas! I don’t just want a candidate to just sit on their butt, collect a nice paycheck, and vote one way or the other…I want to see some “out of the box” thinking. I want to hear about IDEAS you have to help get our country back on track. Stop telling me you’re going to help “create jobs”. I call foul! Tell me HOW you’re going to do it.
Ok, that’s the extent of my political rant. :-) Right now, neither side gets my vote.
