Default Campaign Advertisements

Which campaign ads appeal to you most? The attack ads, or the nice and spiffy ads talking about the candidate speaking and the candidate alone?

Attack Ads: McCain-Pro, Obama-Pro

"Normal" Ads: Obama-Pro, McCain-Pro

I prefer the normal nice ads because they keep the peace~

Attacking ads mostly. I mean, the normal spiffy ones don't get down right to it, and point out the wrongness in what the other canidate is supporting.

I am so freaking sick of the Norm Coleman vs. Al Franken ads for U.S. Senate. Not only are they some of the worst (both in quality and ethicality) in the country, they also cost a fortune. Normal/Informative ftw.

Nice ads.

Because instead of telling about what the opponent CAN'T do the nicer ones talk about what they, themselves CAN do.

i need nice ads. i want to learn wat they want not wat the others dont want.

attacking ads are dumb. they just give reasons why the other is wrong

normal ads let me see what they are going to do to help.

I say the attacking ads.
Because, they teach others
that world peace CANNOT,
and I repeat... CANNOT
be achieved.

Grip reality, people.
The world will always bleed with sin.

=]

And the McCain ads are truer than
the Obama ones.

"That what it be."

I say the normal ads, because let's face it; do we really care if Candidate A makes Candidate B cry because of their advertisement? No. The points of ads are to convince voters, undecided or not, that they are the right candidate for the job. Ads aren't meant to show how low the Candidates go into hurting the opponent.

They're all equally annoying. Election season always takes away the fun commercials. :(

Vote- I don't give a flip

Mud slinging has been the heart of American elections since 1828. John Quincy Adams was a dirty pimp.
