What Constitutes A Negative Ad?......

If a political ad is accurate and truthful about a candidate in what it states but happens to be contrary to the lies that this candidate is trying to spew about himself - is the political ad negative?

To me a negative ad is one that if full of lies and half truths about a candidate and it is used to sway potential voters opinions about a candidate - when they don't have the truth to work with.

I'm interested in hearing opinions here about what constitutes a negative ad.

1. "What if Obama wanted to put on high heels and stomp on kittens in front of your kids?"

 

"That's exactly what he plans to do if he's re-elected. Rmoney loves kittens. He loves your children. Obama hates both. Not good for kittens or kids. Not good for Amercia."

"Paid for by some superPAC with no accountability or responsibility for the content of this ad."

-

That about covers it. Same basic template. Same stupid message. And things like that work because half of the country is made up of uninformed idiots.

3. I heard Obama is going to take the magic underwear away from all of the Mormons.

He is also going to stop them from stealing SSNs from all of the dead people.
