47. Yes...that 'ad' is an amazing piece of propaganda...
...and it would be very interesting to find out who produced it.

- I believe that ALL of the Democratic candidates would bring a better foreign policy than Bush*...and they wouldn't have to LIE to the nation to do it.

- Another problem for Democrats is that the media has been decidedly against them since the 80s...when they began to build myths around GOP icons like Reagan. The American media promoted Reagan...and now Bush* if they can do no wrong.

- At the same time...they've attacked Democratic candidates and demand that they provide background information and records they never asked of Mr. Bush*. For instance...they made light of Gore's tour in Vietnam...but had nothing to say about Bush* failing to show up for a required physical (and drug test) that led to his being grounded from flying.
