* NOTE: This ad is a month old, released around June 30.

Isn't this exactly what Barack was referring to?

4. Actually he looks pretty good up there on Mt. Rushmore
If he can dig us out of this mess the Republicans have wrought, maybe someone will carve him up there.

10. It's like McCain is this childish bully who's popular amoungst...
....a small group of other off-balanced knit-wits; he continues to tell these "insider" jokes to please his little friends.

7. This is a wonderful ad
I am a visual person and it links Obama to America. Obama and the statue of liberty, Obama and Mt Rushmore(ie great prez), Obama and the dollar. It has the reverse effect on me than what the ad wants it to be.

9. The Obama People Ought to Call the McCain Camp
and thank them for the positive images. That's helped get Reagan elected despite heavy criticism.

12. Americans tend to be more visual
The English auditorily oriented (gotta keep track of which accent is beneath you or above you, don't'cha know)

That's why nobody lets us see dead soliders, mutilated children, etc.....

Interestingly Americans tend to suffer more auditory hallucinations (you know.....that thing where the bath water is running and you swear you hear the phone or people talking....well, that counts too) than their cousins across the pond. I would imagine the English tend more toward visual hallucinations, but haven't read any studies suggesting such. It's a matter of the less used sense being "unsophisticated" as far as properly decoding stimuli.

The ad was a blunder, for precisely the reasons you suggest. There was a great story Reagan's team tells about a newscaster giving a really bad report on something R. had done. But instead of using neutral or negative footage, they showed him walking through a rally with balloons and flags, waving and smiling. Reagan's people said his ratings went up after that story aired. Nobody paid attention to the words, just the pictures.

McCains real problem is Obama just looks so damned presidential. His bearing is relaxed and casual, but still authoritative. (Those years of standing in front of a classroom lecturing can do that for you.) So it's difficult to find a "bad" picture of him.

A large number of people in this country vote on their gut. And their guts are definitely swayed by their eyes.

11. Well, after Barack gets our country out of the red, I say
we put him on the $100 bill and print it with BLACK INK to signify we're out of the "GOP RED" era, and into the "BLACK" again.

14. Why can't McCain talk about his OWN record of supporting George W. Bush?
That is the question. This is the "kitchen sink" on steroids: the Clintons played it better. It just doesn't work for me at all.
