Ad Watch: Dodd, Obama, And Romney
Obama's New Radio Ad Full Of... Manure
"You know, you see a lot of manure in our line of work," Lyon says in the ad. "It's a lot like politics. You got to know what's bull and what's for real." Ah, the sarcasm. Lyon spends time during the 60-second ad touting Obama's rural agenda. The ad is called "For Us."
Dodd's Latest 'Cut'
Chris Dodd has a new 60-second ad now airing in Iowa. It is part of the senator's increased focus on Iowa, which includes moving his family full-time to Des Moines, as The Fix reported last week. "Barbershop" discusses Dodd's Senate experience, while teasing (get it?) the senator about his white hair.
"No, I didn't get the white hair from the Peace Corps or the military," he says. "Twenty-six years on the Foreign Relations Committee, oh yeah, that'll do it."
"If he got nominated, we'd have a Democrat who could win," a barber says.
The ad ends with an announcer stating, "Chris Dodd. Results for a Change." Dodd's slogan adds a whole new layer of semantics to the debate about "change and experience" that Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Bill Richardson have all highlighted in their TV ads.
Romney Means 'Business'
Mitt Romney talks up his real-world business experience in his latest ad, "Business World." It starts airing tomorrow in South Carolina. It is shot in the same style as Romney's recent ads about his conservative credentials, and reforming the Republican Party.
"As president, I'll audit Washington -- top to bottom -- and cut spending, because our next president has to be an agent of change," Romney says.
