Rudy and Ron Air New Ones
Giuliani Has 'Will' and Leadership in New N.H. Ad
Rudy Giuliani is airing a new ad in New Hampshire that clearly states his immigration reform proposals.
But the ad also provides several reminders of Giuliani's leadership experience: he says the word "leadership" twice, and it also flashes on screen a few times. So if viewers don't care for the immigration message, the leadership references may rub off instead.
"People are frustrated over immigration because the government has been talking about solving this for twenty or twenty-five years, and it's just gotten worse. What we need here is leadership," Giuliani says in the ad. "Build a fence. Train the border patrol. Have a BorderStat system. Have a tamper-proof ID card. And then if you become a citizen you have to be able to read English, write English, speak English and understand American civics. We can end illegal immigration. The technology exists to do it, the people exist to do it. Now we need the political leadership and will to get it done."
Paul Enlists His Family for Holiday Ad
Face it: some people think Ron Paul is crazy, while others write him off as an also-ran. (Please restrain yourselves blog commentators.) But the Texas congressman's new TV and radio ads try to tell a different story. Radio and TV spots talk about the doctor-turned-Congressman who understands the challenges patients and doctors face. Other radio ads talk about his plans to radically change the nation's tax system.
And now Rep. Paul enlists his large family to deliver a simple message: Happy Holidays.
This is arguably the nicest, most pleasant ad of the cycle. Do you agree? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
