    RIP positive ads in 2012


    @ RIP positive ads in 2012

    I'm not so sure they should add Contrast to Negative side. But campaigns are increasingly negative, returning to the negativity seen historically.

    $#@! all you want, they run negative ads because they work.

    It is the FUD principal. Create Fear, uncertainty and doubt

    Canada has seen a rise in negative advertisements during our election seasons - I remember reading an article about how our election process is being influenced by the US elections. I anticipate that as yours increase, so to shall ours.

    Shame, really.

    The democrats sure learned not to do another Kerry again...
    Sorry--but I do not accept the idea that being intolerant of intolerance is THE SAME THING as being intolerant of anything else.

    You forgot "loathing." Comes after "fear."

    Too bad the Republicans didn't. Seriously, the parallels between Kerry and Romney are really kinda remarkable.

    Democrats learned to run candidates with no history other than one they wrote themselves. I couldn't believe Sen. Kerry's nomination where he saluted and said, "Reporting for duty." Gov. Bush didn't stand a chance in 2000 running against an incumbent VP and stood even less of a chance against Sen. Kerry.

    That said, I'm not sure how much credence I give the Wesleyan Media Project. What is a negative ad is a very subjective assessment.

    Chrysler is moving Jobs to China, don't listen to what the Chrysler and GM CEOs say, what do they know about their own Industry ... listen to Mitt ... he knows better.
    Whenever you think of giving up, just think of all the people who would Love to see you FAIL

    Its origin has been embedded in this nationís consciousness since the Nat Turner revolt; a pathological fear that the oppressed will one day rise up and inflict vengeance upon the oppressor.
