Obama is going to spend $600 million on 30 seconds advertising

Sorry, not 30 seconds. 30 minutes!!

$600 million?? that is a LOT of money, he should donate $600 mil to our ailing economy. Wow, $600 million. Obviously, he is fighting to death, he really, really, really wants to get the White House.

Instead, the television stations will keep the money and the executives are going to light up their cigars.

Silly you.

Obama doesn't need to spend THAT much money for 30 minutes of advertising on national television stations as long as he's the leader in current polls.

So you can see [i]how[i] he spends on silly things. When he's our President, he'll waste our tax money on silly things that we DON'T need.

This thread is a good example of how easy it is to start an Obama smear. You guys are so gullible.

The 30minute ad buy was about 4 to 5 million, not 600 million. Big difference.

http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/10/...ef=mpstoryview

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sen. Barack Obama's 30-minute TV ad, which ran simultaneously on broadcast and cable networks at 8 p.m. ET Wednesday, is muscle-flexing that has little precedent, a campaign advertising expert said.
Sen. Barack Obama aired a 30-minute campaign ad Wednesday night.

Sen. Barack Obama aired a 30-minute campaign ad Wednesday night.

"It's evidence, if you needed any, that the Obama campaign has more money than there is ad time left to buy," said Evan Tracey, director of the Campaign Media Analysis Group. "This is flexing the muscles."

Tracey estimates that it will cost the campaign "in the $4 to 5 million range -- at a minimum, $3.5 million."

But, he said, spending the money is a "no-brainer" for the Democratic presidential hopeful.

"The strategic brilliance of this for Obama is that he is going to consume about 24 hours of the news cycle," Tracey said. "It boxes [John] McCain in, takes the oxygen out of the room."

In the carefully produced infomercial, Obama laid out his plans for the economy and for bringing an end to the war in Iraq.

It also featured stories of struggling families in swing states such as Ohio and Missouri and included testimonials from high-profile supporters, including Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius and New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson.

Obama's Republican opponent, Arizona Sen. John McCain, was not mentioned, nor was the GOP. The spot ended with a brief, live Obama address to a rally in Florida, another hotly contested state in this year's campaign.

"I'm reminded every single day that I am not a perfect man," he said. "I will not be a perfect president.

"But I can promise you this: I will always tell you what I think and where I stand. I will always be honest with you about the challenges we face. I will listen to you when we disagree. And, most importantly, I will open the doors of government and ask you to be involved in your own democracy again."

There was so much buzz surrounding the infomercial -- which was announced about two weeks ago -- that on Tuesday, Time magazine's Mark Halperin put the ad's two editors on his daily list of the "five most important people in American politics not running for president."

Those editors, Erik Smith and Mark Putnam, were "still in an edit room" cutting the 30-minute piece Tuesday when he published the list, according to Halperin, Time's editor-at-large and senior political analyst.

The ad ran at 8 p.m. ET on CBS, NBC, MSNBC, Fox, BET, TV One and Univision, the Spanish-language network, six days before Election Day.

That's their whole M.O. They pull something outta their ass and throw it out there as fact. Nobody bothers to check it out. Pretty dumb.

No wonder the media supports him- he can provide them the most bucks. $$$$ and then brainwash the TV coma induced idiots of this country to vote for him. so Sad the media can try to swing an election. in the past that only happened in communist or nazi countries.

lol at thinking it cost 600 million. A 30 minute super bowl commercial would cost just slightly more than a quarter of that.
