Have you seen this ad in support of Obama? It shows senior citizens threatening to punch Romney and burn down the country if Obama loses. They don't say "country," though - they say "MFer." Is this okay with you? If the right came out with an ad that threatened violence against Obama and the nation, the left would be screaming. Will any of the liberals here admit that?

BTW, I'm not blaming Obama for the ad, as I'm sure he had nothing to do with it. I'm just trying to understand avid Obama supporters here. I'm hoping they denounce such ads.
michael moore is the lowest form of life on earth, about equal to jane fonda I guess. These terrible people are seditious anti-American scum. I don't subscribe to their entertainment and I suggest that others don't as well. I am not surprised at such an offensive ad. I am voting for Romney, a decent hardworking American.
Good morning, Waldo. I think both candidates are good men. I'm hoping some liberals here will provide some feedback on this ad.
I'd like some feedback on the ad showing the hanging? I've yet to get a response on that one. Crazies on both sides. This shouldnt even be posted, not but baloney on both sides!
Hanging? I have no idea what you're talking about.
For someone who finds a lot of stuff on Dems, I can't imagine you missing this one! Offensive doesn't begin to describe it! http://www.wthr.com/story/19956914/secr … =printable
I didn't miss that Halloween display. You said "the ad" showing the hanging. There's an ad? I didn't know about the ad, and it wasn't mentioned in the linked article you provided. I think hanging anyone in effigy is extremely offensive, whether it's the POTUS or Palin.
lmao...typical response. Ad, video, whatever, both are the same! Repulsive and making a mockery of Democracy! Both sides have crazies and by Both of Us putting this trash online gives these crazies enjoyment and the recognition they want! That's my point! Why bother putting baloney like yours and mine for anyone to see? It just fuels their fire! Nothing accomplished by it. This whole campaign has turned into a mockery of the election process. Just my opinion.
Habee, I don't watch any of the ads, this has been the nastiest election I can remember, from both sides...I believe both the super pacs are the ones to blame for the really nasty ads. I wish they would stop commercials all together, then people would have to read and research and couldn't vote off the ads.
First, you know this was not an official campaign ad, right? It was made to be humorous and in jest and probably an attempt to create a viral video as indicated by the NSFW. There was not message of " I'm Barack Obama, and I approve this message."
This is not something I would want to see on the public airways but for some reason I find it very funny seeing very old people say bad words... it's so unexpected behavior that after the temporary shock you have to see the humor in it.
Would I approve it... no Dose it persuade me... not Did it make me chuckle... yes.
For the record... I too like both candidates but I'm going with Obama. I know that all politicians lie and say what they think specific groups want to hear. My biggest problem with Romney is his religion. Reading through some of the doctrines of Mormonism is like reading a science fiction novel... I cannot put the trust of my nation in the hands of a believer in living prophets and the belief that God lives on the planet "Kolob" wherever the heck that is...lol
I don't mean to sound like a religious bigot but that is how I feel about Mormonism as well as Scientology.
Nothing like a little humor once in a while.
C'mon Habee lighten up a little. This is just a joke ad. I guess the funny thing is Romney doesn't have to do anything like this for the left to get indignant about with all the gaffs and ridiculous stuff he says seriously.
Everyone in the video is really old.
If it was an ad with soldiers saying they were going to burn down the United States, that would be another story.
It's funny this ad would produce so much outcry, when Romney's welfare ads were first of all completely dishonest, and second of all aimed at stoking racial resentment against African Americans. Everyone in that video is WHITE.
I don't watch any of the campaign adds, least of all the unofficial ones. I can't wait until my TV goes back to trying to sell me junk products instead of junk politicians.
Habee, what were you doing that caused you to stumble on this video, I want to know how to avoid it.
I know the competent people here on HP find this ad deplorable. I agree that I do not think Obama had any idea about this ad. I know someone suggested it was done in fun, Sorry, it was not done in fun. It was made and funded by moveon.org and we all know in what bed they lay.
I do not mind factual honest attack ads during campaigns. But vile trash like this one has no place in the political landscape. Unfortunately, this season it is not the first threatening ad to come out. It does not matter to me if Obama knew about it prior to coming out, he knows now and should demand it be removed. He will not because he has not demanded any of the prior ones be taken down. He always uses the excuse "I cannot help what PACs do" . Neither does Romney, but when ads have come out that are over the line, he demands they e taken down and they are.
On a side note, if they want to watch me having sex, OK. They will either learn something they wish they knew when they were younger, or watching might kill them LOL. It was disturbing though the old lady who said she would watch even if she was related to you.
hm.m.....do conservatives support THIS ad...
Mitt Romney’s campaign is running a new ad in Florida that claims Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro’s niece would support President Barack Obama.The spot shows a clip of Chavez saying that if he were American, “I’d vote for Obama.”

The ad isn't for Obama. It's against voter suppression as a targeted means to steal the election for Romney.
Which is a topic that is very much real.
The ad is a bit shocking, yes.
That's what keeps your attention.
Reminds me of the times I've heard my parents and in-laws and their Greatest Generation friends come out with some doozie words/phrases I didn't know they knew.
We seem to believe old people are sweet, docile and senile and can be fooled.
Not so. They've lived through things we will (knock on wood) never, ever in our lifetimes.
Do I support an ad that grabs people by the nuts and says, "Wake up before it's too and don't let voter suppression happen in America"?
I think it's a great ad. Young people don't give us geezers credit for having any sense or life experience. Believe me, if you're over seventy, you know things that would curl a teenager's hair.
I'm an independent, so I don't vote for liberals or progressives. I just vote against every republican I can. They'd be alright if they would just stay away from my religion and my bedroom.
I am just kinda curious.
Is it your belief that Mitt Romney could not possibly be elected President unless he cheated?
Really! And he won't be elected even though he's lied like a rug.
Did I say that?
I didn't mention Romney in my post at all.
The majority of the voter suppression efforts have occurred at the state level. States with GOP governors and secretaries of state.
Surely you know that, right?
Although the Romney campaign is also getting into the act with their poll watcher instructions in Iowa (see link) and Wisconsin. And possibly other states... just haven't been documented yet.

I noticed at about 9am today that each time I look at any Hub, I get an ad filling my screen at first. Is this a new feature of HP? Thanks. I'm not clicking ads, honest!

Is this true? Of course, you have to consider the source - a far right network, MSNBC. (insert sarcasm here)http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/ … _info.html

To all of the Republican supporters .... Are you in the least bit worried about Romney's professed "non-worry" for the poorest Americans??

What do you think about Mitt Romney being the first president in U.S. History to have millions stashed in offshore Tax Havens. You know I saw this tonight and it really bothers me that we keep letting people like this run for the US President. I'll tell you right up front that I don't support the...

Presidential candidate Mitt Romney said last week that Obama has a secret agenda for his second term. I'm wondering what that is. Romney did not say. Or is this the old psychological trick of projecting your fault on the other guy. Is it Mitt who has the secret agenda? I surely don't know. Perhaps,...

Is Romney a bold face liar when he claims Obama's federal spending is unprecedented?The facts are as follows: Reagan '82 - 85 federal spending was 8.7 and 86 - 89 4.9. Bush I 5.4 and Bush II 7.3 - 8.2. Clinton was 3.2 - 3.9 and Obama 1.4 on government spending. Without talking about...
