    Is it just me, or does it just sound like our politicians are just using their major speeches as commercials?

    The moment a politician believes that the government's mission is to oversee the economy and create jobs, then naturally he will act as an advocate for certain industries. Jobs depend on consumers, after all. And his entire constituency can be seen as one big consumer.

    To me that is what campaigning has turned into. A big commercial VOTE FOR ME!

    It is ridiculous.  It's all about degrading their opponents and tooting their own horn.  It's one long self-promoting commericial mixed with a little slander of the others.
