@Funk. I apologize but your post showed up blank on my cell phone. The commercial is funded by the right and Koch brothers. I watched a segment about how it was made and funded. It's a slap in the face to all Americans;regardless of party affiliation. I will do additional research and post more information.
@Funk. an article that documents who is behind the creepy commercial.
Well done, again PN. I am just not sure how the very fair, balanced and total Truth folks on these pages can handle it!!! (think Jack Nicholson here Conservatives)
I'm not surprised the left doesn't like this ad. It uses the exact same type of tactics they have used against Republicans and GOP goals/objectives.
But this is what happens when the parties try to outdo each other in "creepiness."
BAHAHAHA!!! Uncle Sam & his speculum peering into all the dark recesses of your life ;) (as a woman I can get away with that comment) Let's be honest political ads/messages crossed the 'line in the sand' of decency so long ago that we all have to watch an ad at least twice to figure out who the 'message' is from & for; candidate, party, PAC, special interest, assasins...
A friend is an Assisant Attorney General for the fine State of Virginia and fancies herself a feminist I'll have to get her take on this 'commercial' as she sees Obama-care as the greatest social changer since sliced bread.
As for myself even on a second watching even knowing the context perhaps because I spent many nights in my teens & 20's watching Monty Python & early SNL I still find humour in this PLUS I love the homage to NSA via the use of the 'security camera'.
Graeme: I agree. The left goes wacky whenever the right does them one better. They've had PLENTY of "creepy" ads. As they say, "offensiveness" (or creepiness) is in the eye of the beholder. This ad is tame compared to some of the stuff I've seen on SNL, and - IMHO - Bill Maher (and his "humor") is far more creepy.
Here is one yall might like to read:
I realize that for some Obamacare might be a good deal. But for the other 85% of us - and for the U.S. economy in general - it's bad legislation. That's the point that always gets overlooked in the discussion. The goals of providing health care to those who might not otherwise be able to get it is admirable, but it's HOW they go about it that I - and a majority of the citizens of this country - have a problem with.
Also, I'll never give up harping about how this President squandered this opportunity to really make a difference on JOBS AND THE ECONOMY when he owned both houses of Congress in his first term. Instead, he cashed in all of his chips and dedicated all energy and political capital to this flawed legislation.
...as to ObamaCare, it's stuff like this that bothers me:
PLUS - the IRS can't seem to do anything right - except target and delay conservative tax-exempt organizations from doing their thing. Now they've futzed up the management of ObamaCare implementation funds:
Sebe, researcher par excellence! The full picture has still yet to come together don't ya think? That, in and of itself, can make many a premium payer have sweaty palms.(how bout that friends and neighbors...a liberal Democrat maybe not exuding over the top exuberance re: BHO signature legislation!!!)
But, alas, that's about as much negativity coming from this Liberal regarding the Commander and Chief's ACA.
Surely no one was expecting me to find a dump load of wrong on this piece of legislation.
For the record, as more and more is revealed...I believe it's all gonna work out for ALL Americans.
After a great deal of thought I realized that it just didn't seem fair for me to have all the 'giggles' to myself with the Female Version of "Creepy Uncle Sam" so gentlemen for your viewing pleasure I offer you the Male Version of "Creepy Uncle Sam"
(you can all thank me later ;)
@Graeme: I was expecting a turn yer head and cough thing. This one was good tho. Conservatives will do anything it takes to stop BHO and the ACA.
I think that all the hoopla about what the ACA boogey man was going to do the 85% of us is gonna turn out being a transparent harmless spook not visible by the naked eye nor seen in American's
pocketbooks taking valuables.
Graeme: You're right - I'll thank you later. ;>]
Jimmy: The reports are coming in already. See my prior posts. Tomorrow, I'll put up a blog about an editorial the other day in the President's home town newspaper which rails on about the "mysteries" of Obamacare. Stay tuned - you're gonna love it....
