Is it old-timey or is it "olde time" (pronounced oldee time)?

They's misceginated. Hell, they ain't even old-timey!

I would love to see a candidate light up a cigarrette while speaking.

Or a cigar.

Or a joint.

This video just serves to reinforce the adage that nothing new exists.

Having been a real observer of politics only fairly recently, the more I watch, the more I realize that it's the exact same bullshiat every election; the same play, but with a different set, costumes and cast.

I like how Obama apparently adopted 'Yes We Can' from Kennedy, which is featured as a sort of offhand comment in (at least) the Kennedy ad in this video.

hitler was a hardcore liberal: broads dont belong in broadcasting.

Why, that's a terrible thing. I don't know how many time I've told those boys, never call chicks broads.

That first ad was really good, but it really is just the same movie over and over again.

Well, the new guy smoked 20 joints plus took some LSD and then drove a car. While being filmed. It might not be new but that's kicking it up several notches.

Exactly the same? Can you imagine "high interest policy" being used in a campaign ad today? The electorate has become far less interested in issues.

Guy from 1964 talking about how he felt the Republicans made a mistake in pretending to support a self contradicting and incomprehensible candidate with a penchant for stating the obvious for the sake of party unity was hilarious. Glad things are different 44 years later.

My fellow Twin-Cities residents: Does the voice over in the Dukakis ad sound familiar? Sounds like Tom Barnard to me.

To be fair, for it's day, Eisenhower's ad wasn't that bad. It looked like he was trying to woo women by making them feel important.
 
2008-09-23 12:42:51 PM
I can't believe how oppressed women were, then.

Cyborg77: Gov. Palin, I served with Hillary Clinton. I knew Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton was a friend of mine. Governor, you're no Hillary Clinton.

Yes that worked so well.... Lloyd was such a great VP...


lol.. had a discussion with my sister today, she asked me what I thought about McCain's choice. I asked her if there was a button in the voting booth for VP.

Use your heads.....Pick A or B....stop getting distracted.

It seems you believe that VP candidates don't or shouldn't have any impact on the election. Well, I'm sorry that you couldn't be more wrong.

I do not believe that it is too far-fetched to think that a 72 y.o. man might have a health-related issue in the next four years. Furthermore, please do not try to assert that Cheney had no power in Bush administration. So, it does matter. And if you're too dim to recognize that then head on back over to the kiddie table for a lively discussion about Transformers and Legos, and let the grownups talk.

"She is the best choice and will bring a new perspective. Anyone who criticizes her for any reason, even if you disagree with her policy is a sexist liberal woman hater" etc etc.

"Oh crap...she is hurting more than helping now......VP'S DON'T MEAN ANYTHING!!11!!"

And it's pretty important when the candidate is near the end of the average human life span and has suffered from various health problems.

Great video. I didn't realize Obama stole Kennedys campaign slogan. But if people listened to Ike, maybe our children wouldn't be mindless thugs. "Get in the kitchen and make me a sammich woman and learn them kids some respect!".

At the end of the video, there's a URL livingroomcandidate.org (new window) that has all kinds of political ads from 1952 to 2008.

The first Eisenhauer ad from '52 looks like one of those dancing hot dog ads they'd show at the drive-in theater during intermission.

Johnson's ads from '64 remind me of Bush's scare-mongering ads from '04.

Oddly enough, Reagan's ads from '80 remind me of Obama's ads from right now, even down to the speeches about hope while wearing rolled-up shirt sleeves without a coat or tie.

The closer I got to the ads from the present, though, I started getting depressed, and closed it out.

The kid in the glasses in the Ford ad looks like Ralphie from Christmas Story...
