She gave permission to someone to use her place for stock footage, right? I mean, don't you have to?
 
2012-08-09 06:51:18 PM
She's boned and the Obama people don't have to do a damned thing. Nor would Romney's folks if they used it. Another non-issue stoked up by Fox and Newsbusters, partners in idiocy.

RadioAaron: She gave permission to someone to use her place for stock footage, right? I mean, don't you have to?


Sounds that way:

The scene was from stock footage bought from a Cincinnati video company, Faux said. He did not know the name of the company but said he was told by the Obama campaign that company officials said they did explain to Krause's manager that they were filming stock footage that could be purchased and used for any reason.

But since Fox is on the job, the truth will soon cease to matter.

The Obama campaign is in the right legally, but it doesn't really matter in this case. If she wants them to stop using the footage (or at least the part that identifies her business) - it's dickish to keep using it.

The owner of the store, Debra Krause-McDonnell, said that she did not give permission for her business to be shown and that some customers have told her they'll no longer shop there.

Not that the article says this business is struggling, but I wouldn't be suprised if it was - given that the owner has no idea what the contracts she signs actually mean.

Did she make a statement about the definition of marriage as well?

'Some' customers hardly counts as struggling, and who's to say she didn't pick up a few Obama supporters in the deal. I still stand by my original point however: you can't be that good of a businessman if you'll sign any damn thing put in front of you without reading it first.

France has very strict rules about that (waiver, releases for photos). Quebec also. That's all I have to offer here.

I heard from someone (a credible source) at the deli supply company that she hasn't even paid taxes for 10 years.

Ahh, no one can misrepresent an issue quite like conservatives
 
2012-08-09 09:09:41 PM
In Bizarro-world, Romney would be destroyed for this. And, of course, conservatives would never point out this nitwit let her store be filmed for stock footage.

Question. Was this ad produced by the Obama campaign, or by a PAC? I DRTFA, but she might well be complaining to the wrong people.

Disclaimer: I know nothing about this store owner or why she was upset with the Obama campaign using her store in his ad. The following is simply the first thing that popped into my head upon reading the headline.

Is it just me, or are Small Business Owners® some of the derpiest people around? I mean, I get that they're naturally going to identify more with the party that, often like them, sees nothing but the bottom line, but Jesus Christ do I really have to see this on my way to Belen every week?

You'd think that someone smart enough to start and/or run a business would at least have the minimal intelligence not to get caught up in such Teabaggery, but it seems like I see it all the time.

The 0bama campaign is the master of dickish moves, so this isn't a surprise.

besides, they don't like small businesses, so no news here. Just confirmation of what we already knew.

Opening with crap like that means you're more than a bad writer, you're also a bad person.

"Hear about X doing Y? Well you would have, but we're talking about Z! And people don't talk bad about Z because I'm a whiny little biatch with a persecution complex!"

grimlock1972: If she signed a release she has nothing and i am willing to bet she did.


Yeah, I'd be inclined to believe that this is the case. Love 'em or hate 'em, Obama's campaign team tends to be pretty on-the-ball about these things. If this is a screwup, then it's probably the only one they will have made come November.

Romney's team? Oh, they WISH their flubs were this minor.

That's it. In about 2 years after he's lost the campaign and faded back into wealthy obscurity, I will name the band "Prog Romney."
