Krieghund: Wait a second...these people that won't go to her business because of stock footage in a campaign ad are the same people complaining about liberals boycotting a chicken shack, aren't they?


If, by chicken shack, you mean a multi-billion dollar corporation that doesn't care about its customers outside of the little pieces of paper in their wallets, then yes.

Lsherm: Mrtraveler01: Lsherm: The Obama campaign doesn't gain anything by giving this woman grief she doesn't want, even if they are "technically" correct in using the footage. She wants to remain apolitical, but they've made her a flashpoint.

Oh give me a farking break. She allowed it to be filmed for stock footage. Which means that it could be used for things she doesn't support.

That's how stock footage works farktard, anyone can use it, even people you don't like!

So excuse me if I don't give a flying fark that this woman feels so persecuted for being used for stock footage and being used in political campaigns she doesn't like.

Well, a literate Mrtraveler01 might have noticed my earlier post. But not YOU - YOU are so important you can't read, and you call people who can retarded. How do you feel about yourself?


No, I read your Boobies see:

Lsherm: 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.


And like I said before, IT'S FARKING STOCK FOOTAGE! She has no control over how it would be used. Why should Obama listen to her?

If she didn't want it to be used in campaign ads for candidates she doesn't like, then she shouldn't have offered to use her business to be filmed for stock footage.

So excuse me for not giving a shiat about how this woman feels about how stock footage featuring her business is being used.

deadcrickets: Lsherm: St_Francis_P: 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.

Not only that but why would she not want extra business from the attention it'd garner?


You're not kidding. All any business owner needs to do nowadays is go on Fox and say 'Obama is ruining my business' and watch the people like up, bleating about soshulism. BTW, these are the same people who mock 'cash mobs' that help mom & pop stores by popping up en masse and buying about $20 worth of stuff.

BravadoGT: It's her own fault for getting between Obama and his desires letting people use her business for stock footage.


FTFY.

beta_plus: So a small business owner losing business because a politician is using her store in a commercial is no big deal? Good thing Ms. Krause didn't build that business herself.

*Herp a derp oh snap.jpg*


Wow, even there's a legitimate gripe, you can't help but lie through your arse in order to lose all advantage.

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

According to the owner in an interview I saw, she was told the company was doing some sort of documentary or review of security doors and they wanted to film hers, which they did. The Obama campaign may be legally within its rights, but dragging her business against its will into a political fight and pissing off customers who think she's chosen sides just makes Obama look like a giant asshole. If he was smart and/or had any class he'd tell them to change the ad. The Republicans are going to use this against him until he does.

[i47.tinypic.com image 250x197]


Either that or they're just going to make a new ad, just like they've been doing every week for the past six months.

BTW, lest we forget, he's the PRESIDENT. He's doing all sorts of stuff, and one of those things is very rarely signing off on every single ad that his campaign's communications department makes. He just assumes, as do all major candidates, that the campaign isn't doing anything offensive. This ad will simply disappear as have about a hundred Obama ads this year alone.
 
2012-08-10 03:01:09 AM  
I heard 0bama personally forced her at gunpoint to give him permission to shoot the footage, and then lied about what it was being used for. He then threatened to off her family if she snitched. Luckily her family has Obamacare if someone gets hurt though. This is just typical for 0bama to do this, Chicago politics as usual.

I keep my counsel on FB. I have some people I like that lean towards pearl-clutching, vapor sniffing paranoia about the Obama's hellish path we are on. AMERICA IS DOOOOOOOOOMED! I politely ask them for facts to back their emotion up and they freak the fark out and spew Palin-ish babble. It is disturbing, actually.

Usually the folks who get the most angry will give you variations of:
- 'zer0 sat for twenty years in THAT church!' (regarding Obama)
- 'we're electing a president, not a pastor' (regarding Romney)

- Jeremiah Wright is anti-American!
- I don't know anything about what they teach, and don't care.

- Obama is a muslim! who was taught by that man for 20 years!
- Romney just has funny beliefs but he's still a christian.

- Obama is the anti-christ!
- Romney is a family man who's been married to the same woman for many years and raised a decent family.

- what he believes matters most
- how he governs matters most

- god told me to vote against him
- we can hold his feet to the fire

changing goal posts. if any of your friends were drinking the 'Dubya is a christian, this is a christian country, i won't vote for anyone who isn't christian' koolaid in prior years, but suddenly religion no longer matters to them... yeah.

/I have no idea what's going on with black, latin, asian and indian who move goal posts.

My favorite thing with the people screaming about "black liberation theology" is that they're all focused on the "black" bit while being too ignorant and stupid to know that liberation theology is little more than Christian Marxism. For all of the times that Fox, right wing talk radio, WND and all the rest have talked about Jeremiah Wright and black liberation theology, it's clear that no one, and I do mean no one, on the right has even the slightest clue what liberation theology is and none of them have bothered to find out. If there was one angle where they could have possibly waged a legitimate attack against Obama and OMGSOCIALISM!, it would be over the fact that he spent 20 years listening to a pastor who has Marxist theology, but they're so busy being racist that even after four years they still miss that completely.

2012-08-10 05:37:33 AM  
Am I the only one that is kind of tired of candidates white knighting small business? I mean, it's great if someone starts a business but I notice that small businesses around here are the ones paying minimum wage, using illegal aliens, not providing health care, and often times providing higher prices and worse service than their bigger competitors. Not to mention many chisel on sales taxes. Many or most small businesses are upstanding, ethical members of the community but there are just as many losers among that bunch as any other. Maybe more.

Ultimately, though, I think a lot of the "small business" focus, especially by Republicans, is to get Americans to go along with tax cuts and deregulation that primarily benefits large business.

intelligent comment below: 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.

Farking commerce, how does it work? This is obviously Obummers fault! Now they should reshoot because this idiot store owner was clueless and her customers are bigoted partisan fools.


A better idea would be for her to have a bunch of homos get mad at her for some reason. Then she can have an appreciation day that will cause people to line up around the block to get her delicious sammiches. The upkick in her business will last for weeks.

teeny: I can sympathize with the owner a little. If I sold stock footage, it wouldn't have immediately occured to me that it would be used in anything controversial like a campaign ad. With all the Chick-Fil-A attention whoring going on right now, I can respect a business that prefers to remain neutral. While it was 100% legal to use the footage, it would make them look extra awesome if they removed it anyway.

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.

So a small business owner losing business because a politician is using her store in a commercial is no big deal? Good thing Ms. Krause didn't build that business herself.

That being said, the first paragraph or two of the article is dripping with such concentrated douche juice that I can barely stand it. Fark you and your whiny persecution complex.


Yeah, she's so upset about the ad, and she'd be just as angry if it was a Romney ad...but she's not asking the GOP to leave her out of it.

"I've been put into a position I didn't ask for," she said Wednesday after the Hamilton County Republican Party sent out an email about the ad that accused Democrats of not responding to the owner's concerns. "I'm a little angry."

She'd be just as angry, she said, if it were an ad for Mitt Romney.


And she goes on Fox News to complain, but still doesn't ask the Republicans to stop using her story for the campaign.
 
2012-08-10 09:01:31 AM  
Obama should have the decency to remove the footage if the shop owner wants it out. Douche move.
 
2012-08-10 09:06:05 AM  
Never mind - she asked for the Republican party's help.

Alex Triantafilou, the local Republican chairman, said Krause-McDonnell contacted him initially for legal help. He told her he led the local Republican Party and could help her send out the press release via email. He did that Wednesday, but said Thursday he hadn't talked to her since.

And when did she contact the Obama campaign to complain?

Faux said he first spoke with Krause-McDonnell on a Friday night and called the campaign, which got back to him by Sunday. They couldn't do anything about the ad over the weekend, he said, but told him it would be ending anyway Monday.

Krause-McDonnell, 52, said she still saw the ad after Faux told her the campaign said it would be off the air. It is no longer airing but can be seen on YouTube.

It seems her customers believe she is a Romney backer, but in fact she prefers to keep politics out of her business. And so this business owner demanded that the Romney camp either pull the ad or blur her deli's name from the frames that it's in. The campaign, she says, ignored her pleas. -NewsBusters, August 09, 2012

Awesome.

Since the Republicans continue to quote Democrats out-of-context, using single sentences or even sentence fragments at a time, I think it'd be nice to take this entire paragraph and re-post it, with the citation, as many times as possible around the web. I mean hey, they taught the left exactly how it's done.

rufus-t-firefly: Never mind - she asked for the Republican party's help.

Alex Triantafilou, the local Republican chairman, said Krause-McDonnell contacted him initially for legal help. He told her he led the local Republican Party and could help her send out the press release via email. He did that Wednesday, but said Thursday he hadn't talked to her since.

And when did she contact the Obama campaign to complain?

Faux said he first spoke with Krause-McDonnell on a Friday night and called the campaign, which got back to him by Sunday. They couldn't do anything about the ad over the weekend, he said, but told him it would be ending anyway Monday.

Krause-McDonnell, 52, said she still saw the ad after Faux told her the campaign said it would be off the air. It is no longer airing but can be seen on YouTube.

So some disingenuous right wing site, img0.fark.net, selectively edited an article to suit their political agenda.

It amazes me how dumb these people are. Do they really think nobody will notice they selectively clipped the article from another source or are they just filling the trough for the locals to feed from?

Cat Food Sandwiches: Obama should have the decency to remove the footage if the shop owner wants it out. Douche move.



And of course, we have proof that they HAVE refused, right?

Brick-House: Ad fails to mention that businesses are struggling because of Obummers policies.

Obamacare
Taxes
EPA

to name a few


I am happy to say that, because of Obama, the "ignore" button is at it's highest usage in 12 years!
