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?

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.

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.


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.

The article wont load on my phone but from the comments i think it is missing some facts.

Here is the chain of events:
She sells footage to a stock company.
Obama buys it for add.
She sees it in add and gets all pissy.
She calls obama folks who say they need to look into it and will get back to her.
She gets pissier that whatever random staffer couldnt immediately pull the add and calls the gop asking to put out a press release.
Obama is like damn chick we said wed get back to you, anyways it only had 1 day left so by the time we could pull it, it will be done.
Gop: but you forgot to take it off you tube! Why does obama hate small business!

Btw her deli is in the middle of a ghetto in a hippy market. Dont get me wrong, i shop there, but for the life of me i cant imagine a worse way she could of handled this. Would it of been that hard to quietly ask them to get rid of it? If business really is down over it, put a sign up saying while you are flattered for the national exposure your company is focused on providing quality meats and cheeses and does not endorse any candidate.

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.

Almost as big of an asshole as people who think that using commercial stock footage is "dragging her business against her will into a political fight". I guess the thing I personally don't understand is the willful stupidity of people who want to see controversy where none exists. If she didn't want her store used in videos, there was a simple way to avoid it. But once you sell the rights to something, you give up all ability to complain about what it's used for. But then, without people like you, my job as Agent Provocateur of meaningless arguments would be a lot more difficult, so thank you.

FTFA: A small business owner in a crucial swing state has found herself losing business from loyal customers due to her ad being featured in a Mitt Romney campaign ad. 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.

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.

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.

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.

According to the article: A store manager knew about the filming, Krause-McDonnell said, but was told it was for a survey on riot doors, those metal garage-type doors that pull down and lock to protect storefronts. That might be true, said Caleb Faux, director of the Hamilton County Democratic Party, who researched the ad confusion and spoke with Obama campaign officials in Columbus.

So the headline is misleading, submitter, the article doesn't say how the Obama campaign responded.

According to the article: "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."

All we know is that the Hamilton County Republican Party somehow got involved and escalated the issue.

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.

AnEvilGuest: StopLurkListen: See this release you signed? 'Organ Donor'?
--yes but --
Sorry, we're taking your liver. [pulls out a saw]

Is this why you won't sign?
you think someones going to stop you on the street and take your liver?
Please educate yourself, it doesn't work that way and there are waiting lists full of very sick and needy people.


That's not how that Monty Python skit goes...

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.
