    What's with the "I'm Joe Blow and I approved this message" crap?

    Was it just someone did it, a few years ago, and all the other politicians decided "Hey, that sounds cool. I'll say that too", or was there like an ad saying "George W rapes little girls", and Gore said, "Don't blame me. I didn't approve that ad", so now they all gotta say they approve them?

    I believe back aways someone or some message was out there for a candidate and it was not approved by the candidate and a big deal was made about it.....so all this "offical sounding schtick" started.

    And this post was approved by me. :lmao2:

    A few cycles ago, they passed a law that any ads put out by an actual official campaign had to have a tag line either that said "I approve this message" or else says who put on the ad if not a campaign, so the campaign can claim "Not me!" if it pisses people off.

    It's supposed to keep the "cheap shot" and "lying" ads to a minimum but I'm not sure that works.

    The other thing is I see you live in a "battleground" state, Ohio...the national parties are spending BIG bucks on ads in your state.

    In Indiana we are seeing abolutely NO ads from Omama or Romney so far, which tells me it just might be a Romney lock, about the only ads I am seeing are Mourdock- Donnelly for Senate or Mike Pence/Gregg for Governor.

    Actually kind of quiet on the advertising here....

    I see more of that Office Max or Staples ad ( I don't even know WHO sponsored THAT ad!;)) about the two politicians abusing each other at the counter, then shaking hands over the "clean" campaign right when they show the "Honk if you had an affair with Taylor" signs and the smarmy smiling guy says "Looks Good!" all the time shaking Taylor's hand....LOL :D:D:D

    It's getting old but I STILL chuckle over it....

    Problem is I want to watch the news or whatever and the same old broken record stuff goes on and on, but I'll bet the networks like the sold out ad time at good rates.

    It's like months of Super Bowls on every channel for them :D

    I have been sick of them for the last year and a half. These people are like the stores with christmas stuff. They have been putting out christmas stuff for over a month now.
