All In All We're Just Another Bump In The Road

I doubt Pink Floyd would have given permission to use the Another Brick in the Wall soundtrack, but that is what came to my mind when I saw this advertisement being run by Mitt Romney.

What do you think?  Is Romney capable of making the transition from "nice guy" to the type of fighter we need to defeat Obama?

I like the ad, and it proves a point I've made here before. Republican candidates can stand out and build support without pulling an Ed Rollins and dumping all over perceived rivals.

The ad fits into Romney's narrative that he is best equipped to handle the jobs situation, but also goes after Obama not other Republicans.

  1. I like the basic idea, but the schtick of a phrase repeated over and over as we jump from person to person has become cliched and annoying.

  2. We are looking for an authentic conservative, not the latest remodeled big government liberal like Romney. It's not the message, it's the messenger. Rombama is too much a part of the problem we are trying to fix.

    Also, Pink Floyd DID allow a remake of "Another Brick In The Wall". It's fantastic.


  3. If it's between Obama and Romney, I will sit out the election for the first time in my life. Both are simply bad choices and the only difference is their skin color. If Ronmney wants to be taken seriously, then he needs to demand that MA repeal Romneycare.

  4. It's a great ad. Hammers the jobs, jobs, jobs theme that will defeat Obama, using his own words and a clever concept with (I presume) real people, not actors.

    Any faults? It moves too slowly. Would be better in 60 seconds.

  5. Pretty good concept.

    But if the America's road to statist hell is paved with good intentions, Mitt Romney is just another...bump in the road.

  6. I will never vote for Mitt Romney.

    Or Newt.
    Or Ron.
    Or Suckabee if he gets back in.

  7. Wow, Phil. Don't twist your fingers off trying to type "Romney" and "Obama" at the same time, there.

    I like the ad. I agree, it could be just a little bit more fast-paced, but we're not talking Hollywood, here. As far as campaign ads go, it's one of the better ones I've seen yet. It has one message and it resonates: Barack Obama is the wrong man to have as president ...

    ... and Mitt Romney is the right man.
