Ad of the day

In this day and age political ads have become a form of art. A good political ad can be hilarious and still deliver a big blow to a candidate at the same time. Mix in some high production values and you have a memorable ad that'll get a ton of airplay. Below is an add that meets some of that criteria. In this ad for American Crossroads,a SuperPAC lead by Karl Rove, we get to see President Obama as an evil James Bond who has switched allegiances to work with the Russians. The whole concept stems from a hot mic moment between President Obama and President Medvdev of Russia in which the president explained that he'll be more flexible to negotiate,make deals and pass laws if he gets reelected. Click on the video below to see one of the better ads in the last week or so.
