Once again, both of the major presidential campaigns served up new political ads this week - so we're showcasing them for you here.
First up, the Obama campaign in their latest ad pivoted from focusing on the failures of Mitt Romney during his time at Bain Capital, to Mr. Romney's record of failure during his time as governor of Massachusetts:
As usual, President Obama's team did more than just make a slick and truthful ad. They also backed up that ad with a fact-based website and a five-page fact sheet supporting the claims made in their ad.
In fact, Team Obama's ad was so filled with facts about Mitt Romney, a whole pile of Republicans also are echoing President Obama's statements:
Team Obama also released a fact-filled series of ads this week in Spanish, including this one:
On the other side, Mitt Romney's latest ad, wasn't nearly as fact-based as those from the Obama camp. Frankly, it was filled with lies:
As Michael Grunwald of Time magazine pointed out, Romney's ad tried to claim that the stimulus President Obama pushed for and won, was a massive failure - which, in fact, is a lie.
Mr. Romney's lies surrounding this ad didn't stop there, though.
While Romney secretly set up a press conference onto the grounds of the former headquarters of Solyndra, so that hecklers and protestors couldn't find him, the Romney campaign sent protestors purposely to an Obama campaign event in Boston, with David Axelrod. Then the arrogant yet cowardly Mr. Romney attempted to claim that was fair play, since he'd been heckled at his own campaign events before.
Unsurprisingly, while Mitt was at Solyndra, he also attempted to resurrect the GOP lie about Solyndra - that even Republicans in Congress gave up on last year, when they had to admit it was a lie.
With all the lying and arrogance Mr. Romney was radiating, we almost forgot Mitt's other big lie to the media at his Solyndra event - that an Inspector General had testified that President Obama had steered contracts of companies like Solyndra to Mr. Obama's friends, family, and campaign donors. What Mitt Romney failed to mention was that during his time as governor of Massachusetts, then-Gov. Romney shoveled public dollars to private firms headed by Romney campaign donors - firms that that then failed, much like Solyndra.
Maybe the rest of the media should actually dig into that truthful fact just a little bit more.
The Romney campaign also put out yet another "Day One" ad this week, saying that you should vote for Romney not because it would be a good idea - but because it would make you feel better:
Finally, this wouldn't be an "Ad Blitz" article focused on lies without a long-form video lie from those champion liars at Fox "News" - which is exactly what the team at "Fox And Friends" created:
Even if the cowards at Fox yanked their pro-Romney, anti-Obama ad from their website, the Fox staffer who took credit for creating this last ad didn't get promoted. He lost his job at Fox - and then lost the job he had been offered at CNN.
If we thought the folks at Fox fired the producer who made their "ad" because they have any ethical standards, we'd say so.
We're not saying that - or anything even close.
