saw it on RedEye with Greg Gutfeld

Saw this ad on RedEye and thought it was a riot. I agree with others than Ron Paul's ads are the best of this campaign season. They are fast paced, funny, and this one in particular appealed to baby-boomers (with use of words like "groovy"). Keep up the good work, ad makers.

Excellent Ad!

While those who are awake can handle the truth, the sleepers have trouble. They need to be eased into it in a comfortable manner. This add points out how ridiculous Santorum is. He sells himself as a conservative, but is in fact a liberal.

To all you claiming attack ads make Ron Paul look bad, I suggest that might be the MSM talking through you. These guys aren't sports stars or fashion models. They are running to be President of the our country! That's a big deal. And the truth is, like it or not, many people don't research the candidates. So when Santorum says he will cut spending, people like they. Informing him that he is unlikely to follow through based on his history is valuable to the health of our nation. You don't like negativity? Go watch a feel good Hollywood flick. I for one want people to know that Santorum is lying. People who's vote my Life depends on.

Ridiculous Ad

MSM? I don't watch/read the "is the head dead yet" MSM hyperbole.

So - you think that a silly cartoon making fun of Rick Satanorum is going to inspire the American people to vote for our serious, Constitution honoring Presidential Candidate, Ron Paul, who wants to bring us Freedom, PEACE, and Prosperity?

Maybe you have watched too many Disney movies and the intelligence quotient in cartoons are your gray matters highest form of entertainment.

The problem with neg ads is Romney....

One of the points of contentions that people have had is that all these ads work more in favor Romney or don't deal with him, when he should be a competitor and espouses establishment platform of increased debt and pro-Fed more than any other candidate.

This might be because Romney is so weak

The following are Romney's change in votes from 2008 to 2012 as a percentage.

Iowa -0.64% *
New Hampshire +7.25%
South Carolina +12.7%
Florida +15%
Nevada -1.1%
Minnesota -24.36%
Colorado -25%
Maine -12.66% *

* Denotes proven election fraud in Romney's favor, not adjusted for in these numbers.

Voters have already decided Not Romney. But some have mistakenly shifted towards Santorum.

Don't fool yourself - Romney has never been weak.

Voters have not decided on 'not romney' - that was a term coined by establishment. Romney is first or second choice for most voters since the beginning - nothing has changed. Don't use that as an excuse for going soft on establishment.

Shifting has happened and that doesn't mean you drop the liberty platorm and doesn't mean you lay off Romney when the shifting goes back to Romney.

voters will settle for

voters will settle for romney, but they are definitely wanting someone more conservative. once we get rid of the "distractions", we'll be that person.

Why lie to yourself - Paul will not be that choice by default.

Neocons/status quo voters will not go for Paul just because you deem anyone other than Romney to be a 'distractor' and not serious about the country. They would only be convinced if they understand more of Paul's platform. It has been proven consistently with voters jumping from one neocon to another like Perry and Cain and Santorum.

Newt and Santorum are going nowhere - they will be there thru the Tampa convention. So, better find another strategy to win other than find ways to eliminate them, as strategies to eliminate them simply have not worked. Perhaps if you want to eliminate Romney, that might be better for being 'that cons choice'.

Lighten up! Sometimes a good laugh from a good Ad can do a lot

I got a good laugh on this one especially the bigfoot part at the end. It lampoons Santorum without looking over dramatic, depressing or mean.

Paul hands down has the best ads of everyone in this race!

If you all think you can make a better ad....then MAKE IT! Everyone suddenly thinks they're experts and can second guess the campaign yet from my point of view they have made AMAZINGLY insightful decisions full of strategy this election.

By far the best run campaign of anyone in the race.

By the way, I have a great sense of humor. . .however, like I wrote, this isn't funny.

It's Not Funny

. . .to assassinate the good character of a man, who for 30 years has presented himself as a gentleman - only to have some super pac obliterate his good character with their attack ads.

Really?! Because some super pac is in control of the money - you think that no matter what they do - it's OK?!

HELLO?! Then leave Obama in office or vote for one of the other three - since they'll be in power, no doubt any decision they make will be the right one.

I thought we were the group that questions - not the ones who "baaaa" and say "Thank you, Sir, may I have another?!"

Ron Paul has so many redeeming qualities far and away above those other three. Why not show why he is different - the POSITIVES - not how he can be just like them. . .that makes him one of them.

As for me - I think the ad is deplorable and a sad commentary on us.

Clearly you are listening to your heart

Just what Ron Paul urges us to do. There you will find "Natural Law". Jefferson who wrote "We hold these truths self-evident" said, 50 years later...we could only write that which was in our hearts!

Have you noticed some of my recent comments

"With attack ads, etc..

All he has done is lose ground!

Wake Up!

It's not your character or mine that has brought light to the American stage but Ron Paul's. Let it Shine!"

or

"With the expenditure of all our hard earned dollars on attack ads, most people are turned Off by the GOP. My own children knew better when they were 7 or 8 years old.

The establishment owes Mr. Tate & company a personal debt of gratitude for spending the peoples dollars on putting giant holes in the ship of Hope."

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. Martin Luther King Jr.

Made quite obvious at this point

I've been asking for about 3 months why Ron Paul never touches Romney who had been the front runner this entire time. Ad after ad Paul targeted lesser candidates. Many excuses have been thrown out, but Ron Paul has effectively confirmed he's in league with Romney. This is a shame.

If we take Romney down, the

If we take Romney down, the "not-Romney's" will gather around someone else and possibly settle for them. as it stands, they'll settle for romney but are looking for an alternative. so long as we keep exposing the others for who they are, the majority of people will come our way.

Its Funny But Not Serious Enough To Grab People

We need hard hitting adds that will strike fear into people showing how the Government is stripping us of our Constitutional rights at rapid rate and makes it clear that voting for anyone other than RP is a vote for status Quo and the path to our destruction as a free people.

Agreed

I like your idea. Scare the hell out of people with something different like the truth. And our only hope is elect a man of vision and wisodm--Dr. Ron Paul.

Not a good ad

You don't need words like "groovy" (groovy??) and "dude" to appeal to younger voters. You just need the right message and the truth, both of which Ron Paul has on his side.

(I hope people in the Paul campaign read comments from Daily Paul.)

As much as I hate to be critical...

I agree with you. I was little put off by the words "dude' and "groovy," too. They almost detract from the valid points the ad is trying to make.

Love Bigfoot at the End

Fake!

There was some "Pro-Life"

There was some "Pro-Life" organization that tried to claim Ron Paul was lieing because it accused Santorum of supporting abortions. I don't think they watched the ad, all it said was that Santorum gave money to planned parenthood -- which he did and even bragged about as recently as a week ago.

Giving money to planned parenthood is

not supporting abortions?

From wikipedia.

Planned Parenthood is the largest provider of reproductive health services in the United States, which include contraceptives and abortions, among other services

LOL OH Yeah it is!

Many people don't know much about the founding of planned parenthood and need to do some research. They'd be shocked if they did.

Planned Parenthood - Abortion

If you look up their "action fund" - I have the web site location if anyone wants it. . .

Planned Parenthood performed over 300,000 (yes, you're seeing that right) abortions in 2009 and 2010. Over a half a million babies are dead, within two years, due to Planned Parenthood's abortion mills.

They are the #1 abortionist entity in the USA.

Congratulations to Rick Satanorum - you have blood of innocent children on your hands by your generous donation.

He endorsed Specter...

...not only for Senate but for President. He actively campaigned for Specter. He also voted to confirm Sotomayer.

This pro-life organization either doesn't do their homework on candidates or their main issue isn't really abortion after all.

Warmonger Evangelical decision 2012

I love this ad. It is well done, quick, has a singular message, and factual. Others have good ideas about Ron Paul's record, but should be done in an another ad with a singular, focused point. Santorum's rise is real. The warmonger evangelical wing wants this big government conservative, much like the wanted the Huckster. But like the Huckster, Santorum has a spending problem. The warmonger evangelicals must be reminded that if government gets bigger the less liberty individuals like themselves will have. I think the ad does this well enough.

Satanorum

We won't rise by tearing others down. . .we will only sink further.

I've been watching the polls on Real Clear Politics for the last three months - obviously you haven't. When the silly/angry/attack ads started - the man who could save this nation - RON PAUL - started going down in the polls. To date his decline hasn't stopped.

Unless we demand that the ads hit people with positives (you remember: PEACE, PROSPERITY, FREEDOM?)and the truth about Congressman Paul - we're shooting ourselves in the both feet.

The ad is good, sorry Reminant patriot

Dr. Paul must do the job the corporate media will not do. And that is show and repeat over and over again the records of the other candidates. I guess as soon as the media does their job, Dr. Paul can move on to your suggestion. However, the American people need to be educated on who they our actually voting for. The ad accomplishes all of that with a fresh look. I loved it!!
