  1. I like it, but think the music and sound effects are a bit much. It telegraphs a "political ad" instead of being more like a news report (which I think viewers would be more responsive to).

  2. I think trying to make it look more like a news report would look too much like trying to pass it off as a news report. This is a political ad that at least frankly presents itself as such.

  3. It would be nice if they explained who Joe Barton and Michael Steele are. They are hardly household names.

  4. Well, when you have the record Democrats have, you'd better start attacking. A positive campaign ain't going to persuade anyone.

  5. Someone in the Democratic Party made a political ad that doesn’t look like a thinly-disguised PowerPoint presentation! I hope that person doesn’t get fired for such non-conformism….
