Ad Watch: Subtle Attacks

We have new ads out by both the Tories and the Liberals. Both have picked their issue and gone on the attack.

Conservatives: As the old saying goes, if you repeat something enough, it becomes true. On the bright side, there's no mention of the coalition...

Liberals: The Liberals have also gone neg, launching a new Health Care spot last night. Like the ad above, the Tory position has certainly been stretched to make the point, but I do like the audio and visuals.

  • Subtle like a hammer.

    Did you know Ignatieff will raise taxes?

  • Did you know Harper DID raise taxes, payroll taxes, probably the biggest job killer tax-wise.

    The IPOD stuff is pure BS. That has been demonstarted clearly that not one person from any party has said that.

  • Sorta-kinda-not really on topic comment/link:

    Vaughn is a strange place this election isn't it.

  • I'd rather raise taxes than debt.

  • I thought the Liberal ad was better. It seems to have gotten higher marks. The Con ad seemed a bit like a This Hour has 22 Min or Rick Mercer send up of a Conservative ad.

    I don't have cable so I don't see the ads normally.

    Health Care is a good topic for the Liberals. It may be their only hope. But the NDP can claim it too Tommy Douglas and all.

  • Health Care accord is signed through 2014. Why are we wasting our time with this stuff when there is many other topics to nail harpo on.

  • Dave B - Well, if Harper's asking for a majority, then he'll be the PM to renegotiate the deal.

  • None of the parties can claim health care. In the past, the ones that managed to get into power all did the same thing - throw more money at it.

    The problem is that the aging population apparently represents a ticking time bomb. So we're stuck with our heads in the sand until
    a) Someone comes up with a solution that actually addresses the problem, or
    b) Someone effectively refutes the existence of the problem

    I'm of the mind that the problem is real (although would be happy to be proven wrong). So from my perspective, all politicians have adopted the expedient (and cowardly) approach of ignoring it.

  • It's all wrong what you're writing.

  • It's appropriate time to make a few plans for the future and it is time to be happy. I have read this post and if I may I want to suggest you some attention-grabbing issues or tips. Perhaps you can write subsequent articles relating to this article. I wish to read even more things about it!
