This commercial (H/T: Powerline) was originally made by George Soros' lapdog, MoveOn, to run during the Superbowl in 2004, but for various reasons (including its then very political slant), it did not make the cut.
My, my -- how times change. For some unfathomable reason, George Soros and MoveOn did not even consider submitting this commercial for the Superbowl ad competition this year. Please watch it, and along with me, wonder why -- are their particular bones of contention becoming increasingly irrelevant to what the rest of us can see is happening?
Here is the 30-second commercial that -- despite Soros' billions -- did not run in either 2004 or in 2012:
Meanwhile, here is a commercial (with Clint Eastwood) that did run this year. It implies that, under the Obama administration, Detroit and its automobile industry are about to launch a new "second half" initiative that will put the (Democratic) team on the scoreboard once again:
Who else but the Democrats under President Obama can claim to have turned GM and Chrysler around in these trying times? (Of course, the commercial does not mention Ford, which managed to survive the recession with its own capital and negotiated union contracts, no thanks to the President.)
And who else but the Democrats under Obama would choose to make this commercial the one they decided was best to run, instead of the one George Soros handed them in 2004?
I tell you Republicans out there
: you've got to get up early to gain a march on these Democrats.
