Let The Whatever-Billion-Dollar Rumpus Begin! (Back To Restore Our Future Edition)

Oxymoronic Super PAC Restore Our Future has restored its umpteen-million-dollar ad campaign, which had previously blowtorched Rick Perry, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, and any hope of a rational presidential campaign.

From Politico’s Playbook:

EXCLUSIVE – Restore Our Future, pro-Romney super PAC, begins its biggest ad buy ever in terms of dollars (Olympic buy had same number of states, 11): “Another Month,” $10.48 million, running tomorrow through Aug. 21 in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin.

–Female announcer: “Another month. Even MORE Americans jobless.  If you had President Obama’s record, what would YOU do? Would you joke? [Obama clip:] ‘Shovel ready was not as, uh, shovel ready as we expected.’ Deny reality? [Obama clip:] ‘We tried our plan, and it worked.’  Even insist? [Obama clip:] ‘The private sector is doing fine.’ Or do what Obama’s allies are doing now — launch ‘shameful,’ ‘dishonest’ attacks? With NO record to run on, it’s the ONLY strategy Obama has left.”

The spot:


Translation: We’ve gone negative because he’s gone negative.

This isn’t the Seinfeld election.

It’s the M.C. Escher election.

  1. The whole system is a crock. I live in a state from which my taxes subsidize at least 30 other states, yet my vote will essentially be meaningless on Nov. 6., when a few voters in a few states (many of them subsidized by me) will decide the election, and therefor how every department of government controlled by the executive branch will operate for at least the next four years. This will happen regardless of the national popular vote, and after those few states have been bombarded with a billion dollars worth of TV ads, mostly paid for by a handful of zillionaires — one of whom is currently under investigation for violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.

    Meanwhile, the VP candidate in both parties — someone vaulted to the top of the national political scene, and who could well become president — is picked by each party’s candidate.

    How is this democracy?
