Where Did the Obama Stimulus Money Go?

New ad, pretty good.

The media never stops chattering about Obama's ads. I think that's due to rooting-interest bias -- they want Obama to win, so they focus on those things that make an Obama win more likely.

But this ad seems pretty effective. And "offshoring" is included here, too.

But they never mention Romney's ads.

Semi-related, Kathryn Jean Lopez thinks Romney is becoming more natural, and less programmed by risk-adverse advisers, when stumping.

I have long thought he has been ill-served by certain advisers... trying to protect the candidate from himself rather than let him be himself, completely. (He is actually a competent guy, who represents some fundamental values we used to protect and promote and even try to live, who has demonstrated forward-looking leadership more than a time or two.) And so you have had some random snapshots, without a complete vision. I think it is safe to say Romney has had enough of that. Witness... his pushback after he was booed at the NAACP last week (and the vision thing presented in most of the speech) and yesterday in Pennsylvania. Jim Geraghty provides a good synopsis of the latter in his Morning Jolt this morning. This portion, where he talks about the current administration, hits, I think, at an authentic tone going into the general election that may just be a winning one:

This is very different by the way than the Democratic party of Bill Clinton, that said that the era of big government was over. That reformed welfare — you heard that story by the way — he is trying to take work out of welfare requirement. It is changing the nature of America, changing the nature of what Democrats have fought for and Republicans have fought for.

He folds everything neatly into one of his several big themes-- this one, the "He's transforming America into something unrecognizable" theme. Which is as sound as it is racist.
