The Disclaimer


Everyone has fretted over how the new disclaimer laws will work for candidates. The candidates must say “My name is X and I approve of this message.” Well, the President’s ads are out and I think this plays to an incumbency advantage.

On the first one, he gets to end it saying, “I’m President Bush and I approve this message.”

It makes it powerful.

  • Using scenes of the WTC towers also helps him use a tragedy to his advantage. Nevermind the widows and friends who died there. It’s all about how Bush proved his leadership abilities and then threw the country into a completely unnecessary war. Maybe instead of saying he approves this message he should say, “I’m President Bush and I am a tool of corporate interests and evangelicals.”
