Intensely negative down to the black clothing. My guess is that he's trying to stir up anti-democrat feeling enough that he can win by being a Republican in a good year.

negative approach. Let's hope it doesn't get the dems too angry in that district.

Well the answer is obviously that we should lower our retirement age to 45! Take that, Greece!

hard to hear him tough, needs a bit of editing.

ya it's a bit hard to hear him, it may be too complicated too...i hope to see some really aggressive ads like Rand's robotic spider ads, from BJ

I think it's a nice ad. Price is a fixture in the district. This is not like Rand's race, an open seat where the candidates had the option of campaigning without really addressing each other but instead chose the low road. Lawson's only reason for existing as a political candidate is that Price isn't fit for the seat, so it's not "negative" for Lawson to filter his first commercial through that paradigm.

The second commercial is a bit rougher, in both quality and message. I wouldn't run it. But "I think it's time to retire David Price" is just perfect.

"I'm confused. Retire David Price so 66 year olds in America don't bailout 55 year olds in Greece? Wait, what? I want scary music with a frightening voice telling me how corrupt David Price is!!! And that he's going to eat my children and take my money if he is reelected." -Jeff Frazee

This is like a whole new style of political advertisement I've never seen. I like it.

The tone of these commercials is excellent, it portrays Lawson as a man of the people coming forth to stop David Price.

Good job B.J.

i agree (for the the the retirement age ad). it's a very simplified argument, but laid out logically.

Delivery is a little melodramatic, makes him seem fake.

I like the message though. Democrats and Republicans alike will respond to that message.

I think they should add a picture of Greek riots in the background, and maybe make a bit more ominous music. And he should probably say retire David Price from Congress.

Isn't Lawson a doctor? He should definitely mention that in his ad about healthcare.

Agreed!

It's terribly ineffective. Voters don't want to think. See above.

It's a great commercial, it makes you stop and listen to what he's saying, although I maybe bias here. I really like this ad, it's different, and that may be what will work.

I agree that voters do not want to think but I'm not sure that means that the ad is ineffective.

The ad seems similar to the "Morning in America" Reagan ads in this regard.

Sure, about 4 times. It's pretty damn powerful. This says alot about his campaign this time around, he is focused this time to defeat Price.

I know its his first ad but I didn't really like it. IMO he should have just focused on Price and Obama wanting to bailout Greece and kept it simple.

Isn't that exactly what he did? What could he have done/said to simplify the situation further?

Those are both kickass ads.

Noo, he said something about riots & people who are retiring at 65 bailing out those that retire at 55. So it wasn't "exactly what he did."
And I'm not from the district, but to me it just wasn't a memorable ad.
