    Now THAT is an excellent ad!! Good work!

    Very good ad. I think the most important thing we can do to build support from conservatives is to frame this as a national security issue, which it plainly is. I can only hope that more ads like this will put immense pressure on Republican Senators to act.

  4. Doug Bostrom says:

    How about an ad (who to do it?) tying unemployment and economic misery with extreme weather events, such as the Tennessee disaster Joe has been highlighting?

  5. BobSmith says:

    I wonder if this ad is shown during busy and/or conservative leaning programs.

    Absolutely brilliant but a little bit of unintended irony…

    ““When I signed on with the National Guard, I did it to help protect America from our enemies…”

    a. coal and multi-national oil companies are the enemy and

    b. deniers (especially those paid by coal and multi-national oil companies) are the enemy – and plenty of them are American.
