Political Holiday Ads

Huckabee's Christmas greeting really made me mad. It's expected that politicians will put out political ads at Christmas time. I didn't like Huckabee putting the subtle cross in the background of his video, and I really didn't like him denying it was there. Adding that to all of the ruined Christmas songs around, I haven't been too happy.

I'm one of those rare people who likes the season of Advent, loves to decorate and gives gifts because they make people smile and feel appreciated, instead of just because it's expected, and who thinks a lot about why I celebrate Christmas.

So, of course I'm an Obama fan, but if I'm going to have to watch a political Christmas ad, this is the kind I want to watch:

Of course, I haven't watched all of the politician's Christmas ads, but it would be really nice if there were more like this. He speaks to Christians and non-Christians (all novel!), and has a positive message that ties into both the holiday season and his campaign, without being obnoxious.


  1. Wow, I say elect Mrs. Obama.

  2. I like Obama, a lot. Thank you for posting what you do about him. Your blog has provided much insight to him in a very non-threatening manner, which I've enjoyed greatly. I find it hard to read a great number of democrat blogs because they seem to be laden with anger, resentment and emotion, short of facts. Your blog is the opposite.

    I think if Huckabee didn't notice the cross in the background of his own ad, he's an idiot.

  3. Thanks! I'm glad that I can do that. :)
