This just in: Conservative commentators report feeling betrayed by Andy Griffith's endorsement of Obamacare.
Oh, please. A man's got to do what a man's got to do. And I hope you'll never catch me decrying capitalism. For God's sake, flog me if you do.
But what of the fact the Obama Administration spent $700,000.00 of your and my money on his health care PR campaign? For an Andy Griffith advertisement specifically intended to sell us on the already-crammed-down, boot-on-our-throats Obamacare law?
What's up with that?
Look, I'm all for a presidential bully pulpit, namely because it doesn't cost me anything.
But this stupid ad is even worse than the millions Obama spent buying signs he hoped would say, "Funded By: American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, Barack Obama, President." It appears he settled on the less persuasive, "Putting America to Work" silliness. But still!
Hells bells. With all due respect sir, how exquisitely stupid do you think we are?
Anyway, here's O's expensive ad. At $700k, I'd say Andy made out like a bandit. How did O fare? Well, sir, if you want a snowball's chance in hell of selling us on this nonsense, you might get yourself a new ad agency -- preferably a non-governmental one.
