Bush In 30 Seconds


TRIBE Member
I believe this organization is run or funded by Soros’ son. It’s a competition to see who can depict President Bush in 30 seconds most accurately. There are some really good ones for all of us to enjoy… and lament. I apologize if this has been posted already. I haven’t had a chance to go through them all. BUT I WILL!

If i was voting i'd go with "Child's Play" as being the most effective.

Bring 'em on, Imagine, and Army of One would be the runners-up.

Ad showing kids laboring to pay off deficit wins MoveOn contest

SAN FRANCISCO — Images of children toiling on a grocery line and in a tire factory coupled with a simple line of text — "Guess who's going to pay off President Bush's $1 trillion deficit?" — paid off for 38-year old Charlie Fisher of Denver, Colorado.

His ad, titled "Child's Pay," was chosen as the winner of the "Bush in 30 Seconds" television ad campaign sponsored by the online political organization MoveOn.com.

MoveOn, a liberal advocacy group boasting some 2.3 million members, announced the winning ad at a New York City gala Monday evening hosted by actress Janeane Garofolo and featuring actors Al Franken, Julia Stiles and the rap group Public Enemy.

"It was judges' favorite by far, but also our members' favorite," said Eli Pariser, MoveOn's campaigns director. "It's about the future of the country and the effects of what Bush's policies will have."

In November, MoveOn invited its members to submit ads that "best tell the truth about President Bush's failed policies." Some 1,500 amateur videographers sent in ideas, which were voted on by MoveOn members.

The 15 finalists were announced last week. The winning ad was selected by a panel of judges including Democratic consultant James Carville and filmmaker Michael Moore.

Fisher, a formerly "apolitical" Internet advertising executive who joined MoveOn after the disputed 2000 presidential election, said concern about the deficit prompted him to enter the contest.

"I wanted to point out how the Republican administration are big spenders, and it's my children and your children who are going to be footing the bill," Fisher said.

Fisher's ad and some of the runners up will air nationally on CNN from Saturday through next week, when President Bush delivers his State of the Union address, Pariser said.

The contest hasn't been without controversy. At least two submissions, comparing President Bush to Adolf Hitler, appeared on the MoveOn web site for several days in December. The ads prompted an angry denunciation from Jewish groups and Republican National Committee chairman Ed Gillespie, who called it "political hate speech."

MoveOn representatives apologized for the ad, but the organization found itself on the defensive for much of the closing week of the campaign.

"One of the postulates of this business is you have to operate in cocoon of believability and credibility," said veteran Democratic media strategist David Doak. "Ads that step over the lines are the kind of thing that you have to guard against."
