The Daisy Ad and Today's Politics



SOME OF YOU WILL REMEMBER THE INFAMOUS "DAISY AD" USED IN THE 1964, PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN OF LYNDON JOHNSON vs BARRY GOLDWATER.  IT WAS VERY EFFECTIVE IN HELPING TO DEFEAT GOLDWATER ALONG WITH THE RECENT ASSASSINATION OF JFK SOME YEAR BEFORE.  THE COUNTRY AT THAT TIME WAS MOVING TO THE LEFT AND AS BEST I REMEMBER GOLDWATER ONLY CARRIED 5 STATES IN THE ELECTION.  ONE BEING HIS HOME STATE OF ARIZONA AND THE OTHER 4 DEEP SOUTH STATES WHO WERE IMMEDIATELY PENALIZED BY THE PASSAGE OF THE VOTER RIGHTS ACT OF 1965 WHICH SENT FEDERAL ELECTION OFFICIALS INTO THOSE STATES THAT VOTED AGAINST LBJ.  GOLDWATER WAS PAINTED AS AN EXTREMIST WHO WOULD GET US INTO A NUCLEAR EXCHANGE WITH THE SOVIET UNION AND THAT WITH OTHER FACTORS WORKED.

WE ARE NOW APPROACHING THE ELECTION OF 2012 AND WE AGAIN, SEE THOSE ON THE LEFT PAINTING MOST OF THOSE SEEKING THE REPUBLICAN NOMINATION AS EXTREMIST IN ONE FORM OR ANOTHER AND THEIR HERO, BARACK OBAMA, AS REPRESENTING THE VAST MIDDLE OF THE COUNTRY.  WHEN NOTHING COULD BE FARTHER FROM THE TRUTH.  THE EXTREMIST IN THE UPCOMING ELECTION IS NOT FOUND IN THE REPUBLICAN FIELD, BUT IN THE CURRENT OCCUPANT OF THE WHITE HOUSE.

Yep I remember that commercial. The left will do anything to stay in power to include running the country into the ground which they are doing very well.

Have a terrific day. :)

Spot on! Obama is the extremist who is trying to transform this country into some socialist utopian nightmare.

My brother, Robert Mann just published a book on this subject...he leans to the way far left though. We don't talk politics!

My father (a staunch Republican) voted for Johnson to keep me out of Vietnam. How did that work out for you Dad?

If you look at history, Libs usually fight wars to tie.
