03/04/2004: "President Bush's new Ads"

President Bush has released some ads for his Presidential campaign and is receiving criticism of it because it includes images from the Trade Towers. Here's an article on it.

This is just rediculous. I've seen the ad in question and it is not only tasteful but a completely valid use of images of Sept. 11th, even if they were untasteful. The ad points to how our country has gone through a lot of stuggles in the last few years including a recession and the terorist attacks and that Bush has provided solid leadership through those events.

Whether or not I agree that he really has had solid leadership, he's allowed to make his case that indeed he has. Using images from events he's had to lead through is not only valid, but the right thing to do.

UPDATE: Here is a link to the ads straight from GW and company so that you can judge for yourself.

Hey, I noticed on the ad entitled "Lead" they use music from Michael W. Smith's Album "Freedom" entitled "Carol Ann". In case you aren't aware, M.W.S. is a popular christian artist for the last 20 years.
