Question of the day

Friday, Sep 27, 2019

* From the Jeanne Ives campaign…

Ives Release New Digital Ad: Meet Paul Hall

Sean Casten’s next door neighbor, Vietnam veteran and four-time Purple Heart recipient Paul Hall knows who Sean Casten is. He knows Casten’s extreme agenda doesn’t represent him or his neighbors.

Paul wants everyone to know: He is ‘All In’ for Jeanne Ives. The veteran knows that Ives will do what Casten won’t: represent him and his neighbors in government, rather than pushing a radical, big government agenda at the neighborhood block party and across the district

* The digital ad

* Script…

Meet Sean Casten’s next door neighbor, Paul Hall.

He is backing Jeanne Ives for Congress.

Paul fought against oppressive government in Vietnam and he knows more government doesn’t equal more freedom.

It isn’t very neighborly of Casten to vote for reckless spending and more debt - especially for those who are retired.

That’s why he is ‘All In’ for Jeanne Ives!

[Hall]: I’m supporting Jeanne Ives for Congress because she’s here for the people and not for the government.

* The Question: Your rating? Don’t forget to explain. Thanks.

    Question for Ives - would you have voted for Trump’s tax cut? Bush 43’s?


  2. - LuckyCharms - Friday, Sep 27, 19 @ 2:04 pm:

    Would love to hear from Jeanne Ives’ neighbors.


  3. - The Real Captain - Friday, Sep 27, 19 @ 2:04 pm:

    I give it a D. I get it is a digital ad and audio isn’t its thing but it doesn’t have anything that draws you in or gives it focus.


  4. - Jocko - Friday, Sep 27, 19 @ 2:04 pm:

    I give it a C. If Paul has something bad to say about Sean, why not say it rather than put it in a quote (with infomercial music playing in the background).

    “She’s here for the people and not for the government.” Um, aren’t they the same thing?


  5. - Turn - Friday, Sep 27, 19 @ 2:04 pm:

    She better hope he doesn’t flip on her.


  6. - 47th Ward - Friday, Sep 27, 19 @ 2:05 pm:

    It’s a great ad, A+. It’s full of lies, just like Jeanne Ives.

    Also, I respect all those who served our country, but I take exception to this:

    “Paul fought against oppressive government in Vietnam…”

    We fought in Vietnam for a variety of reasons, but comparing that to today’s government in Washington is appalling and deplorable.

    In fact, we supported a corrupt regime in Saigon against communists who were hell bent on unifying Vietnam under communist rule, as a proxy for the Soviet Union.

    Ives’ ham-handed description tries to equate that war with taxes and spending. What a loon, and she’s using a decorated veteran to make her case. No shame.


  7. - SpfdNewb - Friday, Sep 27, 19 @ 2:06 pm:

    C+

    Simple message that resonates but the actual video of Paul Hall speaking was cringe-worthy. Terrible editing job with the image flickering. Also, the generic music honestly made the political ad sound like a 30 second craft making video.


  8. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Sep 27, 19 @ 2:09 pm:

    It’s a C-

    Why?

    Up to the point of the “neighbor” speaking, it’s vidislh bland, sliding graphics and pictures, and it’s like printing, what, Ives could only afford “3 color video”?

    It’s better than nothing. If that’s the benchmark, yikes.

    There was so much left unsaid, like in the first 20 seconds.

    It’s a C-, it’s better than nothing but worse than a “gentleman’s C”


  9. - Slugger O'Toole - Friday, Sep 27, 19 @ 2:10 pm:

    I hope she did thorough background checks on her neighbors before posting.


  10. - dirksen - Friday, Sep 27, 19 @ 2:10 pm:

    I give it a B because it demonstrates great improvement. No classes of people were mocked or defamed during the taping of this ad.


  11. - Eugene - Friday, Sep 27, 19 @ 2:11 pm:

    Pretty weak stuff. Aside from technical shortcomings, main message is: a Republican who is a neighbor of Sean Casten doesn’t like Sean Casten, so vote Republican.


  12. - Suzzz - Friday, Sep 27, 19 @ 2:14 pm:

    OH. MY. GOD. TURN YOUR PHONE THE OTHER WAY. Shooting horizontal video is advertising 101. Clearly this wasn’t done by a professional.


  13. - Senator Clay Davis - Friday, Sep 27, 19 @ 2:18 pm:

    I’d give it a A…in a high-school media class.

    It’s about as sophisticated as a student council ad that plays before the morning announcements.


  14. - Bertrum Cates - Friday, Sep 27, 19 @ 2:22 pm:

    D+ for going with the, “OK….so, what else ya got?” idea.


  15. - Quibbler - Friday, Sep 27, 19 @ 2:26 pm:

    “fought against oppressive government in Vietnam”

    To her list of scummy campaign tactics, Ives can now add “Cold War atrocity revisionism” to “racist dog whistling” and “transgender demonization.” Truly a queen.


  16. - Southern_Dawg - Friday, Sep 27, 19 @ 2:30 pm:

    47th Ward is on fire today. Couldn’t agree. Apparently veterans are our new resident experts in all things politics. No one dare question a veteran, would they?


  17. - Southern_Dawg - Friday, Sep 27, 19 @ 2:30 pm:

    Correction, “couldn’t agree more”


  18. - MadCoPolitico - Friday, Sep 27, 19 @ 2:35 pm:

    The ad itself is bad. I’ll give them credit for
    getting the neighbor.

    Don’t get me wrong- you don’t have to be best
    friends with all your neighbors, but it
    never looks good when someone who lives next
    door isn’t at least neutralized.


  19. - Jocko - Friday, Sep 27, 19 @ 2:44 pm:

    MCP,

    I bet that Paul is as Republican as the day is long. At least he didn’t say “Sean never returned my weed trimmer.”


  20. - SpfdNewb - Friday, Sep 27, 19 @ 2:46 pm:

    MadCoPolitico, or that one neighbor is the neighbor from [banned word?] and no one in the neighborhood want’s anything to do with them.


  21. - OneMan - Friday, Sep 27, 19 @ 2:51 pm:

    Don’t make me read that much, all I am going to do is look at my phone.
