Obama 30 Minute Infomercial Airs Tonight

29 Oct

Tonight is the night Obama’s 30 minute infomercial will run. Are we ready for it? Probably not, but it’s coming anyway. Here are some details about what viewers will see if they tune in:

The ad is expected to be a video montage of typical people talking about the challenges they face, with Obama explaining how he can help. A campaign adviser said the taped ad will feature a live cut-in to Obama, who is scheduled to be at a rally in Florida at the time.

The Obama team bought time on CBS, NBC and Fox for about $1 million per network. The spot airs at 8 p.m. EDT. It is also scheduled to run on Univision, BET, MSNBC and TV One.

John McCain responded to the Obama camp infomercial by first declaring: “I will never delay the start of the World Series for an infomercial!” Secondly, McCain has a new ad out dismissing Obama’s infomercial as a “TV special.”

Here’s the ad:

“Behind the fancy speeches, grand promises and TV special, lies the truth,” the McCain ad’s announcer says. “With crises at home and abroad, Barack Obama lacks the experience America needs. And it shows. His response to our economic crisis is to spend and tax our economy deeper into recession. The fact is Barack Obama’s not ready yet.”
