Maybe I've missed them but, WHERE ARE THE BIDEN ADS TODAY? They should be all over the rallyfail,

are they taking the day off?
OK, I'm in L.A., woke up late so maybe I didn't see them, but I've searched several pages of threads on DU and see an instant ad by The Lincoln Project, but nothing from Biden Campaign.

Don't they know this is a WAR this time, it's not 2 older gents under a spreading chestnut tree trading genteel barbs. The enemy has handed us an armory full of ammunition and it doesn't look like we want to shoot.

THEY SHOULD ALREADY HAVE MULTIPLE ADS GOING, seriously, come on guys, don't be "sleepy" because then you play right into the Rethuglican hands!!!!

GO JOE!

The free media they're getting about last night's disaster is more than enough. They can't buy that kind of messaging ...

Once the media moves on to something else will be the time to go up with ads. Today they're smart to let the news speak for itself.

substantive campaigning (jobs, economy), there's a void to be filled, and now might be a good time to start filling.

OTOH, who would have guessed that the Pitysburgh address would be such a colossal flop? I hope Biden gets some teens on his advisory committee, sounds like they know things and are good at activating people.

The Democrats are doing it wrong! That’s what the political consultants of DU say.

And it's a good thing they're saying it here, because, otherwise, how would the campaigns ever know what it should do. - especially since they surely never thought of that option, much less considered it?

After all, Democrats are world famous at running campaigns. No need for any advice or input from actual Democrats.



Pardon those of us who are beyond anxious this will get f-ed up again.

No need to respond to everything. Biden properly understood that during the primaries. Don't risk your current fundamental advantage based on Trump's low approval.

One of the reasons I didn't want Kamala Harris as nominee is there is no chance she would have grasped that. It would be frantic need to counter every act and every tweet...playing smack into Trump's hands.

We can't spend precious time chasing after every bone that comes from Trump's direction, we need to set our own course, monitor it and make timely corrections.

We also need to stop crying about republican voter obstruction. We KNOW that they are going to do that, we take them to Court where that make a difference, but more importantly, our field people need to understand that our voters can't wait until the last day to vote or drop their mailin ballots off. If people have mailin ballots, don't wait, they know who they are going to vote for and those choices won't change, fill the fucking ballot out properly, make sure all things that need to be done are done correctly and either mail the ballot in or drop it off and insure that it is acknowledged. Where in person early voting is possible, people need to mask and glove up and go vote during slow periods during in person early voting.

Bama, DU isn't at all the place to look for ads. What you want to do is identify a geographic area currently being targeted with pro-Biden ads and tune to local radio and TV. Enjoy.

When they do that, you let them.

And did you just accuse Biden of being sleepy?

Have a nice Summer.
