I saw a Romney/Ryan commercial in California (Sacramento) last night, anyone else seen one? (Vanity)

I was watching either Channel 58 or 3 (I was channel surfing, I don't remember which one it was) and these 3 or 4 women came on, and said they voted for Obama or Clinton the last couple of elections, and then talked about all the bad things going on in the country and they were all voting for Romney/Ryan!

Anyone else in CA see this commercial? Do they actually think they have a chance in CA?!

KEYWORDS: california; commercial; romney; ryan; vanity
I posted on another thread, along with some other people in CA that I haven't seen ONE Obama sign in the area around here, and VERY few bumper stickers!

You wouldn't even know there was an election going on except for a few yards signs for some local people!

Havent seen any Romney spots but seeing a lot of new Obama ones. Beggs the question, why he is wasting money on CA there is no way possible he could loose this bastion of ignorant liberalism.

Not sure what channels those are you saw them on, but if they’re nationally carried cable channels or network prime time coverage that may be why there was a Romney commercial there. If so, then it was targeted to the swing states and the fact it was seen in California or any other non-swing state is just incidental. Kind of a shot gun approach. Watching Fox network prime time last night I saw a Super Pac ad for Romney during “Kitchen Nightmares.” They’re just trying to get it on network prime time shows to be seen in swing states which means we all see it.

I don’t think I have seen a Romney ad all day.

I must have seen that jackass Colin Powell a dozen times.

It could be that channel is seen in Nevada and so they took out an ad with a California station to reach Nevada voters.

I have seen Obama ads every once in awhile here in north east Texas and I am wondering, Why? Not one Romney ad yet - smart use of his money IMOP.

I know CA doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in HELL of going for Romney, but if the enthusiasm is THAT low for O’Bozo round these parts, it must REALLY be BAD NEWS for him in the rest of the country!

In 2008, there were signs and bumper stickers everywhere you looked!

Good God, I hope it’s a BLOWOUT of Reaganous proportions! The media and dumbocrat cheerleaders need to be SLAPPED into depression!

I live in the opposite BLUE state....so frustrating that no one comes to talk or ask for my vote. It is just a given that the state will go Dem.....my vote goes down the toilet :(

Radio ads by some energy PAC condem Obama - No mention of Romney. Talks about Keystone pipeline, and says people must vote for folks who will help US become energy independent.

Mixed in with Rushe’s show local ads - Local ads talking about Prop 30 (no) and 32 (Yes).

Obama will win CA (unfortunately) 12-15% margin

Over here on the Peninsula, I have the privilege of living on THE street in with the most Obama lawn signs in all of Northern California. Our average block has SIX of them! On my 5 mile walks about town, I may see one or two here and there. But somehow we have the ultimate concentration of losers on our block. There are two Romney signs, us and a neighbor across the street.

On my errands today, I saw precisely ONE Obama sticker on a Prius (natch) with the license plate “SAVE WLD.” I was in the car probably 2 hours running all over, too.

This is the heart of liberal la-la land in NorCal, too.

Haven’t seen any campaign commercials, but I attribute that to the fact that I don’t watch broadcast TV (I stream movies and tv shows like “Homeland” as well as DVDs through the mail).

I see almost no Romney ads here in the Florida Panhandle but I probably get 2-3 robo calls a day. They are all from the Republican National Committee.

I have already voted absentee, almost straight Republican so they are wasting their time.

I drove all around the San Fernando Valley today doing errands for hours and didn’t see ONE Obama bumper sticker.

Was amazed, and gladdened. I checked many cars on the streets and also in crammed parking lots at local shopping centers. Only toward the end, as I approached home (near the local University) did I see one (1) single BO sticker on a car parked on the street next to college student apartments. That was the only one.

I think people in this area support Romney/Ryan but are afraid to show bumper stickers on their cars, for fear of being shunned by the community and co-workers in this traditionally liberal area of Southern California.

The fact that NO ONE is sporting Obama stickers 2012 is a loud ‘dog whistle,’ as the pundits call it. They are as concerned as WE are: NO MORE multi-trillion deficits - it’s an unsustainable insane fiscal War on Children.

I am very hopeful about next Tuesday. Let’s keep our fingers tightly crossed.

I’ve seen about 3 or 4 cars with Romney/Ryan stickers on them. They’ve got guts, or know where there car will be parked at all times!

I don’t trust putting any stickers on my car, because I don’t feel like getting my car keyed!

I see Obama commercials every day. Its disguised as our “local news” channels... All Barack Channel (ABC), Neverending Barack Crap (NBC) and Conglomeration of Barack Suckups (CBS)

Maybe political ads. are payoffs for not telling the truth in MSM. They have ignored the Libya coverup.

I live in Los Angeles county on the peninsula. I have seen very few bumper stickers or yard signs. The few I have seen are mostly for Romney.
