    Obama ads on CF

    I've noticed the Obama ads exclusively on here. Did the Obama campaign pay for these or was this donated ad space?

    Not my webpage and not my decision to make. I just thought it was peculiar, and thought I would ask. I applaud the fact that CF is getting involved in the Iowa Caucuses. Obama will be glad to know that half of my household will be helping him out on the 3rd. I just would be interested in hearing a clarification if it is more than coincidental.

    I think they are just random (but targeted) Google adds.

    Just keep thinking, it is all over on friday it is all over on friday. I am sick of Romney and Huckabee calls attacking each other.

    Re: Obama ads on CF

    The ads are all sold through and by Google so I don't get a say in what shows up (except for certain things I can exclude). The Obama campaign just appears to have paid the most.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Still better than looking at Hillary ads all the time...

    Exactly! If I have to start seeing Hillary ads on this site I will visit less frequently. I got the best bumper sticker sent to me on email the other day. It was one with her face and it said "Life's a Beatch, don't vote for one!!!"

    on a similar sentiment, i'm sure many of you have heard of the slogan for anti-hillary obama supporters: "Bros before hos"
