    See, this is a strategic mistake on Romney's part.

    He should not have announced it until a few hours before they run.

    no it advantage as it gives obama little time to counter it

    To have that much tv time is big factor in winning swing states.

    obama did same thing in 2008 and romney doing it now

    President got to match this otherwise he be destoryed in terms of tv advertsing.

    The thing is, if he announced it six hours before releasing it, that would give him a good 36 to 48 hours before any response could be created.

    Release the infomercial a day before the election and he'll get the last word.

    I think its a strategic mistake on his part.

    I don,t agree as any long informical can have massive impact on a swing states with less then two weeks to go.

    so i can only see a advantage for him with such big air time.

    I understand why you're saying this, but actually it's a good thing to let us know as soon as possible. If he waited until 6 hours before, then many people wouldn't have even heard about it and would miss the whole thing. He wants people to know so whoever wants to watch will be able to. If a lot of people don't know about it, he's wasting a lot of money!

    it was expected that campaigns will do this after the 2008 election.

    So many political ads have been run in swing states, I doubt many people have the stomach to sit through a long political ad. this political season is like no other. new rules.

    just my opinion. we'll see


    30-minute Obama ad shows campaign muscle - CNN
