We’ve all been bombarded with political campaign ads this year, especially in the past month.  I think there are far more this time than in any election in history, at least it seems that way where I live.

I can’t help but get angry at all of the lies in the Obama ads.  They are rife with lies and contorted facts.  They make claims about Obama that aren’t true and try to make his record seem bright and shining when in fact it’s dull and tarnished.

Sometimes I even get upset at the Romney ads as I feel he is not hitting some of the key issues strong enough.  I know he doesn’t want to seem as divisive and nasty as Obama, but then he needs to realize that like it or not, in American politics these days, nice guys often finish last.

There are some ads made by some of the PACs and other organizations that are not officially part of either candidate’s campaign.  Some of have been pretty good and have said the things that I wish Romney would say.  But there is one campaign ad that in my mind rises above all the rest and the story behind it is a remarkable one.
