Video: The Obama 2012 launch, featuring everyone but Obama

posted at 9:30 am on April 4, 2011 by Ed Morrissey

Barack Obama is running for President in 2012, but he may be the last person we’ll actually see on this campaign.  The Obama 2012 team released its first web ad this morning, but other than a couple of long-distance clips, Obama himself is nowhere to be seen.  Equally absent — any hint of issues or claims of accomplishments:

How much trouble does O-12 face? They couldn’t even find enough enthusiastic people to fill out a commercial. In 2008, it was all about the passion, and yet only one person even mentions this, and only to say that Obama’s too busy to work that magic again. One of the last voices we hear in the ad comes from a North Carolina man who admits that he doesn’t agree with Obama on “everything,” but that he “respects” Obama. Yes, that’s the kind of momentum one longs to see at the start of a presidential campaign.

Andrew Malcolm offers a humorous take on the ad by comparing it to a DeVry commercial, but the better analogy is to an erectile-dysfunction ad.In both cases, the product’s brand gets advertised without ever explicitly saying what exactly it does.  Instead, we get plenty of warm and soft-focus cinematography along with knowing glances and a slightly self-conscious cast.  And in both cases, prolonged effect is potentially dangerous and needs intervention from people who know better.

My take too. He’s so fragile. And busy! Don’t forget how busy he is. Alice in Michigan says so.

Just for fun, I would love to see what a Hillary ad would look like…

mjbrooks3 on April 4, 2011 at 9:38 AM

So the Obama Administration is priapism. Can we extend this analogy further?

thuja on April 4, 2011 at 9:40 AM

I like the telling moment at about 0:23 or 0:24 when “Katherine (Colorado)” glances furtively off to the side. Like in a hostage video, she steals a look at someone off-camera as if to make sure she’s correctly delivering the lines.

Not that that’s what’s really going on of course. It just looks like it. Shifty, and creepy. This is the best they could do?

Gilda on April 4, 2011 at 9:40 AM

Why Obama? Because negotiating poorly-secured trillion-dollar loans is hard work, and nobody does it better.

RBMN on April 4, 2011 at 9:40 AM

Heh, they could have just run this clip.

brtex on April 4, 2011 at 9:41 AM

Don’t expect him to get out there and fire things up because he’s being paid to do job. Uh-huh. Apparently he didn’t have a job during the last campaign.

If those are the best testimonials they can come up with, they’re in trouble.

You forgot the church. (2d shot)

This ad tips their hand on who they want and need to reach. The O Team knows Obama is in trouble. A reelection ad that doesn’t even feature the candidate should be troubling for every Obamatron.

conservative pilgrim on April 4, 2011 at 9:42 AM

He will have to run on record.
He will not have the “hip, young, black” imagery to propel him.
He will not have Bush to blame anymore.
He will have a depressed base.
He will face an energetic opposition.

On a slightly more serious note, when will he start going out to campaign stops? I mean official ones, not cleverly disguised events like the Tuscon rally….errrr, memorial.

Just curious, because as much as his endless golf outings and vacations disgust me, I think the optics could be far worse if he’s appearing in front of hand-picked adoring and swooning crowds a year and a half before the 2012 election.

There are still people out there stupid enough to vote for him again. We just need to take him seriously this time and work to make sure he doesn’t get a chance put his feet up on the Resolute desk again.

ElectricPhase on April 4, 2011 at 10:03 AM

Obama ’12 is going to be almost entirely about negative campaigning. The problem at the moment is before they start portraying the Republican challenger as the successor to BushHitler they have to know which one is BushHitler.

Given their druthers, I’m sure Team Obama would love to release an ad portraying every single possible GOP nominee as BushHitler, but that kind of broad-brush tactic didn’t exactly go over like gangbusters when they tried it last year on the Tea Party. So for the moment we get these dull, tepid pro-Obama ads that are basically are about nothing and are only out there to place a market for his re-election. The really nasty stuff won’t start until the field of front-runners is clearer at the end of this year.

From William A. Jacobson at Legal Insurrection:

The Obama campaign also has leaked the text of the next video:

We dare not forget today that we are the heirs of that first Obama revolution. Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Obama fans — born at the end of the last century, tempered by student loans and competition for the most Facebook friends, disciplined by a hard and bitter college admissions process, proud of Obama’s ancient heritage, and unwilling to witness or permit the slow undoing of those human rights like free internet to which this nation has always been committed, and to which we are committed today at home and around the world.

Good grief! Talk about a Messiah Complex. Must be difficult to be so humble all the time.

Gag. Wretch.

And…

He will have the MSM working feverishly 24/7 to prop him up while actively destroying his opponent.
He will have thugs intimidating or actually beating supporters of the opposition.
He will have the usual sycophantic special interest groups who will vote overwhelmingly for him no matter what.
And he will have a significant percentage of the ignorant populace who will believe the untruthful demagoguery that casts the GOP as the party that wants to enslave minorities, kill off the elderly, make energy ridiculously expensive, destroy the economy and run amok declaring war on everyone – despite the ample evidence that it was *Obama* and his Dimwit lackeys that were actually busy doing precisely that.

I am not confident about the prospects of Obama being thrown out of office in 2012.

Obama’s signature accomplishment of Health Care has been a total disaster with thousands of waivers now starting to include whole states like New York…home of it’s biggest supporter, the little democrat Weiner.

…..Obama’s anit-war base is in shambles having to come to terms with defending their liberal messiah bombing the sh!t out of an oil rich country without Congressional approval,that did not attack us,and posed no imminent threat.
………and with the failure of transparency,large debt,massive spending,loyalty to K-street and his lobbyist friends,high unemployment,and many other broken promises…it goes down hill from there.

Hope and Change is an absolute bust and Obama owns it 100%.

The President wasn’t available for the filming of this ad because he was on the golf course, you know, “working”.

This may be the single lamest political advertisement I’ve ever seen. Is the vision here really that we “don’t necessarily agree with him but we like him”? That’s the campaign’s best focus group tested, hIghest scoring theme? What was second; “he hasn’t started WW3 yet”.

MTF on April 4, 2011 at 10:58 AM

On a slightly more serious note, when will he start going out to campaign stops? I mean official ones, not cleverly disguised events like the Tuscon rally….errrr, memorial.

Doughboy on April 4, 2011 at 9:44 AM

Its hard to point to a time, or even recall one in memory, that the crowd was not completely hand picked or if too large to be totally hand picked, then those close to him were with tight camera angles to exclude the majority that might not be so adoring. Disagreement is never allowed and rarely acknowledged. Smoke and mirrors.

The screencap looks like something from The Sims…

So does the rest of the commercial.

When your ‘real people’ start to look like digital simulations, then you really need to get your commercial creators out from behind their desks. Playing The Sims, no doubt, as simulated life is so much easier than real life. And the content given by the actors is just as intelligible as that of any Sim: meaningful sounds devoid of content.

ajacksonian on April 4, 2011 at 11:15 AM

I hope this time his opponents or RNC use some of the great photos from the White House photo gallery in ads showing Obama playing with his football in the Oval Office, sitting with his feet on the Resolute desk, sitting with his feet on the coffee table, out on the golf course, on the basketball court, partying large, eating the foods we peons are told are bad for us and so forth. In all my life I don’t ever remember having a POTUS as bad as this one.

Of course any extra bit time he has is spent trying to run OTHER countries and ruining this country.

Andrew Malcolm offers a humorous take on the ad by comparing it to a DeVry commercial, but the better analogy is to an erectile-dysfunction ad.In both cases, the product’s brand gets advertised without ever explicitly saying what exactly it does. Instead, we get plenty of warm and soft-focus cinematography along with knowing glances and a slightly self-conscious cast. And in both cases, prolonged effect is potentially dangerous and needs intervention from people who know better.

Ouch! Good one!

The Waldo president is not even Present! Perfect!
