Anyone else tired of seeing all of these campaign ads on TV?

I don't know about areas where anyone else lives, but here, if you watch a local TV station, it's just full of campaign ads. This one slamming that one - nasty, negative. UGH! This is what I hate most about election time. I don't care which party because they are ALL guilty of the slandering. I've gotten to the point where I won't even watch a local station because of this! Who else is sick of all of the ads?

  • Frankly, I think it's sad the way they all have to slam each other. Just tell me what you plan to do and be done with it. End of story!

  • It is hard to decide who to vote for. They just bash each other. They do not give their position.

  • I hate them also. They all accuse each other of the same thing and it gets on my nerves the way they drag each other throught the mud when they probably both suck!

  • Turn off the tv or radio- All those mailers hit the round, recycle file before they pass through the front door. I read a blog today where the woman takes one of her political postcards out with her when she walks her dog-yes, she uses them as scoopers. She said the most offensive are the 1st to get used. Love it!!!!

  • I don't have cable. It's been great not having to hear them this year.

  • All three major networks have political ads all day and night and they are so nasty and mean. Why can't the candidates stop attacking each other and just tell us what they believe in and what they want to do???
