Andy Griffith's Shameless Misleading Ads for ObamaCare

[Reposted with working video links.]

I couldn't believe it, at first, when I saw this recent pro-ObamaCare ad by Andy Griffith.

Aside from looking like a stroke victim, Griffith, or, more accurately, the Democratic administration using him, are trading on his folksy, trustworthy image. Here, honestly, I think he looks senile. The stupid grin and misinformation about just what ObamaCare will do to the country. It's truly shameful what our government is doing, creating and running ads to confuse and mislead seniors, claiming that there's a free lunch to be had in the new, expensive health care laws.

Here's what I think of when I see that ad....Andy Griffith as Lonesome Rhodes in Elia Kazan's 1957 classic A Face in the Crowd.

Scary clips, aren't they? Reminding us of Cass Sunstein's remarks about people being like Homer Simpson, needing help making choices.

And to help you let government make those choices for you, we see a new face of propaganda- ol' Andy drawling about how great ObamaCare is going to be. Do you think he even understands what it is?
