Political Ad by Citizens for the Republic..."“There’s Mourning in America”

This is a political ad by Citizens for the Republic, this ad is a takeoff on the famous “It’s Morning in America” ad that spearheaded President Ronald Reagan’s 1984 re-election campaign.

“Under the leadership of President Obama, our country is fading, and weaker, and worse off. His policies were a grand experiment – policies that failed. This November, let’s choose a smaller, more caring government – one that remembers us.”

In 1984, the Reagan reelection campaign set the standard for modern political advertising with its fabled "Morning in America" series, which included one of the greatest political ads of all time -- "Better, Prouder, Stronger." The ad captured the zeitgeist -- America under President Reagan was coming back, full of optimism and confidence in the future.

Today, the zeitgeist is exactly the opposite. Americans are worried about their future, and about a government determined to implement policies that just don't work. But like its predecessor, "Mourning in America" offers a new hope -- if we can just get our government to return to time-tested policies that can spark a rebirth of liberty.


This is the 1984 Reagan ad, “Morning in America”

I wish these good ads like this would be playing on TV and often. It is great that we get to see them, but this kind of ad needs to be seen by more people and honestly not all people use computers even in todays' world.
