Which political adds are most effective?

I'm curious what people's take is on the political adds.

Which have been most effective?

My favorites are anything involving "You didn't build that".

Constructing a campaign and a national convention around a saying taken completely out of context is an incredible demonstration about how superficial our political system is, how easily misled the majority of voters are and a perfect reminder how this country is completely f&&#ed.

Almost as compelling is the Obama add with the clip of Romney saying that is fair that he pays a lower tax rate while completely omitting Romney's explanation regarding double taxation and capital investment.

Billion dollar campaigns based on attacks, misinformation and outright lies. How anyone can vote for either of these jackasses is beyond me.

Come on Blutski the double taxation argument is among the dumbest out there., right up there with reverse discrimination and that Catholics are being attacked if gynocological care is included in women's health care coverage.They should have given Romney MORE rope to hang himself with.People might fall for it.Can 't believe a guy as smart as you does.For starters, only new /additional income is taxed.They pay a lower tax rate on it than WORKERS do on EARNED income.!! They have a gazillion loopholes and tax tricks, like carried interest,to weasel their way out of paying the amounts they should in a social contract already heavily stacked in THEIR FAVOR.(caps not yelling device prevents you from using certain words normally)
