Obama and Simmons, Kings of the Infomercial!

The Presidential candidate uses a tried and true method of pitching himself for prez.

barack-obama-richard-simmons.jpg Infomercials allow anyone with the cash to market their product to the masses. Presidential candidate Barack Obama's half-hour infomercial last night was no different. Obama, wearing two hats as pitchman and as product, aired a glitzy commercial telling the nation why he should be president. Not all infomercials are as well done. Usually the ads appear late at night and are ridiculous, embarrassing and frankly, hilarious. Order now!

Here are some of our favorite infomercials through the years:

I think Obama’s infomercial was beyond annoying! We turned off the television and spent our time doing something really important like balancing our checkbook and thinking of ways to make our next paycheck stretch.

LOL in fairness to ‘proud mom of five’ given how you signed your comment (old man/yer woman) you would have found it annoying. So what you did instead is immaterial really. It is kinda ironic to me that you say you were making your paycheck stretch, wouldn’t thatbe down to the current Republican administration, just a thought.

Crossing my fingers here in Ireland that America will endorse Obama.

Ahh Redmum…Proud mom probably is a pro-lifer and will vote solely for that issue alone. Oh well. Many of us are banking on a future with a man who has shown such dignity in an awful campaign.
I enjoyed his infomercial. We felt change and hope!

Thanks for your support from your beautiful country!!
