Maybe I am getting old but I feel this latest commercial for President Obama is disgusting. This video targeting young adults that compares voting to having sex for the first time. There really are not words to describe the ad except wonder if he would really like for his two little girls to think that voting for dad is like losing their virginity?

Ten years ago, I was the publisher of Nickelodeon Magazine.  One of my responsibilities was to approve every ad that appeared in the book.  There were times I turned away advertising resulting in lost ad revenue and a lower bonus. But my decision was based on one factor, If my daughter opened the magazine would I be comfortable with her seeing the ad.

It would be nice to have a President who used the same criteria for his campaign ads.
