That ad for Romney is offensive to me, especially on my page.

And you think the ads for democrats , are not offensive??

get real ALL political ads are offensive.

Here's the story about that. The ads on the side on the lower section and across the top are Google ads. The political parties have a lot of money to spend and they are blanketing the Internet, so you're probably going to see it just about anyplace you go for the next several days, Larry. Most Google ads are placed on sites by a system called behavioral targeting. White males of a certain age are Mitt Romney's demographic, I believe, so I'd guess you are seeing it on your computer more often than I am. Nonetheless, 'tis the season and soon it will be all over. Sorry.

Sorry, Larry. Those are Google ads. The political candidates have lots of money to spend and a lot of it is being spent online. Bet you're going to find that ad on just about any site you visit in the next few days.

Welcome to the world wide web where it is not here for our amusement or education, as we may desire but is here to sell things.

At this point in the election process, pretty much any ad is offensive and I live in a swing state where all ads are political.  I am missing viagara ads at this point.

Thank you, Geri. a little humor it helps a lot. The viagra ads come while you're watching TV at dinner time, like diaper ads, and other such ilk.

I even shudder when my phone rings these days. Bill Clinton called me twice yesterday, Ron Reagan called, my Congressman Tim Walberg, and several more, and I'm not even in a swing state. Geri, this might be a good time to visit friends in California where it is all decided already.

Connie, every time the landline rings it is an out of state or blocked call.  I answer for the fun of it.  A lot are surveys.  So far I have responded to them as an Asian man, black woman, white 20 something  and so on.  Haven't given an honest answer yet.  We are averaging about 5 calls a day.  This is what I get for registering as an independent.  (In Illinois, Wisconsin and Texas,  we didn't have to declare a party).    We wanted to stay up north longer, Illinois isn't a swing state.

Geri, that viagra comment was so funny and I just realized that I haven't seen many medical ads lately.  I hate those, I hate all the political ads, too.  I'm not sure which I hate more.  I'm thinking a nice Tide commercial or Jiff Peanut Butter commercial would be nice.

You know what burns me...MY State Senators and Reps, calling me from their Pennsylvania numbers, and it's a recording. If you are my State's Rep or Senator, call me from our STATE, and have the decency to call me in person. And listen up, calling me at dinner time or after 7pm, you are going to hear..'HI, don't call me" and a hang up. I don't care if you are the President, God, or whoever. Here we use manners, are NOT RUDE, and after 7 pm is my time... interrupt that and you had better be PAYING me to vote.
