You mean his wifes money. She owns Anheuser-Bush, now being sold to Inbev.
As a Candidate in 1992, Ross Perot did half-hour infomercials too.
"Perot employed the innovative strategy of purchasing half-hour blocks of time on major networks for infomercial-type campaign ads; these ads garnered more viewership than many sitcoms, with one Friday night program in October attracting 10.5 million viewers."
* Part of what Obama said about public financing back in the Summer of 2007 was that as an outside Candidate with no backing by the usual Democratic Funding resources, it was likely that he would need to take public financing. McCain on the other hand took public funding during the Primaries and used it to get a loan to keep his campaign alive, then sued to back out of it so he could build up enough funds to pay for advertising against Obama before he became of Official Nominee and was limited to Public Funding.
Is that relevant? As if the Widow Heinz wasn't doing the same for Kerry.
Furthermore, she certainly doesn't own Anheuser-Busch!
I think the political stuff needs to stay out of this. TCF rules, if I'm not mistaken.

His wife's family owns an AB distributor. AB itself is publicly owned.
Are all voters as misinformed as you appear to be?
Anybody have a full list of the networks running this special? Keith Olbermann complained tonight that he'll have to do two Countdown shows tomorrow. (One half-hour reaction show at 8:30 ET, then a second live episode in the normal rerun slot of 10pm ET.)
Umm.. (1) look for it in the guide data and View Upcoming, or
(2) READ THE FIRST ARTICLE IN THE FREAKING THREAD.
I started this thread in this area of the board mainly because the informercial is going to alter the normal networks' schedule on Wednesday (the 29th - thanks astrohip). I could talk yer ear off plenty about Obama, but all I did was to briefly suggest that the show might be worth watching.
Yeah, Jcaudle, I agree. I was just curious if my statement would get noticed. I guess it did. I tried to come up with a few million dollars to give to McCain for a rebuttal counter-ad, but came up a few bucks short. Anybody want to help? Since this is a TV forum, not a political one I won't say more except to say ..no, I won't even say that. Oh, yeah. . . I live in Oregon and have already voted. . .we do it by mail here.
So McCain lied about that, too. Figures.
Its seems as if its alot of sour grapes. Republicans outspend Dems in 90% of all political contests. It just so happens they are getting vastly outspent in this race, so the amount of moeny being spent by the other side MUST be obscene.
I'm just shocked at a majority of the nation's ability to take everything that happens and somehow turn it into a negative for the side they are opposed to. Sometimes I think that Dems think McCain is lying when he says that the sun rises in the east. And that O'bama is the Antichrist for believing, with all his heart, that the first three letters of the alphabet are A, B & C.
Welcome to the U.S.S.A.
United Socialist States of America
You know a vote for the republican or democrat candidate is a vote of approval for the way things have been going for the past thirty years maybe even post "New Deal".
What happened to personal responsibility and freedom?
The founding fathers are flipping in their graves!!!
I have a feeling we are getting a monorail with Obama. I guess it's to late he already sang his song.
Woo-hoo! A poilitcal thread in the Season Pass Alerts forum! This is a first!
Guess Justapixel never dreamed she needed to put the "no politics" sticky in this forum too!
Will Barack Obama say anything that hasn't been said already in the preceeding 18 months of this campaign?
I am fairly confident that this will be mainly an ad for Obama supporters to go out and vote early. Smart move if you have the lead - seal the deal and get those on your side to just vote already.
PS I voted yesterday and dodged only one pollster and waited a whole 30 seconds
Yeah, I smell a lock coming up.........
McCain's way too out of touch to (A) know the sun rises, (B) know it rises in the east, and (C) know which direction is east.
3 thumbs down on obama
Right on! Anyone who makes up his/her mind on the basis of the so called "debates" or all the lies int these political ads is, at best, a moron. This infomercial is just another political ad.
I believe so. It's airing on NBC, Fox and CBS HD.
