I've been watching the Olympics on NBC the last few evenings and was surprised to see a Presidential ad come on with a very direct message from the President. Do any of you recall seeing a political ad during any of the previous winter Olympics????
The ad itself is very unseemly to me. I could see the President of the United States coming on and touting how our Olympians are the best our country has to offer and how we as a country should give party politics a break and rally behind them but a blatant political ad in the middle of the Olympics seems to me to be the exact opposite of what the Olympics stand for and really cheapens the viewing experience. Not the time or the place in my opinion.
Just curious if any of you feel the same way or are the Olympics fare political game?
