It's Time For Another Mike Rawlings Ad

Categories: Campaign News


Like Sam said: Mike Rawlings has raised more than $1 million in his quest to become the next mayor of Dallas -- or "nearly three times the combined haul of Ron Natinksy and David Kunkle." And he's determined to spend that dough: Moments ago his campaign posted Rawlings's latest ad (the theme: "It's Time"), which will debut today on local teevee and features cameos by Roger Staubach and council member Tennell Atkins. Very ... patriotic.

Good job Mike, you saved advertising money by ripping off the Texas Rangers' "It's Time" slogan from last year.

Also, I think there are more black people in this commercial than the typical Mike Rawlings voter will see in the next year.

This, more than anything of recent memory...really makes me want to throw up in my mouth.

This is the single biggest load of BS I have ever seen.

I say both of those phrases way too much these days...often one after the other. Commenting on real life, however, not campaign films.

It's time...to take a razor to a kid's bald head? For neighbors to actually know their neighbors? Public schools! Hah! It's time...for another "e" on "teevee".

Also, I wasn't aware public schools wore those uniforms. "strong public schools" ...videotaped in a private school.

The root of ignorance is to ignor. I'm probably the biggest Rawlings fan on this blog but this is not a public school. It's Saint Phillips. And yes schools where uniforms, but they are khakis and polos. But on the other hand I dont think DISD would let anyone tape their students for campaigns since they are a public school...hence the private school. But Tue point is not the school its our youth as a whole.

It's time....for Willis Johnson's son and his two-week old real estate company to take over (0:20)

"It's Morning in Dallas." Makes me think of the classic Reagan ad from the 1980's.

Sorry, doesn't have the gravitas...simply looks like a man who has lots of money to throw around like another ex-Mayor on his way to bigger and better things.
