Blah blah blah. Politicians are all talk and no action. Instead of saying "you didn't build that." FirstBank says "Thank you," to the small business owners who actually do create jobs and keep the economy going. So much satire in this election-themed spot. Not the least of which is the fact that the candidates are puppets. This ad aired during the debates (I assume regionally in Arizona, California and Colorado where the banks are located) during the first debate. I'll bet it was hard to tell where the debate ended and this began.
