Was the Anti-CFPB Ad Too Over the Top?
Though undeniably well-done, an Orwellian anti-CFPB ad that ran during the Republican presidential debate last night was so over the top, it is likely to backfire, some observers believe. (Yes, those are pictures of CFPB Director Cordray and Sen. Warren on the large red banners in the back.) The ad, which portrays the CFPB as a Stalinist nightmare, ends with the message "Tell Congress to stop the CFPB." (See the ad here.) [11/11/15]
