Bob Jump, the voice behind Republican ads

Friday, October 10, 2008

You may not know Bob Jump's face. But you probably know his voice. Jump is the man behind many of the Republican Party’s political ads, along with more conventional product advertising. He's voiced ads for John McCain, Ron Paul and dozens of Republican candidates from across the country.

Apparently the paycheck must have been very good for Mr. Jump to continue to "sell" the Republican myth of strength, wisdom and security. They were the architects of the financial catastrophe America is experiencing. But you'd never know if from Mr. Jump's glib comment at the beginning of the segment, "Wow! With the markets plunging this morning, I guess I'm the comic relief this morning." Ha Ha.

'Voice artists' do have a choice about who and what they want to "sell" to the American people. It's called principles. Otherwise, they'd call themselves 'voice mercenaries.'

It's clear that is how Mr. Jump has chosen to brand himself. And he's laughing all the way to the bank... if it's still solvent.
