The conservative group, American Issues Project, has produced an ad tying Barack Obama to 60’s radical (and present day thug) William Ayers. The ad points out Ayers radical war waged against America in the 60’s along with Obama’s comments that Ayers is “mainstream” and “respectable”!
Obama is taking his “Chicago-style” approach and trying to silence the ad by intimidating TV stations and also by trying to involve the Justice Department….I kid you not!
Here’s the ad:
I guess when that facade of “touchy-feely-hopey-changey” is lifted up and exposed, our true actions will shine through….can you say First Amendement rights? Can you say lefty Democratic candidate trying to silence those who would expose his background?
Barack Obama said long ago (I forget where or when I heard him say it) that he thought John Kerry had not fought back hard enough or quick enough against the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth. (Never mind that the Swift Boat Veterans had truth on their side).
It seems to me that Obama remembers that thought and is working hard and quickly to silence anyone that dares bring up a TRUTH about him….
Fox News and CNN have declined to air the anti-Obama ad. But by Monday afternoon, the ad had run about 150 times in local markets in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Virginia and Michigan, according to Evan Tracey, head of TNS Media Intelligence/Campaign Media Analysis Group, an ad tracking firm.
Obama spokesman Tommy Vietor said Obama supporters have inundated stations that are airing the ad, many of them owned by Sinclair Communications, with 93,000 e-mails. He called the ad false, despicable and outrageous.
“Other stations that follow Sinclair’s lead should expect a similar response from people who don’t want the political discourse cheapened with these false, negative attacks,” Vietor said.
Mr. Vietor, explain what is false and negative in those ads?
More from Breitbart:
In the Obama campaign’s own response ad, an announcer states: “With all our problems, why is John McCain talking about the 60s, trying to link Barack Obama to radical Bill Ayers. McCain knows Obama denounced Ayers’ crimes, committed when Obama was just 8 years old.”
The McCain campaign cannot coordinate efforts with outside groups. But the campaign took advantage of being the target of the response ad.
“The fact that Barack Obama chose to launch his political career at the home of an unrepentant terrorist raises more questions about Senator Obama’s judgment than any TV ad ever could,” said McCain spokesman Brian Rogers.
