Once again, Democrats are showing their hatred not just of the Second amendment of our Constitution, but also of the First.
Barack Obama's campaign is trying to block the American Issues Project (a 501c4 organization, just like Moveon.org) from running the ad below that calls into question his relationship with unrepentant Weather Underground murderer and bomber, William Ayers, whose home and hospitality was used by Barack Obama in 1995 for a meet and greet for the up and coming Obama and Chicago area intellectuals.
The Obama campaign, in a letter to radio and TV stations, said, "Your station is committed to operating in the public interest, an objective that cannot be satisfied by accepting for compensation material of such malicious falsity."
To the Obama campaign, what specifically is false in this ad? I have viewed the ad, and it merely states known, given facts. To any of my readers who support Obama, please specify the falsity in this ad?
Obama campaign attorney Bauer also wrote to Deputy Assistant Attorney General John C. Keeney, noting that the ad is a "knowing and willful attempt to evade the strictures of federal election law."
I'd like to know, also, Obamaniacs, what stricture of federal election law this ad is knowingly and willfully violating. Apparently, so would Mr. Bauer, since he fails to point that out.
Finally, while the McCain campaign can legally have no coordination with the American Issues Project (just as the Obama campaign can have none with Moveon), that didn't stop them from accusing McCain of trying to further this link, in an Obama attack ad, they say, "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." As though the fact that Barack was only 8 when Ayers was killing somehow absolves him. Geez, if Joe Biden gets to be a Pennsylvanian because he lived there until he was 11, then Barack Obama should have known something about Bill Ayers when he was 8.
I hate to keep harping on this, but if the Obama camp is going to continue to use his youth as an excuse for why he did stupid things (or why we should dismiss them as things "of the past"), let me remind all that while Bill Ayers was blowing up or plotting to blow up the Pentagon, NYC PD, and the Capital, and Barack Obama was learning to divide, Joe Biden was cavorting around some college campus somewhere, and John McCain was in his second year at the Hanoi Hilton.
Who would you trust to lead your country?
