    Obama Calls For Criminal Charges Against Ayers Ad Organization « In One Ear… Out the Other


    Obama Asks DOJ To Block Terrorist Ad, Investigate Donors

    so if by stop "news" you mean the illegal ads run as smears? then yes I'd say Obama wanted those stopped. Not exactly an issue you have much ground on considering how whiny the GOP has become over Palin...



    and ignoring the legislation he helped push through won't make it any less factual.

    Illegal ads? The DOJ declined to touch it! Illegal ads I don't think so.

    strolling, no, I don't think you can access where exactly the money goes and what it gets used for...mainly because most Senators don't disclose what they request the money for.
