    Now see what the billionaires from Texas are doing with the money they stole with the outrageous tax breaks, they’re buying millions of dollars worth of lies.
    It seems these Texas millionaires think they can hijack another election with a couple of bucks and cheap lies….they need to be locked up, they’re presently the greatest threat to America's stability and security.
    This also speaks for McCains integrity, he's yet to denounce these outrageous attacks and outright lies, birds of a feather.

    Obama seeks to silence ad tying him to 60s radical
    By JIM KUHNHENN, Associated Press Writer 18 minutes ago
    DENVER - Barack Obama is striking back fiercely and swiftly to stamp out an ad that links him to a 1960s radical, eager to demonstrate a far more aggressive response to attacks than John Kerry did when faced with the 2004 "Swift Boat" campaign


    The lone financier of the anti-Obama ad, Texas billionaire Harold Simmons, was also one of the main funders of the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth who targeted Kerry. Simmons, a McCain fundraiser, contributed nearly $2.9 million to the American Issues Project, according to documents filed by the group with the Federal Election Commission.

    Obama is a popularist, and the moneyed interests will stop at nothing to defeat him.

    They are scared sh*tless!

    Obama is tied to Ayers. There is no question except how deeply he sympathizes with the terrorist known as the Weatherman.

    http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0208/8630.html

    Obama’s relationship with Ayers is an especially vivid milepost on his rise, in record time, from a local official who unabashedly reflected a very liberal district to the leader of national movement based largely on the claim that he can transcend ideological divides.

    In one sense, Obama’s journey toward the cultural and political center is not unusual among national politicians. But its velocity is.


    Michelle Malkin Obama/Ayers gets an airing

    “Barack Obama is friends with Ayers, defending him as, quote, ‘Respectable’ and ‘Mainstream,’” the ad states. “Obama’s political career was launched in Ayers’ home. And the two served together on a left-wing board. Why would Barack Obama be friends with someone who bombed the Capitol and is proud of it? Do you know enough to elect Barack Obama?

    http://factcheck.barackobama.com/factcheck/2008/04/17/fact_check_on_clinton_attacks.php


    And the spin by the Obama campaign begins. I like how they don't mention that the damage caused by Ayers was from a bomb that he planted. In fact Ayers girlfriend at the time was killed while making a bomb.

    I especially like the line

    REALITY: OBAMA WAS EIGHT YEARS OLD WHEN THE WEATHERMEN WERE ACTIVE

    When the reality is that even though BHO knew that Ayers is nothing but a terrorist bomber, he STILL is friends with him and moves unabashedly with him in political circles.

    If people who set bombs in the attempt to kill government officials are OK in BHO's book, maybe the unabomber will get a cabinet post.

    LOL! Obama's team demands DOJ take the place of FEC and gets CNN and FOX to refuse the ads. THEN make an ad denouncing the charge, brilliant. What would have been fodder just for the political extremists goes mainstream. Dream team for certain.

    Chicago Mayor Richard Daley defends Obama


    There are a lot of reasons that Americans are angry about Washington politics. And one more example is the way Senator Obama’s opponents are playing guilt-by-association, tarring him because he happens to know Bill Ayers.
    I also know Bill Ayers. He worked with me in shaping our now nationally-renowned school reform program. He is a nationally-recognized distinguished professor of education at the University of Illinois/Chicago and a valued member of the Chicago community.

    It's Chicago. Ayers father and Richard J Daley were very good friends. Now, how did that Annenberg Chicago program go? We're all dying to get the details. :badgrin:

    If Bill Ayers is such a terrorist, why isn't he in jail?

    Smell that desperation?

    lets review some of the charges these liars have tried to pass off on us,shall we?

    Obama is a Muslim; Obama wasn't born in the USA; Obama doesn't take care of his brother; Obama is going to take away your guns; and my personal favorite Obama is a radical and if only Hillary had been nominated all us right wing cranks would have voted for her.

    Face it, boys, your rich boy, know-nothing, chickenhawk, notwit scion screwed up on every front, and the people are NOT amused.

    They know you guys are nothing but liars, now, and the American people are going to elect a BLACK MAN for POTUS.

    Learn to cope, just as we patriotic Americans have had to do, for the last eight years while your boy shit all over the America we love.

    When your party and its policies are a failure - when your people are not working Americans but the wealthy - what can America expect. There is no substance nor ethical behavior in the republican party today, but there are lots of single issue items they pretend to support which make the blind believers happy and gives the tools something to write about. We'll see if the American people can see through it this time.

    A vote for John McCain is a vote against the fundamental principle of America, the right of the individual to lead their life privately without the government interfering.
