The scoop from Washington

Republicans launch anti-Obama website, video

| 6 Comments

CHICAGO--The Republican National Committee, in a preview of what's ahead, hits Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.), the likely Democratic presidential nominee, on his present votes as an Illinois state senator, taxes, Iraq war funding votes and his remarks that some voters "cling" to God and guns.

FROM THE REPUBLICAN NATIONAL COMMITTEE......

CanWeAsk.com provides Americans with an opportunity to submit text or video questions for Barack Obama regarding the issues he has failed to address or refused to answer, including:

-- Why, as an Illinois state Senator, did he vote "present" over 130
times instead of "yes" or "no" on difficult issues like abortion,
crime, and guns?
-- On fiscal responsibility, how he intends to pay for over $660 billion
in his new spending proposals and whether he can do it without raising
taxes on families and small businesses?
-- Why he voted against funding for our troops after promising not to use
them as pawns in a war funding debate?
-- Why did he tell donors in San Francisco that the economy has driven
small town voters to "cling" to guns and religion?

This is refreshing to see. Although I'm sure Obama and his people will call this a racist attack.

CRY ME A RIVER, I THINK JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE ALREADY MADE THAT SONG!

The DNC should demand this ad gets repealed.
It's creepy.
The bit with the helicopter darting around a close up of Barack's FACE is something out of a bad movie.
This ad should be PULLED immediately.

WAIT FOR THE DEBATES, OBAMA WILL EAT THIS GUY FOR LUNCH!
MCCAIN IS LIKE BUSH, THEIR ELEVATORS DON'T GO ALL THE WAY UP!
YOU CAN PLAY ALL THE CRAP YOU WANT, BUT SEE IF THIS GUY WANTS TO
DEBATE LIKE HILLARY DID, HE ISN'T THE SHARPEST KNIFE IN THE
DRAWER!
OBAMA DEFEATED HILLARY, MCCAIN IT'S YOUR TURN! TAKE IT LIKE A MAN!

i loved it!
of course he'd say "no, you can't ask me those questions," because he has everything but a legitimate answer to them

goldie,
your reasoning for having the ad pulled makes NO SENSE WHATSOEVER!
"i think it's creepy therefore i don't they should put it on tv!" you can't stop people from airing the truth
