WASHINGTON, DC One day after Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick pleaded guilty to two felony counts of obstructing justice by committing perjury and nocontest to one count of felonious assault for shoving a sheriffs deputy, The Freedom's Defense Fund (FDF) launched an ad in Macomb County, Michigan.
The ad calls into question Senator Obamas judgment and takes issue with the praise Obama lavished on Kilpatrick at the Detroit Economic Club in May 2007. The tag at the end of the ad asks the viewers, Do you know who Barack Obamas friends are?

For years, Kwame Kilpatrick has been considered among the most ethically challenged Mayors in America, said Todd Zirkle, Executive Director for the Freedom's Defense Fund. We believe Obama's comments praising Mr. Kilpatrick as a great mayor and a leader not just here in Detroit, not just in Michigan, but all across the country calls into question his judgment and is relevant to voters across Michigan and throughout America.
The ad is scheduled to run a saturated one-week schedule on cable news networks in Macomb County, Michigan.
We chose Macomb County for very strategic reasons, explained Zirkle. We believe it is difficult for liberal Democrats to win Michigan without Macomb County and we know it is extremely difficult for a Democrat to win the White House without carrying Michigan. We plan to extend this buy as resources and donations permit.
That's a great title for a GOP ad.
Hey Obama, as Roy Orbison sang...
Double thumbs up!! Play it nationwide. Start a series that includes all his sleazy ‘friends’.
The “clinging to their guns and religion” comment HAS to be made into an ad and ran in OH, PA, and MI. ASAP.
Can’t wait to see the response that’s dreamed up for this one.
It is not over. It is just beginning.
Macomb County has also been having some high profile problems with gangs from Detroit. In several instances, large groups of black teenagers have blocked major roads and pulled innocent bystanders out of their cars and beat them. Some have been caught on security tape at nearby convenience stores. Macomb County is ripe for this type of advertisement against Obama. Problem is there are lots of union types that live there..auto workers and teachers.
"Get him under that bus!"
Would be interesting to for someone to compile all the crimes all of obama’s friends have been convicted / charged / admitted to.
Could be a entire ad series.
Good ad. And up quick, too. The McCain team has been really on the ball the last month or so.
It’s coming, though certainly not from any MSM reporters. But then, the MSM needs investigating as well.
For the record, this is not affiliated with McCain’s campaign.
It is a 537c organization that takes donations.
Yes. Number them. Then people will want to have seen the whole series.
This will probably help OBAMA in Michigan
1) I just sent this group some $$$.
2) McCain or RNC could not run this ad because they would be accused of “racism”....
of course, it’s ok for the Messiah to run ads with McCain and Bush together.
This will cost Barry Michigan as it should
To quote his hero the Reverend, “the chickens are comm’n home to roost
