Skip to comments.NRA Targets Obama-Biden in Ongoing Ad Buy (playing in CO, NM, and PA )
Posted on 09/23/2008 7:37:18 PM PDT by Red Steel
The National Rifle Association is likely to spend "in the eight figure range" on radio and television advertisements in the next 42 days as part of its efforts to deter undecided voters from voting for Barack Obama, according to an NRA spokesman. The group will air a series of ads starring group members that openly question Obama's commitment to protecting gun rights. Ads will air on radio stations and during local cable television ad breaks in Colorado and New Mexico through Oct. 5 and in Pennsylvania through Sept. 28, with plans to expand to other battleground states in the coming weeks.
One ad stars former Marine and Iraq war veteran Kurt Rusch. "Like all the guys I fought with in Iraq, I was honored to defend my country and our freedom. But when I got back stateside, I learned that Barack Obama opposes my right to own a handgun for self-defense. It's ridiculous," Rusch says in the spot, adding later in it: "There's no way I'm voting for a president" who would take away "the freedoms that I fought for, that my friends died to defend."
Another ad, called "Hunter", stars Kurt's father, Karl Rusch. "I gotta tell you, with the high cost of gas and just about everything else, we're all feeling pinched," Rusch says. "And now I learn that Barack Obama supports a huge new tax on my guns and ammo."
"Where is this guy from?" Rusch later asks. "He's probably never been hunting a day in his life." He concludes: "You don't have to be bitter to know Barack Obama isn't the kind of change we need."

Lets get in playing in Michigan and Virginia as well.
I saw this ad this evening. WOW!!!! It’s terrific. I hope they can show it often here in PA.
It’s a winner for McCain.
Good. My dues are paying off.
In the next few days, the NY Times and MSNBC will declare the NRA is “dishonest” and “distorting” Obama’s record.
The NRA Ads:
Way of Life - Obama TV Ad
Veteran - Obama TV Ad
Hunter — Obama TV ad
Pennsylvania Values - Joe Biden TV Ad
Excellent use of my donation dollars. :)
How racist is it to have a blond guy in their ad, I mean come on!
Someone needs to spend a lot of money on investigating and prosecuting voter fraud. IMO, Obama’s Marxist army will do anything to cheat in this election.
Ehh. that one is good, this one is the best out of the bunch:
I did not know that “bitter clingers” had a video component, and to be honest, it pisses me off, this arrogant SOB...
I agree, all the ads are great! GO MCCAIN/PALIN!
Lock, stock and two smoking barrels!
Those are very good. Just ordinary, down to earth Americans - far smarter and grounded than any of the “educated” snobs Obama falsely thinks make America tick.
Some of the PA coverage will bleed over into the PRNJ, a state where the Second Amendment is close to being a fond memory.
Molon labe, Barack Hussein, you loathsome liar and jive talking thug.
They just have kept a much, MUCH too low of a profile up until now...
it's time for them to hit, and hit hard before it's too late on those two gun-grabbing, liberal nut-cases!
It’s much more effective now, only 7 weeks from Election Day.
Why waste ammo?
