Keep your nose out of Missouri Barry, we can handle things just fine without you.
Isn’t the Obama campaign afraid it will get prosecuted? I thought the lying, dishonest ads came from Democrats.
Great idea, Barry. Let’s start with the lie that McCain wants to fight in Iraq for 100 years. And you approved that ad.
Or how about the current horrible ad of one of your 527s that shows McCain’s post-op scar on his cheek and tells us he is going to die in office? The cretins who came up with that one should certainly be prosecuted.
The Messiah speaks and the hords listen and follow like sheep on Kool-aid . Amazing !
BOTH OBAMA AND OSAMA HAVE
FRIENDS WHO BOMBED THE PENTAGON
Someone needs to mass produce this as a bumper sticker! There's still plenty of time before the election.
That would mean cancelling virtually ALL of Obama’s advertising.
This however, this “Truth Squad” driven by candidates, involving partisan prosecutors and sheriffs, THIS is what will trigger the sort of breakdown that would unravel any demeanor of civility in this country. Assault the First Amendment, prosecute political adversaries for not adhering to speech codes as defined by the partisan politicians and their lackeys in law enforcement, and watch what happens next.
Obama is treading on very dangerous ground here. VERY dangerous. And the station covering this, and the prosecutors discussing it seem blithely unaware of what is really going on here.
Translation: Don’t let “them” say anything bad about the Obamessiah, or he MAY cry!!!
Another load of BS.
Germany and Russia controlled the people by controlling what could be said personally or by the press. If elected, Obama with his ACORN thugs will destroy free speech in this nation.

Subject: Proper use of Criminal Justice Resources
Why are you threatening to use government resources to prosecute political enemies?
I saw a video tape on WMOV featuring you as a member of the so-called “Obama Truth Squad” saying you would officially “remind voters that Barack Obama is a Christian who wants to cut taxes for anyone making under $250,000 per year.”
Are you doing this on government time, using government money? How is this a part of the function of government for the city of St. Louis?
Your mission statement says: “To pursue justice for all citizens within the highest standards of ethical behavior and professionalism.”
“We want to keep this campaign focused on issues. We don’t want people to get distracted - Missourians don’t want to be distracted - by these divisive character attacks. So we’re here to respond to any character attacks, to set the record straight...” Your comments were cut off at that point.
“Missourians don’t want to be distracted” - so you’ve decided that you speak for all of Missouri? No one is allowed to counter the claims of Mr. Obama? I think you said it right the first time, “*WE* DON’T WANT PEOPLE TO GET DISTRACTED...” You, as a government official with police power behind you, will use your authority to track down dissent and put an end to it, with official authority, I assume.
If I were your supervisor I’d have your resignation on my desk first thing in the morning for making a statement like this to the press while in your official capacity. This and the actions of like-minded sheriffs and other members of law enforcement are completely outside the bounds of your duties and authority. It isn’t the job of attorneys or sheriffs to be concerned about what individuals say about a political candidate they favor, unless the First Amendment was overturned last night. And have you extinguished violent crime in St. Louis and now can use police powers to harass law-abiding citizens for exercising God-given rights our forefathers died to protect?
How do you justify participating in a so-called “Obama Truth Squad” in your capacity as an attorney for the City of St. Louis? Is it your opinion that your official duties include hunting down political opponents who dare to criticize Mr. Obama, using the power and resources of the City of St. Louis? May we please see that your job description so we can determine if this is part of what you are paid to do? Do your supervisors and constituents approve of your using government resources and time to go after political opponents? Is it now the policy of the City of St. Louis to intervene in civil matters (unless libel is now a criminal offense in Missouri, if so, all the more reason never to move there!) when your office represents CRIMINAL matters?
The video has put a deep fear of government into my heart. I thought we’d never have a police state, but I guess we are on the way to having one now. To think that a senator campaigning for president has the power to wield police power against his enemies. This isn’t the United States I was raised in.
I work for a company based in St. Louis. Thank heavens I do not live there. Hugo Chavez, you have some warm friends waiting your advice in the office of the City of St. Louis.
Are you going to prosecute me for writing to you? I am almost afraid to send this to you, for fear of government retribution. You have most of the guns and money, after all.
Welcome to New Canada, please surrender your banned thoughts at the border.

Greetings fellow FReeper thought criminals.
And yet the DUmmies complain when anarkids are arrests for breaking windows and assembling pee and poop bombs in St. Paul, along with molotov cocktails. Either way the election goes in November, there will likely be civil war afterwards. Yes, even if Obama loses, the lefties are going to throw a temper tantrum like you have never seen.
Will they be issued brown shirts?
Thank God I'm not in Missouri, where it's illegal to campaign against Democrats.
They should be impeached or recalled, if possible.
Certainly defeated in their next elections.
“The Barack Obama campaign is asking Missouri law enforcement to target anyone who lies or runs a misleading TV ad during the presidential campaign.”
After much reflection I have now come to the uncomfortable conclusion that Obama WANTS to cause dissension and strife in our country... maybe even riots if he loses the election.
This is VERY SERIOUS and needs to be nipped in the bud NOW by ANY and ALL LEGAL means at our disposal!
The nasty little fascist and his brawn shirts must be stopped!
Perhaps the United States Department of Justice can be encouraged to look into this.
