Does McCain even know about this? There’s so much that he can say about Hussein that he doesn’t. I’m beginning to be dissapointed in him. He’s missing too many opportunities to wipe him out once and for all. He said very little about Hussein undermining the Bush admin on troop withdrawals, he didn’t call out Obama’s $ from Fannie/Freddie, just too many things to list. Where is he????
Email everyone you can about this. This is bad.
OK, but it wasn’t evident. I apologize for rocketing off at you. This is such a frustrating situation and the Democrats are so damn corrupt!
You spoke too soon. This ad just came out. He did mention it in the debate last night also.
I wish I had your optimism.I live in the NY area and even otherwise rational people are all in for Obama. It boggles the mind.
I hope and pray you're right. But there seem to be a lot of supposedly intelligent people who are buying his BS. It's downright scary.
What if someone runs an ad about Oafama’s effeminate, crack head days, the gay old days, when he wasn’t so uptight? Just kidding, I know he has had to overcome his Omomma, and a rough, racially confusing childhood, and other shortcomings, like his ears.
Nice idea, Mr. “Liberal”. People disagree with you, just sick the police on them. Another example of Democrats espousing certain ideals, and doing JUST THE OPPOSITE when it doesn’t suit them.
Please keep this up, Obama. It’s good for the people to see beforehand what you will be really like if elected.
His poll numbers are up and the Obamassiah complex is back.
His true arrogant demeanor is starting to ooze out from his phoney flag-pin-wearing-patriot cover.
Every FR member should take a moment to send an email to Governor Blunt praising and thanking him for his statement condemning Obama’s actions that infringe our first amendment rights and threaten our very liberty. Contact him at http://governor.mo.gov/constituentform.htm.
But you can reply here:
I think people in Missouri should dare these thugs to arrest them for political speech. Those making the threats will be facing felony charges in a federal courtroom so fast, it’ll make their heads spin.
But I bet they can get your ISP address and find you. :(
So if you listen to Obama’s speeches — that is, for as long as I can stand his squeak measly little voice — I’m most of what he’s saying makes him culpable for arrest in Missouri, Pennsylvania and Ohio because he is making misleading statements.
Most recent, for instance, is that George Bush has gotten us into this hole and McCain was carrying a shovel. And the hole that “Bush got us into” happened to have started back in Carter’s days, was perpetuated by nothing other than Bill Clinton and then bequeathed to Bush.
Anything that Obama says t the contrary is a lie and misleading.
Will Obama’s truth squad now try to go after the governor?
Will Obama’s truth squad now try to go after the governor?
Thou shall not permit an abomination to live?
I saw the ad and it is good, but I don’t recall him talking about the gestapo tactics being used in MO in the debate. Did I miss something?
I just changed my tagline.
” Too many people are drinking this kool-aid. I honestly dont get it. A principled American of any political persuasion should be appalled and scared by this increasing trend. But they arent...”
That’s because many of them don’t use the net, or so obsessed with seeing this charlatan become President that they don’t care..............
Where is Al Gore when you need him? Three years ago, the former vice president blasted "digital brownshirts" who "harass and hector any journalist who is critical of the president." He meant the mortal threat to the Republic of bloggers and angry Republican e-mailers. But times change, and the digital legions are greater nowadays on Mr. Gore's side. Thus we don't hear much fretting at all about the Obama Action Wire, which, unlike the brownshirts of yore, is actually managed by Barack Obama's campaign to muzzle critical media.
Here's how it works. A message goes out over Barack Obama's Web site with the names, phone numbers and e-mails of editors and producers foolish enough to host Obama critics. With Mr. Obama's extensive digital following, and his extensive fund-raising and contact lists, shutting up the Democratic nominee's critics with a fraction of Mr. Obama's millions of supporters is relatively simple. The digital legions plug phone lines, crash servers and intimidate the advertisers of these media outlets. This must be another instance of the "new" politics that Mr. Obama frequently talks about.
The latest incident, reported in the Chicago Tribune, "orchestrated a massive stream of complaints on the phone lines of Tribune Co.-owned WGN-AM in Chicago. "The offense: The station hosted National Review's David Freddoso, author of 'The Case Against Barack Obama: The Unlikely Rise and Unexamined Agenda of the Media's Favorite Candidate,' a fair and rigorous but adversarial examination of Mr. Obama's record. Surely, we can't have any of that.
"The Action Wire serves as a means of arming our supporters with the facts to take on those who spread lies about Barack Obama and respond forcefully with the truth, whether it's an author passing off fiction as biography, a Web site spreading baseless conspiracy theories or a TV station airing an ad that makes demonstrably false claims," Obama spokesman Ben LaBolt told the Tribune.
How Orwellian. Mr. LaBolt defends the very actions that prevent WGN-AM and others from airing the facts, as though obstructionism is an "airing of facts."
Note to the Obama campaign: Informed observers don't get "the facts" only from a political campaign. They read and listen to the independent media outlets - the same outlets the thin-skinned Mr. Obama is currently trying to quash.
Check out my most recent tagline. Tell you the truth, I like your saying better....
I would imagine that Drudge understands full well that his work, online, could be yanked and he could be prosecuted, to the full extent of the law, should this be allowed.
Did you catch what the video on KMOV stated: The O is a Christian (very debatable) and that he intends to lower taxes on 95% of the public (very, very, very debatable) as the complete truth.
This is more than frickin scary. I agreed yesterday to work on McCain's phone outreach program here in St. Louis Co. Should I be afraid? If I should, I do not care. Screw this and the brown shirts that wish to shut me up.
I would say more, but I would owe lots to the cuss jar.
You can’t be serious-
Great point. Let’s not forget that Hitler was a legally elected Chancellor of Germany.
Just one thing...when is Kristalnacht?
Those articles on Drudge have now disappeared-—unless my eyesight has gotten bad within the last few minutes.
I don’t see them anymore, either.
Where do you think they went? The word “Missouri” does not appear on Drudge’s page.
“i think they might overdose this election...”
one can only hope.
We ended up with Governor Sebelius because the RINOs in Kansas gave in to her legal threats about factual ads.
Three cheers for Gov Blunt! Can we borrow him?
I found this
Totally violates First Amendment prior restraint provision.
And the difference between a Hitler rally and an Obama rally is that Adolph had better taste in music.

About the only nice thing one could say about that genocidal maniac.
I am hopeful he is gathering more information and sources and will break it with a flashing red light.
I am hopeful too. I am fearful something more sinister is afoot.
So do your part to make sure it doesn't happen.
Have great friends in Westchester and he has McCain signs and shirts and has a few irrate Dems, but he has gotten many, many quiet compliments!
Can you imagine if Bush had a truth squad out? We would be hearing it from the roof tops from sea to shining sea.
Obama Campaign is still running the lying ad here in Virginia, where he claims that if McCain had had his way all the old people on Social Security would have lost their SS money in the stock market.
Even Factcheck had to admit the ad was a lie on multiple levels — first that NO proposal effected anybody over the age of 50, second that no proposal would cut anybody SS by more than 25%, and 3rd that only a small part of SS would ever be in private accounts.
If the Marxist gets into the WH I predict July 4, 2009 and it won't be the synagogues that are attacked it will be conservative churches.
Oh, but I am serious.
