Obama lost West Virginia in 2008 and is not considered popular there.
From the AP - 7/06/10 -
ARLINGTON, Va. Family, friends and employees went to the nation's most hallowed burial grounds Tuesday to bid farewell to Sen. Robert C. Byrd.
I think I agree with the Byrd family. Using a picture from the funeral is in bad taste.
It’s too bad we apparently don’t have any pictures of Meacham campaigning with Obama in 2008, but this is exploitive, using the two of them meeting at a funeral.

Brilliant. Such a photo will now get five times the exposure it would have received just as a tv commercial. It’s the optics, people.

It’s fair game!
How many times was Byrd INSENSITIVE to others?
I lost count.

Manchin and 0bama were there to pull the White Sheet over Byrd’s head for the last time.

Would they rather a photo of Byrd in his KKK robe be used?

Is this the picture that was used in the ad?

Election year garbage from the Byrd family.
Manchin is only six points ahead of the GOP candidate in West Virginia.
The “Ocomony” could take a very strong Democrat Senate candidate down in West Virginia.
That’s what drives this situation.

i>a statement by the family of Byrd....."His act is insulting to the memory of Robert Byrd and should have no place in a West Virginia political campaign."
