Obama & Wright Co-star in Mississippi Special Election Ad

First Louisiana, then North Carolina, and now Missisippi...

http://www.politico.com/blogs/bensmith/0 408/Obama_stars_in_Mississippi_attack_ad .html


The Republican candidate in a special election to fill an unexpectedly contested seat in a conservative Mississippi congressional district is using recent controversies surrounding Senator Barack Obama to tar his Democratic rival.

A television ad from Southaven Mayor Greg Davis tells viewers that his Democratic rival, Travis Childers, a realtor and Prentiss County official, has accepted the endorsement of "liberal Barack Obama."

Then, with Childers' face beside footage of Rev. Jeremiah Wright, it says, "When Obama's pastor cursed America, blaming us for 9/11, Childers said nothing."

Then: "When Obama ridiculed rural folks for clinging to guns and religion, Childers said nothing."

"He took Obama's endorsement over our conservative values. Conservatives just can't trust Travis Childers," the ad concludes.

Unlike a much-reported North Carolina Republican ad attacking Obama, the Mississippi spot is actually airing on television.


The spot marks Obama's rapid ascent in conservative demonology, to a place in an attack ad in a contested race that -- until several weeks ago -- would have been lent to Teddy Kennedy or Hillary Clinton. A National Republican Congressional Committee spot airing in the same district seeks to link Childers to Obama, John Kerry, and Nancy Pelosi.

It's kind of funny just one or two months ago, Obamabots were arguing Hillary would hurt down tickets badly as conservatives would come out in droves because of her on top of the ticket. Guess what? Obama is actually the early frontrunner for conservative base's bogeyman in this election cycle.

Chickens are coming home to roost! Enjoy the video.

Todd got an

email about him from me earlier, but thanks for adding your voice. If a bunch of us email we have more power.

Re: Todd got an

Funny - I thought Todd was the appropriate person too.

Mine was short - just said "please delete this fool".  Subject: 'dittohead alert'.

And if that doesn't work, we can keep the pressure up by mounting "look, Rush Limbaugh wants Hillary to win!" arguments and thereby be sure that everyone has an interest in getting rid of 'chaos' here.

Re: Uh huh

Oddly enough I think this is only a race because of Operation Chaos.  3000 dittohead half-wits registered as Democrats and were unable to participate in the congressional primary, thus throwing the election to the less popular Davis and making it a real race against Childers, who in many ways is probably more conservative than his Republican opponent.

Gravelanche can defeat your negativity.

Re: Obama & Wright Co-star

Vile diary... this is just a fundriasing spot, I imagine will see a few ads like this pop up.  But the reaction to last weeks was terrible for the NC GOP - they cannot pull it off in the general.  Even Bushie Matt Dowd said that this morning.

Re:

This is one Republican State that Obama is expecting to win if he is the nominee... maybe not.

Re:

Working for Rush too, eh? Well, if so, that's good, at least you've found someone to give you guidance in your life, since you seem to lack any of your own.

If not, well, you're really helping further the dialog here, aren'tcha?

I hope Childers responds quickly and fast

to this type of Republican swiftboating. Democrats this election cycle should not let this type of vile propaganda unanswered.

Re: I did the deed

Good. And while you were at it, I hope you emailed someone about that asshole who wrote a diary about how Obama's going to be the first affirmative action president. I felt dirty after reading that.

You mean the

one where RK posted the picture of the cow...

Oh


   I didn't realize the GOP fear of our candidate was a weakness.

  It's so funny that you Clintonites are SO DAMNED SCARED of the GOP that you would let fear of them decide who DEMOCRATS nominate for President.

Re: Oh

Chaos is clearly GOP, not a Hillary supporter.

Re: Oh


   We've heard it many times from Alegre, Campskunk, Linc, TexasDarlin and other Clinton diehards.

  We can't nominate Obama b/c the GOP will eat him alive...they'll use this Wright stuff and Bitter stuff against him....therefore we can't nominate him.

  As if the GOP won't go after Hillary. It's just unbelievable...they would let the GOP DECIDE who we nominate.

you're so right about this

thank god someone gets that Obama is worse for the top of the ticket than Hillary. This Wright may have been the silver bullet for the GOP against Obama. The GOP is not gonna listen to McCain on this, of course they are gonna run ads like this, Wright is this year's Willie Horton. you might as well put him on the top of the ticket along with Wright as the running mate. Both candidates aren't good for the top of the ticket. But Hillary won't be as bad.

Before Obamabots say "you wish this on Obama" to me, NO I DON'T WISH IT, but it is there, and its not like I wanted it, but we can't get rid of it, so lets face the music: this guy is Michael Dukakis all over again

Re: you're so right about this

Understand the dynamics of this race before you generalize.  If a democrat wins here at all it's manna from heaven.
