Obama is trying to stop TV stations from airing the Ayres ad. Says he will punish those stations who run it.

Once again, scratch a liberal, find a fascist. Can you imagine the outcry from the left if McCain were doing this? Or if President Bush had done this?



ďThis is a sad ploy to circumvent the First Amendment by a campaign who has no arguments with the merits of our ad. Itís the classic maneuver: If you canít win on the merits, file a lawsuit,Ē said a spokesman for the American Issues Project, Christian Pinkston

Amen to that!

And he is supposed to be a liberal? He wants the ad pulled because the ad is doing damage. I have seen it several times here in Ohio.

Wonder how many bricks he crapped when he first saw the ad.

A second letter (http://www.politico.com/blogs/bensmith/0808/Obama_camp_Prosecute_Simmons.html) has been sent. Now Obama is asking that the donor be prosecuted for running a political ad.

I expect a lot of broadcasting stations will have their licenses suddenly revoked if the Annointed One is elected.

The American Issues Project released a statement responding to the letter.


"Having failed in its attempts to get our legal, factual and fully-supported ad off the air, Barack Obama's campaign now wants to put our donors in prison for exercising their right to free speech," said Ed Martin, the group's president. "These over-the-top bullying tactics are reminiscent of the kind of censorship one would see in a Stalinist dictatorship, with the only difference being that those guys generally had to wait until they were in power to throw people who disagreed with them into jail."
