On Wednesday, John McCain demanded that the North Carolina Republican Party remove a TV ad featuring Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s “God damn America” sermon which is being used to portray two Democratic gubernatorial candidates who support Barack Obama as “too extreme.” “There is no place for that kind of campaigning,” said the Republican nominee for president. Memo to Sen. McCain: wake up and smell the coffee.
The 20-year relationship between Barack Obama and his anti-American, black separatist “mentor” is fair game. So are his political associations with former Weather Underground terrorists William Ayers and Bernadette Dohrn and his “close friendship” with indicted real estate developer Tony Rezko.
Mr. Obama is not running for college president on some lunatic left-wing campus, Senator. He’s running for the most powerful office in the world, and the public ought to be well acquainted with the company he’s kept and keeping–loud and often.
Incredible as it seems from here, perhaps you’re still naive enough to believe the media which has treated you with kid gloves whenever you tilted left is going to give you even-handed coverage once the slug-fest between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama produces a winner. One would think the hit-piece published by the New York Times regarding your ostensible extra-marital affair–a compendium of innuendoes, shoddy reporting and outright lies–would have given you a clue as to what is coming.
Either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama will do anything and everything to undermine your candidacy. How do I know? Take a good look at what they’re doing to EACH OTHER, Senator. Multiply by ten.
This is one American who’s damn tired of a Republican candidate for president who thinks going toe-to-toe with two irredeemable socialists is “unseemly.” Better to “disrespect” them than that part of the American electorate–hopefully a majority–which yearns to see a Republican show a little backbone. Nothing is more “hardball” than a presidential election.
“Man up,” Mr. McCain.
