Hardball Season Opens

The political operative behind the Willie Horton ad that helped defeat Michael Dukakis in the 1988 presidential race is releasing a new ad this week targeting Democratic White House hopeful Barack Obama.

Floyd Brown, a longtime conservative strategist who heads the conservative National Campaign Fund, said he is launching the ad to expose Obama’s weakness on gang violence.

“The ad draws a parallel between Obama’s weakness on gang violence and the war on terror,” said Brown. Brown is the former head of Citizens United, which claims to be the largest political action group for conservatives in the United States.

I was actually a mild supporter of Obama up until early February. Then some weird things started coming to light about him and those around him. It has also become apparent that the MSM is so deeply in the bag for him. Finally, I don't support anyone who place victim cards and the people in his campaign are playing the race card on a regular basis in order to shut down debate. If he gets in, along with a majority Democrat Congress, God help us all.
