Floyd Brown, the guy that brought us the Willie Horton ad against Mike Dukakis, is back and has a new Willie Horton style ad this time aimed at Barack Obama. He is part of a new web site called ExposeObama.com. They call themselves the Obama truth squad, and they plan more attack ads in the coming months aimed at exposing Obama.
Here is the Willie Horton style attack ad launched by this attack group;
The North Carolina GOP party has an attacked ad aimed at local politicians Bev Perdue and Richard Moore for Governor that takes on Obama’s relationship with Rev. Wright. Both Perdue and Moore have endorsed Obama for President. This ad claims that Obama is to extreme for North Carolina, and Perdue and Moore are showing poor judgment by endorsing Obama for President. John McCain has tried to distance himself from this ad. Obama has said, if McCain “thinks that itâ€™s an inappropriate ad, that he can get them to pull it down since heâ€™s their nominee and standard bearer.” I wonder if Obama will also pull attack ads planned by MoveOn.org? There have been rumors that the North Carolina GOP have decided to pull the ad, but they deny those rumors. Republican chairwoman Linda Daves said, “I canâ€™t be emphatic enough that weâ€™re running the ad. We are not pulling the ad. It has never been a consideration for us to pull the ad.” Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean said this ad was a test of John McCain’s leadership and issued the following statement about the ad: “If he can’t pick up the phone and make members of his own party stop airing a television ad he claims to oppose, how can he lead our country through an economic crisis or the war in Iraq? After shifting his positions on gun control, immigration and tax cuts throughout this campaign, McCain should not equivocate on this issue. Making a show of releasing your emails to the press is not leadership. If he is serious, he will get this ad pulled.”
Just in case they do pull the ad, here is the attack ad from the North Carolina GOP;
