Obama Will Cost Va. Jobs, RNC Says in Ad

Tim Craig

The Republican National Committee is airing a new Virginia-specific ad to raise questions about whether Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama would slash defense spending.

The ad seeks to tie Obama to U.S. Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), who was quoted last week as saying Democrats in Congress may seek a 25 percent cut in defense spending.

"America's safety depends on Virginia, and Virginia's economy depends on our military," a narrator says. "But what would happen if Barack Obama wins? One of Obama's top allies in Congress has already announced plans to cut our military by 25 percent. Twenty-five percent. What would that mean for your job?"

Kevin Griffis, an Obama spokesman, called the ad "dishonest and dishonorable." Griffis noted Obama has called for more defense spending, including additional ground forces to "finally finish the fight against Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda."

If there was a white Presidential candidate who was found to be a member of a racist church, same as the Rev. Wright's church except substitute "white values" for "black values" and visa vera, THE MEDIA WOULD BE IN TOTAL ATTACK MODE AGAINST THAT WHITE CANDIDATE.


Washington Post - there are a lot of Churches in Chicago which are black and which are not racist - Obama did not have to give $20,000.00 to this one Church - STOP GIVING OBAMA A PASS ON HIS RACISM AGAINST WHITES.





Exactly right he's racist. Just listen to Irreverend Wrong, his pastor for many, many years.

Exactly right he's socialist. Just listen to him admit it to Joe the Plumber, or his interviews in the past.

Exactly right he's a rotten human being. Just look at his abortion voting record.

Exactly right he has questionable judgment. Just look at his associations with people in his past.

Exactly right he's corrupt. Just look at the Rezko land deal.

Exactly right he's a liar. Just look at what he says about taxes vs. how he's actually voted.

Exactly right he has no executive experience. Just look at his resume -- or lack thereof.

Exactly right he's secretive. Just look at his lack of birth certificate, SAT scores, grades, etc. etc., etc.

Exactly right he'll be challenged in his first 6 months of office if elected. Just look at what he says about meeting unconditionally with world leaders.

We cannot be SERIOUS about electing this guy!! Obama in charge of nukes?! What. The.

Sorry George Washington, we messed everything up.

We stopped demanding the best people in the White House.

The RNC ran an ad last night with direct quotes out of Sen. Obama's mouth about cutting NMD, and FCS. Both large employers in the NOVA area. He'll cut tons of DoD and NASA R&D funds.....also tons of jobs in the DC region.

Voting for Sen. Obama is like shooting yourself in the wallet.

Though that would be a huge 'tax cut' for folks.....
