How Much Do You Really Know About Obama?
The American Issues Project today announced the debut of a new television advertising campaign examining the relationship between Sen. Barack Obama and unrepentant 1960’s domestic terrorist, William Ayers. The ad — entitled “Know Enough?” — begins with a simple, yet pointed question: “Beyond the speeches, how much do you really know about Barack Obama?”
Supported by over one hundred pages of back-up documentation and historical accounts, the American Issues Project is using this ad to shed light on Obama’s friendship with Ayers, the former leader of an American terrorist group known as Weather Underground.
Remarkably, Ayers’ group claimed responsibility for the bombings of a New York City Police headquarters, the US Capitol Building, and the Pentagon in the 1970s. Years later, Ayers proudly claims his group “didn’t do enough.”
“Given the real time news cycle we live in today, many important issues and controversies that impact our country simply do not receive the time and examination they deserve,” said Ed Martin, president of the American Issues Project. “We are in this for the long haul and look forward to engaging in a broad range of issues well beyond the campaign. The launch of our immediate advocacy effort is a direct response to Obama’s rejection of public financing, which will allow the liberal 527s and other leftist organizations to dramatically outspend conservatives this election cycle.”
