The NRA says Obama's camp are sending out these "intimidating cease and desist letters" to cable operators and television stations, threatening their FCC licenses if they run the ads. The NRA charged that "Obama and the DNC have been using strong-arm tactics reminiscent of Chicago machine politics to try and cover up the truth and silence NRA by forcing the stations to assist them in hiding Obama's radical anti-gun record."
And now, Obama and the DNC have opened a new front in their assault on your First Amendment rights by calling on their followers to contact these station managers to demand that the stations not run NRA-PVF's ads.
NRA stands behind the accuracy of these ads, and NRA attorneys have responded to the Obama campaign's despicable and abusive attempt to trample on the First Amendment by sending a thorough rebuttal to station managers. This rebuttal clearly and conclusively refutes the Obama campaign's fallacious claims that the ads are inaccurate.
The NRA has set up a web site detailing its position on Obama at www.gunbanobama.com.

Obama's SUPPORTERS started the truth squad, not his campaign.

I mean its just a statement from the governor himself, on his website, which is Republican slanted... in election year where Missouri is one of the battle ground states... while McCain is getting negative coverage... This STINKS of partinsanship.
Now until somebody can provide evidence as to whether Obama himself is actually abusing the law enforcement of Missouri and that this statement has nothing to do with a bias politically fueled Republican governor from one of the battle ground states, this little accusation holds no truth to it. Just talk.

Given the democrats desperate attempts
to change the outcome of the election in 2004 by going to the same Court in St.Louis and having a democrat Judge rule that the polls had to stay open until everyone standing in line had a chance to vote.(of course just for ST.Louis, not the whole state.)
The only real scandal Blunt has been in is violating the open records law. he was accused of deleting emails But that was never proven. And the person that made the accusations had recently been fired by the governor.
BH seems like I've been telling you a lot here lately to drop the blind party loyalty
The reason Blunt is making a big fuss over the truth Squads is these people hold elected positions And their actions could be construed as they are acting in official capacity and not as an unofficial capacity!
Like i said earlier i do live in Missouri so i'll keep you guys updated if there are reports of Obama's Campaign actually doing this.

WOOOOOHOOOOOOO Go Blunt!
Jefferson City, MO — Fired U.S. Attorney Bud Cummins told the LA Times in a story today that he fears he was fired because we was investigating criminal charges against Missouri Gov. Matt Blunt concerning his awarding of lucrative motor vehicle fee offices.

And what "scandals" are you talking about?
Filed in Jackson County Circuit Court, the suit names Blunt, three former or current top aides and the deputy Office of Administration commissioner, Richard AuBuchon.
The suit also contends that Blunt's chief of staff at the time, Ed Martin, ordered all staff members to make sure they were deleting e-mails. Martin and other top Blunt aides also are accused of orchestrating the destruction of the state's computer backup system for such e-mails.
The suit contends that the boxes were part of a "smear campaign'' by Blunt and his staff and accuses them of defamation of character.
The suit, filed in Jackson County Circuit Court, describes schemes within the governor’s office to destroy public documents, to evade the state Sunshine law by sending text messages on personal Blackberrys and to fire a long-time state employee for political reasons.
"They will be reminding voters that Barack Obama is a Christian who wants to cut taxes for anyone who makes less than $250,000 a year."

Part of the problem here is . . who gets to decide what is the truth ?
Although yes, I will win in court after a lot of time and legal expense.
This is intimidation, pure and simple,
Intimidation of any American for exercising their constitutional rights should be fought by every one of us - rep. or dem. or independent.
