No, it isn't.

ATS isn't my government and I don't have a right to be here.

As much as I like putting my feet up on the furniture around here, I'm just a guest.


The situations are not comparable in the least.

Did you arrive at that conclusion before or after you laughed at someone's 'alternative point of view'?

Or, did you arrive at that conclusion because your position is no longer defensible?

And I showed you mine without announcing I was taking my toys and going home to play.

I've never seen loam laugh so much. Methinks he is drinking on a Sunday. Or - he hit the lottery of Friday. Green bottles or green worthless green. One of the two.

Is that a valid argument?

Obama Campaign Tells TV Stations Not to Run NRA TV Ads

blogs.abcnews.com...

is ABC news ok?




In this letter sent this week to TV station managers from Obama campaign general counsel Bob Bauer, obtained by ABC News, the Obama campaign argues that a TV ad by the National Rifle Association should not air."Unlike federal candidates, independent political organizations do not have a 'right to command the use of broadcast facilities,'" Bauer writes. "Moreover, you have a duty 'to protect the public from false, misleading or deceptive advertising.'"

The Obama campaign takes issue with an ad called "Hunter," pointing out that claims in the ad were called "false" by Factcheck.org, and was given three Pinocchios by the Washington Post's "Factchecker."

"This advertising is false, misleading, and deceptive," writes Bauer. "We request that you immediately cease airing this advertising."

In response, Cleta Mitchell, Counsel to the NRA, fired back in a letter to station managers that the fact checkers in this case are wrong.

"We respectfully request that your station disregard the shamefully false assertions from the Obama campaign and its attorneys," Mitchell writes. You can read more of Mitchell's letter at the blog of Ben Smith of Politico, who reprinted it in full.

compare Governor Blunt’s allegations to those of the Clinton campaign.

husaria.files.wordpress.com...




This letter is not intended as a response to the Obama campaign’s letter. However, in the interest of a complete record, and in contrast to the alleged minor procedural problems noted by the Obama campaign, the Committee wishes to bring to your attention information we have received evidencing a premeditated and predesigned plan by the Obama campaign to engage in systematic corruption of the Party’s caucus procedures. Compounding this blatant distortion of the caucus rules was an egregious effort by the Obama campaign to manipulate the voter registration process in its own favor, thereby disenfranchising countless voters. Finally, the Committee has received a vast number of reliable reports of voter suppression and intimidation by the Obama campaign or its allies.





Voter Suppression and IntimidationThe Committee received a substantial number of disturbing reports from voters that they had been subject to harassment, intimidation or efforts to prevent them from voting. Some of the most egregious of these complaints are described below:

þ Voters at at-large caucus sites were informed that those sites were for Obama supporters only.

þ Clinton supporters at at-large caucus sites were told that their managers would be watching them while they caucused.

þ Workers were informed that their supervisors kept lists of Clinton and Obama supporters, and were told that they could not caucus unless their name was on the list of Obama supporters.

þ Many Clinton supporters were threatened with employment termination or other discipline if they caucused for Senator Clinton.

þ Workers were required to sign a pledge card to support Obama if they wanted time off to participate in the caucus.
þ Workers at one casino were offered a lavish lunch and permitted to attend and register to vote only if they agree to support Obama.

Now take into consideration the tactics he used to get elected in Chicago.

I am being fair and on topic. Obama's SUPPORTERS started the truth squad, not his campaign.

Sounds like Governor Blunt is "exaggerating" as regards what this "Truth Squad" is and does.


Source



On Wednesday, Obama’s Missouri campaign announced U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill would lead a group of Democratic lawmakers, prosecutors and one sheriff “who will be proactive in letting voters in the Show-Me State know the truth in the face of the distortions by the McCain campaign,” according to a news release.
...
The Missouri Truth Squad will “respond quickly, forcefully, and aggressively when John McCain or his allies launch inaccurate claims or character attacks about Barack Obama, or when they distort Barack Obama’s record or plans.”
...
Despite having law enforcement officials on the truth squad, none of them have publicly said they will invoke their official powers to enforce facts about Obama’s record.


This appears to be a manufactured controversy. But have a good time expressing outrage and indignation. You can be sure if Obama was quashing free speech, the law would stop him.

Sorry to say, but the only way of staying on topic and being fair is to be bias and paranoid. You should have read the T&C's.

As a community organizer, he had helped register thousands of voters. But when it came time to run for office, he employed Chicago rules to invalidate the voting petition signatures of three of his challengers. The move denied each of them, including incumbent Alice Palmer, a longtime Chicago activist, a place on the ballot. It cleared the way for Obama to run unopposed on the Democratic ticket in a heavily Democrat district.

"That was Chicago politics," said John Kass, a veteran Chicago Tribune columnist. "Knock out your opposition, challenge their petitions, destroy your enemy, right? It is how Barack Obama destroyed his enemies back in 1996 that conflicts with his message today. He may have gotten his start registering thousands of voters. But in that first race, he made sure voters had just one choice." But Palmer supporters, who did not want to be identified, said that she never anointed Obama as her successor and that the retelling of the story by Obama supporters is designed to distract from the fact he muscled his way into office.

One other opponent who Obama eliminated by challenging his petitions, Gha-is Askia, said he has no hard feelings today about the challenge and supports Obama's presidential aspirations.

But back at the time he was running for state Senate, Askia said, he was dismayed Obama would use such tactics.

"It wasn't honorable," he said. "I wouldn't have done it."

Is Blunt a Republican or a Democrat? If he is a Republican this statement is probably not worth the paper its printed on.

Furthermore, “Stealing Elections” reveals shocking truths about how Obama had the support of the notorious Chicago Daley machine that stops at nothing to win elections, how ACORN led “the worst case of voter-registration fraud” in Washington State’s history, and how the 2008 elections are on a collision course with controversy as disputed provisional votes, absentee ballots, and an army of lawyers disputing results all converge in closely contested states.

He is a Republican. And you're right. The charge of "prosecution" is all a scam. McCain and Palin have Truth Squads, too. It's all about spreading the truth. I just can't figure why people are against that...

Yes, he's a republican, and stepping down, too.

He's made a mess out of Mo Medicaid and he knows most people hate him.

This smacks of death throes on his part, IMO. Take down a democrat before I go.

Personally it seems that having a black man within distance of the white house in some other position than butler has sent the hard right over the deep end and into free fall... they will try any smear they can to prevent it.

No he has not stepped down.

Missouri top prosecutors announced this week that they will threaten and prosecute critics of Barack Obama.

Dear posters, in you heart you really, really, think/believe Obama is squeaky clean?

You really think he is any different then any other politician?

Now I would vote for a person regardless of political or religious affiliation, if I thought they were worthy.

Do people vote just because one is democrat or republican?

I think that is scary.

I just put your entire sentence in Google and it came up completely!
Linked to a bunch of blogs. Can't find anything from these two about them prosecuting, though. Just telling the truth.


There is no real source about prosecution.

Ok, my misunderstanding, but he is not seeking a second term, and has announced that publicly.

I don't know, do you really think he's done a great job? My family and I don't think so.

He knows he's going down, and he wants to take a final stab at democrats. Otherwise, he'd stick with the old chestnut that he's not running again because he's already accomplished everything he wanted to accomplish. Seems like he didn't really mean that when he said it.

And no, I don't think Obama is squeaky clean, but I sure as hell think he's a better bet than voting for someone who has picked a VP who's foreign policy is that she can almost see Russia from her house.
