NRA begins swiftboating Obama
The NRA has stated they will spend roughly $40 million dollars to defeat Obama. We can read that as code for a gigantic swiftboating campaign.
They have begun by lying their collective asses off about his second amendment position. The graphic below, courtesy of Politico, is the back of a wallet-sized card the NRA is handing out, evidently so their neanderthal supporters can rip it out and start ticking off all the falsehoods about Obama at a moments notice. Notice number 10- Wouldn’t one think Weathervane McCain would do the same? Of course its position on the card is tantamount to push-polling tactics.
Factcheck.org has the bald-faced lies up on their site and debunks the blatant lies and half-truths. Check it out.
Next up, we have the ads they are going to run nation-wide using two assholes named Kurt and Karl Rusch. Krazy Karl claims to be a veteran and a staunch knuckle-dragging, card-carrying NRA member. They are short ads thank god, so check them out below.
Kurt is a real gem isn’t he?
Ah yes, veterans, patriotism and a scary black man who wants to take all the guns away from white folks….all in one sixty second commercial.
Swiftboating works for the reichwingers….it’s a shame that a cross-section of the American voting public buys into them. I was a card-carrying member of the NRA until they got all political and full of bullshit and bravado.
I own a handgun and have my entire adult life, I was taught to shoot and handle them as a young adult by my father who had what some might consider a damn arsenal. I believe in our second amendment right to own guns.
But I swear to Buddha, I am so sick of this type of campaigning…I could go postal on the asshole that thought this friggin crap up and I wouldn’t even blink a brown eye as I squeezed the trigger. Yes, I am that pissed..
