Soren Dayton, who works in McCain's political department, sent out the YouTube link of "Is Obama Wright?" on twitter at 12:31 today with the tag, "Good video on Obama and Wright." It has since been taken down.
Informed that Dayton was circulating the video, McCain spokeswoman Jill Hazelbaker said he had been suspended and "reprimanded by campaign leadership."
"We have been very clear on the type of campaign we intend to run and this staffer acted in violation of our policy," she said.
First the video that got the McCain aide suspended. It is 2 minutes and 39 second long and found at YouTube here.
Now this is no more than politics. Using Obama's own words to show his hypocrisy in regards to his Pastors words.
Lets go back a bit though, five months ago, when Obama, in response to Hillary Clinton, made another speech, one pounding home the importance of words.
24 second into this next speech I am going to show below, Barack Obama says:
"Dont' tell me that words don't matter.... I have a dream...
We owe these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal....
We have nothing to fear but fear itself....
That was all within the first minute of Obama's speech 5 months ago. Speech found at YouTube here.
Now....lets take a look at more words, shall we?
Specifically, Obama's Pastor, Jeremiah Wright's words. Words that Obama has now admitted he did hear at times over the 17 years he has been attending Wright's church and never quit the church.
Here the YouTube URL to listen to Jeremiah Wright saying "God Damn America", among other offensive, racist comments and the video is shown below:
Note to Barack Obama- Words DO matter Obama as does actions which it is true speak louder than words.
Your words that tried to rationalize Wright's disgusting sermons and your INACTION is doing nothing to distance yourself from the man himself.... speaks volumes.
Politics is a nasty business, but when a man says words do matter when it fits his agenda, then tries to rationalize words like Wright's, as Obama has done... he is right to be called out on it.
So, McCain's aide was suspended for highlighting Obama's hypocrisy and I can see why. McCain has promised to run a campaign as clean as possible, but I give great kudos to the creator of the original video above, because someone had to show by WORDS and actions, exactly what Barack Obama truly is.. a liar, a hypocrite and yes, I will say it loud and clear.. an unpatriotic con artist.
Nothing more...nothing less.
It is what it is.
