Group Ad to Connect Obama With Wright, Rezko And Ayers

According to The Politico, a conservative group called Judicial Confirmation Network, is spending a million dollars on an ad buy, with a video connecting Barack Obama with William Ayers, Jeremiah Wright and Tony Rezko.

It will air on networks in the smaller and more inexpensive markets across Ohio and Michigan. In Ohio, Zanesville, Lima, Toledo, Youngstown, and Wheeling-Steubenville. In Michigan, Marquette, Traverse City-Cadillac, Lansing, Kalamazoo-Battle Creek, Alpena. They're also buying time in Erie, Pennsylvania.

The video below can be found at YouTube.

The ad is narrated by Wendy Long from Judicial Confirmation Network.


Wendy: With the help of hundreds of thousands of Americans, the Judicial Confirmation Network fought for the nominations of Supreme Court Justices John Roberts and Sam Alito. The next President may nominate 4 new Justices. So we'd like you to see this....

VO: Choosing the right Justices is critical for America. We don't know who Barack Obama would choose, but we know this: He chose as one of his first financial backers a slumlord now convicted on 16 counts of corruption. Obama chose as an associate a man who helped to bomb the Pentagon and said he "didn't do enough." And Obama chose as his pastor a man who has blamed America for the 9/11 attacks. Obama chose to associate with these men, while voting against these men.

Wendy: Please join the Judicial Confirmation Network. We need a Supreme Court that respects the Constitution and Justices who won't legislate from the bench. Judicial Confirmation Network paid for this message and is responsible for it.

Ayers is a former member of the Weatherman Underground Organization, which organized the Chicago Riot in 1969 and bombed buildings in the 1970's.

(William "Bill" Ayers, 2001, Chicago Magazine, trampling on the American Flag)

In 2001 Ayers spoke about his setting off bombs on US soil, saying "I don't regret setting bombs. I feel we didn't do enough." That was reported by NYT.

Jeremiah Wright was Barack Obama's pastor for the better part of 20 years, who recently became news fodder when his sermons became available online showing him saying things like "God Damn America" and referring to 9/11 as the chickens coming home to roost.

An example of Wright's rhetoric that Obama sat and listened to for almost 20 years can be found at YouTube here.
