Video: North Carolina GOP hits Obama over Wright — over RNC’s objections

posted at 10:40 am on April 23, 2008 by Allahpundit

That’s the word from NBC; Team Maverick has already leaped to denounce it. The most interesting aspect? The timing. The two Democrats mentioned in the clip, Perdue and Moore, are running against each other in the gubernatorial primary. There’s no reason for the state GOP to attack both of them now, before either’s been nominated — unless they’re looking for an excuse to get this up on the air to help Hillary on May 6. Which is fair: Like the Journal says, “[T]he real winner from the six week Pennsylvania primary campaign was the Republican Party.” It’s only proper that we return the favor.

Update: Via Patrick Ishmael and News Buckit, McCain can whine all he wants now but here’s the sort of ad he’ll be running by late October:

Rev. Wright needs to run 100,000,000 times on TV between now and November.

There is nothing offensive in that ad.

If Obama is offended by Rev. Wright, perhaps he should have left his Racist, America-Hating church 19 years and 11 months ago.

Additional Thoughts:

John McCain is doing the right thing by taking the high road.

He does not need to run or endorse the ads, they will get out there anyways.

Between now and November, you are going to have every left wing media outlet in America from the NYT to NBC talling us that if you vote for McCain, you are a racist, it is only fair to show which candidate has spen two decades arm in aem with a real racist.

Um, what exactly is so wrong about hitting Obama with his associations with Wright?

Why should McCain denounce this? Obama listened to that creep Wright preach hatred for 20 years, and what we know is just the stuff that was videotaped. God only knows what Wright said when the cameras weren’t rolling.

amkun on April 23, 2008 at 10:58 AM

Chickens coming home to roost, Bambi, Ayers remarks from 2007 coupled with this will make Obama the black Mondale.

NoDonkey on April 23, 2008 at 10:58 AM

If John McCain, the presumptive Republican candidate, doesn’t think his opponent’s association with Jeremiah Wright’s positions is an issue, why should anyone else? If Obama’s problems are a gift to McCain, McCain seems intent on returning the favor.

I have said it repeatedly, if McCain isn’t going to fight, he isn’t to win.

suzieviews on April 23, 2008 at 11:00 AM

McCain’s goal right now is the same as George W. Bush’s in 2000 — give the Democrats and the media nothing to gin up a fake controversy with, which dictates an almost passive campaign (a strategy that only works if you consider your opponent to be such a total train wreck the majority of voters in November will see that for themselves and cast ballots accordingly). Not that the Democrats won’t try to create a “crisis” — back in 2000 used the National Guard story and even the James Byrd dragging death to try and tar Bush, then tried to bring the Guard story back four years later, and they’re doing similar things right now with the ads over McCain’s temper and his disability benefits.

Wimpy, lame stuff, which is how the McCain camp wants to keep it. The North Carolina GOP, on the other hand, has its own local issues to deal with, which includes delighting in trying to keep the Hillary-Obama battle going as long as possible. The ad could be seized on by Democrats to attack McCain, but odds are that’s going to be negated by some impending assault by Hillary and/or Bill on Wright’s ties to Obama during the N.C. primary or in one of the other remaining primary races.

jon1979 on April 23, 2008 at 11:01 AM

McCain will hit Obama HARD with Ayers/Dohrn in the late summer/fall time frame. I know we all recognize the mug shots, but by November I’m gonna guess that the vast majority of US voters will as well.

It’s hard to scream racist when the terrorists in question are whiter than mashed potatoes.

funky chicken on April 23, 2008 at 11:04 AM

I’m SO tired of our party at the National level being a bunch of GD’d p*ssies.

Race does NOT = IDEOLOGY. There is absolutely NOTHING to be ashamed of in calling Obama for exactly what he is. Makes me F’ing sick the lack of balls so many “Republicans” suffer from.

F’ing PUKES.

If the man doesn’t even know what’s going on in his own church, how can we trust him to know what’s going on in his own administration? Heck, even his cabinet?

That man is 4 long years of incompetence and corruption waiting to happen.

spmat on April 23, 2008 at 11:05 AM

the State GOP wants HIllary on ticket and not obama because hillary will bring out the base like no other and lift them to victory statewide, which is partly why the two dem Gov. candidates endorsed obama. Obama brings out the black vote, which there is plenty of in NC.

the NC Gov. race is an important one to watch for the National GOP. The winner gets to draw up the district lines in 2010 when new census comes out and NC will be gaining more Congressmen. The state Dems have been able to hold power for a long time b/c of there gerrymandering, in spite of in most elections the R’s running get more votes than the D’s when grouped together.

Fine. Then he should have just said he’s not going to involve himself in the Democrat primary and left it there. Instead, he’s basically said he’s not going to criticize his opponents. Hey, that’s a great strategy for winning elections. What’s he going to talk about — his war service??

BigD on April 23, 2008 at 11:09 AM

I saw this ad mentioned last night on MSNBC. Matthew’s, and Russert were all to pieces over the prospect of this “type” of ad running. My question to my progresive friends is. What exactly are we able to discuss pertaining to Obama? Please have someone post exactly what will be “in-bounds” when it comes to this guy. What if the Osama/Obama Pastor held the same relationship with a Republican candidate? Would that bother some? No big deal? What is it? Exit question: Is Olby still balled up in the fetal position?

chief on April 23, 2008 at 11:09 AM

People in NC call it like they see it. McCain shouldn’t denounce this ad because it doesn’t have anything to do with him. The governor candidates have run TV ads non-stop attacking each other over the past couple of weeks. The most recent ads were about who was more PRO CHOICE.

The GOP hasn’t run any ads. This is the first one. It is appropriate. It says they have both endorsed Obama and that’s a bad idea. It has nothing to do with McCain so he better shut his trap. . . or he WILL LOSE NC.

McCain needs to stop apologizing for and lecturing to everyone who criticizes the other side. He can run how he wants, but for many people who will end up voting for him, it’s all-out political warfare. And no, Senator McCain, Hillary would not make a “good president” and she is not “a person of integrity”.

As near as I can tell, you can talk about:

Obama will bring change.
He offers hope.
He is charismatic. But don’t call him articulate, because that is an insult, you racist!
A lot of people donate to him and he has raised millions – but Obama supporters are against other people who raise millions from other sources for candidates. That’s wrong. This money is bad. Their millions, however, is good.
It would be awesome to have a black president, but don’t you dare say that people are voting for Obama because he’s black. Then you are a racist and Keith Olbermann will name you THE-WORST! PERSON!! IN-THE-WORRRLLDD!!!!!

(Did I leave out anything?)

wise_man on April 23, 2008 at 11:15 AM

John McCain is doing the right thing by taking the high road.

He does not need to run or endorse the ads, they will get out there anyways.

No, the high road would be to own the message or indeed really distance himself as far as he can from their creators. Using something while publicly denouncing it is as low as it gets.

freevillage on April 23, 2008 at 11:15 AM

about the pro choice thing. . . the D candidates are saying that the other D isn’t pro choice enough. They come back and say I’m more pro choice than you. It’s sickening to hear if you are pro life because they are so blatant about wanting to kill babies and commit genocide among the black community.

I applaud this GOP ad. It has nothing to do with McCain or the national race. It has to do with the poor judgment of the D nominees for governor. As I said, McCain better shut his trap because this state is VERY pro border control (D & R – McCain/Kennedy). . . and we don’t appreciate being called bigots because of it. WE GAVE YOU EDWARDS!

ThackerAgency on April 23, 2008 at 11:15 AM

relax, McCain is being smart playing it this way, he knows he needs to play nice at this point in the game to avoid offending moderates and crossovers. McCain can deny and denounce while state GOPs and 527s do the dirty work.

He’s been playing this game for awhile

profitsbeard on April 23, 2008 at 11:19 AM

McCain will allow the 527s and Republican committees to hit Obama while he claims moral highground. He looks clean, but voters happen to be reminded of Obama’s baggage.

amerpundit on April 23, 2008 at 11:19 AM

Classy. I especially liked the classical music on the second one and how they brought up Rezko; no one has been doing that lately. And, for once i was glad that McCain jumped to ‘denounce’ the ads. He can’t control what the GOP of NC does.

Big D said…”he’s basically said he’s not going to criticize his opponents.” I was with you until I heard McCain come down pretty hard on Obama because of his enmeshment with Wright.
I forget which lefty putz was interviewing him, but I was heartened and I was/am a Hunter supporter, (now I support his son who’s running for Congress).

Christine on April 23, 2008 at 11:20 AM

I’ll be voting for McCain, but he is wrong to denounce this. And like other folks have said, this is why I no longer donate to the RNC. The RNC treats Republicans nearly as bad as the DNC. Their calls and letters are condescending and trite, and they have totally been owned by the pro-illegal immigrant corporate interests and the anti-Israel Islamist supporting corporate interests.

The RNC needs to go away and not come back until they actually represent Republicans, not just the Beltway crowd

freevillage on April 23, 2008 at 11:15 AM

If this ad makes you unhappy, I canonly tell you that it is tame compared to what will be thrown out on the air and YouTube by November.

Obama is a deeply flawed candidate and with the power of video, America will be made aware of all of his flaws, repeatedly.

JayHaw Phrenzie on April 23, 2008 at 11:22 AM

The denunciation:

From the beginning of this process McCain has expressed his intent to run a respectful campaign based on the issues, and we have repeatedly called for all parties to follow his lead.”

http://blogs.abcnews.com/politicalradar/2008/04/nc-republicans.html

Pretty tame imo and allows McCain to remain above the fray. It also opens the door so if Obama attacks McCain, he can basically retaliate using ads such as these, and will look as if he was pushed into doing it.
win win imo.
The 527’s will use this type of ad in October, have no fear and McCain can continue to appear to not be associated with it.
If anyone thinks this is not being worked out now and agreed upon, I got a bridge to sell you.
I believe he will be able to beat Obama on the issues because obama is clueless.
But McCain can always fall back on these ads in late October if needed.

Indeed. That’s why we need someone in the VP spot who can be the attack dog. Mitt had no trouble sockin’ it to ’em, but he’s a Mormon and I guess that’s as bad as being a Muslim.
In any case, considering all the bad press that the two Demos camps are giving each other, most of the work will be done and the choice will be clear.
If HRC somehow gets the nomination will John re-think those assessments, (when he thought that BO would be his opponent)?

Christine on April 23, 2008 at 11:30 AM

If McCain is going to be out in public at all, he should be spending his energy and commentary on positioning himself as something and somebody who is presidential, not senatorial, and not just political.

This constant denunciation of people presumably on his own side who criticize his opponents is bewildering.

Is McCain going to criticize his opponents? Ever? If his opponents would make such great presidents, why should anyone vote for him?

Bottom line: Since becoming the presumptive Republican nominee, McCain has done nothing to take the lead in positioning himself with voters as the next president. His biography tour is child’s play. And he has had all the opportunity in the world, given the fracas going on with the Democrats.

McCain is currently touring in predominantly black areas, pointing out that raises in capital gains taxes affect the average investor.
He is also pointing out that school vouchers will help their kids to get into better schools.
While I don’t think he will win a majority of the black vote, I admire him at least trying to reach out.
A person should try to be the President to everyone and that is what he is currently offering imo.

It is 1996 all over again. They are counting on ant-Clinton fervor to drive the GOP into the presidency. How did that work out for Bob Dole. Like McCain, he gave us nothing to vote for.

Valiant on April 23, 2008 at 5:48 PM

By “denouncing” these ads, McCain is trying to take the high road, by saying in effect, “that’s not my opinion, but other people criticizing Obama”. McCain probably realizes by now that Obama would be a weaker opponent in the general election than Clinton (given the Dem primary results in crucial states like FL, OH, and PA), so he’s letting state GOP parties and Hillary do his dirty work for him. McCain probably wants Obama to win the nomination, but he wants Hillary to stick around long enough to make Obama heavily damaged goods, so he doesn’t want to sink Obama just yet and have to run against Hillary with the political wind at her back.

McCain might have been unintentionally clever by leaving the 527 loophole in the campaign-finance law. He can run a “clean” campaign, then let 527 groups hammer Obama, and then say, “well, that’s not me, that’s other people doing that”. Of course, he’ll have to brace himself when George Soros opens his wallet against McCain…

Steve Z on April 23, 2008 at 5:50 PM

Dearest Mr. McCain,

It’s perfectly legitimate to question why the 2 leading democrats running for governor of our state of NC have endorsed a Lefty loon like Obama. Keep your nose out of our business, Mr. McCain. This ad was not about you, it’s about our race for governor. Thank you. Have a nice day.

But our primary in NC is in a few weeks. We have a good shot at regaining the governor’s mansion from the democrats this year. This is a perfectly legitimate ad aimed at North Carolinians who are going to be voting in our primary. It’s really fascinating that McCain felt the need to even say anything. Nowhere is his name mentioned…nowhere.

Chakra Hammer on April 23, 2008 at 6:25 PM

This seals it for me. McCain will not EVER get my vote. I’m in North Carolina and he has done more damage to the NC GOP than any Democrat could have done. I suspect he thinks NC is just like SC and he’s got his buddy Lindsey Graham to vouch for him here.

North Carolina won’t forget the tobacco settlement that did nothing but take money out of this state and gave it to the trial lawyers. I am ashamed but I took joy out of the knowledge that he got sun cancer a year or two after that as I thought it was poetic justice from how he vilified a LEGAL product and basically stole their profits, put people out of business, and forced farmers out.

You ain’t seen a temper until you’ve seen mine. And this just threw me over the edge. You really want me to bring up the Keating 5 every day more and more detailed until the election don’t you?

The Democrats have run ads here at a clip of about 20 to 1. It will be nice to see a republican ad for a change. . . you know one that doesn’t tout someone’s pro-choice stance or anti-gun stance.

We have Democrats in this state who actually are more for border security than McCain is. One black Democrat named Mel Watt in the House I have much more respect for than McCain. McCain won’t win NC. The last time a D won was Jimmy Carter, but this state will not vote for him after this. I’m sorry but this was the last straw.

It doesn’t take a genius to CRASH AN AIRPLANE. I don’t have a 100 million dollar wife. I don’t have TWO pension plans that will pay me for the rest of my life. We are going to have to vote on new bonds in this area to BUILD MORE SCHOOLS! WHY do we have to get more money to build more schools? BECAUSE THE ILLEGALS that McCain doesn’t have to deal with but doesn’t protect us from are OVERRUNNING OUR SMALL COMMUNITIES! McCain doesn’t care.

After this statement, I’m convinced that McCain just wants to lose. He’s lost me, and I’ve defended him as long as I could. You don’t want torture? Well I don’t think it is your place to talk about it. Not in public, not on the Congressional floor. What type of sailor talks about national security issues in public? Loose lips sink ships! You may not like torture, but expect to get it from me. Let’s see that so-called temper. I bet it doesn’t hold a candle to mine because you AIN’T GOT NOTHING TO BE ANGRY ABOUT!

NOBODY in NC is excited about McCain, EVERYBODY is excited about Clinton AND Obama. I hope that conservatives make some headway in local elections. But McCain won’t help at all. I don’t care who gets the presidency. It’s not going to be McCain. I give him ZERO chance of winning NC now after this.

I’m trying to calm down, but the more I read that freaking letter of his to our GOP (which he has done no favors for in the last 20 years – and has damaged) the more angry I get. NO to McCain! This is it. . . I will NEVER vote for McCain. I don’t even want him to come to this state. All he had to do was keep his mouth shut. But NO, he’s Mr. Big shot. He had it figured out through South Carolina. . . but after that he didn’t know anything.

It’s going to be a Democrat year. McCain just gave away NC. McCain’s response to this ad was the lead story on the local news (LIBERAL LOCAL NEWS). Bye bye McCain. Stay in DC where you are with like minded elites. I look forward to your face after the Dems start dredging up the Keating 5 stuff again. What a loser.
