New ad: Black Republican PAC hammers Obama on terrorism, abortion

Tough stuff, noteworthy less for who produced it (the only racial allusion is the reference to Obama “making history”) than for the gloves-off treatment of his highly nuanced position on born-alive abortions. Which makes sense: Their constituency is dwindling, so they might as well pitch this at a general swing state audience. If you’re looking for a retort in the vein of identity politics, the National Black Republican Association has got you covered. It’ll be fun watching the nutroots try to suppress their more Emil Jones-ish tendencies in offering a reply. Exit question: Conspicuous omission of Margaret Sanger and her eugenics background — a strategic show of restraint or an opportunity lost?
