Local GOP's Obama Bracketing

More

As Barack Obama visits Michigan today, the Kent County GOP is releasing this "ad" (a video, until I see details of the ad buy) that paints him as a white-flag-waiving elitist.



As an American flag slowly dissolves into a white flag, the narrator intones that "Barack Obama believes that those of us from small towns in the midwest "get bitter and cling to guns and religion..." "He will compromise America's strength, mission and integrity."
