Anti-Obama videos posted on websites are previewing what could be avenues of attack from Republican strategists intending to exploit voters’ fear of the unknown.
The first is the launch of a new website, CanWeAsk.com, and a video from the Republican National Committee.
A voice-over in the video asks pointed rhetorical questions on issues that Obama has taken heat for over the past few months. Among other things, they concern his “voting present” record in the Illinois legislature; his controversial comment at a San Francisco fund-raising event about down-and-out people clinging to their guns and religion; and his relatively brief experience, having served only three years in the U.S. Senate.
At the end of the video, RNC Chairman Robert M. Duncan asserts that America needs a strong leader and that Obama “doesn’t meet the requirements.”
That is pretty tame stuff compared with a video from some Lorne Baxter, who produced a 13-minute exposé of Obama that reveals that the Democrat has a foreign sounding name and that his father was black, while his mother white.
Meanwhile, hoax e-mails paint Democratic presidential front-runner Barack Obama as unpatriotic and as a clandestine Muslim are still having an impact on voters’ perception of the Illinois senator.
Some note how absurd that perception of Obama really is but two Indiana voters were quoted in national publications expressing fears, based on the perception that Obama is really an anti-American Muslim.
“How can Barack Obama be a radical Christian, a Muslim, and a Marxist at the same time?” asked commentator Adam Blust.
