Ad Watch: Obama and the Second Amendment
Item by Chris Graham
Former Washington Redskin and current American Hunters and Shooters Association president Ray Schoenke is the featured voice in a new 60-second radio spot highlighting Barack Obama’s commitment to protecting the constitutional rights of law-abiding gun owners, hunters and sportsmen and his commitment to adding jobs to the U.S. economy.
“It’s important to me that our next President protects our Second Amendment rights to own guns and defend ourselves,” Schoenke says in the ad. “Barack Obama and John McCain will both make sure we can keep our guns. But what about keeping our jobs? Barack’s got a real plan that invests in creating jobs here at home and cuts taxes a thousand bucks for working families.”
Schoenke also uses his football past to bring attention to the approach of the McCain-Palin campaign to distract voters from the real issues of the ’08 race. “I saw a lot of cheap shots in my day. But McCain’s false attacks on Obama are just a fake to hide the ball. His plan sells out American workers,” Schoenke says in the ad. “McCain will keep giving tax breaks to companies that ship our jobs overseas. And he’ll look the other way while China breaks our trade deals…Look, when the coach loses eight years in a row, you don’t bring him back for a ninth season!”
