Obama “swiftboating” has begun

leave a comment »

The 501 3(c) political action committee, Vets for Freedom, has begun an active “swiftboating” campaign against Obama on cable TV. The latest TV ad is their fourth.

The campaign is principally financed by the same multi-millionaires who swiftboated John Kerry in the 2004 election. One of the major contributors is casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, the third richest man in America. A description of the organization and its funding is listed here.

According to the documentation, this organization is a very right wing, neo con political PAC. It has the full support and help of William Kristol, the neo con, of National Review.
