SHARE Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Obama ads surface in Florida, Pennsylvania

JACKSONVILLE, FL.–While John McCain told his campaign not to make an issue of Barack Obama’s association with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, he could not control GOP allies. Some GOP analysts have said McCain lost an opportunity to hit Obama on a significant vunerability by ruling out using Wright. I saw a spot slamming Obama’s relationship with Wright Monday morning on cable here in Florida funded by the National Republica Trust political action committee titled “He never complained once.” A Wright ad, bankrolled by another group, is running in Pennsylvania.

Obama and Wright: He Never Complained Once

30 Second Ad

For 20 years Barack Obama followed a preacher of hate and said nothing is Wright raged against our country.

[Clip of Rev. Wright:] “Not God Bless America, God Damn America . . . US of KKKA!”

[Quote of Obama appears on screen:] “I don’t think my church is particularly controversial.”

He built his power base in Wright’s church.

Wright was his mentor, adviser and close friend.

For 20 years Obama never complained until he ran for President.

Barack Obama. Too radical. Too risky.
