Obama Advertising

Rich Bott

Friends, this is Rich Bott. We’ve learned that the Barack Obama campaign has purchased advertising on Christian radio stations across the country, including some Bott Radio Network stations. We want you to know that the government requires radio stations to accept political advertising from all candidates for federal office. However, we can tell you the rest of the story. In his advertising now running on Christian radio, Barack Obama claims to represent family values, but that claim simply is not true.

At the Saddleback Forum, Senator Barack Obama told Pastor Rick Warren that to determine when a baby should get human rights is above his pay grade. He also promised Planned Parenthood that, if elected president, his first priority is to pass the Freedom of Choice Act which would overturn all statewide limitations on abortion. He voted four times against the Illinois Born Alive Infant Protection Act. Barack Obama is ranked #1 as the most liberal member of the Senate, even more liberal than Bernie Sanders from Vermont, the Senate’s only self-proclaimed socialist. His running mate, Joe Biden, is ranked #3. Both Obama and Biden support so-called gay rights and oppose the California Marriage Amendment that would protect the institution of marriage as between a man and a woman. Obama’s position on family values is exactly wrong.

His opponent, John McCain, has a solid pro-life voting record and promises pro-life policies in his administration. Additionally, McCain and Palin support traditional marriage and endorse the California Marriage Amendment. That’s why pro-family leaders across the nation are opposing Obama and Biden and planning to vote for the McCain Palin ticket on November 4. The government requires us to air Obama’s paid political commercials, but we are not required to keep his money. We’ve decided to spread his wealth around by donating the proceeds from his advertising to those pro-life organizations and crisis pregnancy centers which his policies would oppose. We thought you’d like to know.
