"The Real Barack Obama"
60-sec. TV ad run in Erie and Pittsburgh, PA in early Oct. 2008.


[Music very low] Male Announcer: In April, Barack Obama insulted small-town Americans, saying they're bitter and cling to their guns and religion.  It wasn't the first time Sen. Obama insulted Americans of faith. 

In 2006 Obama mocked and ridiculed the Books of Leviticus, Deuteronomy, even laughing at the Sermon on the Mount, taking those passages painfully out of context.

Obama (clips): Should we go with Leviticus, which suggests slavery's okay...

...or we could go with Deuteronomy, which suggests stoning your child...

...or should we just stick to the Sermon on the Mount, a passage that is so radical that it's doubtful that our own Defense Department would survive its application. [aud. rxn]

Male Announcer: Then, Sen. Obama had this to say.

Obama (clip): ...folks haven't been reading the Bible.

Male Announcer: Condescendingly implying that Americans don't know what's in there.  The real question is Senator do you know what's in there?

Notes: is a 527 group created by Stephen Marks.  The Obama campaign termed the ad "a web video launched by a political professional and career smear peddler that turns out to be a cynical and manipulative attack on Barack Obama's reading of the Bible."  Marks responded in a press release, but one cannot tell what Obama was saying from the series of short clips strung together in the ad/video.
