2 things..

 

 

 

1) Obama is not (and has never been) a Muslim.

 

2) There is nothing wrong with being Muslim.

did you even understand what I mean? with all due respect, re-read and see if you understand what I trying to say

 

Well, to answer your question, Missouri does this because they have ethics laws that protect politicians from false advertising from rival politicians or public interest groups.

 

The Republican Party is often accused of using misleading and distorted false statements, called "smears", which is why Obama is calling for control over it. You can read about smears here

whoever thinks this is OK, needs his head examined. Take your Obama colored glasses off.

 

No goverment official should use his power to shut off the oposition, with these bully tactics. There is something called the first ammendment.

BARACK OBAMA

 

Missouri Prosecutors, Sheriffs 'Target Anyone Who Lies' About Barack Obama

 

 

 

A St. Louis television station reports ? their words ? "The Barack Obama campaign is asking Missouri law enforcement to target anyone who lies or runs a misleading TV ad during the presidential campaign."

 

Prosecutors and sheriffs from across Missouri are joining "The Barack Obama Truth Squad."

 

They mention Jennifer Joyce, St. Louis Circuit Attorney and Bob McCullough, prosecutor for St. Louis County in Missouri.

 

The reporter says, "They will be reminding voters that Barack Obama is a Christian who wants to cut taxes for anyone making less than $250,000 a year."

While the report never quite comes out and says that anyone running an ad saying those things would be subject to prosecution, that certainly is the message implied.

 

Not all things that are wrong are illegal. Saying that Barack Obama is a Muslim is wrong, but it does not warrant prosecution by the state.

 

I would cite Jonah Goldberg's Liberal Fascism, but an angry mob just took my copy to their book-burning...

 

UPDATE: AIP responds:

 

Washington, DC ? September 26, 2008 ? Barack Obama is now using local law enforcement officials to carry out his campaign of legal intimidation by assembling a group of high-ranking Missouri police officials and prosecutors ? including St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCullough and City of St. Louis Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce ? to identify and target anyone the campaign determines is producing ?misleading? political advertisements.

 

?This is an outrageous and shocking attempt by the Obama campaign to again employ Stalinist, police state tactics against those who dare to disagree with Barack Obama,? said Ed Martin, American Issues Projects president. ?I am frankly stunned to see public officials like McCullough and Joyce abusing their official prosecutorial positions to serve as attack dogs for a national political campaign. I am quite certain Missourians elected these individuals to enforce the laws and arrest criminals, not to throw people in jail for daring to practicing free speech.

 

"The Obama campaign continues to provide a chilling preview of what would happen to political freedom in an Obama administration.?

 

This new effort is only the most recent attempt by the Obama campaign to crack down on free speech. Obama?s lawyers twice demanded the Department of Justice investigate and prosecute the American Issues Project, its officers, board of directors, and donors. The campaign also threatened stations running American Issues Project?s ad in an unsuccessful attempt to compel them to pull the spot, and ran its own ad in response.

 

Notably, this ad failed to dispute a single fact the American Issues Project has put forth.

Gov. Blunt Statement on Obama Campaign's Abusive Use of Missouri Law Enforcement

 

JEFFERSON CITY - Gov. Matt Blunt today issued the following statement on news reports that have exposed plans by U.S. Senator Barack Obama to use Missouri law enforcement to threaten and intimidate his critics.

 

"St. Louis County Circuit Attorney Bob McCulloch, St. Louis City Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce, Jefferson County Sheriff Glenn Boyer, and Obama and the leader of his Missouri campaign Senator Claire McCaskill have attached the stench of police state tactics to the Obama-Biden campaign.

 

"What Senator Obama and his helpers are doing is scandalous beyond words, the party that claims to be the party of Thomas Jefferson is abusing the justice system and offices of public trust to silence political criticism with threats of prosecution and criminal punishment.

 

"This abuse of the law for intimidation insults the most sacred principles and ideals of Jefferson. I can think of nothing more offensive to Jefferson's thinking than using the power of the state to deprive Americans of their civil rights. The only conceivable purpose of Messrs. McCulloch, Obama and the others is to frighten people away from expressing themselves, to chill free and open debate, to suppress support and donations to conservative organizations targeted by this anti-civil rights, to strangle criticism of Mr. Obama, to suppress ads about his support of higher taxes, and to choke out criticism on television, radio, the Internet, blogs, e-mail and daily conversation about the election.

 

"Barack Obama needs to grow up. Leftist blogs and others in the press constantly say false things about me and my family. Usually, we ignore false and scurrilous accusations because the purveyors have no credibility. When necessary, we refute them. Enlisting Missouri law enforcement to intimidate people and kill free debate is reminiscent of the Sedition Acts - not a free society."

Excuse me, but would you like to look at that again and tell me if there is anything that I said that could be considered an opinion? I'm only stating facts here...
