Ok people, there's been a lot of lamenting about Obama not hitting hard enough, not being active rather than reactive, starting a new narrative about Mccain, etc. Well, the time is nigh, and instead of Obama, this is actually in our hands. The good people at DFA got Phillip Butler into an ad, and they're asking for contributions to get it on the air. Don't know who Phillip Butler is?

In 1965 he was shot down over North Vietnam where he spent eight years as a prisoner of war. He is a highly decorated combat veteran who was awarded two Silver Stars, two Legion of Merits, two Bronze Stars and two Purple Heart medals.

Was a prisoner with John Mccain. Knows him well. War hero. He also, by the way, wrote a damning indictment of Mccain, in that radical far left wing blog,

Many of us read this early on, and several bloggers here and elsewhere said "Man, someone get him into an ad, pronto!" Well, someone did. And we can put this searing stuff everywhere if we want to.

I'm tired of whining and feeling politics is unfair and why did they say that naughty thing about Obama and why doesn't he fight fire with fire. Let's do it for him. This is the kind of thing that could turn this election. It's not some corrupt smear merchant like Jerome Corsi. A hero, in Hanoi Hilton for 3 years longer than Mccain.

I'm mad. You?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
