This new ad by Vets For Freedom is titled “Finish the Job.” It is VFF’s first national ad; as I understand it, it will air on cable TV networks nationally, and on broadcast TV in Virginia, Ohio, Michigan and Colorado:
The Vets, of course, have never wavered on Iraq. That distinguishes them from Barack Obama, who holds up a finger in the wind before he says anything about the issue. This morning on MSNBC, Obama’s spokesman, Robert Gibbs, was asked about the success of the surge. He said: “We added 30,000 brave American troops, and violence is down, as everyone suspected it would be.” Everyone, perhaps, except Barack Obama, who specifically denied that the surge would have its intended effect: “I am not persuaded that 20,000 additional troops in Iraq is going to solve the sectarian violence there. In fact, I think it will do the reverse.”
