Campaign to Defend America launches anti-John McCain ad (George Soros, MoveOn, CAP, SEIU, Fund for America)

A group called "Campaign to Defend America" ("CDA") has released an anti-John McCain ad that you can see here: . They're supposedly going to be spending in the low seven figures running it on TV. It points out various ways that McCain is "McSame as Bush". Cute. And, it also ends with a rather questionable photo of McCain hugging Bush.

When I first heard about this, one name flashed like a neon sign everywhere I looked. And, it turns out I was right.

From this we learn that the CDA got $1 million from the Fund for America ("FFA"), which in turn was funded by $2.5 million from George Soros, with an equal amount coming from the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). The board of FFA includes: "Rob McKay, the chairman of the Democracy Alliance; Anna Burger of Change to Win; and John Podesta, of the Center for American Progress". The FFA also gave $1 million to "America Votes, a Soros-backed group".

Previously, the CDA ran; the site says it was paid for by them at the bottom of each page. On their about page it says:

Americans Against Escalation in Iraq is a group of independent entities, including the Service Employees International Union, Political Action,, Center for American Progress Action Fund, USAction, Win Without War, Campaign for America's Future, the United States Student Association, Working Assets, Americans United for Change, Campus Progress Action and Nation Security Network, that have banded together as a coalition to launch a multi-faceted, multi million dollar effort in fifteen target states to education the American public about the true costs of the war in Iraq, mobilize opposition against President Bush's Iraq policy, as well as apply on-going pressure on members of Congress to oppose this failed policy.

According to this, the CDA is "associated with the liberal advocacy group".

From last month (link):

Eddie Vale is joining the Campaign to Defend America as its Press Secretary. Vale was previously the New Hampshire Press Secretary for John Edwards’ presidential campaign and also worked as Communications Director for Ned Lamont’s Senate campaign in New Hampshire.

A nifty thing to have would be an online "George Soros Front Group Name Generator" so he can spend more time spending his money.


"Americans Against Escalation in Iraq" ? Where was such a group when it could have helped genuine anti-war candidates like Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich? It is true that McCain sounds insane in a way that neither Clinton or Obama do-but if you investigate closely you'll find them pandering to the AIPAC warmongers and others of that ilk just as much as McCain. (...) _"If there is an Arab-American family being rounded up without benefit of an attorney, it threatens my civil liberties. It is that fundamental belief, I am my brother's keeper, I am my sister's keeper, it is that fundamental belief that makes this country work." - Senator Barack Obama_ Lies, of course, are ubiquitous in political campaigns, but shouldn't someone ask Obama what he was referring to? I doubt that he is really speaking of mistreatment of "Americans"(i.e. US citizens), but, rather, aliens, and probably (for the most part) aliens without legal status.

Bush just endorsed McCain. They are, essentially, two peas in a pod.

Lot more behind this story McCain want's the internet to come to a end for you and old foreign pig Soros also want a total end of the net inside the Former USA, both want the same thing your freedom to know.

McCain, hoisted, strung up and hung by his own "Campaign Finance" petard, priceless. SEIU-that would be the illegal immigrant union-no loyalty for amnesty at all, they stab him in the back-how shocking! I believe the Center for American progress also financed his campaign finance law too. (another stab in the back). How Ironic heh

its fun to watch Smitty and nothing the rats do is Ironic its all a setup to dismantle us as a people and a nation.

And NBC is helping out with its usual anti-Republican drama. For instance:
