Move America Forward is using President Obama’s nomination of former Republican senator Chuck Hagel to forge hate and, its real aim, to raise money. A conservative San Francisco radio talk-show host and a former California assemblyman created the outfit in 2004.
“There is already substantial opposition to his nomination and he can be stopped, but we have to act quickly if we are going to be successful,” the group told Battleland in an email that stunk up our inbox overnight. “We urgently need to raise $50,000 to produce and begin to air our first ad in opposition to President Obama’s insulting nomination of Sen. Hagel.”
It’s strange how rancid our politics have become. It’s shrill, vile and not befitting this country. Groups like Move America Backward accelerate the process.
