Frame Job

Obama-Wright-ad.jpg

The sleaziest move in the Obama-Wright ad running nationally now is to show Obama as more married to Jeremiah Wright than he was to his own wife on his wedding day.

…When you watch the ad, notice how the noxious text actually cancels Obama out of his own wedding picture. With the marriage photo set back and off to the side, watch how the camera starts to focus on Michelle, then returns to finish on the framed men.
