Floyd Brown once bragged he was part of the "the heart and soul of the right-wing conspiracy." His campaign portfolio -- including the infamously racist Willie Horton ad -- was described by President George H.W. Bush as "filthy."
In an article titled "Ready to Attack Obama, if Some Money Arrives," Floyd Brown is described as "a gregarious evangelical churchgoer" that "merely enjoyed the interchange of ideas and that there was nothing personal about his attacks."
Sadly, he is back with ads, lies, and smears that fall far below any reasonable or moral standard of what the "interchange of ideas" should be about. They also contradict the teachings and values of Judeo-Christian churches across the country.
Whether Floyd Brown realizes it or not, these attacks are indeed personal. And they are not focused on the critical issues that should define this campaign.
You can help push back against false, negative attacks and the hypocritical tactics of people like Floyd Brown by reaching out to the evangelical community.
Take a few minutes to write a positive and respectful note asking members of the evangelical community to discourage the use of personal attacks and prejudice to divide Americans.
Share your personal story or faith experience and then express the willingness and enthusiasm of members of this movement to engage in a debate that sticks to the issues.
This is a respectful and serious appeal to bring the political discourse in this country to a higher level, and your comments should be in that same spirit. No matter what your personal religious and moral beliefs are, we can all agree that the things that unite us all are stronger than the things that divide us.
We'll package all of your comments and your call to lift up our politics and deliver them to leaders who wish, like you do, to elevate the debate rather than tear down Americans like Barack Obama who are offering their ideas and beliefs in good faith.
It will be your voice, and the voices of those in your community, that will bring about the fundamental change to our politics that we've all been waiting for.
