Americans United for Change

"Americans United" has launched a TV ad campaign designed to undermine the Bush administration. "Father Knows Best" and "Wiretaps" are slick 30-second spots that use Bush's own words against him.

The ad entitled "Wiretaps" uses news accounts and video clips to demonstrate how President Bush has mislead the American people about the NSA and its programs to spy on Americans without warrants and to secretly collect the phone records of nearly every Americans citizen.

"Father Knows Best" uses news account and television clips of President Bush and his father which highlights how our current President mislead America by selectively leaking classified intelligence to bolster the Administration's case for the war in Iraq and to punish Administration critics of the war.
