NC Citizen's Ads: Almost An Update

North Carolina defense contractor Tim D'Annunzio is doing what almost no other citizen does, or can afford to do. He's producing and airing his own political ads, as we reported earlier this week. They're all anti-Obama.

He has four ads on his Web site, and one of them is on TV. We wondered whether the others might turn up on-air, and what his plan is.

Political groups usually aren't shy about publicizing their strategies, but D'Annunzio is. He declined to answer our questions. "I believe Obama is truly a socialist," he wrote via e-mail. "I believe he will destroy this country." As for our humble blog, "You write from a pro Obama, pro socialist, pro liberal perspective." So, no answers.
