Obama Risks Driver’s Licenses for Illegal Aliens

Via Ben Smith, here's the new ad from the National Republican Trust:

Here's the background:

The driver’s license issue emerged in September 2007, when then-Gov. Eliot Spitzer ordered New York officials to grant driver’s licenses to illegals. During the Oct. 30, 2007, Democratic primary debate at Drexel University, Sen. Hillary Clinton fumbled a question from the late Tim Russert over whether she supported Spitzer’s plan. As for Obama, he has supported driver’s licenses for illegals since his days in the Illinois Senate, and continues to maintain that training illegals to drive, and insuring them, enhances public safety.
No doubt Democrats will renounce this as pure fear-mongering (especially members of the radical left, who are either domestic terrorists themselves, terrorist cheerleaders, or terrorist enablers).

Yet, whether there is a direct relationship between support for illegrant immigrant driver's licenses and the boarding of flights to commit mass destruction (terrorists could board U.S. flights with foreign passports), Barack Obama's position puts him on
the opposite side of public opinion on the issue.

Barack Obama is genuinely too radical and too risky.
