I hate when that happens.
Now if we bet are we only getting called by better? Do we check back here an see if he fires the turn or bet and try to get all of his pocket pairs to fold??
This is one of those situations where what you do is highly villain dependent. Against some vills, you can lead out. If the turn bricks, then you can bet bigger than his resolve to call, even if he does have a weak ace, and has demonstrated he can lay one down and/or is the type who runs nutscared, and might figure you for a deuce.
However, be aware: there are some fish out there who never saw an ace they didn't like, and will never turn one loose. If they're out kicked, they figure it's bad luck, not bad play. You definitely don't want to be multibarrelling into such a player.
If some nitty player who hasn't done a thing in two hours suddenly wakes up, look out! He probably hit three deuces.
My own inclination would be to lead into that flop if the vill "checks to the raiser", and see what he does. Here, you have to be prepared to lay those cowboys down if you have a reason to believe they're no good.
