Obama To Preempt McCain Assault

Yeah, yeah, McCain and Palin are about to launch an attack on Barack Obama’s character (Tony Rezko, William Ayers… old news, really; sign of a desperate GOP smear). 

Obama’s camp is hitting back today. From the new anti-McCain ad:

“Three quarters of a million jobs lost this year. Our financial system in turmoil. And John McCain? Erratic in a crisis. Out of touch on the economy. No wonder his campaign wants to change the subject.

“Turn the page on the financial crisis by launching dishonorable, dishonest assaults against Barack Obama. Struggling families can’t turn the page on this economy, and we can’t afford another president who is this out of touch.”

Then Obama says: “I’m Barack Obama and I approved this message.”

Just stay calm and presidential, that’s my advice to Obama. I suspect the McCain smear attack will boomerang on the erratic, angry candidate, as well it should. If McCain seriously wants to get into integrity issues, he had better hold on tight. His career is a series of apologies for one demonstration of his lack of integrity after another (Keating 5, anyone?), His present campaign strategy is to lie even after being debunked, to ignore questions he doesn’t like, and to hold in his growing rage (which anyone can see). McCain is out of touch and dangerous for America — lord knows I don’t want to be around once he hits his limit and blows.

  1. I thought it was so funny in the Friday Night Debate how angry McCain kept getting. You could see his tempiture rising as he bubbled deep inside. Everytime Obama called him JOHN it was like Obama had just slapped the crap out of him. I loved it and I can not wait until this Tuesday to see the second round. It is almost as much fun as Fight Night on T.V.!

    Why don’t Obama defend being friends with known terrorist all the way back to Jane Fonda and the Black Planthers groups and being in the million man march? Cause he can not! 🙂

  3. Obama is the same age as me. He was a little kid back in the days of Hanoi Jane and the Panthers and the Weathermen. He can’t be judged for knowing people with colorful pasts. Or do you want to talk about Charles Keating and all the connections he has to the GOP powerbrokers who craft his campaign from a secret bunker, people who make fiery left-wing radicals look like infants?

    And seriously, you want to condemn a guy and smear him with the guilt-by-association brush for knowing people who currently have some questionable issues in their lives? You might as well disqualify the entire state of Illinois, not to mention a number of others, from serving in public office. And need I refer to shady Republican connections again?
