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.
