It's about time he started fighting back. If you allow the Republicans to control the arguements and are constantly on the defense, you'll lose. Every. Single. Time.
Just yesterday, John McCain was asked, "How many houses do you own?" (Newsweek is reporting he might own up to a dozen properties, and it's been catching a lot of buzz on the campaign trail.)
So John McCain, Mr. "Ready On Day One" answered, "I'm not sure...you'll have to check with my staff."
When the media checked with the staff, they stated "four...we think." But now, it's up to seven.
And Obama's capaign sensed blood in the water and are hitting McCain HARD on this. (As well they should! All McCain has done during this campaign has tried to paint Obama as "out of touch" and "an empty suit who you can't trust.")
That ad is so fucking incredible. It's personal, but not distorting a single fact. It's painting John McCain as "out of touch" without comparing him to Britney Spears and Paris Hilton.
You started this, McCain. Obama's going to end it.
Look at this shit...this isn't an "official" McCain ad, it's from a 527 group called "American Issues Project" but you know behind the scenes they're high-fiving each other, thinking this is going to be the kind of smear that sticks.
It's vile, disgusting, and is right out of Karl Rove's playbook:
Seriously. If they're this desperate NOW...what kind of shit are they going to be making up in October?!
"DO YOU REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEALLY KNOW OBAMA?! HE'S BLACK, YOU KNOW!!! THERE'S BLACK PEOPLE IN PRISON RIGHT NOW FOR KILLING COPS!!! MAYBE OBAMA KNEW THEM TOO?! I MEAN, THEY ALL LOOK ALIKE, RIGHT?!!!"
