It's a pretty good ad. And I'm no fan of Obama (or McCain).
I wonder how many millions upon millions of dollars gets wasted in back and forth silly issues ~ coming from someone who thinks he has taken the high road, such an ad simply seeks the same bs rhetoric that Obama has cried about, yet doesn't mind when it may benefit him, the only thing thats missing is Barack at the end saying " I am Barack Obama and I approve of this message ?" Oh thats right he says it at the beginning.
How does asking someone how many homes they own ~ relative to someones suitability to become President ?
Obama's a punk a$$ b*tch with this ad.
LordZ is actually right, if he's saying that Obama is a hypocrite and the houses thing is irrelevant. But I think you're saying (correct me if I'm wrong, Seth) that McCain's comment on the economy is asinine, and the thing about the houses may well prove to be effective.
Yes, everybody in the ruling elite has plenty of money. That's why they can afford to spend all their time doing that stuff. (Just imagine if you or I ran for office. Yeah, our annual salary would be higher if we won, but we probably wouldn't win, and we'd have nothing to show for all that time we spent campaigning.) But Obama's quite a hypocrite to play "man of the people." Are we supposed to think he's suffered financial hardship because he's black? He's had a really easy life, and McCain was in POW hell in Vietnam.
Well, I'm not a McCain fan, but he wouldn't be quite as bad of a president as Obama.
As for OBAMA coming across as some non elitist Obama and his wife, Michelle, reported making $4.2 million in 2007. A huge increase as because of his political aspirations he got a huge book deal in the multi millions.
The Republican National Committee responded with a Web site highlighting Obama's ties to Chicago businessman Antonin "Tony" Rezko, a friend and contributor who was convicted in June on more than a dozen felonies in a corruption scandal.
Obama and his wife bought their home in Chicago in 2005 for $1.6 million after getting advice from Rezko. The corruption case had no connection to Obama, and Obama has said it was a mistake to work with Rezko on buying the house.
McCain's campaign also released a new television ad highlighting the Obama-Rezko connection.
"Does a guy who made more than $4 million last year, just got back from vacation on a private beach in Hawaii and bought his own million-dollar mansion with the help of a convicted felon really want to get into a debate about houses?" asked McCain campaign spokesman Brian Rogers.
Again this pathetic attack as to the unsuitability of Mccain based upon him somehow living a better life than Barrack Obama is a joke and makes me again question the reasoning and decision making of this junior Senator.
Maybe its time for Mccain to take off the gloves and truly give it back to such an elitist pot cocaine smoking private hawaiin beach bum like OBAMA ?????
