Strategy ’08

Obama vs. the other guy, 2008

Ever Get The Feeling Republican Senators Don’t Really Like McCain?

Today, Obama launched a new ad regarding the danger of loose nukes, and his history in terms of reaching out to Republican Senator Dick Lugar of Indiana to work on this issue:

A good soldier Republican would protest inclusion in a Democrat’s ad and shout “innacurate!”  But Senator Lugar?

Republican Sen. Dick Lugar (IN) today said an Obama campaign ad which features him is “accurate.”

“He did” reach out, Lugar said. He explained that in 2005, Obama asked if he could join Lugar on a trip to Russia and other countries to visit sites under the Nunn-Lugar program.

“After that, we had legislation that we cosponsored together which passed” dealing with dangerous missiles. “So I am pleased we had that opportunity to work together,” Lugar said. “I’m pleased we had the association Sen. Obama describes.”

Thanks a lot Dick.  I’m awaiting McCain’s next statement: “Dick Lugar is an excellent candidate for Ambassador to Uzbekistan, if the people of Tashkent will have him.  Nyuck, Nyuck.”

  1. I somehow see the McCain team doing face-palms over this one.
