Obama vs. the other guy, 2008

McCain Camp Repeats Landstuhl Lies *Again*

This is really unbelievable. After getting excoriated in the Washington Post among other places for his lies on the Landstuhl story, they are going to this discredited well once more.


Yesterday, after a wave of criticism from the press, McCain’s camp seemed to abandon the oft-repeated claim that Obama had abandoned a trip to visit troops because he couldn’t bring cameras.

“It does now seem that Barack Obama snubbed the troops for reasons other than a lack of photo-op potential,” wrote deputy communications director Michael Goldfarb.

Bu that doesn’t seem to have stopped them from repeating it today.

“Last week, Senator Obama skipped a visit with wounded U.S. troops at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany because the Pentagon would not allow campaign staff or media to accompany him into the hospital,” reads a statement from a former Landstuhl surgeon, Col. Danny Jazarevic, and circulated by McCain’s camp.

This is truly unbelievable. It’s clear that the McCain camp has no moral compass whatsoever. Even after getting blasted on his stupid ‘celebrity ad’ McCain maintains that he is now proud of the ad. This calls for a more hard-hitting ad. Terms that could be used include “liar” and “bald-faced liar.” McCain has no scruples or morals whatsoever.

  1. What a jerk. And he said he was proud of the ad today and Rick Davis defended calling Obama a “celebrity” on air on MSNBC as well – also defended putting out a press release about Obama’s eating and drinking habits and “fussiness.”

    Please, someone put out a press release about Cindy McCain’s multi-million dollar spending habits. So tempting.

  2. My thought on McCain’s race baiting is that Obama should respond with something like this:

    John McCain is totally disrepectful to the genuine fears and hopes of the American people. Instead of talking about that things that matter, he’s putting up weapons of mass distraction. Well, Senator McCain, we will not bite from that apple again.

    The issues Americans face are real and this election is bigger than the trivializing and nonsensical parsing of words that John McCain has decided to offer. Not this time.
