Obama vs. the other guy, 2008

Obama Spokesman Bill Burton Responds To McCain Ad

“Senator McCain wants Americans to forget that during the Republican primary, he said that Americans were better off than we were eight years ago, and that he thinks we’ve made ‘great progress economically.’ He wants us to forget that he’s fully embraced the Bush policies he once opposed, and bragged about supporting those policies ‘more than 90 percent of time.’ The truth is, being a maverick isn’t practicing the same kind of politics we have seen from Washington for decades, it isn’t having a campaign run by Washington lobbyists, and it’s certainly not promoting the same policies that have led America down the wrong path these past eight years.”

Now all we need is an ad to carry on the words from this press release, with video clips of McCain saying that “Americans are now better off than we were eight years ago, and that we’ve made great progress economically” and his quote about “not knowing much about the economy.” Then a video clip of McCain from Meet The Press saying he’s supported Bush 95% of the time.

Then the closing line is…”That’s double talk we can’t afford to have.”
