Obama vs. the other guy, 2008

Obama Camp: McCain’s Economy Comments an “Enormous” Mistake

McCain made a huge blunder this morning, and don’t think that the Obama team didn’t notice:

The Obama campaign will seize on comments John McCain made at an event in Florida this morning to portray the Republican ticket as fundamentally out of touch with American voters.

McCain, speaking before a town hall meeting, said that “the fundamentals of our economy are strong” before adding the caution that “these are very, very difficult times and I promise you we will never put America in this position again.”

An Obama aide calls the first part of McCain’s sentence “an enormous mistake,” and said that the campaign will seek to amplify the comment through surrogates, principles and maybe even television ads.

This should be part of a multi-pronged attack on McCain.

1) Attack him personally for his outrageous lies, which the below ad does quite well:

2) Go after him on his economic ignorance. Comments from McCain like the above should be easy pickings. Attack him relentlessly, and it’s heartening to see that they plan to do just that.
