Obama vs. the other guy, 2008

Obama’s New Spanish Ad SCORCHES McCain!!!

Ben Smith at reports on the new Obama ad tailored for Hispanic-Americans. My first impression of the Obama ad was, “WOW!” And the script also plays very well to the Hispanic-American audiences.

“They want us to forget the insults we’ve put up with, the intolerance,” says the narrator, in Spanish, over a picture of Rush Limbaugh and quotes of him saying, “Mexicans are stupid and unqualified” and “Shut your mouth or get out.”

“John McCain and his Republican friends have two faces. One that says lies just to get our vote and another, even worse, that continues the failed policies of George Bush that put special interests ahead of working families,” according to the Post’s translation.

And the companion radio ad the Obama campaign is releasing also follow along the same lines, but with this additional line:

“Don’t forget that John McCain abandoned us rather than confront the leaders of the Republican Party.”

Ouch. I think I just heard that sizzle on that steak. I’m glad it’s bloody rare 🙂

  1. I’m not too comfortable with these ads. They leave him open to using race/ethnicity as a wedge.

    I’d rather he remove these. I think you can be tough without going this bad.

  3. Suzie – the Republican party was the one using race as a wedge, he’s only fighting back against it.

  4. The McShame campaign was the 1st to use race as a wedge, that’s right. When McShame said Obama is not patriotic enough… why ? cause he’s a black guy running for Prez ?
    Obama is just responding, by telling the truth, he’s not lying Limbaugh did say that, that’s not a lie, so Obama is right, he has fight back hard so that everyone know that McShame is just another insider, surround by dangerous lobbyists who will destroy this country if he had his way out.

    So that’s a good, tough and truthful ad.

    Good job, more of this kind of ads (tough but telling the truth) is welcome !

  6. Limbaugh did say it, but in context to a braoder thought. As to Nafta that the main jobs going south were done by uneducated and “stupid” people (I would have chosen the words better, but Limbaugh said it to make a point) and as to the last thing Limbaugh said was in reference to the Mexican Government’s attitude on Immigrants to their country, where they will not dobilingual schools, election ballots, you can not demontrate in public, you can own land, but have no rights as to the land and it can not be water front land, no welfare or social programs or free health care is afforded to immigrants coming into Mexico. Limbaugh says enough you can get mad and use against in in clear and full context to where you don’t need to lie and take his words out of context.

  7. but tell me how telling someone that he is not patriotic enough is being racist? the one playing the race card all the time is Obama. you say he sucks, or he is wrong, you are labeled a racist, just because Obama is black and you don’t like his views? i would love to see obama away from his telepromptors to hear what he really thinks and believes, oh wait he has done it, and evertime he goes back and changes what he said amid all the um’s, ah’s, I…I…I’s and stutters. he touts hs community organizing as a qualification on his resume, yet in one of his books he said he failed as a CO, and went back to where her worked years later and it was worst than when he started there. Obama promised a clean campaign and this is what we get, lies and text out of context. look at his staffers who took over $100million from fannie mae/freddie mac, and not are his finacial advisers, in 1 year in my church, i knew where my pastor stood, and what he really believed, but after 20 years in that church, Obama didn’t know Wright hated white people and the country? BS

  8. dios mio…

    I can not believe that McCain… the guy that fought imigration reform and I saw at C-span with all my friends screaming at everybody trying to get us a work visa or some kind of agreement, is being portrayed as an enemy of the latin people..

    Talk about LYING!!!!!!!!! OBAMA IS A LIAR!!!

    I was gonna vote for him, but now I WON”T!
    He is disrespecting us, and promoting anger, not unity.
    We don’t need more lies…

    If he was honest, he would come up and say… amigos, my democratic friends let us down on the immigration bill.

    As mccain screamed at the house, nobody wanted to go forth with his bill…

  9. Disgruntled and music2harvest : why are you here, this is a OBAMA supporter website. Are you here just to spill your conservative right wingnut talking points.

    I find it amazing how you repubs and conservative can throw the bulshit, but cannot take it. Were you just a disgusted when McCain put out ad implying that Obama wants to teach sex education to kindergarters, when it was actually a bill to protect children against child molesters. Where you just as sickened when McCain fasely linked Obama to Resko and Ayers. Probably not, because you are hypocrites.

    McCain/Plain has a monopoly on cheating and lying, it is in their blood, cannot help themselves.

    Remember it was McCain who promised to have a clean campaign, he started it, and now Obama will finish it. Se ya

  10. You know I saw these ads coming when Obama hired Charles Manson as an advisor to his canpaign. How do you say “helterskelter” in spanish? These ads are disgusting and any intellectually honest person would admit it.
