"Who is Barack Obama?" asks the narrator in Sen. John McCain’s latest attack ad.
A TV within the ad then shows a local Missouri TV report, that the reporter has since backed away from (more on that HERE), in which the anchor intones: "Obama’s presidential campaign is asking Missouri law enforcement to target anyone who lies or runs a misleading television ad."
"How hypocritical," says the narrator. "Obama’s Social Security attack was called ‘a falsehood.’ His health care attack … ‘misleading.’ Obama’s stem cell attack … ‘not true.’ Barack Obama. He promised better. He lied."
The criticisms of the Obama ads are all on target, taken from the links above, the last one of which is this blog.
Is name-calling effective?
