McCain v. Obama II: ‘War Against Wrong’ and ‘Battle to Save America’

Jan 7, 2010 12:50pm

ABC News’ Rick Klein reports: Sen. John McCain has launched the first two radio ads of his Senate reelection campaign — and is taking the fight directly and harshly to an old foe. In one of the ads, McCain, R-Ariz., describes his efforts to curb government spending under President Obama as a “war against wrong.” In the other ad, he says, “I stand in his way every day.” Says McCain in the first ad: “My lot in life has been to wage war against wrong, like today’s massive spending at the worst possible time. Send me back to the Senate — we’ll win that fight for Arizona.” In the other ad, a voice-over says: “He’s lived through a battle or two — vanquished many a foe. But perhaps no battle in our lifetime is more vital than the one John McCain fights now: A battle to save America — save our jobs. John McCain leads the charge to slash government spending, bloated bureaucracies, and ridiculously unaffordable ideas like government-run health care.” Then McCain’s voice comes on: “President Obama is leading an extreme left-wing crusade to bankrupt America. I stand in his way every day. If I get a bruise or two knocking some heads in Washington — so be it. I’ll keep fighting for jobs and economic growth in Arizona as long as I’m in the Senate.” The ad closes with the voice-over: “John McCain is Arizona’s last line of defense. Character matters.”
