McCain Ads Attack Obama

Subject: McCain Ads Attack Obama

Unfortunately, the nature of politics boils down to attacking one's opponent.

The McCain campaign has decided that it cannot defeat Obama based on his non-substantive flip-flopping on the issues. Why not attack his strong suit--his political celebrity? From the perspective of this observer, it appears that this is a bold and effective move. Obama's bump in the polls due to his tour overseas has been eaten away as a result of the success of McCain's attack ads. The Obama campaign of course has cried foul play. However, these ads are serving their purpose well. The Obama campaign will find it necessary to put the gloves on and forsake the high road if they are to prevail in the war of campaign ads.

The latest ad from John McCain implies Barack Obama is a megacelebrity -- like Britney Spears.

A new campaign ad from Sen. John McCain -- which flashes shots of the two aforementioned megacelebrities -- calls Obama a megacelebrity, too, and questions his leadership ability.

"He's the biggest celebrity in the world. But is he ready to lead? With gas prices soaring, Barack Obama says no to offshore drilling and says he'll raise taxes on electricity. Higher taxes, more foreign oil -- that's the real Obama," the ad's narrator says while crowds screaming, "Obama!" are shown.
