Unlike McCain’s suggestion that Obama is himself responsible for rising gas prices, there’s nothing untrue about what Obama’s campaign is saying in this ad. However, by saying that McCain is in the pocket of Big Oil like Bush, he takes what could have been a solid campaign ad and turns it into a negative hit.
Obviously this ad has a lot more substance than those the McCain campaign has been slinging as of late, but is it only a matter of time before we see the McCain celeb ad or something equivalent?
In any event, it’s clear to me that McCain has started to change the tone in this campaign and Obama isn’t afraid to go right there with him.
