McCain strikes with another new ad

McCain’s rapid response team struck the iron while it was hot last night by putting out an ad almost immediately attacking Obama. And there’s already a second one.

Last night, Obama tried to defend the fact that he voted to cut funding for our troops, and McCain slams him on it. He even uses Obama’s own running mate against him, something he started doing when Biden was picked, and should be doing more often still.

The unfortunate thing about the debate last night is that Obama was able to lie over and over again about his positions without anyone to challenge him on it. The media certainly won’t call him on it. And so, McCain’s doing the right thing here. This ad will be running nationally. He needs to keep making these ads pointing out the contradictions from Obama’s policies and his answers last night, because that’s the only way that anyone will hear about it.

Obama tried to play it last night as though his vote was just because he wanted to bring the troops home. It’s a complete lie. His own running mate acknowledged that. Obama voted against funding for the troops because it was what he saw as a smart political move. Nothing more. And McCain has hit a home run in pointing this out.
