Let's hope the truth comes out when we deal with McCain.

I read this in a Newsweek article by David Kiley:
What the McCain campaign doesn't want people to know, according to one GOP strategist I spoke with over the weekend, is that they had an ad script ready to go if Obama had visited the wounded troops saying that Obama was...wait for it...using wounded troops as campaign props. So, no matter which way Obama turned, McCain had an Obama bashing ad ready to launch. I guess that's political hardball. But another word for it is the one word that most politicians are loathe to use about their opponents--a lie.
This is something McCain denied to Andrea Mitchell yesterday on MSNBC, but what's a denial added to the lies coming from his campaign already? Not much, I'm afraid.
The desperation of McCain is too obvious for words, yet there are many who seem to be falling for the Karl Rove-ian techniques.
And now he keeps race in the issue by accusing Obama of playing "the race card" simply because the Democrat admits to being different from previous candidates (ie: funny name, doesn't look like the presidents on the currency, etc.). The fact that what he says is true... and that he is really using it as humor to get us away from personal distractions so that issues such as the economy, the military mix-up, the profit gobbling oil companies and eight years of Republican debt buildup... has no serious meaning compared to the one McCain implies.
McCain started out saying he wa committed to a "Civil Campaign". Instead, he is aiming for a Civil War.
