The scoop from Washington

McCain new ad stresses bio, titled "Love," takes swipe at Obama's "hope."


From new McCain ad: John McCain doesn't always tell us what we "hope" to hear. Beautiful words cannot make our lives better.

ANNCR: It was a time of uncertainty, hope and change. The "Summer Of Love."
Half a world away, another kind of love -- of country.

John McCain: Shot down. Bayoneted. Tortured.

Offered early release, he said, "No." He'd sworn an oath.

Home, he turned to public service.

His philosophy: before party, polls and self ... America.

A maverick, John McCain tackled campaign reform, military reform, spending reform.

He took on presidents, partisans and popular opinion.

He believes our world is dangerous, our economy in shambles.

John McCain doesn't always tell us what we "hope" to hear.

Beautiful words cannot make our lives better.

But a man who has always put his country and her people before self, before politics can.

Don't "hope" for a better life. Vote for one.



Another kind of LOVE? Bombing civilians from on high? And when they shot him down, yes, I GUESS THEY WOULD perhaps not be so nice!

hey yes... you must be one of obama'a young dorks
the Vietnam war was started by democrats... like kennedy and johnson and mcnamara they caused more young americans to die than even bush's stupid war. too bad your mother never made you do homework instead of telling you you were brilliant
