HEY JOHN THIS IS YOUR MO, YOU TAKE FROM THE POOR
AND GIVE TO THE RICH!
13 CARS AND 7 HOUSES LATER JOHN MCCAIN WANTS THE
AMERICAN CITIZENS TO VOTE FOR HIM WHEN MOST OF
US ARE LIVING CHECK TO CHECK!
JOHN YOU NEED TO GIVE UP THIS CRUSADE TO BE
PRESIDENT YOU DON'T MESH WITH AMERICA!
FRIDAY NIGHT - OBAMA IN A KNOCKOUT OVER MCCAIN
IN DEBATE NUMBER 1!

This kind of ad makes a distinction between the politics of McCain and the politics of Obama.
Obama wants to stop this practice of supporting lobbyists and offshore companies who get all the tax breaks they don't even need.
It makes sense to find facts about practices that need to be ended, and this example is representative of what has been happening to our country's detriment.

McPain doesn't stand a chance against Obama in the debates. THe same, however, can be sed about Bush debating anyone, unfortunately. McPain will fail miserably, and the corporate media might spin it as a successful trouncing of the only candidate in this race woorth putting in the Oval Office. Still, it's definitely Obama/Biden in '08.
