Hyde Park's Ramada Inn cameo in Obama rebuttal to McCain "smears"


The Obama campaign produced this spot---playing in Wisconsin, not sure where else--in reply to McCain ad attacking Barack Obama for his association with Bill Ayers, Tony Rezo and Bill Daley. To rebut McCain's pitch that Obama's political career started in Ayers Hyde Park living room, the Obama presidential team shows a picture of the Ramada Inn on Lake Shore Drive, saying that is the real ground zero.


A clear, and informative response to the out-of-control McCain campaign's personal attack strategy. An excellent piece of work.

Why is this a smear or racist. You libs are crazy and especially you libs from Illinois. We have the most inept government in the nation.

I forgot you that you enjoy paying the highest sales and property taxes in the nation.
