Barack Obama’s campaign released two advertisements today; one is a pro Obama ad and the other an attack ad against John McCain. The attack ad paints McCain as out of touch with people today, flashing pictures from the 80’s of McCain as well as old, brick cell phones and even a rubik’s cube. The facts the ad uses to support their premise are that John McCain doesn’t know how to use a computer and doesn’t send his own emails. Watch:
The Bottom Line: This ad has absolutely no bearing on McCain’s qualifications to be the president. Even if the facts presented are true, I don’t see how it lines up with Obama’s promise for “a new kind of politics.” On the contrary this ad show’s obama’s true colors that he’s simply a true blue democrat that happens to be articulate and young. He will do or say anything to gain the power of the presidency.
