Ad Watch: McCain On Woodstock (Again), Giuliani Takes 'Chances', Obama On Social Security
McCain And Woodstock, Take Two
John McCain is airing another ad in New Hampshire criticizing Hillary Clinton for her efforts to secure $1 million in federal funding for the Museum at Bethel Woods, focused on the 1969 Woodstock music festival.
"[The museum is] the farthest thing from a hippie museum that anything could be," Harold Russell, a dairy farmer and Bethel, N.Y. town supervisor told The Post's Joel Achenback last week. "I personally take a little offense to that."
Achenbach also reports that "In this rural area, the project is seen as crucial to the economic recovery of a region hammered by the closing of once-popular Borscht Belt tourist resorts."
Those sentiments have not deterred the McCain team.
"If you want to relive Woodstock, buy the record," the new ad's announcer says.
Giuliani Discusses His Prostate Cancer
The former mayor's cancer scare kicks off his newest radio ad, airing in New Hampshire. It focuses on his health care proposals.
"You and I should be making the decisions about what kind of health care we get with our doctors, not with a government bureaucrat," Giuliani says in the ad. "What we need to do is to give people a $15,000 deduction for a family, a $7,500 education for an individual, so they can go out and buy their own health insurance. If we do that, and we end up with a market of 50, 60 million Americans buying their own health insurance, without a mandate, the cost of health insurance will come down and the quality will come up."
Obama's Newest Focuses on Social Security
Barack Obama's latest ad is called "Wind." It's airing in Iowa, and highlights his plans to fix Social Security.
"If we have failed to have a real honest conversation about Social Security, it will not get fixed," Obama says in the 30-second spot. "This is a program that millions of people depend on. I don't want to just put my finger out to the wind, and see what the polls say. I want to bring the country together to solve a problem."
