The Republican National Committee last night began running ads questioning Barack Obama's commitment to energy reform, the first major ad buy by either party in the presidential race.

"Record gas prices, a climate in crisis," says the ad's narrator. "John McCain says solve it now." The spot then details McCain's "balanced" plan on energy and notes that the Arizona Senator is "pushing his own party to face climate change."

Obama, on the other hand, says nothing but "no" when it comes to addressing the energy problems the country is facing. "He just says no to lower gas taxes.... No to nuclear.... No to more production," says the narrator before concluding: "No new solutions. Barack Obama: Just the party line."

McCain Campaign: Focus on the issues, please. Tell the voters why Obama's energy plan is not working or wrong. Use facts, data, and experts telling voters that his plan is not working.

Voters are sick of this kind of childish ads--especially saying "no" to Obama without establishing any positive images of McCain yet. He has spent lots of money to build his public images, which are fake, yet voters think them make sense.

I do not want you to be smart so just think. If you can't think, just talk about McCain only, please.

Somebody who made this ads has to go.
