McCain Attacks Obama in New Radio Ad in VA

Tim Craig

As Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) begins a two-day presidential campaign swing across Virginia, his GOP opponent has released a hard-hitting radio ad in the state over the issue of taxes and spending.

Sen. John McCain (Ariz.), the presumptive GOP nominee for president, accuses Obama in the ad of wanting to raise taxes to pay for an ambitious new round of government spending.

"Celebrities like to spend their millions. Barack Obama is no different," a narrator says. "Only it's your money he wants to spend. Obama's got plans. Big plans, for your money."

Taxes and spending have long been potent political issues in Virginia, where many residents take pride in the state's reputation as a historically low-tax state.

It seems odd to me that anyone would believe this ad, considering how much money has been spent on an invasion of a foriegn country in the last eight years. Our deficit is at new record heights thanks to the current administration.
