Barack Obama says John McCain has abandoned the integrity of his 2000 presidential run to engage in “slash-and-burn, say-anything, do-anything politics” in a last-ditch effort to get elected.
Speaking in Iowa, Obama sought Friday to hold his Republican rival’s negative ads against him, although the Democratic presidential candidate is running negative ads too.
Obama quoted McCain as saying two elections ago that he would not take the low road to the highest office in the land.
Said Obama: “The high road didn’t lead him to the White House then, so this time, he decided to take a different route.”
The Illinois senator said his campaign will “respond swiftly and forcefully with the truth to whatever falsehoods they throw our way.”
Has Senator Obama EVER not been engaged in negative attacks during this whole campaign season? Attack Bush…attack McCain….McCain = Bush…..what a downer his Obamamercial was….nothing but violins playing. Let’s talk about the issues, Senator. Quit distracting the American public.
