GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Sen. Barack Obama's campaign has painted a grim picture in a new Web video aimed at getting record voter turnout - a John McCain victory.
The YouTube video, posted but not released to reporters, features a mock MSNBC projection that Mr. McCain "wins" the Nov. 4 contest, 51 percent to 49 percent for Mr. Obama.
"John McCain elected 44th president" and "Voter turnout lower than expected" are the mock captions with an MSNBC "Breaking News" headline under a smiling Mr. McCain.
"It doesn't have to be that way," flashes across the screen before the clip sends voters to the campaign's VoteforChange.com site. It urges them to use the site to "Register to vote, request to vote absentee, find your polling location."

I got a smile watching this. Not sure why this video is called “bad news”
Yeah, 65-35 would be better...
I am taking it as prophetic.
Isn’t this technically shooting oneself in the foot?
Barack Obama EASILY has the worst campaign advertising team since, well, John Kerry.
Wonder if MSNBC will demand to take down the ad because of use of their news broadcast?
It is all going to come down to Get Out The Vote efforts in battleground states.
Who will be canvassing on the next four weekends?
Who is going to make the phone calls in the last weekend?
Who is going to drive voters to the polls, especially if the weather’s bad?
No bad news there whatsoever!! Just a ‘voter turnout lower than expected’ because the majority of American voters KNOW that Ubama is an empty suit!! LOL!
I think that the Ubies are being prophetic because I think this is exactly what will happen. Remember 2004 and all those people from libby land who claimed to have registered but then didn’t go vote after all (or never registered at all)?
I would LOVE to see this commercial AFTER the election. :-) *giggles*
...”find your polling location on a map and plot the exact route you will take to get there, don’t forget to tie your shoes with double knots so that you don’t stumble as you’re getting on the bus, don’t overindulge in alcohol the night before or you’ll have trouble getting out of tha house by 12pm when the poll lines are longest, remember to stop and ask for directions if you get lost along the way”...
What the hell kind of barking moonbat was that video supposed to appeal to? The image of a smiling John McCain in front of an enthusiastic audience does not strike fear into the hearts of most Americans.
Wondered the same thing. Doubt it.
McCain should JUMP on this and make it show how MSNBC/MSM is in the tank for nObama. That'll fire up the folks in battleground states.
McCain’s landslide a comin’...
The ad put a smile on face, except for the end.
Prophetic. That was my first thought.
Actually, when McCain wins, I’m going to watch the returns on MSNBC. I may get to see a few on-air suicides. (Read me, Olbie?)
I'm looking forward to the quadrennial spectacle of the infobabes wearing black on the day after the election.
They are snotty brats running it...seriously...18-24 year old kids running 90% of it.
MSNBC likely made it. They are so in the tank for Obama and make no excuse about it.
Wanna see a GOOD video? Check this one out:
The only ‘bad news’ part of that clip is that 49% of the country is stupid enough to vote for an empty suit.
McCain should clip off the last part and put it on his site.
I am “down” with that! That was fantastic!
How can people not think?
There’s more racists than sexists.
Someone must be editing the comments ... thus far there’s not beena single positive remark.
I just don’t see what was so horrible about the video. It was GREAT.
Look at Reagan’s landslide that’ll give you a percent.
Obamorons are such pussies. McCain let’s anyone post any comment on their YouTube channel. Obama-Biden’s channel only allows comments by “approval”, meaning that only acolytes may comment. Just like Keith Olbermann’s show, on which he is too much of a pussy to allow a single person on with whom he disagrees.
Exactly. Isn’t this EXACTLY the same as McCain using Katie’s perky face?
Unfortunately he has 3 broadcast networks, two cable networks, and dozens of magazines and newspapers as campaign volunteers.
Oh, that makes my so happy!
Please let it be. We must make it happen.
“It is all going to come down to Get Out The Vote efforts in battleground states.”
Correct. GOTV is worth 5%, and this is a 5% race.
“Who will be canvassing on the next four weekends?”
Did 3 hours of blockwalking and leaflet distributing for my state rep candidate. Everyone needs to do the same. There are ‘battles’ in each state and in many levels -Senate, Congress, statehouse as well as President. Do your part and we all win.
