Barack Obama Opposes Lifting The Ban On Offshore Drilling. Obama: "The politics may have changed, but the facts haven't. The accuracy of Sen.

Barack Obama, Remarks At Press Availability, Jacksonville, FL, 6/20/08)

Barack Obama Recently Criticized Expanding Nuclear Power. Obama: "That might make sense in Washington, but it doesn't make sense for America.

(Sen. Barack Obama, Remarks At Campaign Event, Las Vegas, NV, 6/24/08)

Barack Obama Has Called For Higher Income Taxes, Social Security Taxes, Capital Gains And Dividend Taxes, And Corporate Taxes, As Well As "Massive New Domestic Spending." "Obama's transformation, if you go by his campaign so far, would mean higher income taxes, higher Social Security taxes, higher investment taxes, higher corporate taxes, massive new domestic spending, and a healthcare plan that perhaps could be the next step to a full-scale, single-payer system. Is that what most Americans want, someone who will fulfill a Democratic policy wish list?" (James Pethokoukis, "Barack Hussein Reagan? Ronald Wilson Obama?"

Another McCain ad, this one aimed at Michigan.
I think this is a fantastic ad. Very well done.
The McCain team certainly has been pumping out the ads today. They are hitting homeruns with most of them.
Excellent ad! Very well done.
Good ad. I think these polls are very unaccurate. They are either being manipulated by the pollster, or are using a flawed approach. I have talked to numerous democrats who are either voting for McCain or not voting. The leftists will be in for a surprise this year.
It’s pretty simple, really: make it expensive to do business here at home? Move overseas.
That IS a fabulous ad.
Now if we could get rid of the H1Bs.
This is a good ad, but they don’t dare to say the most important reason: the labor union make it very costly to hire local workers. The cost is not only about high salary but also about the generous fringe benefits as well.
Agreed... whoever is running the McCain response ad campaign is doing a great job...hitting hard, hitting fast...
McCain showing Michigan some love!
We are in play. Just keep hitting the economy issue.
Very effective ad. One of the best so far. That ad would work well in any state that depends on manufacturing jobs.
You found this early! Might not be a bad idea for a few Freepers to rate this thing before the YouTube Rats infest it.
I haven’t seen one of these new adds on TV today but have seen many Obama adds. I’m near Green Bay and am wondering what’s up with that?
So true, too. Late 70s Akron, OH, Youngstown, OH, Muncie, IN, Richmond, IN... auto jobs loss due to Carter's policy of allowing Japanese cars into the country.
It was heartbreaking to watch the families lose everything.
NAFTA and other Dem policies listed in McCain's latest ad have hurt American families.
Nice, but the real reason why Michigan manufacturing is in the dumps is the unions. McCain should have had the guts to point that out.
I don’t understand why McCain hasn’t done an ad yet where Barry says that he is fine with gas at $4gal.
That alone would probably clinch the election.
