Obama, SEIU Remind McCain Who George Bush Is
McCain's move away from President Bush last night (read my earlier post "George Bush? Who's He?" here) is an obvious target for the Obama campaign and its allies. And who are they to pass it up?
Here's an ad, using McCain's "I'm not President Bush" line from the debate. It's a little raggedy -- you'll hear the audio upcut at the end -- but the campaign says it's ready to go.
But is this ad really going on the air? Obama's people haven't said. Instead, the campaign -- the best-financed presidential operation in history -- asks donors to kick in a few bucks to help put the ad on the air.
All year, McCain's connections to President Bush have been fodder for liberal independent groups. Now the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) posts this new ad online. The basic message: McCain's even worse.
Not exactly a shocker of a message from the SEIU, which has pumped millions of dollars and thousands of hours of work into this election.
