[Chants: "Obama, Obama..."] Male Announcer: Life in the spotlight must be grand for Barack Obama.  But is he ready to lead in tough economic times?

Official records document, Barack Obama has a history of raising taxes -- even on middle class Americans making just $42,000 a year.

If elected President, Obama's promises would mean even more taxes on income, electricity, oil, small business, seniors, your life savings, your family.

Painful taxes when times are tough enough.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal calls Obama's ideas "a recipe for economic disaster".

The Washington Post says Obama's policies are "poorly crafted" and will result in "higher prices at the pump."

And The Wall Street Journal reports Obama's plans will "stunt small business" and threaten "America's economic competitiveness."

More taxes.  Higher gas prices.  A recipe for economic disaster.

That's the real Obama.

McCain: I'm John McCain and I approved this message.

Announcer: Paid for by John McCain 2008.
