[Music] McCain (voiceover): I'm John McCain and I approved this message.
The Obama campaign responded thusly...
“This ad is just more of the same
old false and discredited attacks that Senator McCain knows aren’t
true. Senator McCain will say or do anything to hide the truth:
while Obama will cut taxes for the middle class, McCain will give a
billion dollars in new tax breaks to America’s eight largest
corporations, while his plan provides no direct relief for more than
100 million American Families. And despite his rhetoric, he’s
refusing to support the bipartisan Senate proposal to expand production
and invest in renewable energy because he wants to protect tax breaks
for oil companies. We’ve seen what happens when we put the oil
companies and their lobbyists ahead of working families, and that’s
exactly what Americans want to change in this election,” said Obama
campaign spokesman Hari Sevugan.
