Obama for America
"Out of Touch"
|Obama (voiceover): I'm
Barack Obama and I approve this message.
[Music] Male Announcer: Call it "Country Club Economics."
How many houses does he own?
John McCain says he can't even remember anymore.
Well, it's seven.
No wonder McCain just said the
fundamentals of our economy are strong. And
anyone making less than
five-million-dollars-a-year is middle-class.
Notes: This ad
was released on the day that Obama outlined his "New Energy for America
Plan" in a speech in Lansing, MI. McCain campaign spokesman
Tucker Bounds responded with this statement:
Notes: Another take on the theme initiated with yesterday's ad "Seven."
According to the press release...
The ad highlights John McCain’s “Country Club Economics” and his desire to offer more of the same economic policies we’ve gotten from President Bush. Senator McCain can’t even remember how many homes he owns and thinks anyone making less than $5 million is just middle class, which explains why he has little relief to offer working families struggling to make ends meet.
