The best McCain ad so far.
Obama’s new radio ad, airing widely in at least seven swing states, tells voters McCain “will make abortion illegal.”
I really hope Obama is telling the truth in this hopefully prophetic ad.
If Obama thinks that abortion is such a winning issue I hope he incorporates it in his stump speech instead of just when speaking in front of pro-abortion groups. Yeah abortion is such a winning issue in the Democratic party that the last congressional elections were dominated by pro-life (or somewhat pro-life ) Democrats. Pres Clinton was able to win by not appearing as radical on abortion and his "safe, legal, rare" line (a line removed from the Democratic Platform this time around).
I do wonder though about the lack of ads by the McCain campaign going after Sen. Obama on abortion. The commercials just about write themselves considering that he is the most radically pro-abortion presidential candidate ever. How about an ad with Obama calling the NRLC liars about the born alive infant protection act, and then his campaign saying he misspoke? Sen. Obama has more than just an Achilles’ heel on this issue. So I do hope they respond to the Obama ad with a pro-life ad of their own.
The Sarah Palin pick revitalized his campaign for a number of reasons, but really it gave hope to pro-lifers and social conservatives who were so weary of Sen. McCain and now are coming out of the closets and willing to support him. Myself included along with some of my blog friends in St. Blogs. Still though Obama’s radical record on abortion and other issues is not as known as they should be and the so-called Catholic vote has shifted away from Obama the more it has become known. So while some of the McCain ads have been quite good in poking fun at Obama, it is time to make better known that he would rather let children die who were born alive than allow in any way a challenge to abortion laws.
