It's getting harder to take McCain seriously. Obama has been far from mum on the financial bailout. In fact, it seems to be unanimous that Obama is better in a crisis. Even conservative George Will says Obama has shown more leadership. And this past Sunday on This Week with George S., Will said that he's fearful of McCain. Meanwhile, McCain pretends that he's a regulator. He's see through -- exposed -- and all he can do is keep telling lies and hope that it sinks in. That by the way is the Rovian way -- turn your opponent's strength into a weakness.
CNN: McCain's campaign released a television ad Tuesday that builds on McCain's argument that Obama is not ready to lead.
"In crisis, experience matters. McCain and his Congressional allies led," an announcer says in the 30-second spot.
"Obama and his liberal allies? Mum on the market crisis," the announcer says.
Words beside a picture of Obama read "no leadership" as the announcer says, "A risk your family can't afford."
In response to the ad, the Obama campaign charged that McCain is the candidate who has not shown leadership.
"This ad is laughable. If you believe John McCain, George Bush and the Republicans in Washington have led on reforming Wall Street and restraining CEO pay, I've got a bridge in Alaska to sell you," said Obama-Biden spokesman Bill Burton.
