McCain Ad Hits Obama on Foreign Policy

Obama Team Says It's 'Same, Tired' Campaign Tactics

By Published on .

In what might be the first ad of the general election in which Team McCain attacks Barack Obama by name, they draw attention to Obama's record on Afghanistan and Iraq. (Video and response after the jump.)

"While Barack Obama wants to change American foreign policy to wind down the war in Iraq and address the grave threat posed by a resurgent al Qaeda and Taliban in Afghanistan, John McCain offers this patently misleading negative ad. Given his calls for a civil campaign, it's disappointing that Senator McCain has slipped so easily into the same, tired campaign tactics that have become so familiar to the American people," said Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton.
