McCain Ad Asks If Obama Is Ready To Help Families

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON (AP) - Republican candidate John McCain has a new TV
ad that questions whether his rival, Barack Obama, is ready to help
American families.
The ad released Wednesday plays off a theme that the McCain
campaign has been pushing ever since Obama's tour of Europe - that
Obama is a worldwide celebrity but not a leader ready to be
president.
In the ad, an announcer poses the question, "Is the biggest
celebrity in the world ready to help your family?" The ad goes on
to criticize Obama as promoting higher taxes and more government
spending, both leading to fewer jobs.
The ad touts McCain on energy, jobs and the economy as a whole.
McCain just released an ad on Tuesday that seeks to distance him
from unpopular President Bush.
