Obama Continues To Focus On McCainNov 8, 11:43 PM
Barack Obama has continued to focus his attacks on John McCain even after Sarah Palin was announced as the Republican vice presidential candidate. At first the campaign did seem aggressive towards the new target, but in the latest advertisement Palin is shown, but never mentioned. Instead, the ads continue to focus on McCain and the similarities between him and Bush.
The announcer in the commercial speaks of how McCain stands for “no change”, voting with Bush 90 percent of the time. It also talks about how the Republican thinks the economy is currently strong and criticizes him for wanting to continue to spend $10 billion a month in Iraq.
Initially, a member of the Obama campaign did attack Palin (on her lack of experience), but Obama quickly quelled the movement as he continued to focus on his main opponent. In fact, Obama later went on to say a few good things about Palin as well.
