Hit the Brakes

September 3, 2008

An Obama ad running in Michigan claims McCain didn't support loan guarantees for the auto industry. In fact, he does support them.


A new Obama ad targeted to Michigan voters says McCain "refused to support loan guarantees for the auto industry."

That was true, but it's not now and it wasn't when this ad was made. Yet the ad doesn't mention McCain's changed position on government support for the carmakers.

Note: This is a summary only. The full article with analysis, images and citations may be viewed on our Web site:

FactCheck.org: Hit the Brakes
Perhaps..just perhaps..McCain is the "real" candidate for change! But is his "change" a change in political philosophy or as "others" call it.."a road to Damascus"? I call McCain master of the flip-flop,you call it what you wish!

If you were to look at EVERY candidate from the last 60 years, you'll find ads which aren't honest and which are determined to cast doubts on their opponent...

Seeing it in this campaign is nothing new, and nothing more disturbing than anything previously done...SOP...

What counts is the bigger picture...I'll take a candidate who lied 10 times in advertising but has the wherewithal to run the country over someone who "only" lied 8 times but has every intention to redistribute wealth and turn this country into a socialized nation...

Best option?...Obviously not...But the alternatives are much worse...
