Earlier today I wrote: While Obama Campaigns Overseas McCain Needs To Go On Offense–
With Obama going overseas to gain favor and hold the first of its kind campaign rally’s to people who can’t vote, it’s a perfect time for McCain to strike at Obama and go on offense!
While I was putting this together Marc Ambinder reported that the McCain camp might be planning to do exactly that:
Today, the McCain campaign will send out a video called “The Obama Iraq Documentary: Whatever the Politics Demand.””The video doesn’t lie,” a McCain aide says. “With Obama’s trip coming up, we thought it important to put together a documentary video outlining the various zigs and zags of his position on Iraq. It presents a candidate willing to let his political ambition dictate his position on what is obviously the most critical national security issue we face.”And I’ve heard back from the McCain campaign: Obama, while overseas, is fair game.
As an aside, the next time anyone tries to tell you that there’s no liberal bias in the media… you can point to the fact that for the first time in history network anchors will accompany a presidential candidate on an overseas trip! That’s right all three major network anchors are slated to accompany Barack Obama on his trip. I suppose they don’t see their bias and unbalanced actions as they did not accompany McCain in the same fashion.
Jill Hazelbaker, Communications Director for John McCain, says Obama’s trip overseas is nothing but a big campaign rally.
