Seriously. This seems pretty stupid given recent events of massive government bailouts to save banks (cough…Keating…cough…5):
Republican presidential nominee John McCain sparked a furious exchange of campaign attacks Thursday night with the release of a television ad linking Democratic nominee Barack Obama to a former Fannie Mae chief who was forced out by an accounting scandal.
The ad accuses Obama of using Franklin Raines as an adviser, a claim based on a July Washington Post profile of Raines that reported he had ?taken calls from Barack Obama ?s presidential campaign seeking his advice on mortgage and housing policy matters.?
The Obama campaign disputes that Raines ever advised Obama or the campaign.
Of course, more lies from camp McCain. Obama fired back quickly:
…and they haven’t even begun. Keating 5 still in the holster. 😉 Careful, Johnnie boy. Easy does it. You’re walking on broken glass here.
