McCain Releases Attack Ad In Advance Of Obama Trip

John McCain gets aggressive in his new ad, accusing Obama of changing his position on the Iraq for political reasons and ignoring Afghanistan in the Senate. He also released a 17-page booklet attacking Obama's foreign policy, complete with the candidate's once-used, much-mocked seal.


The transcript:

ANNCR: Barack Obama never held a single Senate hearing on Afghanistan.

He hasn't been to Iraq in years.

He voted against funding our troops.

Positions that helped him win his nomination. Now Obama is changing to help himself become president.

John McCain has always supported our troops and the surge that's working.

McCain. Country first.

JOHN MCCAIN: I'm John McCain and I approve this message.
