Obama Needs to Cut the Crap and Get to the Point

When will the Obama campaign cut the crap and get to the point?

It's not that hard to write the script for a hard-hitting, honest 30-second ad that Barack Obama should be running against John McCain. Here's one version:

Record gas prices.
Recession and a battered stock market.
Rising unemployment and declining wages.
Inadequate health care.
Record foreclosures.
Unending war.
All brought to you by George Bush and the Republicans.
That's what you'll get more of from John McCain and Sarah Palin
Barack Obama and Joe Biden will cut taxes for working Americans,
create jobs and end the war in Iraq
Enough is enough.
I'm Barack Obama and I approved this ad.
