McCain highlights economic strategy in new ad


Watch John McCain’s new ad highlighting his plans for the economy

(CNN)— Keeping up with the number one voter concern this election cycle, John McCain’s campaign released its second general election ad Tuesday stressing his plans to ‘ignite’ the economy.

“As President, John McCain will take the best ideas from both parties to spur innovation,” the narrator says.

The 30 second spot titled “Ignite,” gives bullet points of the presumptive Republican nominee’s plan for taxes, healthcare, energy, job creation and education, while corresponding images pan across the screen.

“Initiatives that will unite us and ignite our economy," the narrator tells viewers. "Big ideas for serious problems.”

According to McCain’s campaign, the ad will air in targeted markets in Ohio and Pennsylvania.

    – YOUR AGE – 43
    – YOUR IQ – 175
    – YOUR PSYCHIATRIC RECORD – never been.

    How about yours? If you are interested, I have alos retired from the military, traveled around the world, live in other countries and I teach at a college.

    I have also always supported the Dems until this election when the best people left too soon and left us with this problem.

    According to what McCain said at the debates his economic plan is to drop interest rates to 0% (can you say inflation) and stay in Iraq for another 100 years. What a winning plan!!!! Senile Old Man with no knowledge of foreign policy & economics with anger issues for President.

    To answer Love USA's question. The reason nothing is getting done in Congress is because of G Dubya and his cronies veto everything that helps average families.

    He has this remarkable ability not to use that thing between his ears. I'm really surprised that his brain is still comatose after the drugs and alcohol he's done or still doing.

  6. Do You Know McGoo?

    We know you John, why? Because we've seen you for seven years. You are the spitting image of GW, and you know it. You love his war so much that you are chomping at the bit to start another one, with Iran.

    We know you John, and it's not a pretty picture.

  7. John McGoo

    He is so out of touch it's funny. I don't have one thing to say about Mr. McGoo except he will never be my president. He's a good man, but he needs to retire. He doesn't have new ideas, just George Bush's ideas–and we all know where those ideas got us. In the toilet.

    Bring the boys home, bring them back alive, bring the boys home, bring them back alive. Why don't you turn the ships around...

    No John McSame, McMini Me, McGoo–NEVER.

  9. You're The Same John McCain

    This man has too many houses to keep up with average Americans, I think the straight talk is getting a little garbled.
