(CNN) – Barack Obama is up with a new one-minute radio ad in Virginia and Dayton, Ohio that ties John McCain to George W. Bush and Karl Rove, and accuses McCain of “making stuff up” about Obama’s tax plan.
The spot features a man and a woman discussing McCain’s assertion –- also described in an RNC radio ad running in those markets - that Obama would raise taxes on people making $32,000 a year.
“John McCain, he’s got new ads attacking Barack Obama on taxes,” the man says.
“Well, that’s not new,” the woman responds. “Bush, McCain, Karl Rove. That’s how those guys work.”
“This is shameful,” the man says. “It’s just making stuff up.”
The ad says that Obama would only raise taxes on those making over $250,000, and cites FactCheck.org as describing McCain’s charges as “not true.”
“Sounds like George Bush all over again,” the woman says.
“Guess that’s why they say John McCain, McSame as Bush,” the man says, concluding the ad.
