Obama campaign launches 'Low Road Express' Web site

The Obama campaign launched a new Web site Thursday.
The Obama campaign launched a new Web site Thursday.

(CNN) – A day after the Obama campaign released an advertisement entitled “Low Road,” the presumptive Democratic nominee’s camp is following up with the Web site “Low Road Express.”

The new site collects media coverage – editorials, fact check articles, and video clips - about the strategies and tactics of Sen. John McCain’s campaign in recent weeks.

The Republican National Committee recently launched two Web sites focused on Obama. On Wednesday, the RNC rolled out “Audacity Watch,” a Web site that collects together video clips of media coverage about Obama and an RSS feed of information from GOP.com. Earlier this week, the RNC also launched “BarackBook,” a site that parodies Facebook, a popular social networking Web site where Obama has amassed more than a million supporters.

The Obama and McCain campaigns have traded fire this week as McCain released an ad entitled “Celeb” that likened Obama’s public notoriety with that of Paris Hilton and Britney Spears. The Obama campaign quickly responded with the “Low Road” advertisement.

UPDATE: McCain campaign spokesman Tucker Bounds issued the following statement about the Obama campaign's "Low Road Express" Web site: “Barack Obama’s campaign created his global celebrity status - we are celebrating it and informing voters of his inexperience. If there’s a low road in this campaign, Obama’s campaign paved it when they launched the first negative attack ad in this election.”

    John McCain is angry and old nothing help him he need to go home and chill out. He is winning and gallous of Obama 's trip and love that people have for him. I still remember his interview that he had and said we do not want negative Campaign HA HA HA . McCain may have experience, too much experience as a solder, but I worry about his judgment in coming years as president

    Barack has no job, no issues. He wants to have websites to support him. Barack is making himself the biggest joke. Our other democrat friends are watching him. Frankly I have noticed nothing in barack which is presidential. Barack, it is time for you to go home.

    Low Road Express, all the way from Chicago.... All Aboard!!!

    Paris Hilton, Britney Spears and Barack Obama three empty suits that have nothing to sell but fluff.

    And the champion fluff maker is Obama especially when he declares that "We are the ones we have been waiting for"!

    And playing the race card is your weakest aspect and unworthy of anyone who would want to be the president of the most powerful county in the world.

    Is that what you would do with Internation countries when you don"t get your way, play the race card..

    You are pathetic and finished!!!!

    Obama has used even stronger language. According to a June 20 Reuters wire service story, Obama said at a Florida fundraiser,"they're going to try to make you afraid of me," Obama said. "He's young and inexperienced and he's got a funny name. And did I mention he's black?"

    HAHAHAHA !!! That wussy O-bambi is just as much girly as Brittney and Paris anyway. Quit whinning already, you are lucky I am not the one putting those ads together. I would explain just how close a friend and partner Rezco the project lord is to him. And just how the people of Chicago have suffered under Rezco and just how much O-bambi has recieved from Rezco. So just QUIT YOUR WINNING, Hillary is more stronger than you are. You don't like the ads, TOO FRIGGIN BAD !!! If the shoe fits wear it. If you don't like people exposing the true O-bambi, then man-up and quit acting like a girl. HAHAHAHA !!!

    This is awesome! I dont think the campaigns should be focused on all this back-and-forth, but now that McCain has sunk so low it's time for Obama to shine a little light down in the gutter.

    Speak the truth, people, 'cause we can see through the lies.

    Obama, you are nothing but a whiner! Waaah, waaah, waaah. They're attacking my policies, they're attacking my inexperience, they're attacking me because I'm the liberal media's little darling boy. Grow a backbone, quit throwing out the race card every chance you get, and prove to us that your not as weak as you portray yourself. Your running for the office of the leader of the free world. What are you going to do when another country starts criticizing you. Tell them they're against you because you're half black and if you looked like the other Presidents on our money they'd agree with you?
