(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.”
Go Home Obama !! your a Sick person!! Thank God a real man like McCain can stand up to your lies.
You take the low road and I'll take the high road ....(Scotish tune), and
we will beat you in November."
Nice, now tie it in with other forms of advertising.
Surely I am not the only one that finds this carping, nasty-toned ad commentary tiresome. I really do not want to have to hear it. I would much rather hear about what each candidate believes is a plan to do something about a specific problem facing the American worker. I would like to be turned on by thoughtful comments that present a positive plan for change-solutions that improve problems that regular Americans face.
This is disgusting!!! Both of these candidates should be focusing on the issues instead of "well, you hit me first" responses to each other. When are we going to get more then the two party system in this country, when are we going to hold congress and are elected officials responsible for the promises that they they make to the american people. When are we going to have a goverment that works together in solving problems then them being worried about the there seat count in each of there own parties. Our congress needs to be thrown out on there head's. We the American people are letting these politicians get away with murder. When are "we the people" going to take a stand and stand up for what "We the people" are paying these politicans to do. They don't even listen to the american people at ALL!!!!!
Why is it that in every election the Democrats want to talk issues and the Republicans want to talk trash. Can't McCain hold onto a thought long enough to express it when it comes to solving our Country's problems instead of making stupid allegations against Barack Obama?
Obama needs to counter the lies coming from the GOP somehow. There are too many idiots right here in America that will actually believe the GOP lies and manipulations and wouldn't you know it, most of them are in the South, the racist and uneducated society of America.
Senator McCain is thrashing his legacy. He's gone from a respected statesman to partisan hack who will stoop to any low if it may help his campaign.
Terrible. I have lost all respect of him.

McNegativead is trying to scare people into voting for him. He will loose this campaign race as people are tired of the same bush politics..
Karl Rove is a disgrace and McNegativead is not different..
Barack Obama is a positive influence to help America bring change and dignity back to all of us through positive leadership..
CNN all you do all day is remove blogs and make up crooked Polls that is telling us how you are hiding anything negative about the old geezer Mc Looser .
OBAM CAN YOU NOT EVER COME UP WITH AN IDEA FOR YOURSELF. THIS JUST WILL NOT CUT IT. IF ELECTED WHO ARE YOU GOING TO COPY FROM THEN. NO WONDER YOU WAS ABLE TO GRADUATE HARVARD. THEY REALLY NEED TO LOOK INTO THAT ONE. I BELIEVE YOUR DIPLOMA IS COUNTERFEIT.
What Obama and his supporters trying to achieve, please let the religion and the art section handle that, and let the government be government.
the best thing to do is let the McCain camp decide how they want to lose the election. And they have been better at it so far.
Obama learned the Carl Rove handbook and used it against Hillary, and that was fine, now he can't take the heat?? He had better get used to it, it's just now starting, if he can't play the game,maybe he should step back and sit down on the porch in a rocking chair and let the ELECTED nominee Senator Clinton beat the republicans, because Obama can't do it.
Facebook facts: Obama fans = 125 million and growing with every refresh button. McBush fans = ... about 1/10 of it. McBush is jealous of Obama popularity.
I think Paris Hilton reminds McBush of what Cindy McCain once was. A blondie born to a filthy rich father.
Shouldn't be hard to fill this site with accurate information that can be fact checked. The only problem is that those on the right have already shown that they don't have any real limitations on what type of behavior they will accept as long as they win.
Johnny Mac has lost his freakin' mind!
All I want is for them to discuss the issues. McGrumpy has been grouchy every since Obama took his foreign travels.
McCain has been on foreign travels, and Obama did not behave like this. Old man grumpy does not nee to be POTUS. He is too tempermental!
Mccain Has Not Taken The Low Road! He Has Tunneled Under The Road Like A Worm! Like A Slimy, Dishonorable Worm!
Yet, Obama fans do not see him as negative. There are none so blind as he who will not see.
Your being played, Dumbama.
McCain is pathetic. Its so obvious that MCain is jealous of Obama's intelligence and popularity.
