(CNN) - On the heels of an aggressive effort by the Obama campaign to exploit John McCain's recent inability to recall how many houses he owns, the Arizona senator's campaign is launching a new television ad slamming Obama over his dealings with disgraced Chcago businessman Tony Rezko.
"Barack Obama knows a lot about housing problems," the 30-second ad's announcer states. "'One of his 'biggest fundraisers' helped him buy his million-dollar mansion. Purchasing part of the property he couldn't afford."
"From Obama, Rezko got 'political favors' including '14 million from taxpayers,'" the narrator also says. "Now, he's a convicted felon, facing jail."
The McCain campaign said the ad will air in "key states." Earlier Thursday, Obama's campaign released a housing ad of their own referencing his inability in a Politico interview to name the number of properties he and his wife own.
The Rezko thing? It was already proven that Obama did nothing wrong? Obama didn"t do anything wrong? Why Didn’t McCain Call Ralph Reed To Testify During Abramoff Investigation?
I am glad that McCain hit him back where it hurts. Obama did an underhanded deal with a convicted felon. He should be ashamed of himself. I think there is more to find out about Obama that will really show us who he truly is as a person. He does things that if another politician (white) did, they would be called in for it. The media is letting him get away with dishonest things but I suppose they are afraid to make too much of it becuse he is black and they will be called racist. That's the easiest excuse to use seeing that it makes all you white folks back off because you don't want to be called racist. Let all all his dirty laundry come out. I wonder what else is there lurking to be revealed.
obama did nothing wrong so get over it.
So....someone helped Obama buy his ONE house???!!!??? Is that what I am supposed to take away from this ad? McCain...have you figured out how many houseS you and Cindy own yet? Rezco is dead...Obama was never found guilty of any wrong doing. Lets start dragging out all the scum McCain and the Clintons are tied too in some form or fashion. Why is it never mentioned that McCain was part of the Keating Five...does anyone remember thatt liitle bit of criminal activity. Go home old man...you have plenty of them to choose from!!!!
Keating 5, Mr McCain what did that cost? Some of us remember. The rest of you should google it.
As for Reszko, if Obama had done something illegal, it would have come out in court because they sure tried hard enough to find some dirt.
this guy just doesn't know how to control himself
IF YOU ARE NOT FROM CHICAGO YOU WILL NOT
UNDERSTAND HOW MUCH OF A NON – ISSUE THIS IS !!
CHICAGO DID A FULL INVESTIGATION
(AND SO DID THE MEDIA)
AND THEY FOUND THAT OBAMA DID NOTHING
WRONG, ILLEGAL, OR UNETHICAL !!!!!
obama helped Rezko buy many homes with taxpayers money . this was done to help house the people in his area while a community organiser. these buildings have been mostly condemned and those that are not are in such disrepair that they soon will be Rezko grabbed the upfront money and ran leaving others to worry about the fallout. that all happened and obama was well aware of it before obama went to him for help.
All right, Johnny boy, let's talk about your relationship with a fellow named Charles Keating and the savings and loan debacle you helped bring about.
i thougt forien policy was issue number one
finally! let obama answer for his shady connections. rezko, and the link obama has to auchi, the iraqi businessman with connections to saddam hussein. bill ayers the domestic terrorist who bombed the pentagon, (among other buildings) and obama's relationship goes way back to the 1980's. can't wait till mccain does a commercial about that "friendly" relationship!
let me help you john mc cain......o bama friendS are....donald young....alexi giannoulias george soros.... huffington... and KOS.....OPRAH......AND ALL THE OTHER ILLEGAL CONTRIBUTIONS HE has managed to acquire from non AMERICANS VIA THE INTERNET
hey pumas did bill clinton having truble picking out his vp eight years ago
Typical of McCain; Obama was cleared of any dealings with Mr. Rezko. McCain is the one with the housing problem. I can't imagine not knowing how many houses I own.
Why not make an ad on him being an adulterer and the Keating 5 and supporting Bush 85% of the time..... oh wait that is McCain!
This has been debunked nine ways to Sunday. The Republicans have nothing to offer on why McCain does not know how many houses he owns or why he want's to bring back the draft. this is always their strategy – throw out nonsense nad get the spotlight off of McLame. To bad the MSM falls for it every time.
Keating Five, McCain. McCain is worse than Obama ever was. McCain is a fraud.
Obama Air Heads !!!!! Corupt Politicians Take tax Payers Money For Thier Corupt Circle of Freinds , So They ( Obama ) Can Get Their Home For $ 300,000 Under Market Value , And Have thay Corupt Freind Donate Hundreds Of Thousands To Your ( Obama's ) Campaigns .Corupt Politicians Like Obama Takes Tax Payers Money For Their Wife's Company , And In Return Obama 's Wife Gets A 250,000 Pay Raise . And That Company Donates To Obama's Campaigns .
This is such a slly thing. Let;s get to the important items.
Two words: KEATING FIVE
And also...define rich...out of touch elitist.
this is a joke Obama gave back all the money and distanced himself from rezko. McCain has his own "Tony Rezko" Charles Keating
YES! The Rezko connection is a major blight in Obama's record. Obama and Rezko go WAY BACK in Obama's political career. Rezko contributed to EVERY Obama IL campaign since DAY ONE! Obama manipulated Ilinois legislation to benefit Rezko's slum lord programs, all of which failed and cost Chicago MILLIONS of dollars. Then Rezko gave Michelle and Obama a favorable deal on their million-dollar home. There's no disputing that, no matter how hard you try. The record is very clear on that!
WE NEED TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THAT, AND OBAMA BETTER 'FESS UP!!
LOL ... all you Democrats ... "McCain is McSenile" ... too old .... LOL ... what has gotten real old and tired in a hurry is Obama. Rezko .. Ayers .. Wright ... polls got you Dems panicking .. have to call McCain more names ....... LOL !
Deception, misdirection and propaganda that is the Republican way. They have nothing so they make up something. Senator Obama needs to kick hitting Senator McCain and keep hitting hard. In this game second place gets you nothing.
mcains doin payback, but not warrented,,,,, he really needs new staff,,,,,,if mccain cant remember,, well, then doesnt that tell americans what he's like??????,,lol sure tells me,,,, my votes for obama,,,,,,,,mccian halloween isnt til oct,, silly boy,,
I hear Obama must get mad if he wants to win. How in the world can this man function in the White House if he has to get mad to win? This is the most stupid thing I have ever heard. We have other people working in the White House besides the President, I do no think they woul want to work around some that must get mad to be a winner. What a loser. I think Obama has more sense than that any way.
