Watch: The McCain campaign released a new ad Tuesday claiming Obama never put forth a plan to fix the ailing economy.
(CNN)— In the wake of one of the biggest banking failures in American history, the McCain campaign released a new ad Tuesday blasting Obama and his “liberal allies” for staying “mum” on their plans for the economic crisis.
“In crisis, experience matters,” the announcer says. “McCain and his Congressional allies led.”
“Obama and his liberal allies? Mum on the market crisis.”
Both presidential nominees have been using the crisis on Wall Street to show strength and leadership on economic policy, but the latest CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll shows more American’s place the blame for the economic failure on the Republican Party. 47 percent of registered voters questioned said the GOP is more to blame, with 24 percent placing the blame on the Democratic Party.
The 30-second spot, “Mum,” is the latest attempt by the McCain campaign to argue Obama never put for his own plan for the ailing economy.
However, a recent fact check shows Obama has outlined his plans several times since the meltdown on Wall Street.
According the the McCain campaign the ad will air nationally.
