[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2008/images/10/11/art.obamaad02.cnn.jpg caption="Obama released a tough new response ad Friday."]Barack Obama’s campaign released a new ad late Friday in response to a hard-hitting spot from the Republican National Committee’s independent expenditure unit that focused on his relationships with Chicago figures like William Ayers and Bill Daley; the script follows. The campaign has not announced where the spot will be airing.
NARRATOR: John McCain admits if the election’s about the economy, he’s going to lose.
Now, as Americans lose their jobs and savings, McCain’s resorting to smears and false attacks
Barack Obama launched his first campaign here (a picture of a hotel flashes on screen), not in anyone’s living room
And Bill Daley? He was confirmed as Commerce Secretary and praised for his great work by none other than John McCain (a picture of the two men together appears.)
It’s clear, with no plan to fix our economy, smears are all McCain has left.
(Republicans have alleged that Obama launched his first campaign in Ayers’ living room – a charge the Illinois senator has denied.)
