Dubious Claims in Obama’s Ads Against McCain, Despite Vow of Truth

Dubious Claims in Obama’s Ads Against McCain, Despite Vow of Truth

By JIM RUTENBERG and JULIE BOSMAN

ROANOKE, Va. — Two weeks ago, Senator Barack Obama’s presidential campaign gleefully publicized a spate of news reports about misleading and untruthful statements in the advertisements of his rival, Senator John McCain. Asked by a voter in New Hampshire if he would respond in kind, Mr. Obama said, “I just have a different philosophy, I’m going to respond with the truth,” adding, “I’m not going to start making up lies about John McCain.”


In all, Mr. Obama has released at least five commercials that have been criticized as misleading or untruthful against Mr. McCain’s positions in the past two weeks. Mr. Obama drew complaints from many of the independent fact-checking groups and editorial writers who just two weeks ago were criticizing Mr. McCain for producing a large share of this year’s untruthful spots (“Pants on Fire,” the fact-checking Web site PolitiFact.com wrote of Mr. Obama’s advertisement invoking Mr. Limbaugh; “False!” FactCheck.org said of his commercial on Social Security.)

Some Democrats expressed concern that Mr. Obama, in stretching the truth in some of his advertisements, was putting at risk the “above politics” persona he has tried to cultivate.

Wow, a rep proping up a rep. 

Why is everybody so concerned with party lines?  Where is the guy that is going to make the difference?

Nobody sees wants to see the entire picture.  They see rep or dem.

Yeah imagine that Obama has unleashed the same 527's McCain swears he has no say over when they spread disingenuous lies.

Live by the sword, die by the sword. Fight fire with fire, pick your own euphemism.

It doesn't bother me at all.

Obama could take a dump on your steak at Berns and it wouldn't bother you.   Your hatred for Republicans blinds you to any sense of reason.
