How about this for the start of an offensive? This is a fantastic hit against McCain's silly mortgage plan.

Obama Unleashes Ad Hitting McCain On His Cockamie Mortgage Plan!!

Greg Sargent at TPM reports that:

The ad hits McCain's plan by saying it "would shift the burden from lenders to taxpayers, guaranteeing a loss of taxpaper money."

The ad says the same lenders who caused the crisis would benefit, and uses this to tie McCain to Bush: "Putting bad actors ahead of taxpayers? We can't afford more of the same."

The spot signals the opening of a new offensive by the Obama campaign: As part of Obama's big jobs and economy tour through Ohio today, his advisers say, he'll be playing up his criticsm of McCain's mortgage plan."

O/T: Obama's up six points in the new Hotline/Diageo Poll!

Obama/Biden: 47%

McCain/Palin: 41%

Undec 9%

-- After a tightening earlier in the week, Obama has re-opened a 6-pt. lead over McCain. This was likely driven by the fact that Obama has expanded his lead among women voters. He now holds a 9 pt. advantage over McCain with women. He also has a 2 pt. lead over McCain among men.

-- Among the 66% of voters who say the economy is their #1 issue, Obama has a 13-pt advantage. And he holds a 6-pt. lead - 44-38% - on the question of who'd do the best job handling the economy. In yesterday's poll, the two were tied on this question.

-- Palin's approval ratings are also sliding and she has almost a 1-1 fav/unfav rating, with 46% rating her favorably and 43% rating her unfavorably.

Today's Diageo/Hotline tracking poll, conducted 10/6-8 by FD, surveyed 852 LVs and has a margin of error of +/- 3.4%. Party ID Breakdown for the sample is 41%D, 36%R, 18%I.

Here's a new Obama ad hitting McCain on healthcare that's being aired in Florida now:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
