Since McCain's campaign claims that after 21 months of the media and US citizens vetting Barack Obama, we still somehow don't know who he is, Obama's campaign decided to respond in kind.  Did Obama's campaign respond with negative attacks about McCain's 26 years of transgressions and shady characters?  No. Did Obama bring up G. Gordon Libby or Rick Davis's ties to Fannie Mae? No.  Instead, Obama's campaign decided to do what they do best. Be inspirational.  I am so completely proud.

Barack Obama's campaign put together a video of behind-the-scenes campaign footage to answer the question John McCain and Sarah Palin keep asking: "Who Is Barack Obama?"

While McCain's aids are laughingly trying to still defend their actions and the innuendos that are causing their crowds to spill over with hatred towards the democratic nominee, Obama is taking the high road.

Barack Obama’s attacks on Americans who support John McCain reveal far more about him than they do about John McCain. It is clear that Barack Obama just doesn’t understand regular people and the issues they care about. He dismisses hardworking middle class Americans as clinging to guns and religion, while at the same time attacking average Americans at McCain rallies who are angry at Washington, Wall Street and the status quo.

Even worse, he attacks anyone who dares to question his readiness to serve as their commander in chief in chief. Raising legitimate questions about record, character and judgment are a vital part of the Democratic process, and Barack Obama’s effort to silence and shame those who seek answers should make everyone wonder exactly what he is hiding.

pathetic response

I think that McCain is making a very bad strategic decision with going so negative in regards to a tenuous relationship.  He is losing very well respected Republicans

McCain, just in case you need a reminder.
Here is the difference between a "tactic" and "strategy".

A tactic is a conceptual action used by a military unit of no larger than a division to implement a specific mission and achieve a specific objective, or to advance toward a specific goal. A tactic is implemented as one or more tasks.

A Strategy is a long term plan of action designed to achieve a particular goal, most often "winning." Strategy is differentiated from tactics or immediate actions with resources at hand by its nature of being extensively premeditated, and often practically rehearsed. Strategies are used to make the problem easier to understand and solve.

McCain, you sir are nothing but a sorry tactic in a time when the country needs a leader a good strategy.

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.
