The Obama campaign is launching a new 30-second TV ad today to respond to the McCain attack ad hitting Sen. Barack Obama D-Ill., for his relationship with William Ayers and former Commerce Secretary William Daley.

The Obama campaign says the ad -- "Lose" -- will air in "key states" starting today.


NARRATOR: John McCain admits if the election is about the economy, he’s going to lose.

(Photo of Obama....Graphic quoting the McCain campaign as quoted in the Daily News on October 5: "If we keep talking about the economy we’re going to lose.")

NARRATOR: Now as Americans lose their jobs and savings...

(Still photo of stockbrokers)

NARRATOR: ...McCain’s resorting to smears and false attacks.

NARRATOR: Barack Obama launched his first campaign here, not in anyone’s living room.

NARRATOR:  And Bill Daley? He was confirmed as Commerce Secretary and praised for his great work...

(Screen-grab of "McCain attack ad" featuring "Political Boss William Daley") none other than John McCain.

NARRATOR:  It’s clear...with no plan to fix our economy...smears are all John McCain has left.

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.
