The ads begging to answer Obama’s attack on wealth, or Much Ado About Something

The brouhaha over McCain not knowing how many houses “his wife” owns should be the nail in the coffin for The One if McCain or other supporters make the correct reaction ads. Here are some suggestions:

First, a counter to the on-the-street video running on youtube that questions “average” people how many houses they own. The highest number is two. Probably not all that uncommon. The counter to this is quite simple:   Man-on-the-street Question: “How many houses would you like to own? If you could own more than one, would you? Would you like to be able to buy a house for each of your children? Is it wrong to own more than one house?      The Questions would reveal that while not everyone might want a lot of houses, most would think it’s not necessarily a bad thing.
The logical answer to the original Obama attack ad on McCain homes is to highlight Obama’s supporters and pals who own multiple houses with tag lines to identify their Obama connection. Include in the ad Kerry’s homes and total worth, Kennedy’s, Pelosi, etc. Then close with Obama’s first public counter, Obama saying he “owned one home” and show a long-shot view of his multi-million dollar home, with its price tag…then close with Obama’s comment, “millions of home-owners struggling to make their mortgage payments” with a mention the $200,000 discount on the adjacent property with Rezko…then close with: “And Obama says he is connected with the average American?

That viewpoint could be supported by another on-the-street ad, asking the average American the value of their home…then close with shot of Obama’s mansion with its value. Closing tag, “Not your average American home, is it?’ A variation could include asking about square feet (homeowners really understand the value of more space).

Another ad could simply include all the Dems that ran for President or are influental, the price tags on their home or their personal wealth…and finish with, “Suddenly the Democrats have a problem with having too much money…”
Perhaps another ad could include the original reporter’s question laid over Obama “One worth $2 million” – then Bayh, then Kerry, then Kennedy.

Can’t wait to see these or other inventive ads produced!

  1. The issue with McCain’s houses is that the McCain campaign has been trying to portray Obama as an elitist because he “eats arugula” and “vacations in Hawaii” but the fact of the matter is McCain is far more of an elitist than Obama ever could be. Barack used the money he made off his first book to pay off his student loans. Paying off student loans is something a lot of middle class Americans can relate to. McCain spends more on hired help for his homes every year than the average person spends on a home. McCain is out of touch with the American people and that is becoming more and more apparent by the day. As for Rezko, it is a little strange and I’m sure Obama regrets it, but I don’t think McCain should start talking about scandals, remember the Keating Five? John McCain was involved in a scandal that many retired people lost their life savings in, Obama saved some money on a piece of property. I think the lesson for McCain here is people who live in glass houses (no matter how many of them they own) shouldn’t throw stones, unless of course they were a POW then they can use that as a “get out of jail free” card for anything.

  2. J.P.

    I do remember the Keating 5. While McCain was cleared I am sure Obama will attack on that front in September, maybe October.

    Obama went on the attack-ad track first. McCain is just responding. Drawing their differences in ads that distort the truth (at best) goes back to the first real presidential campaign (Adams vs. Jefferson). The pols can talk all they want about change, or being different, but no one follows through.

    But back to the point: This is about Mrs. McCain, and not really John. Personally, I can’t identify with a professional student and lazy lawyer embroiled in typical Chi-town politics or professional politicians like McCain. Neither has done a damn thing in their life, although McCain does have his military career. Still, that’s little more than another government job (I was Army six years). In McCain’s case, as an officer, all he did was tell other people to do what he had been told to tell them (especially since he was a crappy pilot).

    I despise the character of both men, but one is socialist-lite while the other is outright flaming Marxist. I prefer to be dead before someone like him takes us down the Stalin Road.

    Obama, as you put it, did not “save money” on a little property: He engaged in illegal political influencing, basically took a bribe.

    And as for Ms. McCain vs. Ms. Obama, check this out:

    You left out one question to the man on the street;
    If you owned more than one house would you know how many you owned or would you need to ask someone?

    Personally I think Cindy McCain would have been a better candidate.

    Yes I’m sure Obama is going to turn the US into a Stalinist state. I can hardly wait for CNN to televise the first pogrom.

  4. rhutch,

    Maybe so, both wives being better than their hubbys since both have done real work (edge, Ms. McCain).

    If you haven’t noticed, CNN has been running pogroms since the Clinton. Now joined by MSNBC, the two competing for most favored-status after the “change” that is coming.
