McCain also visits Berlin on Thursday....well, sorta...
Edited on Wed Jul-23-08 01:58 PM by NYCGirl
He's running RADIO ADS in Berlin, New Hampshire; Berlin, Pennsylvania; and Berlin, Wisconsin. Again, it'd be sad if it weren't so funny.

WASHINGTON (CNN) Barack Obama is not the only presidential candidate who will be front-and-center in Berlin this Thursday. Well, sort of.

In the latest effort to counter-program Obamas tour of Europe and the Middle East, the Republican National Committee will air radio ads promoting John McCains candidacy in three different Berlins: Berlin, New Hampshire; Berlin, Pennsylvania; and Berlin, Wisconsin.

Not the most expensive media markets for the RNC to buy time but certainly a clever way to gain some national press and perhaps gain some buzz in these three battleground states, while Obama delivers what is expected to be one of the biggest speeches of this campaign cycle in the European capital.

(An early look at the copy of the RNC ad after the jump)


Title: Obama Chooses Washington Over Our Military (60 seconds)

VO: There are few votes as important as funding our men and women in uniform.
VO: But when our military needed necessary resources, Barack Obama failed to stand up.
VO: Obama said that nobody wanted to play chicken with our troops on the ground.
VO: But when it came time to act, he voted against critical resources: no to individual body armor, no to helicopters, no to ammunition, no to aircraft.
VO: The bill Obama opposed even had funding for veterans medical facilities and rehabilitation programs.
VO: And why did he say no?
VO: Obama chose Washington politics over the needs of our military.
VO: And Senator McCain?
VO: As a veteran and someone who has always put the public interest first, John McCain stood by our troops.
VO: If Obama cant rise above politics to support our soldiers in a time of war, then how can he claim to have the strength to change the way Washington works?
VO: John McCain is ready to lead. Barack Obama is not.

3. oh my god...the RNC is ridiculous!
"clever".... It makes me think of all of the repukes on tv who were making fun of the Unity, NH thing. At least that had a purpose for the party...this just shows how obsessed they are with Obama's trip!
