New McCain Ad Hits Obama Again

The war over which candidate is out of touch with the common man continues.

A day after Barack Obama's campaign put out an ad knocking John McCain for not knowing how many houses he owns, the McCain campaign has released a new spot, "Higher," that starts with an announcer saying this of Obama: "Celebrities don't have to worry about family budgets, but we sure do."

The spot hits many of the anti-Obama notes that have become familiar in McCain spots: Celebrity, raising taxes, and preparedness to lead.

We're paying more for food and gas, making it harder to save for college, retirement," the announcer continues. "Obama's solution? Higher taxes called 'a recipe for economic disaster.' He's ready to raise your taxes, but not ready to lead."
