RNC: Should "Untested" Obama Be In Charge If Storm Gets Worse?

The Republican National Committee has released a new ad, "Storm," set to "run in major markets in target states."

"We choose Presidents to lead us through uncertain times," an announcer says as stormy seas are shown onscreen. "Rely on their background and experience to guide us. Some now say this storm cannot get worse. Our nation is so off course that Barack Obama's quick rise to power and inexperience should not matter."

He concludes: "But what if the storm does get worse? With someone who's untested at the helm."

The words "Barack Obama. Untested." then appear onscreen.

UPDATE: Obama-Biden spokesman Hari Sevugan responds: "In case the McCain campaign hasn't noticed, the financial storm has already hit, and John McCain responded by erratically steering his ship in about five different directions."
