David Plouffe on McCain's Ad Strategy

Avoiding the issues, erratically changing strategies every week, manufacturing faux controversies.

Why are John McCain and Sarah Palin afraid to engage on the issues? Why do they insist instead on dragging the campaign into the mud?

David Plouffe:

Update: The angry hate mongers have launched a new attack ad:

LA Times:

Conservative consultants Sal Russo and Joe Wierzbicki and former state Assemblyman Howard Kaloogian are the men behind the ad, which over 40 seconds or so rolls out a series of quick-hit attacks on Obama.

Contending that John McCain has not been aggressive enough, the trio have rented a bus that they intend to drive across the country with the goal of rallying voters against Obama in battleground states.

Wierzbicki estimated that they have raised $600,000 to $700,000 for their new political action committee, Our Country Deserves Better. But a Democratic source, who spoke under the condition of anonymity, said word in political circles is that so far the amount of money spent to air the ad may be as little as $6,000.

The PAC's fundraising numbers could not be verified from Federal Election Commission filings. The group won't have to file its initial disclosure until later this month.
