McCain Camp: Obama Is Going Negative

Obama’s critique of the people yelling “Kill him!” and “Terrorist!” at McCain-Palin rallies is an attack on the good, god-fearing people of America, according to McCain campaign spokesman Brian Rogers:

“Barack Obama’s attacks on Americans who support John McCain reveal far more about him than they do about John McCain. It is clear that Barack Obama just doesn’t understand regular people and the issues they care about. He dismisses hardworking middle class Americans as clinging to guns and religion, while at the same time attacking average Americans at McCain rallies who are angry at Washington, Wall Street and the status quo.

“Even worse, he attacks anyone who dares to question his readiness to serve as their commander in chief in chief. Raising legitimate questions about record, character and judgment are a vital part of the Democratic process, and Barack Obama’s effort to silence and shame those who seek answers should make everyone wonder exactly what he is hiding.”

Here’s Tucker Bounds, another campaign flack, picking up the same talking points a short time ago on MSNBC:

Note at the very end where Bounds claims that the McCain camp’s latest TV ad about Ayers is really an ad about the economy. Really.
