Press Release - Statement By McCain Campaign On Barack Obama's Old-Style Political Attacks
ARLINGTON, VA -- John McCain 2008 spokesman Tucker Bounds today issued the following statement on Barack Obama's old-style political attacks today:
"Senator Obama's blatant mischaracterizations aren't the new politics he's promised America, they're the old attack and smear tactics that Americans are tired of.
"Barack Obama's diagnosis for our housing market is clearly that Barack Obama knows best -- raise taxes on hardworking Americans and give government a prescription to spend.
"John McCain has called for an immediate and balanced approach to provide transparency and accountability in an effort to help homeowners who are hurting, while Barack Obama has made a $10 billion election-year promise that is sure to raise taxes and handcuff an already struggling economy."
