Ten days ago the Obama campaign launched a new TV ad “Dignity” in 19 states. It talked about how he had pushed for welfare-to-work laws (despite the fact that he opposed the 1996 welfare reform law), worked his way through college, and wants to tax companies that move jobs abroad. It is a move-to-the-center ad, a key piece of his repositioning.
And, except for a four state Republican Party ad buy attacking the Democrats on energy, the McCain campaign has yet to answer. With Obama flip flopping on issues from gun control to public financing to late term abortion to the fairness doctrine to merit pay for teachers, McCain needs to go on the air pronto to pin Obama’s ears back for his flip flops.
