First Read (MSNBC). with audio:
Obama is fighting back against Clinton's radio attack in Pennsylvania, saying Clinton's answer to the state's economic problems are “misleading negative ads.” Barack Obama
Clinton's radio ad that started running yesterday attacks Obama on his claim that he doesn't take money from oil companies, because none of the candidates are allowed to take money directly from oil companies.
In a response radio ad going up today, Obama counterpunches, saying Clinton is playing "political games" while he is taking on the oil companies. Obama is "the only candidate who doesn't take a dime from oil company PACs or lobbyists. The only one," an announcer says in the ad. "The Federal Election Commission reports that Clinton's taken more from Big Oil and other PACs and lobbyists than any other candidate, Democrat or Republican."
Listen to the 60-second ad here.
Here's the script for "Fill":Across Pennsylvania, we're living the problems. An economy in shambles. Families struggling. Gas prices close to four dollars a gallon. What's Hillary Clinton's answer?
Misleading negative ads.
Here's the truth. While she's played political games, it's Barack Obama who's taken on the oil companies, demanding higher gas mileage standards and a larger investment in alternative energy. It's Obama who's worked to strip tax breaks from the oil giants as they roll up record profits. And he's the only candidate who doesn't take a dime from oil company PACs or lobbyists. The only one. The Federal Election Commission reports that Clinton's taken more from Big Oil and other PACs and lobbyists than any other candidate, Democrat or Republican.
The same old Washington politics isn't going to lift our economy or bring down gas prices. So if you've had your fill of that-- Vote for change we can believe in, Barack Obama for President.
