TPM: Obama Campaign Launches Ad Hitting McCain's Lies As "Dishonorable" (with video)

TPM, with video(00:30):
We've been waiting for it, and here it is: The Obama campaign launches its first ad hitting McCain for his lying and his mendacious adver-sleazements and slamming his campaign as "disgraceful" and "dishonorable":

The ad will air on national cable and in key battleground states. Though the ad describes McCain's campaign -- not McCain himself -- as "dishonorable," the response, without question, will be POW POW POW.
Howie P.S.: The ad is part of a new thrust by the Obama campaign as described in this video (02:11) from today's online NY Times: "The Obama Campaign Restarts." Obama talked about the problems on Wall Street this morning ("Obama On Merrill Lynch, Lehman Brothers And Wall Street Crisis"):
"The challenges facing our financial system today are more evidence that too many folks in Washington and on Wall Street weren't minding the store," Obama said in a statement. "Eight years of policies that have shredded consumer protections, loosened oversight and regulation, and encouraged outsized bonuses to CEOs while ignoring middle-class Americans have brought us to the most serious financial crisis since the Great Depression."

"I certainly don't fault Sen. McCain for these problems," Obama said, "but I do fault the economic philosophy he subscribes to."
