For whatever it's worth, I think Obama's plan is a direct response to McCain already doing this in blue states. McCain has been airing television
ads here in PA for the last two weeks. I thought it was very odd that McCain would be airing ads here in June.
I think McCain has a much better chance of going after Obama in blue collar Democratic states than Obama has in red states. Other than his rhetoric,
Obama really offers nothing of substance to those inclined to vote Republican. And unlike conservative Republicans, McCain offers moderate Democrats
a legitimate alternative to the far-left leaning Obama.
Remember, all money is good for is buying ad time. No amount of ad time is going to convince a conservative to vote for Obama. Do you really think
any Obama ad is going to convince a Republican to vote for higher taxes, more government control of health care, liberal Supreme Court judges,
surrendering in Iraq, more taxes to pay to reduce poverty in Africa, or higher taxes to reduce global warming? Not likely.
Obama would be better served by spending every day in Ohio and spending every last dollar he has to win Ohio.
