When Karl Rove is saying your political ads have gone too far, you know you must be doing something dishonest.
The former Bush chief strategist, appearing on Fox News Sunday, said that John McCain had stretched the truth in his recent round of attacks against Barack Obama, in the process opening up the Arizonan to a round of effective counter-attacks.
"McCain has gone in his ads one step too far, and sort of attributing to Obama things that are, you know, beyond the 100-percent-truth test," said Rove. "Both campaigns ought to be careful about... there ought to be an adult who says: 'Do we really need to go that far in this ad? Don't we make our point and get broader acceptance and deny the opposition an opportunity to attack us if we don't include that one little last tweak in the ad?'"
The man credited with getting President Bush elected twice warned both presidential campaigns on Sunday that they are making a mistake by going on the attack in advertising that distorts the truth about Barack Obama and John McCain.
