McCain Abandons Promise to Run Respectful Campaign
On July 25, the question was:
If this is McCain's notion of a respectful campaign, what will we see if he decides to get nasty?
Now we have the answer.
The McCain campaign has now shifted virtually 100 percent of his national ad spending into negative ads attacking Obama, a detailed breakdown of his ad buys reveals. By contrast, the Obama campaign is devoting less than half of his spending on ads attacking McCain. More than half of its spending is going to a spot that doesn't once mention his foe.
John McCain has consistently breached his promise to run a respectful campaign. Now the promise has been abandoned. Going negative is all he has left.
