Obama Attack Ad: Playing the Senior Moment Card?

The latest Obama attack ad on McCain gets into the fact that McCain’s out of touch with the average American. But the real message is that McCain is an old guy who can’t remember who he is.

I’m Barack Obama and I approve this message.

Obama as a friend to seniors. This is the disclaimer before the ad begins to slam McCain for being old and senile.

Call it country club economics

McCain is shown riding a golf cart with Bush I. Very similar to those electric carts a lot of seniors have to ride around in.

How many houses does he own? John McCain says he can’t even remember anymore.

McCain is shown in slow motion, making him LOOK slow. The line: John McCain says he can’t even remember anymore, says everything this ad is trying to project. That McCain’s mind is gone.

Well, it’s seven

No wonder McCain just said: “The fundamentals of our economy are strong” and “Anyone making less than five million dollars a year is middle class”

McCain is shown with Bush II. He’s in slow motion, making him look mentally out of it, like someone who has had a stroke. Bush almost looks concerned for him.

Maybe McCain thinks this economy is working… for folks like him.

Again, McCain is shown with Bush I in their electric “wheelchair”.

But how are things going… for you

These are great ads by the Obama campaign. They’re clever as hell. It’s about time democrats give the GOP a taste of their own medicine, and fight fire with fire.
