John McCain's presidential campaign released a televised ad comparing Barack Obama to Paris Hilton and Britney Spears. The presidential election ad suggests that the democratic candidate is little more than a celebrity known for childish antics like Spears and Hilton. Barack Obama is one of the biggest and most widely known celebrities in the world, but McCain's campaign ad questions whether he is truly capable and ready to lead a country. John McCcain's campaign has focused much of their attention at bashing Barack Obama and trying to downsize his abilities as a leader, especially when it comes to the government. Barack Obama retorted that McCain has nothing positive to say about him, and people should turn their focus to what John McCain stands up for, rather than what he stands against.

    What is John McCain's big selling point? He'll keep us in the war, keep tax cuts for the rich and die in office? Of course he's desperate - since rolling over on his whole "Maverick" act, he's done nothing but pander to a Christian right that doesn't want him while alienating the rest of us who are interested in intelligent dialog between candidates that doesn't involve smear tactics.

    Yes of course he's desperate, he always has been. That old man, in the military academy he attended was in the bottom 5% of his graduating class. No exaggeration.

    Yes, John McCain has actually succeeded through negative campaigning in profiling Barack Obama in a negative way. It's very amazing that Americans would rather hear the negative rather than the positive. America believes the nastier and dirtier the better. Now that Barack Obams is shooting back they will label him as running a negative campaign and not as a fighter against the negativity that is causing drops in his numbers, because America a believes untruths and does not honor honesty.

    Duh! John McCain IS deperate & has been since he ran against George W. Bush in the Republican primaries 8 years ago. Back then the Republican party had no problem pointing out that McCain is Insane because he was tortured in POW camps and thus, is unfit to lead as President. Those same whack jobs are pushing McCain to lead today.
    McCain couldn't run again as Senator in Arizona because he was so bad and so disliked by the people of Arizona, even the Republicans. He was so disliked that he couldn't raise the money to run for his office again... so he quit. He's a quiter, remember that. So-just when his career is over and he should go crawl in a hole and let his alzheimer's finish him off... He stepps up to the plate to run for President with the rest of the loosers that the GOP paraded around infront of us. -I still can't believe, of all the smart, saavy, young, hip, intelligent republicans in America... that the best the GOP could provide for US to vote on was July-Annie, a crappy actor from a crime show, and Insane McCain ready to kick the bucket, just as soon as he scoots his walker closer to it... WTF?!? Come'on GOP do a better GD'ed job than that! - okay- As I said, McCain is desperate and he and his party is doing everything they can to take Obama's steam away. But, the kid is a f...'''

    McCain has to pay people to show up to see him...
    McCain will be yet another embarassment to America (along with Duh'r W Bush, and "I fergit" Reagan) if he stays in the spot light. -McCain, time to grab your walker and go fer a walk in the park... not too fast we don't want your heart to pop! & Not too long in the sun!

    McCain is definately getting desperate in his attempt to claim the election, but even though his comparison is very extreme it is still fairly accurate(even if aimed at McCain himself). If either of the remaining candidates want to have a significant lead over the other, they will have to seriously step up their game, and McCain needs to stop bashing Obama's ideas and make some decent ones of his own.

    With Macain's age and the so called experience, is this what is made up of? Others are thinking how to create high speed rail system, electric vehicles, clean environment and Old rugger is here comparing Obama to a celebraty. I KEEP SAYING IT , MACAIN IS EMPTY UP STAIRS (BRAIN).
    He is jealous and threatened by Obama. Of course, his time has passed. He needs to give way to the younger people to rule this country. Listen to Keith Obermen's show at 8 - 9 pm and you will see how Macain is been analysed and you will see that Macain is not intelligent at all. SIMPLE ENGLISH (PROPER ENGLISH) is difficult for him to construct let more knowing the latest technology in the market. You who even give macain hope of becoming the President of this country should all be exiled because America deserves better than J. Macain.

    Wise men do wise things. This is to show you how empty Macain is. Dont you see how Lieberman follows Macain like chickens because he is there to correct his statements and give him some reharsals before he goes out to those his 50 audiences in his so called TOWN HALL meetings. If you elect Macain I am 100% sure that others will be rulling this country while Macain would be just a figure head.

    Has Macain ever written his own speech? NEVER NEVER cos he cant. He needs to go back to school. People just decides that they will not see someone who is different from them to be the President of America, that is the only reason why they are following Macain but I am strongly positive that Macain and his drug addicted and acoholic wife will not go to the white house PERIOD

    That was the best campaign ad so far. I needed a break from all the other hype that is going on. And yes it is true. You can see Obama strut a little harder and faster as he greets his adoring public. Who goes and struts the cat walk for the Germans and all the rest of the non voting in American politics in the world. He's turning into John Edwards. Another politician smitten with himself.

    Hey when you got it, you got it. And just like Jesse Jackson, Mr McCain when you time has come and gone, just go with it. You make yourself look bad by trying to hold on to something that has no grip, your time has passed, move on. The mud slinging only proves that you ain't got nottin else.

    Your only digracing Paris Hilton whose parents even donated their money to Macain. That is to show you that Macain can do anything to win. He needs to do his investigation first before bringing out false ads to gullible Americans. You know what Paris Hilton is a STAR, she has made her money and does not need anything from Macain. If Macain looses the election (100% sure if will loose), all those people campagining for him, following him, will go out to look for jobs. Sending applications to different offices in the country whereas Paris Hilton will continue to live her life as a STAR
