Barack Obama’s ad targeting Latinos stretches the guilt-by-association trick a bit:
Titled, “Two Faces” the ad’s logic is basically this:
John McCain is a Republican
Rush Limbaugh is a Republican
Rush Limbaugh hates immigrants
Therefore: John McCain hates immigrants.
For one, I will never forget the courage John McCain showed in standing up to the right-wing Republican base to sponsor comprehensive immigration reform, with liberal lion Ted Kennedy, no less!
Also, the “two faces” in the ad, were the two high profile Republicans who were in favor of immigration reform, and tried to push it through Congress.
Obama can do better.
