Attack Ads Slam Obama Ahead of Democratic Convention!

Presidential mudslinging has gone full bore today, with the release of two new ad buys slamming Barack Obama.

The first, embedded here at top, is from the
American Issues Project, which has launched a 2.8 million TV campaign attacking Obama's deep ties to former Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers. The second, embedded below, is John McCain's new spot hitting Obama for enlisting convicted Chicago land racketeer Tony Rezko to purchase his million-dollar mansion.

The McCain campaign is responding the Obama camp's attacks on McCain's comment that he "wasn't sure about how many houses he and his wife own."

The intensity of the attacks indicates the high-stakes nature of the current political battle. While Obama hopes to portray McCain as a hopeless elitist out of touch with average families, GOP forces seek to build on the summer's increasing evidence of Barack Obama's radicalism.
