New Ad: “McCain Drives Foreign Vehicles”
By Amanda Scott
DETROIT, MI (RUSHPRNEWS) 09/23/2008-â€“ In the wake of Newsweekâ€™s report that John McCain wasnâ€™t being honest with Michigan workers when he claimed in a recent Detroit TV interview that â€œI’ve bought American literally all my life, and I’m proud,â€ the Obama campaign is launching a new 30 second ad entitled â€œforeign vehicles.â€
The ad highlights not only the three foreign cars among McCainâ€™s fleet of 13 vehicles, but McCainâ€™s failure to support American auto manufacturers with loans to help them retool and build the next generation of fuel efficient vehicles. While McCain claims to support these loans, he has a record of opposing them and dismissed the idea last month as â€œpredicting failure on the part of the automakers.â€
Newsweek reported that, in addition to the foreign hybrid he recently tried to deny having purchased despite having bragged about the purchase just last year, McCainâ€™s garages in his 7 houses include 13 vehicles. The fleet includes a Lexus, a 2005 Volkswagen convertible, and a 2001 Honda sedan.
