Here’s the transcript of Presidential candidate John McCain’s new political ad for television. It will be released this week. He paints Obama as someone who talks about change and offers no real solutions. However, McCain paints himself as the ultimate war hero. He says he’s a man who sacrificed and fought for his country on the battlefield and in the Senate. What do you think of the message he’s sending?
it was a time of uncertainty, hope and change. the “summer of love.”
half a world away, another kind of love — of country.
john mccain: shot down. bayoneted. tortured.
offered early release, he said, “no.” he’d sworn an oath.
home, he turned to public service.
his philosophy: before party, polls and self … america.
a maverick, john mccain tackled campaign reform, military reform, spending reform.
he took on presidents, partisans and popular opinion.
he believes our world is dangerous, our economy in shambles.
john mccain doesn’t always tell us what we “hope” to hear.
beautiful words cannot make our lives better.
but a man who has always put his country and her people before self, before politics can.
don’t “hope” for a better life. vote for one.
john mccain: i’m john mccain and i approved this message.
