Chuck Schumer wants Barack Obama to fight back hard against the McCain campaign’s attacks:
“I thought the Britney Spears commercial was powerful,” Schumer said, referring to McCain’s television ad casting Obama as a vapid “celebrity.”
“They’re trying to say, ‘He’s not one of us,'” Schumer said.
“I would answer back hard. What do you mean he’s not one of us? It’s John McCain who wears $500 shoes, has six houses, and comes from one of the richest families in his state,” Schumer said.
However, Chuckie, Obama needn’t worry about striking back. His surrogates are more than willing to carry that water for him, even if they have to imply that McCain has cooties, neener-neener, to do it.
