In a switch, McCain to Obama: "Well done"

By JIM KUHNHENN, Associated Press Writer 2 hours, 26 minutes ago

DENVER - In a brief break from a fierce advertising war, Republican presidential candidate John McCain will air a one-evening-only ad with a simple message for Barack Obama: "Job well done."

ADVERTISEMENT

The ad will air before, during and after Obama's nomination acceptance speech on national cable television.

In the ad, McCain addresses Obama directly, congratulating him for becoming the Democratic Party's nominee. McCain also recognizes the symbolism of a black man accepting the nomination on the 45th anniversary of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech.

McCain says: "Senator Obama, this is truly a good day for America. Too often the achievements of our opponents go unnoticed. So I wanted to stop and say, congratulations. How perfect that your nomination would come on this historic day. Tomorrow, we'll be back at it. But tonight Senator, job well done."

While the ad represents a moment of comity, it also casts McCain as a generous and gracious rival on the final day of the Democratic National Convention where McCain was regularly portrayed in a negative light.

As McCain concedes, this won't last.

Both candidates have been running a series of ads criticizing each other, vastly outnumbering any positive ads about themselves. But this is the first positive ad of the election by one candidate about the other.

I am willing to bet that Obama will not return the favor when McCain finishes his convention next week. I am sick and tired of cow-towing to these lying Democrats who have dared to question McCains Judgement, when his Judgement on Iraq was totally correct. Why are we expected to be Bi-Parstian when they can be as Parstian as they wish..........It makes no sense !!!!

Have you not noticed how every major speaker at the DNC has gone out of their way to mention good things about McCain. Hillary, Bill, Kerry, Biden, and even Obama have paid compliments to John. And you have nothing good to say about that, huh? Just keep shoveling all that sh*t out there, because you're so crafty that no one will follow the scent trail back to the origin.

You must really enjoy living in a country where politicians are expected, even required, to smear their opponents as opposed to actually debating issues and trying to find the best solutions.
