At a speech yesterday in Northern Las Vegas, Barack Obama went after John McCain for throwing a private fundraiser with his good buddy and mentor, George W. Bush. This is the fundraiser, remember, that the McCain team had moved from the Phoenix Convention Center -- when it wasn't selling enough tickets -- to a private location where journalists would be barred from snapping photographs with which to later embarrass John McCain.
"I just had the privilege of visiting with Felicitas Rosel and Francisco Cano at their home here in Las Vegas.
Today, John McCain is having a different kind of meeting. He's holding a fundraiser with George Bush behind closed doors in Arizona. No cameras. No reporters. And we all know why. Senator McCain doesn't want to be seen, hat-in-hand, with the President whose failed policies he promises to continue for another four years."
