It's about time Obama starts exposing the Real McCain by drawing factual contrasts.

"Economics by John McCain. Support George Bush 95 percent of the time. Keep spending $10 billion a month for the war in Iraq, while the Iraqis sell oil for record prices, giving Iraq a $79 billion oil surplus and hurting our economy. [...] Barack Obama: The Middle Class First.

As we've seen so far, facts and context don't seem to enter the equation on the other side, as is evidenced by this "response" from McCain spokesman Tucker Bounds: (via HuffPo)

"In the Senate, Barack Obama has voted in lockstep with President George W. Bush nearly half the time, including the Bush-Cheney Energy bill which gave close to 3 billion dollars in new giveaways to Big Oil - a terrible policy that John McCain opposed. The truth is Barack Obama's plan is a job killing machine that ignores the struggling economy and raises taxes on family savings, social security and small businesses."
