John McCain Ads In Berlin and Paris- In America

While Barack Obama is in Berlin giving his political rallies, John McCain is focusing on American voters, those that can actually cast a ballot and Top of The Ticket shows the new McCain campaign ad that will be airing in Berlin......not Germany, but Berlin, Pennsylvania, Berlin, Wisconsin and Berlin, New Hampshire.

The text:

"There are few votes as important as funding our men and women in uniform.

But when our military needed necessary resources, Barack Obama failed to stand up.

Obama said that nobody wanted to play chicken with our troops on the ground.

But when it came time to act, he voted against critical resources: no to individual body armor, no to helicopters, no to ammunition, no to aircraft.

The bill Obama opposed even had funding for veterans’ medical facilities and rehabilitation programs.

And why did he say no?

Obama chose Washington politics over the needs of our military.

And Senator McCain?

As a veteran and someone who has always put the public interest first, John McCain stood by our troops.

If Obama can’t rise above politics to support our soldiers in a time of war, then how can he claim to have the strength to change the way Washington works?

John McCain is ready to lead. Barack Obama is not.

I'm John McCain and I approved this message."

This ad will also be running in Paris.... nope, not France, they cannot vote in the elections, but in Paris, Michigan, Missouri and Maine.

McCain is using the time that Obama is away, making his misstatements in Israel and playing for the crowds in Berlin, to focus on the U.S. voters, the ones that can actually help him win the election.

This ad comes at a time when 51 percent of American voters, a majority, believe we are winning the war on terror and a plurality of Americans, for the first time since 2004, believe that Iraq will continue to improve over the next 6 months.

Unless of course the enemy believes that someone will step up into the presidency and hand all those gains away.

Obama voted against funding our troops in the field, that is the message and it is a powerful one.
