From the NY Times Editorial Board:
Senator John McCain’s truth-deficient campaign hit another low last Friday with a fraudulent new ad, this time about immigration.
The ad, in Spanish, accuses Senator Barack Obama and his Congressional allies of killing immigration reform.
It’s a gross distortion.
Here is an English translation:
Announcer: Obama and his Congressional allies say they are on the side of immigrants. But are they?
The press reports that their efforts were “poison pills” that made immigration reform fail.
No guest worker program.
No path to citizenship.
No secure borders.
Is that being on our side?
Obama and his Congressional allies ready to block immigration reform, but not ready to lead.
John McCain: I’m John McCain and I approve this message.
Block immigration reform? The Democrats?
Mr. Obama opposing a path to citizenship?
Welcome to the night-is-day, down-is-up, world of the McCain campaign.
The Times then goes on to give a detailed history of the Senate immigration bill.
