McCain Slams Obama on Campaign Financing Decision

John McCain just released a pointed video on his YouTube channel responding to Obama’s recent announcement that he’ll be declining public financing for his general election campaign. Using footage of Obama from speeches and interviews - including his well-known, Deval Patrick-inspired remark, “Don’t tell me words don’t matter” - the video condemns the Illinois Senator for going back on earlier promises to run a publicly financed campaign.

The video marks the first negative ad from the McCain camp since Obama became the Democratic Party’s presumptive presidential nominee earlier this month. If anyone needed reminding that the general election campaign is in full swing, this is as good an indication as any.
