Obama Needles McCain on Lobbyists, Foreign Policy

The Illinois Senator points to comments made to the media this week by McCain adviser Charlie Black commenting on their new conflict-of-interest policy during his Tampa rally:

“John McCain then would be pretty disappointed with John McCain now, because he hired some of the biggest lobbyists in Washington to run his campaign. And when he was called on it, his top lobbyists actually had the nerve to say, ‘The American people won’t care about this.’”

Obama also keeps the pressure on foreign policy, saying McCain has been spending the last week “describing who he won’t talk to.”

McCain camp responds: “Despite his own campaign’s ties to lobbyists, nothing comes between Barack Obama and a partisan political attack.”
