Obama Hits McCain-Bush Alliance Hard in Vegas Speech

The Illinois Senator repeatedly ties his Republican rival to the President in his North Las Vegas address.

Starts off by saying: “He’s holding a fundraiser with George Bush behind closed doors in Arizona. No cameras. No reporters. And we all know why. Senator McCain doesn’t want to be seen, hat-in-hand, with the President whose failed policies he promises to continue for another four years.”

Also attacks McCain on his tax proposals, lobbyist ties and the housing crisis, saying “his plan amounts to little more than borrowing bad ideas from George Bush.”
