You have to wonder what McCain was thinking when he let his camp come out with these two ads (apologies for not getting the exact lipstick ad. The ad has since been pulled to prevent further backlash).
Or better yet, what John McCain was thinking when he went on The View and publicly stated his ads were not lies?
True, these may not be lies in the sense that they are indeed things Obama has said and supported, but the context in which both instances are framed is incorrect; which makes them misleading statements. Misleading statements are still lies, Mr. McCain even a wooden puppet knows that.
The American public is on to you. If you want to become a real president you should start by telling the truth.
