When the Prince of Darkness Karl Rove says you are going too far in your campaign and being dishonest, you know you have a problem.
In an interview with Fox News Sunday, Rove slams the McCain Campaign:
McCain has gone in some of his ads -- similarly gone one step too far, and sort of attributing to Obama things that are, you know, beyond the '100 percent truth' test. ...They ought to -- there ought to be an adult who says, 'Do we really need to go that far in this ad'?
I never thought these words would come out of my mouth, but I agree with Karl Rove. I think I just threw up in my mouth a little...
More - including the new hard-hitting Obama ad - after the jump.
The Obama Campaign released this scathing statement:
In case anyone was still wondering whether John McCain is running the sleaziest, most dishonest campaign in history, today Karl Rove -- the man who held the previous record -- said McCain's ads have gone too far
They continued to hit back hard with this latest ad called "Honor":
How far down into the sewer do you have to go to have Rove call you out on "going too far"? Even the man who has made a career out of spreading lies and divisive politics thinks the McCain campaign is too dirty? I guess that "straight-talk express" has truly derailed...
This nasty, fear-mongering campaign that the McCain camp has been running shows real character, or should I say lack thereof. The constant dishonesty in TV ads and the repetitive lies on the campaign trail (keep talking about that bridge to nowhere, Sarah...) show what kind of "mavericks" these two truly are.
The only thing McCain and Palin rebel against is the truth.
