It's the Democrats turn. A flock of robocalls supporting Barack Obama has been unleashed in Wisconsin. The Dems are using the robocall to attack a recent Republican robocall campaign.
The pro-Obama call is from a woman who claims to have been a John McCain supporter until she was turned off by the Arizona Senator's "dishonorable campaign." The call also accuses McCain of using George W. Bush's "divisive tactics" and planning to continue many of the President's policies.
State Republican Party spokeswoman Kirsten Kukowski calls it" ironic" that the Democrats bash the pro-McCain robocall which questioned Obama's relationship with Bill Ayers, yet the pro-Obama call "falsely" links McCain to George W Bush. Kukowski stands by their robocall as factual regarding Ayers, a former domestic terrorist turned academic.
The pro-Obama call is sponsored the Campaign for Change, a project of the state Democratic Party. A call to them by WRN for comment went unreturned.
"Hi, this is Jeri Watermolen, calling for the Campaign for Change. Ilive in Green Bay and, like you, I've been getting sleazy phone callsand mail from John McCain and his supporters viciously — and falsely– attacking Barack Obama.
I used to support John McCain because he honorably served ourcountry — but this year he's running a dishonorable campaign. We knowMcCain will continue many of Bush's policies, and now he's using GeorgeBush's divisive tactics. In fact, he hired the Bush strategists whoseattacks even McCain once called hateful.
Barack Obama will turn the page on these negative politics and standup for the middle class. That's the change we need, and it's why I havechanged my mind about John McCain. Join me in voting for Barack Obama.
