Obama gets tough

His ads are now taking it to McCain. The NY Times calls these "attacks" and "negative." I'd call it common sense. When the Republican is talking publicly about how times are pretty good; when a top McCain supporter calls those who say otherwise whiners; when McCain himself is going unrelentingly negative, including by libeling his opponent as a traitor, it's past time to talk unflattering truths about the opposition.
