and here it is!
The complete video.
Send it to everyone you know!!!!

WE BRING THE TRUTH!!!
Mike Allen from Politico :
Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) on Monday will launch a multimedia campaign to draw attention to the involvement of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in the “Keating Five” savings-and-loan scandal of 1989-91, which blemished McCain’s public image and set him on his course as a self-styled reformer.
Retaliating for what it calls McCain’s “guilt-by-association” tactics, the Obama campaign is e-mailing millions of supporters a link to a website, KeatingEconomics.com, which will have a 13-minute documentary on the scandal beginning at noon Eastern time on Monday. The overnight e-mails urge recipients to pass the link on to friends.
The Obama campaign, including its surrogates appearing on radio and television, will argue that the deregulatory fervor that caused massive, cascading savings-and-loan collapses in the late ’80s was pursued by McCain throughout his career, and helped cause the current credit crisis.
The whole video will be up at 12:00 PM.
Here is something to get you in the mood while you wait.

Traditional media picking it up :
This issue is the trifecta ( fourfecta? fivefecta?) for us, bringing together various of McCain’s most important weaknesses:
1) Financial meltdown due to lack of regulation
2) Political influence peddling business-as-usual-corruption, and
3) Lobbying influence.
While also :
1) Making the case a day before the debate ( get McCain mad)
2) Neutralize the Ayers b.s.
3) Take over the media cycle and the narrative
Rather than focus on bullshit associations, Obama is cranking up the pressure by making McCain defend his own associations.
Even better when they actually relate to a previous economic scandal.
Will it turn off independents?
Will the media do their job and air this A LOT?
How good is the Obama campaign?
