YouTube a PR dream for Obama – a nightmare for John McCain

In PR land  if there was  to be a high noon between Obama and McCain the quickest shot would be Barack  Obama.  His public relations and marketing team is a class apart and very very quick on the draw.

Take as an example the the McCain interview with Politico in Las Cruces, N.M which is a nightmare  public relations moment for John McCain.   When asked how many houses he owned John McCain said   “I think — I’ll have my staff get to you”

Boom he was gone.

The correct answer is he owns at  least four houses , located in Arizona, California and Virginia and  Newsweek has  estimated with condo; etc he owns at least seven properties.

Now news is starting to surface that about the spending habits of the McCain’s.  Apparently (“Cindy McCain charged as much as $500,000 in a single month on one American Express card and $250,000 on another”)

All  this against the backdrop that apparently McCain’s passion is “wasteful spending “.

As a Canadian with little understanding of American politics how can someone oversee the housing crisis when he doesn’t have any day-to-day concerns about his own mortgage? Or mortgages, as the case may be? How can this person set tax rates for the middle class? All of that is implied, I suppose…

Go figure…

Brothers and sisters in PR … make sure you .. very  quickly – YouTube:

This was posted in less than 2 hrs  after the story broke. Obama’s  team is fast.

Barack Obama’s team gets it.
