Man in the McCain Mask

July 31st, 2008 by flanews

Political antics by Democrats and Republicans are in full swing on the eve of visits by Senator John McCain and Senator Barack Obama. Today a guy wearing a John McCain mask visited the Republican Party of Florida in Tallahassee. The group Progress Florida named the McCain caricature Millionaire McCain. Damien Filer, A spokesman, for the group said the stunt was meant to draw attention to claims that McCain is out of tough with middle class families.

We wanted to make the point here in the states capital, its the Republican Party here thats raising funds for John McCains campaign in Florida and supporting his efforts, and unfortunately, the fact of the matter is his efforts, his campaign, his policies are out of touch with working families in Florida, said Filer.

The Republican Party of Florida set up its own stunt. While in Missouri this week, Senator Obama said Americans could cut down on gas costs by keeping their tires aired up. The state Republican Party put tire gauges in a bucket and posted signs calling Obamas idea, hot air.
