The false ads against Obama also angered some current and former executives of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. They were so incensed they came forward to discuss Rick Davis's role in helping Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac beat back regulatory challenges. “The value that he brought to the relationship was the closeness to Senator McCain and the possibility that Senator McCain was going to run for president again,” said Robert McCarson, a former spokesman for Fannie Mae.
McCain's campaign tactics have reached the dregs of the gutter. The truth, and his long-standing position on key issues, have become irrelevant as the campaign desperately attempts to grab votes however they can.
