You Can Run But You Can’t Hide!
A new Crossroads ad “Obama-Claire” links Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill to Barack Obama’s failed record.
That moderate schtick ain’t gonna work this time, Claire… Not after Obamacare and the Stimulus.
The Hill reported:
The GOP super-PAC Crossroads GPS is up with another big ad buy against Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), slamming her for voting for President Obama’s healthcare law.

McCaskill is in a tough position — she closely tied herself to President Obama during the 2008 election, and while a new poll shows Obama tied with Mitt Romney in Missouri, few expect him to win there.
The more voters group the two together, the harder it will be for her to get the few points’ separation she’ll need to win reelection if Obama loses the state.
Crossroads is spending a half-million dollars on the ad, which slams McCaskill for voting with Obama “90 percent of the time.” It’s the latest in their air war against McCaskill, their top target so far this election.
“‘ObamaCare’? More like ‘Obama-Claire.’ Because Sen. Claire McCaskill has voted with President Obama more than 90 percent of the time, including ObamaCare, cutting half a trillion [dollars] in Medicare spending, cuts that could slash benefits for some Medicare enrollees, and a board of unelected bureaucrats with the power to restrict seniors’ access to medical care,” the ad’s narrator says. “Obama-Claire brought us ObamaCare, and that’s bad medicine for Medicare.”
