Barack Obama was trying to say that John McCain is trying to scare voters from electing Obama and went on to say "You know, he doesn't look like all of those other presidents on the dollar bills."
John McCain's campaign cried foul and said that Obama is playing the race card and Obama's campaign replied "Barack Obama in no way believes that the McCain campaign is using race as an issue, but he does believe they're using the same old low-road politics to distract voters from the real issues in this campaign."
What did Barack Obama think when he said he doesn't look like the men on the money? Any rational person knows exactly what he meant. He said what he meant and he meant what he said. Then when McCain responds he accuses McCain of dirty politics. I guess Obama expects that even his opponents are supposed to fawn all over him in the manner of the main stream media.
