Obama and McCain launch competing attack ads

Obama's "Low Road" Ad

Obama ad launched two days ago over 267,977 views on 107 blog posts with 698 comments

McCain's "The One" Ad 

McCain ad launched today with 56,763 views on 178 blog posts and over 3,284 comments

The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government organizations. The NDP argues that in addition to private sponsors, the government should immediately accept 10,000 Syrian refugees. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau said the target should be 25,000 government-sponsored refugees, which he estimates would cost Ottawa $100-million.In other words the Harper government that banters around the 10,000 plus refugee number has brought in 622 refugees or about 170 families.

The other 2,352 so called refugees that Harper has allowed to emigrate to Canada consist of wealthy Syrian Christians who paid their own way in, hightailing …
