You may remember Barney Smith, a midwesterner who was laid off by RCA some time ago, and he spoke at the Democratic National Convention in August. Today, the Obama camp released an ad about Barney Smith.
The concept ties McCain to tax breaks to companies which outsource jobs and will continue to do so if McCain is elected president. But the tag line is the most memorable: Obama will put Barney Smith before Smith Barney.
Mainstreet before Wall Street.
No doubt Barney Smith is this guy's real name, and he was vetted.
