McCain Hits an Obama Nerve

The McCain campaign really hit an Obama nerve today. After Obama announced a few Republican endorsements in a national conference call, the RNC sent out a half-hearted attack on Obama’s bipartisan credentials, (which I discussed here.) The Obama campaign shot back with one of the longest rebuttals it has ever issued to a GOP attack — a 7,000-word research file titled "Response To RNC Attack on Obama’s Bipartisan Record." The document draws on media accounts and legislative votes to present Obama as a constant courter of Republican support and common-sense solutions. Here are some representative headlines — I’ve cut the roll call votes and glowing newspaper quotes:

Obama And [Sen. Richard] Lugar Passed Law Boosting U.S. Efforts To Keep WMDs And Other Dangerous

Weapons Out Of The Hands Of Terrorists. Lugar Said He Was Enthused And Encouraged By “Senator

Obama’s Commitment To Adding His Strong Voice And Creativity To The Proliferation Challenge."

Obama and [Sen. Tom] Coburn Passed A Bill Creating A “Google-like” Database For The Public To Search Details About Federal Funding Awards.

Obama Passed Law to Promote Relief, Security, and Democracy in the Democratic Republic of the Congo; Bill Was Cosponsored By [Conservative Senators] Brownback, Inhofe, And DeWine.

Obama And [Sen. Orrin] Hatch Passed Legislation To Protect Individuals’ Rights To Continue Donating To Charities And Religious Organizations During Bankruptcy.

Obama Worked With Republicans To Pass Legislation, Which Became Law, Improving And Increasing Services For Homeless Veterans.

There’s also a sprawling section on bipartisanship back in Illinois, which I’m just cutting down to this factoid:

Obama Passed 161 Bills, 151 Of Which Became Law, In Six Years As A Member Of The Minority Party In The Illinois State Senate.

Obama aides have obviously been eager to brandish this bipartisan history. At a minimum, it’s more instructive about Obama’s legislating style than a few stray endorsements from liberal Republicans.
