Questioning John McCain's patriotism

Barack Obama once again talking "issues".

I suppose he thinks that these kinds of statements will endear him to the American people:

A pretty scathing charge from Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., this morning as he
spoke to the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers and
assailed Sen. John McCain's, R-Ariz., position on free trade.

"Just ask the machinists in Pennsylvania who build Harley-Davidsons,"
Obama said of McCain's record. "Because John McCain didn’t just oppose the
requirement that the government buy American-made motorcycles, he called Buy
American provisions 'disgraceful.' Just ask the workers across this country who
have seen their jobs outsourced. The very companies that shipped their
jobs overseas have been rewarded with billions of dollars in tax breaks that
John McCain supports and plans to continue.

"So, when American workers hear John McCain talking about putting
'Country First,'" Obama said, "it’s fair to ask –- which country?"

Um ... isn't that pretty much the dictionary definition of questioning
someone's patriotism?


Seriously, does Barack Obama believe that questioning McCain's patriotism and loyalty to his own county is going to win him favors???
