Obama's Prime-Time Gets A Negative Review

I didn't see it but, of course, my morning prowl of the usual right-wing blogosphere gave it a general thumbs down. Interestingly, though, the Associated Press wasn't entirely on board the Obama Express, either:
Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama was less than upfront in his half-hour commercial Wednesday night about the costs of his programs and the crushing budget pressures he would face in office.

Obama's assertion that "I've offered spending cuts above and beyond" the expense of his promises is accepted only by his partisans. His vow to save money by "eliminating programs that don't work" masks his failure throughout the campaign to specify what those programs are - beyond the withdrawal of troops from Iraq.
