McCain says Obama will 'say anything' to win

This is getting more and more absurd.  Yesterday, McCain (who voted with Bush 90% of the time!) accused Obama of being too similar to Bush, and today he's accusing Obama of being willing to "say anything to get elected" -- this from the guy who actually IS saying anything to get elected!

Republican John McCain on Thursday spiced up a cross-state bus tour aimed at keeping vote-rich Florida from swinging to the Democrats by accusing rival Barack Obama of saying "anything to get elected."

McCain complained that the Democratic nominee had added a work requirement to his proposal to grant a 10 percent universal mortgage credit. A top Obama aide said the campaign made the change two weeks ago to avoid charges the proposal provided "welfare" to the unemployed.

"Thirteen days to go, and he changed his tax plan because the American people had learned the truth about it and they didn't like it," McCain told a crowd at a lumber yard. "It's another example that he'll say anything to get elected."

An Obama spokesman accused McCain of distortion and said the Illinois senator's plan always included a work requirement, although it was discussed only within the campaign or to reporters who inquired about the particulars of the plan.
