Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama accused Republican rival John McCain of wanting to privatize social security, cut cost-of-living adjustments or raise the retirement age to receive benefits.

Obama, speaking on Saturday to a group from the AARP via satellite from Newark, N.J., said that McCain and the Republicans’ plan for social security “would privatize Social Security and gamble your retirement.”

The ad, titled “Broken,” shows that McCain is, at least in part, running away from President Bush’s record and looking to win favor with the centrist voters who have supported him in the past.

The ad, which is slated to run in key states, comes after Democratic rival Sen. Barack Obama (Ill.) made a point of including images of McCain with Bush in his last two ads hitting the Republican on his energy policy. Source Article
