Post-debate ads

From NBC's Domenico Montanaro and NBC/NJ's Adam Aigner Treworgy
The campaigns both cut ads after the debate. McCain doesn't use footage of the debate (Obama does), but his uses a topic that was talked about at the debate -- troop funding. It also uses Biden's words about troop funding from the primary. But as nonpartisan groups have pointed out, and Obama said Friday, McCain also urged the President to veto a funding bill because it included a timetable for withdrawal.  (FactCheck.org and Politifact have more on the candidates' debate truth flubs.)

Obama's highlights McCain not using the word "middle class" -- something Obama camp was pushing after the debate. (See other word counts, including this one, here.)
