The Republican National Committee (RNC) unveiled a new radio ad buy for "Obama Chooses Washington Over Our Military." As Barack Obama travels to Paris, France, the radio ad will remind voters in Paris, MO; Paris, MI; and Paris, ME, that Obama’s politically expedient record has consistently put politics before the needs of our military.

Title: "Obama Chooses Washington Over Our Military"

There are few votes as important as funding our men and women in uniform.
But when our military needed necessary resources, Barack Obama failed to stand up.
Obama said that nobody wanted to play chicken with our troops on the ground.
But when it came time to act, he voted against critical resources: no to individual body armor, no to helicopters, no to ammunition, no to aircraft.
The bill Obama opposed even had funding for veterans’ medical facilities and rehabilitation programs.
And why did he say no?
Obama chose Washington politics over the needs of our military.
And Senator McCain?
As a veteran and someone who has always put the public interest first, John McCain stood by our troops.
If Obama can’t rise above politics to support our soldiers in a time of war, then how can he claim to have the strength to change the way Washington works?
John McCain is ready to lead. Barack Obama is not.
