McCain Camp: Obama Playing Race Card

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa — The McCain campaign is accusing Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama of playing the race card.

As the Illinois Democrat campaigned in Cedar Rapids, Iowa on Thursday, Republican John McCain's campaign manager Rick Davis has issued a statement saying that Obama "played the race card, and he played it from the bottom of the deck."

Davis said that move was, as he put it, "divisive, negative, shameful and wrong."

The McCain statement was referring to Obama's remark Wednesday that President Bush and McCain will resort to scare tactics. Obama said: "What they're going to try to do is make you scared of me. ... You know, he doesn't look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills
