McCain Hits Obama on Troop Visit ... But Should He?

From a McCain press release:
"U.S. Senator John McCain's presidential campaign today released its latest television ad entitled "Troops." The ad highlights Barack Obama's record of not calling a single oversight hearing on NATO's mission in Afghanistan, not visiting in Iraq for over 900 days, not supporting our troops when he voted against critical funding in 2007 and not visiting our wounded troops in Germany when he made time to go to the gym but canceled trips to Ramstein and Landstuhl. The ad will air in key states.

Clearly, this is an issue that puts Obama on the defensive.  There is no excuse for his decision to skip this visit.

My only question is: Should McCain be the one making this attack, either in person -- or in campaign ads?

In short, wouldn't this message be better delivered by a surrogate -- while McCain stays above the fray?

... And if you agree with that statement, does the lack of 527 groups (such as Swift Boat Veterans for Truth) this cycle ironically pose a serious problem for a candidate who already has a lot of obstacles to overcome?
