McCain did it four times this week:

22 JULY CBS Interview:
Senator Obama has indicated by his failure to acknowledge the success of the surge, that he would rather lose a war than lose a campaign.
22 JULY Rochester, New Hampshire:
I had the courage and the judgment to say I would rather lose a political campaign than lose a war. It seems to me that Obama would rather lose a war in order to win a political campaign.
24 JULY Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania:
“I would rather lose a campaign than lose a war,” he said, later adding “Apparently Sen. Obama would rather lose a war in order to win a campaign."
24 JULY Columbus, Ohio:
... I believe that by his failure to acknowledge the success of the surge — much less his opposition to it — shows that he would rather lose a war than a political campaign.

... I will repeat my statement again, that he would rather lose a war than lose a campaign. Because anyone who fails to acknowledge that the surge has worked, who has consistently opposed it, consistently never sat down and had a briefing with General Petraeus, our commander there, would rather lose a war than a political campaign.

It's a good strategy. In order to counter the charge, Obama would have to come out in favor of winning the war, which would decimate his left-wing support.

He comes off as shrill and desperate. The embodiment of Phil Gramm's Nation of Whiners.
