BHO AND AYERS:

15:44:11 PM “Today they’re saying for the first time that Barack Obama didn’t know back then about Ayers’s radical background. But it was only a few months ago that Barack was saying Ayers was just a ‘guy in my neighborhood.”

15:44:30 PM “But, Wait a minute. He didn’t know a few months ago that he had launched his political career in the living room of a domestic terrorist?”

15:44:46 PM “So What’s next? Claiming their ticket doesn’t define higher taxes as “patriotic?”

15:44:52 PM “Or claiming he’s just learned that tax increases on small business kill jobs?”

15:44:59 PM “Claiming he’s just learned that American soldiers don’t actually target and kill civilians in Afghanistan?”

THINGS MAY GET ROUGH/ GLOVES OFF
15:46:33 “You know from now until Election Day hang on to your hats because you know it may get kind of rough here in terms of campaigns having to step up and kind of take the gloves off and start telling the truth about what a candidate stands for and perhaps some of the things that I’m going to be doing and saying I’ll do my best you know to kind of fit in there well not really to fit in there –well how about this I do my best to keep giving material to tina fey to keep her in business.”

Responses

  1. Al of these issues came up in the Democratic Primary, this is not a new story. Just a new campain tactic by McCain. He announced this weekend that he does not want to talk about the economy anymore, rather he want to just attack Obama.

    This is what he thinks about attack ads.

  2. Sarah Palin is thankful that the Constitution is a history leaflet that would allow a bit more authority given to the vice president, if that vice president so chose to exert it, in working with the Senate and making sure that we are supportive of every throb of the spectacular machinery, of the president’s policies, and of making sure, too, that our president understands what our strengths are.

  3. LOUD ROAR and APPAULSE!!!

  4. OK??? We saw what happened with the current VP, HE pushed the case for War in Iraq more than the presidnet did, he lied to members of Congress. After what he did to this country we should never let the VP have any power again!!!

    Please tell me you are going to defend Darth Chaney

    At least he knew what he was doing and could at least answer questions at his debate. Palin is a master of talking with out saying anything.

  5. ::blinks:: Are you saying that Gov Palin is behaving like Obama and his Obamabots? I don’t think you have the facts right. What is the role of the VP candidate in elections? That is a history question for you. *tick* *tock* can you hear the jeopardy music?

  6. SMEAR SMEAR SMEAR, I get it But the Presidental Canidate should talk about his platform. All hear from McCain is “I don’t believe in running a campain that smears”, oh yeah and “Maverick” “Change”. But he doesn’t lay out how he will be diferent than Bush.

  7. I look at your little green monster character and read smear…. and can’t help but laughing…

    This is the VP candidate in these videos… yes? Everyday Sen McCain lays out his plan are you listening or do you merely repeat the blabbering from the Ad of the Day or MSNBC (who are the big losers in the ratings game… hahaha).

    BTW — If all you hear from McCain is “… not running a campaign that smears… you better change the channel or do some research on the net. That is all you hear from Obama rerunning old material. Some bloggers have even starting logging all of the lies that Obama has told YOU.

    check this out. http://www.audacityofhypocrisy.com/fashion-shows/

  8. When has he done anything but smear? I listen to him all the time. All I hear are the same old lines from McCain, most of which are not true…

    http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1008/14208.html

  9. Listen to McCain’s own words.

    http://therealmccain.com/

  10. I didn’t pick the Avatar your website just gave it to me.

  11. I know but it is funny. Moving from your smear campaign to a subject that is on everyone’s minds… the economy and how did we get here? I was saving this for a full on blog post… but if you have 10 minutes… watch — learn — research —

    The truth is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aojLyJVNUwQ

    “Only watch this if you have an open mind. The research has been done for you, and you can follow up and do your own research too. I’ve checked it. It’s all true.

    This isn’t about the no citizenship problem . . . not the Ayers problem . . . not the Larry Sinclair problem . . . not the G-D America Reverend Wright problem . . . not the ACORN problem . . . not the illegal voting that cost Mrs. Clinton the primary AND THE PRESIDENCY which was rightfully hers . . . not about the Reznek money laundering . . . nor is this about dozens of other major issues which still make me wonder HOW Obama won a single primary! No, this 10 minute video is about why were in the current financial mess. ” – from blogger NIGHTMARE

    Ready to hear from YOUR President on the Economy? coming up next.

  12. That looks pretty damaging, why is there only info on the Dem’s? Reb’s must have been on Vacation. The bill that McCain “Co-sponsored” Fails to mention that the republicans had the house and senate durring that time, and that Phil Gramm wrote it and John McCain Voted for it.

    They are all at fault for this mess. You can not only blame one side for this. This style of Economics is what the Republicans stand for, Deregulation.

    We can not let this happen again, twice in 20 years is enough. Both times the Republicans had the White house.

    How are the Dems responsible for Richard Shelby’s failure to get the reform bill out of committee, or for the Republican failure to pass any reform bill from 2003-2006?

  13. Talk about domestic terrorist:

    http://thinkprogress.org/2008/10/06/mccain-abotion-bombers/

  14. So Obama got $525,000 and McCain’s Campain manager got almost $2,000,000 for his law firm untill a couple months ago. Why don’t you report that?

  15. Do you research your sources before you quote? Do you know who stuart wood is? what a dupe he has on you.

  16. So are you telling me that the Republicans had nothing to do with this problem?

  17. You must be playing hookie today. I’ll read all of your stuff and respond in detail after the debate. I have to work… lol and I have a few things to get out today…

  18. I have been working all day, I am able to go on line anytime. I actually close acouple account today.

  19. In response to Chris on SMEAR, SMEAR, SMEAR comment… McCain is not making this up. It is only a smear if it is false. [again will take one of your claims at a time – going to next one.]

    CNN’s Drew Griffin Does a Real Fact-Check on Obama/Ayers Connection by Matthew Balan (Oct 7, 2008)

    During a report on Monday’s Anderson Cooper 360 program, CNN investigative correspondent Drew Griffin presented many of the missing details about the relationship between Barack Obama and left-wing terrorist William Ayers that two earlier “Truth Squad” reports on the network on Sunday and Monday omitted. Griffin stated that despite the spin of the Obama campaign and their mainstream media supporters, “…the relationship between Obama and Ayers went much deeper, ran much longer, and was much more political than Obama said.”

    Host Anderson Cooper introduced Griffin’s report, which began 19 minutes into the 10 pm Eastern hour, as one of the CNN program’s “Keeping Them Honest” features. Oddly, a on-screen graphic that read “The Dow Plunges,” which had nothing to do with the subject of the segment, ran during its entirety. The correspondent began by repeating Ayers and his wife Bernadine Dohrn’s background in the Weather Underground, “an anti-Vietnam War group that bombed federal buildings, including the U.S. Capitol and the Pentagon.” He then gave Obama’s early characterization of his relationship with the 1960’s radical, that the Democrat “confirmed… that he knew Ayers, and, when pressed, said they served on a charitable foundation board together, and Obama condemned Ayers’ support of violence.”

    Griffin then outlined how “the relationship between Obama and Ayers went much deeper, ran much longer, and was much more political than Obama said.” After playing a sound bite from senior Obama campaign adviser Anita Dunn, who thought it was “just wrong, and, frankly, it’s quite unfair” that Obama’s opponents were going after her candidate “because of Bill Ayers’ past,” the CNN correspondent introduced how Obama and Ayers’ “paths repeatedly crossed” as members of the board of the Annenberg Challenge Project, where for seven years, “Bill Ayers and Obama, among many others, worked on funding for education projects, including some experiments supported by Ayers.” In another sound bite, National Review Online’s Stanley Kurtz characterized how this funding worked: “Instead of giving money directly to schools, they gave men to what they called external partners, and these external partners were often pretty radical community organizer groups.”

    Later, Griffin detailed how Ayers and Obama were also board members for the Woods Fund, another foundation which donated money to liberal groups: “Among its recipients — Jeremiah Wright’s Trinity United Church, where Obama attended, and a children and family justice center where Ayers’ wife worked.”

    The CNN correspondent concluded his report with details about the 1995 meeting at Ayers’ house where then-Illinois State Senator Alice Palmer introduced Obama as her heir-apparent: “In 1995, months after the little-known Barack Obama became Annenberg Project chair, [Illinois] State Senator Alice Palmer introduced the young Obama as her political heir-apparent. Where was that introduction made? At the home of the ’60s radicals Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn.” Dunn, in another sound bite, tried to portray this meeting as innocent: “A Democratic state senator organizes a meeting of her supporters at the house of another one of her supporters. What is the problem here, Drew? It is the worst kind of inference and the worst kind of politics to say that, somehow, that says something about Barack Obama.”

    However, after his report concluded, Griffin countered that “this meeting at Bill Ayers’ home has been classified in many different ways. What I can tell you from two people who were actually there is: number one, former State Senator Alice Palmer says she in no way organized this meeting. She was invited, and attended it briefly. And, Dr. Quinton Young, a retired doctor, told us this indeed was Barack Obama’s political coming-out party and it was hosted by Bill Ayers.”

    The full transcript of Drew Griffin’s report from Monday’s Anderson Cooper 360:

    SARAH PALIN: It turns out one of his earliest supporters is a man named Bill Ayers.

    (Crowd Boos)

    PALIN: And, according to The New York Times, he was a domestic terrorist and part of a group that quote,’launched a campaign of bombings that would target the Pentagon and our U.S. Capitol.’

    ANDERSON COOPER: Well, that, of course, is Sarah Palin today on the stump spearheading this new effort by the McCain campaign to raise doubts about Barack Obama. Now, critics say they’re simply trying to change the focus from the economy to this issue back on Obama. But, in this case, they’re linking him to a ’60s radical, Bill Ayers. Supporters of the McCain campaign say, look, this is all fair game. In a debate earlier this year, Barack Obama described Ayers as quote, ‘a guy who lives in my neighborhood,’ and with whom he served on a board. Now, the Obama campaign is clearly trying to play down any allegations of a relationship between these

    two men, and, just as clearly, the McCain is trying to play up allegations of a relationship. So, what’s the truth? CNN Special Investigations Unit correspondent Drew Griffin is ‘Keeping Them Honest.’

    DREW GRIFFIN (voice-over): Bill Ayers and his wife, Bernadine Dohrn, in the 1960s and ’70s, were radicals — members of the Weather Underground, an anti-Vietnam War group that bombed federal buildings, including the U.S. Capitol and the Pentagon. On the run for years, the case against them was thrown out, due to illegal wiretaps and prosecutor misconduct. Ayers has never repented and has said, as late

    as 2001, he wished he had done more to stop the war.

    Barack Obama confirmed during a primary debate that he knew Ayers, and, when pressed, said they served on a charitable foundation board together, and Obama condemned Ayers’ support of violence. But the relationship between Obama and Ayers went much deeper, ran much longer, and was much more political than Obama said.

    ANITA DUNN, SENIOR OBAMA CAMPAIGN ADVISER: What they are arguing is that, somehow, the fact that these two people who served — both [as] educational reformers in Chicago, both of whom did have their paths cross professionally, as well as — as neighbors occasionally, that, somehow, this association is a problem for Barack Obama because of Bill Ayers’ past and things that happened in the 1960s, when Barack Obama was 7 years

    old. And that’s just wrong, and, frankly, it’s quite unfair.

    GRIFFIN: One place their paths repeatedly crossed, according to a CNN review of board minutes and other records, was Chicago’s Annenberg Challenge Project, where a $50 million grant from the Annenberg Foundation matched locally-raised funds to improve schools. According to participants and project records, Bill Ayers fought to bring the Annenberg grant to Chicago. Barack Obama was recruited as its chair. For seven years, Bill Ayers and Obama, among many others, worked on funding for education projects, including some experiments supported by Ayers.

    Stanley Kurtz, a conservative researcher for the Ethics and Public Policy Center, has also been reviewing the recently released records of Chicago’s Annenberg Challenge.

    STANLEY KURTZ, NATIONAL REVIEW ONLINE: Instead of giving money directly to schools, they gave men to what they called external partners, and these external partners were often pretty radical community organizer groups.

    GRIFFIN: And the board gave hundreds of thousands of dollars to Bill Ayers’ Small Schools Project promoting alternative education, like the Peace School, with a curriculum centered around a United Nations theme, and another school where the focus was African-American studies.

    GRIFFIN: (on-camera): And this was directly funded by Annenberg?

    KURTZ: Oh, yes.

    GRIFFIN: Under Obama’s chairmanship?

    KURTZ: Oh, yes, and the specific job of the board of directors was to give out the money.

    GRIFFIN (voice-over): While continuing work on the Annenberg Challenge, Barack Obama and Bill Ayers also served together on a second charitable foundation, the Woods Fund. Among its recipients — Jeremiah Wright’s Trinity United Church, where Obama attended, and a children and family justice center where Ayers’ wife worked. Ayers has strong defenders in Chicago, among them Richard Daley, the mayor, who called Ayers a valued member of the Chicago community. The city gave Ayers its Citizen of the Year award in 1997 for his work on the Annenberg Project.

    For Obama, the chairmanship of the $100 million Annenberg board helped vault him from South Side Chicago lawyer to political player, and that, too, has another connection to Bill Ayers. In 1995, months after the little-known Barack Obama became Annenberg Project chair, [Illinois] State Senator Alice Palmer introduced the young Obama as her political heir-apparent. Where was that introduction made? At the home of the ’60s radicals Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn. The Obama campaign again says it is just a coincidence.

    DUNN: A Democratic state senator organizes a meeting of her supporters at the house of another one of her supporters. What is the problem here, Drew? It is the worst kind of inference and the worst kind of politics to say that, somehow, that says something about Barack Obama.

    GRIFFIN (on-camera): Anderson, this meeting at Bill Ayers’ home has been classified in many different ways. What I can tell you from two people who were actually there is: number one, former State Senator Alice Palmer says she in no way organized this meeting. She was invited, and attended it briefly. And, Dr. QuintonYoung, a retired doctor, told us this indeed was Barack Obama’s political coming-out party and it was hosted by Bill Ayers.

    COOPER: So, Drew — bottom line, if Obama and Ayers worked together with others to, I guess, improve schools, what exactly is the McCain/Palin camp saying is wrong with — with this relationship, or this working relationship, or however you want to characterize it?

    GRIFFIN: Well, Anderson, I haven’t contacted the McCain campaign on this issue. What they’re saying on the stump is the same thing that Hillary Clinton brought up during the primary campaign. It is the issue of trust. You know, by raising this issue of Bill Ayers, and whether or not Barack Obama was hanging around with him, palling around with him, or just working with him — Bill Ayers, in the ’60s, had a very, very different view of the United States that many Americans did. A lot of Americans were against the Vietnam War, but not a lot of Americans formed a group and started bombing things because of it. Now, they’re trying to say that that raises judgment issues on Barack Obama, which has been the tag other campaigns — now McCain’s, have been trying to peg on him ever since he started running for president.

    COOPER: But Barack Obama has publicly stated he does not agree with this guy, correct?

    GRIFFIN: Well, he has said that he does — I forget his exact words, but he certainly deplores the — the violence in the past.

    COOPER: Right.

    GRIFFIN: I haven’t been able to ask him directly about the relationship he has or had with — with Bill Ayers.

    COOPER: All right, Drew Griffin, thanks very much.

  20. Very little in there that was not already known. Did you say the city of Chicago:

    The city gave Ayers its Citizen of the Year award in 1997 for his work on the Annenberg Project.

    WOW maybe we can kick Chicago out of the US for giving a “Citizen of the Year ” award to a Terrorist!!!

    They also mentioned how this attack didn’t work for Hillary. She started this attack when she was down in the polls too, we will see how it turns out.

  21. Do you really want us to expose your “Citizen of the Year?”

    Actually this attack was working for Hillary. She just brought it on too late. Had she brought this on earlier — she would have won. Actually she did win if you counted the votes. So since you brought it up … we will devote lots and lots of time on your Citizen of the Year and explore the “works” and payoffs involved. LOL

  22. He is not my Citizen of the year, I don’t live in Chicago, I love my Cali, and I will never leave her.
