‘Air-raiding villages and killing civilians’…Obama and Hanoi Jane Fonda’s anti-war cliches sound eerily alike.
But they support the troops….
At least McCain’s campaign has finally used some of Obama’s mealy-mouthed, hypocritical statements about the military as an issue.
Palin weighs in:
Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin attacked Barack Obama Thursday for not being honest about his association with 1960s radical William Ayers.
“Barack Obama hasn’t told the American people the total truth about that, about his association with Ayers,” Palin said on conservative radio host Laura Ingraham’s show. “Doggonit, he fails to tell the American people with candor and with truthfulness what his associations are and we have to know.”
Palin blamed the media for not providing what she characterized as the same level of scrutiny to Obama that it has applied to her and running mate John McCain.
“I don’t see the other ticket being asked to be truthful and give details,” Palin said.
“Some in the mainstream media are saying that, well, we’re taking the gloves off unfairly. No. You know there are only, what, 26 days to go. We gotta start getting answers to these questions that are paramount here so that voters have a choice in front of them that is based on truthfulness and candor. They deserve it.”
The Alaska governor told Ingraham’s listeners that if those questions were being answered, voters would find Obama “out of the mainstream,” adding that the Illinois senator would diminish “the prestige of the United States presidency.”
“What does it say when Barack Obama says he would sit down unconditionally with Ahmadinejad, Kim Jong Il and others, unconditionally, and I guess sort of hand over some of the prestige of the United States presidency and validate, I think validate, some of the positions that these dictators have taken,” Palin said.
……“I’ll repeat again what I’ve said many times. This is a guy who engaged in some despicable acts 40 years ago when I was eight years old. By the time I met him, 10 or 15 years ago, he was a college professor of education at the University of Illinois,” Obama said.
“The notion that somehow he has been involved in my campaign, that he is an adviser of mine, that . . . I’ve ‘palled around with a terrorist’, all these statements are made simply to try to score cheap political points.”
Obama can’t even bring himself to admit that Ayers radical skills were essential in appealing to a like-minded base of constituents in Illinois. Some of them are part of the corrupt Chicago political machine, others are lower-class poor who will vote the same Democrat apparatich back into office because they swallow all that false empathy, and still others who are, like Ayers, leftover 60’s radicals salivating for a ‘change’.
