Palin also made clear that she was eager for the McCain-Palin campaign to be more aggressive in helping the American people understand â€œwho the real Barack Obama is.â€ Part of who Obama is, she said, has to do with his past associations, such as with the former bomber Bill Ayers. Palin had raised the topic of Ayers Saturday on the campaign trail, and she maintained to me that Obama, whoâ€™s minimized his relationship with Ayers, â€œhasnâ€™t been wholly truthfulâ€ about this.
I pointed out that Obama surely had a closer connection to the Rev. Jeremiah Wright than to Ayers â€” and so, I asked, if Ayers is a legitimate issue, what about Reverend Wright?
She didnâ€™t hesitate: â€œTo tell you the truth, Bill, I donâ€™t know why that association isnâ€™t discussed more, because those were appalling things that that pastor had said about our great country, and to have sat in the pews for 20 years and listened to that â€” with, I donâ€™t know, a sense of condoning it, I guess, because he didnâ€™t get up and leave â€” to me, that does say something about character. But, you know, I guess that would be a John McCain call on whether he wants to bring that up.â€
Team McCain must attack Barack Obama on all fronts including Jeremiah Wright and why Obama sat in those pews all of those years wile saying NOTHING.
Unleash Palin to attack the Obama-Wright-Ayers connection and McCain should attack Obama on Fannie Mae, Jim Johnson and Franklin Raines.
