McCain Ad "Ayers"

video
The Honest Politician Analysis : In an effort to tie Obama to the Weather Underground activist Bill Ayers, the McCain campaign questions their opponents judgment as a leader. What they are not telling you is that Bill Ayers had committed his crimes when Obama was only 8 years old. Bill Ayers is a professor of education at the University of Illinois at Chicago, with whom Barack served on the board of an education-reform organization in the mid-1990’s. According to the Associated Press(AP), they are not close: “No evidence shows they were “pals” or even close when they worked on community boards years ago. Factcheck.org also confirms this attack/ad as false : "There is no indication that Ayers and Obama are now "palling around," or that they have had an ongoing relationship in the past three years. Also, there is nothing to suggest that Ayers is now involved in terrorist activity or that other Obama associates are." Unfortunately this ad as well as the campaigns held promoting this false statement by McCain/Palin are producing rage, fear and violent remarks during their campaign. Recently, there was a woman was asked why she did not like Obama. Her answer - "He is Arab"...This proves that the McCain campaign is sending the false message they want, but unfortunately creating "divide" and prejudice. The McCain campaign needs to immediately reverse this message to it's people as it could cause security concerns for Obama - especially on a false statement.
