rofl. I like your bolded comment.Originally posted by: eskimospy
Pro-Jo, your mistake is that you are trying to think of what would appeal to YOU not what would appeal to voters in general. You would pull the (R) lever even if they nominated a sponge to oppose Obama. (with Palin they are close!)Originally posted by: ProfJohn
After that speech McCain just says "You still haven't answered the question."Originally posted by: Red Dawn
BTW I don't think McCain got a reprimand either.
Plus if Obama gives some speech about how we shouldn't play dirty and turns around and plays dirty it will sort of defeat his purpose, right?
When McCain brings up Ayers, all Obama has to do is gently chide McCain for resorting to personal attacks when the situation before our country is so dire. He worked with Ayers to combat poverty and poorly educated children, not to plant bombs. Sure that stuff might work on you, but all normal people are going to see is a guy who worked on a charity board.
This is why the Ayers thing has never gained traction. It's really hard to say "LOOK AT THE AWFUL PERSON OBAMA WORKED ON THE CHARITY BOARD TO REDUCE POVERTY WITH!" Good luck on making that attack stick, McCain.
