Earlier today in Where Eagles Dare: A Message For Senator McCain, I pleaded with Senator McCain to take the fight directly to Senator Obama, who has been dismissing oblique references by saying Senator McCain “never said it to my face.”
Today, Senator McCain gets a step closer and raises the issue at a campaign rally.
As well, in an interview with Charles Gibson (who apparently suffers from MPJS – Multiple Personality Journalistic Syndrome), McCain makes a direct challenge for Obama to clarify his relationship with unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers.
“[Ayers] wasn’t a guy in the neighborhood. [Obama] launched his political career in his living room, in Mr. Ayers’ living room. And I don’t care about two washed-up old terrorists that are unrepentant about trying to destroy America. But I do care, and Americans should care, about his relationship with him and whether he’s being truthful and candid about it,” McCain said.
Thank you, sir. For the record, I do care about “two washed-up old terrorists,” because they have never repented their actions and they clearly control hefty sums of money, wield significant non-kinetic power and are bent on transforming the United States into a socialist form of government. All under the guise of education. (My hometown University of Illinois continues to break my heart.) They don’t seem so washed up to me. And that money and power wielding for a shared political vision is precisely where Obama comes into play.
There’s reason to doubt that oft-repeated pledge of ‘supporting the troops’ when you’ve worked for a man who tried to kill the troops.
