    Looks like the McCain campaign has been hoisted on its own petard. :laugh:

    "Here's the icing on the cake: just yesterday, the McCain campaign put out a press release bragging about the fact that Leonore Annenberg has endorsed him for president. Yes, you heard it-- a McCain backer bankrolled William Ayers with millions of dollars.

    More icing: You know that Republican Arnold Weber I mentioned earlier? The one that served on the board of the CAC with Barack? Not only did he work with William Ayers in the 90's, he has also donated at least $1000 to the McCain campaign. That's right-- McCain is accepting money from associates of William Ayers, and so far has not given the money back."

    Why would he give the money back? Why have people bought into the stupid idea that because someone gives money, the person who receives the money supports the idea of the person who gave the money? Nothing could be dumber ... but what we have found in American politics is that there is nothing to dumb to be said by somebody.

    The point, Pastor Larry, is that the McCain campaign has been playing the guilt by association game and now it has come back to bite them big time. :laugh:

    That may be the worst attempt at an argument you have made yet, and that's saying a lot. Absolutely ludicrous ...

    So in your mind a political contribution received equals "association"?

    You have illustrated no "association" between McCain and Ayers that approaches the close personal relationship of Obama with the unrepentent terrorist.

    I think it is a good idea to take the money of the radicals, if they'll give it, and use it against them.

    Obama uses it to advance their radical agenda. There is no indication that McCain has or will.

    Define close personal relationship?

    He held a meet and greet at the start of his political career and they sat on a board together. I have closer friends than that who I don't even remember.

    I haven't been able to find any credible sources to show Obama recently had any ties or associations to Ayres, Rezko or ACORN. It can be said of McCain/Keating he made a mistake, apologized so let's move on but Obama is somehow held to a different criteria. He admitted Rezko was a "bonehead" move, gave any perceived gains to charity but is still not forgiven by the ultra conservatives.

    I think that's the difference between the two campaign's. Obama's foundation is his ideas for change and willingness to address the challenges facing the new president where as McCain's foundation is Obama's past and lack of experience. It appears every attempt he makes at diverting America's attention from our current situation is putting more votes in Obama column. Majority of voters are shouting who cares about Ayres, Rezko or ACORN but their shouts are only being heard by one campaign.

    lolololol :laugh: :wavey:

    I think I should be invited to one of these talk shows. But to be fair, I can pick apart his and McCain's talking points as easy as I can defend them. All their proposals have good and bad they don't ever talk about.
