Jesus... It was a quote made by Alexander Cockburn.
It's not the opinion of the website that Cockburn said it.
It's not Obama's opinion that Cockburn said it.
It's a FACT that Cockburn said it.
Than why did Obama's fact sheet describe him as "member of the establishment and friends with the mayor"? Its practically the same as saying
"respectable and mainstream". Its OBVIOUS that's the image his campaign was trying to push of Ayers.
Dronetek...I think at this point you are playing dumb.
This is what the ad says/texts verbatum....
Obama on Ayers: "respectable" "mainstream"
Notice the qoutation marks? Not much question here that they are attributing these exact words to OBAMA as opposed to the journalist who actually
wrote those words in an article on the website.
THEY DIDN'T SAY "THIS IS THE IMAGE OF AYERS THAT WE THINK OBAMA'S STAFF WOULD LIKE YOU TO HAVE"
THEY ATTRIBUTED THE QOUTES TO OBAMA AND THAT IS OUTRIGHT LIEING. INEXCUSABLE.
I wouldn't stand for this comming from any political camp and neither should you lest someone find some article about McCain and qoute the journalist
but say it is McCain and then run it in an attack ad.
C'Mon Dronetek ... you get it right?
Let's try this...As an experiment I pulled up the first news article on McCain's website and pulled something out of context from it...."McCain
represents the past, that Virginians ready to turn the page should vote for Obama. "
It's righ there on his website...should I now run an ad saying in a sinister voice.....according to McCain "...Virginians ready to turn the page
should vote for Obama.."
