Fox News polled the Ayers question today.
A full 61% of voters said it had no impact at all on their voting preference, while only 32% said it did. What's worse for McCain, perceptions of him as the "more negative" candidate are climbing, something that will hurt him with swing voters.
The Ayers issue is a loser for McCain. Nobody cares except the Fox News crowd, and their own polling confirms its an electoral loser.
By the way, Fox has the race at 46-39, in Obama's favor.
McCain under 40%.
Lay off the Koolaid, CT...you're saying he knew there were no WMDs but told everyone there were?? Nonsense! The UN and Clinton admin were after Saddumb for WMDs b/4 Bush ran for prez! If you were asked if Saddumb had WMDs in '98 you would have said "no?" We all knew it!I mean, seriously, George W Bush stood in front of the Nation and willfully and knowingly LIED about weapons of mass destruction,
So the fact that Ayers and Obama and others on the Annennberg Challenge Project got a $50 million grant for education reform, ended up closing down the project b/c no results were observable, is just "petty nonsense?" I don't think so!Keep worrying about some petty nonsense about Bill Ayers,
Or that Obama and Ayers while together on the board of the Woods Foundation did this:
Just petty nonsense?JERUSALEM – The board of a nonprofit organization on which Sen. Barack Obama served as a paid director alongside a confessed domestic terrorist granted funding to a controversial Arab group that mourns the establishment of Israel as a "catastrophe" and supports intense immigration reform, including providing drivers licenses and education to illegal aliens.
In 2001, the Woods Fund, a Chicago-based nonprofit that describes itself as a group helping the disadvantaged, provided a $40,000 grant to the Arab American Action Network, or AAAN, for which Khalidi's wife, Mona, serves as president. The Fund provided a second grant to the AAAN for $35,000 in 2002.
