This is from John McCain’s speech today in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Several have said it is one of the best speeches they’ve heard him give recently. It’s Time McCain spoke out, many have called on him to do so from the beginning. You can’t count on the Media to bring it out. They did not even listen to Hillary during the primaries.. The Media did not investigate her claims of voter fraud. Why in the world would the GOP think they would do anything now? It is up to us to get it out..email it, blog it, tell it. Then if they do not listen and want to believe the Liberal Left..well, that’s what they will get and we will all suffer. We will know that we have done our best and that is all one can do.

FULL LINK Open Thread * It Matters How You Respond (or Don’t), Mr. Obama [Update]
Today, on CNN, Obama’s chief strategist David Axelrod asserted that Obama didn’t even know about Ayers’ radical past as a founder of the Weathermen.
Didn’t even know? What are you on people? We have been talking about this for a year. Tell me, Were you on something then or now? All together now let’s sing.. Memories… by Barbara Streisand and see if you can recall..
But bringing it up seems to be a tactical error.
It seems defensive. It opens up a factual issue that will merit more journalism, and more attention — can anyone contradict Axelrod? When did Obama find out who Ayers was? Already, paper is flying out of the McCain camp:
“Does Barack Obama truly expect the American people to believe that he had no idea about his friend’s past as the infamous founder of the domestic terror group ‘The Weather Underground’ or is he just lying? If Obama didn’t know in 1995 about the bombings Ayers was responsible for, when did he find out — because Obama was promoting Ayers’ book in 1997, serving on boards with him until 2002, and trading emails and phone calls with him as recently as 2005. If Obama really was unaware of Ayers’ radical past, learning the truth doesn’t seem to have had any effect on their friendship.” …
The Newsday blogger adds All the McCain camp wants is for people to talk about Obama-Ayers, and Axelrod has provided fuel for the discussion.
