Sarah Palin says Obama is pals with terroristsOctober 5th, 2008 - 4:48 pm ICT by ANI
London , Oct 5 (ANI): Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin has accused Democratic presidential candidate of hobnobbing with terrorists and appealed to her countrymen not to trust him.
She accused Obama for having links with Bill Ayres, the former terrorist-turned-education professor whose Weather Underground group had bombed the Pentagon in the 1960s, and with whom Obama worked on community projects in the mid-1990s.
This is not a man who sees America as you see America and as I see America . Our opponent is someone who sees America , it seems, as being so imperfect that he’’s palling around with terrorists who would target their own country. Americans need to know this, The Telegraph quoted her as saying at a fundraiser in Colarado.
Her partys presidential candidate John McCains campaign has accused his Democratic rival Barack Obama of consorting with terrorists.
Sarah Palins comment was echoed by McCain ally Mike Huckabee, the former presidential candidate, who said: If you hang out with somebody who has never apologised for bombing the Pentagon and the Capitol and is proud of something he should have been ashamed of, then it calls into question your judgment.
They spoke out after the New York Times ran an article saying Obama had played down his links with Ayres.
Meanwhile, a Democratic spokesman condemned Palins shameless attack and pointed out that the same story (in the NYT) concluded that Obama is not close to Bill Ayres, much less pals and that he string condemned the despicable acts Ayres committed 40 years ago when Obama was eight.
The move comes amid growing panic in the McCain campaign and signs that McCains closest aides do not believe he can win the race for the White House in a fair fight.
There have been several occasions in the past month when members of McCains inner circle have said they fear he was doomed. Voters have flocked to Obama in the economic crisis, and McCain has lost the lead in several key swing states that he must win if he is to have any chance of victory in November. (ANI)
