    I love how the Dems act "holier than thou" but just happen to have a 13 minute video ready.

    I thought he was a professor?


    As the article notes, Michelle Obama was the Director of the University Of Chicago’s Community Service program at the time.

    So this panel was surely her doing. She invited Mr. Ayers.

    Still, we all must be mistaken, since we have been repeatedly reassured that Mr. Ayers “was just a guy who lived in the Obamas’ neighborhood.”
    Ayers was Barry's mentor. There is no real way that Ayers just disappeared into thin air. Great find Library Lady! We've got to get this news out there.

    Why was Ayers invited? No other people qualified to speak on this topic? Just proves MO's militant leaning past.

    Isn't connecting the dots fun :D

    Keating Five Member is Obama Surrogate

    If Barack Obama is so outraged at John McCain’s involvement in the Keating Five scandal, why is John Glenn, another Keating Five member, doing surrogate work for Obama?

    Obama’s presidential campaign released a scathing documentary on Monday detailing McCain’s ties to the Savings and Loan crisis on the 1980’s. Five U.S. senators were named in the scandal: Sen. Alan Cranston (D.-Calif.), Sen. Dennis DeConcini (D.-Ariz.), Sen. John Glenn (D.-Ohio), Sen. John McCain (R.-Ariz.) and Sen. Donald Reigle (D-Minn.).

    "The Keating scandal is eerily similar to today's credit crisis, where a lack of regulation and cozy relationships between the financial industry and Congress has allowed banks to make risky loans and profit by bending the rules," reads a trailer for the video on a website created by the Obama campaign to attack McCain, www.keatingeconomics.com. "And in both cases, John McCain's judgment and values have placed him on the wrong side of history.

    But Obama doesn’t seem to have any quarrel with Glenn. The former Democratic Ohio senator introduced Bruce Springsteen at a benefit concert for Obama in Ohio on Sunday, October 5. He's also done other surrogate work for Obama as well. According to Obama's presidential website Glenn held a conference calls with reporters for Obama in August.

    A day after Glenn urged people to register to vote for Obama in Ohio, Obama’s campaign began a multimedia campaign to remind the public McCain was one of the “Keating Five” although he was eventually cleared of all charges.

    Like McCain, Glenn was also found not guilty of violating any Senate rules.

    Attorney John Dowd, who represented McCain during the Senate Ethics investigation, said Senate Democrats conducted a "classic political smear job" on McCain in the Keating Five scandal.

    "When it was discovered Keating was pushing too hard, he [McCain] threw Keating out of his office and ended all relations with him," Dowd said.
    By the way, Bob Bennett, a Democrat, was special counsel in the K5 investigation. Despite his partisan affiliation, he says McCain was clean in the investigation.

    Another point that I don't think you are thinking about. The economy isn't a win for democrats once the public knows what really happened. Especially after McCain comes out during the debates and states why we are in the mess we are in....two words, Fannie and Freddie. I know I don't have to explain to you why the Frddie and Frannie connections is NOT a win for the democrats.

    He was campaigning for Obama at the big Springsteen concert
    When the astronaut made way for the Boss on the Oval, 10,000 people roared in unison, "Bruuuuce!"

    "You don't get introduced by John Glenn every day," Bruce Springsteen said, breaking into an impromptu version of Mr. Spaceman.

    The Keating Five were five United States Senators accused of corruption in 1989, igniting a major political scandal as part of the larger Savings and Loan crisis of the late 1980s and early 1990s. The five senators, Alan Cranston (D-CA), Dennis DeConcini (D-AZ), John Glenn (D-OH), John McCain (R-AZ), and Donald W. Riegle (D-MI), were accused of improperly intervening in 1987 on behalf of Charles H. Keating, Jr., chairman of the Lincoln Savings and Loan Association, which was the target of a regulatory investigation by the Federal Home Loan Bank Board (FHLBB). The FHLBB subsequently backed off taking action against Lincoln.

    On his Keating Five experience, McCain has said: "The appearance of it was wrong. It's a wrong appearance when a group of senators appear in a meeting with a group of regulators, because it conveys the impression of undue and improper influence. And it was the wrong thing to do."

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keating..._poor_judgment

    Yep - clean as a whistle.


    Reality Check: Since January of 2000 - its been a Republican in the Oval Office.

    McCain will have to flap his arms faster than a hummingbird on the debate stage and rise up off the carpet before the American voters will believe this is strictly about Freddie and Fannie. For some odd reason they think it also has to do with $10,000,000,000 a month being spent in Iraq, no health care plan for 50,000,000 of their citizenry and unregulated corporate fat-cats landing in the Bahamas with their golden parachutes.

    Silly rabbits.
    At Coretta Scott King's funeral in early 2006, Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert Kennedy, leaned over to him and whispered, "The torch is being passed to you." "A chill went up my spine," Obama told an aide. (Newsweek)

    We all about Barry's resources in the MSM, Hollywood, and the schools. We already know that he has far more money to play with than does McCain. And yet - with all Baryy has going for him - he's still only up by a few points in the polls.
