(CNN) - Barack Obama's campaign has quickly rejected Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's claim that he associated "with terrorists who targeted our own country."
Palin attacked Sen. Obama on Saturday for his brief political relationship with Bill Ayers, a founding member of the radical Weather Underground, which was involved in several bombings in the early 1970s, including attacks on the Pentagon and the Capitol. Obama was a child at the time of the bombings.
Obama and Ayers, now a university professor, have met several times since 1995, when both orked with a non-profit group trying to raise funds for a school improvement project and a haritable foundation. CNN's review of project records found nothing to suggest anything nappropriate in the volunteer projects in which the two men were involved.
A CNN Fact Check found Palin's charge to be false.
Palin is right. This man is not good for President. His judgment soooo poor .
OBAMA FOR PRESIDENT! Palin's smear tactics will not work. Nice try folksy mama!!!!!
How low can you go John and Sarah?
I think you have both been set up by the failing GOP. They knew thy didn't stand a chance so they picked you two to take the fall.............just an observation.
So it looks like McCains promise that he would not use negative campaigning and wanted to run an honest campaign is left up in the icy shores of Alaska. Why is he and Palin not telling us how they would run the country differently than Bush? Why are they not telling us their policies and how they will make our lives better? All we are getting is lies, misleading comments and hate about Obama. When I was in the military I new a lot of people who were not capable of doing their jobs and the only way they thought they could get promoted was to report anything negative about their peers. Come on Obama, let the country know you will not stand by this false mudslinging of republican campaigning. Any by the way, why is Palin's husband still walking free after ignoring a subpoena to report to the investigation in Alaska?
A desperate lying winky bit bull with lipstick.
Wow, they say it straight out... they're going to step up attacks and get "tougher". Typical behaviour of the GOP when they know they're going down. They admit they can't win on the issues, so all they can attack is perceived character defects. Pathetic.
And thus beginneth the Swift Boating. But Obama will fight them off, just as he's fought off all of their nonsense in this campaign.
They cant stop lying. Pathetic..
Sarah Palin is so desperate that she will do and say anything even if it is false as this is to win. Why won't she cooperate with her investigation in Alaska. I am sure she is afraid of what will come out about her. Being a Pitbull in lipstick is not a pretty image in the White House.
Trying to "turn the page" on the economy McCain? How can we "turn the page" when you haven't even given us ANY – repeat – ANY ideas on how you plan to do that!
"A CNN Fact Check found Palin's charge to be false."
Where's the apology, Sarah? Where's the retraction, John?
When Palin or McCain open their mouths, all we hear is "Fear, fear fear..." Seems they're ok with lying to get the fear machine hyped up. Obama takes this in stride, he knows it's what we can expect from those two for the next month.
Sarah Palin still gets away with lie, after lie, after lie. Why do we allow Palin to get away with running such a disgusting campaign?
Sarah Palin is a gutless politician with a complete disregard and disrespect for the American voter.
Sarah Palin go back to Alaska, America does not need you, not now, not ever. John McCain has proven to all that his judgement is severely lacking in picking Palin. What a discrace both John McCain and Sarah Palin have become.
Interesting to read some of the same comments made about Hillary Clinton coming from people . . .
I amost wish I could feel sorry for McCain,but I cant.
»Sarah Palin=Wonderful Lady=STRONG leader=Next Vice-President. YES!
Scary Palin needs to look in the mirror when she starts throwing out accusations. Let's talk about troopergate, or how she hired her friends for prominent positions with little or no experience to do the job and lastly how about how she spoke to have alaska cecede from the u.s now that is a terrorist remark.
Now that Sarah Palin has disclosed that she reads, did she view the unemployment section, did she see how many "Joe Six Packs" filed for unemployment in the month of September. Instead of attacking Barack Obama, let the third graders give her an economic plan as extra credit. Put "Country First" and to get the country out of this mess.
»VOTE McCain=The GREAT McCain!
shame on palin for thinking the american people will fall for the "shock and awe" tactics that have become the true platform of the republican party . we actually read newspapers , listen to news and check the "facts". was she winking when she said this to signal a messge that she really didn't know what she was talking about AGAIN .
When you have no platform on which you can base your campaign for POTUS, you can go to Alaska and pick a running mate that can see Russia from her backyard and then you can begin to attack, attack, attack...
Obama was 8 years old when Ayers did this crap and the media and Sarah "inadequate Hockey Mom" Palin are running this story as if there is some validity to it.
The politics of fear from the "RepubliThugs" seems to be in full swing.
Our economy is in recession, jobs are being lost, inflation is up, why don't we just talk about turning the economy around.
This personal attacks are turning me off.
I think McCain and Palin will only help the comedians on the late night shows. They look like a comedy routine out there. It's the economy and were all worried about, and our 401K's going down the drain, but they just don't seem to understand it. Being negative don't tell us nothing in this game of politics.
Obama and his tribe can say anything they want to and its ok, but if anyone says anything they don't agree with, very soon it'll turn out to be racial, and CNN and MSNBC will agree with them, So there you go another G W Bush in different make-up and is always right because he said it.
Deb, I couldn't have said it better, sister!
No one believes Palin or McCain. It's over for them. They're just trying to stay in the news. First it's Michigan. More to come. Can anyone remember a recent campaign in which a campaign gave up on a state before election day? McCain and Palin are in huge trouble here.
John McCain WOULD RATHER LKOSE HIS INTEGRITY BEFORE HE LOSE THIS ELECTION!!!
This is such a despicable smear.
