Crowley: McCain finally goes there

HEMPSTEAD, New York (CNN) - Took him longer than expected, but McCain did go the William Ayers route, but then segued into one of Obama's campaign trail lines. People don't care about William Ayers, they care about the economy.

    Barack looks so calm and unshakeable while McCain looks shaky and angry. I am having a hard time listening to McCain because his behavior is really strange. tense.

    And when it was plainly explained McCain went on to a completely different topic. He sounds like my uncle with dementia.

    Cindy, you are right. I don't care about Ayers. I care about keeping more of my tax dollars regardless of my income. And I care about government cutting spending not trying to "spread the wealth"

    Took him longer because he's old and tired–his senior moments got in the way of getting to Ayers. Pointless.

    OBAMA/BIDEN '08

    it's amazing how the only campaign that commended obama is when he accepted the nomination as the democratic presidential candidate on the day of martin luther king jr when he gave his speech, saying congratulations...and that was it

    Who cares what Obama thinks of Ayers? I want to know what Ayers saw in Obama.

    No one cares about ayers. McCain can keep hounding on that all he wants as he watches his ratings go down the tube. C'mon talk about somethign that matters for a change. And for heaven sakes, quit making those smirks and faces – that will NOT endear you to the AMerical public.

    He's nit-picking and focusing on minutia– it's truly exhausting to watch. Very unfortunate for the republican party.
