    Repubs are plastering attack ads across battleground States today linking Obama to Wright and other sordid characters and then linking them with Bin Laden.  The "dumbed down" will believe them.  It ain't over yet folks.

      People have heard all the slime already and it hasn`t destroyed Obama. It will just diminish McCain and drive independents to Obama.
      McCain should just lose like a man and maintain some dignity. Unless the phantom whitey tape shows up none of the attacks will work, people are more worried about their finances than Rev Wright.
      The people that care about Wright and Ayers   will be voting for McCain anyway.

      •  Actually - you have a good point (0+ / 0-)

        After reading everything this morning - I think the only thing that might really have legs are the repubs blaming the meltdown on Dems and minority loans.  I'm hearing it talked at work a lot now.  It's starting to catch hold.

        This probably needs to be countered "bigtime".  People need to be told that only 5% of these loans were given to minorities, and the dumbed down need to be told over and over and over.

        Noted yesterday the Wright stuff is probably played out (unless they bring something new) and the Ayres thing never stuck beyond the fringes. He also astutely said that if this were a peace and prosperity election, the personality stuff with those guys and Palin might play better, but the country knows how important this is and they want to get it right.
