Shame on Obama for knowing a guy that a committee chaired by McCain gave half a million dollars to in the 90's!

The shame!

Omegax I bet these guys don't even realize that little ditty... :lol:

4 days to go, and his campaign and its minions are still grasping at straws like this, when in reality, McCain could have the very same argument made against himself.

Talk about an association! He GAVE $$$$$ to the guy! a LOT of $$$$

So if it's no big deal why are they hiding it?

Since 2003, the Joyce Foundation has paid grants totaling over $12 million to gun control organizations

The Joyce Foundation's Annual Reports list Barack Obama as one of the 12 members of the Board of Directors from 1998 until 2001
Bad for McCain but okay for Obama??

:eyeroll:

Liberalism can never stand the light of day so they hide it.

You can just imagine if McCain was on the tape hob nobbing with anti american terroists, it would be played on every newscast everyday.

McCain does hang around with anti-American terrorists! G. Gordon Liddy is not exactly the paragon of integrity. The dude wanted to firebomb the Brookings Institute, and kidnap war protesters! He also said that listening to Hitler speeches "made me feel a strength inside I had never known before"

I don't care about Liddy. My point is that guilt by association is desperate and it's BS.

I heard on the news last night that this was all rumor. Any way to find out? I'm curious.

The Hitler comment is out of context and not representative of Giddys views as an adult. Giddy is a nutcase but the big difference is he was sent to prison for his involvement, Ayers never served a day for murdering people. Giddy talked about murdering people, Ayers did it.

association is definitetly always a legitimate consideration of ones character

ABCNews has a copy of IRI's 1998 tax return showing them giving $448,873 to the Center for Palestine Research and Studies:
Thank you!

You have proven my point, items from the right get printed and distributed.

Items from the left get hidden.

Again, it there is nothing to it, why doesn't the LA Times release it??

That does nothing of the kind! The IRI's tax return is public record. It's a silly comparison.

The tape isn't being released because it was given to them on the condition that they not release it. You can't run around stabbing sources in the back and expect to get more.

Bull doo doo! The papers do it all the time and if it was so risky, why did they even bring it up in the first place.

Their possession of the tape wasn't a lucky guess, they had a story on it.
