The McCain crew had been busy for for a couple of days trying to sell the absurd notion that Obama and Ayers are close friends and some how that then 8 year old Obama is in some way tied to Ayers actions during the Vietnamese War.
Then just prior to the debate McCain's people take this false flag distraction off of the table. They made it appear that they had decided that the didn't want to be quite that sleazy.
During the debate, McCain said nothing.
Now that Obama can not confront him directly, McCain starts up the lie again.
What a wimp, if he had any real conviction on this issue he would have brought it up during the debate face to face. No he waits till after the debate, and starts spreading his bull again.
A liar and a coward, not traits that many consider Presidential.
