David Frum is alright for a canuck. This should be McCain's message.
Obama's ties to the Daley-Kennedy clan are well-known. Hell, the woman who chaired his VP pick committee was a Kennedy. Ted Kennedy was HUGE in getting Obama nominated. Caroline Kennedy said Obama reminded her of her father.
The Kennedy's ties to Chicago are well-known.
This isn't big news.
Every politician has corrupt friends big freaking deal! WHat is new? Name one President who didn't have one corrupt friend or radical. I am sure even Jimmie Carter had some corrupt people in his pocket. YOu think getting elected President is easy or getting to the position where it is possible.
wtf? He isn't a bomb thrower. What a disingenuous piece of garbage.
According to "The Untouchables" with Kevin Costner as Eliot Ness and Sean Connery as Jim Malone.
This is "Thah Chicago Way"

Wow, you read that completely out of context. Are you really that stupid?
how about hyper-sensitive instead of stupid?
The sentence doesn't imply that Obama is a bomb-thrower, in fact it says he's not and the real problem is trying to tie him to Ayers instead of the corrupt underbelly of Chicago.
but I agree that the very idea that ANY politican who reaches this level in the poltical arena is completely clean is laughable at best.
I think Jimmy Carter might be the closet we ever got and even he wasn't squeaky clean.
Obama proved he can play hardball like any other politican when he had Alice Palmer kicked off the ballot when she tried to insert herself back into the race for state legislature after basically handing the reigns over to Obama. He kicked her right in the nuts (so to speak) and he earned a lot fo ire for that from Chicago insiders.
Exactly. The Ayers connection is irrelevent at this point. However, hammering Obama on his Chicago Machine upbringing is perfectly plausible. That is all the article is saying.
At least he didn't have to marry into politics.
Really? Are you really being this petty?
