Depends on What Your Definition of Truth Is

Camp Obama is getting a bit upset with Team McCain continually pointing out facts that make Barry look bad. So yet again, the gloves have come off and just how many gloves does Barry wear for the love of Pete!

In re Acorn - on Fight The Smears, Camp Obama says he never worked for the thugish and voter fraud laden group.

Except, he did.

and there is this: Obama Ran ACORN Power Training Classes.

Both just a bit different than the "facts" as laid out by Camp Obama.

Then there is the Bill Ayers connection:

Oh wait, you say! Barry was only 8 when Ayers was in full blown terrorist mode! Seeing how I wasn't even born when Charlie Manson was murdering people, it would be no big thing to have him over to dinner now, right?

Despite the MSM's attempt to whitewash this relationship, the truth (the real truth, not Barry's truth) is Barry served on The Woods Foundation board WITH Ayers when he said:

“I don’t regret setting bombs. I feel we didn’t do enough.” (published Sept. 11, 2001 in this article). Please take note of the lovely picture of Professor Ayers standing on the American Flag.

Further more, in the Chicago Annenburg Challenge, Ayers and Obama worked closely on pushing radicalism in public schools.

One unsettled question is how Mr. Obama, a former community organizer fresh out of law school, could vault to the top of a new foundation? In response to my questions, the Obama campaign issued a statement saying that Mr. Ayers had nothing to do with Obama's "recruitment" to the board. The statement says Deborah Leff and Patricia Albjerg Graham (presidents of other foundations) recruited him. Yet the archives show that, along with Ms. Leff and Ms. Graham, Mr. Ayers was one of a working group of five who assembled the initial board in 1994. Mr. Ayers founded CAC and was its guiding spirit. No one would have been appointed the CAC chairman without his approval.

Stanley Kurtz further investigates this relationship here and Obama's other choice of friends here.

SarahCuda has begun to point out these unsavory relationships in her stump speeches. The jaw dropping response from the MSM? Criticizing Obama's relationship with white radical terrorists is racist.

WASHINGTON (AP) - By claiming that Democrat Barack Obama is "palling around with terrorists" and doesn't see the U.S. like other Americans, vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin targeted key goals for a faltering campaign.

And though she may have scored a political hit each time, her attack was unsubstantiated and carried a racially tinged subtext that John McCain himself may come to regret.

UPDATE - The AP has changed the title of the above story from “Analysis: Palin’s words carry racial tinge” to: Analysis: Palin’s words may backfire on McCain.

UPDATE Again - it seems Team McCain has put the kibosh on pointing out the failed Frannie and Freddie belongs to the Dems for fear of being labeled racist. Too late, John! They are already doing so and will continue no matter what you say and despite the fact there is absolutely no merit to it whatsoever. As Patterico points out, simply questioning The One is racist by definition, so throw caution to the wind and start hammering Camp Obama on this! Do you want win or what? If so, nothing and I mean nothing is off limits - all his unsavory aquaintences to include Reverend Right!
