McCain campaign consultant Patrick Hynes sends this along:
Another point to make about the Ayers connection is that in addition to it being an error of judgment, the Obama campaign’s reaction to the recent flood of news has transformed it into a question of honesty.
Instead of just coming clean about the nature of the relationship between Sen. Obama and William Ayers, David Axelrod made the absurd claim that Obama was unaware of Ayers’ violent past. Bill Burton completely denied the established fact that Obama blurbed Ayers’ book in 1997. And Robert Gibbs refused to answer a simple question: Is it appropriate to have a professional relationship with an unrepentant terrorist?
Team Obama should just come clean about Obama’s relationship with William Ayers.
