First McCain was exposed for hiring a lobbyist for Saddam Hussein.
Then Sarah Palin's ties to the AIP were exposed.
Now Blitzer is going to talk about McCain also having ties to Acorn.

This is a good day for the Obama campaign...and will deflate the McCain campaign the day before the last debate.

What a wonderful day! Throw the hypocrisy of all those attacks on Obama right back into the face of the McCain campaign.

I'm somewhat interested in why all of this is coming out at this moment.
These issues have been around for a bit.

I think that the media might be so ticked off at the state of affairs left from the Bush maladministration that they're trying to stop this.
But why were they silent during the entire Bush administration when the big issues were before us.
Their silence created the problems we're currently facing.

Good - most people at least on here have no idea what ACORN is.

By not allowing any interviews of Palin, McCain was trying to teach CNN a lesson since they had not shown respect for Palin. Looks like CNN now does not want any McCain interviews either.
I am waiting for the fair and balanced channel's reaction. We need more reporters who expose the politicians and not just sweet talk them.

The Huffington Post had an article pointing out McCain, Tim Pawlenty, Mitt Romney, Charlie Crist - others, there's a small thread that links to it here, from this morning - all have done business with ACORN. It's been so demonized, that's its own fault but still people dont bother to look into what it's really about. A big photo of McCain at an ACORN presentation (I think it was).

I've said it before--it's a big mistake to tick off the media right before an election.

How odd. CNN hasn't even reported Obama's links to ACORN thoroughly. Ooops, wait a minute -- that's not odd. It is CNN, after all. Every morning since the primaries began, Wolfe, Cafferty and Co. have been consulting with the Obama campaign on how to best promote the Messiah every day.

I flipped it onto FoxNews for a few minutes and they had an economist on there that liked most of Obama's plan to let people take money out of their IRAs and then he called McCain's new plan "mealy-mouthed", lmao...it's coming at them from even Fox News.
