October 9, 2008: For first time, McCain raises Ayers (Politico)

  • "That's not the point," McCain continued. "The point is Sen. Obama said he was just a guy in the neighborhood. We know that's just not true. We need to know the full extent of the relationship because of whether Sen. Obama is telling the truth to the American people or not. That's the question."
  • "Barack Obama hasn't told the American people the total truth about that, about his association with Ayers," Palin said. "Doggone it, he fails to tell the American people with candor and with truthfulness what his associations are and we have to know."
