homegrown 1960s terrorist group the Weatherman. A lagging stronghold in key swing states like Virginia has forced the campaign on the defensive. On Thursday, a poll by Public Policy Polling of Raleigh, North Carolina showed Obama making gains among white voters in Virginia.
During a campaign a stop over the weekend in Lakeville, Minnesota, McCain met a crowd of boos after being forced to defend Obama during a town hall event. One woman told the senator: “I can’t trust Obama…He’s an Arab.”
McCain responded, “No ma’am, he’s a decent family man – citizen – that I just happen to have differences with on fundamental issues.”
These desperate measures by McCain’s struggling campaign are working against him. He is now defending Obama against misinformation put out by his own camp. One can only imagine how much lower the campaign will stoop in these final days of the election.
