Colorado telephones are ringing again on Thursday with a robocall from the McCain campaign tying Barack Obama to “domestic terrorist Bill Ayers,” whose group “killed Americans.” The robocall, labeled “the worst one yet” by TPM’s Greg Sargent, continues a McCain tactic of decrying personal attacks in public while carrying them out under the radar. It’s the second attack robocall questioning Obama’s patriotismreported in Colorado in as many days.
After announcing the call is on behalf of McCain and the Republican National Committee, the robocall continues:
“You need to know that Barack Obama has worked closely with domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, whose organization bombed the U.S. Capitol, the Pentagon, a judge’s home, and killed Americans. And Democrats will enact an extreme leftist agenda if they take control of Washington. Barack Obama and his democratic allies lack the judgment to lead our country.”
Here’s the audio of the new call from Politico’s Ben Smith:
The McCain campaign is outgunning Obama three-to-one with the inexpensive robocalls, according to The Huffington Post, with calls reported in numerous swing states, including Colorado and Michigan, North Carolina, Minnesota, Missouri, Wisconsin, Virginia and New Mexico.
