Obama’s link to ’60s radical fuels new attacks

Republican John McCain’s campaign spent the weekend trying to tie the Democratic nominee to a 1960s radical. “It’s really important for Americans to start knowing who the real Barack Obama is,” vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin said Sunday in Long Beach, Calif.

“It goes to the issue of judgment,” Minnesota’s Republican Gov. Tim Pawlenty said on ABC’s This Week. “What kind of judgment would allow an unrepentant domestic terrorist to host a political event for you in his home?”

Pennsylvania’s Democratic Gov. Ed Rendell shot back: “They’re starting to do the politics of personal destruction. The American people and here in Pennsylvania, we’re not going to buy that.”

On Saturday in Carson, Calif., Palin accused Obama of “palling around with terrorists who would target their own country” and added, “This is not a man who sees America as you see America and as I see America.”
