McCain attack ads inspire violent anti-Obama rhetoric with GOP supporters
Joe Biden warned John McCain that his rhetoric about Obama being associated with a supposed terrorist was dangerous and it seems Biden was right. The mood of the hard core right in the US is becoming shrill and unsettling.
With McCain passing up the opportunity to level any tough personal shots in his first two debates and the very real prospect of an Obama presidency setting in, the sort of hard-core partisan activists who turn out for campaign events are venting in unusually personal terms.
"Terrorist!” one man screamed Monday at a New Mexico rally after McCain voiced the campaign’s new rhetorical staple aimed at raising doubts about the Illinois senator: “Who is the real Barack Obama?”
"He's a damn liar!” yelled a woman Wednesday in Pennsylvania. "Get him. He's bad for our country."
