McCain Calls on Obama To Apologize For Ayers

John McCain, in a just completed call with bloggers, demanded that Barack Obama apologize for his relationship with domestic terrorist Bill Ayers.

“I think not only a repudiation, but an apology for ever having anything to do with an unrepentant terrorist is due the American people,” McCain said.

McCain also said he was offended by Obama’s comments in last week’s Democratic debate for comparing Weather Underground member Ayers to Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, because Obama disagrees with Coburn’s staunch anti-abortion views.

“I’m a bit surprised there hasn’t been more discussion about the comparison Sen. Obama made about an unrepentant terrorist, and that’s what Mr. Ayers is, and a great American citizen who goes back to Oklahoma on the weekends to deliver babies,” McCain said. “I’m offended by a comparison to a man like Tom Coburn.”

While “Tom Coburn may be many things to people who are on the liberal side of the ledger,” McCain said, he isn’t the same as somebody who an unrepentant member of an organization that was responsible for bombings and killings.

He said the issue deserves more discussion in the media.
