The right has found a convenient scapegoat for when they don't want to accept something, they blame someone else.
The Rolling Stone has also been known for doing some good investigative journalism.
A majority of people are not buying the Ayres connection because it is so exaggerated and taken out of context.
McCain was vacationing with Keating directly. They were actual good friends. Meanwhile that man fleeced senior citizens out of all of their savings.
One of the other senators is now coming out and saying that McCain's role was never scrutinized enough because he was the only one really close with Keating. The reason McCain was not censured as strongly was because he was a Representative at the time and not a senator. It wasn't because he was more innocent:http://www.politickeraz.com/evanbrow...five-fair-game
You will find no such relationship between Obama and Ayres. They didn't vacation together or spend lots of time together. As was pointed out other people sat on that board with Ayres too. Including some Republicans. Should the students who took his classes be suspect too. Or how about the bank teller where he did his banking? Ayres committed his crimes 40 years ago and then turned himself in. It is old news and most of which has been debunked. His detractors hang on it because they have no new ideas for our problems.
