Reports have the calls being made to voters in Wisconsin, New Mexico,Virginia, Maine, Florida, Missouri,North Carolina and Pennsylvania.
Hello. I'm calling for John McCain and the RNC because 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. This call was paid for by McCain-Palin 2008 and the Republican National Committee.
If you or a family member or friend is unclear about why Ayers matters, here's a brief backgrounder. It explains WHO and WHAT Obama REALLY is.
McCain Also Focusing on Obama's "share the wealth" socialism
In the wake of the Joe the Plumber confrontation with Obama, strategists like Karl Rove and Dick Morris agree that Obama is vulnerable on the issues of taxes and spending. Like his long association with Ayers, who openly proclaims his support for communism, Obama's share the wealth remark was an insight into who and what he really is. Here's more:

A while back I chatted with a University of Chicago professor who was a frequent lunch companion of Obama's. This professor said that Obama was as close to a full-out Marxist as anyone who has ever run for president of the United States. Now, I tend to quickly dismiss that kind of talk as way over the top. My working assumption is that Obama is firmly within the mainstream of Democratic politics. But if he is as free with that sort of redistributive philosophy in private as he was on the campaign trail this week, I have no doubt that U of C professor really does figure him as a radical. And after last night's debate, a few more Americans might think that way, too. McCain's best line: "Now, of all times in America, we need to cut people's taxes. We need to encourage business, create jobs, not spread the wealth around."
While the Real Clear Politics average (showing latest polls) still has Obama with a lead outside the margin of error, a raft of new polls are suggesting the race may be much closer:
Diego/Hotline daily tracking poll may have Obama up by ten points, and Zogby daily may have Obama up by five, but the traditional voter model at Gallup has only a 2 point spread in Obama's favor which is matched by a similar result at AP/Yahoo poll. The truth may lie somewhere in between, but the overall trend across the board shows a tightening race with McCain gaining a point every other day or so. If that keeps up the race will soon be tied and if the trend continues, McCain will win.
Remaining undecided voters need to answer for themselves one question: as bad as you think things have gone the last eight years are you willing to gamble on an inexperienced, unproven candidate who might make things worse?
Think About It!
Remember the Carter years? Change is not always a good thing!
