It was a beautiful day in St. Louis.
The arch grounds were packed with thousands of supporters to hear Barack Obama talk about hope, change and socialism.
The crowd loved it:
Meanwhile… News surfaced today that Bill Ayers, the “guy who lived down the street from me”, just happened to share an office with Barack Obama in Chicago.
More… John McCain responded to Barack Obama’s speech today–
During the event Barack Obama defended his economic plan to issue tax credits to Americans that pay zero income tax in the first place:
“Barack Obama would give tax cuts to Americans who don’t pay any income taxes – it’s a policy Democrats used to call welfare, what Barack Obama calls ‘spreading the wealth around,’ and what Joe the Plumber calls socialism.” —Tucker Bounds, spokesman McCain-Palin 2008
