Why Do Prominent Tennessee Democrats Think Obama Has Terrorist Ties?

You know, if Tennessee Democrats think Obama has terrorist ties, what are independent voters going to think?
Fred Hobbs, a state Democratic Party Executive Committee member representing part of Davis’ district, said he understands why Davis is not endorsing Obama and is “skeptical” of the Illinois senator himself.
“Maybe [it’s] the same reason I don’t want to — I don’t exactly approve of a lot of the things he stands for and I’m not sure we know enough about him,” Hobbs said when asked why he thought Davis wasn’t endorsing Obama. “He’s got some bad connections, and he may be terrorist connected for all I can tell. It sounds kind of like he may be.”
Even Representative Lincoln Davis's Chief of Staff is hesitant.
His chief of staff, Beecher Frasier, said he doesn’t know for sure if Obama is “terrorist connected” but he assumes he’s not.
Holy cow this year is going to be so much fun.
Harold Ford, Jr., by the way, has repudiated Beecher Frasier's statement (Frasier was Ford's campaign manager in 2006) and the Tennessee Democratic Party has smacked Hobbs.
But the damage is done.
Oh, and Obama does have ties to terrorist Bill Ayers and has ties to a number of people with very questionable backgrounds and affiliations.
Let's see how the anti-smear site handles this. I can't wait for them to classify Bill Ayers as anything but a terrorist.
