CAMPAIGN 2008 | Chicagoans in Obama's life likely targets of McCain, GOP

SAN ANTONIO -- With increasing frequency, Republicans are taking aim at Sen. Barack Obama as Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton faces an uphill fight to keep her presidential hopes alive. And several people from Chicago connected to Obama -- with the major figure being the indicted Tony Rezko -- could provide material his foes can use.

If Obama wins the nomination, he will face an onslaught from presumptive GOP nominee Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) as well as the Republican National Committee, with a research and press operation churning out e-mails about Obama's record. Here's a look at some of the Chicago people who are already in play:

Tony Rezko...

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan...

The Rev. Jeremiah Wright...

Austan Goolsbee...

William Ayers...

For someone with such a small record politically, Hussein seems to have a long record of cavorting with undesirables.

I get all those names but Austan Goolsbe, isn’t he a Professor at the U of Chicago? It’s a Commie type name but never heard any dirt on him.

The Clintons will dig up the dirt, hand it to some shill to push out into the world - then try to blame Republicans. It's the Clinton Way.

About the only human that could mess around with people who were gutter types and not get dirt on them was Jesus and Hussein Obama is no Jesus.

I think McCain should leave attacking Hussein up to us, the American people, and the new media.
McCain needs to go out and get his crap straight first and focus on getting the issues right, then he can go after Hussein on the issues.

Simply put, Hussein’s ideas are so shoddy that McCain will have more success tearing down Obama on the issues.

Yeah, a prof of economics.

Hussein's economy go to guy.

Went to the Canadian Consul in Chicago to tell the Canadiens to forget whatever Hussein lets dribble from his mouth about NAFTA, it campaign rhetoric meant only for the ignorant American voters to lap up.
