Palin criticizes Obama's ties to Wright, Ayers

CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) -- Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is criticizing Barack Obama's ties to his incendiary former pastor and a 1960s-era radical.

In an interview in The New York Times published Monday, Palin spoke about Obama's relationship with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who made anti-American comments even though John McCain had said talk of Wright was off limits.

Palin said, "I don't know why that association isn't discussed more, because those were appalling things that that pastor had said about our great country."

At a morning rally in Florida, Palin keep up her criticism of Obama and Ayers, though this time she referred to him as a "former terrorist."
