The most astute indictment of the American left and liberals I have heard this weekend, is that William Ayers, domestic terrorist, is an acceptable member of their society but Governor Palin is not. So let me get this straight, Obama picks this one book out of millions to be his favorite book at that moment and writes a complimentatry review. Both of them were experts on this topic virtue of spending time working on the same topic, at the same time and in the same jurisdiction.
Somebody has got to care about character in their President. At the time, the alarm was being raised nationally about the steep rise in violent juvenile crime, and many within the juvenile justice system had concluded rightly, i. You may remember some of the controversy at the time regarding the proper age at which to jail serious offenders. And, of course, the fact that it was really the guns that were committing all this juvenile crime, and not the people pulling the triggers.
Zombie is a good name for this blog. Just what America needs…. Oooooo, Obama will fill the White House with patriot-eating terrorists and socialists and welfare queens. You poor people are pathetic.
Take two steps back and listen objectively to yourselves. Your guilt-by-association meme is thin, grasping, and ultimately pathetic. You really need a life — any life at all would be a step up. No one is accusing HIM of being a terrorist or participating!! It was your choice though senator, to associate with Ayers after the fact. He has repeated this literally hundreds of times.
Do you really go around with your head so far up your butt that you can ignore this stuff, or do you just thing everyone else is stupid? Conservatives have those strange, convenient, dichotomous opinions. Would you not sit down with that local minister who has an outstanding reputation in the community who decades earlier had been an accomplice to some heinous crimes?
Why would you even wonder about his past? How have you fallen so far as to chastise those who would do what you do, and who follow that advice of that God you site when it is convenient for those selfish purposes of yours? Thanks so much for your research Zombie! You people seem to embrace this ignorance.
They were dropped, not because he was innocent but due to ilicit surveillance by the cops or something. This is an issue that reveals that Obama is a liar. If you want to know, I have a Ph. In order to get a Ph. And, yes, I did finish the 8th grade. Unfortunately, I had a lot of woeful Ayers-inspired public education to overcome to get where I am. I am taking an online class and my business professor called me one evening and we had a long discussion about politics and philosophy.
She remarked that it is not so surprising. Even his refusal to acknowledge patriotic symbols said that. Those responsible for the freedom we have enjoyed in some fashion for the past years understood that:. Regard not the particular sect or denomination of the candidate — look to his character….
This is for you Obamanites! This will be their great Security. Anyone who thinks that Barack Obama is serious about going after Al Qaida is living in a dream world.
My concern is that there is apparently a strong ideological connection between them which has served as the basis for their friendship. I posted that above, and others have made similar statements. Have you ever heard of forgiving???
Ayers went through OUR judicial system, paid the price and has since made a positive contribution to society. Ayers is a Professor of education. He gets it right, this is wrong.
Ayers has admitted that he is unrepentant so we cannot forgive someone that holds the same views. As far as his positive attributions, he teaches the same ideology to his students! This shows what his ideologies are. You can tell a persons character by the company he keeps. Even their wives worked together on several occasions. That is undeniably unpatriotic. George McCain is friends with G.
Gordon Liddy, accepted money from him and goes on yacht trips with hip. Gordon Liddy is a domestic terrorist. Grow up… your friends do not make you who you are. Try to see through the hype. Obama will make a good President, accept it and try to be nice. In February , Obama spokesman Bill Burton released a statement from the senator about the relationship between the two: But he was an eight-year-old child when Ayers and the Weathermen were active, and any attempt to connect Obama with events of almost forty years ago is ridiculous.
Obama was, as he has noted, just a child. No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof.
But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability. If it was up to me Bill Ayers and his wife would be executed tomorrow. They made war on the United States. They announced their intention to destroy America.
If I was running America, Barack Obama would be stripped of his citizenship and barred from ever holding public office due to his association with people like Ayers. Post 80 ought to be deleted, and the person who posted it ought to be banned from ever posting again.
I heard enough of it from the Jim Crow Democrats when I was a kid. The former comment 80 was left by an Obama supporter posing as a redneck racist — a troll, in other words. I already deleted it as well as several others leaving fake cartoonish racist comments. The issue is his views and how he will run this country. His wanting to have nationalized healthcare is just Socialism. His wanting to allow homosexuals in the military will do nothing but drop the number of voluntary recruits and weaken our military, which is fine for someone with Marxist views!!
Those from other countries that could no longer stand to live under that form of government defected here to America. Where are we going to go if we allow those policies here? Where will our escape be? Hmm, a shift from straw man arguments to tu quoque.
I prefer tu quoque because it smells like an admission of guilt. Your candidates have a couple sorta sketchy loose associations too!
So it cancels out, right?! I have a daughter who was born in Now — I suppose, so is Colin Powell, who endorsed this secret negro terrorist and America hater! Obama scribed a one-sentence review of an Ayers book — he must want to blow up the Pentagon!
Ayers sat at an educational round table with Obama — obvioulsy a conspiracy to kill whitey — or is that Why He? So — big man — go take care of business. Bill Ayers is a better man than most of his critics. Henry Kissinger was a war criminal and a thug….
The laws were later amended — but not when Johnny Mac dishonored his uniform and sold out his country…. Amazing but sad part of this whole election is that the Media will drag Obama across the finish line.
They have single handedly committed the biggest injustice to the American people. Not reporting but rather influencing. Bottom line is that Obama lies and get away with it. So is Obama lying and obfuscating about his relationship with the man. Let me make this clear to the Obamatons: I know plenty of other people who feel the same way about it, so cut it out with the idiotic straw man arguments.
William Ayers was absolutely right to bomb empty buildings. Ayers and the other war protesters were ultimately successful in driving Nixon out or his mind and out of office and ending the holocaust that murdered five million innocent Vietnamese people. All Americans owe them a moral debt that cannot be repaid.
When France refused to hold UN supervised elections, he accepted the strings of the puppet government. Read all about it at:. I am sickened and disgusted by people like you. Funny how the WeatherMansonites who experienced a work accident on Tenth Street were building antipersonnel bombs. Funny how the WeatherMansonites bombed the house of a Federal judge and his family, and only their ineptitude prevented them from murdering the lot.
How do dems do it? Such an event would have been counter-productive. If innocent people were killed in the USA, the blame belongs to those who initiated or supported an unjust war.
If anyone believes the war against Vietnam was just, they should show where ex-Secretary of Defense Robert MacNamara was wrong in his opinion to the contrary. The Weathermen continued their bombings long after the US was out of Vietnam—and did not even pretend, at the time, to use the Vietnam war as a justification.
It is a lie to say that the Weathermen did not kill people with their bombs; it is a lie to say that they did not intend to kill people, and would not have killed more had they been able to. And, if indeed the Weatherman could claim to have had a hand in getting they US out of Indochina, then they share responsibility for the millions murdered by Pol Pot after the US had withdrawn.
Give it up, Marvin: He was a Manson wannabe. And if he were what you say he was, then he is a worse criminal still for his complicity in enabling the murder of millions of Asians. You are conflating Ayers with the Weathermen. Are you responsible for every criminal act committed by any Republican anywhere, anytime? An individual is responsible only for his own acts.
Re Pol Pot, google that name to find out that the US supported his regime and that his regime was destroyed by an invasion by … Communist Vietnam! Sussman, Ayers did bomb buildings even after the US was out of the war. So yes, he would have bombed buildings even if the war did not exist. The communiques that William Ayers and his appalling wife issued to justify their bombings did not reference the war in their later years of activity.
The Weathermen were a murder cult just as much as the Manson Family. Ayers, as one of its leaders, is responsible for its actions just as much as Charles Manson is responsible for the actions of his followers. The notion that Ayers could not be a murderous thug merely because he was born to wealth is stupid.
The French Revolution, the Communist revolutions, the Islamist terrorist organizations, have all been led by people born to relative privilege. I find it significant that, rather than attempting to argue that Ayers might conceivably have grown beyond his murderous past, you attempt to justify that past. That is, quite frankly, morally disgusting. The others are just trying to disingenuously obfuscate and equivocate on behalf of their savior. I went to the high-resolution image and enlarged it.
The site will be visited, perhaps two years from now, when people try to examine what went wrong with the mass news media in , when they decided to assassinate their own credibility. And with that gone, what do they have to offer the public?
Two unreprentant terrorists running around free in America, thanks to the machinations of the Bush family Jeb in particular and terrorist apologists like Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.
Obama wrote a recommendation for Ayers book. It looks to me like Ayers is trying to do good things with his life. This does nothing to worry me about Obama. If associations is your game, look at some of the nightmares McCain has truly befriended…Keating, Liddy, Reynolds, Betts, the list goes on. Can we move on to real issues instead of the stupid negaative distraction tactics of the loser McCain?
So now it all makes sense. Obama meets Ayers at Columbia. They form some sort of friendship and share ideas. Ultimately, Obama comes to Chicago because his pal Bill Ayers is here. After Ayers secures the Annenberg grant, he calls on his pal Obama to be the Finance Director without prior connections, how else could a something with no prior experience get the top job of Finance Director. He continues with the Woods Fund as well. Lets focus on the real issues, like bringing the country back out of the deep hole its in…… and no I dont Support Obama …….
Please provide a reference concerning Ayers not Weatherman activity after the end of hostilities. Re Manson, prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi did a fantastic job providing evidence tying Manson directly to the Tate and Bianca murders without his presence. By your rules of evidence, I could tie you to Larry Craig in a Minneapolis airport toilet stall.
You guys are all alike. I am still waiting for you to honestly say: He just likes to bomb buildings. Was that so difficult? Thanks for the credit, but no, thanks anyway. I presented you with an argument against all your beliefs in the form of a credible statement by a credible authority, Robert MacNamara.
You deliberately ignored the argument as though it did not exist. You are incapable of serious, intelligent argument. Read all about it at: WE ALL should care. Obama is no friend of Israel. Marvin, Ayers was a member of the Weatherman cult. He has never disavowed any of the actions of that cult—his own, or that of his fellow cultists. He walks free today only because of prosecutorial error, as he himself has admitted in print—and as he himself has admitted in print, he still holds, today, to the demented and criminal worldview of the Weatherman cult in its heyday.
That he has learned he can better further his agenda through the use of a sockpuppet candidate and willing fellow-travelers like yourself, lubricated by an appalling and unprecedented amount of money, than he can with maladroit individual bombings, is no cause for comfort.
Coulda-mighta is a dicy game to play, but it would by no means surprise me. The Unabomber—like Ayers, an educated whackjob—managed to concoct his own demented rationale for murder and mayhem.
There is no reason to presume that Ayers could not, or would not, have done the same. It is, however, a moot point; Ayers did become one of the founders and leaders of a bomb cult, which used the war for its initial excuse—and then used other excuses when that other excuse was not ready to hand. Obama does not deny knowing William Ayers. Obama does not deny knowing that Ayers was in the Weatherman. He reviewed a book Ayers wrote on an important topic — the juvenile justice system.
Obama cares about both the justice system and education. And this is bad because??? You refuse to admit it but it is true. Ayers bombed buildings only because of the holocaust being perpetrated with his taxes because it was a moral obligation to stop an unjust war.
He had no other reason to bomb buildings. In , Marlene Dietrich was booed off the post-war Berlin stage by a Nazi audience. Today she is admired by the younger generation. It takes about 60 years for a new generation to see the facts without prejudice.
Ayers is a hero in the same sense that Pastor Bonhoeffer, executed by Hitler for doing what Ayers did, is a hero throughout Germany today. You are incapable of arguing the question of justice. Go back to and tell me that you are smarter than MacNamara, that you know more about Vietnam and are more of a patriot. Try to use your potential for rational discussion. Obama initially denied knowing Ayers any more than casually.
The issue is that Ayers gave Obama his political start; he hired Obama to distribute the Annenberg money that Ayers had scored; he worked with Obama to give away money on the Woods Foundation.
Now, nobody hires someone to give away millions they have scored from a grant proposal unless they are damned sure that the person they are hiring will use the money as they want it used. But you are lying to yourself by refusing to see the connections here.
I have many associates who share far differing beliefs than my own. Most of my current coworkers are die hard neocons. I am very liberal. The company I joined has gotten me onto my feet in my industry and I often associate with my coworkers outside of work. But I would never associate myself with their backwards conservative point of view. Many of my professors and peers in college were of varying political affiliation, as well. Our ideals are polar opposites but I consider him a notable mentor in my life.
Palin and McCain both have associated themselves with people who are far from savory, as well. The magnitudes of these relationships differ only slightly, and if you would like to make it a game of associations, we can.
I considered voting for McCain because, before this whole election took place, he was a moderate conservative with a number of good ideas and a strong backbone. I still like McCain. I just feel bad that he has become associated with the unsavory Christian right wing fundamentalists. This is not what America is about.
This is not what our troops are sacrificing their lives to defend. This type of fear mongering is going to destroy our country. We are already half way there. Yeah, I saw it war hero. He was the founder and leader of a bomb cult which did not cease its activities with the end of US involvement, and he still holds the same anti-American views.
You have not addressed that; indeed, you cannot, for if you did you would have to recognize that you are taking a morally indefensible position. Even if one granted that US involvement in Vietnam were wrong—a highly debatable proposition in itself—the bombings engaged in by the Weatherman bomb cult were the acts of homicidal lunatics who could not, in any rational moment, have believed that their murderous tantrums would have any effect on the course of the war.
To defend them as you do indicates that you are suffering from a triple disconnect from reality—first, your unexamined assumption that the Vietnam war was self-evidently wrong; second, that the bombings were an appropriate, effective, or even remotely justificable response to it; third, that any sane morality motivated the Weatherman bomb cult.
Ayers is no hero; he is a criminal free only because American justice is fairer than he would ever be were he, G-d forbid, to have a chance to administer justice. Marlene Dietrich actually was a hero; she stood up for justice and sanity at a time when she had a lot to lose by doing so. Comparing her to William Ayers, as you do, is foul and dishonest. As to McNamara, he—like Obama, and like Ayers—is a showpiece for the fact that intelligence is no substitute for moral perspective.
McNamara may have come to regret, in retrospect, the hubris of the decisions he made in his youthful pride in his intelligence, but that does not mean that his later analysis, any more than his earlier analysis, is correct. No mention of names or instances. Trying to figure out what the newsworthy angle is here. Are you kidding me? At the time the book was being written, Obama was well known as the author of a successful and well-reviewed autobiography.
He was also running for the state legislature at the time he was elected by the time the book went into print. The fact that they served on those public panels and boards is not a secret. No one else seemed to have a problem serving or working with Ayers at the time. Has Obama publicly embraced Ayers and his political background since Ayers published his memoirs in and gave his interview to the New York Times?
It says alot about the focus of the public. Not if he and Ayers gave money to radicals and racists, which they did. Which means that lifetime Republican Leonore Annenberg must have been sure that William Ayers shared her goals and would use the money as she wanted it used. No sane, rational American can seriously believe that an inexperienced radical sockpuppet and plagiarizing blowhard can competently run the Executive Branch. We can get along quite well without being loved by the international socialist crowd.
It creates division and hate and is unnecessary for a productive democracy. Obama has lied during his campaign. McCain has lied to. Make it about what matters most to our country and what each politician brings to the table. If you want to cut him off because he downplayed an association that meant very little to save his image and help himself get elected then you should probably never vote for anyone ever again. Because that would make you a hypocrit.
You clearly know little about the art of writing grants, which involves making pernicious goals sound laudable. If you think we should further alienate our allies and play a game of war then join the military. I am tired of self-blinded fools who do not recognize that the Islamic world has been at war with us for over thirty years ; for forty years, if you count the murder of Robert Kennedy. Let me just say that it sounds that you are educated on your opinion and that pleases me.
I do disagree with the focus of our current election and that is caused by an obviously differing world view. The great thing about this country is that most citizens are taking this election so seriously. I apologize for coming off abrasive before. I do plenty of both, thank you.
And I am well aware that there are plenty of overeducated socialists who are dying to bring the US down to their level. Of course, when disaster hits, they come running and whining to the US to bail them out, then spit on the helping hand they invariably get.
There are plenty sneaking into Europe, and they are sending it down the tubes. You still have not presented evidence that Ayers bombed any building after hostilities.
You must be afraid to google the available information for fear that you will find yourself to be mistaken. I presented you with a whole book of heartfelt examination by the ultimate authority on the question. Nobody has examined the question more thouroughly. The evidence is in the book, not in my head. You have proven yourself incapable of logical argument, the only faculty that separates man from animals.
You are unworthy of human company. Slobber in you filth. You are an ass. A duplicitous, evasive, and therefore boring ass. And, by your gay-baiting, at least a borderline homophobe on top of that. Is there anything in the book that you find objectionable? We now know that Obama worked closely with Ayers for many years on education reform issues and he should have known that Ayers was an Education professor…not an English professor.
It dawned on me that it might have been a Freudian slip. It seems odd to me that he would make that slip-up…unless he was distracted thinking about Ayers primarily as a writer, and primarily as the writer of his supposed autobiography. Obama and Ayers are two peas in a pod. Was it hard to write? This is still the best you can do? He read a book? That this is what the McCain campaign has bet everything, and I mean everything, on?
This is the big scandal? To somehow divert our attention away from Keating, Liddy, robocalls, and a certain governor who is a flat out liar and supporter of domestic terrorists herself? Imagine you are sharing a house with many other people.
But you are the rich one. You hog the couch, you have your OWN fridge, you overeat, you are loud and belch alot, you think your views are the only ones that are valid, and you greedily consume so much more of the things needed for daily survival than many others.
Sure, at times you have a kind streak and — and you help others out — usually when it is to your advantage — and you overlook some who are being abused when it is not. If someone has something you want — you just go into their room and take it. And you keep others from taking things from the rooms of those who pledge loyalty to you. Basically, you are an arrogant, self obsessed, overwieght, greedy, bigoted ass. No wonder no one likes you. And of course you are blind to that fact — how could anyone not like you??
You are the model of perfection! Gratz to the winner of the Grasping at Straws Award! Yes, I get the point. It is also, however, the most modest and self-effacing rich and powerful nation in the history of the world. It buys things—and sells things. We pay for the oil we use; for the plastic junk we buy from China; for the grapes we buy from Chile and the tomatoes we import from Mexico. People want to sell these things to us, because that way they make money, under the terms of their own economies.
Maybe the guy has good ideas about education reform. Ever think of that, wingnut geniuses? Most are geographically illiterate. Thinks the world stops at their small and frightened borders. The alleged recipients seem to have been some radical schools, which by all available accounts taught some extremely radical things to defenseless kids.
Yet Obama says damn near nothing. Yet Obie pretends he knew nothing. But what is also true is that Obama is surrounded by hundreds of advisors including Mayor Daley of Chicago who was born in and was 27 years old when the Ayers bombings started in and 33 years old when the bombings stopped in In fact Mayor Daley states that he knew about Ayers.
He worked with me in shaping our now nationally renowned school reform program. You guys have eaten them all. Charges against Ayers were dropped. You might argue that Adolph Hitler never was found guilty by trial of anything. I still wretch violently when evil is confronted directly and the defenders and creators of the evil young male fatherless blacks ask where did he get the gun.
How does this make a difference? What this means is that Barack Obama aligns himself with Ayers philosophically. Ayers is a radical in education and Obama has some radical ideas as well and has praised Ayers for his. Obama is a socialist in his philosophy. I wish that those that want a socialist government would just leave America and go live under it somewhere else.
Why are there no questions as to how an average student, which is what Obama was, got into Columbia and then, with only average performance at Columbia, got into Harvard Law School? Who were the powerful ones who made this possible? Who are the ones Obama is now indebted to? My hope and faith in this country is put there by the bright and knowledgeable people who take the time to comment on sites like this. Just when I get in a down feeling.. I come across a site like RealClearPolitics and read the comments of lots of fine Americans.
Thank you for taking the time to educate yourselves about the democratic candidate. I have been a democrat all of my 73 years and stepping out of step with this election.
In the meantime, we pay for what we consume , which is how commodities markets work. Our survival, and its quality, are safeguarded and ensured by our market and military strength, as is true for every other country in the world. Let he who is without bombs.. Sitting alone at night thinking of his bomb design prematurely exploding in the faces of his loving friends and Komrades?
Those same nails would have shredded their faces into unrecognizable pulps at that range, they would have spun and careened thru vital organs causing unimaginable pain while as they lay there slowly expiring looking at their flesh splattered on the wall if they had any eyes that is.
I mean the man was fighting for what he believed.. If you bring attention to him and his minions now.. You know that terrorists should never feel remorse. It is bad for them and their complexion.. My profound respect for Betty and other Democrats who, seeing the truth about Obama, put Country before party.
Thank you, Betty and company for standing up as proud Americans to fight for our homeland. Barack Obama, who has consistently downplayed his relationship with William Ayers during his presidential campaign, once gave a glowing endorsement of a book by the former domestic terrorist and was mentioned by name in the book itself. A blogger unearthed the Dec.
Barack, the messiah, has tried to downplay his connection to Ayers by pointing out that this short comment is not a full book review. But, in fact it is much more significant than a book review. It sounds like thery were pretty close. You are SO valuable to the pursuit of truth. Someone would out you, jeopardizing both your identity preventing infiltration into the bell of the beast and probably your life, from the advocates from the advocates of peace tolerance.
Ken Adelman is a lifelong conservative Republican. In recent years, Adelman and his friends Cheney, Rumsfeld, and Wolfowitz fell out over his criticisms of the botching of the Iraq War. Ken Adelman intends to vote for Barack Obama. Surely, they did not just knock on doors in Hyde Park until they found someone who read the book. Because, you morons, Ayers and the weather underground committed many violent acts not even related to the war.
Furthermore, as an offshoot of the SDS, the W. And you really show your ass with your imbecilic parroting of claims the weathermen never tried to kill anyone. When three of their members were killed while trying to build an anti-personnel bomb at a Greenwich Village safehouse, what the hell do you think the nails that tore through THEIR bodies were meant to do?
Read his Fugitive Days for a very illuminating look into the mind of the truly sick, unrepentent terrorist who helped to shape the mind of Obama. Russia went into Georgia to take out the drones and the airfield that Israel used to keep track of Iran…. Daley and Ayers, the juniors, were also close friends as children.
Both sets of parents were disgusted by their sons. Let it marinate a while in your gray matter. He gambled and picked a moron and now you are going to lose.
All of this indoctrination was by design, from 30 years ago, and the product is a crop of Obamatons, marching to the beat of Socialism. The function of socialism is to raise suffering to a higher level. Who sang this one? Who can take a surplus turn it into debt. No googling here, moron — check the time stamps. Ahem, your analcephalo-pathology is showing, and man you not only read funny, you look like you are having anal sex with yourself using your head as an instrument of penetration. Like I said gymnast — you have bigger problems than me and my — wow what a big word for a ten year old… your team just pulled out of MI, WI and is now conceding CO.
Your unvetted VP pick is getting hammered in her own state and may face a recall vote by November. Her favorable ratings are tanking due to her fascist tendencies in public. Online Reviewer Ordinary Citizen zombietime. NOW… watch what happens as this news starts making it into the public eye. Wanna talk about REAL past relationships? All but two of the contributions came in July, and all but three of those July donations were logged on July 31, suggesting they were delivered at the same time.
Good work, although those of us not already caught up in the Obama hysteria did not need convincing. Still, fat chance of getting any attention to this from the mainstream media. Ahem hocker…those who turned this economy upside down…the Dems who have been in power for two years. Fannie Freddie affirmative action housing given to us by the Dems and only the Dems. The FBI must have a thick file on Ayers since they have surely been monitoring him for 30 years.
When they monitor him, they monitor his acquaintances. Even keating knows a socialist when he sees one. Hope hes got a few more bucks for John. Also regarding the map…remember Kerry was a whooping Bush in in the polls and map about this time too. Is it just me or does that BO photo strongly resemble OJ?
America, get ready to have your throats slashed! This is just a thought I have been having? That song is getting old. The man, who is half white, is a socialist plain and simple and wants to take Americans down that path. Socialism has never worked in ANY country it has been tried.
And for those who would prefer socialism there are still some countries they could move to rather than changing this one! And when a group wants to change this, it all of a sudden is socialism?
Hey, in case you missed it, it has been 2, days since Bush declared Mission Accomplished. Obama is not a dummy, He may think that you are, but I assure you he is not.
With that in mind lets go back a few years, We live in Chicago, we have Degrees from some of the best Ive League Universities, and we aspire to be in local politics, with an end coal of National Politics. At present, we are involved in community organizations, that put forward both political and educational opportunities for Mid Low to Low Income Families. Several of our co-workers have been talking about how good we are as organizers and that we should run for State Office.
Over a period of time, we research possibilities and decide to run for office. We speak with associates and form a committee to introduce us to the public and start our campaign. The kick-off will be at the home of William Ayers. Ayers has worked with us on various committees and is well know by our friends.
Chesa Boudin who was awarded a Rhodes Scholarship. She was caught at a roadblock trying to escape and is doing concurrent, long prison bits. I love this argument. Can you NOT see the entire picture Ken? Ayers, Acorn, Resco, Wright, etc. If Obama had ONE friend of questionable nature, you could possibly write him a pass.
But, when he has these and growing evidence of his connections to Ayers, it no longer becomes something you can overlook. Have you ever wondered why?
Picking Palin was the poor judgment you should be angry about because she is dragging down the ticket — you know and so does everyone else.
I hope that repeating these absurd GBA charges from 20 words and inanely trying to make something of it makes the hurt go away but….
Once Ayers and Dohrn and other members of the Weathermen are brought to trial for treason, convicted and executed. Once the careers of Barack Obama and other supporters and partners of the Weathermen traitors are utterly destroyed, and Barack Obama has as much credibility and political viability as David Duke…. Follow the numbers — see if you can connect the dots!!
Do you see McCain saying how bad their judgment is?? Even Dan Quayle, with whom Mrs. Palin is often compared because of her age and inexperience on the national scene, was not viewed as negatively in the campaign. FNC has it on the rolling screen this a. First, instead of playing into this Rove-inspired trip to the Twilight Zone, lets ask a question of logic:.
Demands she dissolve and step down from leadership of ultra-leftist radical Annenberg Challenge and donate all proceeds to failing GOP political fund. Michele brought Ayers and Barack together. She organized the panel with the two of them on it. I have always thought that Barack is actually more of a pliable follower than a real leader.
He seesm like a guy who just wants to be loved by the entire world…. And to the libs commenting here. We know how old Obama was when Ayers was active and that is a specious argument. The question is do birds of a feather flock together? I think the answer is obvious to anyone who actually wants to think about it. The deniers are fooling no one but themselves. You see how easy this is? Oh by the way—John McCain personally bombed a lot of people, and associated with many other people who caused the deaths of thousands of people with their bombing.
He is referred to as Frank and this could be only one person. Frank Marshall Davis, a card carrying communist who mentored Obama during his teen years in Hawaii. We certainly live in crazy times if everything we say has be proved in such a way so as to avoid the truth being eradicated. Furthermore, if Islam is a peaceful religion and the Democrats have no problems with Islam and its adherents and if there is nothing in the constitution that prohibits a Muslim being President of the USA, why is Obama going to such lengths to deny his birthright as a Muslim even if in the end he decided to become a Christian?
Why is the Democratic party going to such lengths to deny his past as a Muslim? The comments are funnnnny! At first I thought this was sarcasm and you were anti O…. If you write something about the important need to understand the history of the period, in order to avoid it happening again, and this requires reading this stuff re: Security Clearance refused on basis of past affiliations!! Its pretty offensive when Obama lied during the debates stating he only sat on one board with Ayers.
Ayers contributed to his campaign and worked as a campaign worker in Chicago, endorsing Obama. Not only was Ayers involved, but another former Weatherman terrorist was blogging for Obama on the Obama website. After his background was revealed to the public, the Obama Campaign removed his posts. The problem is, Obama sees the rest of the nation as South Chicago and would like the rest of the nation to be like South Chicago. His widow, Leonore, has endorsed McCain.
In fact, just yesterday the McCain Campaign released its list of Ambassadors supporting him. In addition to individual contributions, Mrs. Board Member of Tribune Company. She is author of A Multitude of Blessings: Former board members include R. Many of these members are Republicans and supporters of McCain. So why is it again the Obama should be chastised for serving on Boards with William Ayers? Your attempt at using Adams as some have used Ayers shows a complete inability to distinguish between good and evil.
Saying they are the equivalent is like saying the cop who shoots a perp to save lives is the same as the perp who shoots an innocent man to steal money.
They both shoot people but they are polar opposites just like Adams and Ayers. Most people should be able to distinguish the two but maybe some like yourself cannot. On the other hand, you serve as a good example of why Obama would be a poor President, because just like you he would be unable to distinguish between good and evil.
Well Pappy, these folks like that ole timey religion here! Barack Obama, however, is just one person, not a gigantic philanthropic foundation, and he is just one person who was directly involved with Bill Ayers, and knew exactly who he was, and what he was.
If you actually want to find out a little something about Walter Annenberg, the Annenberg foundation and the connection between the Annenberg Foundation and the Annenberg Challenge, wiki has a good short article. I would suggest that you read it as a starting point for researching this issue. It is about guilt by participation. He was not merely in the same place at the same time. He was materially engaged with these people to his own substantial benefit.
Obama has gone to some lengths to deny knowing people that he has obviously been deeply involved with. It does not concern someone like you that he lies. That a man like Ayers, still pushing for a communist revolution through other means, is an accepted member of academia and Chicago high society, does not mean he is a good man.
It means there is something deeply wrong with academia and Chicago high society. Annenberg was about 85 years old when the Chicago Annenberg Challenge grant was made. That former Republican officials served somewhere in the Annenberg organization, an organization much larger than the Chicago grant, does not tell us anything useful.
Ayers is one of many problematic Obama associates. Obama embodies that problem and he will demonstrate that if he is elected. The campaign is hiding him away after his latest gaffe. He surveys the table with raised eyebrows, a How do ya like that? The staffers sit in silence.
Finally somebody ventures a response: But Joe Biden is barely listening anymore. Just like the Wright debacle the Left is trying to use strawman arguments. No one said that Obama was a terrorist, except for leftwing trolls who claim that critics of Obama are saying that.
The issue is that Obama is lying about his connection with Ayers because he is untruthfully downplaying his relationship. He claimed that Ayers is just another person in the neighborhood when they had many intimate connections and supported each other before Ayers became a liability when Obama assumed his role as a U.
Senator and began to have White House ambitions. Much like Obama lied when he said that he didnt think Rev Wright was particularly controversial and that he never heard him say hateful stuff like he was quoted in blogs. Obama wound up repudiating Rev Wright and his year church membership in exchange for his presidential ambitions as well. It appears that Obama is a new man now that he wants to be president.
As his wife said, she has never been proud of this country before!!! Obama is very dishonest. If he sincerely talked about his association with Ayers this would have never been a big deal. He could have said that he excersized bad judgment in associating with Ayers. Instead he lied and his enablers support his lies. But, as regards this tired old red herring of the memberships of the Woods and Annenberg boards: I believe these earnest morons truly do not discern the distinction between those who sit on boards, and those who write the grants and direct the funding read: And, if they pulled their heads out of their asses long enough to recognize that distinction, one other important difference might occur to them:.
Gilding the lily perhaps? Flogging a dead horse? Blood from a stone? Hold the presses- politician hides truth. As we all know, Obama was a child when Ayers was involved with the Weathermen. To draw any connection with Ayers the Weatherman bomber and Obama the president-elect is laughable. But of course the Reps have precious little else to attack him with….
William Ayers and his lovely wife are responsible for the assassinations of US Military members and police officers. They freely admit this. They are not in jail because of a technicality in the law, I believe they were not read their rights before questioned. We know that Obama has spent time with Mr. Let me be the first to tell you that if I spent time with Mr. Ayers, I would beat him on or about the head until such a time as he quit breathing.
Obama has no sense of pride in America. Those are the weapons platforms that would keep our troops safe in a time of war, and would insure our independence as a free nation. Obama is bad for America. If we elect him, we will realize it soon. At least Joe Biden thinks so. If The One was so far ahead, I doubt these deniers would waste time and energy on on trying to fuzz up, diminish, or otherwise play a moral relativism card on such a screamingly obvious case of collusion and lying.
All you little Obamabots working to make your way from the fringes of the Outer Party to the Inner Party are going to experience lots of surprises along the way. If your morals are so compromised, you may keep wallowing until well into your 80s like poor old Marvin Sussman.
Ayers, Progressive Rock Star, saw the possibilities in Obama. Trained and further vetted by Said and other Far Left faculty at Columbia, Obama returned to Chicago where Ayers had set up a cushy life as Foundation President; even finding The One an appropriately radical wife. Obama effectively dispatches the competition, no need to count votes if there is only one candidate, and the rest is history.
During this campaign, The One resorts to some NLP techniques to induce mass hypnosis in the crowds, why else did Chrissy Mathews fell that tingle up his leg. Incidentally, those easiest to hypnotize are those who describe themselves as able to easily let go of their inhibitions. Good description of you Obamabots, uninhibited. Obama is filling it for you. You truly amaze me — this artificial segmentation between left and right. So black and white. Nothing personal but…so small minded.
You are obviously the product of the american education system — so I wont hold that against you.
