I wish the tone of this campaign were different and it might have been if Obama had accepted McCain’s offer months ago to do 10 town hall meetings around the country. But Obama chose otherwise. His problem is that he is trying to portray himself as something he is not (moderate and mainstream) while portraying McCain as something he is not (out of touch and uncaring).
One can be known in part by the company one keeps. William Ayers is not somebody who just did evil things when Obama was eight years old.
They have an adult relationship and Ayers has been a booster of Obama’s and they have worked together on “education issues” in Chicago.
Let’s have some perspective here. What do you suppose the mainstream media reaction would be had McCain been associated with an abortion clinic bomber? You know what it would have been. The big media would be editorializing that McCain was not fit to be president. But Obama can associate with a man who belonged to Weatherman, a Communist-driven splinter faction of Students for a Democratic Society. Characterizing Weatherman as “an American Red Army,” Ayers summed up the organization’s ideology as follows: “Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, Kill your parents.” He has never apologized for those remarks or said he has a different world view today.
As recently as 2001, Ayers said America makes him “want to puke.” Nice. Check the article in full below:
Finally, we may hear what we have known during the campaign. Will the MSM sugarcoat his connections with terrorists? Will anything besides the Ayers Dohrn connection be mentioned? Will it be brought up about his Communist/ Marxist Mentors? Will the financial connections be revealed? Will his ‘truth squads’ intimidation tactics be revealed? Will Acorn connection -Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac not to mention voter fraud come up? Will his Alinski style community organizing methods he studied and practiced be brought up? There is so much and too much to go into here but I seriously doubt if they get beyond the tip of the iceberg.
Whether or not the American people believe the Media Spin or what we who longed for this to come out long ago is not so much the point here. The point is that whichever story they believe..The Obama Spin along with the Media who is mesmerized with him…they will at least have no excuse. I am sure his associations will be minimized by the talking heads of the Obama campaign- the liberal left and the Media. I would be shocked if they finally jumped on this. There are 3 video’s below: one with Dohrn speaking about overthrowing capitalism as late as 2007, one a study of Obama’s roots in Marxism, and Qaddafi speaking.
Glenn Reynolds argues that whatever befall, the Obama-Ayers issue has now crept onstage. But where exactly might this issue lead? One of Glenn’s readers has flipped the question and argues that the real question isn’t what drew Obama to Ayers, but what drew Ayers to Obama. “Here is the thing that eats at me. What did Ayers see in him? … Dorhn, Ayers, Wright all saw something in Obama that made them want to be with him and promote him? These are not people who like promoting pro-America candidates.”From Pajamas Media
Listen to the wife of Bill Ayers..the SDS terroists who once bombed the pentagon and so sorry they did not do a better job as late as 2001.
OBAMA: Bernadine Dohrn Overthrowing Capitalism 2007
Now listen to the background of Obama-Mama was a Marxist?
Listen to Libya’s Qaddafi’s words about Obama
excerpt:from Chesler Chronicles -The Genial Warrior versus the Ivy League Messiah
I do not like the people whom Senator Obama has chosen to work with and who his supporters, well hidden by the mainstream media, really are: the Chicago political machine, Tony Rezko, Weatherman-turned-educational philanthropist, Bill Ayers, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, the Nation of Islam, alleged Saudi funders, George Soros, lawyers who represent CAIR, etc. I don’t like it when Obama denies his connections, pretends he is a Cosmic Change Artist, when he is merely… an exceptionally charismatic and hard-working politician, very much in touch with the media, music, and internet of his generation.
Now, as for Senator John McCain:Even with the disagreements I have with him. I find him one amazingly genial warrior. He comes across as likable, experienced, heroic. I like how he sounds about Israel–and about Iran and Al-Qaeda. He and Palin “get” the jihadic-terrorist-nuclear threat better than their opponents do. I admit it, I’ve had it with those who believe that we can and must sit down, lie down, get down with intractable enemies, that there is still time to do so.
I think we’re running out of time. And I don’t think that we can use traditional diplomacy with groups like Hezbollah, Hamas, or Al-Qaeda. It won’t work. And, just as Europe has been Islamified, (and in a bad way), so, too, does civilian America stand at risk of being attacked again….and again; seeing its intelligentsia and its mainstream media turn more and more people against their own country, so much so that they don’t notice being taken over by “soft jihad.” Saudi funded pro-Islamist conferences are proliferating at our universities. American publishers, including Random House, are refusing to publish the truth about Islam lest their offices be bombed and their staffs attacked. Horrifyingly, they are not wrong. The potential London publisher of The Jewel of Medina, whose publication Random house canceled, has just had his London home fire-bombed; he himself is now under police protection. He has temporarily suspended publication.
