More on Barack Obama's associations with domestic terrorist Bill Ayers from The Politico.
The article says that Ayers was persona non grata at a liberal educators’ conference in 2006. Yet it seems Obama has no reservations about being involved with him.
Dr. Young and another guest, Maria Warren, described it similarly: as an introduction to Hyde Park liberals of the handpicked successor to Palmer, a well-regarded figure on the left.
“When I first met Barack Obama, he was giving a standard, innocuous little talk in the living room of those two legends-in-their-own-minds, Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn,” Warren wrote on her blog in 2005. “They were launching him — introducing him to the Hyde Park community as the best thing since sliced bread.”
Hmmm. If an unrepentant domestic terrorist who planted bombs in the U.S Capitol, the Pentagon and other government buildings--and still believes "I didn't do enough"--thinks Barack Obama is "the best thing since sliced bread," what does that say about Obama?
I wouldn't help launch the political career of anyone who believed significantly differently than I did; can we reasonably expect that Bill Ayers would?
I also wouldn't go over to someone's house for a meet-and-greet, serve on the board of a group they created and work with them on other projects if their ideology and their feelings about their country were significantly different than mine; can we reasonably expect that Barack Obama would?
Would you vote for someone who would pal around and work with Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh?
