IBD NEWS: Talk Turns To Jive About Ayers
Original post made by Sharon, Midtown, on Oct 10, 2008
You'd think a graduate of Columbia University and Harvard Law School would have known that the actions of America's premier terrorist bomber did not, due to tainted evidence, result in a single day of prison time. So just when and where did he think Bill Ayers was rehabilitated?
And just when and where did Obama learn about "this reprehensible act"? He does not say. But when you meet someone for the first time and end up in his house as he hosts your first fundraiser, isn't it customary to inquire about his background?
Michelle Obama was asked about the relationship on "Larry King Live" on Thursday. "I don't know anyone in Chicago who is heavily involved in education policy who doesn't know Bill Ayers," she said. Or his background?
When Obama did find out, and learned Ayers did not regret his deeds, the savvy and politically ambitious Obama should have dropped him like the plague. Instead, he lied (and that's the only word for it) about their relationship. ......
The claim that Barack Obama did not know who Ayers was when he launched his political career in Ayers' living room is bogus. Ayers was a player in Chicago's radical left politics. So was Obama, who has a problem with the truth.
