Oh yeah, he was just a guy in the neighborhood. I can't believe some people are actually that stupid.
This stuff again?
Ayers is an unrepentant terrorist. Obama worked closely with him in Chicago when he was coming up through the political machine there. You think it's grasping at straws to show that Obama has YET ANOTHER connection to an avowed Marxist who hates this country and in fact advocated violence as a means to bring about "change"?
Oh, and by the way, you say "this stuff again" as if any of it has been refuted...which is simply not the case. Obama has made flimsy denials, then had to backtrack when his denial didn't square with fact. Might I also add, if nothing is wrong with having close political and community activist ties to an avowed marxist who believes violence is legitimate means of bringing about change, then why hide from it? Or try to minimize it?
Oh, that's right. We have to put 17 year-old-girls under the microscope to bring down Palin. THAT is what we must do! We can't investigate any of Obama's past, they're too busy rifling through everything they can find in Alaska. What, have they come up with a parking ticket there yet?
Sorry if I can't muster up the outrage here. They used to serve on a couple of boards that have to do with charities and education in Chicago. They both had their names on an education bill.
Ayers is a professor at the University of Illinois in Chicago. He's also worked with the Mayor of Chicago, Daley, on education reform. So, it's obvious the guy has his hands in quite a few things and Obama, having legislation to do with education in Chicago, has worked with the guy.
Obama has never said he agreed with what the guy did when Obama was 8. He's stated just the opposite on MANY occasions. It's not like Obama is going to terrorist rallies or cheering on terrorist activities. He happened to work with the guy on some stuff.
Again, I can't muster the outrage. Sorry.
Sorry but you are wrong. He didn't JUST serve on a "couple of boards" with him. Ayers helped Nobama in his political career as well, hosting fund raisers for him.
They are bit more cozy than you want to admit.
Yes, it is. What, do you think Obama is going to become President and then secretly fund terrorism against the United States?
What's there to refute? Nowhere has it ever been demonstrated that Obama agreed with Ayers' actions or did anything unethical himself. It's a textbook case of proclaiming guilt by association, and we've heard it all before. How many times do we have to re-hash the same stories when there's just nothing there?
If the ties are so damning, why grossly exaggerate them?
I think you'll find that I've never defended any attacks on Palin's daughter as you're currently doing with these attacks.
Not really. Still doesn't mean that Obama is a secret terrorist who is planning on blowing stuff up.
It's still a weak guilt by assocation game.
I will say however, that if 8 year old Obama was sending Ayers his allowance money as a child to fund his terrorist activities, I'll have to reconsider my stance.
I never said HE was going to do that. It calls into question his competency and his judgment to associate with known and unrepentant terrorists. Also to take financial help from one is even worse.
This has to be the most damning part of all of this.
The fact that a terrorist funds Obama is enough for me to vote McCain.
I think I've discovered the source of many of those viral "political" emails <cough... baseless slanders>... hey BigP - don't bother with the links in your future emailings... my firewall won't let me open them anyway. All kinds of blinking red lights and buzzers going off - heck I thought we were under attack from Iran, al Qaeda, or Venezuela.
sure you cant..your a diehard liberal who worships this clown at all costs
if this were a republican candidate he'd have been crucified like there was no tomorrow over this, Wright, Flager, Resco etc etc
Obama is what he is...pure southside chicago garbage politician
I wasn't born when Hitler took over.
I can muster some outrage at his doings.
Ayers is a terrorist...you are what you are....right?
Know the feeling - at work we got the Big Brother "you can't look at that!" machine running too, your <caugh... silly attempt at dodging the issue by dismissing it out-of-hand> notwithstanding.
Any liberal home?
I'm still waiting....
This topic is sooooo weak in term of it's substance. Conspiracy theories abound, but this one's a beaut.:violin:
