Obama "Ayers" Again In His Choice Of Friends

Thought the Rev. Jeremiah Wright was the worst person in B. Hussein Obama's past? Bzzzzz... Wrong. Thank you for playing though.

I'm sure you've heard of William Ayers of the terrorist group the Weather Underground. They were a violent 1960s radical leftist group that declared war on the United States and carried out several terrorist attacks on government buildings. Mr. Ayers is unrepentant of those acts and doesn't "want to discount the possibility" of doing it again.

Obama's campaign has admitted Barry and Bill have a "friendly relationship" but no one wants to discuss it in detail...
As Bloomberg News reported recently, Obama and Ayers have crossed paths repeatedly in the last decade. In 1997, Obama cited Ayers' critique of the juvenile justice system in a Chicago Tribune article on what prominent Chicagoans were reading. He and Ayers served together on the board of the Woods Fund of Chicago for three years starting in 1999. In 2001, Ayers also gave $200 to Obama’s state Senate reelection campaign.

Many details of the 1995 meeting are shrouded by time and by Obama's and Ayers' refusals to discuss it.

The exact date is not known, but it was in the second half of 1995, before Palmer's decision — late in her losing congressional primary against Jesse Jackson Jr. — to jump back into the special election for her state Senate seat. (Her decision produced a rift between her and Obama, who was able to get her thrown off the ballot on technical grounds.)

"That's too long ago — that's ancient history," Palmer said, when asked of the meeting.

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."

Contacted by e-mail, Warren declined to describe the meeting further and later blogged of her concern that Republicans would use accounts of the event for "left-baiting."
A major candidate for President of the United States cannot refuse to address - or better yet, publicly and clearly repudiate - people or causes like Ayers or the Rev. Wright. Obama's refusal to do so says a lot more about him than anything he does say. How many more things need to add up before people start to catch on to how much of a radical leftist Obama is? "Change" indeed...
