Aside from that what is wrong with working in either of these organizations.

They were his political advisors!! He has also had real estate dealings with Tony Rezko (criminal) in the not to distant past.
These are RECENT friends of Obama. This concerns me!! Who else is he friends with? He has lied so many times about these connections and we have facts about each one of them. How can you possibly trust this person?
exactly. he is the biggest crook in politics.

Do you think that the book may be a timely account of the juvenile court system? Have you read it?

If the book is so great, he should have exhibited some admiration toward Ayers and let the whole country know what a gifted writer he is.

Barack Obama, who has consistently downplayed his relationship with William Ayers during his presidential campaign, once gave a glowing endorsement of a book by the former domestic terrorist and was mentioned by name in the book itself.
This is the exact point!!!

I personally don't care who Obama is friends with, what church he goes to, or any aspect of his personal life. All I really care about are the issues, and what he'll do as a president. That goes across the board for all politicians, in my personal opinion. So, all this talk about Ayers is quite silly in my opinion. In this election, out of everyone running, I most closely identify with Obama when it comes to policies.

Interesting article and especially about Ayers wife.

Allies in War

Dorhn incited the assembled radicals to join the war against "Amerikkka" and create chaos and destruction in the "belly of the beast." Her voice rising to a fevered pitch, Dohrn raised three fingers in a "fork salute" to mass murderer Charles Manson whom she proposed as a symbol to her troops. Referring to the helpless victims of the Manson Family as the "Tate Eight" (the most famous was actress Sharon Tate) Dohrn shouted:

Dig It. First they killed those pigs, then they ate dinner in the same room with them, they even shoved a fork into a victim’s stomach! Wild!

Embarrassed today by this memory, but unable to expunge it from the record and unwilling to repudiate her terrorist deeds, Dorhn resorts to the lie direct. "It was a joke," she told the sympathetic Times reporter, Dinitia Smith; she was actually protesting America’s crimes. "We were mocking violence in America. Even in my most inflamed moment I never supported a racist mass murderer." In 1980, I taped interviews with thirty members of the Weather Underground who were present at the Flint War Council, including most of its leadership. Not one of them thought Dohrn was anything but deadly serious. Outrageous nihilism was the Weatherman political style. As soon as her tribute to Manson was completed, Dohrn was followed to the Flint platform by another Weather leader who ranted, "We’re against everything that’s ‘good and decent’ in honky America. We will loot and burn and destroy. We are the incubation of your mothers’ nightmares."
