Really? Then maybe you can dig up a tenous link between Obama and the UniBomber to help him win the green vote in 2012.

You haven't a clue.

You obviously cannot connect the two. His bombing was his method of protest.

Doesn't need to the Unibomber was unpopular with all. Remember:
BBC ON THIS DAY | 15 | 1969: Millions march in US Vietnam Moratorium
The Peace Moratorium is believed to have been the largest demonstration in US history with an estimated two million people involved.

How many of those millions were reminded by the Wingnuts anti Ayers campaign of where and who they were then? How many of those still living millions voted Obama?

Peace 08

Those who support children for President not those who bomb them

A clue follows:
The Blue Voice

No one has ever seen Barack Obama engaging in, encouraging or in any way supporting a violent political action of this type. Just reading the article makes that clear to anyone whose brain hasn't been pickled in OxyContin.

No one was injured in the bombing. And it was clear that the WU did not intend to injure anyone. They phoned in a bomb warning before the blast was set to explode.
The WU had engaged in a series of bombings of the same type, all aimed at facilities they took to be symbols of bad acts of American imperialism.
The State Department bombing was specifically described as a protest against continuing aid to the governments of South Vietnam and Cambodia, which the WU claimed were violations of the Paris Peace Accords.

Can you elaborate, so I actually have something to answer, perhaps?

I'm not defending his actions in the '60s, merely putting them in the context of the times. While I wouldn't condone some of the actions I believe anyone who opposed the Vietnam War was correct.

What was truly irrelevant was Palin's whing about Obama's alleged ties.

What's obvious is the people who claim Ayers stated he wishes he'd done more bombing cannot supply any factual evidence of their allegations.
