I hear about that "person" on Micheal Savage and hannity and he is as Unamerican as it gets. The far left seems to love the guy though. i would love to meet him alone in an alley and kick his treasonist butt all over the place! Once again, the brainwashed on the left have no idea what they are getting themselves into supporting Obama.

The irony in this statement is almost palpable.

Of course you don't like those two. You are a liberal are you not? A liberal would never admit that conservatives are right even when they present the truth.

Unlike most of the time, when they spew nothing but bald-faced lies.

Good point.

William Ayers never served a day in prison for his crimes because Federal prosecutors botched the case. There was plenty of evidence as well as testimony that Ayers planned, facilitated and executed bombings of federal buildings in which people were working. Fortunately no innocents were killed by their bombs but damage was done. Ayers was a wild leftist-Communist radical in his youth who set out to overthrow the US government by violence. He told his followers to "go home and kill your parents and end their capitalstic lives". Some of his followers used the terms "cruel", "evil" and "sinister" in describing William Ayers. Ayer's female accomplice, Bernadette Dohrn, went into hiding and eluded capture for over 25 years, finally turning herself in. Her conviction was shortened by a Bill Clinton pardon. Today Dohrn and Ayers live in Southside Chicago where he teaches education at the University of Chicago. Asked if he regretted his violent and criminal past, Ayers scowled and retorted "I wish I had done more!".

Barack and Ayers served together on the board of the Woods Foundation a non profit philanthropic. They became friends and were frequently seen together both on the board and casually. While on the board Obama and Ayers voted to send a large amount of money to the American-Arab league. The A-A League was known to be actively involved in channeling money and supplies to Palestine terrorists.

Barack and Michelle Obama socialized with William Ayers and Bernadette Dohrn. It was in their home that fellow Southside Chicago resident Tony Rezko introduced Barack and Michelle to Iraqui born British Billionaire Nadhmi Auchi.

Auchi later lent Obama "several" million dollars according to testimony in Tony Rezko's trial. Using part of that money Obama was able to buy his Southside mansion at a greatly reduced price arranged by Tony Rezko. Rezko is known for buying politicians or having them "in his pocket" as he likes to say. Auchi has been twice convicted of bribery in his home country.

William Ayers has contributed to every campaign Obama has run in. Up until his conviction Tony Rezko contributed to Obama's campaign. Auchi made a "very large" contribution to Obama's presidential committee. When it was discovered by Federal elections officials that a foreign felon had contributed Obama's committee reluctantly returned the funds to Auchi.

They love all that hate America. Just look around at our enemies - you will see the left right behind them, supporting them against America.

Obama lied about his association with Ayers. When originally asked about a connection to Ayers Obama said "oh, he's a guy in the neighborhood".

Testimony in the Rezko trial indicated that Ayers and Obama were together socially many times. Asked after the connection came to light in the Rezko trial Obama admitted he and Ayers were friends.

While I can clearly see Wright being an issue in the general election, and some problems associated with Rezco, I'm not sure Ayers will be damaging.

If, as Major Minor stated above, it can be demonstrated that he influenced Obama in sending money to inappropriate organizations then that could become part of the drumbeat against Obama.

I'm just not sure right now that this would resonate with voters. At this point, in only looks like a minor "pile it on" issue to me.
