Team Obama has pushed back after John McCain during a Blogger’s Conference call called on Obama to apologize for his association and comment comparing Weather Underground bomber William “Billy” Ayers and Senator Tom Coburn.
- “I think not only a repudiation, but an apology for ever having anything to do with an unrepentant terrorist is due the American people….”
- “I’m a bit surprised there hasn’t been more discussion about the comparison Sen. Obama made about an unrepentant terrorist, and that’s what Mr. Ayers is, and a great American citizen who goes back to Oklahoma on the weekends to deliver babies,” McCain said. “I’m offended by a comparison to a man like Tom Coburn.”
- While “Tom Coburn may be many things to people who are on the liberal side of the ledger,” McCain said, he isn’t the same as somebody who an unrepentant member of an organization that was responsible for bombings and killings.
- Spokesman Hari Sevugan: â€œWe want to take Senator McCain at his word that he wants to run a respectful campaign, but that is becoming increasingly difficult when he continually tries to use the politics of association and makes claims he knows not to be true to advance his campaign.â€
The Barack Obama campaign has reacted to EVERY criticism with “Everything That Hurts Us Is a Distraction.” Now, when John McCain suggests that Obama should repudiate an “unrepentant” terrorist, it is McCain that is running a disrespectul campaign.
The domestic and foreign terrorism connections that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have are stark and startling. For them “soft on terrorism” has reached the level of acceptance of their views as mainstream and for use as political advanatage/expedience.
- â€œThis is a guy who lives in my neighborhood, whoâ€™s a professor of English in Chicago, who I know and who I have not received an official endorsement from,â€ Obama said. â€œHeâ€™s not somebody who I exchange ideas with on a regular basis.â€
- â€œThe notion that somehow as a consequence of me knowing somebody who engaged in detestable acts 40 years ago, when I was 8 years old, somehow reflects on me and my values doesnâ€™t make much sense.â€
But, the relationship of Obama with domestic terrorists/bombers Bill Ayers and his wife Bernardine Dorn is deeper. Read about the details here. And, Billy Ayers is NOT a simple Professor of English and Obama is lying about their relationship.
Then, there is Hillary and Bill Clinton’s involvement with FALN.
The FALN clemencies provide a disturbing example of how the abuse or misuse of presidential prerogative, under the guise of policy, can be put in service of the personal and private activities of the president’s spouse — and beyond the reach of meaningful congressional oversight.
Well, See-Dubya writing over at Michelle Malkin’s blog has constructed a handy chart for us:
Senator Hillary Clinton on husband Bill’s Weather Underground clemencies: “I didn’t know.”
East Lansing, MI – November 30, 2007. Bill Ayers, a close friend of Bert Garskof, speaks at the MSU SDS Reunion. Garskof was a mentor to Ayers and many other SDSers… (Part 1)
As Michelle points out by referring to Sol Stern’s piece in City Journal is “NOT the damage done by the Weather Underground 40 years ago, but the far greater harm inflicted on the nationâ€™s schoolchildren by the political and educational movement in which Ayers plays a leading role today.”
What he can be blamed for is not acknowledging that his neighbor has a political agenda that, if successful, would make it impossible to lift academic achievement for disadvantaged children. As I have shown elsewhere in City Journal, Ayersâ€™s politics have hardly changed since his Weatherman days. He still boasts about working full-time to bring down American capitalism and imperialism. This time, however, he does it from his tenured perch as Distinguished Professor of Education at the University of Illinois, Chicago. Instead of planting bombs in public buildings, Ayers now works to indoctrinate Americaâ€™s future teachers in the revolutionary cause, urging them to pass on the lessons to their public school students.
Read the entire piece.
Here is more video of Billy (William) Ayers:
Scary anti-Americanism piped into our public schools.
Wonder why the private, religious and home school movements are alive and well?
Now, the question and the REAL dilemma/problem for Barack Obama is: Does he subscribe to these EXTREME and RADICAL anti-American views in public school
What say you, Barry?
William Ayers, Tom Coburn and Barack ObamaRemember that Barack Obama compared Weather Underground Bomber William Ayers to Senator Tom Coburn. Now, questions are arising why Ayers and his radical bomber wife, Bernardine Dohrn were never prosecuted for their crimes (via Hugh Hewitt).
Answer: Deep Throat AKA FBI Agent Mark Felt
If everyone knows that William Ayers and his comrades in the Weather Underground were planning to set bombs to murder innocent people, why didnâ€™t they do time?
Because the investigation against them was muffed thanks to the illegal activities of the Washington Postâ€™s favorite Watergate answer man himself, Mark Felt â€” aka Deep Throat.
In 1972-73, FBI official Felt and his colleague Edward S. Miller authorized nine illegal break-ins at the homes of Weather Underground members. When the black bag jobs became public, the federal government decided it couldnâ€™t prosecute the alleged terrorists. Indicted during the Carter Administration, Felt and Miller were tried in 1980 in Washington. Ever the patriot, former President Nixon voluntarily testified on the defendantsâ€™ behalf, but they were convicted anyway and pardoned by President Reagan in March 1981.
More on Barack Obama’s friends William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn over at Power Line with audio of them continuing to rant against the United States.
Old Weather Underground radicals never fade away, now do they? They are either NEVER prosecuted or are PARDONED by Bill Clinton.
Now, will the press ask Barack Obama on why he has NOT repudiated his association with the bomb making LEFTIST radicals?
US Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY) takes the stage after her husband, former President Bill Clinton (L), to address a crowd of supporters in Market Square in downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on April 21, 2008.Matt Drudge had the poop earlier in the day that Hillary is up big in Pennsylvania.
Controlled excitement is building inside of Clinton’s inner circle as closely guarded internal polling shows the former first lady with an 11-point lead in Pennsylvania!
Clinton is polling near to nearly 2 to 1 over Obama in many regions of the state, a top insider explained to the DRUDGE REPORT.
A strong coalition of middle-class and religious voters has all but secured a Clinton victory Tuesday, with headline-making margins, the campaign believes.
“It’s not a matter of if, it’s a matter of how much,” a senior campaign source said Monday morning.
When pressed if the dramatic internal polling numbers could somehow be flawed in a state as demographically complex as Pennsylvania, and with new voter registration surging to unseen levels, the campaign insider held firm.
“Senator Obama would be wise not to unpack his bags quite yet.”
With less than 24 hours to go until the beginning of the end of primary season voting, Obama has handedly captured Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, but has failed to dominate suburban sprawl, the campaign’s polling reveals.
An 11-point victory in Pennsylvania for Clinton would expand on margins scored in Ohio.
Clinton will quickly move to feverishly focus on Indiana starting Tuesday night, hoping to somehow convince superdelegates that she not only has superior stamina but has crucial swing state appeal.
Without superdelegate intervention, Clinton still faces impossible math to nomination.
And, Flap has been wondering why is Hillary up so much?
Hillary is being outspent, out campaign advertised and has high negative polling.
Could it be Pennsylvania voters have learned how RADICAL Barack Obama REALLY is? Did the recent revelation of Obama’s association with left-wing, anti-Vietnam War, Weather Underground bomber William Ayers and Obama’s comparison of Ayers with Dr. and Senator Tom Coburn have something to do with Obama’s fall?
William Ayers, Tom Coburn and Barack Obama
Listen to John McCain on ABC national television yesterday criticizing the Obama-William Ayers relationship:
The bloom has come off of the Obama rose and the question for tomorrow and Pennsylvanians is how much?
Bill Ayers, Tom Coburn and Barack Obama
Yes, he did……..
