Obama Ayers Dirty Laundry

Barack Obama has been asked about his ties to Bill Ayers a few times and he has given evasive answers. He has changed his story and he has lied about Ayers. Obama always minimizes the relationship. Obama never got a half way decent questioning about his ties to this domestic terrorist until Bill O’Reilly interviewed Obama on the Factor. Obama would never have done that interview if he were not tanking in the polls.

Anyway, Obama has made several claims regarding his affiliation with Bill Ayers. This video is from when he was running for the US Senate. He cites the job at the Chicago Annenberg Challenge as experience for the job of US Senator. Barack Obama, in this video, tells us that the job Bill Ayers (a man he hardly knows) gave him qualifies him to be a Senator. I know Obama would like people to believe that he has minimal ties to this cretin but since Ayers has been more than a passing acquaintance, Obama is lying.

Maybe these items from WND are just a bunch of cruel lies made up by John McCain to hurt Obama’s image. Or maybe he associates with terrorists.

Obama’s characterization of his relationship with Ayers as “somebody who worked on education issues in Chicago that I know” barely scratches the surface of his dealings with the Ayers.

In 1995, the first organizing meeting for Obama’s state senatorial campaign was reportedly held in Ayers’s apartment.

Ayers was one of the original grantees of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, or CAC, a school reform organization in the 1990s, and was co-chairman of the Chicago School Reform Collaborative, one the two operational arms of the CAC. In 1995, Obama became chairman of the CAC under Ayers’ leadership.

In a widely circulated article, WND first reported Obama served on the board of the Wood’s Fund, a liberal Chicago nonprofit, alongside Ayers from 1999 to Dec. 11, 2002, according to the Fund’s website. According to tax filings, Obama received compensation of $6,000 per year for his service in 1999 and 2000.

A $200 campaign contribution from Ayers is listed April 2, 2001, by the “Friends of Barack Obama” campaign fund.

The two appeared together as speakers at several public events, including a 1997 University of Chicago panel entitled, “Should a child ever be called a ‘super predator?'” and another panel for the University of Illinois in April 2002 entitled, “Intellectuals: Who Needs Them?” WND

Yep, that Barack Obama keeps some rather strange company. And while the MSM and Obama camp send an army of people to Alaska to dig up dirt on Sarah Palin, Obama is not questioned about his ties to terrorists (except for O’Reilly). What are the odds that the MSM will sit Obama down and ask him the really hard questions. Despite what some liberals think, Obama has been asked very few tough questions and there is never follow up regardless of his answer. They are in the tank for him and the way ABC edited the Palin interview should leave no doubt that they were working for the Obama campaign. It is indisputable.

Fortunately, Obama is suffering a meltdown and is beginning to lose real estate in the battleground states. It is too early for predictions but, at least for now, things are looking good for McCain.

I am reminded of what Jay from STACLU asked; What do Osama bin Laden and Barack Obama have in common? They both have friends who bombed the Pentagon…

    Again with the “Obama has never been asked tough questions bit.” Can’t you give it a rest? In this example you bring up I’m reminded that once Stephanopoulos asked Obama about the Ayers connection on national television. That one doesn’t count? Or maybe because that idiot Sean Hannity talked him into asking it nullifies it?

    “Fortunately, Obama is suffering a meltdown and is beginning to lose real estate in the battleground states. It is too early for predictions but, at least for now, things are looking good for McCain.”

    You keep saying there’s a meltdown and that Obama will lose his mind but I’m just not seeing it. Poll slipping is not the end of the world and from what I can see McCain sure isn’t riding high this week when even Karl Rove had to admit this weekend that McCain’s campaign ad lies exceeded the limit.

    You guys are measuring the curtains now that Palin has showed up but I think the race is just getting interesting.

    The Thunder Run has linked to this post in the – Web Reconnaissance for 09/15/2008 A short recon of what’s out there that might draw your attention, updated throughout the day…so check back often.

    Believe what you want.

    But, the problem with liberals is they have selective listening skills. Karl Rove said that BOTH campaign’s lies had exceeded the limit. BOTH, BOTH, BOTH.

    You see, liberals have a game plan and it is to repeat things over and over until it is the last thing that sticks in people’s minds and is accepted as true. As for Rove, he also said (after all the liberals made the same claim that you did) that the left ignored that he said it about BOTH campaigns.

    Former Bush campaign guru Karl Rove said Sunday that both campaigns’ attacks have “gone one step too far,” adding that some McCain spots go “beyond the 100-percent-truth test.”

    “Both campaigns ought to be careful about it. They ought to — there ought to be an adult who says, ‘Do we really need to go that far in this ad? Don’t we make our point and won’t we get broader acceptance and deny the opposition an opportunity to attack us if we don’t include that one little last tweak in the ad?’” Rove told Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday.

    Notice the word both. Two things about this amaze me. 1. The left is screaming that Rove said McCain has gone too far in not being truthful and they are being untruthful in making the attack. Google Rove says McCain goes too far and you will get a zillion liberals parroting that line but none of them bother to show that Rove was talking about BOTH campaigns and that he gave an example from each.


    If I write it enough you might understand.

    Also, since when do any of you liberals listen to anything Rove says. Any other time he is a villain. If he now claims that an Obama ad is a lie you will be back all over the bash Rove bandwagon.

    BOTH campaigns are going beyond what they need to. BOTH campaigns are stretching the truth. Obama’s ad denigrates McCain because he can’t type on a computer. The ad makes it look like he is too old and out of touch. Fact is, he can’t because of injuries. Not only did they lie but they dishonored a disabled veteran at the same time.

    If McCain can’t use a computer then Obama can’t use Google because the information is available all over…

    I never thought I would see the day when Adam would use Karl Rove as his source and support him.

    Using the man libs all say is a liar. Hypocrites.

  5. Reason says:

    Well he hasn’t. He hasn’t been pressured about the issues, he hasn’t had his past dug into as much as Palin or McCain.

    If he had he wouldn’t be the Dems nominee for President, we’d be discussing Hillary right now not Obama. Hey I don’t mind though, he’s handing the keys to D.C. back to the conservatives.

  6. Adam says:

    “I never thought I would see the day when Adam would use Karl Rove as his source and support him.”

    All I gotta say about that when even a liar of Rove’s stature can’t spin himself out of the truth that McCain lied in his ads you know your side has a problem.

    Again, never once have I denied that “BOTH, BOTH, BOTH, BOTH” campaigns have stretched the truth, but the fact is there’s only one campaign that went into a frenzy last week with ads and attacks that were so full of lies and half truths that every major news outlet including Fox News had to call them on it. McCain.

    I saw conservative bloggers scrambling all week long to spin out of the truth that their “RINO” is a big fat liar.

  7. Big Dog says:

    You did not say both but you ignored that Rove said both. FWIW, Obama only put out one ad last week that I am aware of and it was full of lies and it discredited and dishonored a disabled veteran. That is class for you.

    Obama’s ads are just as bad, AS ROVE NOTED AND EVERYONE IGNORED. He only mentioned one ad of each campaign as being untruthful.

    Smoking Gun?


    It sure is a good thing there are screencaps and copies of video clips, as well as Google and Wayback Machine caches of the websites cited. I imagine the owers behind the Obama Machine are going to be busy as hell for a while getting the word out to all comrades in the network that it’s time to go into Redaction Overdrive.

    Maybe we should all pitch in to get several hundred gallons of Starbucks sent to the Ayers-Dohrn home in Hyde Park.
