“We see America as the greatest force for good in this world. Our opponent though, is someone who sees America, it seems, as being so imperfect that he’s palling around with terrorists who would target their own country.”
Of course, William Ayers’ wrong actions took place when Obama was only 8 years old. Why should Obama be associated with that? Here are a few reasons:
- Obama called Ayers “mainstream” and “respectable.”
- Obama’s political career was launched at a fundraiser in William Ayers’ living room. Ayers also held numerous other fundraisers for Obama’s campaign. Obama did not object.
- Obama and Ayers served as co-chairmen for the Chicago Anneberg Project board, a leftist board.
- Obama chose to live three blocks away from Ayers in Chicago. He also bought the home with help from convicted felon Tony Rezko.
Okay, so maybe Obama did not help with the bombings. But he did associate himself with the man responsible for the bombings. The equivalent would be if I chose to run for office and had a relationship with Osama bin Laden. After all, I was only eight years old on 9/11.
Senator Obama, next time you decide to run, maybe you should cut your ties with anti-American extremists.
