Obama's unusual friend!
First, it was Rev. Wright.
BO went to his church for 20 years but did not remember anything that the Rev said. What kind of church member is that? How honest is BO?
Second, BO told us that Ayers was just a neighbor down the street, i.e. a constituent!
Again, no one is tying BO to what Ayers did years ago.
However, we don't understand how BO developed a relationship with such a character.
After all, what would the liberal media be saying if McCain ran around with an unrepentant abortion clinic bomber?
Would they accept the explanation that he was a fellow down the street?
I cut BO a little slack about Ayers when the story came out months ago.
I cut him slack because we can't be responsible for everything that our neighbors do.
However, BO and Ayers were more than just a couple of people who lived on the same street.
They were very close friends. They worked on each other's books. They often shared the podium to talk about left wing issues. BO and Ayers came to like each other and work on several education issues in Chicago.
How did BO get away with such a relationship? How can an elected state rep get away with launching his campaign in an unrepentant terrorist's home? Why weren't there any political costs?
First, BO represented one of the most left wing districts in Illinois. It's the kind of district where they celebrate Che's and Ho Chi Minh's birthday parties. It's one of a handful of districts where a fellow like Ayers could live without consequences. (Nancy Pelosi's San Francisco may be the other one!)
Second, and more important, BO has not been honest. Also, it does not help that we keep finding out just how radical, and unrepentant, Ayers is!
Ayers has never said "I'm sorry"! On the contrary, he regrets that they didn't do more. In other words, Ayers regrets that they didn't kill more policemen and judges.
Ayers is bad person. Obama needs to come clean and tell us about this relationship.
At the very least, Obama should call on Ayers to apologize for what he did years ago.
It does not help to hear Ayers contine to sound like a terrorist as late as 2002.
Where is the media? Would the media be this silent if McCain, or Palin, had such a relationship with an unrepentant abortion clinic bomber?
