Here is the ad that the Obama campaign is trying to suppress. They’ve even asked the Justice Department to investigate the organization behind the ad.
It’s interesting to see the Obama camp respond so aggressively, thus keeping the ad in front of the American public even longer.
So why would the campaign fight so hard to keep the American people from seeing it? Because it’s true…
[William Ayers] and Obama live in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood and served together on the board of the Woods Fund, a Chicago-based charity that develops community groups to help the poor. Obama left the board in December 2002.
Obama also was the first chairman of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, a school reform group of which Ayers was a founder. Ayers also held a meet-the-candidate event at his home for Obama when Obama first ran for office in the mid-1990s.
“With all our problems, why is John McCain talking about the 60s, trying to link Barack Obama to radical Bill Ayers. McCain knows Obama denounced Ayers’ crimes, committed when Obama was just 8 years old.”
Maybe because it’s relevant to the character and judgement of a man trying to become the President of the United States that his friends have declared war on the United States and have engaged in bombings of government buildings on our homeland.
But Obama claims he “denounced” the “crimes”. Great, so after acknowledging Ayers’ undisputed terrorist acts, Obama continued to work with him on various boards and was such a close friend he launched his political career from Ayers’ living room. I mean, it’s not like Ayers committed these terrorist acts after Obama had worked with him, thereby giving Obama a pass on having known what Ayers was all about. Obama knowingly befriended him and worked closely with him well after Ayers’ terrorist acts had been committed and were well known to the public.
If you want to put some context around this issue, imagine what would happen if John McCain had befriended, served on several boards with, and launched his political career from the living room of… Timothy McVeigh.
It’s the kind of change we don’t need.
