Why Wont Obama Talk About Columbia?

The years he won’t discuss may explain the Ayers tie he keeps lying about.
Barack Obama does not want to talk about Columbia. Not even to his good friends at the New York Times, whove so reliably helped him bleach away his past a past neck-deep in the hard Left radicalism he has gussied up but never abandoned.
Why? I suspect it is because Columbia would shred his thin post-partisan camouflage.
You might think the Times would be more curious. After all, the Democrats presidential nominee has already lied to the Gray Lady about the origins of his relationship with Weather Underground terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn.
Back in May, in a cheery profile of Obamas early Chicago days, the Times claimed (emphasis is mine):
Mr. Obama also fit in at Hyde Parks fringes, among university faculty members like Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, unrepentant members of the radical Weather Underground that bombed the United States Capitol and the Pentagon to protest the Vietnam War. Mr. Obama was introduced to the couple in 1995 at a meet-and-greet they held for him at their home, aides said.
Now look, anyone who gave five seconds of thought to that passage smelled a rat. Ayers and Dohrn are passionate radical activists who lived as fugitives for a decade. Theres no way they held a political coming-out party for someone who was unknown to them.
