Seeing Ghosts: Obama's ties to Ayers and Auchi are distant, but his foes plan to pounce .

The Obama campaign is planning to expand its research and rapid-response team in order to repel attacks it anticipates over his ties to 1960s radical Bill Ayers, indicted developer Antoin Rezko and other figures from his past.

Ayers may be “mainstream” to Hyde Park and Chicago, but he’s a terrorist to America.

No war room tactic by Obama can change that.

Good.

When he's done explaining his ties to his early political supporter terrorist Ayers, and assorted palestinians, and his relationship with financier and home-buying helper Rezko, finished with his spiritual mentor Jeremiah Wright, perhaps he's explain the nature of his relationship, and the impact of his admitted political mentor, Frank Davis, Communist.

Hush...never tell the enemy he is stupid. Let him roll in it and tell him it smells like gardenias.

MSM continuing to protect Obama by failing to disclose important facts. Several witnesses place Obama at the party for Auchi, and one even says he gave several toasts.

In addition, Andrew McCarthy over at NRO says that Obama and Ayers not only spoke together twice on the same panel, but that one panel was orchestrated by Michelle Obama. The Obamas saw fit to invite him to opine on the topic of “Should a Child Ever Be Called a Super-predator?” Of course these lefties assembled think the answer is no. Obama tried to pass legislation in IL that would have prohibited the state from trying minors as adults, no matter how heinous the crime.

Newsweek spin. His ties to Ayers are not distant. If McCain or any Republican had even a trace amount of connection to someone like Ayers that Obama has they'd use to destroy him.

Because he's an empty suit. There's no "there" there...all hat, no cattle....symbolism over substance - just look at a transcript of anything he says. Total intellectual flatulence.

Operatives such as David Bossie are sharpening knives as expectations mount that Obama will be their target in the fall.

They make it sound like Republicans are trying to literally assassinate Obama. If this article were acurate it would say, Obama has been building bombs in his past that have accidentally exploded in his face.

I watched a bit of the Sunday AM shows (dumb, I know) and heard many comments about the “Republican attack machine”

Funny they never mention a “Democrat attack machine”
Like “left wing” it doesn’t even exist in the mind of the MSM

Carville and Paul "the Forehead" Begala are just a couple of lovable warm little puppies, don't you know? They wouldn't ever say a mean, untrue word about any Republican. Unfortunately, the Democrat attack machine is made up of the MSM's "journalists" and talking heads.

It was only yesterday I had to bite my tongue (for family/business reasons) as I heard 2 Democrat airheads describing Rush Limbaugh as a "hater." They became downright hateful about it. They think of themselves as being kind, reasonable, objective and welcoming of 'diversity' as long as it's diversity they agree with.

“Swift Boated” = being exposed as a fraud. If Obama isn’t a fraud, then he should have no problems. If he has something to be “got”, then he should be afraid of “gotcha” politics.

“Swiftboating” is RAT-talk for “telling the truth about me”. I actually enjoy hearing RATS and reporters whine about “swiftboating”, because it gives me a chance to get in their faces and give them a lecture about how the Swift Boat Vets were American heroes who told the truth about a liar. They hate that.

That reminds me, what is Obama’s Selective Service status? Males born after December 31, 1959 (Obama’s bithdate is August 4, 1961) are required by law to register with Selective Service within a month of their 18th birthday. Did Barack Hussein Obama register?

Clearly not.

He’s doing a superb job “swift-boating” himself. No need for us to spend our hard earned dollars on those activities.

Kinda like watching someone put a brick on the gas pedal while the car’s in neutral........

Add to Swift Boat Dictionary:

Obasm: what women must have to vote for HBO.

Obimbo: A women HBO supporter who has frequent self induced Obasms. Obasmer: A new multi-action dildo vibrating sex toy, sold at HBOs fund raising dinners.( You are spared the detailed description, but it is brown and sort of gnarly, and plays a recording "Hope and Change" when turned on. They tout it as being able to do everything you want it to, including taking you to the Polls. It may be the worlds only sex toy with an embedded GPS system.) O'Bama: HBOs Black Irish Cousins

Obamster: A Clintster who saw the light

Obamfuscate: Lie and look good ?

Obamstard: One of HBOs many illegitimate children?

Obamtard: Mindless HBO supporter

Obamstinate:

To be two faced about a question, to answer a question without answering it, to appear to answer a question without answering it at all.
