Ayers: Oh, by the way, Obama and I actually are “family friends”
Hot Air ^ | NOVEMBER 13, 2008 | ALLAHPUNDIT

Posted on 11/14/2008 3:54:42 AM PST by RobinMasters

Via Ace. The bad news? Obama was lying to us when he dismissed Ayers at the debate as merely “a guy who lives in my neighborhood.” The good news? We already knew that, thanks to Axelrod and Mayor Daley.

Anyway, belated confirmation.

Contrary to what obama said during the debate:

“We had served together on the board of a foundation, knew one another as neighbors and family friends, held an initial fund-raiser at my house, where I’d made a small donation to his earliest political campaign,” he writes. But right-wing commentators tried to use those connections to smear Obama, he says.

“Obama’s political rivals and enemies apparently saw an opportunity to deepen a dishonest narrative about him, that he is somehow un-American, alien, linked to radical ideas, a closet terrorist, a sympathizer with extremism,” Ayers wrote.

"But right-wing commentators tried to use those connections to smear Obama, he says."

How is that possible, when Ayres and Obama were insisting they were only acquaintances? You know, LYING. Why lie if you're innocent?

Poor Boortz. He announced that he already deleted his Ayers file. It’s kind of hard to be entertaining when you self-sensor like that. God bless Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, and Mark Levin. They aren’t buying the latest version of ‘new tone’ spin.

New tagline:

Great tagline.

I’m surprised there hasn’t been any Columbia University stuff come out. I guess nobody saw them at a coffee shop together? No photos? Obama’s book is silent on this period in his life, they lived close by each other and then live in Chicago close by. Coincidence?

Half of America elected a unrepentant liar and fraud.

Half of America disgraced themselves and their country.

The other half was never fooled, saw right through Obama, but will also pay for the blind ignorance and hate spewed by the other half.

Soon, very soon, all those that elected this joke of a person are going to find that all thet they assumed Obama was, all that they thought he promised, will not come true.

No jobs, no security, high fuel prices, no retirement, wait in line for months, healthcare, provided by subpar physicians, loss of free speech and liberties, will be the legacy of their vote for this false messiah.

Obama is a complete and total liar, almost pathologically so. Even his autobiography (which Ayers probably wrote for him) is loaded with evasions and pure bull—— that does not stand up to examination. In the brief time since the election ended, many of the excuses that Obama offered on the campaign trail have been exposed as falsehoods: his description of his personal relations with Ayers, Wright and his illegal alien aunt have all been shown to be bogus.

Obama skated through most of the primaries and the general election, but the truth is percolating to the surface and he is being exposed as a blatant liar. The honeymoon is not going to last long.

The gullible American electorate took you at your word, Mister Obama, they will hold you accountable.

O is smearing it in everyone’s face. Even those idiots who voted for him when he puts all the old timers in his cabinet. The only change he’s bringing is he’s back tracking on his promises BEFORE he gets sworn in.

Bill Ayers still defends his indefensible actions and there are thousands of Marxist professors who apparently agree.

It isn’t that he didn’t DO these things he was accused of or that Barack Obama didn’t KNOW about them or disagreed with them.

They see NOTHING wrong in it just as they see nothing wrong in leaving an infant to die in a closet without assistence.

They are EVIL. And a bunch of stupid Red Dupe commie stooges elected our nation’s absolute most unAmerican president. The fools. The damned fools.

May I remind you that in the words of that evil unrepentant terrorist, "Oh, by the way, Obama and I actually are “family friends”". There is no point in holding a trial when a presidential pardon is guaranteed. All Ayers did was terrorism directed at police, military, and the government of the United States of America. The Affirmative Action President sees nothing wrong with any of that - "Ayers is mainstream" according to Obama's website. Sadly, this is one case where Obama didn't lie; he really does think that an unrepentant terrorist who is proud of having attacked our country is mainstream.

William Ayres emerged from his pre-election seclusion to appear on Good Morning in America today. Strangely enough the producers of the show felt that all of the controversy surrounding the relationship between Obama and Ayres didn’t warrant any investigation or interview, but the release of a new collection of lies and anti-American propaganda penned by Ayres did. Is there any thinking American left who cannot see the insidious nature of the press and their sycophantic coverage of their chosen candidate? Make no mistake; the media hoisted this character on the nation through their lies, omissions, and distortions and they should be held responsible for the disaster that is unquestionably headed our way.
Never did we see a serious examination of Obama, his policies, past relations, or a questioning of his paper thin resume....

I knew that I could count on the mainstream media to get to the truth, and it only took until a week after the election. Obama has done more than just transcende race - he has transcended morality as well. If one of my neighbors bragged about having been a terrorist who bombed our country, showing gleeful pride instead of remorse and with no regrets except that he didn’t set enough bombs, that would not be someone I chose as a family friend.

Now Bill Ayers has a new best friend in Rev. Wright. Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers Meet for First Time

The Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers, two men whose reputations had dogged the Obama campaign this year, met for the first time this weekend at a "State of the Black Union" event at Northwestern University , where Wright was the keynote speaker, the Daily Northwestern reports.

The event was hosted by the black student group For Members Only, which invited Wright to speak after Northwestern rescinded an honorary doctorate the university planned to give the Trinity United Church of Christ pastor. The group also invited Ayers—the Weather Underground founder—to attend because it was "only fitting," considering the pair's treatment by the media.

Ayers said he felt a "huge connection" to Wright and criticized the Northwestern administration for disinviting the pastor from commencement. "What possible reason could they have except pressure by alumni, pressure by others?" Ayers said. "It's freedom of speech, freedom of thought. Without that, academics is dead."

He added, "Both Reverend Wright and I were brought up as cartoon characters in this campaign because of disinformation and dishonest news. . . . I did not suffer as much as he did, but we both got out of it with a certain amount of dignity."


Gag.

yep, down the memory hole.

"'Who controls the past', ran the Party slogan, 'controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.'"

the essential act of the Party is to use conscious deception while retaining the firmness of purpose that goes with complete honesty.
