"STATEMENT OF MAYOR RICHARD M. DALEY REGARDING SENATOR BARACK OBAMAS RELATIONSHIP WITH BILL AYERS:
There are a lot of reasons that Americans are angry about Washington politics. And one more example is the way Senator Obamas opponents are playing guilt-by-association, tarring him because he happens to know Bill Ayers.
I also know Bill Ayers. He worked with me in shaping our now nationally-renowned school reform program. He is a nationally-recognized distinguished professor of education at the University of Illinois/Chicago and a valued member of the Chicago community.
I dont condone what he did 40 years ago but I remember that period well. It was a difficult time, but those days are long over. I believe we have too many challenges in Chicago and our country to keep re-fighting 40 year old battles."
From Investor's Business Daily (IBD), August 27, 2008:
"Ayers, now a tenured distinguished professor of education at UIC, works to educate teachers in socialist revolutionary ideology, urging that it be passed on to impressionable students.
One of Ayer's descriptions for a course called 'Improving Learning Environments' says prospective K-12 teachers need to 'be aware of the social and moral universe we inhabit and ... be a teacher capable of hope and struggle, outrage and action, teaching for social justice and liberation.
The Annenberg papers are quite extensive 132 boxes containing 947 file folders with 70 linear feet of material. They undoubtedly contain more surprises regarding Obama's relationship with Ayers, one of many relationships Obama has sought to hide.'..."

Thanks. Forgot the siren.
Al Capone would be proud.
Makes perfect sense that Obama would bring him into the fold....
Sorry, not to be nit-picky. But it's a beacon.
Sirens make noise
To buy off the Chicago machine and pave the way for Carol Mosely Braun?
Who, by the way, has refused to release her tax returns:
Can anyone who still takes this clown seriously do so after this? Why doesn’t he just set up an official Department of Corruption and make Daley the Secretary. Or the Corruption Czar. What the H E double LL?
Clearly, he’ll be going to ATF.
Please make it stop!!!!
possibly as his chief of staff
Brother of Richard Daley, the Chicago Mayor.
Capone would have had Daley shot with a Thompson! But you know, Daley is actually qualified for some WH jobs: scrubbing toilets; garbage detail; boot licking; Fort Marcy Park assignments,...you know, stuff like that!
OMG. Barak has got a big ole stupid sign on his forehead!!!!
Just pass out the brown uniforms to all the school children and get it over with....
