Obama Ayers relationship, runs deep

Republican • National • Committee

I’m not a fan of posting stuff directly from a political party’s website, but this stuff is fair game simply because it is a simple, non-arguable set of facts. Facts that for some people seem to be lost on some people. How is the fact that Obama knowingly engaged this character, Bill Ayers on anything a small matter? No patriotic American is going to have anything to do with an unrepentant terrorist, at all, period. Obama has a 10 year relationship with his guy, Ayers is not “just some guy from the neighborhood”. Thats garbage.

This speaks to Obamas poor judgement. Just like everything other fruitloop that Obama is tied to. Ayers is as defiant today, as he was back in the day. Obama says what Ayers did happened when he was just 8 years old. Yea well… There was a nine year old kid in the home that was attacked by Ayers…

The only relationship that I’d have with Ayers is the act of battery that I commit on this scumbag, and the court date that would follow.

The Relationship Between Barack Obama And Bill Ayers Is Much More Extensive Than Obama’s Campaign Is Willing To Admit

Obama’s Top Campaign Staff Have Attempted To Downplay The Relationship Between Obama And Bill Ayers:

Obama Spokesman Robert Gibbs Said That Obama And Ayers
Weren’t Close And That Obama Was Only 8 Years Old When Ayers Was
Bombing Buildings.
Robert Gibbs: “If you read the article …
it says these two men weren’t close, this man isn’t involved in our
campaign. Bill Ayers is somebody that Barack Obama said his actions
were despicable and these happened when Barack Obama was 8 years old.”
(FOX News’ “FOX & Friends,” 10/6/08)

Gibbs Has Also Limited The Relationship Between Obama And Ayers To Serving On Two Boards Together. John
Roberts:  “Barack Obama knew Bill Ayers and had contact with him
between 1995 and 2005. Exactly what was the nature of the
relationship?” Robert Gibbs: “Well, John, as The New York Times reported this weekend, they served on two boards together during that time period.” (CNN’s “American Morning,” 10/6/08)

Even Obama Has Previously Referred To Ayers As “A Guy Who
Lives In My Neighborhood” And Not Someone He Exchanges Ideas With “On A
Regular Basis.”
Obama: “George, but this is an example of
what I’m talking about. This is a guy who lives in my neighborhood,
who’s a professor of English in Chicago who I know and who I have not
received some official endorsement from. He’s not somebody who I
exchange ideas from on a regular basis. And the notion that somehow as
a consequence of me knowing somebody who engaged in detestable acts 40
years ago, when I was 8 years old, somehow reflects on me and my values
doesn’t make much sense, George.” (Sen. Barack Obama, ABC Democrat
Candidates Presidential Debate, Philadelphia, PA, 4/16/08)

But Obama’s Connections With Bill Ayers Are Much More Extensive Than He Or His Campaign Staff Is Willing To Admit:

In 1995, During Obama’s First State Senate Campaign, William
Ayers And Wife Bernadine Dohrn Hosted A Meeting Of Chicago Liberals At
Their Home For Obama, Which One Attendee Said Was Aimed At “Launching
“In 1995, State Senator Alice Palmer introduced her
chosen successor, Barack Obama, to a few of the district’s influential
liberals at the home of two well known figures on the local left:
William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn. While Ayers and Dohrn may be
thought of in Hyde Park as local activists, they’re better known
nationally as two of the most notorious — and unrepentant — figures
from the violent fringe of the 1960s anti-war movement. … ‘I can
remember being one of a small group of people who came to Bill Ayers’
house to learn that Alice Palmer was stepping down from the senate and
running for Congress,’ said Dr. Quentin Young, a prominent Chicago
physician and advocate for single-payer health care, of the info rmal
gathering at the home of Ayers and his wife, Dohrn. ‘[Palmer]
identified [Obama] as her successor.’ … Dr. Young and another guest,
Maria Warren, described it similarly: as an introduction to Hyde Park
liberals of the handpicked successor to Palmer, a well-regarded figure
on the left. ‘When I first met Barack Obama, he was giving a standard,
innocuous little talk in the living room of those two
legends-in-their-own-minds, Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn,’ Warren
wrote on her blog in 2005. ‘They were launching him — introducing him
to the Hyde Park community as the best thing since sliced bread.'” (Ben
Smith, “Obama Once Visited ’60s Radicals,” The Politico, 1/22/08)

From March Of 1995 Until September Of 1997, Obama And Ayers

two men were involved in efforts to reform the city’s education system.
They appeared together on academic panels, including one organized by
Michelle Obama to discuss the juvenile justice system, an area of
mutual concern. Mr. Ayers’s book on the subject won a rave review in
The Chicago Tribune by Mr. Obama, who called it ‘a searing and timely
account.'” (Jo Becker and Christopher Drew, “Pragmatic Politics, Forged
On The South Side,” The New York Times, 5/11/08)

    Together On The Woods Fund, Ayers Was Quoted Saying “I Don’t Regret
    Setting Bombs … I Feel We Didn’t Do Enough.”
    “‘I don’t
    regret setting bombs,’ Bill Ayers said. ‘I feel we didn’t do enough.’
    Mr. Ayers, who spent the 1970’s as a fugitive in the Weather
    Underground, was sitting in the kitchen of his big
    turn-of-the-19th-century stone house in the Hyde Park district of
    Chicago.” (Dinitia Smith, “No Regrets For A Love Of Explosives,” The New York Times, 9/11/01)
  • NOTE: Obama, Born August 14th, 1961, Was 40 Years Old When Ayers Was Quoted. (Obama For America Website, www.barackobama.com, Accessed 10/6/08; Dinitia Smith, “No Regrets For A Love Of Explosives,” The New York Times, 9/11/01)

Obama And Ayers Are Neighbors In Chicago’s Hyde Park Neighborhood. “Twenty-six
years later, at a lunchtime meeting about school reform in a Chicago
skyscraper, Barack Obama met Mr. Ayers, by then an education professor.
Their paths have crossed sporadically since then, at a coffee Mr. Ayers
hosted for Mr. Obama’s first run for office, on the schools project and
a charitable board, and in casual encounters as Hyde Park neighbors.”
(Scott Shane, “Obama And ’60s Bomber: A Look Into Crossed Paths,” The New York Times, 10/4/08)

  • Obama Spokesman Ben LaBolt Told The New York Times That Last Year Obama And Ayers “Bumped Into Each Other On The Street In Hyde Park.” “[Obama
    spokesman Ben LaBolt] said they have not spoken by phone or exchanged
    e-mail messages since Mr. Obama began serving in the United States
    Senate in January 2005 and last met more than a year ago when they
    bumped into each other on the street in Hyde Park.” (Scott Shane,
    “Obama And ’60s Bomber: A Look Into Crossed Paths,” The New York Times, 10/4/08)
  • Neighbors Have Said “It’s Only Natural”
    That Obama Would Know Ayers, Who Often Opens His Home For Gatherings,
    As Obama And His Wife “Are A Part Of Our Neighborhood And Part Of Our
    Social Circle.”
    “Since coming out of hiding in 1980, the
    couple have raised three boys in Chicago and become part of the fabric
    of their liberal South Side neighborhood. Neighbors said it’s only
    natural that Obama would know Ayers and Dohrn, who often open their
    homes for gatherings filled with lively discussions about politics,
    arts and social issues. Obama and his wife ‘are part of our
    neighborhood and part of our social circle,’ said Elizabeth Chandler, a
    neighbor of Ayers’.” (Trevor Jensen, Robert Mitchum and Mary Owen,
    “Bill Ayers’ Turbulent Past Contrasts With Quiet Academ ic Life,” Chicago Tribune, 4/17/08)

  • Ayers’ Group, The Weather Underground, Is A “Violent Left-Wing Activist Group.” “Senator

    “Obama’s Ties To Left Come Under Scrutiny,” The New York Sun, 2/19/08)

The Weather Underground Produced A Manual Which Begins, “We

We are Communist women and men, underground in the United States for
more than four years.'” (Paul L. Montgomery, “2 Women In Brink’s Case
Identified With Weathermen From Start In ’69,” The New York Times, 10/ 22/81)



  1. I look forward to your companion piece exploring McCain’s connection to G. Gordon Liddy (convicted criminal) and Palin’s connection to the Alaska Independence Party (Secessionist group). Please use the same layout and logic as used here.

  2. Sure! Liddy is a criminal, no doubt. No love for the guy. Sadly for you however, Liddy didn’t give rise to McCains position. Ayers and Dorhn on the otherhand did get Obama to where he is. Moreover, Obama is tied directly, and indisputably to marxist groups.

    I am not huge fan of McCain by a long shot, and do plan on writing a piece on what I believe to be criminal in his case. Sadly, he is the least of the two evils that we must choose between. At least he is not anti-American in his history and associations. That said, even as a military veteran, I have deep problems with McCain. But we must choose one, and sadly, he is the “better” of the two.

    If you want to have a discussion on the topic, offer a point that is little more than an attempt to draw a moral equivalent.

    The context of the differences are very important here. Obamas associates are anti-American. Obama’s associates got him to where he is.

    As for the Alaska Independence Party issue, that is barely worth commenting on since that has been so painfully debunked. It is quite quite telling that the full force and weight of the in the tank main stream media failed to come up with only an untrue assertion about Palin. Yet it totally ignores Obama’s highly criminal associations with terrorists that are openly anti-American.

    I welcome your discussions, but do try to do better than cliched, and unfounded media talking points.
