Attacking someone for someone that they barely know is beyond idiotic.
If you attack Obama about Ayers why not....
Attack Sarah Palin for the fact that she gave the opening speech for the Alaskan Independence Party's Convention. A party whose only platform is that Alaska should secede from the United States of America. Palin's husband is a card carrying member of the party to this day.
We are, after all, talking about a party founded by a man who said, "I'm an Alaskan, not an American. I've got no use for America or her damned institutions." The same man, AIP founder Joe Vogler, also said, "[T]he fires of Hell are glaciers compared to my hate for the American government." And the Palin's family were friends with this man.
Attack Bush for the fact that his grandfather gave millions in loans to Adolf Hitler! http://www.ickypeople.com/2007/12/bush-grandfather-helped-hitler-rise-to.html
Both Vogler and Hitler are a lot less american than William Ayers who was voted "Chicago's Citizen of the Year" for his work in improving public schools.
Let me say that again. William Ayers was Chicago's CITIZEN OF THE YEAR around when he worked on the board with Obama.
