Re, Zardari, Obama and Bill Ayers

Lefty writes,


Barack Obama was eight years old when Bill Ayers was a Weatherman. By the time they met, Ayers had become a perfectly tame and highly respected community figure in Chicago. This kind of phoney guilt-by-association is, IMHO, one of the more despicable, if all too typical, tactics of the right.

Lawrence responds,

Lefty, How old was Obama when Ayers helped him launch his career. How old was Obama in 2001 when Bill Ayers said "I don't regret setting bombs. I feel we didn't do enough."

Obama described Ayers as "a guy who lives in my neighborhood," but "not somebody who I exchange ideas with on a regular basis." If not on “a regular basis,” then how often? He certainly doesn’t say “never.”

And if you find questions about Ayers, this launcher of Obama’s career, this bomber who wished (in 2001when Obama was in the Illinois Senate) he had bombed more “despicable.” What do you say about this Leftist feeding frenzy in search of some dirt on Palin? Do you want it both ways?
