Obama and Ayers


Barack Obama wasn’t telling the truth when he dismissed his relationship with unrepentant Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers by describing Ayers as just “a guy who lives in my neighborhood.”  That was clear enough from the fact that Ayers and his wife (and fellow terrorist) Bernardine Dohrn hosted the party that launched Obama’s political career.  But it’s even more clear from the pair of articles that NRO and Corner contributor (and my Ethics and Public Policy Center colleague) Stanley Kurtz has published today, in the Wall Street Journal and on National Review Online, on the Obama-Ayers partnership to radicalize Chicago’s public schools.


Will the mainstream media show any interest in exploring why Obama blatantly misrepresented his relationship with Ayers and what that relationship really was and is?  And Obama’s other associations with radical figures and organizations?
