Why would Americans vote for a man (Barack Obama) who associates with Bill Ayers, a known terrorist?

Bill Ayers, a known domestic terrorist, who regrets not setting off more bombs killing his fellow U.S. citizens, is one of Barack Hussein Obama's buddies. Knowing that, Americans would vote for Obama for president. WHY?

    Because Obama has a hidden past and the media helped him keep his troubling associations under wraps. There is a lot about Obama we don't know and he doesn't want us to know. Being the dictators / terrorists of the world want Obama to be the American President, is even more troubling. If people don't open their eyes - what we will have in Obama - is the wolf in charge of the hen house.

    The Obama sheep will follow him even when he converts them to Islam, the terrorist's religion. Don't you love how the Obama sheep tell us not to believe in everything the media says but then turns around and post the link to the #1 democratic propaganda media or how about those children on here who only insult you rather than answer your question. This is so typical of the Obama sheep.

    President McCain has already won.

    The libs on here are saying "give a rest" "old news" "nothing there" Why are they doing that? Because they are afraid that the American public will fianlly wake up. Guess what? It's going to work.

    This is not about Clinton cheating on his wife. This is about known anti american idiots surrounding a presidential candidate. It is time to cry Foul and sing it from the roof top.

    Here is a question. Would you invite Lee Harvey Oswald over for dinner if he was alive today?

    Senator Obama first contact with Bill Ayers was at meetings which were being held to help find solutions to some of the problems that plague public schools in Chicago. Correct? In other words, Obama's motive for having any association with Ayers at all was to make Chicago public schools better than they were 15- 20 odd years ago.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but Ayers has some sort of a degree in education and some experience with educational issues so it wasn't exactly any radical agenda that he was laying out for improving the Chicago public schools. He wanted kids to have better educational opportunities, and his past criminality does not necessarily preclude him from working with others who have and had the same goal of improving public education for children in Chicago.

    Working to make public education better does not absolve Ayers of his crimes, but neither does it make him a worse person nor does it make anyone who works with him on such matters as improving public education a bad person. You would have to be an idiot to believe in that causal connection.

    But since we are on the topic of public education, what has Senator McCain ever done to improve public education? Wasn't he one of the Senators that just voted against extending educational benefits to soldiers coming home from having served in Iraq and Afghansitan? Yeah, he was. He said, and this is close but not a direct quote, that to give these soldiers educational benefits would cause too many soldiers to leave military service to seek a college education. In other words, forcing them to re-up by denying them the opportunity of getting a first-rate education that would give them real career options is a bad thing in John McCain's world. How much better that they should have simply the option of living or dying in Iraq or Afghanistan and possibly Iran if Senator McCain takes office.

    Does that answer your question?

    Ayres isnt the only anti-american radical exteemist Obama is connected to.

    There is Khalhid al-Mansour, Black panther member and helped Obama get into Harvard, even though his grades didnt qualify.

    There is Tony Rezko

    There is Frank M Davis, Radical member of CPUSA

    There is Rashid Khaldi, member of HAMAS.

    There Mashid Asbahi, who was an Obama advisor but had to resign because of terrorist ties.

    There is Jennifer Mason, Obamas Corospondace Coordenator. Anti American Radical and member of the Nation of Islam.

    There is Jamal Said, Hamas Member,

    Wow- your handle on the truth is pretty poor.

    Ayers has rejected the folly of his youth, which went on when Obama was 8 !

    By the time Obama met Ayers, 30 years later !, Ayers was a well respected member of mainstream society.

    You need to wake up and smell the coffee. The economy is going down the tube, and smearing Obama isnt going to help us all.

    You need to educate yourself. Barack Obama has discussed the discrepancies in this relationship your talking about. On our local conservative radio show their was a round table discussion with both Democrats and Republicans, and the Republicans all agreed that the McCain camp does not want to go down this route pointing fingers at Barack because McCain has had dealings with many shady people in his past. Back to the drawing board.

    YOu're only the 30th. political tool to ask this same question in YA in the last 24 hours and you get shot down each time'

    Sarah Plain is married to a known anti-American hate group man. John McCain gave classified information to the enemy and made propaganda films for the North Vite Communist government.

    Osama slightly knowing Ayers is far less serious.

    I would like to retort that if the above alligations were indeed true of McCain they would be all over the left leaning media like fleas. Unfortunatley, all people care about is what Obama says he is going to do for them, which is tax rich people. The American society is getting to be lazier and lazier, wanting it all and resenting those who have more. So instead of getting off their butts and working harder, it is easier to make excuses and believe that someone will hand them whatever they want on a platter. Obama will deliver on the tax rich people promise, but he won't stop there, he'll tax everyone but if you think that one red cent of that money will ever do anything productive you're nuts. Lazy greed is why people are going to vote for Obama, and are willing to look the other way at his terrorist associates.

    The Weathermen never killed a single, innocent person. But, to answer your question - No, I don't have a problem voting for someone who was professionally involved with Bil Ayers.
