All The News That Fits

Now That’s Rich

Posted by E. on November 15, 2008

Did y’all see the William Ayers interview on Good Morning American Friday, Nov. 14?

How nice that he comes out to talk after the election.  How nice that the reprinting of his book Fugitive Days is being released, with a new afterward, after the election.  How nice that in that afterward that is coming out after the election he refers to Barack Obama as a “family friend.”

But you have to watch the video when he talks about it.  Yeah, he claims he didn’t say that because they were family friends, but because that is how the blogosphere characterized the Ayers/Obama relationship.

So, let’s see if we have this straight:  a man who disagrees so vehemently with the Vietnam War that he helps set off bombs in government buildings just curls up in the fetal position, caves to the blogosphere, and characterizes his relationship with Obama as “family friend” even though he doesn’t actually believe that is what they are?

Hmmm . . .

But it gets better.

If you watch this segment you will hear Ayers say that what The Weather Underground did does not qualify as terrorist activity because they never meant to hurt or kill anyone.  ‘Splain that to your three dead bomb making terrorist pals who accidentally blew themselves up.

But it gets better.

Speaking of the whole election flap over the depth and breadth of Obama’s relationship with admitted bomber-who-still-wishes-he-had-done-more, Ayers said,

“This idea that we need to know more, like there’s some dark, hidden secret, some secret link — it’s just a myth. And it’s a myth thrown up by people who want to kind of exploit the politics of fear.”

People who have questions about what kinds of people a presidential candidate may or may not pal around with are exploiting the politics of fear?

So says an admitted bomber.

Now that’s rich.

And the fact that people will swallow it?  Now that’s scary.
