Barack Obama tries to defend William Ayers and his association with him by claiming the acts of terrorism committed by Ayers, where the group he was with and Ayers himself, bombed the Pentagon, the US Capitol and a judge's home, 40 years ago. To Obama, the domestic terrorism should be forgotten about because it happened so long ago.
Obama launched his career in William Ayers living room, Obama's campaign tried to say "Obama didn't know" about Ayers radical past when he first associated with him, that was debunked and they haven't said that again.
Obama's connections went further as he served on boards with Ayers and saw to it organizations Ayers was involved in received grants....all of this is public record.
More on William Ayers here. More on Weatherman Underground and the crimes committed here.
More on Obama/Ayers CAC (Chicago Annenberg Challenge) association here and here.
All evidence documented and the media having attempted to sweep it under the rug, we see that Americans have noticed and aren't exactly impressed with William Ayers.
He was invited to speak at University of Nebraska-Lincoln and when donors and contributors heard about it, they had something to say, which basically consisted of, "If he speaks, no more money for you!!!." (Paraphrased there but the article bears out my assertion)
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln rescinded its speaking invitation tonight for 1960s radical-turned-educator William Ayers.
No one wants a unrepentant domestic terrorist, who detonated bombs on US soil, to speak to those University kids.
The contributors, the donors, the school and those that complained loud enough to make themselves heard understands what William Ayers was and still is, yet Barack Obama while denouncing the "actions", still has not denounced the man, William Ayers and has lied repeatedly by trying to claim his connection was less than it was.
Attorney General Jon Bruning also said UNL made the correct choice.
Neither can Barack Obama.
Just another association like Wright, Pfleger, Meeks, ACORN, Rezko etc.... to which Barack Obama showed his very poor judgment in who he chooses to "pal" around with.

1. Any of various theories or systems of social organization in which the means of producing and distributing goods is owned collectively or by a centralized government that often plans and controls the economy.
Barack Obama told a man that he wanted to "spread the wealth" aka redistribute money, which is a socialist policy.
Take from those that work hard for their money when they work hard enough to make XXX amount, and give to those making less and has not worked for the other person's money.
No matter how you cut it, it is socialism and Barack Obama said it on video when he was asked a question.
Sarah Palin has finally called it what it is, at a rally in Ohio:
The remark came at an Ohio rally in which Palin was discussing Joe Wurzelbacher, more commonly known as "Joe the plumber," who told the Toledo Blade that Obama's plan to "spread the wealth" was "a pretty socialist comment."
Before that moment Obama hid his intent behind pretty words about helping middle class families, but when Obama was asked a direct question, didn't have his handy teleprompter to give the "pretty" answer, he finally told the truth and said he wanted to "spread the wealth."
Spread your wealth Barack, it is yours, but do not touch our money like some dictator deciding that what WE have worked for should be handed to someone else by you.
The video of Obama saying "spread the wealth" should be blasted on every television from now until election day.
When you rip the mask off of Barack Obama, you find a Marxist/socialist and it is time American voters be made aware of that basic fact.
McCain himself has avoided referring to Obama as a socialist, but he has left the door open to that assumption. In July, he told the Kansas City Star that Obama's senate record is "more to the left than the announced socialist in the United States Senate, Bernie Sanders of Vermont."
Exactly, one look at Barack Obama's voting record tells it all and Palin needs to continue pounding that point home as does McCain.
Well said Sarah, KUDOS.

"Defendant grabbed the sign [informant] was holding, broke the wood stick that was attached to it, and then struck informant in informant's face thereby causing informant to sustain redness, swelling, and bruising to informant's face and further causing informant to sustain substantial pain."
This man [Obama supporter]:
Took a McCain sign from a "small, quiet, middle-aged woman wearing glasses" and tore the sign to shreds, then beat the woman with the stick, causing her bruises and injury.
The man admitted to it and was arrested and what was his excuse?
"I don't know why I did this. It's just those signs, and this election, it has me so upset."
The media create a story about someone yelling "kill him" at a Palin rally, to which the Secret Service debunked and found NO evidence of, after it was reported to high heaven....but we see nothing about this incident in the news, where there was an arrest, a report, a complaint and a victim?
HELLLLOOOOO, what is wrong with this picture folks?

H/T to MM, she asked that people spread this far and wide and after reading it, I agree.....everyone needs to read it.

HEH, when they cannot stand the heat they run away with their tails between their legs.
H/T NewsBusters and YouTube URL here, video below.
From NewsBusters, the scene is set:
After discussing the state of the current presidential campaign, the issue of Joe Wurzelbacher -- the Ohio man who recently challenged Obama over how the candidate's tax plan would negatively impact him if he bought into a plumbing business he was looking at -- surfaced.
Then Schultz says "Well, let me speak from experience. EA Schultz Construction is a company run by my two boys, and I can tell you we've looked at both plans, we really like the Obama plan. We're gonna get some tax credits that we wouldn't get under the McCain plan..."
At that point, Malzberg smartly asked, "Do you make more than 250, Ed? Does it make more than 250?"
Guess he really didn't want to answer the question!!!!
Fact is, while Obamabots are busily trying to discredit "Joe the Plumber", Schultz is the perfect example of why they want to focus on poor Joe instead of Obama's socilaist tax plan... it is because they cannot justify their own candidate's policy, so they have to try to distract.
I see it in threads all over the web, even here at WUA on any thread dealing with "Joe The Plumber" and Obama's "spread the wealth" comment which now everybody has seen reported or heard for themselves.
The socialist agenda has been exposed and Obama supporters everywhere are desperate to try to change the subject.
That is the bottom line.
Obama was right when he told supporters that Democrats know how to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, his careless, for once truthful answer of "spread the wealth", might just be his campaigns way of doing just that.

Via email from Freedom's Watch:
Barack Obama has finally come clean about his plans to redistribute wealth through a combination of tax hikes and other dubious gimmicks.
Speaking to an Ohio plumber concerned about his tax plan, Obama said that higher taxes on small businesses were necessary to "spread the wealth around" to those with lesser income. Investor's Business Daily called this notion "socialist economics."
The way to create true prosperity is through tax cuts, not tax hikes. President John F. Kennedy promoted his tax cuts by arguing that a rising tide lifts all boats. He understood that a general prosperity benefited everyone. But by punishing success and taxing the small business owners who create prosperity, Obama apparently expects the boats to raise the tide.
Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal exposes the truth behind Obama's claim that 95% of "working families" will get a tax cut under his plan even though more than a third of Americans don't pay any income tax right now. How does he accomplish such a feat? By giving those who currently pay no taxes "refundable" tax credits, which are essentially direct transfer payments. As the Journal puts, "Once upon a time we called this 'welfare'."
Tax hikes on small businesses and redistribution of wealth schemes are just the opposite of what our country needs right now. Freedom's Watch has been active in educating Americans all around the country about the dangers higher taxes pose to working families and our economy. Check out some of the latest ads that we've been running in Oregon, North Carolina, Nevada, New Jersey, and elsewhere.
We hope you like the ads and will join us in our efforts to keep America free and prosperous.

Amusing, he did good.
Watch for yourself below:
The line about "some" there supporting him, then highlighting Hillary Clinton was entertaining as hell.
Watch the whole thing.
