William Ayers to the left, back in the day. You Don't Need A Weatherman to know which way the wind blows!
It sounds like the most bizarre right-wing conspiracy tale, but apparently he really does. Not with foreign terrorists- with former domestic terrorists.
Apparently Obama is at least casual friends with with William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn. If you're younger than 40, these names may mean nothing to you. Ayers and Dohrn were members of The Weathermen. A hard left group that accidentally bombed a townhouse in Greenwich Village in NYC and who very intentionally bombed the Pentagon and other government buildings.
Apparently, Barack Obama began his political career at a fundraiser at the home of Dohrn and Ayers. They're not close allies, but they are described as "friends".
MSNBC said today "Ever-so-slowly, Obama's run-ins with a couple of notorious '60s radicals is starting to seep into the MSM... the visit by Obama to their home-part of a campaign courtship-reflects more extensive interaction than has previously reported.”
If there is ANY additional corroboration to any Ayers-Dorhn relationship with Obama , Obama is finished.
In a NY Times article dated September 11, 2001 --of all the days-- William Ayers said "I don't regret setting bombs"
Obama may have the Democratic nomination locked up, but he also may have just lost the Presidential Election.
( First heard on the John Batchelor Show, on KFI Los Angeles internet stream. Batchelor brought up the connection, (lefty) guest Katrina Van Den Heuvel of "The Nation" got angry, saying the story was "stupid" but did not challenge any detail of the Ayers-Dohrn connection with Obama. Believe that KFI archives its programs so please listen to it yourself. This was in the first hour of the program)
Maggie comes fleet foot
Face full of black soot
Talkin' that the heat put
Plants in the bed but
The phone's tapped anyway
Maggie says that many say
They must bust in early May
Orders from the D. A.
Look out kid
Don't matter what you did
Walk on your tip toes
Don't try "No Doz"
Better stay away from those
That carry around a fire hose
Keep a clean nose
Watch the plain clothes
You don't need a weather man
To know which way the wind blows
(Bob Dylan, from Subterranean Homesick Blues, 1965)
