NYT wakes up to Obama/Ayers connection

4 10 2008

… and of course tries to whitewash it — you can read the NYT article here.

Here are the soft points:

  • Ayers did his bad deeds twenty-six years before he met Obama.
  • Their paths have crossed sporadically at a coffee … on the schools project and a charitable board, and in casual encounters as … neighbors.
  • But the two men do not appear to have been close. Nor has Mr. Obama ever expressed sympathy for the radical views and actions of Mr. Ayers, [Yeah, right. Regarding the views, Obama’s vision for America is probably the same as Ayers’.  Regarding the actions, Obama, as a good liberal, sure sees many “nuances” in Ayers’ choice for violence.]
  • in Chicago, Mr. Ayers has largely been rehabilitated. [read: among the liberal circles where Obama lives Ayers’ political radicalism is something normal – here is a small taste of Hyde Park neighborhood]
  • Ayers was … an advocate of school reform. [read here what type of reform it is]
  • “He’s [Ayers has] done a lot of good in this city and nationally,” Mayor Richard M. Daley said [same corrupt Mayor that was endorsed by Obama]
  • Most of the bombs the Weathermen were blamed for had been placed to do only property damage [how lame for NYT to try to whitewash Ayers by using this argument]

But there was some good stuff in that article too:

  • “If you’re in public life, you ought to say, ‘I don’t want to be associated with this guy,’ ” Mr. Chapman said. “If John McCain had a long association with a guy who’d bombed abortion clinics, I don’t think people would say, ‘That’s ancient history.’ ”

Here is the attack video mentioned in the article.

Looks like Palin noticed NYT article and is not buying the whitewash: Palin says Obama friendly with terrorists.
