The dishonesty of the narrative about Mr. Obama during the campaign went a step further with its assumption that if you can place two people in the same room at the same time, or if you can show that they held a conversation, shared a cup of coffee, took the bus downtown together or had any of a thousand other associations, then you have demonstrated that they share ideas, policies, outlook, influences and, especially, responsibility for each other’s behavior. There is a long and sad history of guilt by association in our political culture, and at crucial times we’ve been unable to rise above it.
President-elect Obama and I sat on a board together; we livedin the same diverse and yet close-knit community; we sometimes passed in the bookstore. We didn’t pal around, and I had nothing to do with his positions. I knew him as well as thousands of others did, and like millions of others, I wish I knew him better.
Demonization, guilt by association, and the politics of fear did not triumph, not this time. Let’s hope they never will again. And let’s hope we might now assert that in our wildly diverse society, talking and listening to the widest range of people is not a sin, but a virtue.

During the campaign, GOP head Jeff Frederick told a small group of Republican volunteers that "both Barack Obama and Osama bin Laden have friends that have bombed the Pentagon."
Even so, he stood by the comment Tuesday, defending it as true and saying he was taking cues from Republican John McCain's campaign after running mate Sarah Palin said Obama had been "palling around with terrorists."
"The McCain campaign, for quite a while, was getting on me about not being on message, about not delivering their talking points," Frederick said. "And in an effort to do more of what they wanted ... I was doing that, and the Ayers talking point came out."

The Liberal Democrat:
Crucify an American governor (Palin) simply because their opposition likes her and she is "Pro America"
Defend and in some cases support a Scumsucking Piece Of ***** like Bill Ayers simply because he is an Anti American Far Left Wing Socialist Bastard who tried to murder American Citizens and has not once shown any remorse for doing so, he still hates America and he Probably "Danced In The Street" 0n the morning of 9/11 along with millions of Muslims around the world.
In my book anybody that has kind words for Bill Ayers is a no good mother f-cking rat bastard.

What a joke of a letter. I guess he forgot to mention a police officer died in one of the blasts. He forgot to mention he helped kick off Obama's state senate campaign at his house. There are others but it really does not matter ... Ayers is a lying slimeball who proved more than once that he hated America more than he ever loved it.
You do know where they planted their bombs don't you Darryl ... I would hope you do.
How about Fort Dix ... they were planning on blowing up a bomb at a party .. luckily the bombs did not work.
The planted a bomb at the home of a New York state Supreme Court justice.
Did I forget to mention a bomb at the New York City police headquaters in 1971.
How about bombing the Pentagon in 1972?
Or how about his two friends that were killed in the Greenwich villiage explosion ... Terry Robbins & Diana Oughton?
You really should at least read the history of Bill Ayers before posting such a lame sheeple type thread.
(From the comments, within Lynn Sweet’s blog posting piece defending Bill Ayers)

"MTV Democrats" must be like "John Stewart Jews" (as I understand it, this is the branch of Judaism I belong to)
At least your hackneyed reference to "Liberal Democrats" was coherent. But I do have to say it's heartening that you feal "Liberal" is no longer a mean nasty name to call people, and has to be bolstered with the nonsensical term "MTV Democrats."
