Is Ayers Connection "Issue Oriented?"

It is my opinion that this subject is as "issue oriented" as the economy or the wars. I asked several friends of mine the very same questions I found posted on someone else's website:

"I wish someone would ask [Obama]
just once: 'Then tell me, would it be ok for a child who was eight years old on
9/11–to then have a friendship with Osama bin Laden later in life as an
–comment at Free Republic on Obama’s friendship with Bill
Death by 1000 Papercuts

It matters not that Obama has since denounced Bill Ayers, who after 9/11 said his organization, the Weather Underground, which threatened and bombed domestic government agencies and buildings, and in doing so murdered people, said his organization "didn't do enough.",GGLJ:2008-38,GGLJ:en&q=weathermen

It doesn't matter, because once the connection has been made, once a man serves on several boards with such a terrorist--who is reformed and educated yet who says his group "didn't do enough,"--and who launched his campaign with the help of the terrorist--in his living room as has been reported--it is irrelevant whether he cuts the connection and denounces the man who he served with and who helped him get his political start. By the time the media and public finds out, it is simply too late to back out of the events that took place.

Obama reputedly did not cut his ties with Ayers until 2002, but as "Just a reminder: in 2001, for an article in Chicago Magazine, Barack Obama’s friend William Ayers proudly allowed himself to be photographed stepping on a United States flag." from little green footballs

But the larger issue is not only Ayers. It is Obama's connections with other people whom the public and the critics have had to denounce, like the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, and Ayer's wife, Bernardine Dohrn, who during the days of the Weathermen carried C4 plastic explosives on her body in the manner of Muslim "suicide--(i.e., homocide)--bombers."

What is "issue oriented" about McCain's attacks on Obama's associates relates directly to the poor judgment of Obama in choosing his associates. And that is an issue we cannot afford to ignore.

As was mentioned in yesterday "exceptionalism also refers to the egalitarian, justice-oriented America. "In 1835 Alexis de Tocqueville discussed American exceptionalism in 'Democracy in America', and he is still correct. There was then and there continues to be now in this country a remarkable commitment to liberty, egalitarianism, individualism, and laissez-faire values." But exceptionalism, in the minds of some, also refers to the egalitarian, justice-oriented America.

"At least one of Senator Obama's leading foreign policy advisers, Samantha Power, wants to recapture that interventionist spirit."

And that is what may be so disconcerting about an Obama Administration: Who among the foreign leaders Obama would be free to have a discussion with "no preconditions," would he choose to associate with? Some of the nations of the world "who don't like us very much," to quote John McCain, have already given their approval to the idea of our electing "President Obama."

Islamic Takeover of U.S. Already Under Way

Author Brigitte Gabriel, an expert on terrorism, is warning the United States should be fighting Islamization. She should know: She watched it happen in her native Lebanon.
"Lebanon used to be the only majority Christian country in the Middle East," Gabriel told radio talk show host
Andrea Shea King in a recent hour-long interview. "They tried to impose their way of thinking on us, and they succeeded," she said.
Gabriel is fearful that terrorists believe now is the time to strike at America, while it is distracted by financial tension and election turmoil. condensed from WorldNetDaily Exclusive
