    Here's Obama's new radio ad responding to attacks on his relationship to Bill Ayers. Overall, I think it's really well done.

    "Bill Ayers is a professor of education who once served with Obama on a school reform board, a board funded by conservative Republicans tied to McCain," says the ad's narrator. "When Ayers committed crimes in the '60s, Obama was 8 years old. Obama condemned those despicable acts. Ayers has had no role in Obama's campaign, and will have no role in his administration."

    "And John McCain? With no plan to fix our economy, smears are all he has left," says the narrator.

    What a howler. :D Where to start? :)

    Here are the facts: Obama served on the Woods Foundation with Ayers. What is the woods foundation? You can tell by the grants it has given: it gave money to Trinity church when it was run by Rev. Wright, the racist preacher who railed against whites for 20 years while Obama sat in the pew, sucking it in. It gave money to ACORN, the leftwing organization which intimidated banks into giving subprime loans to unqualified minorities in the 1990s, thereby sowing the seeds of the credit crash which we all enjoy now, and also is busily engaged in election fraud in ten states in support of their hero obama. It gave money to the arab american action network, an organization with all kinds of anti-semitic actions and connections. But Obama lies and calls it a "schoool reform board". :rolleyes:

    The ad repeats the now often-debunked straw man of how old Obama was when Ayers committed his terrorist acts (demoted to "crimes" in the Obama ad's whitewash). The issue of Obama and ayers has ALWAYS been Obama's POOR JUDGEMENT in associating with an UNREPENTENT terrorist when Obama was an ADULT - but Obama and the Obamabots are too cowardly to confront that fact, so they raise the "8 years old" straw man.

    As for Obama condemning Ayers terrorism - that raises the question (which of course has already been raised many times, except in the lib media) WHY IS IT that Obama condemns everyone and everything he was associated with up to the point when he ran for president? He condemns his pastor, with whom he had the closest of associations. He condemns Farrakhan. He condemns Ayers. With brazen hypocrisy, he'd condemn his whole past life if only that will be enough for ordinary decent people to elect him president.

    The ad obviously wildly distorts the truth, is straw-man infested, and is a gutless cowardly evasion of the relevent issues.
