Billy I hardly knew ye . . .

Obama hardly knew Ayers?
Not according to these detailed accounts.
CNN actually reports truth, today: raising the issue of trust, just as Hillary Clinton did in the primary season.
According to the following information, Obama and Ayers were not only associated, they worked together FOR YEARS, supported each other, funded one another’s activities and promoted the same radical agenda: America is racist, homophobic, sexist, exploitive, jingoistic and greedy, and the only solution is socialist revolution IN EDUCATION AND POLITICS.
They even worked together to give an associate of Yassar Arafat $75,000.
In 1996, Media Coverage of Bill Ayers Was Too Extensive to Believe Obama Did Not Know Who Ayers Was

Barack Obama’s chief strategist, David Axelrod, claims Obama did not know that Bill Ayers was a domestic terrorist. You can see the claim here. I think that is fatuous nonsense. Why? Let me lay it out to you: Barack Obama, at Bill Ayers’ behest, began work in 1995 at the Chicago Annenberg Challenge.
Obama’s website tells us the L.A. Times (running an AP story), and the N.Y. Times assures us Obama and Ayers hardly knew each other, and certainly never worked together.
Not according to these stories.
“…Obama worked as CEO of the project that Ayers helped found, the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, for several years. Ayers served on the board at the same time. In an overlapping period, both men served for a few years on the Woods Fund, which notably granted $75,000 to Yasser Arafat’s associate, Rashid Khalidi*, during that time.”
Despite having authored two autobiographies, Barack Obama has never written about his most important executive experience. From 1995 to 1999, he led an education foundation called the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC), and remained on the board until 2001. The group poured more than $100 million into the hands of community organizers and radical education activists. The CAC was the brainchild of Bill Ayers, a founder of the Weather Underground in the 1960s.”

Apparently Mr. Axelrod and Mr. Obama think most Americans are stupid, or disinterested, or easily deceived. In any case, the simple fact Obama is lying about his association to Ayers disqualifies him for any public office, not to mention issues of judgment and character surrounding this controversy and the history of radical partnerships Obama is working desperately to hide.
*And guess what: notice the connection between Rashid Kalidi, the Palestinians, anti-Israel vitriol, Said, and fundraising for Obama—this from a Leftist blogger.
“Khalidi, like Ayers, held a fundraiser for Obama at his home. The Ayers event was in 1995 as Obama was making his first bid for the Illinois state senate. Khalidi held his event for Obama in 2000 when Obama made his failed bid for the U.S. House.”
“I’d like to hear him (Obama) distance himself from the expressed beliefs of Rashid Khalidi, just as he has distanced himself from objectionable remarks of Louis Farrakhan and Rev. Wright.”
