Video flashback: Obama touts experience at nonprofit founded by Ayers

posted at 3:05 pm on September 15, 2008 by Allahpundit

Via Ace, ignore the bad superhero-cartoon soundtrack and focus on The One listing his time at the Annenberg Challenge as a reason to send him to Congress in 2000 (he lost in the primary). Tom Maguire, the rightosphere’s resident Annenberg sleuth, provides a quickie fact check: Contra the video’s assertion, no one’s proved (yet) that Ayers had a hand in hiring Obama but it’s probably a safe bet given his role in founding the institution. Who cares? Why, the media does — or rather, it would if it were Sarah Palin misrepresenting the extent of her relationship with an unrepentant terrorist. Bear that in mind as you segue from the first video to the second, from the ABC debate in April, in which St. Barry conspicuously “forgets” the Annenberg pedigree he touted eight years before when questioned directly about Ayers by Stephanopoulos. Lefty blogger Jeralyn Merritt flagged that at the time as a curious omission. Little did she know.

As always, the shots from Hillary are as smooth and tasty as an ice cream sundae.

Update: Good news. Palin doesn’t have to misrepresent her connections to terrorists; she’s a terrorist by demographic.

Well, Gee. Glad I missed out being a terrorist because I live one state away from that hotbed of evil scary rural people of the Pacific Northwest.

One wonders what the people of Portland and Seattle would think of this?

But that’s okay–when all those backwoods terrorists vote instead of blowing up something, unlike your ACORN types, what will you say, miss Inquirer person? Oh, wait–that’s a sexist comment since I didn’t use “Ms.”

No no no no no, there are only terrorists on the right. Neo-Nazis, abortion bombers, etc. On the left they just call them freedom fighters and all is good. Ayers was just an overzealous freedom fighter.

I agree if someone supports “Live Birth Abortions”, maybe they should get the death penalty.. Why not?

Killing a live born Baby is no different than killing a live adult person.

If you kill a Live born baby, it is murder.. just a fact.

If you do not give a Live born Baby, prompt medical care and the baby dies as a result, then it’s negligence and the person could be prosecuted.

Life is above Obama’s pay grade why does he get to make these decisions?

Perhaps somewhere on the record, Palin has publicly condemned the radical politics of her region.

Wow, I’m glad there were never any radicals in Connecticut. Well, since I live near DC now, I should denounce the radicals in my demographic region:

I hereby disassociate myself from gun-grabbers, anti-school-choicers, and the Democratic Congress.

Phew, now I can be blessed by the NE liberal elite.

Elizabetty on September 15, 2008 at 3:14 PM

Agreed.

The truth about Obama’s past is devastating enough to secure the White House for McCain/Palin. It’s a shame that Obama’s connections and past decisions don’t get a fraction of the scrutiny Palin’s 3rd cousin’s kindergarten teacher gets.

I’m glad to see that McCain has picked up in the polls. But with the election coming closer I’m also getting a bit worried that it might not be enough to ultimately win.

Just think about what Obama would do as president. Extrapolate from his past: the friends he chose, the decisions he made, the accomplishments that are noteworthy for their lacking.

What would make anyone think that Obama is really going to improve anything? His promise to do so? Like his promise to do townhall meetings with McCain? Or his promise to accept public financing of his campaign?

Even people who agree with his policies must be worried. I wouldn’t trust Obama with my stuffed animals.

I forgot about Hillary saying this, “I wish the Republican would apologize for the disaster of the Bush/Cheney year and not run anybody. Just say that it’s time for the Democrats to go back into the White House.”

This exposes that at the base Democrats are not really democrats. They think they deserve to be elected. If this was the way things work then the Republican should have control of the House until 2036, because the Demos controlled it from 1952-1994.

If Hillary believes this, it must be a pretty widely held belief among the Democratic base. I think that this belief contributes greatly to the rage that the Demos have against Palin. And if you think the rage that they have about Palin is bad, just wait to see the rage after McCain/Palin are elected. Every mayor of the major cities in this country need to be prepared for the riots.

rockhead on September 15, 2008 at 3:35 PM

It is not the association with Ayers here that is significant, but the millions he wasted in his position as an ‘executive’ with absolutely zero results that should speak louder.

Just as his campaign is now bleeding cash. Someone who can run a country?

CUS on September 15, 2008 at 3:37 PM

There is no evidence that Palin was ever affiliated with white-supremacist groups during her years in Idaho or at home in Alaska. On the other hand, the beliefs of ultraconservative, evangelical churches like her family’s come dangerously close to those of the Christian Identity movement of those years. Likewise, Palin’s husband was a member of a political party whose members favored secession for Alaska, suggesting an affiliation with radical antistatism.

Perhaps somewhere on the record, Palin has publicly condemned the radical politics of her region. But it is hard to know where she stands on issues of race, equality and diversity. Thus it is high time to review the cultural ideals and models of the radical rurals from the Great White Northwest and find out for sure where Gov. Palin stands.

Got it. Governor Palin once lived in Idaho, therefore we can legitimately examine whether she is a skinhead. Of course, Obama’s solid-as-concrete connection to Bill Ayers is met with a big HO HUM.

And they thought Joseph McCarthy was bad.

Obambi really wants to get rid of Ayers now. Wonder when he told us all to put “air” in our tires, may be it was a subliminal message to put “AYERS” in our tires, some Chicago code words to get rid of Ayers. :(

What the hell is Hilary dancing around for? She was being way to deferential. “Well, we know that this is something the Republicans will use…” No “sweetie” you needed to hit it harder apparently. That’s why you are riding the pine while Barry gets wiped all over the floor by McCain’s campaign team. God, I hope McCain has these Ayers ad ready to go next month!

KrisinNE on September 15, 2008 at 4:00 PM

And what about his links to Raila Odinga in Kenya, Louis Farrakhan, Frank Marshall Davis, the Alinsky crowd, Hamas, Hezbollah, et al? These people are not just America haters; they are and were perpetual America haters. And it does not end here but this radical association goes into his religious leanings with Pflegger and Rev. J. Wright!

I never in my life thought I would see someone who is this linked to terrorism be a possibility for President. This is not just about fighting the Left anymore either. This is an all out war to save our country from certain annihilation from the most radical views of mankind that we have only observed from a distance. We have been able to view this type of ideology from afar as we look at Russia, East Germany, North Korea, parts of Africa, South America and solid Islamic countries. Now, this Marxist ideology is a breath away from giving us a more up close and personal look at what these countries have suffered, and are suffering under. Shockingly 45 million mind numbed, robots out there think Obama’s ideology is swell and are planning on pulling a lever for him come November. Not to sound elitist, but for those of us that have traveled to countries that suffer under a socialistic government or seen former East Berlin; I sometimes wish I could load those 45 million up and drop them off in one of these countries and see how long before they have a different view of America upon their exposure to the real world outside our boundaries. I do not think these Obama loving Americans could take the crude toilet paper, or the lack thereof! LOL!

I sincerely hope after this election is over, provided McCain does win, I hope the RNC and other groups attack this problem of knowing just how good we have it here in America and how democracy works. We may not be so lucky the next election, and one of these days the Dems may not have such a flawed candidate. Sometimes I think Obama might have just been a trial balloon.

The project appears to have failed to achieve any of its stated, measurable educational goals. For example, a comprehensive study by the Consortium on Chicago School Research concludes:

“Results suggest that among the schools it supported, the Challenge had little impact on school improvement and student outcomes, with no statistically significant differences between Annenberg and non-Annenberg schools in rates of achievement gain, classroom behavior, student self-efficacy, and social competence.”[5]

Not only was this organization founded by a terrorist, it was also a complete failure.

You know, Bill Ayers is a media whore, and it’s really too bad that someone capable of taking him on (certainly not O’Reilly) can’t lure him out into the open, especially since his book tour glorifying the Weathermen was so rudely interrupted by 9/11.

As an (ex-pat) Portlander, I can tell you that the only intolerance I’ve come across in the Northwest (a beautiful part of the country) is the aggressive intolerance by the Left.

Try going to a leftist rally in downtown Portland or Seattle with a McCain-Palin t-shirt and watch the response. (Far, far more negative than if you went to a with conservative demonstration with an Obama-Biden shirt; but that’s entirely hypothetical because that kind of rally would never take place.)

Oh, good ones. Though with caffeine the E and I are also in separate elements: caffe-ine. Cf. ex. gr. nicot-ine and coca-ine, &c.

The OED gives this for seize:

“a. OF. saisir, seisir (mod.F. saisir) to put in possession, to take possession of, to take hold of = Pr[ovencal]. sazir (whence It. sagire):—Frankish Latin (8th c.) sacire in the phrase ad propriam (or ad proprietatem) sacire, to take into one’s own possession, to appropriate. As the word sacire is replaced by ponere in another example of the formula, its source is commonly believed to be the Teut. *satjan to place: see set v.1″.

(For what it’s worth.)

Tzetzes on September 15, 2008 at 6:30 PM

Bear that in mind as you segue from the first video to the second, from the ABC debate in April, in which St. Barry conspicuously “forgets” the Annenberg pedigree he touted eight years before when questioned directly about Ayers by Stephanopoulos.

It really bothers me that Obama can lie so easily, not even miss a beat, just lie and stare and hold that lie as if it was reality. Among the many reasons why I find Obama rejectable.

Earlier, someone else mentioned Carly Fiorina — I agree, she’s an immense talent as spokesperson for the McCain campaign (or at least, offering her commentary as a McCain supporter), after hearing her earlier today. I would really enjoy hearing ongoing commentary from Fiorina, particularly as to Obama’s preposterous statements (“gaffes” is too nice a term to use in his regard).
