Bill Ayers for Secretary of Education?  Why not?

Sweetness & Light found this gem.

Hot Air has awesome coverage and videos here.

Seems Michelle Obama invited domestic terrorist (terrorist without quotes) Bill Ayers to a panel at the University of Chicago in 1997.

Michelle Obama, Associate Dean of Student Services and Director of the University Community Service Center, hopes bringing issues like this to campus will open a dialogue between members of the University community and the broader community.

Ayers, who spent a year observing the Cook County Temporary Juvenile Detention Center in Chicago, is one of four panelists who will speak on juvenile justice at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 20, in the C-Shop.

Guess who else was on the panel with Ayers?

Barack Obama!

Ayers will be joined by Sen. Barack Obama, Senior Lecturer in the Law School, who is working to combat legislation that would put more juvenile offenders into the adult system;

The original article from the University of Chicago is here.

So Michelle organizes the event and just happens to invite ‘the neighbor we don’t exchange ideas with’ Bill Ayers and her husband, Barack Obama.

Let’s not forget this dismissive lie from Barack Obama:

Just a neighbor!

Remember the joke:

Q. What does Barack Obama and Osama bin Laden have in common?

A. They both have friends who have attacked the Pentagon

Great article today at the WSJ by Stanley Kurtz:

Obama and Ayers Pushed Radicalism On Schools

The Obama campaign has cried foul when Bill Ayers comes up, claiming “guilt by association.” Yet the issue here isn’t guilt by association; it’s guilt by participation. As CAC chairman, Mr. Obama was lending moral and financial support to Mr. Ayers and his radical circle. That is a story even if Mr. Ayers had never planted a single bomb 40 years ago.

More “Kansas values”. There must be a lot of socialist/marxist types in Topeka.

WSJ’s John Fund has a great one today.

Obama Should Come Clean On Ayers, Rezko And the Iraqi Billionaire


Sometimes the Obama objections have merit, as when they exposed errors in Jerome Corsi’s sensationalized Obama biography. But sometimes they are designed to shut down legitimate questions. “They’re terrified of people poking around Obama’s life,” one reporter told Gabriel Sherman at the New Republic. “The whole Obama narrative is built around the narrative that Obama and [campaign strategist] David Axelrod built, and, like all stories, it’s not entirely true.” The stakes are high. If the full story of Mr. Obama’s relationship with Rev. Jeremiah Wright had been revealed before the Iowa caucus, he wouldn’t have won.

Nothing to see here, move right along, everything’s fine…

Fund continues:

Last April, the London Times revealed that Nadhmi Auchi, an Iraqi-born billionaire living in London, had loaned Mr. Rezko $3.5 million three weeks before the day the sale of the house [Barack Obama’s house] and lot closed in June 2005. Mr. Auchi’s office notes he was a business partner of Rezko [purchasing Wisconsin pizzarias] but says he had “no involvement in or knowledge of” the property sale. But in April 2004 he did attend a dinner party in his honor at Rezko’s Chicago home. Mr. Obama also attended, and according to one guest, toasted Mr. Auchi. Later that year, Mr. Auchi came under criminal investigation as part of a U.S. probe of the corrupt issuance of cell-phone licenses in Iraq.


– An Iraqi-born billionaire loans one of Obama’s big fundraisers, Tony Rezko,  3.5 million dollars to buy pizza joints in Wisconsin.

– Three weeks later Obama buys his house for 300K under market value

– Tony Rezko’s wife purchases the lot right next to Obama’s new house

– Obama then purchases a sliver of that lot from Mrs. Rezko for gardening purposes

Remember, nothing to see her.  Not newsworthy, move along please.

Wait! I had no idea Iraqi businessmen were so interested in pizza!  Must be the deep dish market they’re after.

What’s crazy -the Iraqi-born billionaire is scrubbing the internet of these stories.  He’s filling libel charges in the UK for anyone, including American bloggers, who writes poorly about him and Rezko.

The text to Obama’s speech is already out.

Click here for a summary.

As I type BHO is waving to the throngs.  No toga!  How disappointing!

So who is this William/Bill Ayers guy?

Why does the Obama camp NOT want you to know about him?

At the highest level those questions are easy to answer.

1) Bill Ayers is an unrepentant terrorist

2) Bill Ayers is/was a business partner, political supporter, and friend of Barack Obama

3) The Obama campaign knows 1) and 2) and does not want you to know this.

4) Barack Obama and Bill Ayers ran a completely unsuccessful effort to change, that’s right CHANGE,  Chicago Public Schools called the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, squandering tens of millions of dollars.

5) Barack Obama has misled the American people about his relationships with Bill Ayers.

How’s that for a new kind of leadership!

Here’s a great report about Obama’s big failure.

From Global Labor and Politics

In 2003 the final technical report of the CCSR on the CAC was published. The results were not pretty. The “bottom line” according to the report was that the CAC did not achieve its goal of improvement in student academic achievement and nonacademic outcomes. While student test scores improved in the so-called Annenberg Schools that received some of the $150 million disbursed in the six years from 1995 to 2001,

“This was similar to improvement across the system….There were no statistically significant differences in student achievement between Annenberg schools and demographically similar non-Annenberg schools. This indicates that there was no Annenberg effect on achievement.

The report identified the political conflict between the Local School Council promotion efforts of the CAC – such as the $2 million Leadership Development Initiative – as a possible factor hindering a positive impact on student achievement.

Conclusion: an academic failure but political success?

The Challenge allowed Barack Obama and Bill Ayers to work together, no doubt closely, in the heat of political battle to help disburse more than $100 million to allies, particularly in the LSCs, in the Chicago School system.

Under the circumstances, it seems more than a bit disingenuous of Senator Obama to dismiss Bill Ayers as “some guy who lives in my neighborhood.”

Over the next few days I’ll be doing the job the media won’t.  I’ll simply find creditable articles on the internet and synthisize them for you.

If only this had been done 3 months ago Hillary would be speaking tonight…
