    A caricature is something that is exaggerated about the person, not things that are true.

    Pals around with terrorists - true
    Apologizes for America - true
    Bowed to Raul Castro - true - photo evidence
    Narcissist - true - even you can admit to that
    Death Panels - coming if not already here

    The other things who knows.

    The assumption here is that people can't think for themselves and only know about Obama through Fox or Limbaugh.

    That is extremely insulting.

    "Pals around with terrorists" -- False.
    Apologizes for America -- Barely true, and you know what? There's some stuff we should apologize for.
    Bowed to Raul Castro -- Nonsense. That was not a bow.
    Narcissist -- I don't believe in playing Armchair Psychologist, unlike so many on the right who feel fully entitled to do so.
    Death Panels -- Oookay.

    Denial. Nice

    Are you denying his relationship with Ayers? He isn't.

    I'm not denying that he knows Bill Ayers. I am denying the right-wing narrative of the nature of said relationship, since there's little to no evidence to support it.

    Obama went to a party for himself in Ayers house. Why would Ayers throw him a party in his house if they were casual acquaintances?

    Do you throw parties for people you don't know?

    Define "pals."

    Of course, Ayers' involvement in radical left activities was long in the past by the time he and Obama met in 1995, and their relationship certainly doesn't appear to be anything other than serving on the same board of directors for for a foundation and serving on a couple of panels together. Ayers himself is on record saying he barely knew Obama.

    Ayers Decries GOP Tactics, Says He Is Not Close to Obama

    "Pal around together? What does that mean? Share a milkshake with two straws?" Ayers said in his first interview since the controversy began. "I think my relationship with Obama was probably like thousands of others in Chicago. And, like millions and millions of others, I wish I knew him better."

    Do you throw parties for people you don't know?
    You do when one of the co-hosts (State Sen. Alice Palmer) is introducing a potential candidate to donors in anticipation of endorsing him. Which is exactly what happened.

    I'll tell you what -- Ayers didn't ghostwrite Obama's book or pay his college tuition, as some of the wingnutosphere would have you believe.

    I have no idea how it was used by whoever said it. Obama is a terrible president sure, but his relationship with Ayers does not make him worse or better.

    The Washington Post is the same as Fox News.

    Who said or is even claiming any of that?
