    You see, in the world of presidential politics things like this do matter. Hell, such a deviant playing the role of King Maker at the local level should be denounced as ferociously as at the national level.

    The problem is more than compounded as Ayers used bombs as a weapon of terrorism, and he is unrepentant.

    It's no small character flaw on the part of Obama and others.

    None of your friends are terrorists, and I doubt you would associate with an unrepentant terrorist, unless it was your duty to do so.

    The questions continue... why would a political party turn a blind eye to a blatant cancer like that?

    IMHO you're having selective amnesia to hold Obama to account for using Bill Ayers to advance his political career in light of the sometimes troubling reality of Chicago politics when someone like Ayers can believe or not actually help you get elected to local office. Then turn a blind eye to not just PAST acts but associating with some of the most evil people alive in assisting them in carrying out future atrocities. Its difficult for me to think the political apologists who operate with two very different standards have any credibility and are either woefully ignorant of the histories of their side's heroes or they actually think the people they talk to are dumb as rocks and can be easily manipulated into despising anybody on the other team's side who decide to carry out a vilification campaign against. Again, using someone who did bad things in the past for your own gain is way different that helping someone do far more horrible things in the present (rape rooms, mass graves, torture, decapitations and chopping off limbs all on a grand scale and ongoingly) cannot even be compared but they ignore the later. Then they want me to take the pandering that insults my intelligence they're handing me and vote for their side.

    no way to honestly and logically answer this question unless 3 things are defined

    the canidate, the relationship and the terrorist.

    i could come up with yes and no examples pretty easy.

    This is a case by case question, not a blanket one.

    Ayers was totally a mentor for Obama. Obama never made any important decisions without ringing up old Bill. He was sort of like the Obi-Wan Kenobi to Obama's Skywalker. Except they're both evil terrorists.

    So it's worse to go to a party at an ex-terrorists house to celebrate one's succession to a state senate, than it is to support current terrorists as they are killing people? Strange.
