    Barack Obama’s review of William Ayers' book

    Obama's review of Ayers' 1997 book

    [QUOTE]Barack Obama’s review of William Ayers' book

    On December 21, 1997, Barack Obama wrote a short review of William Ayers’ book A Kind and Just Parent: The Children of Juvenile Court, which had recently been published by Beacon Press. Here’s a photo of how the review appeared in the Chicago Tribune:

    Obama’s review of Ayers’ book says, “A searing and timely account of the juvenile court system, and the courageous individuals who rescue hope from despair.”
    While there is a FOX news story on this finding, 99% of the Obama-supporting MSM won't touch this subject.

    I wonder if this was the big surprise thing that the McCain campaign was holding onto. I don't think this will end up being significant enough, though. It's just a simple book review. It doesn't imply that Obama subscribes to any part of Ayers' extremist anti-war ideologies that he held when he was part of The Weather Underground. The whole Ayers connection thing is a stretch as is. It will be interesting to see if other media outlets will address this issue.

    Here's where the Obama/Ayers neighborhood is mentioned in Ayers book:

    I guess that Obama never knew the real Ayers, Farrakhan, and ... oh, yeah... Reverend Wright!

    So because they lived in the same neighborhood they all must be pals?

    Don't dismiss commonsense for party.. This is an exclusive neighborhood where certain people go to be near each other.

    I'm not dismissing anything for party. I just think it's a stretch to assume that they all pal around because they live in the same neighborhood.

    Of course the MSM won't touch this with a 10 foot pole! But they'll bash Joe the Plumber, investigate Cindy McCain's previously admitted substance abuse problems (not Obama's admitted cocaine use, though), and examine Palin's family for any questionable glitch.

    But, it doesn't matter if the possible president of the United States continued to associate to some degree with this terrorist who still wished he had done more following 9/11. Doesn't anyone see the incredible bias here? Does the ability of the media (whether or not controlled by Obama's cronies) to pick and choose and spin in the name of journalism scare anyone?

    There is more to it and you know this... Obama's wife sought him out to serve on a panel with Obama.

    Obama launched his carreer from ayers living room...

    Re: Barack Obama’s review of William Ayers' book

    As a side issue, I also find it poetic justice that in Ayers' book he cites the rich, powerful elite of all colors (he says it differently) living in their separated, posh Chicago neighborhood in very close proximity to those poor multitudes (in a separated neighborhood, of course) that the elite have learned to control and use for the elite's benefit to gain wealth and power (my interpretation).

    No, I'm just skeptical. I would have to see far more evidence. Though, even if they did have direct connections I see nothing wrong with Ayers. I think his comments about wishing he had done more were taken out of context and I think that he's moved beyond what he did in the past. However, that's just my personal view. Regardless of that, I think there's no doubt that the Obama campaign will be doing all they can to avoid this story. It should be interesting to see how this plays out.
