Anyone Else Troubled By This?

OK, this is not going to be hysterical or exaggerated. It's going to be a few things that I think are worth tying together.

On this date in history - March 1, 1971 (It was predawn on a Monday, so I was asleep before heading up the hill to Sr. Mary Esther's 5th grade class) -

A bomb exploded in a restroom in the Senate wing of the U.S. Capitol, causing some $300,000 damage but no injuries. The Weather Underground, a leftist radical group that opposed the Vietnam War, claimed responsibility.

Barak Obama *knows* Bill Ayers a Weather Underground leader who expressed "no regret" for his violent actions in a NYT interview which was published, ironically enough on 09/11/01. How well does Obama know Ayers? Reports vary. Obama also accepted a campaign donation ($200.00) from Bernadine Dohrn (a fellow Weather Underground member) during his first campaign for state senate.

Ayers and Dohrn were married, had two kids and went underground, literally, as fugitives from the law. They ended up in Chicago and were reported to have been early supporters of Barack Obama, hosting him in their home according to Ben Smith at Politico.

Ok, so what would you call a person who set bombs and planned the violent overthrow of the United States government? A terrorist. What would you call a couple living in Chicago, expressing no remorse for the horror they caused? A pair of terrorists.

So how do you feel about your Presidential candidate having a history of associating with violent, leftist terrorists?

I don't care for it at all.

I remember this being an issue when he was running for Senate there. Apparently this didn't disturb the majority of voters who decided it was just a "little thing" and didn't need to be taken seriously. *sigh*
