So now (finally) Barack Obama is (hold the presses…) angry and upset by his former pastor’s comments!
Sorry, but it’s too little too late…
If Obama can’t “read” his own pastor of twenty years, whom he sat and listened to (almost) every Sunday, how can we expect he’d do in a face-to-face with America’s enemies and adversaries?
He’s already said he would gladly have a sit-down with such despicable characters as Hugo Chavez, Mahmoud Ahmedinejad, Hassan Nasrallah, Khaled Mashaal, Ismail Haniya, Kim Jong Il, Vladimir Putin, and Hu Jintao.
Maybe he already has enough personal experience with such radical anti-American types that he could actually get along very well with them, too.
Obama talks about how Bill Ayers (whom anyone could blithely call an unrepentant and murderous domestic terrorist) committed his heinous acts when he (Barry O.) was only 8 years old.
Well, I’m the about the same age as Barack, and I can tell you that I remember these reprehensible acts of the Weather Underground, and they were (and still are) well enough documented and verified that Obama could (and should) have taken a stance on them long before now.
Yet all he seems to be able to say is that they occurred when he was only 8 years old. Does that even matter?! People died from their acts!
Bill Ayers is on record (right after the 9/11 attacks, as a matter of fact) as saying, “I don't regret setting bombs. I feel we didn't do enough."
It’s pretty clear to me that any lack of a stance by Obama is still a stance for anyone who’s running for high office.
So millions of Americans will have to thoughtfully (hopefully) decide if his off-handed dismissal of Ayers’ infamous misdeeds is okay or not.
They’ll have to decide whether they can excuse someone who excuses and scoffs at domestic terrorism as the former Weatherman Bill Ayers has become a pet appointee of Mayor Daley, the current boss of Chicago’s political machine, to which Obama owes his political ascendancy.
Gosh, that was such a long time ago, yet there remains no statute of limitations on murder…
