The Obama--Ayers Controversy is not Going Away

Sphere: Related Content

Obama has to explain his association with terrorist Bill Ayers and he has to do it now. His protestations that he was "eight years old" at the time of Ayers violence rings hollow with me and I suspect many others as well (including liberals).

The Obama campaign instead has chosen the tack of intimidation to keep the story under wraps and it's now to the point that the God-given right of Freedom of Speech is under attack by the Democrat nominee. This from the AIP:

The Barack Obama campaign has now sent a second letter to the Department of Justice calling for the prosecution of one of American Issues Project’s donors for his role in funding a political advertisement in full compliance with all election laws.

“Having failed in its attempts to get our legal, factual and fully-supported ad off the air, Barack Obama’s campaign now wants to put our donors in prison for exercising their right to free speech,” said Ed Martin, American Issues Project’s president. “These over-the-top bullying tactics are reminiscent of the kind of censorship one would see in a Stalinist dictatorship, with the only difference being that those guys generally had to wait until they were in power to throw people who disagreed with them into jail.”
Please keep up on this important issue as it is an alarming vision of what we could expect in an Obama administration. Michelle Malkin is writing great pieces about this daily.

I for one will not let this crucial story go. A guy who is now the Democrat nominee was associated with a man who waged war against this country. He has never apologized for his actions and didn't go to jail for the crimes simply because charges were dropped on a technicality. Think if John McCain had been shown to have an association with Timothy McVeigh and you'll grasp the significance.
