FactCheck on William Ayers

Click HERE for FactCheck.org's article on Obama's organizational meetings with Ayers. They attended board meetings together.

Big whoop.

I don't consider FactCheck to be that great a debunker.

Their analysis of ads from both sides seem flawed.

Speaking on the topic of the folks that are “around” Obama……

Where is the vetting / debuncking on the April 2008, story about the Los Angeles Times of "intentionally suppressing" a videotape it obtained of a 2003 banquet Obama was supposedly to have referenced his connection / friendship with Rashid Khalidi.

Mr. Khalidi has been very quiet when asked about this event. Why can we not see the tape, or why has this not been more widespread in the media?

Also it seems that Khalidi’s have been involved in holding fundraises in the past for Obama. In addition, Ayers and Obama were on the same board that voted to award Mr. Khalidi with a large chunck of money for his organization. On top of that Mrs. Khalidi’s service organization also received a significant chunck of money.

There are an aweful lot of “considences” in Obama’s past and current relationships.

The LA Times reporter is protecting his/her sources. Reporters do it all the time.

Manchurian Candidate conspiracy theories.

The url of a Washington Post editorial is below.

The writer has a reasoned stance on this latest version of guilt-by-association flapdoodle.

Yes - Folks protect their sources -Totally agree. But they still report the full story. The public should hear the story in all of its context!

If there is nothing to "hide" why not play the tape? By not hearing the full tape was message does / SHOULD that send to votes?

Obama's new nickname: Teflon Obama.....The "O" in Teflon stands for Obama.
