Obama tries to silence his critics (again)
Thursday, 28 August 2008

Listen to this great interview of Stanley Kurtz, a writer for National Review Online and a fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center. Kurtz is reviewing the newly released Annenberg Papers, which apparently contain some interesting information about the relationship between Barack Obama and anti-American terrorist William Ayers.

Obama sent out an email to his supporters asking them to flood the WGN radio station with emails and phone calls. Here is an excerpt of Obama’s email:

Tonight, WGN radio is giving right-wing hatchet man Stanley Kurtz a forum to air his baseless, fear-mongering terrorist smears. He’s currently scheduled to spend a solid two-hour block from 9:00 to 11:00 p.m. pushing lies, distortions, and manipulations about Barack and University of Illinois professor William Ayers.

Here is National Review’s response:

Obama supporters risibly complain that shining a light on the Obama/Ayers relationship is a ?smear? and smacks of ?guilt by association.? A presidential candidate?s choice to associate himself with an unrepentant terrorist would be highly relevant in any event ? does anyone think the Obamedia would keep mum if John McCain had a long-standing relationship with David Duke or an abortion-clinic bomber?

But we are talking about more than a mere ?association.?

Bluntly, Obama has lied about his relationship with Ayers, whom he now dismisses as ?a guy who lives in my neighborhood.? Ayers and Obama have made joint appearances together; they have argued together for ?reforms? of the criminal justice system to make it more criminal-friendly; Obama gushed with praise for Ayers? 1997 polemical book on the Chicago courts; and they sat together for three years on the board of the Woods Fund, a left-wing enterprise that distributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to their ideological allies. Most significant, they worked closely together on the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC).

This story is only going to become more and more important as the campaign goes on. I think that as more Americans read about the Ayers/Obama connection, they will feel very uncomfortable about handing the keys to the White House over to someone that lacks the judgment to stay away from unrepentant terrorists.

Nichols: History Made in Denver
Thursday, 28 August 2008
John Nichols: In 1908, when Democrats first gathered in Denver, African-American activists asked the party to make a place for them -- inside the convention, in the platform and in the campaign to come. The motion died. One hundred years passed. A civil rights movement rose. And on Wednesday afternoon, at around 4:50 p.m., the Democratic party nominated an African-American man for president.

Klein: McCain Takes the Low Road
Thursday, 28 August 2008
Joe Klein: This summer John McCain has waged a nonstop assault -- from the derision of his "celebrity" ads comparing Barack Obama to Paris Hilton, to McCain's own filthy attack on Obama as someone who would "rather lose a war than lose an election." The Republican Convention will doubtless be another assault. The uninterrupted gush of negativity has successfully diverted the media's attention from the fact that 80% of Americans think the country is moving in the wrong direction.
