TERROR VICTIM’S QS FOR BARACK
“WHEN John Murtagh was 9 years old, Bill Ayers’ friends tried to kill him…. It wasn’t personal. John’s dad was a judge presiding over a trial of some Black Panthers… John Murtagh- ”
“The night they attacked our home, they also firebombed an army recruiting station out in Brooklyn and police patrol cars outside of Greenwich Village,” notes Murtagh. “Three weeks later, they accidentally blew themselves up. They intended to attack the officer’s club at Fort Dix.”
Lay your cards on the table, says Murtagh. “Obama’s free to associate with Dohrn and Ayers; that’s his right,” he tells me. “But don’t hide the relationship, and be forthcoming and let people decide the significance of it for themselves.”
When did Obama know about Ayers terrorist background? My search for Ayers and Dohrn

…”So, did he know who Ayers was when he went to his home in 1995?
“My understanding is that when he went there, he did not,” Axelrod said.
Reporters noticed that clause — “my understanding is” — and pressed further. Did Axelrod ask Obama if he knew Ayers’ history when he first met with him?
“Yes,” Axelrod said.
And he did not know?
“Yes,” Axelrod said. “That’s what I’ve said — I answered the question when I was asked the other day. But no one’s suggesting that he never knew. I mean that’s not — we weren’t offering that. I wasn’t offering it — I was asked a question that you just asked me and just answered it. I wasn’t making an argument about it.”
I’m not arguing either. I’m just curious.”
So am I.
Missouri officials suspect fake voter registration
“Charlene Davis, co-director of the election board in Jackson County, where Kansas City is, said the fraudulent registration forms came from the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN. She said they were bogging down work Wednesday, the final day Missourians could register to vote.”….
FBI spokeswoman Bridget Patton said the agency has been in contact with elections officials about potential voter fraud and plans to investigate.
“It’s a matter we take very seriously,” Patton said. “It is against the law to register someone to vote who does not fall within the parameters to vote, or to put someone on there falsely.”
…On Tuesday, authorities in Nevada seized records from ACORN after finding fraudulent registration forms that included the starting lineup of the Dallas Cowboys.”
“Everyone wants their money back. They want growth back. They don’t want to pay soaring taxes, and they don’t want to pay $4 a gallon gas.
They don’t want the financial estates that the Greatest Generation have accumulated over a lifetime of work to be transferred in bulk into the coffers of the government and not the grandkids.
They like Obama. I like Obama. Nearly everybody likes Obama.
But I don’t want to put the country through Great Depression 2.0, and I don’t want a vast army of academics and social engineers descending on D.C. with plans on how to remake America in their own extremist image.
The race is tight and very fluid because the electorate knows the enormous consequences of the choice before them even as McCain struggles to articulate it because McCain embodies it.”
“…but McCain is going to keep making the one big point: This is no time for a rookie with big tax hikes, huge tariffs, expanding bureaucracies and a retreat and defeat foreign policy to take the helm.”
BLOGGER’S NOTE: I disagree with the term “retreat and defeat foreign policy”
Ignoring Reality Has a Price
…”Despite everything, the biggest fiscal problem remains, far and away, health care. Based on the rate that medical spending has been rising, the Congressional Budget Office forecasts that Medicare and Medicaid will take up 10 percent of G.D.P. within two decades, up from about 4 percent now. In today’s terms, that would be the equivalent of adding at least $900 billion to the deficit every single year, in perpetuity. It makes the cost of the bailouts look like a rounding error.
When it comes to health care, we have a situation that is blatantly unsustainable. With the right choices, we can prevent that. But so far, we instead seem to be hoping that the situation will magically resolve itself, which is a recipe for big problems and perhaps even a crisis.
Let’s see. That doesn’t sound familiar, does it?”
From an Obama ad “challenge the insurance companies”- what a joke, you don’t challenge them they challenge you. Try being in business dealing with one or a patient fighting one; you need big bucks to a law firm like his in Chicago.
Which one can LEAD, has been forthright, has not fudged knowing people who were instrumental in getting political recognition as a rookie, being a part of ACORN, understands the economy versus spout condescendingly about it to some unsuspecting hall and country audience members?
Live………..? or ………….. Memorex? Real, substantive? or a plastic copy (melting under the heat of reality, of objective journalism, of anger of democrats, PUMAs being manipulated)?
Melt image, melt.
See John run.
See Barack watch on the sidelines, saying nothing as little as he has to, thinking all his has to do is hold on the ball for the remainder of the game. This is not Hillary being handicapped by paid Superdelegates and a press that liked the story which would gain more eyeballs if they juiced it, nakedly revealing their previously veiled anger at Clinton & Company.
