The Obama/Ayers Connection

Former leftist terrorist Bill Ayers in 2001:

"I don't regret setting bombs," Bill Ayers said. "I feel we didn't do enough."

In 2001, Obama was over 40 years old, had known Ayers for over ten years, and seems to have worked much more closely with him than he'd led the public to believe. More here and here.

Seems like radically poor judgment to me.

What if McCain had ties like this with, say, an unrepentant abortion-clinic bomber? Wouldn't you want every voter to be fully informed?

Update, 8/27: Well put:

the real troubling aspect of the Obama-Ayers relationship is that Obama comes from a political subculture in which Ayers is an accepted and unremarkable individual. Looking at Ayers, one is forced to ask exactly what kind of leftist extremism would be considered unacceptable by Obama and his cohorts.
