Default Obama and Ayers Shared an Office (Update: For Three Years)

Crossing Paths Daily: Obama and Ayers Shared an Office (Update: For Three Years)

Quote:
Bill Ayers and Barack Obama shared an office. Ayers’ Small Schools Workshop, the one Obama directed all that money to is located at 115 S. Sangamon Street, Chicago, Illinois 60607 Here’s a screen grab from the website’s footer:



In 1998, the address for the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, where Obama presumably worked, was 115 S. Sangamon Street, Chicago, Illinois 60607. Here’s a copy of their 1998 tax return with that address:



The CAC moved to a new address sometime in 1999 or 2000, but the shared office probably persisted for at least three years. I can’t say for sure because 1998 is the earliest tax information available online. [Correction: I can say for sure that they shared the same building for the years 1995-1998. Here is a 1995 progress report from the CAC with the same address.
Not only the same building...but the same floor...





Mike Klonsky...Remember him?...he's the same guy Obama whitewhashed from his website because he doesn't want you to know that he gave hundreds of thousands of grant money to fund Ayers and Klonsky's small school initiative...

Now we find out that not only did he give hundreds of thousands of dollars to them, but he did so while working on the same floor...

2 points...

Point #1) The initial response from Obama supporters reading this will say "yeah, yeah yeah...big deal...The Ayers thing is much ado about nothing."...

EVEN IF YOU TRULY BELIEVE THAT, that's not the issue here...

The issue is Obama's lying about the relationship...

If you recall (but you don't want to, so I'll remind you), this is what Obama said of Ayers...

Quote:
“This is a guy who lives in my neighborhood
He purposefully did not disclose his TRUE relationship with Ayers...INCLUDING the fact they worked on the same floor...If if was "much ado about nothing", then why not tell the truth instead of HIDING it?...

He did the same thing with Wright...Lived his life working with him and acknowledging him, then when it becomes "politically inconvenient", changes his tune and pretends the relationship wasn't as much as it was...

Point #2)Here's a recent post from Spencer...less than 24 hours old...

Quote:
In my youth being called a liberal was a compliment! Almost everyone I knew then identified themselves as liberal but today very few of them would accept that label after it has been totally besmirched.As for socialism...today we have many acceptable forms of socialism and I still believe the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few..or..the one.Socialism has been far more successful than communism,a system that I truly despise.
I'd like to reiterate that Obama gave HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS to Ayers and Klonsky after Ayers made him president of the Chicago Branch of the Annenburg Challenge....

I'd also like to remind everyone of who Mike Klonsky is...

Quote:
In late 1969, Klonsky founded the October League, a communist party which in 1977 became the Communist Party, Marxist-Leninist. He was elected the party's chairman. The group opposed Gay Liberation and supported the regime of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, Shah of Iran. Klonsky made several trips to China beginning in July 1977, where he was warmly received by government and Communist Party of China officials and treated to state dinners.
It's not what the public knows about Obama that's the problem...

It's what they DON'T know...and Obama's lies of omission fuels it...

If he does this while running for office, why do you believe this leopard plans on changing his spots once in office?...

The story hasn't changed; we're just too dumb to get it straight

Quote:
William Ayers is just a guy who lives in my neighborhood."

"I talked to him now and then, but I had no idea what he had done until later. I will now repeat the phrase 'detestable acts' 27 times."

"Yes, like I said, he launched my political career in his own living room and I knew about the bombings and stuff all along, but I thought he had been rehabilitated. I learned about it some time after we met, which we have yet to do."

"Sure, we served on some boards together and spent tens of millions of dollars on an 'education foundation' that would frighten any reasonable person who learned anything about it, which they won't because the press isn't interested and I have no knowledge of it. As I have maintained all along, and I'm surprised you're misremembering this, I've acknowledged that Ayers and I were colleagues. But I never knew about those despicable acts he acted upon despicably, which I condemned then and still do."

"Did you know I was never actually a member of the Weather Underground? I resent that you're accusing me of something you're not accusing me of. That bad stuff happened 40 years ago, which means it couldn't possibly have repercussions now. Despicable acts are detestable and vice versa."

"The fact that I wrote a newspaper blurb (accompanied by my picture) for one of Ayers' books, a book in which I was mentioned by name, has been known all along. I am filing a lawsuit against the GOP for spreading this disgraceful lie. You are getting very sleepy."

"Did Bill Ayers and I work in the same office for three years? Of course we did. I've never denied that. But his desk was facing in a completely different direction than mine, and I wasn't even born yet when that building was constructed. Also, there are lots of buildings in Chicago. Look, this is boring. Can I be president now?"

As long as Obama didn't LIE about sharing a toothbrush...

That's the problem...These stories come to light well AFTER Obama purposely omits facts and wants people to believe Ayers was "just some guy in the neighborhood."...he COULD'VE been forthright, told the facts when first asked, and let the chips fall where they may...

But instead, he deceived the public...

I don't care if Ayers was the one who urged Obama to run. I don't care if he and Ayers kissed while sharing an office together.
Ayers is a great American. He's an educator. He was a 60's radical AS WERE WE ALL UNLESS WE WERE ASLEEP DURING THE VIETNAM WAR.

Seriously, Who isn't going to vote for Obama because of Ayers? I mean come on man.. I like that Letterman pointed out to McCain that G Gordon Liddy has said asposed Terrorist ideas. And is a criminal. But that McCain is his friend. And He has raised money for McCain........I can't believe I'm arguing any more Ayers stuff. I really couldn't give a rats ass about this McCarthyism. Guilt by association is ****. If you could point to Obama saying some radical crap then maybe we would have a discussion. But for every association of Obama's I can show an association of McCains thats equally silly. But its a complete waste of effort. I suggest that if you don't like Obama then don't vote for him. But passing along misrepresentations as some kind of proof......well I'm sorry were at this still.

Oh. Michelle is palling around with Dorn because she was on the FBI list NOT because
She is an Associate Professor of Law at Northwestern University School of Law and the Director of Northwestern's Children and Family Justice Center, and they are both interested in education and are both lawyers.
Thanks for enlightening me.

Repeating myself from another post:
ML King was on the FBI list compiled by J Edgar Hoover. ****e, I was probably on their list. Those were very volatile times. And guess what?
The Vietnam war ended before the fat cats wanted it to.
