Ayers' group was awarded funds to use to improve education for Chicago school kids.

Obama was the Chairman of that group which decided where and how these funds were disbursed.

Instead of using the money to raise test scores or help make kids better qualified to get jobs, the funds went toward helping to indoctrinate them toward becoming little radicals and revolutionaries.

Obama is a deceptive radical in a smooth talking package.

Here's some info on why we should be talking about issues instead of accusations of terrorism from the 60's:

YouTube - KEATING ECONOMICS: John McCain & The Making of a Financial Crisis
The "Keating 5" was actually the Keating 3 with an extra democrat (the national hero, John Glenn) and a republican added to the investigation by a congress controlled totally by democrats in order to "soften" the impact of the three GUILTY parties.

It's readily available on many sites....so many that the lame stream media can't hide it anymore. CNN has it on their site.

Look up Annenburg Challenge, They allocated $100 MILLION around Chicago.

Yup we make it so simple that you just have to run away.

You could at least try to argue that the comparative changes are not comparative.....or something.

But I don't care. You guys are so hoping to get traction with this that you are embarrassing yourselves. Its not interesting. I don't care about Ayers. I don't care if Obama was on a board with him. It isn't and has never been relevant. No matter how hard you try you can't make a cake with a pile of ashes. Warren Buffet supports Obama. By your analogy he is in the same boat as Obama. Anyone who has served on the Ananburg board must br terror related by your own analogy. Look at this list of directors. Look real friggin close
