Connecting The Dots

A Democrat, no less, refused to endorse Barack Obama recently because "He’s got some bad connections, and he may be terrorist connected for all I can tell."

Cue outrage from other Democrats and a subsequent apology from the man in question, Fred Hobbes-

“I was not as well prepared as I should have been when speaking with reporters, and I should have taken more time to research Senator Obama’s positions."

He also tried to blame it all on Fox News. As AllahPundit helpfully points out though, Barack Obama is connected to terrorists. Their names are William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn and they were members of a terrorist organisation which not only declared war on the United States but planned to murder American soldiers in a bomb attack on a Fort Dix NCOs dance. This is how they described the event-

What we wanted to do here was deliver the most horrific hit that the United States government had ever suffered on its territory. We wanted to light it up. Our slogan was bring the war home, and we really wanted to give the United States and the rest of the world a sense that this country was going to be completely unlivable if the United States continued in Vietnam, and that was the goal of this group.

Only a work accident (the bomb detonated prematurely at a safe house) prevented the mass murder from being committed.

So, yes, Fred Hobbes, you were right- Barack Obama does indeed have ties to terrorists: Bill Ayers who said, "I don’t regret setting bombs," and "I feel we didn’t do enough." And also Bernardine Dohrn who once praised Charles Manson as a symbol for her troops, "Dig It. First they killed those pigs, then they ate dinner in the same room with them, they even shoved a fork into a victim’s stomach! Wild!"

Note that when called on the unsavoury connection Obama didn't throw Ayers under the bus, he defended him. And he thinks he has the judgement to be President of the United States of America?
