Every time I see "the collaberative" I mistakenly read it as "the collective."

capitano

So now the spin is that those lovable lugs, Ayers and the Weather Underground, never intended to hurt anyone and the fact that Ayers never personally killed anyone was by design. Keep digging Barack, keep digging.

Pofarmer

Let's not take him out before the end of the convention. O.K.?

Rick Ballard

From the NRO cite:

"The mainstream media has been derelict on the Obama/Ayers relationship."

What calumny! I believe that the mainstream media has done an outstanding job in keeping the relationship under cover. If left alone, I'm sure that they could have made it right through the election without ever mentioning the fact that a terrorist was instrumental in getting Obama his first position of executive responsibility. I find the suggestion that mainstream media is not wholly on the side of Team Obama to be without factual substantiation. They are doing their job according to their understanding of the purpose for their existence and it is cruel and heartless of those right wingers at NRO to suggest otherwise. Damned running dog capitalists.

Pofarmer,

Today is the day. The commie will have the nod before sunset and RW will be reviewing resumes for her 2012 campaign team before midnight.

Hey I resemble that remark!

Wow, double ouch.

From the Canadian Free Press reprint of a Capital Research Center article.

By the way, presumptive Republican presidential candidate John McCain isn’t much better on First Amendment issues. The Arizona senator has long been a fan of so-called campaign finance reform that limits free speech. But even though McCain hates the low tax group, the Club for Growth, which has been harshly critical of his policy positions, as far as I know he hasn’t tried to have the group or its backers prosecuted.

Barack: Love - 40.

capitano

Reading the Chicago-area blog comments on the Ayers connection, I keep seeing complaints from older Lefties that Ayers and the Weather Underground's emphasis on violence corrupted the non-violent protest movement. But even more interesting is the recurring complaint that Ayers escaped prosecution because of his family's money and influence.

I wonder how many homes the Ayers family had in those days.

Great Scott--following the Biden announcement, and after two nights of the convention, The One has dropped four points in Rasmussen, and now trails by one.

The people are not going to elect a guy they don't know, and no one really knows this guy. And anything they learn in the next couple of months is not going to be good for him.

I woke up in the middle of the night and saw a repeat of Greta with Stanley Kurtz - it certainly sounded like he had a bombshell in his hands. Nothing about it anywhere else.

Then when I learned they are building a replica of the Acropolis for tomorrow night's speech it just seems to me that the election is over. Obama is like a kid who gets a last wish before he dies at this point - or he is the most clueless oaf in the universe.

C'Mon Stanley--spit it out already! I did note one of the two articles I read about the 1,000 files indicate that Obama did cite the CAC chairmanship in his resume a long time ago. I do so wonder why he dropped it when he ran for President.

I am starting to pick up something else--he and his staffers seems surprised that anyone cares about Ayres' background. Are they really this clueless?

This is beyond stupid; maybe for the tv cameras it might look scaled correctly but for the people in the stadium it will be like being at a Spinal Tap concert. This is like something out of a mockumentary. Again, are there any adults associated with this individual saddled with huge self-image issues?

MayBee

I wonder why he thought he could get away with it.
It's as if he was confident people couldn't find out much about his past.

That is too funny (and too true). I've heard that now Springsteen and Bon Jovi will not be playing, and I'm disappointed; that would have been another grand mistake.

Gabriel Sutherland

This is the Axelrod-effect. Axelrod trained Mayor Richard M. Daley in effective countermeasures to deploy against critics. The primary countermeasure is "play dumb". The secondary countermeasure is "pretend like you never knew anything about it".

The problem here is that what works in Chicago doesn't work in Washington. In Chicago, Axelrod can lean on many figures to brush all the evidence either under the rug, or dismember it into many disconnected pieces that discovered alone are useless. These methods are employed in Washington, but the number of special interests is far greater and therefore the protection and isolation of damaging information is a market itself.

Obama and Axelrod need the Clintons to extend the Chicago Way into Washington. Team Obama is completely destroying their chances to win in failing to cater to the Clintons, expire her campaign debt, and absorb her supporters.

The elephant in the room is that the Clinton supporters maintain interests that conflict with the policy goals of an Obama Administration.

Danube of Thought

My God, Captain--you actually made me laugh out loud. I can still picture the eighteen-inch Stonehenge being lowered to the stage, and the argument that followed (it was supposed to be eighteen feet).

Jane, a very special good morning to you. You have already made my day.

Gabriel Sutherland

As I watch Obama events it's as if I'm watching Monty Python run for the White House.

If only we could be so lucky.

Danube of Thought

"The elephant in the room is that the Clinton supporters maintain interests that conflict with the policy goals of an Obama Administration."

I think a bigger elephant is that, wholly apart from policy differences (I can't think of any), the Clinton supporters want her to run against a Republican incumbent in 2012.

clarice

I don't think they're playing dumb on this one.. I think they honestly had no idea how much Ayres' would offend the voters. I think the CAC was dropped from the thin resume because even those dopes knew a failed exercise of executive power was worse than no experience as an executive at all.

clarice

The last time I saw a replica of the Acropolis was when Mr Gerleman made us make them out of matchsticks in 7th grade social studies. I hoped to never see one of those again!

MayBee

even those dopes knew a failed exercise of executive power was worse than no experience as an executive at all.

Good point. But the whole "friendly 'cause their kids go to school together" ruse was especially bold.

Jane

I wonder if they will duplicate the cats. Thousands of cats roam around the Acropolis at all times. Too bad we can't help them out with that.

Has Kurtz posted anything about the CAC since yesterday?

Both Instapundit and Hot Air have links to some pretty bad polling data for Obama. It explains why the Obama campaign is so desperate to kill this Ayers ad. Obama is tanking with "conservative Democrats." That's exactly the demographic that the Ayers issue resonates with. I imagine that the more play Obama's friendship with Ayers gets, the lower those "conservative Democrat" numbers will go.

That's what I'm hoping, ranger..and that the independents are not amused either by this playing in the sandbox with murderous thugs.

I'm a little concerned about the "Parthenon" stage at Invesco. It is a little disconcerting to imagine Obama rising up out of the ground as if being birthed by the goddess Athena, though it would make a great supplement to the Celebrity ad.

"The release of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge documents turned the sterile special collections room at the university's Daley library into a media frenzy. Television crews hovered at the room's entrance. Librarians scurried to copying machines to fulfill the requests of a roomful of reporters."

Hey--it's on Fox and a couple of blogs, right? Nobody really cares about Obama lying about his relationship with an unrepentant domestic terrorist.

Extraneus

I'm not sure if anyone has posted a reference to Andy McCarthy's comment from yesterday at the Corner, Bill Ayers: Unrepentant LYING Terrorist , but it says a lot about Ayers that at least I didn't know. For example,


First of all, "that moment in the townhouse" he's talking about happened in 1970. Three of his confederates, including his then girlfriend Diana Oughton, were accidentally killed when the explosive they were building to Ayers specifications (Ayers was a bomb designer) went off during construction. As noted in Ayers' Discover the Networks profile, the explosive had been a nail bomb. Back when Ayers was being more honest about his intentions, he admitted that the purpose of that bomb had been to murder United States soldiers:

That bomb had been intended for detonation at a dance that was to be attended by army soldiers at Fort Dix, New Jersey. Hundreds of lives could have been lost had the plan been successfully executed. Ayers attested that the bomb would have done serious damage, "tearing through windows and walls and, yes, people too."

Apparently he's now saying they never intended to kill anyone, just damage property. Unless you already know all about Ayers and Dohrn, I think the whole McCarthy comment is worth reading.

clarice

Yes, bad, I saw the trib article and I think there's one on USA today--but still no big new details. It's hard to review and write this up carefully so I expect Kurtz' article won't come out until later this afternoon. I'm going to do my swim and some errands and check back later.

I see three stories in this--what do you all think?
(1) The lie about the guy in the neighborhood
(2) the failure at executive leadership
(30 funneling money to folks with aewful backgrounds who were trying to but did not succeed in the one successful effort to improve Chicag's public schools.

At the same time (a) per Mickey Kaus other big city Dem mayors following DC 's Mayor Fenty are attacking the unions, realizing that change is not possible with the unions calling the shots;
(b) the Dem draft platform is calling for more partnerships with organizers remarkably like the failed CAC project.

Porchlight

I seem to recall reports of Obama and his staff being surprised at the blowback from the "bitter clingers" remark, too. I agree with Clarice that they really are that isolated in their Hyde Park leftism and clueless about the rest of the country.

That's been my mom's argument, by the way (she is a moderate Dem and my parents went to grad school at UChicago) - in a prog precinct like Hyde Park, Obama *is* a moderate. And Bill Ayers *is* just another guy in the neighborhood - it being a highly unusual neighborhood. So it's hard for Obama and his confreres to understand the uproar.

Sue

http://www.cnn.com/2008/LIVING/personal/08/26/o.divorce.dreams/index.html>This is where we are, folks. And this woman, and people like her, will examine the resume of Obama and find him wanting? I don't know why I am forever shocked that people think this way.

From the Chicago Tribune: LUN

UIC spokesman Mark Rosati said the library restricted access after receiving a call in early August from a "former representative" of the Challenge's board, who raised questions about the university's authority to make the documents public.

I wonder who was questioning authority as a "former representative." And were they still wearing their peace sign when they made the call.

Porchlight

I'm a little concerned about the "Parthenon" stage at Invesco.

I predict that it's going to look ridiculous and that the late night shows and Stewart/Colbert et al are going to have a ton of fun with it. Spinal Tap/Stonehenge will probably come up. I also agree that this is Barack's last hurrah; hope he enjoys it because it's all downhill from here.

BTW sorry if it's been mentioned, but did anyone else notice that the convention stage looks a lot like the lower part of a hot air balloon, with the podium squarely in the center of the "basket"? Hit and Run's pic at VIMH was what reminded me (plus my daughters were watching The Wizard of Oz last night):

If true, that is a relief to hear - I was really bothered by the idea that it was someone in the library who had sent out the alert. Even so, I still don't understand how the "former representative" got wind of Kurtz's plans to look at the records.

MayBee

They attended retreats together. Oooooh.

Rick Ballard

Ranger,

It's difficult to tell which error is going to be more costly for Obama. Picking a cafeteria Catholic to cover his proabortion stance and then having idiot Pelosi lying through her teeth to the extent that she drew a sharp rebuke by assorted cardinals, archbishops and bishops had to have had some impact.

I certainly believe that the "Who sent you?" story concerning the Ayers/CAC affair is going to resonate but it's one piece in an entire battery. Wright, Ayers and BAIPA have all bracketed the target. The 'Fire for effect' order can now be given and we can watch a rolling barrage from now until the election.

MayBee

from bad's link:
UIC temporarily closed the Challenge archives this month about the same time it received a request from a National Review magazine reporter to review them

What does "about the same time" mean? Are we supposed to think it was a coincidence?

bad

Clarice

I don't see a downside from any of those approaches.

Heard the following from a PUMA on the radio this morning: (I'm paraphrasing)

The Puma's are good Democrats who don't dislike Obama but consider "resume" to be very important for someone who is to run our country. They are going to vote for McCain because he has a better "resume" for the country. In the future when Obama has more "resume" they will take another look, but for now, for the good of the country, they will vote for McCain.

You might work in the resume angle and why Obama left CAC off of his resume when it was a tad thin to begin with.

PaulL

Unintentionally damning with faint praise: Maureen Dowd (link at Real Clear Politics) thinks Obama should be elected because Michelle raised two gorgeous girls.

Rick Ballard

"because Michelle raised two gorgeous girls."

Whom she and Barack took to Hate Whitey United every Sunday, except when the Obama's needed time alone. On those Sundays she left them with Uncle Billy and Aunt Detty and they got to play 'Hide the Bomb' all day long.

JM Hanes

Remember that Kurtz has 4 more days with the documents -- and only 4 more days to investigate and to decide what's worth photocopying as well -- so I wouldn't expect much from him unless he comes across some sort of smoking gun revelation. That seems unlikely to me; the files may have been strategically culled before they were even donated to the Library. The real story is probably going to be in dollars and networks which may not be immediately obvious and which may have to be pursued with the kind of persistence that bad has been bringing to the numbers.

Before he left for Chicago, he said he'd try to get something out as quickly as possible, but also warned that normally it would take months to pull it all together -- as it did with the big piece he did earlier this month.

Kurtz also has an awkward, though unavoidable conflict of interest here. Having solicited the public to apply pressure on the UI, one could argue he has a certain obligation to share what he finds in the documents, and the attendant publicity has certainly stimulated anticipation of his findings. At the same time, had the Daley Library not resisted his original investigation, he would be working under the radar right now, with a virtual lock on a potential blockbuster.

I recorded the late night rerun of Van Susteren, which I'm starting to watch right now. She just did the pre-break teaser for "breaking news" saying:

We have just learned new information about Senator Obama's relationship with Bill Ayers, co-founder of the violent radical group the Weather Underground. Has Senator Obama been totally straight about his relationship with the radicals?
That formulation sounds good. Note that she didn't use the word "terrorist." While Kurtz is working away, one of the best ways to help might be writing to Van Susteren and letting her know that there's a real audience for this story.

Point for consideration: The Ayers thing will not go over so well with anyone even center left. This guy made bombs that were set off in the Capitol and the Pentagon. He did not go to prison but skated on a technicality and daddy's money.

Just like the Watergate story, the Swift Boat story, and so many other things that start small, eventually all the MSM whores, but MSNBC Matthews and Obermann, will be falling all over themselves to redeem their creditability.


Everyone will cry Obama mislead them on the nature of the relationship with this "guy in the neighborhood". Unfortunately, Obama can't be the interviewed neighbor after the multiple murder tragedy who says "gee the guy was so quiet, we never suspected this, my kids played with his dog, he always waved when he was out watering his flowers and kept a tidy yard".


Look what happened with the Swift Boat Vets, news got out and money started rolling in to play the ads in multiple states. Nationally, everyone else saw the ads on the evening news or the talking heads.

The soundbyte from Ayers with Hugo Chavez in Venezuela deserves wider circulation.

Gee all that brainpower and not one of them thought about Charter schools as a possible innovation? Imagine that.
This isn't true. Groups that did receive money from CAC DID support Charter schools. Bill Ayers brother John Ayers IS an advocate for charter schools.

Many of the private funds that contributed to CAC also support charter schools. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation does support charter schools as does Chase Bank.

The operating guideline is always "poke the teacher unions, but don't push them".

Obama may be promising a nuts and bolts speech this time out, but the temple doesn't exactly seem like workmanly setting.

You know, Michelle's association with Dohrn could probably use some scrutiny too. I seem to recall some passing references which were subsumed by the interest in Obama/Ayers. Sure wish I could remember the specifics.

Rocco

In an paper by Cliff Kincaid and Herbert Romerstein, The Stealth Candidate, Kincaid claims he visited Ayers office and when he found no trace of Ayers, photographed Ayers locked office door.

Chesa Boudin has written a book promoting the openly radical socialist government of Hugo Chavez in Venezuela. The cover of Boudin's book is featured outside Bill Ayers office.

You'll also see on the photos we've taken of Ayers office door and wall that he has a big poster there of how he, Bill Ayers, had gone down to Venezuela to preside over some kind of educational conference. He gave a speech down there basically saying, "long live the Venezuelan revolution."

Romerstein contends that Frank Marshall Davis was a key member of a communist international network in Hawaai. Kincaid suggests the "Frank" Obama refers to in "Dreams From My Father" is the same Frank Marshall Davis.

clarice

jmh--Michelle and Dohrn both worked in the same law firm in Chicago and both were hired by Trienan who is a friend of Ayres' father. Trienan and Ayres' father set up Dohrn with her adjunct position at Northwestern which didn't require Bd approval.

Dohrn is just a few months younger than I and grew up in a near suburb of Milwaukee very close to where I grew up. Chesa's aunt (Mrs I.F. Stone) was a neighbor of mine until her death a few years ago. I remember when her neice was arrested. Her sister tried to raise Chesa but realized she was too old and turned his custody over to Ayres and Dohrn, thereby certainly making sure he'd stay radicalized.

MikeS

How do Obama's policies compare to the policies promoted by the Weather Underground during their heyday?

Does Ayers agree with Michelle that the country is down right mean?

Are Ayers and Dohrn proud of America?

Does anyone else see some parallels here?

MayBee

You know, Michelle's association with Dohrn could probably use some scrutiny too. I seem to recall some passing references which were subsumed by the interest in Obama/Ayers. Sure wish I could remember the specifics.

There was some speculation they'd known each other at their law firm, although that was ill-founded, I believe. Their paths crossed only briefly.
Michelle did organize a panel with Ayers and Obama, and was the first in the family into the Daley machine.
Other than that, I don't remember details.

Trienan denies he pulled any strings to get Dohrn into Northwestern. This is total BS as Trienan could say he had nothing to do with the hire while at the same time his Trustee friends would see exactly what they wanted him to do.

How is Chesa Boudin related to Mrs. I.F. Stone?

Sue

You know, the more you think about Obama and the CAC you have to think there is something he is hiding. He needs executive experience on his resume yet avoids mentioning his time at CAC. Education has been a big theme in his campaign, yet he avoids mentioning his time at CAC. If we had a non-biased press, they would be wondering the same thing. They probably already know what he is hiding.

The biggest stumbling block is coming up with material to merge into the starting photo. Has anybody noticed that Google image search seems to have gotten progressively less useful? It didn't even pull up a decent photo with the continuous screen running around the bird's nest, which would have been a great place for text. I briefly contemplated filling up the mosh pit this way, but wouldn't want to send the Obama campaign scurrying back to the Justice Dept! Found an image of the Olympic drummers, but it was produced by Getty, which might land me at Justice even faster. Maybe Obama as a centaur?
