Hey pervert, you really need to quit worrying about other men and their sex activity. As that is starting to become a daily occurrence for you. As it's pretty obvious that you can only dream.

CNN: Obama’s lying about William Ayers
http://hotair.com/archives/2008/10/07/cnn-oba...
All CNN said was that they served on charitable boards together. Ayers had certain projects he push as did others on that board.

That political meeting was not arranged buy Obama & BillAyers had not invited Obama.

They were not friends. CNN did not call them friends.

You are lying.

Reagan....increased deficit threefold....expressed regret.....then Clinton fixed it.
btw...deficit now down near $500 billion. until we starting adding in the new increase from the Republicans.
Clinton's Republican Congress for six years made Clinton move to center and Clinton was just smart enough to follow their lead.

At least get the facts straight.

Obamacare will add plenty to the deficit soon enough. Patience...patience.

Ayers did not invite Obama
Obama didn't know where the meeting was as he went with the State Senator.
I've been to political meetings in people's homes and that does not make me friends with them.
Obama also served on a couple of charitable committees where Ayers al;so served. I've been on hospital boards, school boards, educational trust board, and the local Salvation Army board. These people became people I knew. Not friends
When you say Obama & Ayers were friends, you are lying.
When you posted the exurb from Ayer's book, you were too GD stupid to know Ayers was mocking people like you.
Obama and Ayers were lovers before Rahm stepped in and stole Barack away.

Any legislation that benefits veteran's is doomed as long as we have Republicans in Congress more focused on starting conflicts than ending them.
The last bill to be shot down, I believe, was in February. The Bernard Sanders bill called for 27 new medical facilities "to help a system strained by veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars." It had bipartisan support yet Republicans shot it down by attaching to it legislation calling for possible new sanctions on Iran. Iran!! "The issue of Iran sanctions ... has nothing to do with the needs of veterans," complained Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee Chairman Bernard Sanders of Vermont, the main sponsor of the bill.
"Republicans also raised budget concerns, forcing another key procedural vote that ended up killing the bill. By a vote of 56-41, the Senate failed to waive budget rules that would have allowed the bill to proceed. Sixty votes were needed and 41 of the chamber's 45 Republicans voted against the waiver."
Shame on Republicans!!!
http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/02/27/us-...
How did O'stupidcare start: The Senate scrapped every word of a House bill on veterans housing benefits and inserted more than 2,000 pages of O'bamacare. So not only did the democrats screw the Vets, they screwed the entire country.

For the second time in less than eighteen months, domestic terrorist Bill Ayers admitted he wrote Barack Obama's book "Dreams From My Father."

This time, it was recorded on videotape as he was speaking last Thursday at Montclair State University (video follows with partial transcript and commentary):

UNKNOWN QUESTIONER: Time magazine columnist Joe Klein wrote that President Obama’s book “Dreams From My Father” quote “may be the best written memoir ever produced by an American politician.”

BILL AYERS: I agree with that.

QUESTIONER: What is your opinion of Barack Obama’s style as a writer?

AYERS: I think the first book is very good. The second one was more of a political hack book, but the first book’s quite good.

QUESTIONER: Right, and also, you mentioned about the Pentagon and…

AYERS: Did you know I wrote it?

QUESTIONER: What’s that?

AYERS: I wrote “Dreams From My Father.”

CROWD: We know that.

QUESTIONER: You wrote that?

AYERS: Yeah, and if you could help me prove it, I’ll split the royalties with you.

[Laughter]

Oddly, this was not the first time Ayers made such a claim. Backyard Conservative reported October 4, 2009, after meeting Ayers at Reagan National Airport in Washington, D.C.:

Then, unprompted he said--I wrote Dreams From My Father. I said, oh, so you admit it. He said--Michelle asked me to. I looked at him. He seemed eager. He's about my height, short. He went on to say--and if you can prove it, we can split the royalties. So I said, stop pulling my leg. Horrible thought. But he came again--I really wrote it, the wording was similar. I said I believe you probably heavily edited it. He said--I wrote it. I said--why would I believe you, you're a liar.

He had no answer to that. Just looked at me. Then he turned and walked off, and said again his bit about my proving it and splitting the proceeds.

Now, less than eighteen months later, he's said this again in front of an audience with a camera taping the whole thing.

As Gateway Pundit noted moments ago:

Imagine the media onslaught upon discovering that a former unrepentant radical terrorist repeatedly admitted on video he wrote George Bush’s first book. We would never hear the end of it. Of course they play by different rules when it comes to Obama. This will get the usual “nothing to see here, move along” from the MSM.

Indeed. It seems quite unlikely this will get much attention anywhere other than conservative blogs and Fox News.

After all, why would it be at all newsworthy that the President's first book was written by a domestic terrorist? These same folks didn't care about Obama's association with Ayers, Bernadine Dohrn, and Jeremiah Wright when he was on the campaign trail.

Why should they care now?
