There was no Ayers "scandal". Outsideof being on an educational panel with Ayers as were many other people and a low key meet and greet at Ayers home the connection between the men is onionskin thin. Obama denounced Ayers actions in the sixties when he himself was eight years old. The Obama campaign could have played that game too. McCain appeared on G. Gordon Liddy's radio show and heaped praise on him. Liddy served prison time for his part in Nixon's attempt to subvert the Constitution and discussed with his nutcase radio listeners about the best way to kill a BATF agent. McCain was also part of a group formed by John Singlaub which funneled money to Central American military juntas and their death squads in the name of fostering "freedom". These connections are far more substantial than the ayers kerfufle but the obama campaign didn't play that game and concentrated on issues.

Robert Curt,stop making sense. How about the pass for the Black Devil Wright. Obama, now President elect, was so close to this clown, that he named a book after one of his speeches and he was Obama's mentor.
Wright was close friends with notorious anti American racist Farrakhan, that the two of them went to Libya, a terrorist State, to meet with Khadaffi, the leader of that terrorist state. And their was no real examination of Genius Obama's relationship with him. Think about it. Obama's mentor met with the mastermind of the Pan Am 103 bombing and he get's a pass.
And this clown Dupont from Easthampton, MA downplays these relationships. Have some more Obama kool aid.
Gonna be a long 8 clown years for you, isn't it?

"Can you imagine the reaction if John McCain had attended a fundraiser thrown for him in the home of David Duke?"

Can you imagine the reaction if John McCain had politically supported and personally funded a terrorist group in Central America? Or if he had been endorsed by a convicted criminal who sold 10s of millions of dollars of weapons to Iran and then funneled the proceeds to those same Central American terrorists? Or by a *different* convicted criminal who encouraged people to shoot federal agents to kill and plotted multiple murders to protect a prior corrupt and paranoid administration? How about if McCain chose as an adviser on Latin America someone who had engineered the release of a terrorist (who blew up an airplane in flight) and then moved on to a job astroturfing support for the white house (that was, oh-by-the-way, supporting those same terrorists to which McCain gave money)?

How about if John McCain served on an organization with an acknowledged member of the KKK?

All those things happened, and almost none of them got more than a paragraph in the "liberal" media.

Yes, and can you imagine if there was a senator who was once a member of the KKK himself?

So, having a fund raiser sponsored by a terrorist is not an issue? Attending a racist church for 20 years is not an issue? Being the second largest recipient of campaign cash from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac is not an issue? Refusing to wear an American flag pin when you're running for the President for the USA is not a big deal? The list goes on.

You mean the flag pin McCain didn't wear during all the debates? Or McCain pursuing the racist Rev Hagge's endorsement for over a year? Meeting with and extolling the virtues of the brutal dictator Pinochet? The list goes on.

So, Sen Byrd gets a free pass for having been a KKK member. And Sen Dodd can ramble on and on about how he could have always been a great senator, at any time in history. But all heck breaks loose when Trent Lott makes comments about Strom Thurmond. And Sen. Clinton gets a pass with her Ghandi joke. Yeah, right, no bias here.

So, being friends and being chummy with these people should now be ignored. Hmm, would you say the same if Obama was a Republican?

Like McCain's continuing friendship with the domestic terrorist G.Gordon Liddy.

I would have dropped it after the election. No one's talking about McCain's ties with the crazy religious right, the Keating 5, or him being paling with former KKK members. Because it doesn't matter. No matter how much you piss on yourself and throw a tantrum, the election is over with. If Fox News was to find footage of Obama tapdancing in the isle while Rev. Wright incourageing his congregation to bitchslap the first white person they saw, it wouldn't change squat. He'll still be the next POTUS. So instead of dwelling in the past, how about you do your best to help the country like a could facist conservative does. OK?

LOL - like THAT would've happened.

Maybe if the white Republican guy had graduated Harvard Law School magna cum laude and taught constitutional law for 12 years at a distinguished university, he might have stood a chance, but as someone else here said - it's time to move on.

Yes. My uncle was in the Klan 60 yrs ago. He saw the errors of his ways and worked for civil rights for more than 40 years. Does that make him a bad person? No. Lott and Thurmond were demagogues who used race as a weapon their entire careers.

Not issues just because you say so?

Very interesting. You think highly of yourself and your dimwitted opinion.

I personnally find a it a slap in the face of all memebers of the Military for this man to be President-Elect.

Everything we have fought and died for was just thrown out the window by the American people.
