Obambi just played the "If only it saves one child's life then we have an obligation to give it a try" card. I can't tell you how many lethal "unique events" (only one life lost ever events) I have seen in the ER over 3 decades. If we had the Odumbo doctrine on "if only one life could be saved" in place YES we'd saved a few lives over the years but have no marshmallows, spin cylces in washing machines, bikes or sharp sticks for that matter.

I do not consider terrorists "heroes," no. No surprise that you'd lie and slander me about it, though.
Who did Ayers blow up? Who did he kill? When was he convicted of terrorism? Can you answer any of these?
C'mon, Georgia, you know you only use him to smear Obama. Admit it, be a man for once...:)
In 1970 William Ayers is quoted as saying, " Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, kill your parents, that's where it's really at."

At the end of William Ayers memoirs, Fugitive Days, published in 2001, he writes that he is "Guilty as hell, free as a bird—it’s a great country."

John F Kennedy said it best. He was ask if anybody could kill a president (the most protected person), his response was, yes, all they have to do is be willing to give up their life. As we have seen with all the perps. They do their sad deeds and kill themselves when challenged.

I'm somewhat familiar with the history of the Weather Underground, thank you. Did you have a point, other than the one that Ayers was a prominent member of the group?

Still looking for a point here, since I've never dispute that Ayers was once a member of the Weather Underground.

He was "guilty" of being a Weatherman, and they were "guilty" of opposing the U.S. government, particularly over the Vietnam War. Because they committed terrorist acts doesn't mean they were wrong to oppose the war. It just means they went about opposing it the wrong way.

No doubt you'd consider a warmonger, a terrorist, a draft-dodger, and an advocate of torture a "brilliant, successful man," you disgusting vermin.

No surprise that you'd put Mr. Obama in demeaning or menial jobs, it's what your kind think 'colored people' ought to be doing.

Maybe it jumped past you pookie, but Obama just negated the Doctor-Patience priviledge. Notice he didn't do the same and ask lawyers to rat on their clients. Most of them are in politics.

No Professor Fartsack, it is evil leftist/communist POS exactly like you who want the gulags brought back like Uncle Joe had so you can get rid of people who don't agree with you. I give thanks to God every time you post that in real life you are impotent and meaningless.

Do you just not understand that he was in the Weather Underground 40-odd years ago, and that he gave that all up for a more respectable career long ago? Or that Obama was eight years old when Ayers was a Weatherman?

What is it about that you don't understand? All of you right-wing liars keep pretending he was a Weatherman yesterday and turned Obama into a far-left radical, when sane people know that's utterly ridiculous and that Obama's more like what we used to call a 'moderate Republican?'

I mean, you're either dishonest or stupid, Georgia, which is it?:)

Aww, what's the matter, stalkerboi? Lunch hasn't arrived yet? Mom out doing something and left you at home? What do you think she goes out for every day that she won't tell you about?

I hope it's nothing BAD....;)
