Obama's Chickens Coming to Roost

The North Carolina GOP aired an ad tying local Democrat candidates with the Reverend Wright. John McCain has denounced the ad. It seems pretty tame to me. You don't have to be very creative to think of a whole lot worse. Powerlineblog has posted a series of MP3's of unrepentant terrorists and Obama aquaintances Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn talking about revolution, the future of revolution, strategies to bring revolution, bringing "America to her knees" ...(yawn). Compounding the problem for Obama is these recordings are from some sort of SDS reunion from as recent as 2007, not when the Senator was 8 years old.

Depending on how close and "friendly" their relationship is, then compromising photos may follow. If that happens someone will certainly ask for Senator Obama's opinion on Ms. Dohrn's quote on the Manson Family murders of Sharon Tate and others:
"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!"
I don't think he'll settle that question with "just let me eat my waffle" or "c'mon Katie, I was only 8 years old".

It appears Obama's chickens might be coming home to roost.

What might save him in the primaries is Hillary's connection to the Weatherman. Her husband pardoned members Susan Rosenberg and Linda Sue Evans, shortly before leaving office in January 2001. Do you think they are kicking themselves for that move? It would be nice to know if those two were in attendance at the reunion mentioned above.

I not only think it is fair to saddle Obama with the Reverend Wright and Bill Ayers, I think it is fair to pin the radicals on anyone who supports Obama for Commander in Chief. On second thought, don't pin it, just slap it on their back like a Post-It-Note that says "Kick Me" as you pass in the hallway and say "Hey, Buddy!" Come to think of it, maybe that's what McCain is doing?

Obama has not distanced himself from these characters. In fact, with the Reverend Wright, Obama said "I can no more disown him than I can my white grandmother - a woman who helped raise me...". Republicans should tell every Democrat politician down the line, that if you support Obama to be the leader of this nation, be prepared to defend his relationship with the Reverend Wright and The Weatherman. President Truman said "The Buck Stops Here". Think of this as the new trickle down.
