You don't need a weatherman to tell it's raining on Obama

A must-read roundup at Fausta's blog concerning Barack Obama's acquaintances (who just happen to be unrepentant terrorists).

Protein Wisdom would be a good place to start:

Larry Johnson notes that Obama has been less than honest about his relationship with unrepentant domestic terrorist William Ayers.

We already knew that Ayers held the first fundraiser at his home to help launch Obama's state senate campaign in 1995, and that they served together on the board of the Woods Fund for years, giving grants to people like former PLO flack Rashid Khalidi. What we did not know is that Obama was the director of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, a school reform organization co-founded by Ayers. He also links to a piece by Steve Diamond, law professor on the faculty of Santa Clara University School of Law, providing further background as to why this suggests Obama and Ayers may go back as far as the late 1980s. Granted, Johnson is famous for downplaying the threat of Islamic terrorism in the summer of 2001, but he has backup material this time.

Flopping Aces:

So we should all just forget about Obama's very bad judgement in befriending the likes of Rezko and Auchi, Odinga, Ayers, The New Black Panther Party, La Raza, Farrakhan, Mr. Wright, and the homophobe Rev. James T. Meeks.

Obama's ties to Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn go beyond mere happenstance.

It's no coincidence that his first campaign began at their home and that he served on the board of the problematic Woods Fund with them. When all of the facts are exposed, Obama will be as viable a candidate for president as Raul Castro.
