This is an excerpt of a FOX news story from their web site.
Senator Obama's ties to a former leader of the violent left-wing activist group the Weather Underground are drawing new scrutiny. As an Illinois state senator in 2001, Mr. Obama accepted a $200 contribution from William Ayers, a founding member of the group that bombed the U.S. Capitol and the Pentagon during the 1970s. Mr. Ayers wrote a memoir, "Fugitive Days," published in 2001, and on the day of the September 11 terrorist attacks, he was quoted by the New York Times as saying: "I don't regret setting bombs. I feel we didn't do enough."
For starters, Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the United States spent 9/11 at the White House with family friend, George Bush. The ambassador is the same man who invested in Bushes failed oil drilling business in Texas. Considering that 14 out of the 19 Hijackers came from Saudi Arabia, and they to bombed the Pentagon,I would like to see those connections come under new scrutiny. Also, if your Ambassador of Saudi Arabia, a country that gets its wealth exclusively from the export of oil, why would you invest in a oil drilling operation in Texas if it wasn’t a favor to Bush senior? Can anyone say, Pay off?
I am not condoning any act of violence in the name of change. You know, like bombing the wrong country for 9/11. A $200 contribution from a man who hasn’t blown up anything in more than 30 years seems a lot less harmless to me than maintaining a close family and business relationship with the ruling family of a country that finances radical Muslim teachings all over the world. My God, our President and his Dad, a former President, did business with Osama’s family before, during and after 9/11!
I am guessing there was a lot more than $200 that changed hands.
Is the best dirt you guys can come up with? Whats next, video of Obama toping off his gas tank? A waitress who now says Obama once tipped her 10% on a lunch?
This Presidents family considers the royal family of a country that won't allow women to drive, vote or hang out at a Starbucks in the company of a man as friends!
Give me a break.
