Looks like it leaves you in the same place.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

I have requested that TNTdude explain in his own words what Obama's time served on a board of directors with Ayers, and all his other contacts with Ayers actually mean to him, and how these bits of data on the subject are assembled to mean something that should be considered as a negative aspect of his character and ability to serve as President of the United States.

Then take McCain's lifetime of acquaintances who have similar shady dealings, some having actually been arrested, tried and convicted of felonies, and some who have made outrageous statements advising how to more effectively kill ATF agents, and use the same yardstick used to assess Obama's Ayers "relationship" and arrive at a reasoned explanation of how Obama's past, essentially trivial contact with Ayers is more of a concern than McCain's near co-conspiracy with Keating, and repeated and effusive praise for Liddy as he accepted funds raised by Liddy, and other shady secret meetings with bad guys around the world.

It might help us understand what we are all apparently unable to see, or what you are unable to see. Jim

Yes, Bushie set the charges himself @ the Pentagon!

Hmm, and all this time I just thought it was the 800,000 people he murdered in Iraq.
