William Ayers, the radical Leftist who was part of the domestic terrorist group The Weather Underground in the 1970′s, has given an in-depth interview to The Daily Beast and confirmed the fact that Barack Obama’s political career began in his living room with a 1995 fundraiser:
THE DAILY BEAST: There was a big hullabaloo during the 2008 presidential election over your relationship to Obama. What is or was your relationship to him?
AYERS: “I brief him every Monday in the White House, and he never listens! No. The truth is exactly what he said and what the campaign said in 2008. David Axelrod said we were friendly, that was true; we served on a couple of boards together, that was true; he held a fundraiser in our living room, that was true; Michelle [Obama] and Bernardine were at the law firm together, that was true. Hyde Park in Chicago is a tiny neighborhood, so when he said I was “a guy around the neighborhood,” that was true. Today, I wish I knew him better and he was listening to me. Obama’s not a radical. I wish he were, but he’s not.”
Actually, that is NOT what Barack Obama’s campaign said in 2008, as World Net Daily points out with this video of Robert Gibbs telling MSNBC’s Chris Matthews there was no fundraiser in Bill Ayers’ living room:
But it was not a “myth.” It was the truth, and Barack Obama has never told the truth about his many radical associations.[fbcomments]
