This video illustrates exactly who the group “the weather underground” is and how Bill Ayers is associated with them. Obama has had a very close and friendly relationship with Bill Ayers throughout his political career.
Ayers was very public about his life and aspirations. He wrote a book about it in 2001. Even a Chicago Magazine did a lengthy profile on him at the time which was complete with pictures of Ayers standing on an American flag thrown on the ground in an alley. Nevertheless, Obama continued to work with Ayers at the Woods Fund and work together on public events.
Considering the fact that all this information on Ayers was public knowledge I find it hard to believe that any politician would work with him at the Woods Fund and then work together on public events. Either Obama liked what Ayers did or he’s the most clueless politician to ever reach the US Senate. Obama apparently doesn’t read newspapers.
