Last night on Fox News with Brit Hume, Mara Liasson, national political correspondent for the Obama-cheerleading National Public Radio network, tried to “mellow out” Sen. Obama’s relationship with unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers.
Liasson offered a version of Obama’s shill that Ayers is just a guy who lives “in the neighborhood.”
In Liasson’s version, the Obama-Ayers relationship mostly had to do with them meeting “at school functions” because Obama’s and Ayers’ children went to school together.
Liasson even quoted Obama’s campaign manager David Axelrod as her source.
If you’re aware of how the liberal/leftist Obama-cheerleading NPR has been “reporting” the campaign, you’re not surprised by what Liasson said or by her relying on Axelrod as her source.
What better source an NPR correspondent than Obama's top guy?
Liasson’s spin seems reasonable as long as you don’t know Obama’s and Ayers’ kids didn’t attend school together.
As Bob Owens at Pajama Media has reported:
Trouble is Axelrods dissembling for Obama has been discredited quite a while ago.
Axelrod also tried to excuse the extent of Obama’s involvement with Ayers, stating, “Bill Ayers lives in his neighborhood. Their kids attend the same school. … They’re certainly friendly, they know each other, as anyone whose kids go to school together.”
It’s an obvious fiction pitched by Axelrod, since the Obama children are presently in elementary school, while Ayers’ children are all grown adults, but the Ayers-Obama family connection doesn’t stop at the imaginary connections between the children.
