Obama crowd cheers Ayers

The NY Daily News reports - - -

… William Ayers . . . told a Manhattan panel discussion audience he was tired of being used as cannon fodder in America's political wars. …

Ayers, a University of Illinois education professor in Chicago, has mostly kept a low profile since McCain started using him as a poster boy for Obama's supposed left-wing leanings.

He kept quiet as Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin accused Obama of "palling around with terrorists," a dig at the fact that Ayers and Obama once served on a charity board together. [The Daily News is minimizing to the point of significant distortion when all it says is “Ayers and Obama once served on a charity board together. - - JinC]

The press was barred from the discussion yesterday at the Stella Adler Studio of Acting near Gramercy Park, but a Daily News reporter managed to get inside.

The former member of the Weather Underground beamed at the attention paid by the audience of about 60 people, many of whom were decked out in Obama gear.

The crowd gave Ayers a warm welcome, guffawed at jokes about "redistributing the wealth" and nodded at his complaints about the "Republican revolution."

After the talk was over, event organizers attempted to sneak Ayers out a back door to avoid the media. . . .

The entire Daily News story’s here.


Sixty is a small crowd in terms of presidential politics, but I think if you a had crowd of 60,000, most of whom were decked in Obama gear and/or wearing Obama buttons, and they thought the press wasn’t there, Ayers would get would cheers.

Do any of you know one person who’s said: “When I learned about Obama’s relationship with Ayers, and that Ayers is an unrepentant terrorist, I was disgusted to think I was considering voting for Obama?”
