The Obama-Ayers-Annenberg Connection

Okay, so Obama was friends with a leftwing radical William Ayers who in his younger days bombed the Pentagon. Obama served with Ayers on a left-wing foundation that gave out grants to some rather suspect recipients. Obama brushes it off with a "he's not really close to me" even though Ayers funded one of Obama's first fundraisers. Asking Clarice Feldman to ask: If voters find out Obama was lying about his past, will it kill his chances in November?

The truth is that the two men worked closely together for years, beginning several months before that 1995 fundraiser. The fund Obama chaired and which was supposed to improve public education in Chicago never met its stated purpose of improving public school pupils’ performance and, in fact, probably hindered it, despite having blown through $110 million in the process. And as chairman of this group Obama funneled this money to politically useful types including Fidelistas and Maoists who like Ayers (now vice-president elect of the American Education Research Association) are working to make our public schools indoctrination centers for the left .
The University of Illinois on Friday after considerable criticism announced they will release the documents on the Annenberg Challenge on Tuesday. This issue will not go away.
