No I didn't ignore it.
Obama isn't off the hook on that but I ask you, what specifically did Obama do that is directly attributable to Bill Ayers?
Give me a policy position, or an EO or some statement he made that is directly tied to the positions, statements or deeds of Bill Ayers.

Politician's launch their careers with the support of people who agree with them. If Bill Ayers did not agree with Barrack Obama he would not have let Obama launch his political career in his home. The mere act of having Obama's political career start in his home shows that Ayers and Obama were in agreement on many subjects.

Then you should have no difficulty drawing a bright line that connects the two!

Another attempt to discredit the source because you can't refute what it says.

LOL

One of the most amazing "facts" about argumentation is the tactic used by "conservatives" of finding a real live, true, valid, someone did say it, fact and then conclude whatever outlandish, extremist, false piece of propaganda one can concoct.

So how does one refute a source's delusional opinion??? It's kind of like trying to disprove dragons exist. If you say they exist, I can't prove they don't. Does that make your statement true or valid?

And there's the demand to prove a negative, which I am expecting any minute.

I did. The fact that Obama's career began with Ayers' help is a very bright line of their connection.

Something more than giving a talk or a coffee.
