Evidence has established that Obama is friends with at least two people with a communist and terrorist past: William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, formerly of the Weather Underground. Ayers and Dohrn, the married couple that helped to launch Obama’s political career in 1995, were both involved in terrorist bombings in the United States. Members of their cell killed people.
Obama, who has consistently downplayed his relationship with Ayers and Dohrn, has yet to give a satisfactory public accounting of why he thought it was no big deal to be friends with these unrepentant criminals. It is the media’s job to keep pressing him, and that’s exactly what Freddoso has been doing.
THE OBAMA CAMPAIGN had the same modus operandi August 27 when it attempted to mau-mau Freddoso’s fellow National Review writer, Stanley Kurtz, during his appearance on “Extension 720.” Kurtz had traveled to the University of Illinois at Chicago to research the education reform project known as the Chicago Annenberg Challenge because both Obama and his friend Ayers were involved in it.
Instead of putting on a campaign spokesman to challenge Kurtz’s arguments, the campaign tried to shut down the show. Obama supporters inundated the show with telephone calls and picketed outside the studio. They also called other talk shows and regurgitated the talking points the campaign fed them.
Radio talk show host Mark Levin launched one of his famous “Levin surges” after tiring of the rote recitations from Obamabots on his show’s call-in line. Levin read the campaign headquarters phone number on air and encouraged his listeners to swamp that line with complaints.
Will Obama Action Wire launch a vendetta against Levin now?
Freddoso has made it clear he thinks it’s silly and counterproductive to wallow in conspiracy theories such as the one that claims Obama isn’t a U.S. citizen, the one that claims he isn’t a Christian, or the one that claims he is some kind of Manchurian candidate surreptitiously inserted into the presidential contest by America’s enemies.
Without name-calling or innuendo, Freddoso makes the case that Obama is simply a liberal machine politician, and “not an agent of hope and change.” (See my “Organization Watch” interview from August 26, partial transcript here.)
Freddoso a dishonest, extreme hate monger? Give me a break.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
