Questions for The Messiah

Courtesy Peter Kirsanow who asks the questions the MSM just won't (surprise):

1. Sen. Obama, you dismissed your association with William Ayers by stating that his actions, while "despicable", occurred when you were just eight years old. Ayers was still a fugitive when another terrorist bomber, Ted Kaczynski (the "Unabomber") began his bombing campaign (btw Senator, you were 20 at the time). Would you have had any reservations working with Kaczynski? Would you have had any reservations launching your political career from Kaczynski's home (prior to his apprehension)? What about from the home of abortion clinic bomber Eric Rudolf? If so, please explain your criteria for working with some terrorists but not others.

2. Did you and Ayers ever discuss his participation in the bombing of the Pentagon? If so, when? How did you respond? Did you continue working with him afterward? Why? Did this discussion occur before or after he hosted your political coming-out party?

3. Did Ayers ever tell you how you were chosen to chair the Chicago Annenberg Challenge ("CAC"), given that at the time there were thousands of more experienced lawyers in Chicago?

4. Did you ever tell Ayers that his actions were "despicable"? If so, did you do so at the time you interviewed to chair the CAC or later? If not, why not?

5. As president, would you appoint any member to your cabinet who had worked with terrorists? Would you appoint any individual whose political career had been launched at the home of a terrorist? If not why not? If you consider an association with terrorists to be a disqualifier for, say, the position of attorney general or national security advisor, why shouldn't it be a disqualifier for president?

6. You had a relationship with an unrepentant terrorist and you've stated that you would meet without precondition with the leaders of terrorist-sponsoring countries. Could you please explain why voters should believe you're serious about the threat of terrorism?

7. What, if any, policy differences do you have with Ayers? Please describe.

Feel free to add any of your own in the comments.

How about 'when asked in the first debate what programs you would cut in these troubled financial times, your response only included what programs shouldn't be cut. How about answering the question, or do you not plan on cutting anything and just try to tax your way out of the problem?' Or simply point blank, 'You've been a community organizer (which included lobbying), a state senator that voted 'present' more than a few times, and a us senator for a few years, most of which you have used simply to run for president. What actual experience do you posses and what have you actually been a leader of? Therefore, why should anyone vote for you other than the most radical fringe of the left and non thinking democrats who only want to 'prove' their non prejudiceness? And finally, Bush-governor, clinton-gov., Bush-v.p., reagan-gov, carter-gov, ford-vp/long standing rep, nixon-longstanding senator and vp, kennedy-senator, eisenhower-general, etc.....what experience do you have to run for president of the most powerful nation in the world who your wife has just recently claimed for the first time to be proud of....?

Did you miss, Obama is not proud of America. From the debate... Obama's last comment.

From the transcript...
OBAMA: Well, let me just make a closing point. You know, my father came from Kenya. That's where I get my name.

And in the '60s, he wrote letter after letter to come to college here in the United States because the notion was that there was no other country on Earth where you could make it if you tried. The ideals and the values of the United States inspired the entire world.

I don't think any of us can say that our standing in the world now, the way children around the world look at the United States, is the same.

Yes. And remember: If you even dare try to have a reasoned conversation about whether, in fact, that last sentence from Obama might be true, God will strike you down. Because it's unpatriotic, dammit!
