Victim of Obama Associate Bill Ayers Speaks

John Murtaugh was nine years old when his home in New York was bombed by the leftist radicals known as the Weather Underground.  Led by Obama associate (friend? supporter?) Bill Ayers, this bomb was intended to kill Murtaugh’s father, who was the judge presiding over the Panther 21 trial. No one was killed, much to Ayers’ regret.

Mr. Murtaugh wrote earlier this year in the City Journal, “Nobody should hold the junior senator from Illinois responsible for his friends’ and supporters’ violent terrorist acts. But it is fair to hold him responsible for a startling lack of judgment in his choice of mentors, associates, and friends, and for showing a callous disregard for the lives they damaged and the hatred they have demonstrated for this country. It is fair, too, to ask what those choices say about Obama’s own beliefs, his philosophy, and the direction he would take our nation.”  In three sentences, Murtaugh has summed up what this election is all about: the character of Barack Obama. Nobody is calling Obama a terrorist, but we are asking serious questions about his way of thinking and his judgment.  We want to know the true nature of his character, as it may not be what he is projecting on the campaign trail. Hear that, Senator McCain?
