McCain and Eric Rudolph

Did you hear?? John McCain worked with Eric Rudolph (abortion clinic bomber) for years on his committee to promote adult education in the south.

Of course you didn’t hear it because it isn’t true. But can you imagine if it WERE true!!!? McCain wouldn’t even be running for president.
Even the thought of McCain meeting Eric Rudolph is distasteful to me. And I’m sure to most people.

Which is why it’s completely fair for McCain/Palin to be bringing up Bill Ayers now.

It isn’t “racist”. Sheesh.
As always The Anchoress has a ton of good links. (including this link to Michelle Malkin observing what is probably the problem with the now removed SNL skit of Pelosi/Frank/Bush discussing the bailout. It was a classic and actually showed the Democrats as blameworthy along with homeowners and subprime sellers. You’ll be sorry you missed it.)

And Uncorrelated describes this Obama episode similarly to how I described his big speech on race.
Obama hung out with Ayers without 2 cents of thought given to it because it seemed normal/fine to him.

I can really only think of one plausible reason (I gladly invite other perspectives…). The Obama campaign, including the candidate himself, have been so isolated within the leftist culture, that they literally can’t see how these relationships could be seen as a problem.

Mick goes on to note that as a conservative in a conservative state he can still see liberals and understand what they are thinking. However a person can easily be in many places, ie Chicago, get caught up in liberal thinking and not even see that there might be another way.

“Ooh – it never even occurred to me that Reverand Wright was a racist ranter. I thought it was normal.”
“Ooh – I figured as long as Ayers was now into community service that all was cool with him.”

Why does Obama think this? Because that’s what the left thinks. He’s surrounded by it and not intellectually curious enough to reach out to those who might think differently.

As Mick notes:

It hard to imagine someone like Barack Obama, so completely removed from the reality of more than half the country, actually sitting in the oval office and making policy. How does one govern a country one doesn’t understand or respect?

Badly I imagine.


UPDATE: Thomas Sowell suggests using the word “ally” vs “friendly” or “associate” when talking about Ayers et al. I don’t disagree.

  1. You seem to imply there is something wrong if a babykilling abortion mill is burned or bomb. Which do you prefer, a pile of bricks or a pile of dead babies? Innocent unborn babies deserve to be protected just as born children deserve to be protected. You would have no problem protecting born children if they were about to be murdered.
    SAY THIS PRAYER: Dear Jesus, I am a sinner and am headed to eternal hell because of my sins. I believe you died on the cross to take away my sins and to take me to heaven. Jesus, I ask you now to come into my heart and take away my sins and give me eternal life.

  2. I don’t seem to imply anything. Terrorism is terrorism is terrorism.

    A woman has a right to choose what to do with her own body. If that baby/fetus wants to survive without her, good luck to it. In the meantime, she gets to decide.

    I am implying that McCain would not be in this election IF he had befriended Rudolph, even if the guy was a next door neighbor. It wouldn’t be tolerated.

    So why the left is upset about Palin/McCain bringing up Ayers is beyond me.

  3. A religious minister promoting violence to punish those not of his faith? Sounds familiar…

  4. I’m not sure who you’re talking about Eric.

    And may I add, what the hell are people reading here?!!
    Can someone maybe comment on the actual point of the post, if you’re going to bother commenting at all???! Sheesh.
