    A PAST association with a former terrorist has returned to haunt Barack Obama as the battle for the Democratic presidential nomination nears its end game.

    Republicans are turning on Obama for his connection with William Ayers, once a member of the Weather Underground, a terrorist group that bombed the Capitol, the Pentagon and the State Department in the 1970s.

    Ayers was loosely involved in Obama’s election as an Illinois state senator in the late 1990s, when he was introduced to local activists at a meeting in his house. He also donated $200 to Obama’s reelection campaign in 2001.

    Obama served with Ayers on the board of the Woods Fund, a philanthropic foundation, for three years and shared a platform with him at two academic conferences.

    Republicans must be scared of Obama if they are attacking him now. Dirt like this would have been doom in the general election but it seems they don't want to chance a general election against Obama. They'd rather run against Hillary.

    One of those things that makes you go, HHHhhhmmm???

    Doesn't seem like the republicrats would want to open themselves up to scrutiny by crying foul about Obama and the demopublican's ties seeing as how many of them have ties to terrorist organizations too.
