    Weather Underground terrorist-turned-academic and Obama confidant William Ayers is taking up a cause near and dear to teachers unions: bashing a program that sends young, idealistic college grads into the inner city to teach poor kids.

    Ayers is right. We have those (Teach for America ) teachers come out to the res to teach and are gone in two years. All they want is to pad their resume. That is a well known fact out here.

    And all these teachers with Teach for America are extreme liberals.
