Now that the election is over...
Can Ayers finally come out and state that he and Obama are family friends, like he stated before?
“We had served together on the board of a foundation, knew one another as neighbors and family friends, held an initial fund-raiser at my house, where I’d made a small donation to his earliest political campaign,” he writes." - Chicago Sun Times
"In a new afterword to his memoir, 1960s radical William Ayers describes himself as a “family friend” of President-elect Barack Obama..." - Chicago Tribune
Here is Ayers statement on Good Morning America:

- Basically Ayers is saying that just because they are associates, worked together on boards, friends in the neighborhood, he launched Obama's political career in his house, etc - doesn't mean that they think the same, share the same policies, politics, outlooks, etc. And By the way Ayes reiterates that he was demonized as was the Weather Underground as a violent organization - when he in truth he was on the "right" side. He never hurt or killed anyone.... (does he seriously want us to believe that lie?)
"Ayers defended his bomb-throwing past and repeated a statement that has infuriated his critics: "I don't think we did enough."The college professor also argued to "Good Morning America's" Chris Cuomo today that the bombing campaign by the Weather Underground, the group he helped found, was not terrorism.
The Weather Underground bombed the Capitol, the Pentagon and the New York City Police Department in protest of the Vietnam War.
"It's not terrorism because it doesn't target people, to kill or injure," Ayers said." - from ABC News
