No offense to the college reference, I didn't know your age or status. Being in college, you have to admit there are others who do not have a clue as to something as simple as the VP, but still support one party or the other for the wrong reason.
As far as your fellow mensan "falling for..." comment, you are missing the big picture.
Obama said this man, Ayres, was a passing acquaintance that lived in his neighborhood. Which was the first lie. Then he said it was some guy who kids went to the same school with his kids. Second lie, Ayres kids were out of school at the time Obamas kids were going to school (over a 20 year difference).
Obamas own camp said that Barrack launched his career in Ayres living room. But Obama said he didn't know about the terrorist past. Ayres and Barrack sat on committees together and Ayres was instrumental in getting Barrack put in the position of President or Chairman of said committee. Still Barrack didn't know who he was deeply involved with. By the way your definition of a reformed criminal made a public statement on September 11, 2001 that he regretted not doing more bombing himself. Obama knew him seven years ago, didn't he and Obama was 38, not 8.
So either Barrack Obama is an idiot for not having a clue as to the people he associates with, or is lying....I'm guessing the latter. Just like how Barrack dismissed knowing anything about Rev. Wright. Sure, he sat in his church for 20+ years of Sundays, had him perform the marriage to Michelle, baptise his children, and include him as a spiritual advisor in his campaign. But didn't know anything about the man who brought him to Christianity. Once again, either an idiot or liar.
This is not touching on any of the other seedy characters that Barrack was closely associated with, and the response is "Look at McCain and the Keating 5". The other response is "Nobody cares about associations" Well some people do feel that water finds its own level and bird of a feather flock together.
There are only two logical conclusions, either he has had many close associations with radicals and knew about it, then lied. Or had the same associations without the common sense or judgement to know who he was in bed with. Either way, you know if the table were turned the same acceptance would not apply to McCain, or any other Republican for that matter.
The "Nobody cares" response was the same one Bill Clinton used when was impeached for lying under oath to congress. All of FOB
said "nobody cares about sex". Did they ever say "nobody cares that the President lied under oath?, no."
Since you were under 10 when this happened I wouldn't expect you to know any of these facts. Wait a minute, I bet you do, and you aren't even running for President.
BTW a President having an affair with an intern, not much older than your girlfriend, was a embarrassment to the office and this country. None the less, the impeachment was for lying. He didn't even have the decency to step down from office. His only defense was the argument "It depends on what the definition if is, is". He was another piece of shit and liar. Just like your choice of our next President. Different situation, but a liar is liar is a liar.
May God help us all.
