Thanks for the information. Even more reason to vote for him!

Or do you really think he will replace the secret service with the Fruit of islam when (not if) he gets elected?

Hey, I lived in some rough neighborhoods at some periods in my life too. One typically stays on friendly terms with potentially dangerous people, that doesn't mean he's going to appoint Farrakhan and Ayers to cabinet posts, more likely he'll appoint Colin Powell - or do you have problems with that darky too?

Ayers had to know Obama at a very close level to mention him in his
book along with Muhammad Ali and Louis Farrakhan. Obama lived in a
Muslim neighborhood with two other famous black Muslims

The book came out in 1998. It takes about 2-3 years to write and
publish a book, so this friendship can be placed going back to at
least 1995.

The evidence comes straight from William Ayers.
