It would seem that Obama's powers now extend to redeeming terrorists. To summarize: Ayers was a terrorist, but he stopped, so now he is cool. Since Obama was only 8 at the time he was blowing people up, it is totally cool that they are now buddies.
I really fail to see how a person that used to blow up people is now okay because he has stopped blowing up people. Now I am all about forgiveness and all, but not when the only reason is because of his association with the Obama. Had the media covered this organization and this man in any other time or without his association, they would have crucified him as an evil terrorist trying to kill your babies.
