IT'S NOT ME SAYING IT... IT'S NOT THE GOP SAYING IT...
Not even the far right wacky Tea Party is saying it (though they just might agree...)
No my friends, it's none of those folks...
It's Bill Ayers. In the Huffington Post.
Stop and savor that for just a moment.
If that's all I told you about this story that would be enough to go Woooo... dude...
The Huffington Post has been in Obama's corner since the first time he has a corner. And Bill Ayers is widely credited for kick-starting a young Barrack Obama's political career in his (Ayers) living room years ago.
How far the mighty have fallen...
But still Bill would seem to like him:Bill Ayers, former University of Illinois professor and co-founder of the violent anti-war group Weather Underground, said Tuesday that President Barack Obama should be put on trial for war crimes, according to RealClearPolitics.
"Every president in this century should be put on trial," Ayers told Charlie Stone on RealClearPolitics' "Morning Commute." “Every one of them goes into an office dripping with blood and then adds to it. And, yes, I think that these are war crimes. I think that they’re acts of terror.”
Not out of line I suppose... a terrorist liking a guy, and yet claiming that that very same guy should be tired for war crimes. Kind of an 'expert' opinion?"He's a curious person. One of the things I like about him is he's curious. He wants to know things. He asks questions, he's not just charming, he's also interested. He reads," Ayers said. "I liked him personally -- he's a really good guy."
Ayers has a complicated history with the president. There's no proof Ayers and Obama were ever friends, but the men reportedly worked together on the board of a Chicago-based charity. Ayers also hosted a campaign event when Obama first ran for office in the 1990s.
Takes one to know one?
Interesting to see a story like this anywhere in the media to the left of Rush's show.
Then again Bill Ayers as a self-described Marxist is pretty far left.
Bill Ayers: Obama Should Be Tried For War Crimes
In the last few years it's become very fashionable to decry presidents and other world leaders with whom you disagree with as being war criminals. Doing so doesn't make it any more true.
There are official definitions of this, as there are officials that are supposed to create the cases documenting such. I have to believe that if such was the case, there'd be a case open in The Hague, but yet, none is ever produced, at least that I'm aware of.
So I have to believe that it's just so much more hot air from the clueless.

Thought for the day:
We are always hearing about how Social Security is going to run out of money.
How come we never hear about Welfare running out of money?
