This isn’t about the quote by Sean Connery’s character in The Untouchables. Instead, it’s John Kass of the Chicago Tribune newspaper addressing the Bill Ayers, Barack Obama connection, and Chicago machine politics.
Turn on the TV news when John McCain is picking up undecided voters by invoking Barack Obama's relationship with unrepentant American terrorist William Ayers and, invariably, some liberal talking head will sniff in disgust and say Ayers is no big deal where Obama comes from.
Unfortunately, that's true. Ayers is a terrorist. But this is Chicago.
Obama and Ayers are neighbors and they worked together on school issues with the same foundation. Obama's political coming-out party was held in Ayers' living room when Obama was running for his first political office.
Read the whole thing, and note how money is spent by the city while it’s also laying off 1,000 city workers. Let’s also note that Barack Obama has lied, distorted and attempted to minimize the facts regarding his relationship with Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn.
Perhaps it’s hardly surprising that narcissistic 60’s radicals would still be only thinking of their own aggrandizement while imagining they are somehow fighting the good fight. They’ve found a place in Chicago, despite their being unrepentant about their past, and have done quite well with selling out. Who would have thought that all the riots, violence and agitation would result in being paid to help manufacture media spin for corrupt politicians? It clearly says nothing good about Chicago politics with it’s convenient union of machine politics, radicals and domestic terrorists, although I have yet to see any of them erect Greek columns in their own honor.
