Memo to the media -- This relationship IS a legitimate issue

Barack Obama has a past that he'd prefer be unobserved and uninvestigated, but we can't let that slide. The media doesn't want to cover it, and that includes his relationship with former unrepentant domestic terrorist William Ayers. Marc Ambinder wonders what the big to-do is about this relationship:

What "radical" ideas did Obama and Bill Ayres come up with to foist on the Chicago school system?

What specific projects -- "radical" projects -- did Obama work on with Ayres? Is there evidence that they collaborated and schemed to ... do anything "radical" together? Ever?

Is the real story here that Obama once served on the board of a liberal education charity?

Over at Just One Minute, Tom Maguire fills in some of the blanks for poor Marc

Steve Diamond, who has been advancing this story for months, has a summary here and a full paper devoted to the Ayers education agenda. From the summary:

Rather, I think there was a more pressing purpose at the heart of the award and the support it engendered among certain elite institutions and individuals in Chicago. Ironically, while Kurtz wants to tar Obama with the red paint brush of the 60s "radical" Ayers, an understanding of the real purpose of the CAC indicates a much closer political alliance between Obama and Ayers.

The grant application itself and much of what the CAC was up to emerged in the heated "Chicago School Wars" underway in that city from the late 1980s until the late 1990s. This war was for the control of Chicago's public schools.


One side in this war was controlled by Mayor Richard M. Daley, Jr., son of the legendary Mayor Daley.

And the other side was led by Ayers and a small group of reformers that had emerged several years earlier in 1988 during a battle to create a new power center in the Chicago schools, the so-called Local School Councils, or LSCs. The LSCs were an effort to rein in the power of unionized teachers, school principals and school administrators, in the wake of an unpopular teachers' strike in 1987.

This milieu around Ayers also included, as far back as the late 80s, Barack Obama and the Developing Communities Project (DCP) that had hired Obama as its Executive Director in 1985. The DCP was a leading participant in the campaign to establish the LSCs.

Thus, in fact, the "radical" Bill Ayers and his ally Barack Obama, a Democratic political activist and lawyer on the rise in Chicago, were engaged in an anti-union effort to influence the direction and nature of the entire Chicago public school system. It would lead them into a battle with Mayor Daley himself.

While the Chicago Annenberg Challenge did inject a level of left-wing radicalism into the school system, as Stanley Kurtz has discovered by finally gaining access to the CAC records that he had previously been forbidden to examine, it does seem that this directly led to a stand-off between them and the mayor of Chicago.

We agree with Tom Maguire with regard to the real questions about their relationship and why that can't be the focus of the questions. David Axelrod tried to spin their relationship as something other than what it appears to be. The media has dropped the ball on this aspect of Obama's past. In fact, the media has dropped the ball in vetting their favored candidate completely. Back in July Rasmussen reported that the electorate believed the press was biased in favor of Obama, which should come as no surprise to anyone. Well, at least it doesn't to us, but the Left might be surprised to discover that.

This is a legitimate issue, but it's clear that the media has no intention of investigating it. (That also goes back to that Rasmussen poll that showed 45% of those polled believed the press would purposefully cover up anything that might be deemed damaging to Obama.) The media won't touch this relationship at all, and the responsibility of investigation has fallen to the New Media. We're not surprised by that, but it does speak volumes about where the media's loyalty really lies. It's obvious they no longer care about the news. And the moral to this story is that this is definitely the year that the MSM officially died.

George W. Bush’s secret dislike or hatred of Barack Obama must be made known.

“PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH was accused in a criminal complaint and lawsuit of raping Margie Schoedinger, who later mysteriously committed suicide. Tammy Phillips, a former stripper, claimed she had an affair with Bush that had ended in 1999” (Larbabe. Retrieved November 29, 2008, from http://www.dailykos.com/story/2007/7/11/11211/3539).

“And George Bush killed/had killed Margie Schoedinger” (Retrieved November 29, 2008, from http://newsgroups.derkeiler.com/Archive/Alt/alt.sports.baseball.ny-mets/2005-11/msg00613.html).

In the case that George W. Bush hired or caused another to murder Margie Schoedinger for him, the law says that Bush is criminally responsible for the murder of Margie Schoedinger in the way he would be if he had murdered her with his own hands—first degree murder. Maybe not every person would have known that this is the way the law works.

“George W Bush raped Margie Schoedinger, who later committed suicide” (Retrieved November 29, 2008, from http://perceptionmanagers.org/2006_09_24_archive.html).

George W. Bush is wicked. Bush is in big trouble. There is no statute of limitations for murder, and thus the government can indict or charge Bush for the murder of Margie Schoedinger at any time if and when it is prepared to prove that Bush committed this gruesome crime beyond a reasonable doubt.

“George Bush needs to go to jail for the murder of Margie Schoedinger” (Rayrayischillin. Retrieved November 29, 2008, from http://www.bossip.com/56978/for-discussion-a-dick-is-indicted/).

Moreover, George W. Bush needs to burn in hell for the murder of Margie Schoedinger.

“Who is Margie Schoedinger? A MUST READ! Woman had a law suit against then, Texas Governor George W Bush for rape and kidnapping. She turned up murdered” (Retrieved November 29, 2008, from http://www.spirituallysmart.com/bush.html).

Everybody should know that Margie Schoedinger was an African-American woman who was murdered by George W. Bush.

“One of those very least were George Bush’s personal complicity in the death (murder to be precise) of my friend Margie Schoedinger in September of 2003. Determining the exact whereabouts and contacts of [then] president-elect George Bush on September 21 thru 22, 2003, should be entirely lacking in difficulty” (Leola McConnell (Nevada Progressive Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate in 2010). Retrieved November 29, 2008, from http://leolaforussenate.blogspot.com/2008/02/leola-mcconnell-for-us-senate.html).

George W. Bush should come forward and confess that he murdered an African-American woman—Margie Schoedinger.

“Who Killed Margie Schoedinger? . . . The Schoedinger death is just the latest in a string of strange ones surrounding the Bush family - Bush biographer J.H. Hatfield, Sen. Paul Wellstone, Sen. Mel Carnahan, and others that are detailed on various sites” (Ruffhowse. Retrieved November 29, 2008, from http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=104x2802130).

George W. Bush must repent relative to his murder of an African-American woman—Margie Schoedinger.

“It has been gnawing at my brain, an unpleasant blight underlying everything, and I am finally compelled to devote some space to the strange, heartbreaking, outrageous, depressing and terrifying story of Margie Schoedinger, literally driven crazy to death (or most likely physically murdered outright) after being robbed of her humanity and right to any kind of meaningful existence by the former governor of Texas, the fraud, the incompetent imperial barbarian who cheated his way into the position of president of the formerly great United States of America, George ‘Waste-product’ Bush . . . Who Killed Margie Schoedinger?” (Retrieved November 29, 2008, from http://blatanttruth.org/bushcrimefamily.php).

Of course George W. Bush killed Margie Schoedinger. As described in the quotation above, Bush robbed an African-American woman of her humanity and right to any kind of meaningful existence. Bush must be punished for this.

“The Strange Death of the Woman Who Filed a Rape Lawsuit Against Bush . . . Early one Saturday afternoon in July 2003, I made a simple phone call to Margie Schoedinger, a Texas woman who filed a rape lawsuit against George W. Bush in December 2002. . . . She sounded like someone who wanted the truth to come out. And now she’s dead” (Jackson Thoreau. Retrieved November 29, 2008, from http://www.opednews.com/thoreau1103bush_rape_suicide.htm).

She is dead because George W. Bush murdered her. This is, in a way, like the period of slavery in America in that a white person killed a black person, and there is no court, prosecutor, or sheriff around to uphold the rule of law or seriously pursue punishment against the killer. George W. Bush’s murder of an African-American woman is shocking to the conscience. According to the law, Bush should be incarcerated for the rest of his life or executed for this murder.

“When George W. Bush is convicted of having Margie Schoedinger murdered, will he have to share a jail cell?”

“Call me MISTER PRESIDENT” responded: “No, he should be sent to serve in IRAQ until the MISSION is ACCOMPLISHED.”

“Falstaff” responded: “I hope that something is done by the justice department during the next administration.”

“See Raymond Ponzini’s ‘An American Caligula’ to learn more about Bush’s murder of Margie Schoedinger” (Jim. Retrieved November 28, 2008, from http://www.websitetoolbox.com/tool/post/whosarat/vpost?id=1914428).

George W. Bush murdered an African-American woman. Margie Schoedinger is gone forever. George W. Bush must pay for this. I can’t believe Bush murdered an African-American woman within the period of the modern-day democracy of the United States of America and is still getting away with it.

“George W Bush A Rapist? . . . In December 2002, a 38-year-old black woman from Texas filed a civil lawsuit against George W Bush accusing the President of drugging and raping her. Nine months later, she was dead. . . . Maybe this poor woman was deluded and killed herself but the authorities had to admit under duress that Bush did indeed have a relationship with her. It would not be the first time that the Sugar Land Police Department and Harris County Medical Examiner’s office have been involved in a murder covered up as a suicide (former Enron executive John Clifford Baxter for example). . . . I am pretty certain that George Chimpy McSmirker Bush is the sort of individual that would do anything to cover his tracks and certainly holds the power and influence to do so in our world’s most corrupt nation” (Retrieved November 28, 2008, from http://www.slimybastards.com/2007/09/george-w-bush-rapist.html).

“Lawsuit Alleging Bush as a Rapist!? . . . Woman files lawsuit against President . . . Margie Schoedinger of Missouri City, Texas has filed a lawsuit against George W. Bush in Fort Bend County Court. In her suit she is alleging ‘race based harassment and individual sex crimes committed against her and her husband.’ The suit lists numerous offenses and asks for actual damages, punitive damages and judgments against George W. Bush” (Posted by Drizzten. Retrieved November 28, 2008, from http://drizzten.com/blargchives/000130.html).

George W. Bush is absolute evil.

George W. Bush’s murder of Margie Schoedinger may also constitute criminal retaliation against victim or witness.

“I believe that George W. Bush hates Moslems. All that garbage about freedom, democracy, and the right to vote is a pollution of their culture. I believe that George W. Bush hates immigrants. There were a lot of immigrants working in the World Trade Center and George W. Bush didn’t warn them ahead of time” (Janet M. Stroble. (2006, April 12). Now I Believe. http://www.military.com/. Retrieved November 26, 2008, from http://www.military.com/opinion/0,15202,94064,00.html).

“[In addition to black people, George W. Bush also dislikes] arabs, muslims, asians and pretty much anyone not white” (Allen Bina. Retrieved November 26, 2008, from http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendID=7231047&blogID=55351762&indicate=1).

It appears that Allen Bina’s statement is, in any case, sufficiently true or accurate or valid. George W. Bush is so mentally ill and requires involuntary psychiatric hospitalization.

“I believe that George W. Bush hates black people. Through secret government machinations, he caused Hurricane Katrina to form and aimed it at New Orleans on purpose, just so he could wipe out lots of poor blacks. I also believe that before the hurricane hit, he snuck into New Orleans and stole the keys to every school bus in the city to make evacuation of poor people impossible” (Janet M. Stroble. (2006, April 12). Now I Believe. http://www.military.com/. Retrieved November 26, 2008, from http://www.military.com/opinion/0,15202,94064,00.html).

George W. Bush’s relentless racial discrimination against black people is tragic.

“I believe George W. Bush stole the 2004 Presidential election. He did it by making it rain in Ohio on election day, then by denying government-funded umbrellas to poor black people waiting in line” (Janet M. Stroble. (2006, April 12). Now I Believe. http://www.military.com/. Retrieved November 26, 2008, from http://www.military.com/opinion/0,15202,94064,00.html).

George W. Bush must change: he must abandon his hatred of black people. Bush has gone off the deep end in his racial discrimination against black people.

“I believe George W. Bush stole the 2000 Presidential election in Florida. He did it by confusing illiterate black people, by declaring thousands of soldiers’ votes invalid, and by promising not to aim any more hurricanes at the state as long as he was President” (Janet M. Stroble. (2006, April 12). Now I Believe. http://www.military.com/. Retrieved November 26, 2008, from http://www.military.com/opinion/0,15202,94064,00.html).

George W. Bush’s vicious hatred of black people will blow you away.

“‘We have a president who was selected rather than elected. He stole the presidency through family ties, arrogance and intimidation, employing Republican operatives to exercise the tactics of voter fraud by disenfranchising thousands of blacks, elderly Jews and other minorities’” (Barbra Streisand at BarbraStreisand.com. Retrieved November 26, 2008, from http://mindprod.com/politics/election.html).

There seems to be no end to the racial prejudices of George W. Bush: he is just about the most disgusting person one can imagine.

“Feds Raid Al Sharpton’s Office . . . This is only happening because he’s a black man living in BusHitler’s America” (Posted by Dirty Harry. Retrieved November 23, 2008, from http://dirtyharrysplace.com/?m=200712).

George W. Bush hates black people.

“I noted before how Galloway invoked Katrina (the Bush Regime’s shocking racism revealed by, the shame of troops in Iraq when they should be in New Orleans, the opulent Bush vacations, tax cuts for the rich instead of money for levees, etc etc etc.), along with almost every other hot button in the campus Left agenda. He also worked himself into a righteous froth over Barbara Bush’s Astrodome remark. The student activist who introduced the event (which you can hear here, about a third of the way in) proudly announced some initiative - which had Galloway’s imprimatur - to send students down to Mississippi to help with Katrina relief. Coordinated with Veterans for Peace, but that’s just a coincidence, right? This is about helping poor black people oppressed by the Bushitler’s racism, not about forcing a connection between Katrina and Iraq, right?” (Yehudit. Retrieved November 23, 2008, from http://www.orglearningblog.com/archives/natural-disasters/).

George W. Bush’s hatred of black people is extremely disturbing.

“So I wonder if they are going to run into folks like these poor oppressed black victims of the Bushitler in the Astrodome. . . .” (Yehudit. Retrieved November 23, 2008, from http://www.orglearningblog.com/archives/natural-disasters/).
