Busted: Ayers Admits To Obama Fundraiser That Obama Campaign Called ‘Myth’

I remember this debate quite well as this was a hot topic on ATS at the time. So , who's lying? 3 years later and Bill Ayers speaks. Obama's defenders will simply state that Ayers is just joking or may have misspoken. Had the MSM pushed this issue and the Rev. Wright issue back then, Obama would have lost to Hillary in the primary.

In 2008 the Barack Obama for President campaign went into full denial mode accusing the McCain/Palin campaign of lying about a fundraiser held in domestic terrorist Bill Ayers's home for Barack Obama's Illinois State Senate campaign.

Watch this clip from October 15, 2008 where spokesman Robert Gibbs flat-out denies the fundraiser story to an inquiring Chris Matthews. Then watch Bill Ayers, in his own words, admit to the event himself.

Either Mr. Gibbs lied to Mr. Matthews, or Mr. Obama lied to Mr. Gibbs.

Video at the link

It would appear that Obama was indeed presented to the political world from the House of extreme radical and domestic terrorist Bill Ayers. The same man who is suspected to have written the majority of Obama's "Dreams...." autobiography

All the usual media suspects called this story a myth and a outright lie and all those who discussed were liars and racists here on ATS.

Which begs a question the MSM dare not ask. In 2008, who passed on the information that the Ayers event wasn’t a fundraiser? Did the Obama campaign lie to NPR and the Huffington Post and Politico in 2008 (not that they weren’t told what they wanted to hear) or is Bill Ayers lying today?

Maybe because he was joking???

You can tell by the laughs in the crowd...that's a little hint that it's a joke.

Sure. Not the first time that Bill was "just Joking". Its the perfect indirect admission of truth. Back in March 2011 he "joked" about writing "Dreams" too.

Unprompted, Ayers also noted that while Dreams deserves its praise, Obama’s second opus, Audacity of Hope, is “more of a political hack book.”
Not surprisingly, Ayers retreated into irony as he ended the session. “Yeah, yeah,” he said after confirming again that he wrote Dreams, “And if you help me prove it, I’ll split the royalties with you. Thank you very much.”

With his final comment, the Ayers-friendly audience laughed in relief. The media will laugh nervously upon seeing the video as well. The White House will not.

Funny thing though, back in 2009 Ayers said he wrote the book and that Michelle asked him to write it. I guess you can lie through your teeth as long its just a joke.. I don't know what in the hell to believe when you consider that its all coming from the same mouth

Oddly, this was not the first time Ayers made such a claim. Backyard Conservative reported October 4, 2009, after meeting Ayers at Reagan National Airport in Washington, D.C.:

Then, unprompted he said--I wrote Dreams From My Father. I said, oh, so you admit it. He said--Michelle asked me to. I looked at him. He seemed eager. He's about my height, short. He went on to say--and if you can prove it, we can split the royalties. So I said, stop pulling my leg. Horrible thought. But he came again--I really wrote it, the wording was similar. I said I believe you probably heavily edited it. He said--I wrote it. I said--why would I believe you, you're a liar.

He had no answer to that. Just looked at me. Then he turned and walked off, and said again his bit about my proving it and splitting the proceeds.

Now, less than eighteen months later, he's said this again in front of an audience with a camera taping the whole thing.

So?? Who cares??

So look at it this way Jibeho, you got 5 more years to Obama bash and then you can switch to a new democrat president that

1) Comes from another country
2) Is a socialist
3) Is a communist
4) Is a terrorist in disguise
5) Is not a Christian
6) etc. etc etc.

Oh and I forgot today's bs story

7) Eats horsemeat

and I remember when republicans accused Gore supporters of being sore losers.

Five more years!!! I'm moving to Canada

His goose is cooked and his plummeting poll numbers reflect it. Just like Jimmy Carter.

Newt will fill the empty seat in the Oval Office quite nicely.
