Not So Breitbart: Pathetic Vetting Of Obama’s BBQ With Bill Ayers

The “vetting” of Barack Obama continues at Breitbart News and, true to form, serves only to embarrass the juvenile efforts of Breitbrat Joel Pollak and his childish pals who suffer an acute case of Obama Derangement Syndrome. Today’s banner headline at the Breitbrats sandbox blares: “Exclusive – The Vetting – Senator Barack Obama Attended Bill Ayers Barbecue, July 4, 2005.”

Breitbart News

OMG! Barack Obama has been caught at a clandestine socialist assembly of treasonous celebrants of America’s independence. These subversives were observed igniting fires (in BBQ grills) and launching explosives (fireworks). They may even have been imbibing beer and other alcoholic intoxicants.

Breitbrat Joel is clearly proud of the shocking revelation he has uncovered that puts Obama in the backyard of his neighbor, Bill Ayres, for an ostensibly patriotic party. The “proof” that so excites Pollak is an ancient blog post by another neighbor of Ayers that describes a third-hand witness to Obama sharing a picnic table at a Fourth of July gathering. The author said…

“Guess what? I spent the 4th of July evening with star Democrat Barack Obama! Actually, that’s a lie. Obama was at a barbecue at the house next door (given by a law professor who is a former member of the Weather Underground) and we saw him over the fence at our barbecue. Well, the others did. It had started raining and he had gone inside be the time I got there. Nevertheless.”

Well then, that settles it. The author of the post never saw the then-senator, but some unnamed person claims to have seen him. And there couldn’t be any possibility of this mysterious party guest making a mistake, could there? The post goes on to note that despite keeping a watch out for a confirmation siting, there were no other Obama spottings. The only corroboration was “another source” quoted by Pollak who was also not identified.

Even if true, Pollak’s unrestrained glee over this “discovery” means nothing. It stems from his false contention that Obama’s socializing with Ayers contradicts a statement his campaign issued in 2008. However, the quote that Pollak himself posted says…

“Mr. LaBolt said the men first met in 1995 through the education project, the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, and have encountered each other occasionally in public life or in the neighborhood. He said they have not spoken by phone or exchanged e-mail messages since Mr. Obama began serving in the United States Senate in January 2005 and last met more than a year ago when they bumped into each other on the street in Hyde Park.”

Of course, there is nothing in that statement that conflicts with an account of Obama encountering Ayers at a neighborhood party. In fact, it explicitly affirms that Obama had such contacts “in the neighborhood.” Where’s the controversy?

Pollak is plainly obsessed with smearing Obama for having had a relationship with a neighbor who was also a respected university professor and education consultant. But Pollak’s pea-brain can only contain information about Ayers that portrays him as the “radical, domestic terrorist” of his youth some forty years ago. Pollak cannot see past his hostility toward Obama, and the result is hysterical conspiracy tantrums like this. It’s the same sort of dementia that produces absurd postings on Fox Nation like today’s article that proposes that Obama had an “unpresidential” past:

Fox Nation

The past to which the Fox Nationalists refer is his adolescence when he did unpresidential things like play basketball and wear hats. Seriously? This is the best they can do?

  1. Beritbrats have BOTH RDS and ODS. The RDS was displayed (and is still being displayed) in any article that condemns any “supposed attack” on Romney and his faith. As for the ODS, well it’s pretty much everywhere.

    I guess we should add another “DS” to the Beritbrat’s resume, “MMDS”, Mainstream Media Derangement syndrome. This is shown when they criticize MSM for not reporting on things they want reported on (like Rev Wright, Bill Ayers etc) and for reporting on things they don’t want reported on (now on the menu, Romney’s sordid past, ANYTHING that can be contrived as a “supposed attack against Romney”).

    Sometimes however they can’t really make up their minds:

    The media is NOT baised, yet it IS!!!

    and that’s that the media is neither biased nor out of touch, but that they are out to destroy Romney’s candidacy in order to reelect Obama

    Actual quote from the article, yeah I’d say they should cut down on all that DS of theirs, they have enough on their hands with their BS alone.

  2. Being a pal with an America-hating communist terrorist is bad. Understand?

    • Living forty years in the past and having your head up your ass is bad. Understand?

      • The bbq was in 2005. Personal insults won’t change the fact that president Obama is pals with an America-hating communist former terrorist. Sorry.

        • But Ayers Weatherman activities were in the 1960’s. In 2005 he was a college professor. He is not a communist and he doesn’t hate America any more than you do.

          • So we are to assume that working for a university makes one incapable of being an America-hating communist? lol. Obama is comrades with a man who planned mass murders in the late 60s , a proud terrorist who has never expressed regret for his horrific crimes. No way to spin it.

            • You don’t know what you’re talking about. You’re just hurling wild and false accusations. You’re no better than the birthers.

            • what was false? More name calling doesn’t change the facts.
              Fact 1 , obama is homeboys with ayers
              Fact 2, ayers is a communist former terrorist

              Its pretty basic.

            • Both of those “facts” are false.

              Obama was an acquaintance and neighbor of Ayers. And Ayers is not a communist.

              Seriously, join the rest of us in the 21st century. David Horowitz was an SDS member just like Ayers 40 years ago. Is he a communist?

              You’re fixation on the past and inability to accept that things have changed in four decades borders on dementia. Plus, it’s getting really boring. I’m through trying to bring you up to date. Obviously you enjoy being obsolete and deliberately dishonest, and it serves your Obama Derangement.

  3. Did the Bush family do business with the Bin Laden family? and if they did what does that say?, according to the fallacious arguments of the Breitbrats.

  4. Can somebody explain to me what an “unpresidential” childhood is, or a presidential one for that matter? I mean it’s not like Eisenhower spent his youth in cabinet meetings and pretending to give stump speeches for his election. That’s an absurd charge to level at any sitting president – but I must consider the source I suppose.
