Fire in the Night.........

With thanks ....and a bit of regret....to Rose at Watchpaul. I am so sick of all the Politics. The Season has been too long, like a Winter that just never seems to warm up.

Next Post will be light and Fun again...but this? This is real. The associations that Barack Obama has made ....and kept, in his lifetime are telling of the quality of his Soul.............

A first hand account from a then nine year old boy, about the night that The Weather Underground attempted to kill his Family. Yup, Bill Ayers friends.....

"During the April 16 debate between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, moderator George Stephanopoulos brought up “a gentleman named William Ayers,” who “was part of the Weather Underground in the 1970s. They bombed the Pentagon, the Capitol, and other buildings. He’s never apologized for that.” Stephanopoulos then asked Obama to explain his relationship with Ayers. Obama’s answer: “The notion that somehow as a consequence of me knowing somebody who engaged in detestable acts 40 years ago, when I was eight years old, somehow reflects on me and my values, doesn’t make much sense, George.” Obama was indeed only eight in early 1970. I was only nine then, the year Ayers’s Weathermen tried to murder me." (emphasis mine)

Go and read the whole thing if you will, written by John M. Murtagh over at
City Journal

Even if I toss out the fact that I don't agree with Mr. Obamas political beliefs, his lack of experience in any sort of "Governance" as opposed to "just another warm body voting" in the Senate...I hearken back to one of Grandfathers favorite cliches...

"A Man is judged by the Company he keeps...."

There's a reason why cliches stay in the lexicon. They hold a lot of Truth.
Now....go and be Happy.........

Thanks, Rose
