Sure, it's revealing of Barack's character that he's even willing to hang around with an unrepentant domestic terrorist. But what should worry Americans as much is what the alliance portends for an Obama Department of Education.
As IBD points out, just two years ago (November of 2006), in Venezuala:
With [Hugo] Chavez at his side, [Bill] Ayers voiced his support for "the political educational reforms under way here in Venezuela under the leadership of President Chavez. We share the belief that education is the motor-force of revolution. . . . I look forward to seeing how . . . all of you continue to overcome the failures of capitalist education as you seek to create something truly new and deeply humane."
Ayers founded the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, which Barack chaired. During Barack's tenure as chairman, Ayers' own educational projects received funding.
This is what Barack supports, apparently, education as "the motor-force of revolution."
